Rasmussen poll finds highest-ever number believe tax cuts spur growth

WASHINGTON – A record number of voters agree with the Libertarian Party that tax cuts would help spur economic growth, America’s third-largest party notes Monday.

A Rasmussen Reports poll released March 26 finds 63 percent of all voters now say tax cuts will help America’s economy.  That’s an increase from the 56 percent measured in February and the highest number since Rasmussen began tracking the question in the mid-1990s.

Among unaffiliated voters, the number is even higher – 68 percent.

P&G CEO: New Obama tax grab destroys American jobs

Barack Obama's plans to immediately grab a chunk of income earned overseas will destroy American jobs and make it harder for employers to compete with foreign businesses, Proctor and Gamble CEO A.G. Lafley says in Sunday's Cincinnati Enquirer.

Currently, companies are allowed to defer payment on foreign income until the funds are brought back into the United States.  Under the newest Obama tax grab scheme, American employers who make money in foreign markets would have to immediately pay the taxes, giving a competitive advantage to foreign companies.

Should bailed-out homeowners pay back THEIR tax-funded windfall, too?

Stan Liebowitz, Research Fellow at The Independent Institute, thinks so.  He writes in the March 17 Investors Business Daily (linked from The Independent Institute:)

The U.S. public is outraged at the $165 million in bonuses paid to employees of insurance giant American International Group after AIG received billions in government bailout funds—and Washington is looking for ways to make bonus recipients pay back the money.

Did so-called "universal health care" kill actress?

Cody Williams, a Chicago physician, writes in today's New York Post how Obama-style socialized medicine may have played a role in the death of actress Natasha Richardson, who died last week in Canada from a simple injury easily treatable in the United States.

Williams writes, in part:

Canadian health care de-emphasizes widespread dissemination of technology like CT scanners and quick access to specialists like neurosurgeons. While all the facts of Richardson's medical care haven't been released, enough is known to pose questions with profound implications.
