The Best Budget Since Reagan

 

I was honored to work in the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan. I’ve been waiting for 30 years to say this, but finally we have a federal budget proposal that would make the Gipper proud. This is the best budget since Reagan undoubtedly. One way to know that’s true is to […]

A Tax Cut Will Boost Jobs and Growth: Is That Too Hard to Understand?

 

A recent front page story in the Wall Street Journal opines that 3 percent economic growth isn’t achievable. It argues that 2 to 2.5 percent growth is the best we can do because of low labor force and productivity growth. Who says America can’t grow faster? The long-term growth path for the U.S. economy from […]

Trump Brings Back Half of Lost Mining Jobs — Already!

 

What a difference an election makes. Remember when liberals said there was NO WAY Donald Trump could or would ever revive the coal industry? He was called a liar and a charlatan for going to West Virginia and Pennsylvania and other parts of economically depressed Appalachia promising that he would bring back coal jobs. “Coal is dead,” […]

Coal’s Colossal Comeback

 

Buried in an otherwise humdrum jobs report for March was the jaw-dropping pronouncement by the Labor Department that mining jobs in America were up by 11,000 in March. Since the low point in October 2016 and following years of painful layoffs in the mining industry, the mining sector has added 35,000 jobs. What a turnaround. […]

Government Makes the Poor Poorer

 

For all the obsession in Washington and in college faculty lounges over income inequality, why isn’t there more outrage over government policies that exacerbate the problem? There are hundreds of programs that make the poor poorer and increase poverty in America. Many of them were exposed last week by my colleagues at the Heritage Foundation […]

A Budget to Shout About

 

What hypocrites liberals and the media are. For weeks on end they’ve been beating up Trump for not taking the initiative on the $10 trillion debt build-up under Barrack Obama or the runaway entitlement programs that could bankrupt our nation. Now that Trump has unveiled a budget that does both of those things, they are […]

The Growth Doves: Saying No Instead of Yes to 4 Percent Growth

 

Growth Doves. That’s what I call the liberal economists and political commentators who say that the U.S. can’t achieve 4% growth. It’s a ridiculous claim — disproved by history — but they are clinging to it. The reason is obvious. THEY couldn’t get to anywhere near 4% growth with their Keynesian nonsense so they think […]

High Tax, Big Spending States Are Out of Money

 

Governors and state legislators say they are running out of money again, and many are demanding tax hikes to close budget gaps. Here we go again. The cycle in state capitals from Albany to Sacramento is always the same: spend when times are good, tax when times are bad, and repeat. More than half the […]

What I Learned at the Women’s March

 

By sheer coincidence, I found myself on the Washington Mall on Saturday morning and so came face to face with the thousands of marchers protesting Donald Trump’s election. As far as I could see, these were solemn and peaceful rallies. The women expressed heartfelt fear and opposition to the Trump policies. Just 24 hours earlier […]

Conservatives Must Rally Behind Scott Pruitt for EPA

 

Environmental groups have declared war against Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, Donald Trump’s nominee to head the Environmental Protection Agency. Don’t be surprised if Mr. Pruitt’s nomination hearing this week degenerates into a three-ring circus of obnoxious and disruptive Big Green antics, the new M.O. of the left these days. Pruitt’s nomination and the case brought […]
