  • Tax Policy, Coolidge Style
    Tax policy is a hot item in the news these days. In his State of the Union address President Obama laid out several changes he’d like to make to the tax code. Republicans also have their own plans to revitalize the tax code. Regardless, there’s much optimism in the air around the possibility that tax reform could be an area of compromise this year.
  • Remembering Coolidge’s First State of the Union Address
    On January 20th President Barack Obama will address a joint session of Congress and the American people on the State of the Union. This report on the health of our nation is actually mandated by Article II, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution: “He shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.” From the founding of the United States through the William Howard Taft Administration this message was delivered in writing to Congress, but in 1913 President Woodrow Wilson, citing his desire for a more active, visible presidency, delivered the address in person to Congress.
