Tuesday Executive News Summary

Biden policy hits household income, CRT going federal, immigration newspeak, and more.

Top of the Fold

  • One key Biden policy will reduce household income by $1,650 (FEE)

“The president wants to pay for his multi-trillion-dollar [American Jobs Act] in part by raising the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent. A new study from the conservative-leaning Heritage Foundation finds that this tax increase on ‘Big Business’ would ultimately be borne in large part by workers. … One mistake many people often make is assuming that whoever is formally assigned a tax is also who ultimately bears the costs. But this isn’t necessarily the case, because people change their behavior as a result of tax increases — raising prices, decreasing investment, changing consumption habits, and so on.”

“The woke revolution in the classroom is about to go federal. … Biden’s Department of Education has just released the text of a proposed new rule establishing priorities for grants in American History and Civics Education programs. That rule gives priority to grant ‘projects that incorporate racially, ethnically, culturally, and linguistically diverse perspectives.’ The rule goes on to cite and praise the New York Times’ ‘landmark’ 1619 Project, as well as the work of Critical Race Theorist Kendi, as leading examples of the sort of ideas the Biden administration wants to spread.”
