    Free Trade Fact of the Day

    Why Does Dodd Get Special Deal?

    As the sponsor of a $300 billion housing bailout, you’d think liberal Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) would disclose his ties to the mortgage industry. Guess again. As coverage of Dodd’s sweetheart deal has intensified, so too have the senator’s critics. In a new video outside Dodd’s Washington, D.C., townhouse, our … More

    Taxing Like It's 1978

    Yesterday we noted that the U.S. has the second-highest corporate tax rate in the world. Currently, Americans’ personal income tax burden is not nearly as bad, but under Sen. Barack Obama’s tax plan, it would be. Combining Obama’s promise to end the Bush tax cuts with his promise to uncap the … More
