Taxing America First by Stephen Moore

Back in early 2016, when Larry Kudlow and I suggested that then-presidential candidate Donald Trump propose a 20% business tax rate for U.S. companies (down from the highest in the world rate of 35%), he enthusiastically endorsed this "America First" policy -- not because he loved corporate America but because he realized that as long as small and large American companies were paying the highest tax rates, jobs and factories would continue to move offshore.

The War Is on With China By Stephen Moore

With each passing week, it looks like World War III -- between America and China -- is coming sooner than we think. It's not going to be fought with bullets or aircraft carriers, although the Chinese are building up their military in an aggressive and threatening way.

Fossil Fuels Are Back -- Everywhere Except in the USA By Stephen Moore

While the greens in America, including their champion zealot, President Joe Biden, howl their primal screams over climate change, the rest of the world is turning to coal. The dark stuff. The satanic fuel. But it's back big-time across the globe.

Government of the Unions, by the Unions, for the Unions by Stephen Moore

President Joe Biden keeps boasting that all the new jobs his programs will supposedly create will be "good-paying union jobs." But, Joe, what about the 93% of private sector workers who are (SET ITAL)not(END ITAL) members of unions? Does he care about them?

Congress Is Back to Serving Pork by Stephen Moore

Pork is being served in Washington again. Big juicy slices to the lobbyists with the deepest wallets and the campaign contributors who write the biggest campaign reelection checks. It is the way of the swamp. It is the currency of the Washington Beltway. It explains how people get so rich in politics.

Americans Should Be Working Hard, Not Hardly Working by Stephen Moore

There Goes Grandma Over the Cliff by Stephen Moore

End the Real Estate Racket by Stephen Moore

The housing market is hot, hot, hot right now, and home prices continue to soar in many markets to their highest prices ever. Since it doesn't cost a real estate agent ten times as much to sell a million dollar home than a $100,000 home, one would expect that the percentage fees for real estate agents would be falling.

Taxpayers Are Getting Ripped Off and Congress Does Nothing by Stephen Moore

Milton Friedman used to quip that, in Washington, if a government program is working, Congress says we need to spend more money on it. And if a government program is failing, Congress concludes we are not spending enough money on it.

American Tech Sector Keeps Blowing Away the Rest of the World by Stephen Moore

Take a bow, America. It's official and irrefutable: The U.S. is blowing out the rest of the world in tech leadership. No other country in the world comes anywhere close in tech innovation and the dominance of our made-in-America 21st-century companies.

How the Left Has Used COVID-19 to Bankrupt the United States by Stephen Moore

I have never bought the conspiracy theories that COVID-19 was a diabolical political plot to undermine the country. But what is apparent with each passing week is that the virus has been the springboard for the left's agenda to transform America in a way that Sen. Bernie Sanders, Michael Moore or Rachel Maddow could have never imagined.

In Biden's America, Everyone is Entitled to Everything by Stephen Moore

OPEC and Big Oil's New Best Friend, Joe Biden By Stephen Moore

The price of oil surged to $75 a barrel the other day under President Joe Biden's green energy policies. The price was as low as $35 a barrel under former President Donald Trump because he believed in American energy dominance ("Drill, baby, drill"). So, more oil meant lower prices at the pump. It was effectively a massive, multibillion-dollar tax cut for lower- and middle-income earners of tens of billions of dollars a year.

Whatever Happened to Property Rights? by Stephen Moore

I'm no lawyer, that's for sure, and so I don't have expertise on the intricacies of the law, but I am angry as a hornet by the recent Supreme Court decision upholding the federal "eviction moratorium."

Biden Economic Strategy: Put America Last By Stephen Moore

President Joe Biden's performance at the meeting with foreign leaders in Britain last week was a disgrace. Biden cut deals with Britain that sold out America's interests, and for doing so, he won the worshipful accolades of the Europeans, the Brits and the Canadians. It's amazing how popular you are at a party when you pay everyone's bills. Except Biden isn't spending his own money, of course. He's spending ours.

Sorry, Joe: Fixing Roads and Bridges Doesn't Cost $2 Trillion By Stephen Moore

The Biden White House is furiously trying to cajole congressional Republicans into signing off on his $2 trillion "infrastructure bill." So far, they've held firm in saying not just no but "hell, no" to new taxes and spending to pay for all this.
