Sowell on Pelosi

Thomas Sowell has a great article out about 'The Cast of Characters' of the Democratic party.  And a profile of what Nancy Pelosi has done in the House of Representatives.

Prop. 86 a Tax-the-Poor Scheme California Focus

BY MATT SCHUMSKY

If passed by the California electorate Nov. 7, Proposition 86 would almost quadruple the current tax on cigarettes to $3.47 a pack and would stand as perhaps the most ill-conceived tax increase of all time, although, to be fair, there's a lot of competition for that distinction. The "Tobacco Tax Act of 2006" is a creation of California's hospital industry, which wrote the initiative in such a way that it will receive about 40 percent of the $2.1 billion a year the higher tax is expected to generate. Whether that figure is realistic is a point we will get to a little later.

ELECTION 2006 ENDORSEMENTS EDITORIAL

BY Editorial

Under a banner of geographic diversity, backers of Measure 40 join a national parade to manipulate courts Oregon voters aren't the only ones being asked to restructure their courts this fall. Voters in at least four other states will decide on constitutional amendments to do the same. These ballot measures are part of a national movement to make judges easier to control and punish. Oregon's measure is one of the harder to stomach, because it comes under the false pretense of encouraging diversity.

Prop. 86 a tax-the-poor scheme California focus

Matt Schumsky, a FreedomWorks field coordinator for California , had a great op-ed run in the  OC Register. If passed by the California electorate Nov. 7, Proposition 86 would almost quadruple the current tax on cigarettes to $3.47 a pack and would stand as perhaps the most ill-conceived tax increase of all time, although, to be fair, there's a lot of competition for that distinction. The "Tobacco Tax Act of 2006" is a creation of California's hospital industry, which wrote the initiative in such a way that it will receive about 40 percent of the $2.1 billion a year the higher tax is expected to generate.

For many voters, final decision a matter of trust

BY Matt Cooper and David Steves

One of the old saws about politicians goes like this: "Question: How do you know when a politician is lying?" "Answer: His lips are moving." Voter trust - or lack thereof - is a recurring backdrop for many local and state ballot measures in the Nov. 7 general election.

Spending-limit campaigns spend time, money on ballot battle

BY BRAD CAIN

A coalition representing unions, education boosters and business groups is launching a get-out-the-vote effort to persuade Oregonians to reject measures on the Nov. 7 ballot to limit state spending and reduce state income taxes. Organizers say the effort against the Measure 48 spending limit and the Measure 41 tax cut features activists going door-to-door and working phone banks, urging opposition to measures they say would damage state services and "move Oregon backward."

Press Release

GDP Falls, the Left Attacks?

This piece originally appeared in the National Review Online. The Commerce Department reported today that real economic growth declined from 2.6 percent in the second quarter to 1.6 percent in the third quarter of 2006. The Democrats and the mainstream media will no doubt say this is firm evidence that President Bush’s tax-cutting policies are starting to fail and that it’s time for a new policy direction. Critics also might blame the Federal Reserve for waiting too long to end its cycle of interest-rate hikes.

Oregon spending limit draws out of state money

BY AP

Out-of-state groups associated with libertarian Howard Rich have spent more than $1 million to persuade voters to clamp a tough spending limit on government in Oregon, new spending reports show. Measure 48’s opponents, meanwhile, have raised twice that much to defeat the spending limit, much of it from some of Oregon’s largest unions, the reports showed. Among the other nine measures on the Nov. 7 ballot, the spendiest continues to be Measure 42, which would bar the use of credit ratings to set insurance rates.

American Capital Markets Falling Behind

BY

Thanks in large part to policy mismanagement by a shockingly illiterate Congress, American financial markets are losing their edge to global competitors.  U.S. tax policy is increasingly complicated, unstable, and short-term (our capital gains and dividend rates change every two years, for example).  America's tax policy is a disgraceful, corrupt mess that specifically punishes U.S. companies that have operations overseas.
