Heat On Smokers

BY Bennett Hall

Supporters: Tobacco tax hike will pay for needed children’s health program Opponents: Measure would hijack state’s constitution Few ballot measures in Oregon history have generated as much sound and fury as Measure 50, the proposal to jack up the tobacco tax to finance a new children’s medical insurance program. Opponents — backed by big tobacco companies — have kicked in a record $9 million-plus to defeat the referendum, flooding the television airwaves with ads decrying the measure as an attempt to hijack the state’s constitution.

Milton Friedman's version of "I, Pencil"

Here's a 2-minute video of one of history's greatest economists explaining the basics of capitalism in a way that few people ever could...in plain English. The video is based on the classic economics essay, "I, Pencil", by Leonard Read, published in 1958.

Have GOP Failures Destroyed "True Conservatism?"

Ezra Klein says that we ought to ignore conservatives who respond to GOP failures by arguing that "true conservatism" (or libertarianism, if that's your thing) hasn't bee tried yet in the same way that we ignore Marxists who still defend it by saying that "true Marxism hasn't been tried yet."

George Will has a great Newsweek column that, taking after Bjorn Lomborg, suggests that global warming, far from being a disaster, might result in a net gain. The big one:

Bush's Veto Holds

As expected, Bush's veto on S-CHIP held, despite a Democrat-led attempt to overturn it and some last minute attempts by the bill's advocates to convince people that hey, it's not so bad after all.  I've been somewhat hard on the GOP on the issue, but, at least now that we're at this point, this deserves to be commended.  House Minority Whip Roy Blunt sent out a press release titled, "House sustains president's veto, now let's get to work on genuine solution." I'm not sure I'll be all that thrilled with whatever solution they end up choosing, but no doubt it will be better than what the Democrats tried to ram through here.

Who’s For S-CHIP? Everyone, Unfortunately.

BY Peter Suderman

Politicians and pundits are busy folks: They’ve got fundraisers, media appearances, speeches, cocktail parties, more fundraisers — it’s a lifestyle that doesn’t leave much room for actual policy research. Hence, the invention of talking points, collections of easy to remember points of argument passed around to Congressmen and their staff, as well as friendly third parties. I never saw the Democrats’ talking points on their planned expansion of S-CHIP, the program designed to fund health insurance for children in low-income families, but I imagine the list looked something like this:

Affordable Housing Fund Not So Affordable

David Broder wants President Bush to sign on to a bill that would create an Affordable Housing Trust Fund.  But well intentioned measures like this are rarely good ideas.  Government-sponsored housing doesn't have a particularly excellent track record.  FreedomWorks has noted this as a key vote, and provided a number of reasons why it's a bad idea.

Bush and the GOP Health-Care Strategy

I've got a piece in NRO today arguing that although Democrats are bad on S-CHIP, conservatives, at least those with a free-market bent, need to be willing to call out Bush for his position as well.  The Democrats have won this issue in part by painting Bush and the rest of the GOP as "against S-CHIP," but the truth is, the Republicans want to expand the program too.
