JFK Would Be a Republican – Trump Winning
JFK, Democratic icon, was far too conservative for today’s liberals
Today’s Democrats might find it surprising that JFK was a supply-sider. He was partly elected due to slow growth under Dwight Eisenhower. In the 1950s, the United States had a 91 percent top income tax rate. In a speech to Congress in January 1963, he said the high tax burden was an “unrealistically heavy drag…on private purchasing power, initiative, and incentive.” He knew the best way for the government to raise growth was to get it out of the way and let the private sector do what it does best.
You Can See America’s Future Under Socialism, And It Isn’t Pretty
Socialism: If there was one idea that you could say dominates today’s Democratic Party, it could be summed up in one word: Socialism. Many Democrats, from Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders to Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, embrace some form of socialism, soft or hard.
But what, you might ask, would America look like under socialism? Now there’s an answer, and it isn’t pretty.
Democrats’ New Fixation
Taking the Democrats’ new fixation with socialist ideas seriously and coinciding with the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx’s birth, the president’s Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) decided to apply conventional economic analysis to the U.S. economy under socialism. It won’t be the happiest place on Earth.
What to Know about the New California Sexual Harassment Training Regulations
California Sexual Harassment Training
Sexual harassment continues to become a more significant concern in the workplace, and data shows an increase in harassment reports in the past year as business owners and HR leaders have put new policies into place. As a step further, California lawmakers are fighting misconduct by enstating a new training policy for businesses with five or more employees. In previous years, only organizations with 50 or more employees were required to hold training seminars. However, new legislation recognizes the sexual harassment threat to companies of all sizes.
New York Governor Cuomo Blames Exodus of Wealthy on Trump
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo blamed his state’s revenue shortfall of $2.8 billion on Donald Trump during a press conference on Monday, stating,
There is no doubt that the budget we put forward [$175 billion for fiscal year 2019-20] is not supported by the revenues. It’s as serious as a heart attack….
SALT [which capped deductions for state income and local property taxes for the wealthy in Trump’s tax reform act] was an economic civil war. It literally restructured the economy to help red [Republican] states at the cost of blue [Democrat] states.
That’s exactly what it did. It was a diabolical, political maneuver.
Cuomo Contends Rich Are Fleeing New York Over SALT
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says changes to the federal tax code led to a growing state deficit and is causing some high-income earners to leave the state. But progressive groups, some Democratic state legislators, and even some millionaires, are pushing back against that assertion, saying there’s no hard evidence that any wealthy New Yorkers are leaving.
The governor met with President Trump on February 12 to try to convince him to change back the tax code, and he started a nationwide campaign to try to get the tax code overturned. He says the new limits to deductions for state and local taxes from federal income taxes, known as SALT, harms people in relatively high tax states like New York. Many wealthier New Yorkers will now have to pay more in taxes than under the old system.
Trump’s Wins Turn Democrats’ World Upside Down
Leadership: Within the past few days, never-Trumper David Brooks praised President Trump. “Saturday Night Live” admitted that he’d had a good week. Willie Brown told Democrats to “stop bashing” Trump. And party officials bemoaned the liberal media’s obsession with Trump scandals. It must seem to Democrats as if they woke up in Superman’s Bizarro World.
