Study: Tax Cuts for the Rich Don't Spur Growth
Cutting taxes for the wealthy does not generate faster economic growth, according to a new report. But those cuts may widen the income gap between the rich and the rest.
A study from the Congressional Research Service -- the non-partisan research office for Congress -- shows that "there is little evidence over the past 65 years that tax cuts for the highest earners are associated with savings, investment or productivity growth."
In fact, the study found that higher tax rates for the wealthy are statistically associated with higher levels of growth.
The finding is likely to fuel to the already bitter political fight over taxing the rich, with President Obama and the Democrats calling for higher taxes on the wealthy to reduce the deficit and fund spending. Mitt Romney and the GOP advocate lower marginal tax rates for top earners, saying they fuel investment and job creation.
The CRS study looked at tax rates and economic growth since 1945. The top tax rate in 1945 was above 90 percent, and fell to 70 percent in the 1960s and to a low of 28 percent in 1986.
The top current rate is 35 percent. The tax rate for capital gains was 25 percent in the 1940s and 1950s, then went up to 35 percent in the 1970s, before coming down to 15 percent today - the lowest rate in more than 65 years.
Lowering these rates for the wealthy, the study found, isn't aligned with significant improvement in any of the areas it examined. Pushing tax rates down had a "negligible effect" on private saving, and while it does note a relationship between investing and capital gains rates, the correlations "are not statistically significant," the study says.
"Top tax rates," it concludes, "do not necessarily have a demonstrably significant relationship with investment."
The study said that lower marginal rates have a "slight positive effect" on productivity while lower capital gains rates have a "slight negative association" with productivity. But, again, neither effect was considered statistically significant.
Do higher taxes on the rich lead to faster economic growth? Not necessarily. The paper says that while growth accelerated with higher taxes on the rich, the relationship is "not strong" and may be "coincidental," since broader economic factors may be responsible for that growth.

In fact, while Romney seemed to say that the president will draw most of his support from those who pay no income taxes, a Tax Foundation map highlighting the 10 states with the highest percentages of "non-payers" shows most are Republican territories:

-- Alabama

-- Arkansas

-- Florida

-- Georgia

-- Idaho

-- Louisiana

-- Mississippi

-- New Mexico

-- South Carolina

-- Texas

interesting. after hearing some of video about the 47%, i can't say that i disagree with him on some of the things he said.
but he probably lost whatever chance he had with trying to win over the lower and middle class.

You wish! Just trying to hype up what is not a very controversial statement.

Distraction. Get the people to avoid looking at the Muslim-Meltdown. Ignore Iran and the nukes. Unemployment? "Who cares!"

Bozo sinks lower every day. You can't stop the slide because you love the bad economy. You never met a depression you didn't love.

This afternoon, Gallup reported its latest presidential tracking poll, finding Obama's lead had slipped again. Today, he leads Romney, among registered voters, by 1 point, 47-46. This is the same level of support he had before the Democrat convention. More importantly though, it represents a 6 week swing in Obama's support in one week. Last week he led by 7 points. Clearly, the media will tell us this is trouble for Romney.

Like most modern candidates, Obama got a modest bump out of his convention. What was unique for Obama, however, is that the Democrat-media industrial complex used every available tool to amplify and sustain this bounce. All last week, the media pushed the "campaign is over" theme and obsessed over every perceived misstep made by the Romney campaign.

The entire political universe began convincing themselves--and broadcasting to viewers and readers--that Romney was fading away. And yet, Romney gained ground as Obama lost ground. Obama's approval rating slipped today under 50% to 49% and his disapproval rose. Expect the media to get very nervous now.

That's why the drive by media is so excited about the tape that they "uncovered". Funny thing is, Romney was telling the truth. 47% of the population doesn't pay income taxes. The uninformed class think payroll taxes and property taxes are income taxes. They're not!

The hatred his statement on Obama voters showed his the best way to lose all the undecided voters.

Using the socialist theme of 'never let a crisis go to waste': the Islamofascist uprising around the world over a obscure video, Obama will use that to commit treason. The November surprise from Obama will come AFTER election day.

"For those of you who don’t know, Omar Abdel-Rahman, aka “the blind sheik”, is serving a life sentence in a federal prison for his role in planning the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. He is also viewed, unsurprisingly, as a religious leader in most of the Arab world.

Thomas Jocelyn of the Weekly Standard does a great job of connecting the dots and makes a compelling case that the sacking of US diplomatic facilities on September 11 was part of a larger effort to secure the release of Omar Abdel-Rahman.

Now we have reports that the Obama Administration is in negotiations with the government of Egypt to release the blind sheik from prison:

The U.S. State Department is currently in negotiations with the Egyptian government for the transfer of custody of Omar Abdel-Rahman, also known as “the Blind Sheikh,” for humanitarian and health reasons, a source close to the the Obama administration told TheBlaze…

The negotiations are allegedly part of the ongoing discussions with the Egyptian government to resolve the crisis plaguing the Middle East, the source told TheBlaze. Calls to the State Department for comment referred us to the Department of Justice, and nothing has been confirmed.

The same story has also appeared in the Arab media. According to Al-Arabiya, as translated by Jihadwatch,

The Egyptian government has started real action to respond to a U.S. offer offering to release 50 Egyptians in American prisons, including Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, in return for the release of 19 Americans accused of foreign funding of nongovernmental organizations, as confirmed by Major General Mohamed Hani Zaher, an expert on military research and the fight against international terrorism.

Zaher told the newspaper that the Egyptians need to exploit the weak U.S. position, especially after the conviction of their nationals on charges affecting Egypt’s sovereignty over its territory, and not to allow this deal to take place without the agreement of the U.S. administration to release more than 500 Egyptian prisoners in U.S. custody; the Egyptian Foreign Ministry does not know anything about them."

When he doesn't know a camera's rolling, the GOP candidate shows his disdain for half of America.

Time for Romney to bow out of the race.
