Judge Kavanaugh’s Deregulatory Agenda 25.7.2018 American Prospect
AP Photo/Evan Vucci President Donald Trump shakes hands with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in the East Room of the White House Most of us take for granted the federal regulations that make our air cleaner, our drinking water purer, our food, highways and workplaces safer, and our economic transactions less vulnerable to fraud and abuse. And few of us realize the extent to which those protections are subject to reversal by federal courts applying legal principles prescribed by the Supreme Court. If confirmed to the Supreme Court, Judge Brett Kavanaugh would be a fervent vote against even well established forms of regulation. A telling example of Kavanaugh’s ideological aversion to even minimal government regulation is his dissent in a case in which the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) fined SeaWorld of Florida following a tragic incident at its Orlando facility in which a killer whale named Tilikum pulled a trainer off a platform and held her underwater until she drowned.  A ...

The Tax Act and Republican Economic Mythology 17.7.2018 American Prospect
(Alex Edelman/picture-alliance/dpa/AP Images) Paul Ryan and Republicans speak at the White House on December 20, 2017, after the passage of their tax bill. Why is it that even though the economy has done better under Democrats than Republicans for decades, Americans have long considered the GOP to be the better party when it comes to “the economy and jobs”? The answer is that for decades Republicans have told a consistent story about how the economy works: Businesses are the job creators so government should cut taxes and regulations and let the free market work. That’s the story they are using to sell the 2017 Tax Act, and it’s still believed by a majority of voters. However, the tax law has given Democrats a tremendous opportunity. They can use the Republican tax cuts as an opportunity to debunk the GOP trickle-down narrative and provide a progressive explanation of how we can grow the economy, create jobs, and raise wages for everyone. While public opinion toward the new tax law remains divided along ...
