Tax cuts do not have to be “paid for.” All tax cuts are good because they are steps toward economic freedom–and with economic freedom comes greater prosperity. Gov. Christie is not showing any leadership. Why he is obsessed with a sales tax cut is incomprehensible. Eventually, all taxes should be cut. In the meantime, there is a proposal on the table that reduces several onerous taxes. Get on board governor.
“In another great example of how things work in Trenton, it’s time for legislators to act on the only thing that remotely makes sense and override Christie.”

The solution to illegal immigration is simple. If you came to America without following the rules, you can stay in the country but can never become a citizen and therefore a voter. In other words, you become a permanent guest in America. If you are undocumented and commit a crime, you will be deported ASAP. You must get a sponsor who will vouch for your character and be responsible for your “welfare” ASAP. Therefore, as a guest in America you will not be eligible for any entitlement benefits. You will be able to work, start a business and raise a family just like legal immigrants. Guests would still have to pay income, sales and other taxes just like other Americans. Children born in the US of guests do not automatically become citizens. They are eligible for citizenship when they reach a certain age–to be negotiated.
As far as Social Security and Medicare taxes and benefits are concerned, this is where it gets tricky. My preference is to exempt permanent guests from these taxes and benefits so we can begin phasing out the welfare state. However, this would make it very attractive for employers to hire guests instead of legal citizens. So the solution is to eliminate these taxes for all young workers in order to have a “level playing field” for citizens and guests. Other issues can be negotiated by the next president and Congress.
This will put on notice to anyone around the world that if you come to America in the future, uyou will be deported if you overstay your visa or enter the country surreptitiously.
The general principle is illegal immigrants should not be rewarded for jumping ahead of others who have waited years to enter American legally.

“When financial markets slumped in 2008, the assets in government-worker pension funds plunged and public sector retirement debt soared. Although pension officials rushed to assure the public that their funds would recover as soon as stocks rebounded, the long bull market that began the following year didn’t do much to cut states steep retirement debt. Most state and local pension funds closed the books on their latest fiscal year on June 30… early returns suggest that the industry fell well short of its lofty investment goals.” Read the rest by clicking on the link.
