Political Insanity

Reaganomics Tax Experiment Still Going Poorly in Kansas. In 2012, Kansas passed large tax cuts championed by Republican governor Sam Brownback and Ronald Reagan-affiliated economist Arthur Laffer, who said the move would create tens of thousands of jobs and result in "enormous prosperity." But the state has subsequently added jobs at a slower rate than neighboring states (and the country as a whole) while coming up against significant revenue shortfalls.

Sarah Palin Shells Out 3 Percent of PAC Money to Endorsed Candidates. According to OpenSecrets.org, Sarah Palin's political action committee, SarahPAC boasted $1.4 million in the third quarter—mighty impressive and an encouraging number for the candidates that constitute Palin's Picks, if only they actually received a good chunk of that money. But nope, Palin's PAC generously donated a meager $45,000 total to Republican candidates. That just over 3 percent. The generosity is really touching.

Senate Republicans halted a Democratic measure that would limit tax breaks for companies that outsource jobs and operations from the U.S. The plan would have denied U.S. companies a tax deduction for the costs of moving out of the country and provided a tax credit for companies bringing operations home. It wouldn’t have affected the trend of companies moving their legal addresses to other countries through transactions known as inversions.
