Friends in High Places

This may be the do-nothing Congress, but Democratic control of both houses has certainly accomplished one thing: helping out traditional Democratic allies.

The Democrats' Broken Promises

Over at the Club for Growth, Andrew Roth has a good roundup of conservative legislators calling for the President to veto the omnibus.  It's worth reading them all, but one good point that Sen. DeMint makes is that the bill very clearly fails to fulfill the Democrats' early promise to cut the number of earmarks in half:

The Ominous Omnibus

Last night, the House, as expected, passed the earmark-laden omnibus.  The bill now heads off to the Senate, where, after the addition of about $70 billion in troop funding, it's expected to pass.  The President, whom some had hoped might issue a veto threat over the bill's earmarks and grossly irresponsible spending measures, has indicated that it will most likely sign the bill.

Key Vote "No" on FY 2008 Omnibus Spending Bill

On behalf of more than 830,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I write to urge you to vote “No” on the bloated Fiscal Year 2008 Omnibus Appropriations bill. This huge spending measure is packed with policy riders, earmarks and budget gimmicks that add billions of dollars in spending to an already gigantic U.S. budget.

More Mortgage Madness

It's been noted that one of the reasons the mortgage industry decided to play along with Bush's "voluntary" rate-freeze plan for mortgages is that they hoped to shield themselves from further regulation. That may be true in the short term, but that doesn't mean that liberal legislators aren't still going to come after the industry. As an old boss used to say: "You can't get rid of the crocodile by feeding him your leg." There's no appeasing these people. And, like clockwork, here come Sens.

Rubio pushes 1.35% tax solution

BY Michael Braga

Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio has joined a coalition of tax revolt groups from across the state in calling for residents to sign a petition for a November 2008 ballot amendment that promises to cut property taxes by an average of 25 percent. The plan, endorsed by groups including Manatee County's Coalition Against Runaway Taxes, or CART, would set tax rates for all Florida businesses and residents at 1.35 percent of a property's taxable value. Savings for businesses and residents would differ depending on where a property is and when it was purchased.

Stealing Harvard

If Harvard has a $35 billion endowment, why should anyone pay $45,600/year to attend? There's lots of reasons, I'm sure, including supply and demand, prestige and the like. But it's comforting to know that it's mostly the government's fault. Check out this great article at the WSJ.

Sick of SCHIP Yet?

With little fanfare, President Bush vetoed the dreaded SCHIP for the second time last night. The Washington Times has the full story here. Bush’s comments are pretty much right on - SCHIP puts too many adults and people who can afford their own insurance on the government rolls.
