Obama's No-Growth State of the Union

The Fed is printing and printing and printing ... and we're told again and again not to worry ... no inflation on the horizon. Then the idiot Prez. wants to raise the minimum wage which is guaranteed to stoke inflation because product prices are largely driven by labor costs. Couple that with increased capital gains taxes and its obvious that seniors will be screwed big time. So ... dry up investment by drying up investment income, raise unemployment at the bottom of the economic hierarchy, and raise prices across the board. Who among us is going to continue pissing into the wind ... working our @sses off to have nothing?? Net, net, economic activity will go underground ... cash transactions and/or money for investments will leave the US.

By far the best line from this week's dueling State of the Union messages came from Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. Nice and simple, and right to the point:

"Presidents in both parties -- from John F. Kennedy to Ronald Reagan -- have known that our free-enterprise economy is the source of our middle-class prosperity."

That's a brilliant summary of pro-growth policies, on the supply-side and in a free-market context.

Kennedy slashed tax rates and held down the budget. So did Ronald Reagan, who borrowed Kennedy's ideas: smaller government, lower tax-rate incentives and a thriving middle class, where the economic pie grows ever larger....
