For those on the right who do support a carbon tax—primarily conservative and libertarian-leaning economists like Gregory Mankiw, Kevin Hassett, and Irwin Stelzer—a primary attraction is the opportunity to use carbon tax revenues to cut taxes on productive activity, like labor and investment, and instead substitute a price on externalities that hurt the public. Adele Morris of the Brookings Institution has shown how a very modest carbon tax could easily help the United States bring… Continue reading
Fox News host Bill O’Reilly argued to PBS counterpart Tavis Smiley on Thursday that Republicans are less apathetic regarding Black voters than they are afraid of them. “I think they’re more intimidated than uncaring,” O’Reilly said. “Intimidated by what?” Smiley asked skeptically. “Are Black folks scary?” “No, no.

It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader,” Landrieu… Continue reading
It looks like the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is bracing for a bad election next week. At least, that’s what they’re openly telling supporters. The latest alarmist fundraising email from the Democratic group has this subject line: “Accept Defeat.” “We are completely out of ideas,” the first line of the email reads. “After Hillary Clinton emailed you this morning to ask for help, we really thought we would be in a better place. “But we… Continue reading
The New Mexico Motor Vehicles Division (MVD) has reportedly stopped issuing driver’s licenses or photo identification cards used for voting to so-called “illiterates” who only speak the Navajo language. In a memo obtained by ProgressNowNM, Bureau Chief Aurora Lopez outlines the policy for MVD employees. “Agents are not allowed to read the questions on driver’s applications to a customer,” Lopez writes. “They would [need] a letter stating that they have a condition that falls under… Continue reading
