After running as champion of the left in 2016, Sen. Bernard Sanders revealed himself Monday to be an aspiring millionaire with an eye on reaching out to disaffected Trump voters as he prepares for a presidential campaign in 2020.

Mr. Sanders released 10 years of tax returns, showing he earned more than $2.7 million over the past three years and did not give a big percentage of his income to charity.

He became the first high-profile Democrat to hold a town hall on

California Logic: Raise Gas Taxes – Demand Investigation Into Why Gas Prices Are High

Share

/ Freedom Outpost

California is home to some of the most power-hungry politicians on Earth. These people actually hiked the gasoline tax, and are now demanding an investigation into why gas prices are higher in California than elsewhere in the United States. It would be sad if it wasn’t so insane.

California Governor Gavin Newson is demanding an investigation into why the state’s gas prices are so high. But as Reason points out, it’s not all that difficult to see what that California politicians are the culprit. In fact, the reason the gas prices are high is that Newsom (and other

Of all the devotees to the left’s fervent cult-like religious belief in man-made climate change, perhaps none have been more annoying, and provably wrong, than former Secretary of State John Kerry — save perhaps for the climate change cult leader himself, former Vice President Al Gore.

As a top official in former President Barack Obama’s administration, Kerry used his position and clout to further the narrative that human activity was causing devastating damage to the earth’s climate, so much so that drastic action needed to be taken, such as raising

NY Needs Money So Desperately, It’s Considering Charging People To Enter Heart of NYC

State Has Unreal Plan For Drivers Entering City Center BY BEN MARQUIS /WJ The state of New York is facing a budgetary shortfall, in large part due to the ongoing exodus of residents fleeing high taxes and restrictive regulations imposed on the citizenry.

Meanwhile, New York City is facing the longstanding and growing problems of too much traffic congestion from motorists and too few funds to improve and maintain mass transit systems like buses and subways.

Thus, lawmakers in Albany have devised a plan that they believe will address those problems in one fell swoop, but which in actuality could make those issues even worse, if not give rise to new problems and

Small business owners are pushing back against Democratic mischaracterizations of President Donald Trump’s signature Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

More than a year after the legislation went into effect—slashing personal and corporate tax rates across the board—the focus has shifted from worker bonuses and wage increases to shrinking tax refunds. The latter, resulting from a decrease in the level of taxes paid throughout the year and Continue reading…

WILFORD: MEDIA PRAISES ITSELF FOR MISLEADING AMERICANS ON TAX CUTS

Share

OPINION

Andrew Wilford | National Taxpayers’ Union Foundation/DC

While conservatives won the legislative war, polling shows that liberal groups are still winning the messaging battle around the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). A very effective campaign convinced the American public that the “#GOPTaxScam” would take from their paychecks and hand the wealthy a tax cut.

That this factually-bankrupt campaign was able to take place with so little resistance (and sometimes even with support) from major media outlets may strike many as unsurprising, but the messengers don’t usually so publicly pat themselves on the back for deceiving the American public in an open forum.
