Trump honors economist who advised him on lowering taxes

President Donald Trump awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Wednesday to economist Arthur Laffer, whose disputed theories on tax cuts have guided Republican policy since the 1980s.

Laffer, 78, advised Trump during his presidential campaign and co-wrote a flattering book, "Trumponomics: Inside the America First Plan to Revive Our Economy." Laffer says lower tax rates change people's behavior and stimulate economic growth, creating more tax revenue for the government, not less.

Allies credit Laffer with helping to spur income tax reductions around the world and boosting national economies as a result. Critics say the tax cuts he has espoused over the years have not produced the promised results and have instead contributed to growing income inequality and soaring budget deficits.

Well, not just him. I think they give out too many, period.

First, I don't think it should be given to anyone who is primarily known for being in the Military. Generals hardly ever need another medal.

Further, I don't think politicians should get one for something that is still seen as political when its awarded. There's a difference between giving one to Shirley Chisolm, who love her or hate her was a groundbreaking figure, and Orin Hatch who was a political hack who couldn't have been from anywhere but Utah, and I think its an important distinction that Chisom was awarded one posthumously and Hatch got one when Trump wanted to slobber on a conservative to give his followers a boner between rallys. Every ex-President can expect one it seems, and I for one thing a library, pension and book contracts plus a stamp when they die is enough. I find it interesting that Every ex-President since Kennedy except the last wo has gotten one, but no-one thought to give one to some of the otherwise under appreciated ones before that. If I ever get to pick, US Grant comes to mind. (okay okay I know he violates my Generals thing and he's not exactly a standout as Presidents go, but if I was on that subject, I could point out some things, and ditto Eisenhower)

I'm not real fond of giving it to religious personages, just because I think there's something in the Constitution about that and it kind of flirts with establishment to much for me.

And finally, I'll give every President a gimme for a friend, but just one. Trump has only given away 9, which I'd say puts him kind of behind the pace, but all of them were people who are kind of cheesy picks, sucking up to his base here and there and some of them...well, Tiger Woods is a great golfer, but like a lot of actors and athletes and other famous people, kind of a terrible human being sometimes.

Looks like @WallStreetJour is a troll account, but wondering why Twitter has not removed it on copyright grounds when they are using the WSJ logo.

Iran cannot have Nuclear Weapons! Under the terrible Obama plan, they would have been on their way to Nuclear in a short number of years, and existing verification is not acceptable. We are putting major additional Sanctions on Iran on Monday. I look forward to the day that.....

....Sanctions come off Iran, and they become a productive and prosperous nation again - The sooner the better!

At the request of Democrats, I have delayed the Illegal Immigration Removal Process (Deportation) for two weeks to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border. If not, Deportations start!

As I read it: the Senate, at least, had some bipartisan action going to get him some of the stuff he wants re: border..

So naturally he had to step on his tie and fall on his face.

I never called the strike against Iran “BACK,” as people are incorrectly reporting, I just stopped it from going forward at this time!

Iran will know if the bomber fleet was already airborne and turned around cause the cavallerie didn't get the final command to charge. That's all they need to get an insight in to the pea brain of dotus.

hm.
so.

You set in motion a strike against a sovereign nation, based on intel you never even saw.
You didn't have any idea what the strike was gonna do, or why we'd do it.
You didn't listen to anyone about why it might be 'good' or 'bad' or even what the casualties might be.
At some random point you called backsies.
And no disaster happened.

The best you can say is 'I didn't call it back, I just stopped it from going forward!"

And we're supposed to think you are brilliant?

Thank heavens you were only harassing teenage girls in 1962.

I want to give the Democrats every last chance to quickly negotiate simple changes to Asylum and Loopholes. This will fix the Southern Border, together with the help that Mexico is now giving us. Probably won’t happen, but worth a try. Two weeks and big Deportation begins!

China gets 91% of its Oil from the Straight, Japan 62%, & many other countries likewise. So why are we protecting the shipping lanes for other countries (many years) for zero compensation. All of these countries should be protecting their own ships on what has always been....
