D.C. Disease and the GOP's "Electeds"

Mr. Hewitt, apparently your broader point - that our representatives have a WEALTH of resources available just for the asking and they are NOT taking advantage of it - was lost on some of the other commenters.

I'm sure everyone of us can take exception to one or more of Mr. Hewitt's bullet points, but on the whole, I think he has it. But the big takeaway I got is that our representatives are not talking to these people. Jeez, if I was a Congressman or Senator and could get the input of the likes of George Will, Charles Krauthammer, Hugh Hewitt, Mark Levin, et al, I would devote as much time as possible doing so.
Amen, brother!
Why in the world would you boycott BK for this? Frankly, I consider their response to our government tyranny a patriotic move. Imagine yourself sitting down to count the net earnings of your business and counting it out like this: "3 for me, 2 for you; 3 for me, 2 for you...". That is what a 40% tax rate does. I will do the exact opposite of boycotting. I will visit a Burger King as soon as possible to thank them for standing up to tyranny.
A U.S. business income tax rate of ZERO will: + stop the flow of corporations moving overseas; + start the flow of corporations moving to America; + cause countless billions of dollars currently being held overseas by U.S. multinationals to come flowing into the U.S. + significantly increase foreign investment in the U.S. + eliminate the need for corporate tax compliance organizations, saving businesses even more money + provide businesses significantly more money to reinvest in further growth + encourage new businesses to be created + create an untold number of jobs through the inflow of capital and the growth of businesses + allow us to eliminate large sections of IRS tax law, including every corporate loophole ever written + eliminate the rules & regulations around non-profit corporations (501c3's etc) + allow us to dismantle the corporate division of the IRS, saving billions of taxpayer dollars We would be saying to the world: "America is open for business!". And there are some side benefits. The corporate tax code is a source of power for politicians. With it, the corporations and lobbyists come, genuflecting, to the politicians, seeking exemptions and loopholes. When the tax rate is zero, the value of those loopholes is also ZERO. corporations have nothing to be gained through lobbying. This would shrivel corporate lobbying and kill a big source of the reason for crony capitalism. For those who don't like corporate spending in political campaigns, with ZERO to be gained via political connections, corporate political spending will dry up.
The Thought Police would nail me on this. My thoughts exactly.

The Republican Racist Myth

What a distorted view you have. A moment's research makes it clear that these laws came into existence in the 1850's, which was about the time the "party of Lincoln" began to form and definitely before it had gained any power. Colonization? Yes, Lincoln did originally entertain that thought, but he listened to Frederick Douglas who convinced him it was not a good idea. With regard to the party of Lincoln saying whites were superior to blacks, pretty much every white person said that back then, even many of the abolitionists. Without Lincoln, slavery either would have continued in a united United States, or we would have split into two nations, one with slavery and one without. Do a little more reading.
Please pass along a big "thank you" to your son for his service. I hope there are enough like him that you are right about this generation, but I'm afraid there are way too many who are completely tuned out.

Mr. Kudlow, I would like to see someone really build the economic case for ZERO income tax rate on businesses - what would happen in our economy and why.
1) "reforms that boost saving and investment, such as lowering the corporate tax rate, reducing the double taxation of dividends and capital gains." 2) "average voters may not understand how they benefit from tax reforms" Here's a reform that addresses all of point number 1); Set the business income tax rate at ZERO percent. Point number 2) belongs to the Mr. Dan Mitchell's of the world, but here are the benefits to be extolled. A U.S. business income tax rate of ZERO will + stop the flow of corporations moving overseas; + start the flow of corporations moving to America; + cause countless billions of dollars currently being held overseas by U.S. multinationals to come flowing into the U.S. + significantly increase foreign investment in the U.S. + eliminate the need for corporate tax compliance organizations, saving businesses even more money + provide businesses significantly more money to reinvest in further growth + encourage new businesses to be created + create an untold number of jobs through the inflow of capital and the growth of businesses + allow us to dismantle the corporate division of the IRS, saving taxpayer dollars + allow us to eliminate large sections of IRS tax law, including every corporate loophole ever written + eliminate the rules & regulations around non-profit corporations (501c3's etc) We would be saying to the world: "America is open for business!".
