This Celebrity Would Be Happy To Perform At The Trump Inauguration

Nicole Goodkind, Yahoo Finance

If reports are to be believed, it seems like President-Elect Donald Trump is having trouble finding A-list talent to perform at his Inauguration on January 20.

Trump, however, claims he’s actively turning away A-listers in order to bring the Inauguration back to “the people.” Whatever the case may be, Trump may want to look to the Osmonds for some inaugural entertainment.

Donny and Marie haven’t been asked yet, Marie Osmond says. The duo has played at multiple inaugural ceremonies including Ronald Reagan’s in 1981.

“I think when it comes to our country we need to unite,” Marie told Yahoo Finance in a recent interview. “I think we should all support our president whether we’re happy or sad. This is America.”

Marie Osmond, the mother of eight children, says her kids fall over the political spectrum and that she would never want them to feel a divide based on political preference. “We should come together and I think an Inauguration should be a time to unite, it really should,” she said.

The Reagan Tax Cuts Worked

Thanks to "bracket creep," the inflation of the 1970s pushed millions of taxpayers into higher tax brackets even though their inflation-adjusted incomes were not rising. To help offset this tax increase and also to improve incentives to work, save, and invest, President Reagan proposed sweeping tax rate reductions during the 1980s. What happened? Total tax revenues climbed by 99.4 percent during the 1980s, and the results are even more impressive when looking at what happened to personal income tax revenues. Once the economy received an unambiguous tax cut in January 1983, income tax revenues climbed dramatically, increasing by more than 54 percent by 1989 (28 percent after adjusting for inflation).
