The GOP Must Avoid This Trap
Republicans look set to take both houses of Congress this November and to win the White House in 2024.
This episode of What’s Ahead deals with a critical question: Will the GOP squander its opportunities the way Boris Johnson and his Conservative Party-controlled government have done in Britain? Spending has soared, taxes have gone up, regulations have multiplied, and inflation is higher than it is here.
Republicans know better than to boost taxes, but their pre-Covid record on spending was an embarrassment. And they have yet to come up with specific tax cut plans or actual ways to reduce government’s growing, stifling role in healthcare.
The GOP should embrace the innovative methods that several Republican governors have used to deal with taxes, healthcare and education.
