Congress Is Back to Serving Pork

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Pork is being served in Washington again. Big juicy slices to the lobbyists with the deepest wallets and the campaign contributors who write the biggest campaign reelection checks. It is the way of the swamp. It is the currency of the Washington Beltway. It explains how people get so rich in politics.

The two massive spending bills now ...Read more

Americans Should Be Working Hard, Not Hardly Working

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

The Labor Department reported this week that there are now a record 10.9 million jobs open in America. That's twice the size of the entire Ohio workforce.

Yet the department also has counted some 8 million unemployed Americans. What in the world is going on here? Why aren't the 8 million workers allegedly looking for a job filling any of the 10...Read more

There Goes Grandma Over the Cliff

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Democrats have made a living in recent times with political attack ads fallaciously accusing Republicans of secret plans to destroy Medicare and Social Security. In one famous TV ad, then-House Speaker Paul Ryan was depicted as shoving an elderly woman in a wheelchair off a cliff.

Well, Republicans may want to reprise that ad -- and toss it ...Read more

The Rich Already Pay Enough in Taxes, Especially in Freebies for the Lower Classes

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

President Joe Biden describes his $3.5 trillion spending scheme as a way to improve the economy and "build back better."

The intention is a good one, but at its core, this plan isn't so much about growing people's wealth as it is redistributing it. The goal is to make the economy not more prosperous but more equitable -- fairer.

The ...Read more

End the Real Estate Racket

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

The housing market is hot, hot, hot right now, and home prices continue to soar in many markets to their highest prices ever. Since it doesn't cost a real estate agent ten times as much to sell a million dollar home than a $100,000 home, one would expect that the percentage fees for real estate agents would be falling. They aren't. Why?

I ...Read more

Taxpayers Are Getting Ripped Off and Congress Does Nothing!

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Milton Friedman used to quip that, in Washington, if a government program is working, Congress says we need to spend more money on it. And if a government program is failing, Congress concludes we are not spending enough money on it.

We are seeing that in spades with the unemployment insurance program that has been looted by fraud for nearly 18...Read more

Hell No To a Debt Ceiling Increase

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Sometimes, when you go into a store with expensive merchandise on the shelves, you will see a sign that reads, "You break it, you buy it."

That's a good slogan for the Republicans as they continue to battle the left's economically catastrophic quest to bankrupt our country by authorizing some $6 trillion of new spending. This is the economic ...Read more

American Tech Sector Keeps Blowing Away the Rest of the World

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Take a bow, America. It's official and irrefutable: The U.S. is blowing out the rest of the world in tech leadership. No other country in the world comes anywhere close in tech innovation and the dominance of our made-in-America 21st-century companies.

The Nasdaq index of once-small technology companies reached 15,000 last week. Only a few ...Read more

How the Left Has Used COVID-19 to Bankrupt the United States

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

I have never bought the conspiracy theories that COVID-19 was a diabolical political plot to undermine the country. But what is apparent with each passing week is that the virus has been the springboard for the left's agenda to transform America in a way that Sen. Bernie Sanders, Michael Moore or Rachel Maddow could have never imagined.

Without...Read more

In Biden's America, Everyone is Entitled to Everything

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

Despite its liberal tendencies, The Washington Post editorial board once acknowledged that in a democracy, "everyone can't be entitled to everyone else's money."

Well, it may have had that wrong because President Joe Biden is supersizing the entitlement state of America at a pace that makes President Lyndon B. Johnson's Great Society ...Read more

OPEC and Big Oil's New Best Friend, Joe Biden

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

The price of oil surged to $75 a barrel the other day under President Joe Biden's green energy policies. The price was as low as $35 a barrel under former President Donald Trump because he believed in American energy dominance ("Drill, baby, drill"). So, more oil meant lower prices at the pump. It was effectively a massive, multibillion-dollar...Read more

Whatever Happened to Property Rights?

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

I'm no lawyer, that's for sure, and so I don't have expertise on the intricacies of the law, but I am angry as a hornet by the recent Supreme Court decision upholding the federal "eviction moratorium."

On Tuesday, the high court in a divided 5-4 opinion will allow the moratorium to continue until August. This moratorium allows people to stay in...Read more

The Return of the Corporate Welfare State

From the Right / Stephen Moore /

No one is paying much attention, but Washington is building up a vast new multitrillion-dollar welfare class: corporate America.

Deep inside President Joe Biden's budget are hundreds of billions of dollars of loans, grants and loan guarantees for corporate America. This Aid to Dependent Corporations is most prevalent in the area of renewable ...Read more
