Real Do-Gooders

This piece originally appeared in the Washington Times on Oct. 1, 2006.  If you wanted to become really rich, yet at the same time help your fellow man, what would you do? There is no contradiction. The answer is -- start a business -- where you provide employment to others and also provide a new or improved good or service, or an existing good or service at a lower price.

High-minded regulations cost us all

BY Paul Burks

America's Founding Fathers were skeptical of power concentrated in the hands of a few, including those who would place restrictions on commerce. Though those patriotic men would have been disappointed to see the power that central authorities have amassed today, they would not have been surprised. Government's innumerable interferences in commerce would be all too familiar to them. In 2005, there were 3,943 new regulations at the federal level. The Federal Register, which tracks regulatory activity, weighed in at 23,041 pages.

Impact on Measure 41 State Agencies is At Core of Debate

BY Steve Law

Keizer conservative Russ Walker calls Measure 41 a "tax cut for the little guy." Silverton progressive Chuck Sheketoff calls the initiative, one of 10 on Oregon's Nov. 7 ballot, "fool's gold." Measure 41 supporters say it's a perfect time to cut state income taxes because Oregon's rebounding economy is causing state coffers to overflow with surplus cash. Measure 41 critics say it's a horrible time to cut taxes because schools, state police and other state services are limping from recession-induced cuts earlier in the decade.

Oregon tax cut called break for 'little guy,' threat to services

BY Brad Cain (AP)

To its backers, Measure 41 is a tax break aimed at helping "the little guy" and Oregon's middle-class families. Promoted by the Washington, D.C.-based group FreedomWorks, Measure 41 would reduce state income taxes for most households by about $140 a person by giving Oregonians the option to take the same personal income tax deduction as on their federal return.

NCLB Under Fire

BY Beth Parent

Former and current teachers joined members of the progressive party Thursday afternoon to express their dismay over the federal No Child Left Behind law -- requiring schools to test students each year to make sure adequate progress is being made. "A terrible waste of instructional and student time," said Larry Carbonetti, a former teacher in Southern Vermont. Teachers claim they spend more time teaching students how to take the standardized test -- instead of teaching the curriculum.

Presidents Speak Against Measures 41 and 48

BY Sascha Krader

President Daniel Bernstine and Portland Community College's President Preston Pulliams took vacation time on Monday, the first day of the fall term, to campaign against two November ballot measures they say could devastate Oregon's public universities. In a press conference in PSU's Smith Memorial Student Union, the presidents said that Ballot Measures 41 and 48 would damage an already under-funded higher educational system.

It's Your Money, but It's Also Your State

BY Editorial

To Oregon schools, state police and other services Measure 41 is an invitation to help yourself. Cut your taxes, keep more of your money, and don't worry about the schools, universities, senior services, health care and public safety programs that make up 90 percent of the state's budget. They'll be fine, the proponents say. Just fine.

OMB Chief Urges Action On Revised Line-Item Veto Bill

BY David Hess

Using a springboard provided by a group of anti-spendthrifts, OMB Director Portman reiterated the Bush administration's plea today for action this year on a stalled bill to help slam the brakes on earmarks and pork projects in appropriations bills. In a briefing at the National Press Club, Portman said he was confident that the Senate would pass a revamped version of the presidential line-item veto if it could be sprung to the floor. But he acknowledged that backroom "holds" on the bill had slowed its progress and perhaps endangered its passage before Congress adjourns for this year. President Bush issued a strong endorsement Tuesday of the legislation, which has passed the House by a comfortable margin with bipartisan support. An earlier version of such legislation was enacted in the late 1990s and helped former President Clinton strike about $2 billion worth of questionable projects from spending bills, but the law later was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court as an executive incursion on Congress' power of the purse.

OMB Chief Urges Action on Revised Line-Item Veto Bill

BY David Hess

Using a springboard provided by a group of anti-spendthrifts, Office of Management and Budget Director Rob Portman reiterated the Bush administration's plea Wednesday for action this year on a stalled bill to help slam the brakes on earmarks and pork projects in appropriations bills. In a briefing at the National Press Club, Portman said he was confident that the Senate would pass a revamped version of the presidential line-item veto if it could be sprung to the floor. But he acknowledged that there is "more legislation than time" left in this session.
