How Much is $1.6 Trillion?

Dr. Evil once held the world hostage for a staggering one hundred billion dollars.  This time Dr. Evil’s demands have been eclipsed by the Obama Administration (instead of Austin Powers), with cohorts Sen. Kennedy (D-MA) and Sen. Baucus (D-MT) demanding $1.6 trillion for a new diabolical plot: National Health Care. As the costs of health care reform begin to take shape, some of us are wondering how much $1.6 trillion really is. Putting things into perspective, $1.6 trillion would:

Democrats in legislature bet against history on tax hikes

BY Harry Esteve

SALEM -- Democrats have rolled the dice in a big way by approving more than $1 billion in tax increases in the waning weeks of the legislative session, gambling that Oregon has undergone a profound political change since the days of property tax limits and income tax rejections.The new taxes -- on upper earners, corporations, hospitals and gasoline -- help balance a shaky budget and offer an exit strategy that sends lawmakers home by July. But it could be a short vacation.

Cigarettes: The San Francisco Tax

A few months ago, on the way to the office, I witnessed a typically DC self-defeating scene.  A man riding on a mini-street sweeper finished the block, stopped to empty the trash in the back, and tossed his cigarette on the ground on his way back to the sweeper.  I was a bit galled - and it speaks to larger problems inherent in the system - but it never occurred to me to tax the cigarettes.  I was leaning more toward "why not take one more step and throw it in the trash" or "care about your job."

Stop Soda Tax for Government-Run Health Care

Whether you call it soda or pop, another tax scheme has just emerged from the House Ways and Means Committee to fund a massive government run health care scheme.  This time it’s a 10 cent tax on each can of soda.  That number sounds familiar because President Obama pledged as recently as February that no family earning less than $250,000 would see its taxes increased by “a single dime.

Putting Florida's Insurance on a Safer Course

With the hurricane season now underway, Florida’s insurance market is teetering on the brink of insolvency due to changes in insurance laws that have seen the nation’s large insurers leave the state, including State Farm, Allstate, Nationwide, USAA and others. Now, the state-run Citizens Insurance Property Corporation has moved from “insurer of last resort” to “insurer of first resort,” the largest insurer in the state with the riskiest portfolio. Should a major hurricane hit, or even a series of smaller hurricanes, the potential liabilities Citizens faces threaten the state’s finances and raise the specter of new costs for consumers, who will be assessed new “surcharges” on their insurance policies—including not just homeowners insurance, but automobile and other insurance polices as well.
