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.

Politicizing even the sports pages? Give us a break!

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore There’s a famous Woody Allen joke: “Those who can’t do teach, and those who can’t teach teach gym.” Well, here’s a modernized version of that old saw: Those who can’t do write, and those who can’t write write about sports. One of the most amazing revelations about the shameful […]

The death tax punishes only self-made small business-owners

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore My father built a small business from scratch with years of sweat equity and many weeks and months away from home.

Advice to Republicans on Trump’s tax cut: ‘Show [voters] the money’

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore Donald Trump’s latest tax-cut plan would be a steroid injection for the U.S. economy. Bravo to the White House and congressional leaders for packaging the biggest pro-growth tax cut since Ronald Reagan. My only quibble is that I wish the “Gang of Six” negotiators had stuck with President Trump’s […]

Yes, Jimmy Kimmel, the states can fix the Obamacare debacle

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore Back in 1996, a Republican Congress and a Democratic president (Bill Clinton) enacted one of the most historic bipartisan policy victories in modern times: the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act for welfare reform. The passage of that bill has so many parallels to the fight over the […]

America’s antiquated air traffic control system makes sense only for private jet owners

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore Liberals love to portray Republicans as the party of the rich and powerful.

Bad news (no news) for the Left: The Trump boom is here

Special to WorldTribune.com By Stephen Moore Has anyone noticed — through the fog of Russia, James Comey, Charlottesville and now two monster hurricanes — that the U.S. economy is booming faster than it has since the late Clinton years? It is undeniable. In the last year of the Obama administration, the economy was decelerating, with […]
