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.

Media, Dems Can´t Find Dirt On
Kavanaugh — So Instead They Throw Mud

Supreme Court: Now the long, hard slog of getting a Supreme Court nominee onto the bench begins. As always, Democrats, the FBI and the media have launched into an intense investigation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh´s background. And, so far, there´s not much grist for the old Washington, D.C. scandal mill. But it´s not for a lack of trying. We´ve found out that Kavanaugh, despite his extraordinary legal mind, is kind of a regular guy. He loves baseball. He volunteers to feed the homeless at his church. He uses his credit card too much at times. Everyone who knows him thinks he´s

Income Tax Revenues Are Up 9% This
Year — Is Trump Tax Cut Paying For Itself?
Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff    Original Article

Supply-Side Economics: Democrats scoffed at Republicans who said the Trump tax cuts would at least partially pay for themselves through higher economic growth. But it looks like the GOP had it right all along, as revenues climb. The latest monthly budget report from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office finds that revenues from federal income taxes were $76 billion higher in the first half of this year, compared with the first half of 2017. That´s a 9% jump, even though the lower income tax withholding schedules went into effect in February. The CBO says the gain "largely reflects increases in wages and salaries." For

Global Warming: Once more, science provides bad news for global warming alarmists. U.S. CO2 levels again declined during 2017, despite overall global output again rising. Credit U.S. fracking and the natural gas boom. But don´t worry: the hysteria won´t end. The new report, based on U.S. data, shows clearly the U.S. continuing downward trend. "The U.S. emitted 15.6 metric tons of CO2 per person in 1950," wrote the Daily Caller. "After rising for decades, it´s declined in recent years to 15.8 metric tons per person in 2017, the lowest measured levels in 67 years." That´s right. 67 years. Green groups and leftist climate

Accountability: Even before President Trump announced his pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court, predictions of doom and gloom were rampant. They´ll only get more dire as Brett Kavanaugh´s nomination battle proceeds. Will anyone hold these people accountable for their unfounded, irresponsible, uninformed scaremongering claims? As a public service, we´ve been collecting some of the more fantastical forecasts about the hellscape that Judge Kavanaugh will unleash on the country should he make it to the Supreme Court. Unfortunately, political leaders and the media can get away with such outlandish claims because nobody bothers to follow up. They just

NATO: For Eurocrats, there never seems to be any downside to insulting President Trump, a man the EU´s suave socialists love to hate. It has been on display as Trump prepares to meet with his fellow NATO members during his trip to Europe. Typical was the snarky, disrespectful reception for Trump prepared by European Council President Donald Tusk, on the eve of the much-awaited NATO meeting: "First of all, dear America, appreciate your allies, after all you don´t have that many." Tusk went on, talking about how Trump was "criticizing Europe almost daily for, in his view, insufficient contributions to

Judiciary: In federal Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump has found yet another solid constitutional conservative for an empty seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. Contrary to the shrieking protests heard outside the Supreme Court building on Monday night, the 53-year-old Kavanaugh will be a genuine protector of Americans´ rights — just as Justice Neil Gorsuch, whom Trump placed on the court last year, is. [ibd-display-video id=3384657 width=50 float=left autostart=true] Kavanaugh, like Gorsuch, is an originalist. That´s not something anyone — left, right or center, Democrat, Independent or Republican — should fear.

Dispatches From The ´Tolerant´
Left´s War On Trump Supporters

Angry Opposition: Every day brings new examples of the supposedly open-minded, inclusive, tolerant, peace-loving left threatening or attacking Trump administration officials or Trump supporters. Hatred and intolerance has been standard operating procedure on the extreme left. But thanks to enablers among Democrats and the press, it´s quickly becoming dangerously "mainstream." Here are some of the ways in just the past few days that the left has expressed its tolerance for those it disagrees with: On Friday, Martin Astrof went to the campaign headquarters of Rep. Lee Zeldin, and then threatened to kill Zeldin and Trump supporters generally, according to news accounts of

´Inclusive´ Boom: It may be a surprise, but President Trump is nowhere near as unpopular among minority voters as the biased mainstream media suggest. Why is that? In a word, jobs. Trump, it turns out, has been the most consequential president in history when it comes to minority employment. In June, for instance, the unemployment rate for Hispanics and Latinos 16 years and older fell to 4.6%, its lowest level ever, from 4.9% in May. The previous all-time low was 4.8%. African-American unemployment bounced up from its all-time low of 5.9% in May to 6.5% in June. But that 6.5% still represents

