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.

GOP Senators Push To Pass Spending Bill

BY Helen Dewar

Senate Republicans are cranking up pressure for swift passage of a long-overdue $328 billion government spending bill by warning wavering lawmakers that they could lose thousands of home-state projects and face a freeze on expenditures if they block passage of the measure.

Is Georgia Really Cutting Spending?

Data recently released in the National Governors Association’s Fiscal Survey of States shows that Georgia’s budget for this year is set to increase spending despite increased revenue from additional taxes and fees levied on its citizens. In 2003, expenditures were estimated at just over $16.1 billion, but plans for 2004 have them increasing $177 million to nearly $16.3 billion. This is an increase in spending, despite rough economic times, additional federal bailout money, and roughly $400 million in tax and fee increases.

Heritage: Most New Spending Since 2001 Unrelated to the War on Terrorism

Executive Summary Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, Americans called on Washington to spend the resources necessary to fight terrorists abroad, protect the homeland, and rebuild New York City. Total federal spending has grown 16 percent since 2001. However, only 45 percent of all new federal spending since 2001 has been related to defense and the 9/11 attacks. The remaining 55 percent was spent on programs unrelated to the war on terrorism.

We Need a New Budget Process

Congress and the Administration are once again facing gigantic and growing deficits. There are many explanations, but unrestrained spending is the biggest. With the tallies in from the fiscal year ended September 30, spending grew by almost 9% last year and by 21% over the last two years. This is before you consider the supplemental for Iraq, the energy bill, the new entitlement for prescription drugs law, or the omnibus appropriations bill that is still being written and which Congress will consider December 8. Non-military discretionary spending, which the Administration had pledged to hold to 4% growth, actually rose 8.5% - or roughly four times as fast as inflation.

Terry Everett, an Alabama Republican born in Dothan, sliced $202,500 from the 2003 Omnibus Appropriations Act for the festival, which this year features a Spam-recipe contest.

Faux Foreign Exchange Signals

©2003 Copley News Service, 10/21/2003 Countries that anchor the value of their currencies to a larger, relatively stable currency, such as the dollar and the euro, are wrongly accused by many world leaders of "manipulating" their currencies. Leaders who pressure countries with fixed exchange rates to allow their currencies to float freely on foreign exchange (Forex) markets aren't considering the inherent limitations of currency markets, and they fail to appreciate the economic havoc floating exchange rates create.
