Bill Whittle thinks that President Obama is trying to deliberately hurt America through the questionable sequester budget cuts. Why would the President of the United States try to punish the nation he has sworn to protect?

Prager University: Do High Taxes Raise More Money? – YouTube.

Possibly the best short explanation of the Laffer Curve I’ve seen. Of course there is more to be discussed because this example focuses on the morally reprehensible “progressive” tax system wherein 47% of filers wither pay no income taxes or receive a cash bonus for filing. However, we’ll save that for another time.

Tim Groseclose, in addition to being a faculty member at Prager University, is a professor of political science and economics at UCLA. His article on this subject is here.

The Progressive Nightmare

The Conservative Solution

I just saw a protestor screamjng, “Hands off my Medicare1″. OK I quess we can chalk that up to failures in our education system. At least FDR hid the Social Security Fraud as a type of insurance product in which your “contribution” was used to fund your retirement. Until they had to tell the truth and admit before the Supreme Court that it was just another tax (Heverling v. Davis 1937) and did not convey rights to the taxpayer.

Medicare was never sold to the public that way. It was promoted as our obligation to the elderly and funded by a payroll tax. Thus it became a direct transfer from the working to the retired. I would suggest that Medicare taxes should be sequestered in a separate fund that funds only Medicare . If it runs low, adjust benefits or tax level. It will be highly inteesting to see how much the children of the “Baby Boomer” will be willing to pay for their parents.

Hey maybe we can get a bunch of illegal aliens paying into the system to balance it oyt. /sarc

Need another dose of Zo? Click on: http://www.pjtv.com/ “Obama has the nerve to talk to us about living within means.”

Let President Obama say, “We don’t need more studies; we don’t need a balanced budget amendment.” If ever any unfolding drama proved the need for such an amendment, the drama of the past week has been it. Leave cuts to Congress and what do you get? CBO-certified gimmicks on both sides — even on the side of one sincerely trying to garner savings, one who says he also “wanted more.”
