A March to Remember

©2004 Copley News Service, 2/17/2004 February is Black History Month primarily because Abraham Lincoln's birthday is Feb. 12. Unfortunately, the political party he helped to found has lost its historical recognition as the Party of Civil Rights. As I've said previously: The Democratic Party had a terrible history and overcame it; the Republican Party had a great history and turned aside.

CSE Urges Congress to Avert Fiscal "Train Wreck" on Transportation Bill

Over the past two years, the federal government has been on an unprecedented spending spree, running up trillions of dollars in new deficit spending and future entitlement liabilities. Thanks in part to pressure from grassroots activists concerned about America’s long-term financial health, President Bush and true fiscal conservatives in Congress are preparing to slow the runaway spending train. Their target: the massively bloated and wasteful Transportation reauthorization bill being debated in Congress this week.

Sky High

"You never know which mode of governance you'll see from Bush," said Republican Stephen Moore, president of the political action committee Club for Growth, as he mused about the president's $2.4 trillion budget blueprint for fiscal 2005 and the potential for a second term. Some of President Bush's recent actions, including his signing of the omnibus appropriations bill for fiscal 2004 (rife with what some Republicans perceive as wasteful spending), plus revelations about the actual growth in government spending under Bush, and his fanfare about sending astronauts to Mars, are sparking criticism of the president's fiscal stewardship. "Republicans are spending more money than Tip O'Neill ever did," said Moore, referring to the late Democratic House speaker of the Reagan era. "All those things have really hurt Bush in the polls," Moore added. And on top of that, this year's deficit forecast has reached $521 billion.

Responsible Spending is the Missing Ingredient

While Congress was struggling to pass an $820 billion spending bill, President Bush was preparing to deliver the State of Union. Bush outlined a plan for bolstering the economy that builds on earlier tax cuts while addressing other weaknesses in the economy. Congress, meanwhile, just passed a spending bill that boosts discretionary spending by 9 percent, according to Brian Reidl of the Heritage Foundation. At some point, the propensity of Washington to spend must be reconciled with talk of economic reform. If the president is serious about economic growth, government spending must be contained.

Bush to propose spending freeze

BY Joseph Curl

President Bush will propose an increase of less than 1 percent for federal programs not related to defense or homeland security, effectively freezing discretionary spending in the next budget, after coming under fire from conservatives to control runaway spending. But the president will propose increasing governmentwide homeland security funding by 9.7 percent in the fiscal 2005 budget, and the military budget is expected to increase by a small amount.

Dangers Of Embarrassing The Grassroots

BY Paul M. Weyrich

I expected to have to do a media event complaining about some of Richard Nixon’s compromises near the end of his tenure in office. After all, he wasn’t one of us. And I expected to do a media event decrying Gerald Ford’s cave-in to the liberal Congress on eleven different issues since taking over from Richard Nixon. After all, he wasn’t one of us. And I certainly knew I would have to do a media event when Jimmy Carter gave away the Panama Canal (and the liberal leadership in the Senate was helping him). After all, none of them was one of us.

Egypt On the Economic Cusp

©2004 Copley News Service, 1/20/2004 I just returned from a remarkable conference in Cairo, Egypt, put on jointly by the Egyptian Center for Economic Studies and Instituto Libertad y Democracia. ILD is led by Peruvian economist and Empower America associate Hernando de Soto, whose two books, "The Mystery of Capital" and "The Other Path," are seminal works for understanding and solving world poverty and terrorism in the 21st century.

CSE Key Votes Against Bloated Omnibus

On behalf of the more than 300,000 members of Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE), CSE urged the Senate to vote NO on the FY 2004 Omnibus Appropriations bill. This bloated spending measure represents a huge blow to fiscal responsibility and to the principle of limited government. According to the Heritage Foundation, the omnibus will increase discretionary spending by nine percent, pushing it to $900 billion dollars.
