BY: / Washington Free Beacon.

Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) has yet to take the speaker’s gavel of the U.S. House of Representatives, but Democrats are already laboring to make it easier to dismantle the achievements of the Trump presidency.

The incoming chairman of the House Rules Committee, Rep. Jim McGovern (D., Mass.), confirmed to colleagues on Wednesday that he would not honor the three-fifths supermajority requirement to raise income taxes, as reported by the Washington Post.

McGovern’s decision overturns a rule implemented under outgoing Speaker

Rewriting history may obscure facts but it doesn’t change them

By Stephen Moore, Washington Times

 

The eulogies for George H.W. Bush keep rolling in and a great American hero’s life has been given proper tribute.

But there has also been a rewriting of history about the Bush presidency that needs to be cleared up. Liberals love George H.W. Bush for the very tax increase betrayal that destroyed his presidency. This was the official end of the Reagan Era. This was not just the political blunder of the half-century, it was a fiscal policy catastrophe.

Most readers who are under the age of 40 have no idea of the real story of what happened. What the history books are writing is that Mr. Bush showed political “courage” in breaking his “Read my lips:

How Scott Walker and the GOP Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Corporate Welfare

Share

No longer the party of truly free markets, some Republicans have come to view the government as a mere vehicle for job creation.

By Michael Rieger @fee.org

“It’s not the government that creates jobs; it’s the people who create jobs. The best thing we can do is get the government out of the way.” That’s what Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker said back in 2012. If only he’d taken his own advice.

Corporate Welfare at the Expense of Citizens

In his second and last term as Wisconsin governor, Walker approved a deal in which the state and local governments of Wisconsin will provide nearly $4.8 billion in tax breaks and subsidies to Foxconn, a Taiwanese electronics company, so

America’s Success Was Achieved by Limiting Government, Not by Government

Share

Our gains are actually due to centuries of voluntary arrangements made possible not by the growth of government but by strict limitations imposed on it.

By Gary M. Galles @fee.org

Then-President Obama’s famous 2012 “you didn’t build that” rationalization for not only increasing taxes but also for increasingly progressive taxes has returned to public consciousness. Cato policy analyst Derek Bonett has focused attention back on the logic of his argument, as well as reminded us that Obama was channeling a 2011 campaign speech by 2020 presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren. And David Henderson has spread the word about that thought process, which was shared among self-designated progressives.

The thrust of the counter-argument they offer is that differing earnings across people

By the Numbers: Welfare for Illegals

Noncitizens consume far more in welfare benefits and are much less likely to have health insurance.

By Jordan Candler · at the Patriot Post/https://patriotpost.us/articles/59883

A few months ago we reported that leftists were apoplectic over Trump-fearing noncitizens ditching federal nutritional aid. As we noted then, “The extent of federal aid even among citizens is contentious and financially burdensome, but providing aid to immigrants is downright controversial.” Particularly when you consider just how widespread the problem has been.

The following statistics are relayed by Investor’s Business Daily based on information from a Center for Immigration Studies census analysis:

The Unseen Economic Benefits of Brexit

Our focus on the immediate costs of EU departure risks blinding us to the very real costs of maintaining the status quo.

By Madeline Grant @fee.org

 

In a now-famous essay, “What is Seen and What Is Not Seen,” the great economist Frederic Bastiat warned against judging the value of any activity in a vacuum.

Bastiat’s “broken window fallacy” brilliantly exposes a common tendency to focus on the visible, tangible benefits of an action—the “seen”—while neglecting the “unseen” penalties and long-term drawbacks associated with the same activity—the invisible cost of opportunities foregone.

Though he wrote the essay in 19th-century France, Bastiat’s insights have a timeless wisdom. We live with the consequences of reductive “broken window” thinking every day,

Illegal Aliens Cost the U.S.A. $18.5 BILLION a Year in Health Care Costs

Share

/godfatherpolitics

Illegal Aliens are costing the U.S. billions a year in health care costs that the illegals never pay for, a report says. And that is even though federal law supposedly prohibits this spending.

Federal law claims that no federal dollars can go to pay for health care for illegals. Unfortunately, this is a smoke screen because literally BILLIONS of our tax dollars go to fund medical care for illegals anyway.

Forbes magazine’s Chris Conover recent ran the numbers and came up with at least $18.5 billon of our tax dollars wasted on health care for illegals.

How the Fair Tax would reduce current tax evasion

Share

POLITICS | BY JADE WALLE/Spero News

Working at a Big Four public accounting firm, we learn that auditing standards deal with the term “fraud” extensively. Intentional income tax evasion is a form of fraud. In the world of accounting and auditing, we learn that fraud exists when three items are present:

a) Incentives or pressures,

b) Rationalization or justification and

c) Opportunity.
