Politics before country: What is wrong with people?

Politics before country: What is wrong with people?

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore The unseemly sight of nearly the entire Democratic congressional delegation sitting on their hands and clinging to their chairs throughout Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech is further evidence that they want America to fail on Trump’s watch. Hundreds of American companies are bringing jobs to America and […]

Not happy yet? Make Trump tax cuts permanent — now

Not happy yet? Make Trump tax cuts permanent — now

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore We’re just one month into the new tax bill, and only those wearing left-wing ideological blinders — which, unfortunately, is still the case for millions of anti-Trumpers — can deny that Donald Trump’s tax cuts are helping just about everyone. The avalanche of news stories of bonuses, pay raises, […]

On the record: Prophets of economic doom got it wrong; Trump knew his business

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore Since the day Donald Trump was elected president in November 2016, the Dow Jones industrial average has risen by some 35 percent, making the last 14 months one of the greatest bull market runs in history.

Thanks to Arthur Laffer, the economy is in for one ‘helluva ride’

Thanks to Arthur Laffer, the economy is in for one ‘helluva ride’

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore The unsung hero of the GOP Christmas gift of a tax cut is Arthur Laffer — the Reagan economist who helped devise the Gipper’s tax reductions. Those tax cuts rebuilt the U.S. economy in the 1980s and pulled us out of the mini-depression of high inflation and unemployment in […]

What John F. Kennedy and Donald Trump have in common

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore Last week during an address at the White House, President Donald Trump likened his tax plan to the tax cut that John F. Kennedy proposed 55 years ago.

Get going, Congress, and here’s four ways the tax bill could be improved

Get going, Congress, and here’s four ways the tax bill could be improved

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore The Senate-passed tax bill is a policy triumph that will provide a shot of performance-enhancing drugs to the veins of the economy. It’s not perfect, but with the combined effect of cutting business tax rates, eliminating the state and local tax deduction and repealing the Obamacare individual mandate tax, […]

Trump tax cut is good news for all who actually pay federal income taxes except rich in blue states

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore Whenever I’m asked if the Trump tax cut is for the rich, I say yes. It is a tax cut for the rich. It is a tax cut for the middle class. It is a tax cut for small businesses. It is a tax cut for the Fortune 100. […]

The Stupid Party finally gets smart

The Stupid Party finally gets smart

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore Republicans have long been known as “the stupid party.” They do stupid things, such as waiting until mid-November to push a must-pass tax cut that should have been done by April. But in recent weeks the GOP is finally showing some brains and some backbone on taxes. They are […]

Wrong and wronger: The NY Times and Time magazine on the Trump boom

Wrong and wronger: The NY Times and Time magazine on the Trump boom

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore Time magazine’s cover story for the week of Nov. 6 is a classic. It blares: “The Wrecking Crew: How Trump’s Cabinet Is Dismantling Government As We Know It.” The New York Times ran a lead editorial complaining that team Trump is shrinking the regulatory state at an “unprecedented” pace.

The $18 billion George Soros secret, and the top five evils of the IRS tax code

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore President Donald Trump has proposed what he calls “the biggest tax cut since Ronald Reagan.” He also wants vast simplification so that Americans can fill out their taxes on a postcard return. Let’s hope that part of this reform package will be to defang the IRS, which treats Americans […]
