With A Budget Like This,
Can Tax Hikes Be Far Behind?

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:RockyTCB, 2/13/2018 8:03:06 AM

Fiscal Policy: Unlike in previous years, when the president´s budget was declared dead on arrival as soon as it was released, President Trump´s budget was dead before it arrived, killed by a spendthrift Congress. Nevertheless, the budget does serve a purpose, if only to show how Republicans are paving the way for massive tax hikes down the road. News reports naturally are focusing on the "cuts" in Trump´s budget. But even if Congress hadn´t already upped the spending ante, Trump´s budget is hardly a testament to fiscal austerity. His budget has federal spending climbing by 5.8% this year, and 4.6% in 2019.

All the democrats, news organizations, celebrities and other liberal folks, who were against President Trump´s tax cuts, should pay all the taxes they wanted him to implement. Let´s see them put their money where their mouth is! They are free to pay any amount they want to the treasury...

I am amazed that Trump approved of this ´bipartisan´ monstrosity of a budget. Yes, I know the Trump cheer leaders will blindly cheer this, but for 1 do not. Where are the cuts in federal programs and dupliscious agencies? Where? What? Do you think that the so called repuke leaders will EVER suggest such real world solutions? You know, the democrats (who are in the majority) with an R afer their names? The cuts should have accompannied this nightmare. What? 3D chess? You mean with blinders on? Oh yeah, rah, rah, rah .. thats the school spirit. Unbelievable.

Obama spent more on the implementation & advertising of Obamacare than this budget.

Why do writers of these type articles assume that increased taxes are the only way to reduce the deficit?

How about cutting the spending? That is what Mom and Pop America have to do. Spending cuts flow directly to the bottom line.

One does not have to be a CPA to figure that out ...

I´m a Trumpster but I´m very disappointed by this. Particularly the infrastructure part.

He might as well have said ´it´s for the children´, as no one can ever see what the tax money has bought.

Democrats´ Turn To Socialism

Big Left Turn: Are socialists becoming the new Democratic Party mainstream? After candidates endorsed by the socialist party won nomination battles for state legislative seats in Pennsylvania and far-left progressives triumphed over moderates elsewhere, the answer seems to be yes. Four — count ´em, four — candidates backed by the Democratic Socialists of America won spots on the ballot during this week´s primary elections in the Keystone State. Two of them won´t even be opposed by a Republican in the general election. Some are writing it off as a fluke, a local aberration, but it isn´t. Increasingly, the national Democratic Party is

Laurence Tribe Was Against
Impeachment Before He Was For It

Politics: Before President Trump even took the oath of office, constitutional law scholar Laurence Tribe was calling for his impeachment. Tribe hasn´t stopped since. But 20 years ago, Tribe was singing a different tune about impeachment when a lawbreaking Democrat was in the White House. In early December, less than a month after Trump won the election, Tribe tweeted that impeachment should begin "on Inauguration Day." Eight days after Inauguration Day, Tribe declared that Trump was already guilty of "shredding the Constitution more monstrously than any other President in American history." He´s since claimed Trump should be impeached and removed from office for

GDP Fraud: Countries ruled by an authoritarian regime often cheat on their official GDP data, a new study shows. No surprise, really. But how do we know this? Well, it´s all about the light. What do we mean? A new working paper by Luis R. Martinez of the University of Chicago with the amusing title "How Much Should We Trust the Dictator´s GDP Estimates?" explores the unusual, but direct, link between the amount of light produced by an economy — as captured and measured through nighttime satellite photographs — and its GDP. The surprising result: Martinez concludes that economies in

Seattle Makes Amazon, Starbucks

Free Markets: Big businesses in Seattle face a substantial new tax to build more affordable housing. This is after the city thwarted private developers who were building affordable housing on their own dime. Only to government officials could this make any sense. This week, the city council unanimously passed a "head tax" of $275 per full-time worker on any company in the city that makes more than $20 million in gross revenues. The city says the $48 million in new taxes will go toward affordable housing and providing emergency services for the city´s swelling homeless population. Major employers like Amazon.com

Media Bias: How Media

Misreporting Gaza ´Protesters´ Violence

Bias: You might think that national news outlets would be extra careful not to sensationalize or distort what´s happening in Gaza and the West Bank in response to the U.S. moving its embassy to Jerusalem, Israel´s capital. But if you did, you would be incredibly naive. The mainstream media went out of their way to portray the U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem as an incitement to violence by Palestinian "demonstrators." Headlines often give away the underlying bias. Typical was one from the New York Times: "Israel Kills Dozens at Gaza Border as U.S. Embassy Opens in Jerusalem." Get the linkage? It's all our fault — and the

Trump Keeps Big Promise To Israel —
Next Up, Peace In Mideast?

Embassy Move: With the opening Monday of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, President Trump didn´t just keep a promise to Israel. Despite violent Palestinian protests, Trump´s move may well reboot peace talks. Trump´s decision to relocate the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem does more than merely restate Trump´s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel´s capital; it is an emphatic declaration of Israel´s permanency and its right to exist. Given that many nations around the world don´t recognize Israel´s right to exist — or, if they do, recognize it only within shrunken borders that would be almost impossible to defend — Trump

Trump´s Wins Turn
Democrats´ World Upside Down

Leadership: Within the past few days, never-Trumper David Brooks praised President Trump. "Saturday Night Live" admitted that he´d had a good week. Willie Brown told Democrats to "stop bashing" Trump. And party officials bemoaned the liberal media´s obsession with Trump scandals. It must seem to Democrats as if they woke up in Superman´s Bizarro World. On PBS this weekend, David Brooks — who in March 2016 penned a column for The New York Times titled "No, Not Trump, Not Ever" that claimed Trump was "epically unprepared to be president" and "an affront to basic standards of honesty, virtue and citizenship" —

Former Director of Intelligence James Clapper said Thursday night on CNN that it was “a good thing” there was an FBI informant spying on the Trump campaign. Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say, “So,

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

The civil war between the Fox News Channel news and opinion sides appears to be hardening with chief political anchor Bret Baier having joined the fray. On Thursday May 17, Baier, a 20-year high-profile veteran of Fox News, entered the lion’s den – one of the hearts of the anti-Trump Resistance – when he went on the ABC Television Network daytime women’s chat show The View. His guest shot in “enemy territory” was a prominent stop on the media tour to promote his new book on Reagan and Gorbachev, Three Days in Moscow. The five women of The View, however – four of them unabashed leftists and one lone

The man who is sixth in line to be king of Great Britain is getting married today and America has lost its mind. What does it mean to be sixth in the line of royal succession to an office that depends solely and exclusively on who your father is? It means that five family members have to die before you get the real goodies. Granted, those goodies are amazing. Who wouldn´t want to live in a thousand year old castle (too bad it´s in Scotland) or have dozens of "servants" cater to your every whim and need? But that lifestyle depends on people believing that you are deserving of such wealth and privilege because you happened to be

Boston — Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked. More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard´s first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school´s traditional graduation events. (Snip) Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university´s graduation. Students have raised $35,000 for the event, mostly from schools within the university.

John McCain´s Last Fight

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly
