The Moral High Ground

Megan McArdle (yes, I've been reading the Atlantic today) lets the air out of the redistribution-is-charity balloon:

Ah, the New York Times

The good news is that a New York Times editorial lets us know that an OECD report says that, at 28.2% of GDP, the U.S. has one of the lowest total tax takes of any wealthy country. And they even admit that what growth we have seen in tax revenues since 2004 is "is due mostly to the spectacular increase in corporate profits." The bad news? That means the NYT editorial board thinks that it must mean that taxes are too low.

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.
