Not Everyone Supports S-CHIP

Nancy Pelosi has decided to force a vote on overturning Bush's S-CHIP veto this week.  I'm obviously not a huge fan of the White House position on the program, but Pelosi's vote should be seen for what it is: a cheap excuse for Democrats to lambaste Bush for "denying" children health care.  Pelosi doesn't have the votes she needs to overturn the veto, and she knows it, but that doesn't mean that various liberal groups, including labor unions and others, aren't trying to bully hold-out legislators into flipping.  The SEIU and an array of liberal organizations have launched a series of ads targeted against Republicans they believe to be weak on the issue.  This New York Times story on one their targets, Maryland Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, gives a cross-section of the Rep's district, and contains one fairly heartening passage:

Cook County Telecommunications Tax: A Whole Lot of Wrong Numbers

Every time I open my phone bill I am amazed at the new and innovative taxes and fees applied there by everyone from the federal government to local unincorporated hamlets: federal excise taxes, carrier universal service charge, city utility user fee, state and local taxes, gross receipts tax, and the making phone calls on days that end in “y” duty.

Get Ready to Oppose Real Estate Transfer Tax Increases in North Carolina

Early voting begins on October 18.   For those of you living in the counties listed below, when you go to the polls, you will be asked to vote on a proposed tax increase:  an increase of 200% in your county real estate transfer tax (home tax).  If passed, your real estate transfer tax will go from 0.2% to 0.6% of a home's sale price.  The additional tax means an additional $800.00 on a $200,000.00 home!

Key Vote 'NO' on the National Affordable Housing Trust Fund Act

On behalf of nearly 850,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I write to urge you to VOTE NO on H.R. 2895, the National Affordable Housing Trust Fund Act. This legislation would add layers of bureaucracy to a situation already bogged down in government regulations and mismanagement.

Clinton retirement plan rests on rich

BY Matt Stearns

Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., on Tuesday proposed a new multibillion-dollar retirement plan -- billed as a universal 401(k) plan with federal matching funds -- to supplement Social Security for middle-class workers. The accounts would cost the Treasury $20 billion to $25 billion a year, the second-most-expensive initiative Clinton has rolled out in her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. Her plan for universal health care would cost more than $100 billion a year. ''I am not proposing anything I don't have a way to pay for,'' she said.

Watching CNBC

BY An NRO Symposium

Another night, another debate. On Tuesday, the Republicans talked economics in Dearborn. National Review Online gathered a group — virtually — to weigh in. Here’s what they thought. Brian Darling Republicans have a long way to go to regain the trust of the American people, but the debate showed some hopeful signs of change and reform. Herewith, some thumbnail observations… Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney went after each other. That kind of feistiness will be needed in the general election.

White House: Opposition to S-CHIP Not About Spending

This is pretty depressing.  In this NPR interview, White House counselor defends Bush's S-CHIP veto, but completely gives up on spending as a rationale for opposition, even going so far as to say that Bush would be "more than happy" to expand the program beyond the $5 billion expansion he initially proposed, provided the program meets a few standards.  So much for fiscal conservatism.
