OMB Chief Urges Action on Revised Line-Item Veto Bill

BY David Hess

Using a springboard provided by a group of anti-spendthrifts, Office of Management and Budget Director Rob Portman reiterated the Bush administration's plea Wednesday for action this year on a stalled bill to help slam the brakes on earmarks and pork projects in appropriations bills. In a briefing at the National Press Club, Portman said he was confident that the Senate would pass a revamped version of the presidential line-item veto if it could be sprung to the floor. But he acknowledged that there is "more legislation than time" left in this session.

Kaiser Foundation: Health Care Costs Growing Twice as Fast as Wages

BY

The Kaiser Family Foundation is reporting that employer-provided health care costs rose 7.7 percent in 2006, far outstripping the corresponding growth in wages.  The result: additional pressure on American workers.  Although the growth in costs is slightly slower that than 2005, it still is an unsustainable level of growth over the long-term.  Congress urgently needs to address the structural problems with the U.S.

Cynical Hill: House Lets Majority Vote for Property Rights Bill Without Actually Passing It

BY

Rep. Steve Chabot's Property Rights protection bill would give citizens greater access to federal courts in situations where states are abusing eminent domain powers to seize private property. It's badly needed protection in the wake of last year's disastrous Kelo decision. However, today the House considered the bill under "suspension of the rules," which requires a 2/3 vote to pass legislation, and the bill gathered only a 234-174 majority.

Tons of Fruit Rots in American Farm Fields

BY

The New York Times has a good look at the economic consequences occuring today because we lack a good temporary worker program. There are people who just want to come here and contribute and return home; Congress should be able to accomodate this win-win situation with a temporary worker program that does not compromise our security or give people amnesty.
