President Joe Biden insisted that giving the Internal Revenue Service $80 billion and hiring 87,000 new agents would be all about targeting the wealthy, not the middle class. Unsurprisingly, it turns out his new bulked-up IRS is the same as it always was.

Americans living in large, Democrat-run cities have watched their freedoms erode, year after year. At the moment, mayors and city councils are slashing budgets to accommodate illegal aliens. In some cities, mayors are begging residents to let illegals live in their homes.

That’s not even factoring in the exploding crime epidemic. Nor how these cities have already defunded the police, putting residents in harm’s way.

Horses taught Christine Searle the importance of being fair. Intelligent and innately honest creatures, horses know deceit when they see it. She wishes they could teach that principle to the state of Arizona.

The U.S. tax system is suffering from deep and systemic rot and needs a ground-up rebuild. But with the IRS acting more as the infection than the cure, restoring effectiveness to America’s tax system will require a revolutionary legislative reform effort based on bedrock principles of fairness and efficiency.

In the latest volley of policy proposals that seem more rooted in populist rhetoric than economic knowledge, President Joe Biden's budget plan to hike the corporate income tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent strikes me as particularly misguided. This move, ostensibly aimed at ensuring a "fair share" of contributions from corporate America, is a glaring testament to a simplistic and all-too-common type of economic thinking that already hamstrings our nation's competitiveness, stifles innovation, and ultimately penalizes the average American worker and consumer.

In a move that was expected, President Joe Biden unveiled his budget proposal for the election year on Monday.

The proposal, which calls for a whopping $5.5 trillion in tax increases, primarily targets the wealthy and corporations. The funds raised are intended to boost spending on federal benefits programs, affordable housing, and student loan cancellation, among other initiatives that are typically associated with progressive politics.

President Joe Biden plans to engage in some class warfare during his State of the Union Address on Thursday by calling for big tax increases on the super-wealthy and larger corporations.

According to the UK’s Daily Mail, Biden will call for raising the tax rate on corporations worth more than $1 billion from 15 percent to 21 percent, which is an increase from the 15 percent he called for earlier in his presidency.
