Which party would you think of if I said "they believe in helping the less fortunate in this country"? How can raising taxes on business, help the less fortunate in this country? Will it reduce the prices they charge for the products and services they sell, or would it increase the price of the products and services they sell. Isn't the answer it will tend to increase prices, not decrease prices? How does that help the less fortunate in this country?

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....
