Trump And Pence Condemn ‘Violence’ And ‘Hate’ At White Supremacist Rally In Charlottesville

Chuck Ross, The Daily Caller

President Trump, First Lady Melania Trump and Vice President Mike Pence issued statements on Saturday condemning the “hate” and “violence” that erupted at a rally of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va. earlier in the day.

“We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!” Trump said in a statement posted to Twitter.

Minutes earlier, Melania Trump issued a similar statement.

“Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let’s communicate w/o hate in our hearts. No good comes from violence,” she tweeted, adding the hashtag “#Charlottesville.”

The statements were criticized by some as being too vague and not directly calling out the white supremacists who organized the “Unite the Right” rally, which was held at Emancipation Park, formerly known as Lee Park.

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).
