Stephen Moore

We Need Supply Side Warrior Steve Moore On The Fed Board

We strongly support Stephen Moore for the Fed Board and urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators today (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to urge them to vote to confirm Steve Moore when his nomination to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors comes before the Senate.

Stephen Moore and Herman Cain Are Just What the Fed Needs

Ralph Benko, The American Spectator

Whether or not one accepts Moore’s commodities-index target (I do not) or Cain’s belief in the gold standard (I do), their appointment and confirmation would be consistent with President Trump’s reported desire for better equitable prosperity. Moore calls himself a “growth hawk.” Herman Cain is a sure-enough pro-prosperity supply-sider. Bring it on. Confirming Stephen Moore and Herman Cain would not undermine the Fed’s independence. There’s nothing innately partisan about equitable prosperity. Some of prosperity’s greatest champions, such as the late President John F. Kennedy and the former U.S. Senator Bill Bradley, have been Democrats. President Reagan was a Democrat until his party left him.

Who’s Afraid of Stephen Moore? And Why?

John Fund, National Review

The notion that having Moore on the Federal Reserve Board will make the Fed recklessly follow Donald Trump’s whims is preposterous. All key Fed decisions are made by a committee of up to twelve members — the seven governors nominated by the White House and five heads of regional Fed banks. Moore would be one voice at the table. What’s really astonishing about the hysterical reaction to Moore’s appointment to the Fed is how much it reveals the intellectual insecurity and clannishness at the heart of the Washington policy community.

Media Buries Trump’s Good Economic News

Obsessed as the establishment media is with fake news, you’d never know that – thanks in large measure to President Trump’s deregulation and economic policies – we are rapidly closing-in on the 4 percent economic growth target the President set during the campaign.

President Trump Keeping Promise To Coal Miners

"Since Trump has come back into office, I've gotten back in the mines. Trump has done more for coal in a week than Obama did in an 8-year term," said miner Chad Smith.

Paul Ryan And Mitch McConnell’s Do Nothing Congress

A close look reveals that the last two months have not been characterized so much by what has happened but by what has not. It is time Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell got something remotely resembling President Trump’s legislative agenda moving.

Trump's Speech on Jobs and Economic Growth

Donald Trump's jobs and economic growth plan, conceived with the guidance of conservative economists Stephen Moore and Larry Kudlow, with its emphasis on lower taxes and lighter regulation and its goal of adding 25 million jobs and achieving 4 percent economic growth is starting to look more and more Reagan-like.

The GOP’s Paul Ryan Problem

Liberals and the Democratic Party exist solely to divide-up the spoils extorted from producers by the welfare state and cutting federal spending undermines their very reason for being. The Ryan spending deal passed by the House last night shows that establishment Republicans, led by Paul Ryan, embrace those same impulses.
