The Medicare Morass: Many seniors upset about changes to federal program

BY DAVID BATES

Alan Meyer followed news reports, wrote letters to newspapers and made sure that Sens. Ron Wyden, Gordon Smith and Rep. David Wu all knew what he thought of the Medicare legislation Oregon's congressional delegation was about to vote on. Then, after lawmakers approved the Medicare bill the week before Thanksgiving and President Bush signed it Monday, the Newberg retiree threw up his arms. Then he threw out his AARP membership card, angry that the nation's largest lobbying group for the elderly had endorsed the package.

Heritage: Most New Spending Since 2001 Unrelated to the War on Terrorism

Executive Summary Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, Americans called on Washington to spend the resources necessary to fight terrorists abroad, protect the homeland, and rebuild New York City. Total federal spending has grown 16 percent since 2001. However, only 45 percent of all new federal spending since 2001 has been related to defense and the 9/11 attacks. The remaining 55 percent was spent on programs unrelated to the war on terrorism.

Washington's Fiscal Fiasco

This just in from Washington, federal spending is out of control and budget deficits, once a dirty word in Washington, have come roaring back into fashion. Red ink is spilling out of the nation’s capital at an unprecedented rate and both Congress and the White House are to blame. Fiscal discipline has all but disappeared as real spending by the federal government has increased by $404 billion since 1998 and the federal government spends $21,000 per household, an increase from $16,000 in 1998. While tax relief has been a welcome sign, President Bush and Congress have forgotten the limited government envisioned by our Founding Fathers must be achieved through both low taxes and limited spending.

Sides gear up for tax-increase vote

BY PETER WONG

Gov. Ted Kulongoski said Thursday that he will speak out for the budget-balancing tax increases that the Legislature approved to support schools and state services. He also said he won’t go it alone in the coming campaign. “Everybody knows this is not going to be won or lost on one single individual,” Kulongoski said on the day that advocates in the Our Oregon Coalition began their campaign in favor of Measure 30.

I just finished a forty minute interview on WGNU-St. Louis, DriveTime Live with Susan Smith-Harmon and Nick Kasoff. We talked about the Medicare bill and they gave me plenty of opportunities to talk about the need to bring market forces to bear on the provision of health care. There were several phone calls.

Tax foes collect $610,000 for measure

BY Steve Law

Tapping a broad range of in-state donors, critics of the state Legislature’s $1.2 billion tax increase raised $610,000 to gather signatures and put the measure on the Feb. 3 ballot. Campaign-finance reports filed Wednesday show that anti-tax forces collected more than 1,400 small donations of $50 or more. Campaign leader Russ Walker said he also collected several checks of more than $50,000 from wealthy business owners.
