Addressing Social Security

“Reforming Social Security is almost certain to figure prominently in President Bush’s reelection campaign next year,” reports Peter Savodnik in a recent issue of The Hill newspaper. President Bush supports saving Social Security with personal retirement accounts, where workers would own a portion of their retirement contributions, and promises to those in or near retirement would be kept. Democratic candidates haven’t been as forthcoming with solutions. When CSE’s New Hampshire State Director Chuck McGee recently pressed Democratic candidate John Edwards to take a stand on the issue Edwards replied, “I do not believe in private security accounts,” but offered no alternative.

This Week on Capitol Hill

Deficit Numbers On July 15th, the White House released the Mid-Year Budget Review of the U.S. Budget. The news that the budget deficit is spiking dramatically this year to $455 billion appeared to shock the Washington media, but it wasn't a surprise to CSE members who have watched the spending orgy of the past four years.

A Sales Tax in Oregon?

Some state legislators in Oregon are suggesting the state adopt a sales tax that will further harm an already crippled local economy. The tax would burden state citizens with an estimated $725 million in new taxes, reducing the state’s competitive edge and devastating border communities. Moreover, according to the Cascade Policy Institute, 30,000 jobs throughout the state could be lost.

Texas: Select School Finance Committee Taking Final Form

House Speaker Tom Craddick Monday added six House members to the Select Committee on Public School Finance and announced the creation of eight subcommittees to study various aspects of the state tax system and the school finance mechanisms. The committee, which is meeting here Tuesday and Wednesday, is studying the state’s tax structure and its public school finance system with a goal of completely revamping the state’s tax code and its method of funding schools, Craddick said Monday.

The Red Ink Capital

This week the White House budget office released the “Mid-Session Review” of the federal budget. As expected the new figures point to higher deficits. For fiscal year 2003, the deficit jumps from $304 billion to $455 billion. Federal spending now consumes $2.2 trillion dollars, and the budget report increases the estimate of 2003 spending by $71 billion. While a slow economy and the Iraqi war have much to do with the deficit, the report is indicative of a larger systemic problem—a lack of fiscal discipline and excessive federal spending.

Social Security’s Coming Crisis

The actuaries and trustees at the Social Security Administration have long understood the challenges facing our Social Security program. With the impending retirement of the large baby boom generation starting around 2012, there will be a shift in the proportion of workers paying into Social Security to the retirees drawing benefits. As a result, there won’t be enough money as benefits going out will exceed taxes coming in by 2015. I met with White House staff and Political Director Karl Rove to encourage presidential leadership to deal with the coming crisis. There is an even greater need to face up to the Social Security problem now with the probability of more money needed a very expensive prescription drug benefit added to Medicare.
