    The setback we experienced in repealing and replacing Obamacare was disappointing, but instructive. Important elements of our society at large were not convinced and we found the same with our conservative base – AND we didn’t have in place the support system (“Healthcare Reform Truth Squad”) that understood the issues and could help us. We must change this for tax reform with a “Tax Reform Truth Squad.”


    CBO Has Become The Enemy Of Republican...


    The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) scored the House Republican health care bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare as reducing federal spending (virtually all of it entitlement spending) by well over a trillion dollars ($1.111 trillion), cutting federal taxes by nearly a trillion ($992 billion), and reducing the federal deficit by over a hundred billion ($119 billion), over the next 10 years alone.

    But that is where the CBO’s…

    Milton Friedman, the greatest economist of the 20th century, was the first to notice this historical pattern of the U.S. economy – the deeper the recession the stronger the recovery. That is because the U.S. economy grows faster than normal for a while to catch up to where it would have been without the recession.

    By Lewis K. Uhler and Peter J. Ferrara

    President Trump inherited an economy as troubled as the one Reagan faced in 1981.  Reagan entered office after a long period of economic stagnation and meager growth, the economy struggling to recover from repeated recessions.

    Milton Friedman was the first to observe that the deeper the recession, the stronger the recovery.  After a recession, the economy grows faster than normal for a period until it catches up with…


    Closing The Deal With Conservatives On Obamacare

    By Lewis K. Uhler and Peter J. Ferrara

    The national media – predictably – focused on the bad news for the GOP in the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) “score” of the Obamacare replacement bill: a predicted increase of 24 million uninsured after a decade.

    But CBO also provided some very good news for conservatives: the bill would reduce federal spending by $1.2 trillion over 10 years. The repeal of the Obamacare taxes in the bill…