Subsidies: According to the federal government, almost 1.4 billion pounds of surplus cheese now sit in refrigerated warehouses around the country. Yet dairy production is climbing. What gives? The amount of surplus cheese is growing fast — up 6% in just the past year. According to news accounts, the reason is that dairy production is climbing, while dairy consumption is falling. Data from the Department of Agriculture show that between 2008 and 2017, milk production in the U.S. climbed 13%. Over those same years, however, consumption has sagged — with per capita milk consumption down 14%, USDA data show. The surplus milk gets stored

You have to love President Donald Trump. As a businessman he was ruthless in squeezing every last dollar from every opportunity. To lower costs he produced his goods in at least 12 foreign countries, including China, Indonesia, and Mexico. Anything to make a buck. So it must be karma. The president launched a trade war, which basically means shooting one´s own consumers and producers. Among those hurt is the iconic U.S. motorcycle producer Harley-Davidson. The Trump tariffs are hurting the firm´s bottom line. The latest estimate is that aluminum and steel levies will raise Harley-Davidson´s costs by about $20 million this year,

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts once wrote that the "way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race." He wrote those words in a 2007 opinion that turned back Seattle´s race-based efforts to implement affirmative action-type policies to its local school district. While that case garnered a race-neutral result, his broader message seems to have fallen on deaf ears. In America, race-based policies are expanding not contracting. Rather than reaching down to lower-level schools, affirmative action policies are now exponentially expanding into corporate America.

Blue-Model Fail: By any standard, San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. So why has it suddenly become an unappealing place to visit and to live? As with so many U.S. cities, it suffers a host of urban maladies. Blame the far-left Blue Model of urban governance, which now afflicts most major American cities. Yes, the city by the bay is extraordinarily beautiful. But that´s a result of geography and the city´s distant past, not of its current political class, which is about as far-left on the urban political spectrum as any city in America. Many were

Hillary Clinton had strong words for the Trump administration and Republicans on Friday while addressing the American Federation of Teachers, saying the fundamental rights of Americans are what’s at stake this November. Speaking at the labor union’s conference in Pittsburgh, Mrs. Clinton slammed the administration’s separations of families at the border as inhumane and indecent. “I believe with all my heart that the test of any society is how we treat the most vulnerable among us, particularly our youngest, our oldest, our people with disabilities, and right now, my friends, our country is failing that test,” she said. “We have

Fox News host Dana Perino on Thursday night called for congressional hearings to be taken off-camera following a wild hearing with FBI agent Peter Strzok earlier in the day. Perino slammed Democrats for an "outrageous" suggestion Strzok deserved a Purple Heart and scolded Republicans for "overboard" questions that "felt like a public lynching" during Strzok´s testimony to the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform committees. The comments from the former George W. Bush press secretary came after Strzok´s testimony dominated headlines and broadcast news on Thursday.

Strzok was asked “what action” he would take if he found out one of his subordinates was conducting an “extramarital affair.” “It depends,” said Strzok. “If it was against the FBI’s regulation in terms of if it was somebody in their chain of command, above or below them, which is inappropriate or not allowed by regulation, I would

The indictment Friday of 12 Russian military officers for the election hacks against the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign lends a surprising new detail to the 2016 election interference timeline: The Kremlin’s hackers apparently still maintained a foothold in the DNC’s network four months after the Democrats announced that they’d locked the intruders out. Until today, the story of the DNC hack ended promptly on June 14, 2016, when the Democrats went public with the intrusion in the pages of the Washington Post, and Crowdstrike, the security firm hired to respond to the breach, published a detailed technical account. Today’s indictment confirms

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is. Trucks dump the material on a long conveyor belt, where a few dozen people pick through by hand what is supposed to be recyclable material, but more and more often is just plain old dirty trash. The recyclables used to be worth something more than bragging rights about liberal moral superiority. Plastic bottles, newspapers, and cardboard, were just a few of the favorites you could ship to China by the ton and make a few bucks along the

Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation. Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement. Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated. Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world. It´s not news that illegals work in restaurants as food-handlers. These restaurant workers migrate from

The left-wing terrorist organization that calls itself Antifa is “freaking out” over a proposed law that would enhance penalties for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a disguise or mask. Throughout our country, and for a number of years now — and primarily because the establishment media fantasizes about, promotes, enflames and approves of the violence committed against the right (naturally, HuffPo opposes the unmasking law) — Antifa has been allowed to run rampant, committing countless acts of violence against everyday, peaceful supporters of President Donald Trump.

Democrats hold a massive voter lead in states that require party registration, a gap of 12 million that could be key to whether the party takes control of the House and Senate in the fall midterm congressional elections, according to a new analysis. Overall, 40 percent of voters in 31 party registration states are Democrats, 29 percent are Republicans, and 28 percent are independents, according to a new report of July numbers from the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics. The states include several with key battles over House seats such as California, New York, Florida, and Pennsylvania.
