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.

Petitioners file suit to block new initiative law

BY Dave Hogan

A group of chief petitioners is asking a Marion County judge to block a new initiative law from taking effect next month, saying it places unconstitutional limits on political expression. The Oregon Legislature approved the new law, House Bill 2082, this year. It makes a number of changes in the initiative process, including adding requirements for signature-gatherers to register with the Secretary of State's office and undergo training.

Oregon's kicker is a hallmark worth protecting

BY Russ Walker

Children across Oregon will wake up on Christmas morning this year to find an extra book in their stocking and an unexpected game under the tree. Recent college graduates, struggling to make ends meet in their new jobs while paying off student loans, will be able to pay down some credit card debt instead of adding to it. Some families who normally would only be able to afford a small turkey for their holiday dinner can splurge and treat themselves to a ham.

Cautionary Tale of Congestion Pricing

BY Dr. Wayne Brough

With Christmas and winter weather fast approaching, most Americans are anticipating a holiday with friends and family. Many, however, are also bracing for the inevitable travel crush. It's peak season, and for air travelers, fears of delay and cancelations are none too real. So much so that President Bush and Transportation Secretary Mary Peters pre-emptively announced new plans to ease congestion. Barring inclement weather, these measures should keep passengers moving and ease the burden at the nation's busiest airports.

Politicians are like diapers. They both need changing regularly and for the same reason

I think as the times goes by I just become more and more sarcastic when it comes to politics. I used to believe that there was a significant difference in the impact on the economy between a "pro-business" party and an "anti-business" one, but as the results show it is not necessarily the case. Even the most astute business leaders seem to lose their way rapidly when put in a public role. There are certainly exceptions but they are few and far in between... Now even Hank Paulson has lost his way? Mortgage freeze as a solution to the sub prime fiasco problem? Heh? I think we need another diaper here...

Bail out homeowners? Homeowners should pay price for their own errors

BY Eric Bourgeois

A new survey by FreedomWorks, based in Washington, D.C., found that the majority of Americans oppose a mortgage bailout for subprime borrowers. I concur. I don't feel the government should bail out homeowners who made bad decisions regarding the interest rates on their mortgage or whether the homes they were buying were too expensive for them in the first place. The bottom line is that all that they are really losing is a house they can't afford. What is wrong with that? It sounds — well — reasonable.
