Some Cutting Remarks on Taxes

Ed Fuelner, CNS News

True tax reform must combine the right cuts in tax rates with the right cuts in spending. Indeed, it’s the only way to put the federal budget on a sustainable path. Focusing only on one side of the budget ledger would be a major mistake.

The Trump Economy

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

Put simply, if the GOP whiffs on the tax cut, it will harm the economy and the stock market. It will put in dire jeopardy the Republican majorities in the midterm elections in 2018. So losing is not an option here. That is why Republican leaders would be wise to downsize their grand ambitions of a total rewrite of the tax code and simply sell the American people on a job creation tax cut that will benefit all American companies.

Introducing MAGAnomics

Mick Mulvaney, Wall Street Journal

If we enact the president’s broad agenda—if MAGAnomics is allowed to work—we will have set the stage for the greatest revival of the American economy since the early 1980s. It will remind people—including those who have forgotten, or those who don’t want you to remember—what a great America means. That is driving everything we do.

Are Illinois and Puerto Rico Our Future?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Deficits and national debts as a share of GDP are rising. Almost nowhere does one see the old robust growth rates returning. And the infrastructure of the West — roads, bridges, tunnels, ports, airports, subways, train tracks — continues to crumble for lack of investment. The days of interstate highway systems and moon shots seem to be behind us.

House Freedom Caucus To Ryan: Cancel August Recess

We agree with our friends in the Freedom Caucus; it’s time to go big on tax reform, and to do that Congress must work through the August recess to get a bill on the President’s desk.

Media Buries Trump’s Good Economic News

Obsessed as the establishment media is with fake news, you’d never know that – thanks in large measure to President Trump’s deregulation and economic policies – we are rapidly closing-in on the 4 percent economic growth target the President set during the campaign.

Trump Tax Cut Will Boost Jobs And Growth

Stephen Moore, Investor's Business Daily

In 1983, the economic growth rate during the first months of the Reagan tax cuts eclipsed 8%, and economists and politicians started yelping that the economy was churning so fast it was "overheating." That rapid return to prosperity helped the Gipper win a 49-state landslide the next year. Now we're being told that America can't grow at even a mediocre 3%? If liberals don't believe that Trump can succeed where Obama failed, there is an obvious way to find out. Get out of Trump's way and let's see if he can prove it.

All You Need Is Growth

Stephen Moore, Investor's Business Daily

If we can achieve 3.4% growth for the coming decade, then we lower the deficit by roughly $4.5 trillion over the decade. That is the best "pay for" I've ever heard. As JFK used to put it, we need a budget that is balanced through growth and prosperity. To paraphrase the Beatles: All you need is growth.

The President’s Gary Cohn Problem: The First Article In An Ongoing Series

When one sifts through all of the evidence and clues as to why the President’s economic and domestic policy agenda remain not only unfulfilled, but unarticulated, one problem keeps coming to the fore: The appointment of former Goldman Sachs President and Chief Operating Officer Gary Cohn to head the President’s National Economic Council.

What President Trump Doesn’t Get About the Freedom Caucus

What President Trump doesn’t seem to understand is that when establishment Republicans talk about “governing” and “legislating” what they really mean is growing government at a slightly slower pace or to benefit a different set of cronies than the Democrats would if they were in power.

CHQ Receives White House Briefing

My overall impression after the meeting was that the White House is very engaged and committed to pushing the President’s government reform and spending priorities. Whether the President pushes his priorities through a tweet storm or by turning on his legendary sales skills remains to be seen, but this isn’t the kind of "show vote" government that we are used to from Capitol Hill Republicans, this is real.

New Role For Conservatives: Operate As A Fourth Force

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
On tax reform, economic growth, reducing the size and scope of government and many other areas President Trump has indicated he wants to pass a bold conservative agenda. Let’s make it our job to be the “fourth force” that pushes him to the right and convinces him that to pass that agenda he must explicitly and actively move right and align himself with conservatives.

Obama: The Arrogance of Failure

President Obama is the most unaccomplished man to ever hold the office and has been given an eight-year free pass and never held to account for his failures; while Donald J. Trump hasn't even been sworn in and is already a human pinata for the snowflake right and the radical left.

The Trump Transition Is Transcendent, but the Economy Needs Attention Now

Larry Kudlow, National Review

Replacing Obamacare is hugely important, both to improve our health-care system and remove the economic drag of its taxing, spending, and regulating. But business tax reform — with low marginal corporate rates for large and small companies, easy repatriation, and immediate expensing for new investment — will have an enormously positive impact on the weakest part of our economy, namely business investment.

With some policy corrections, the economy can become prosperous again

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

So, no Mr. Trump isn’t inheriting a wonderful economy from Mr. Obama. It’s a financial house of cards built on years of debt and cheap money. Americans get that and this is why they voted for a change of leadership. Which brings me to the real reason for holiday cheer: with some swift policy course corrections — on taxes, regulation, health care, and energy — the economy can become genuinely prosperous again in a hurry.

How Trump Will Double Growth and Jobs

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

Mr. Trump would bring an America-first, pro-business approach to economic policy. Having someone in the White House who knows how to run a business and meet a payroll has to be a psychological lift for this battered and bruised economy. The Democrats and their gang of pundits assure us that 4 percent growth cannot and will not happen under President Trump. But let’s not forget these are the same geniuses who have assured us for the last year there never would be a President Trump. Wrong again.

How the Establishment Plans to Torch Trump’s Economic Plan: Part 1

After eight years of doing everything possible to prop-up Obama’s failed economic policies the Fed has now gotten religion and decided to implement a policy to keep employment growth neutral and slow wage growth at a time when working Americans haven’t had a real pay increase in a decade.

Why Would Anyone In Michigan Vote For Hillary Clinton?

In a state hard-hit by unemployment caused by globalization importing thousands of unemployable or low-skilled “refugees” makes no sense to voters, who are looking for someone to champion their economic and cultural interests. Hillary Clinton has clearly put herself on the other side of that battle and that is a major reason why Donald Trump is surging in Michigan.

A Vote for Trump Is a Vote for Growth

Wilbur Ross and Peter Navarro, Wall Street Journal

Analysts and journalists are doing voters a tremendous disservice by not analyzing the complete Clinton and Trump economic plans. It should be obvious to any reasonable observer that the integrative and synergistic Trump plan offers this country a very bright future. The Clinton plan merely saddles us with more of the dim past we have suffered under Obamanomics. It’s a very clear choice on Nov. 8.

Hillary Clinton’s America: More Debt, More Regulation and Leftist Courts

Our economy has not seen a single year of growth above 3 percent while President Barack Obama has been in office. The reasons why our economy is still struggling are because our already government taxes and spends far too much, and in Clinton’s America, we can expect more of the same.
