The tax cuts are looking like an improvement but they're far from good

Early responses to the tax cuts from companies across America are demonstrating positive movement. Some companies are already promising to raise wages or increase bonuses. Others will be more capable of hiring than they were before. Despite outrage from big government proponents and their mainstream media proxies, things are already starting to look up for the economy and a majority of Americans.

Unfortunately, this is a case of “something is better than nothing.” We needed tax cuts. While much of the focus has been on how individuals and families will be directly affected by the bill, the real boon for many Americans will come in the indirect effects of the corporate tax cuts. These have been, by far, my favorite component of the bill. Everything else is just a matter of redirecting of funds and sources.

I went into a little Tweetstorm last night explaining why I did not support the tax plan. It can be broken down into two problems: the bill is not true tax reform and they haven’t done nearly enough to rein in government spending. Until those two things are done, every other improvement on the progressive tax system is just a temporary fix.

The incremental ebb and flow of national government in America keeps us in a cycle of mediocrity. We gain a little here, lose a little there. We need to limit government, particularly in DC, and make them work within their means.

As long as DC continues to sidestep the major spending problems we have in this country from waste to entitlements to overreach, any positive move will be countered by negatives. America needs a party to take over that embraces the restraints on government laid out in the Constitution. It’s time for the Federalist Party to rise. If we don’t, we’ll continue in this cycle of ups and downs that act as camouflage for an ever-expanding government.
