‘My Creator gave me more than I deserved.’ Especially in a time filled with suffering and loss, it’s an inspiring message of both humility and gratitude that’s worth remembering.
The Congressional Budget Office projected the bill will raise federal deficits—and thus inflation—now and later. In fact, the bill will exacerbate inflation within mere months.
Ignore for a moment the fact that the bill contains ten years of tax increases to pay for a few years’ of spending that Democrats later hope to extend.
Without the Federal Reserve buying up Treasury notes, bond markets may have taken a very dim view of the left’s plans to create a European socialist state.
Ken Jennings returned for a second stint as guest host. In the episodes that aired last week, he appeared more willing to open up a bit.
The legislation contains almost as many gimmicks and budget tricks to hide its true costs as it does new entitlement programs.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is frog-marching her vulnerable members to a political suicide vote on a bill that’s likely dead on arrival in the Senate.
Democrats know they will have to come back to raise taxes on the middle class later, and want to prevent people from paying taxes on their retirement balances at today’s lower rates.
Whenever CBO finally releases a full score, it likely will show the reconciliation bill would exacerbate inflation by $1 trillion in the next few years.
Unfortunately for America’s schools, the latest news demonstrates that American kids’ education outcomes almost certainly will get worse.
Democrats will say nothing about President Joe Biden, who when not telling others to ‘pay their fair share’ dodged more than $500,000 in payroll taxes.
It’s no surprise that someone who went out of his way to avoid paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in Medicare taxes would agree to jeopardize the Medicare coverage of 27 million beneficiaries.
Imposing a carbon tax would represent but the latest instance of Democrats violating President Biden’s pledge not to raise taxes on the middle class.
Lawmakers are debating trillions of dollars in spending, and legislation that will affect many facets of just about every American’s life, without even bothering to hold any public hearing or discussion.
Contrary to their name, modern progressives view most Americans as regressive—fundamentally incapable of succeeding beyond a life on the dole.
The Biden administration insists the spending bill independent experts believe could cost $5.5 trillion over a decade will actually cost ‘zero.’ Is this how stupid they think Americans are?
Republicans caving on the debt ceiling paved the way for Democrats to focus the rest of the fall on their tax-and-spending spree.
Given the congresswoman’s tweet that taxing the rich more could help expand Medicare. what does she think of the Bidens’ failure to pay nearly $395,000 in Medicare taxes?
For all their talk about protecting seniors and Medicare, the progressive left views the program as a slush fund they can raid to pay for their big government scheme du jour.
A relatively unheralded program in the $3.5 trillion Democrat spending spree would provide well more than $1 billion in bailout funds to media organizations.
