Why Did The IRS Audit Donald Trump, But Not Joe Biden?

Is Lois Lerner in charge of determining which politicians to audit at the IRS? That’s a relevant question from a recent Washington Post article looking into Joe Biden’s taxes. The Post received confirmation that the Internal Revenue Service declined to audit Biden’s returns from the years before he became president. But separate reporting confirmed that the IRS did audit Donald…

Joe Biden Wants To Have The IRS Harass Americans While Dodging It Himself

The White House fears that an impending Congressional Budget Office analysis will say Democrats’ spending bill would increase federal deficits. The dispute seems unsurprising, given the myriad budgetary gimmicks in the bill—but not for the reasons one might expect. Ignore for a moment the fact that the bill contains ten years of tax increases to pay for a few years’…

6 Ridiculous Budget Gimmicks In House Democrats’ ‘Build Back Bankrupt’ Spending Spree

At some point in the near future—whether a few days or a few weeks—the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) will release a complete score of the spending spree legislation Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, and House leaders introduced on Nov. 3. The document will represent the first complete CBO analysis of any of the multi-trillion-dollar spending bills that Democrats have spent the…

Every Policy Idea Democrats Come Up With Is Designed To Destroy America

The headlines this week from Democrats’ bumbling, stumbling budget negotiations have focused on their inability to get agreement on Joe Biden’s massive cradle-to-grave reformation of the relationship between the individual and the state. Democrats claim these trillion-dollar proposals are free – they’re “taxing the rich” to pay for them. But are they? It’s worth taking a look at who Democrats…

Will Joe Biden Cancel His Fellow Seniors’ Medicare Plans?

Twelve months after Joe Biden claimed at the final presidential debate that “not one single person, private insurance, would lose their insurance under my [health] plan,” Democrats stand on the precipice of turning Biden’s statement into a reprise of Barack Obama’s “If you like your plan, you can keep it” Lie of The Year. The effort could cost millions of…

Democrats’ $3.5T Spending Bill Is Even More Crooked Than Obamacare

How quickly Democrats forget. A dozen years ago,  President Barack Obama faced strong and justified criticism for backtracking on his promise, made numerous times during the 2008 presidential campaign, to televise health-care negotiations on C-SPAN: [embedded content] By this year’s standards, however, the process that led to Obamacare—the law that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, said we had to pass…

Only An Idiot Would Believe Congress’s Spending Spree Will Cost ‘Zero’

In recent weeks, the Biden administration has begun asserting that the spending bill independent experts believe could cost $5.5 trillion over a decade will actually cost “zero.” Putting aside the way these patronizing assertions insult voters’ intelligence, does the kernel of the Biden claim—that the Democratic reconciliation proposals will be fully paid-for—stand up to scrutiny? In a word, hardly. Multiple…

If AOC Wants To ‘Tax The Rich,’ Why Not Start With Joe Biden?

During her time in Congress, does Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York, want to serve as a workhorse or a show horse? That conundrum lies at the heart of a series of questions I posed to her office last week regarding the tax code. The congresswoman famously (or infamously, depending on one’s point of view) wore a dress emblazoned with the…

Biden Promised He Wouldn’t Increase Taxes On Small Businesses. Well, He’s About To

In releasing the framework for their $3.5 trillion spending bill, Democrats claimed their legislation would include language to “prohibit tax increases on…small businesses.” But the budget Democrats passed includes no such prohibition, and it’s not difficult to understand why. President Biden—who has used questionable tactics to reduce his family’s tax bills by nearly $517,000 over the past four years—has proposed…

Politico Published 20 Stories About Trump’s Taxes And Only 1 About Joe Biden’s

Last week, the Medicare trustees finally released their long-delayed annual report into that program’s finances. It confirmed the program remains on shaky fiscal footing, concluding the Medicare trust fund that pays for hospital inpatient expenses will become insolvent in 2026, just five short years from now. President Joe Biden helped contribute to the deterioration in Medicare’s finances. By using a…

Our $28 Trillion National Debt Is Coming Due

Last September, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) predicted the federal debt wouldn’t hit $29 trillion until 2028. Just short of a year later, the national debt stands at $28.6 trillion and is set to surpass $29 trillion within weeks. Since Congress hasn’t yet enacted all its new spending proposals, the CBO debt estimates don’t yet include them. The $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” bill still has…

Why You Should Blame The Federal Reserve’s Easy Money For Today’s Inflation

Some observers, reading news about the latest report on runaway inflation, might blame the Biden administration’s free-spending policies for devaluing the dollar. But that simplistic assumption both ignores other sources and understates the problems. Much of the responsibility—and the blame—lies within the Marriner Eccles Building in Washington, home of the Federal Reserve. As a new PBS “Frontline” documentary explores, the…

Why Congress Should Demand An Audit Of Biden’s Taxes

A bipartisan Senate working group has proposed paying for new infrastructure spending in part by providing $40 billion to the Internal Revenue Service. But before Congress even considers the legislation, conservatives rightly skeptical of doling out new funds and authority to the IRS should pose one simple request to the Biden administration: You want to audit other “rich” people? Why…

Biden’s Plan To Raid Medicare Shows His Callous Disregard For Math And Voters

The budget President Biden recently submitted to Congress resembles President Obama’s fiscal blueprints in many respects. It taxes too much, spends too much, and with $14.5 trillion in new federal debt, it certainly borrows too much. But Biden’s budget reflects his Democrat predecessor in another aspect: It uses hundreds of billions of dollars from Medicare to pay for (among many…

Texas Bill To Ban Taxpayer-Funded Lobbying Faces Fierce Fight
