    In Pictures: How High Will Taxes Go?

    What’s the latest plan from the left to pay for President Obama’s latest batch of stimulus spending? More taxes on high-income earners, of course.

    Morning Bell: Still Jobless After All These Years

    Yesterday at the White House, President Barack Obama faced the media to once again plug the American Jobs Act–his plan for more stimulus spending, paid for with even more taxes on America’s job creators.

    Four 'Green Job' Realities

    Solyndra’s bankruptcy has put federal spending for green projects under the microscope—and rightly so. Green jobs programs have been a profoundly wasteful use of taxpayers’ money and are doing more harm to the economy than helping it. They don’t even provide the promised grand environmental benefits. It’s important to keep … More

    'Buffett Rule' Tanks in California, Is Bad News for Tech Startups

    President Obama is touting his new mega tax on millionaires–a.k.a. “the Buffett Rule”–as the best thing since sliced bread (or since his plan to spend $447 billion on more stimulus), but not everyone agrees–namely, entrepreneurs and those who have seen the effects of soaking the rich in order to pay … More
