Consider this just an ideas open thread.

Keep it clean, children could be reading.

I’ll start:  There is a deep sadness at the loss of members of SEAL Team 6.  Every soldier is valuable and mourned, but this tragedy seems to be special.

The debt deal “trigger” requires that one-half of the budget cuts come from the military if the “super committee” cannot reach agreement or if the Congress fails to pass the super committees proposal.

The concept was that fear of military cuts would force Republicans to strike a deal with the Democrats as...

I am amazed, once again, that liberals are not screaming at the tops of their lungs about Obama’s proposal to extend the social security tax holiday for another year.

I noted in October 2008,

There are parts of Steve Wynn’s anti-Obama “rant” which have received more attention, but this is the part that is key to me. 

It’s been something I’ve been writing about since before the election, the Obama effect.  It’s why Obama owns the job losses in the late fall...

I was right, mostly. The serious, conciliatory Obama showed up at the press conference today. The only reasonable person in the room was the theme.

I was wrong to the extent that in his opening statement and throughout Obama framed the issue as the Republicans not being serious, not living up to...

A deviation on a theme

Every time a couple making over $250,000 per year gets their taxes raised, a Democrat gets its wings.

Democrats have an idea.  Let’s take an additional $2 trillion from the private sector and give it to the federal government.

Last night John Boehner announced that Republicans were abandoning an attempt to reach a $4 trillion deficit reduction deal with Obama because Obama inisted on $1 trillion in tax increases.  

 Obama always wants new taxes on the “rich.”  As Michael Alan wrote here, Obama wanted tax increases before the credit crisis and...

Obama’s Tax Hikes Aren’t a Last Resort, They Were the Plan All Along

Posted by  ▪  Friday, July 1, 2011 at 1:46pm

In his rather “prickly” press conference on Wednesday, President Obama made it sound as if tax increases (or, to use the Democrats’ language, “cutting spending in the tax code”) were part of a last resort at trimming the deficit as the federal government reaches its $14 trillion debt ceiling.

Via TaxProf comes this news:  51% of income ”tax filing units” now pay no federal income tax.  While that does not necessarily translate into 51% of the population, it still shows that there is a strong political incentive to pander to those who pay no federal income taxes and to wail against...
