Hot on the right: Trump vs. Obama on dreamer immigration; lowering corporate taxes and paying for disasters

A roundup of editorials Thursday includes a comparison of Barack Obama and Donald Trump on an immigration program, why the corporate tax should be lowered and how to pay for emergency disasters. 

1. Obama was right the first time

From the Augusta Chronicle: “President Trump is doing the right thing, humanely: phasing out the illegal program over six months, while not deporting one soul in the program or in its pipeline.”

2. The corporate tax rate is too damn high

Washington Examiner: “The taxes fall on those who own those companies, on shareholders, on investors, employees, and customers. That is, the taxes that Apple pays, for example, mean lower prices for real people who own Apple shares, lower wages for people who work for Apple, and higher prices for people who buy Apple products.”

3. Sen. Rand Paul: Pay for the emergency funds with cuts from elsewhere

U.S. Sen. Randy Paul writes in The Hill: “Harvey isn’t the only emergency. Hurricane Irma has now hit the U.S. and looks like it might hit Florida this weekend, even stronger than Harvey. Others could still come. We must plan ahead, and we must pay for our needs.”
