Oregon: Battle Against "Borrow and Spend"

When they’re not raising taxes, too often big-spending politicians are trying to sock future taxpayers with the tab for big increases in government borrowing. Last week, quick work by Oregon CSE helped derail a new borrowing plan that would have destabilized state finances.

A New Charge Against Fraud and Waste

With government spending up to $2.2 trillion a year, there’s more room than ever for waste, fraud, and abuse. Three cheers, then, for Representative Jim Nussle, who as Chairman of the House Budget Committee has launched a war to expose the rotten or unnecessary parts of the federal government.

This Week on Capitol Hill

Deficit Numbers On July 15th, the White House released the Mid-Year Budget Review of the U.S. Budget. The news that the budget deficit is spiking dramatically this year to $455 billion appeared to shock the Washington media, but it wasn't a surprise to CSE members who have watched the spending orgy of the past four years.

The Red Ink Capital

This week the White House budget office released the “Mid-Session Review” of the federal budget. As expected the new figures point to higher deficits. For fiscal year 2003, the deficit jumps from $304 billion to $455 billion. Federal spending now consumes $2.2 trillion dollars, and the budget report increases the estimate of 2003 spending by $71 billion. While a slow economy and the Iraqi war have much to do with the deficit, the report is indicative of a larger systemic problem—a lack of fiscal discipline and excessive federal spending.

From Pennsylvania With Love?

On Saturday July 19, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives passed a bill that will allow for the creation of eleven slot machine casinos across the state. Some casino hopefuls in the House estimate that the slot machines will draw roughly $1 billion dollars in revenues. But is $1 billion in state expansion what Pennsylvania really needs? Of course not. Pennsylvanians are in dire need for lawmakers to propose a budget that will cut spending and prevent tax increases that will protect the taxpayers’ economic freedom.

This Week on Capitol Hill

Official Washington is focused on equatorial Africa this week, but we'll try to avoid making banana republic references to America's current fiscal management. The latest installment of the U.S. fiscal meltdown is the new "Supplemental Appropriation" heading towards quick adoption by the Senate this week. The bill is already more than $2 billion in new spending that is not budgeted. It is not clear how this new spending squares with the President's public commitment to only 4 percent growth in discretionary spending this year.

Can Spending Commissions Succeed Where Politicians Fail?

Despite widespread anger at high taxes and bloated government spending, cutting government programs continues to be a near-impossible political task. Why can’t the political system transfer broad popular support for cutting wasteful spending into real action?
