114. Rewarding Revolutions: School Choice, Flat Taxes, and Responsible Budgets
In this newsletter, I discuss how the revolutions of school choice, flat taxes, and responsible budgets will provide many rewards and other issues that will let people prosper.
I hope you’re having a prosperous week. It’s been a busy couple of weeks. I’ve been thrilled to see so many states moving forward with universal school choice bills being passed or moving through legislatures. I’m hopeful that Texas and all other states will do the same soon. The liberty and prosperity gained from the revolutions of school choice, flat taxes, and responsible budgets is extraordinary and must be expanded to have more opportunities that let people prosper. Let’s get to the content. Please subscribe, share, and leave a comment. Thanks!

TAKE ON STATE ECONOMIES & POLICIES
The Responsible State Budget revolution is happening! Here’s my work on this important issue to give people more opportunities to flourish. Daniel Mitchell had a good post on this here. And check out the newly published Conservative Iowa Budget by my good friend John Hendrickson at Iowans for Tax Relief Foundation.
Louisiana’s income taxes are highly progressive and are in need of substantial reform. Here’s why and how.
The burden of occupational licensing must be reduced. Here’s my latest research on the benefits of universal licensure in Arizona.
Don’t miss my research on a 3-step path to eliminating property taxes in Texas which starts with spending less.
Texas and other states shouldn’t be giving out corporate welfare with taxpayer dollars, or at all, and instead, put property taxes on a path to elimination.
Here are the facts for what Texas is considering to do with its massive surplus which should primarily go to provide property tax relief. See more data here.
TAKE ON U.S. ECONOMY & POLICIES
My recent commentary explains the benefits of legal immigration and free trade despite what you hear from many who are more interested in politics than sound economics and reality.
There’s work to do with the U.S. tax code to make America more competitive.
The initiatives to empower bureaucrats to protect kids on social media instead of parents and to make “Big Tech” more powerful are bad moves.
We need less government planning for us to have more ways to flourish.
The family is doing well. I recently attended an excellent unconference (look up what that means) in Miami with a great group of free-market folks who are working together to fight big-government efforts by the left and many on the new right. This is a valiant effort that must be won through sound ideas, basic economics, and continual outreach. I’ll keep doing my part and I hope you will, too. I’ll be busy over the next couple of weeks attending the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Policy Summit in Austin, Texas from March 1-3 and then the Pelican Institute for Public Policy‘s Tech Summit on March 8 and Solutions Summit on March 9 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Please leave me a comment if you’ll be attending these as it would be great to connect. I’m excited about the upcoming research, outreach efforts, bills to be passed, podcast interviews, and, most importantly, time with my family. Keep us in your prayers. Here’s a good memory that I had recently from my time at the White House.
I’m praying that we understand this every day. Amen!
Let people prosper.
