Maine Freedom Agenda Update

The Hot Stove League met in Bangor, Maine on Saturday February 21st to discuss important economic policy issues. These meetings include state legislators and business leaders in the city, and they occur three or four times during the legislative session. The league tackled the budget deficit, tax reform, and health care. Health care dominated the discussion because 25 percent of Mainers are covered by Medicare. (Bangor Daily News, 2/23/04) Business leaders and Republican legislators discussed ways to curtail the program’s growth, but others at the meeting pointed out that neither Governor John Baldacci nor the Democrat controlled legislature were likely to reduce eligibility this session.

Spending is out of control, but the President and some leaders in Congress are committed to putting America's fiscal house back in order.

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

BY Alexis Simendinger, David Baumann, Carl M. Cannon, and John Maggs

"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.
