JCT: Rangel Tax Bill Hits Almost All Americans

BY

House Ways and Means Republicans are releasing a new study today by the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT), an analysis arm of Congress. They find that Rep. Charlie Rangel’s "Mother of All Tax Hikes" plan will raise taxes on Americans at almost every income level. The bill hits working and middle class households, and puts the lie to Rangel’s “tax the wealthy” rhetoric.

Key Vote YES on Free Trade with Peru

On behalf of our 850,000 FreedomWorks members and supporters nationwide, I write to urge you to support the free trade agreement with Peru. The agreement would reduce tariffs for 80% of United States consumer and industrial exports to Peru and would phase out the remaining tariffs in the next ten years.

Oregon Nixes Tobacco Tax Hike For Children's Health Care

BY Jeff Mapes

A record amount of advertising underwritten by the tobacco industry overwhelmed supporters of expanding health coverage to children in Oregon Tuesday, as voters rejected an 84.5-cent-a-pack increase in cigarette taxes. The resounding defeat for the tobacco tax -- which lost 60-40 percent -- in a predominantly Democratic state is a boost for an industry that is pressing Republicans to hang firm in the congressional debate over the State Children's Health Insurance Program. Democratic attempts to expand SCHIP are funded with a proposed 61-cent-per-pack increase in the federal cigarette tax, which would bring the federal tax total to $1 per pack. "You'll be hearing about it everywhere," predicted Stanton Glantz, director of the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education at the University of California, San Francisco, and a longtime foe of the tobacco companies.

Health plan gets burned after state's costliest race

BY Janie Har

After the most expensive political campaign in Oregon history, voters Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected a tobacco tax increase to pay for children's health care. The 3-to-2 vote against Measure 50, which would have increased Oregon's cigarette tax by 85 cents a pack, follows similar defeats in California and Missouri after tobacco makers spent millions to oppose the measures. In Oregon, Reynolds American and Philip Morris, the makers of Camel and Marlboro cigarettes, spent a record $12 million, primarily on a TV commercial blitz.
