It has been a year since Congress passed President Trump's tax cuts, and the United States leapt from a back-of-the-pack 35 percent corporate income tax to a competitive 21 percent. Together with other provisions, such as changes to tax write-off rules and a one-time tax break for capital repatriation, the bill helped boost economic activity during 2018.

No, Obamacare will not go away. Despite a federal judge ruling it unconstitutional, you can bet that Congress will find a way to keep it on the books.
There is a lot more at stake here than just Obamacare. If this case, known as Texas v Azar, goes all the way to the Supreme Court, it could set a precedent for other entitlement programs. For this reason alone, neither Democrats nor Republicans will let that happen.

Challenge to debate paid family leave:
I hereby challenge anyone, conservative or liberal, to debate paid family leave in a public forum.
This challenge goes out to the Independent Women's Forum, the American Enterprise Institute, or anyone else who is in favor of paid family leave.
Anywhere, any time.
------I have no allergies. Strike that: I have one. I am allergic to perbertility.
Perbertility is the combination of stupidity and arrogance. I do not often come across examples of it, which makes every case of perbertility stand out even more.
The paid-family leave issue has brought such a case to the spotlight: the Independent Women's Forum.

This article provides a background to one of the important features of my book The Rise of Big Government: How Egalitarianism Conquered America where I discuss the modern American welfare state and its ideological roots in totalitarian Swedish political theory.
In the first installment of this two-part series I discussed two examples of academic political corruption: the increasingly absurd efforts by terracentricists to defend their idea that the Earth was the center of the universe; and the equally absurd attempts by climate "scientists" to defend their deteriorating discipline.
