Catching Up With CPAC Underway In DC

This year’s CPAC is underway in Washington, DC. There will be a number of high-profile speakers and the topic is sure to focus on the new direction for the GOP during their period in the Beltway wilderness. While the mainstream press will doubtless provide plenty of coverage, for a more personal touch I would suggest stopping by Hot Air for a series of live broadcasts with interviews, panel sessions and more, televised on line by Ed Morrissey. There will be a live, online chat running most of the day and evening over the course of the event this year, so you can share your observations with other interested viewers and catch the latest action as it happens.

Catch all the action here. And if you stop by, I’ll probably be moderating the chat on and off as time allows, so be sure to say hi if you see me there.

    What should be taxed is consumption, not wealth. A national sales tax would accomplish this quite handily, then income taxes – with its attendant labyrinthine income tax code – could be dismantled altogether. Incidentally, Mike Huckabee has already proposed this, though he’s hardly the first to do so. As I recall, this was Jerry Brown’s position when he ran for president years ago, before he landed in his current post as California AG.

    If you tax consumption, you still have to exempt certain items like food and clothing. Otherwise it’s a terribly regressive tax.

    The other problem with consumption taxes is that they are less stable. Here in Tennessee we have no income tax and our state’s revenues have completely dried up as people no longer purchase things they did before. If we had an income tax, the state would be able to make a more accurate forecast of revenues; the job losses and pay cuts so far are much less dramatic than the sales dropoffs.
