Hostility to Markets?

Governor Steals From the Poor to Pad State Budget With Unconstitutional Tax

Well, it seems that the old mantra of “tax and spend” lives on in Colorado. Democrat Governor Bill Ritter, who pushed a $1.7 billion tax increase in 2007, has decided to freeze property taxes in Colorado rather than lowering them as planned. This is tantamount to raising taxes up to $3.8 billion over the next 10 years. The debate rages strongly as of January 2008, when legislative sessions commenced. As if that weren’t enough, the Colorado state Constitution clearly states that any tax increase must go to a vote by the people. But this tax scheme has not gone to the people for a vote. Republican Senate and House members had fought against Ritter’s initial tax, and now are rightly upset at the latest news. "It's modern-day bank robbery," Rep. Cory Gardner, a Yuma Republican stated.

Summer Windfall

Every year, it's the same old story: Summertime rolls around, the weather gets hot, people start driving, gas prices go up, and Congress starts expressing Grave and Serious Concern about price gouging and oil company profits.  Of course, even in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, an FTC investigation produced no evidence of any gouging.

Net Neutrality Does Not Protect Free Speech

The net neutrality debate has been rife with scare-mongering from the start, but the latest suggestion from the ACLU -- that net neutrality is a necessary component of free speech -- continues to annoy me: Speakers at an American Civil Liberties Union conference today praised legislation that would ban discrimination of Internet content by broadband companies, saying that firms like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon Communications -- not the government -- pose the greatest threat to free speech and expres

The Lieberman-Warner global warming debated in the Senate last week went nowhere: Democratic leadership will yank it from the floor.  Why?

No Fee For Thee

Looks like the FCC is set to hold a hearing regarding he potential for regulating early termination fees on wireless phones. Now, regulating cancellation fees certainly seems like a consumer-friendly move.
