US Taxpayers To Pay Iran’s Compensation To Hostage Crisis Victims

A fund of over $1 billion has been created for the U.S. embassy personnel taken hostage by Iran after the 1979 Islamic Revolution, but it is the U.S. taxpayer, not Iran, who will be paying for it. The new fund, known as the “United States Victims of State Sponsors of Terrorism Fund,” was an addition to the omnibus bill put forward by Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama Dec. 28. As much as $4.4 million could go to each of the 52 Americans held by Iran, with another $600,000 Read more […]

Hillary Rolls Back On Middle Class Tax Pledge

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wavered on her pledge not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 a year during an appearance on “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” Sunday. When asked if her claims are “rock solid read-my-lips promise,” the former secretary of state tells the host it’s a goal not to increase taxes, but doesn’t say it’s out of the realm of possibility. “Well, it certainly is my goal. And I’ve laid it out in this campaign. Read more […]

Obama Introduces New Taxes as “The Most Elegant Way” to Fight Climate Change!

Climate Change is blushing. It had no idea how President Barack Obama felt about it until Obama told the folks in Paris that he had an “elegant” solution to stopping Climate Change. In an effort to care for what Obama and other Democrats see as the most pressing issue of our day (more than Islamic terrorism, more than Russian aggression, more than the economic collapse facing several important European nations, more than the continued violence and chaos in central Africa), the President has Read more […]

Obama’s EPA Spending Millions of Tax Dollars… Overseas

President Barack Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency has doled out nearly $25 million to foreign nations and entities — including many countries with terrible environmental track records through 135 separate grants. Officials at the EPA defend the awards to international organizations and foreign governments since 2009. “Our limited international investments are focused where we can have the biggest environmental protection return,” EPA spokeswoman Melissa Harrison tells The Daily Read more […]

Obama Says He and McDonald are not Satisfied, But they Paid Millions in VA Bonuses

One of the things that made America great was the persistent and unfailing understanding that you only received what you had earned. There was no such thing as a free lunch. No one expected to receive anything without hard work, and no one was giving handouts. But, this has all changed. We now live in a nation where people who run million dollar companies into the ground receive “golden parachute” severance packages. Executives who are not seeing things get better, but are not seeing them get Read more […]

House Passes Sweeping Budget Deal, Angering Conservatives

The House passed a sweeping bipartisan budget deal negotiated by party leaders and the White House Wednesday, angering some conservative House Republicans. The deal passed 266-167 with the support of just 79 Republicans and every Democrat who voted. It lifts the debt ceiling until March, 2017, preventing a potentially disastrous default on U.S. debt the Treasury Department warned was just days away, and putting a temporary end to constant fiscal cliffs. Republican Rep. Paul Ryan’s expected Read more […]

Leftist DOJ Finds no Evidence of Wrongdoing in IRS Targeting

I have seen my share of “good ole’ boy” backscratching.  It is frowned upon by most people.  It has this air of giving someone something that they have not earned or allowing them to get away with something that they should not have done.  And, it is something that has always been a part of the American legal system. So, whether you are let off a speeding ticket because the state trooper was a frat brother of your dad, or it is political favors from the U.S. Department of Justice, this Read more […]

Guess Who Just PROMISED to RAISE Everyone’s Taxes?

How is Bernie Sanders even relevant? For over one hundred years America has valiantly fought against the evils of socialism and communism. Thousands of men have given their lives to keep the leviathan from our golden shores, and how does this generation repay their sacrifices? We allow a socialist to become a “mainstream” candidate for our highest political office! It’s reprehensible. Hopefully, a few more video clips like the one from a recent Bernie Sanders visit to ABC’s Today Read more […]

Lew Warns that Debt Ceiling Must be Raised

There has been little if any understanding of the meaning of ceiling in Congress over the passed eight years.  When it comes to debt and the wholesale borrowing by our government over the past thirty years, the set debt limit has proven to be little more than a set spending challenge.  It is as if someone was challenging Congress and the President to beat the number.  And no matter who is running things, they consistently have and then surpassed that number. Now, in the face of another deadline Read more […]

Rick Santorum Argues for 20% Flat Tax on ALL Income

On Tuesday morning presidential candidate Rick Santorum (R-PA) appeared on Fox News with Bill Hemmer to discuss the Democrat debate and his own presidential campaign. The most interesting point that Santorum raised was on taxation, where he argued that we must replace our archaic “regressive” tax code with a simple 20% flat tax on all income. On Monday Santorum released on op-ed in the Wall Street Journal where he outlined his “20/20” Plan arguing for a 20% across the board flat tax Read more […]

A Must See Video for Understanding Stupid Liberal Tax Ideas

Some time back, the brilliant minds at Prager University developed a wonderful video to help explain America’s idiotic progressive tax code. The video explains our nation’s ridiculous tax system with a simple story about three brothers, and it is wonderful. “The Progressive Income Tax” is one of those economic terms that gets bandied about, but few actually know what it means or how it works. This tale of three similar brothers with three different incomes (but one shared expense) helps explain Read more […]

EPA Administrator Rips Taxpayers for Thousands in Travel Costs

With eco-alarmists screaming that the sky is falling, and the oceans are rising, one would think that the agency established to safeguard against environmental abuse would be the first to cut out unnecessary travel.  Those guarding us against total environmental meltdown should be the most careful.  Yet, we are finding that they are the worst of hypocrites.  Not only are they dumping toxic waste into the Colorado River, now they are jet-setting. The Fox reports An Environmental Protection Read more […]

Socialist Elizabeth Warren says “Donald Trump and I Both Agree there Ought to be More Taxation of Billionaires”

Popular socialist leader and Democrat Senator from Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren took a swipe at GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump on Tuesday when she said that the two agree on certain tax policies. Warren was a guest on ABC’s the View (where she seemed to be treated far better than any Republican candidate ever has) when she made the controversial and ironic statement. However, the worst part of the statement is that it’s not far from the truth, as Trump has long advocated for a large Read more […]

Obama Threatens Veto and Shut Down if Congress does not Open Your Pocketbook to His Socialist Policies

People do not like to admit the fact most of our tax monies go to propping up socialist/big government programs.  Social Security, welfare, unemployment, public education and government housing are all socialistic programs.  Programs that would be better and more successful in private hands, but have been handed over to the State to force our compliance to give into what it deems right.  And now, to further this spend crazy progressive policy, our president is once again setting up his dupes on Read more […]
