White House to Make Farm Bill Proposal This Week

BY

In 1995/1996, the new Republican Congress passed a sweeping farm bill known as "Freedom to Farm," which dramatically reformed the nation's outdated and heavy-handed agricultural subsidy programs. The main concept behind Freedom to Farm was to get the federal government out of the business of setting prices and mandating production. Instead, U.S. taxpayers would provide some income support for farmers in bad years. Regrettably, these historic reforms were mostly gutted in 2002, and Uncle Sam has returned to Soviet-style management of many commodity markets.

Jim Webb's Crazy Economy

Hopefully, most Americans missed Sen. Jim Webb’s (D – Va.) response to the President’s State of the Union late Tuesday night. In large part, Sen. Webb’s speech was an angry call to more “fairly share” the nation’s resources. It was a disturbing return to class warfare and the politics of envy and greed. Just as troubling was Jim Webb’s zero-sum worldview and his misunderstanding of the national economy. Here is a reality check on Sen. Webb’s points:

Support Gov. Douglas' call to cap spending at inflation plus population growth

Governor Jim Douglas presented his budget to the legislature yesterday, calling for a cap on spending at inflation plus population growth and an end to “waterfall expenditures” – using excess tax revenues to fuel more spending – as part of the General Fund. These provisions are the core of Taxpayer Bill of Rights legislation, or what we’ve been calling SOS-Vermont.

Bush Proposes That Next President Balance the Budget

BY

After presiding over one of the largest spending sprees in American history-- including the creation of a multi-trillion dollar new unfunded Medicare prescription drug entitlement-- the Bush Administration is now proposing a balanced budget by 2012. I'm checking my calendar here-- yes, that's 2012, the last year of the next President's first term. It's like a bad headline straight from TheOnion.com. First, a lesson in economics. Unless you are a liberal looking for an excuse to raise taxes, the current budget deficit doesn't really matter.

Global Warming Based on Science?

The following article was originally published by Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs Is Global Warming Talk Based on Science? By David Deming, Ph.D. I recently read an editorial column in an Oklahoma newspaper alleging that Senator Inhofe is "not the leader we deserve" because he refuses to toe the party line on global warming. That's funny. I thought that the ability to think independently was the very definition of leadership. Senator Inhofe is a skeptic on global warming because he knows the science.

Rep. Sali: Democrat Energy Proposal Would Hit Idahoans Hard at the Pump

BY

One of the new Members of Congress, Idaho's Rep. Bill Sali, clearly understands the economics underpinning the Democrats' energy bill passed in the House this week. Rep. Sali noted in a release tonight that policy ideas like raising taxes "would only further de-energize America and cost consumers more for the gas they need." Rep. Sali further commented on the bill: "This legislation increases taxes by $7.7 billion in tax hikes over a ten-year period, costs which will be passed directly to people who put gas in their cars-- namely, just about everyone.
