Taxes Ahead

Almost right on queue, the liberals are coming out of the woodwork—the “pest” reference is deliberate—to announce that it’s time for you and I to step up to the plate and hand over more of our money. Joining a growing movement, an opinion piece by the Denver Post Editorial Board details how the recent bout of dropping fuel prices presents the perfect opportunity to raise gas tax rates in order to help the country’s neglected highway systems. They give the following reasons: Most forecasters, including the federal government, say that lower gas prices are likely to continue. And as we all know, when the government…

TEA Party vs IRS

In his final act as Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee—he’s stepping down because of term limits—Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) released a report on Tuesday saying that IRS officials were swayed by Democrats calling for stronger regulations on nonprofit groups that had become more involved in politics. TEA Party Patriots, one of the organizations targeted in the IRS scandal, had this to say about it: “There is no question that the IRS as an agency, and its leaders individually, directed and implemented a scheme to silence and demoralize TEA Party groups,” said Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Atlanta-based group.…

Mitch McConnell Enshrined In The G.O.P. Hall Of Shame

As 2012 wound to a close, the lame duck Congress was faced with coming up with a solution to the self-inflicted financial crisis known as the “fiscal cliff.“ Self-inflicted because it was created by the same gutless politicians during the debt ceiling negotiations in 2011 who were now wringing their hands in search of a solution. One of the gutless politicians involved in those 2011 negotiations was Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell—a position McConnell must really enjoy since Republicans have remained the minority party since he was elected party leader in 2007. Unfortunately for American taxpayers, his gutlessness continued when he abandoned his No New Taxes promise after negotiating with Vice…

American Oil: Shrink The Trade Deficit And Boost The Declining Dollar – Without New Taxes

With gas prices continuing to climb, there is an ever-increasing quest for ways to find a culprit that can carry the blame. More and more, the finger pointing is focused on the overseas sale of US petroleum product—with the belief being that selling American resources to the highest bidder increases the price of gasoline at the pump. This idea has made strange bedfellows of Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and Congressman Ed Markey (D-MA). Addressing gas prices, O’Reilly claims: “They are much higher because the oil companies are shipping their products overseas.” Representative Markey (of the Waxman-Markey cap and trade…

This Is Budget Leadership?

This Is Budget Leadership?

The main reason that Obama is lacking when it comes to budget leadership is that he has never had to deal with one, and thanks to the rudderless ship – or should I say, Reid-erless – being captained by Harry Reid, he likely never will. I know Dirty Harry thinks the Constitution gives him the right to spend federal money, but doesn’t he also realize that the Constitution requires Congress to draft a budget to guide them in that spending? Actually, that’s a rhetorical question. From Obamacare to unconstitutional appointments, Reid has demonstrated an understanding of the Constitution, he just chooses to ignore…
