Tuesday Short Cuts

"If AOC or Warren were to have their way, the rich would pay less, not more, of the burden of the taxes." —Stephen Moore

For the record: “Joking comments, minor changes to the Republican Party’s platform and the legal firing of the FBI director hardly constitute collusion with Russia. If the things cited against Trump are evidence of collusion with Russia, then the entire Democrat Party should have been under suspicion for years. Ted Kennedy invited the Russians to meddle in our elections. Democrats opposed everything Ronald Reagan did to fight the Soviet Union. Obama did nothing when Putin invaded Ukraine. And what about Hillary’s attempt to ‘reset’ our relations with Russia or sell 20% of our uranium to a Russian company?” —Gary Bauer

Food for thought: “When the top tax rate was 70 percent in 1980, the richest 1 percent paid about 20 percent of all income taxes. In 2016, the most recent year we have good data, with a top tax rate of 39.6 percent, the top 1 percent paid almost 40 percent of income taxes. This suggests that if [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] or [Elizabeth] Warren were to have their way, the rich would pay less, not more, of the burden of the taxes.” —Stephen Moore

Friendly fire: “I don’t want us Democrats going out and making false promises. As I said in the op-ed that I wrote, free college is not the answer. The Democratic Party should not support Terry McAuliffe’s kids going to college. I can afford to send my kids.” —Terry McAuliffe

Non Compos Mentis: “I didn’t call [Louis Farrakhan] the greatest of all time because of his rhetoric. I called him the greatest of all time because of what he’s done in black communities.” —Women’s March co-president Tamika Mallory

Alpha Jackass: “Today SCOTUS decides whether it will hear an Indiana case requiring mandatory cremation/ burial for abortions AND miscarriages based on ‘dignity of personhood[.]’ If they take it, & decide medical waste is a person, ROE IS DEAD. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION.” —"The Daily Show" creator Lizz Winstead

And last… “No one accused Obama of being a Russian agent after he asked for ‘more flexibility’ until after the the election, or when Obama ignored Putin’s invasion into Crimea, or when Assad used chemical gas in Syria and Obama’s red line was crossed.” —Charlie Kirk
