Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Stephen Moore, a visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation and co-author of "Trumponomics: Inside the America First Plan to Revive Our Economy," He talks about his experience working with Donald Trump and how he advised President Trump on taxes and other issues. Stephen discusses his feelings on a flat tax and why he thinks a fixed rate income tax would be the fairest tax system. He also says that the people most against the flat tax are not liberals, but special interest groups in Washington D.C who are always lobbying for loopholes in the tax code. “If you really want to drain the swamp, go to a flat tax.” Stephen also shares many metrics that mainstream media overlooks about how well the economy is doing under Trump. Specifically how we are experiencing historic lows in unemployment, interest rates, and inflation as well as historic gains in wages. He also discusses his first hand accounts of Trump’s negotiation skills and how he used them for the tax cuts and job act. Stephen also talks about his experience being nominated to be on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and why he withdrew his nomination. He also talks about the current push for democratic socialism and the forgotten lessons about socialism from the 20th century. He finishes by discussing what he feels is a new cold war with China and why he feels the US will continue to be the main economic superpower for some time to come.
