Tax Hikes Could Stall Economy

Stephen Moore, senior economics writer for The Wall Street Journal, cautions against raising taxes given the fragile state of the economy and sluggish signs of growth. He tells Newsmax that further slippage could thrust America into a double-dip recession, with disastrous consequences.

Turbo-Charge the Economy

Stephen Moore, economist with the Wall Street Journal, advocates adoption of a flat, 19 percent tax rate, saying “if you do that, you’re injecting rocket fuel into the economy.” But at the minimum, Moore says, Congress needs to overhaul our nation’s tax code, calling it too broken to fix in a piecemeal fashion. Moore also offers his assessment of the 2012 election, and predicts it will be a squeaker, decided by a percent or two either way. Watch his interview with Nick Gillespie from Reason.TV.
