What Congress is doing, as it always does, is attempting to throw money at the problems that we and state and local legislatures have created.
Every stimulus grabs control from shoppers and hands control to government people. You will pay again later by getting less for the lower-value dollars as Social Security checks.
The Democrat proposal would give an average tax cut of $33,000 to the top 1 percent of income earners, says a Brookings Institution estimate.
Lean, effective government, lower taxes, and pro-growth regulations will revive the U.S. economy far better than bailouts for mismanaged states.
Conservatives should demand more than the soft bigotry of low expectations that Republican lawmakers’ miserable track record on spending has led them to expect.
Pelosi’s caucus is looking to keep the special interest gravy train flowing, while chucking the average American another deficit-funded check like red meat to a dog they’re trying to get off their trail.
The budget crisis in New York that preceded the pandemic stems in large part from Washington’s overly generous match for wealthy states.
Shutdowns and bailouts are unsustainable for 18 months to two years. We need a new and better set of strategies, and we can’t put it off any further.
After getting an extra $13.5 billion in March’s ‘Phase 3’ stimulus bill, the education lobby is now asking Congress for another $175 billion as it ponders a Phase 4 bill.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is determined to exploit this crisis for political gain, on the well-founded calculation that if Democrats ask Republicans to unleash a horde of locusts, they’ll agree to half the locusts.
The real threat of government expansion is not lockdown, but the introduction of well-intentioned, but dangerously-designed emergency relief programs.
Politicians used the largest spending bill in U.S. history to force through a wide variety of earmarks and partisan boondoggles on the backs of future taxpayers.
House Republican leaders actively participated in Nancy Pelosi’s successful attempt to deny the American people a public vote on the $2 trillion legislation.
Unfortunately the largest spending package in American history is ample with corporate handouts, opening a potential minefield of corporate irresponsibility.
Republicans and Democrats finally stopped squabbling long enough to spend an estimated $2 trillion on what they claim is emergency coronavirus relief.
While it remains a favorite policy prescription for politicians eager to appear as salvific heroes in times of need, it is untenable as a serious idea to stimulate anything except our national debt.
Congressional leaders are likely to make a very ugly bailout deal, and if it passes, America may be unrecognizable after this pandemic.
Lawmakers always feel the need to ‘do something,’ seemingly irrespective of what that ‘something’ is. The current pandemic only exacerbates that dilemma.
Like the New Deal, every additional billion dollars in stimulus and bailout spending will further delay the economic recovery we all want and need.
The leaders of both parties made getting Congress out of town a bigger priority than giving lawmakers the time to do their due diligence.
