Sanford’s Down, Sarah’s Out, Franken's In; Is the Tea Party Over?

It’s been a strange and troubling few weeks for advocates of lower taxes and limited government. Nancy Pelosi successfully rammed what may be the largest tax hike in American history through the House of Representatives. Two rapidly rising stars in the GOP have unexpectedly tumbled back to Earth. And a federally-funded special interest power grab looms over the health care system.

Dissent, Not Denial: Informed Opposition to the Science of Climate Change Is Growing

Beneath the surface of a Cap and Tax debate that has only just begun to rage in this country, a basic premise is largely being taken for granted. Prominent fixtures of the political class, from Al Gore to Newt Gingrich to John McCain, have accepted and declared as fact that the Earth is getting warmer, the icecaps are getting smaller, carbon is to blame, and only government can save the day.

The First Rule of Budget Holes: Stop Digging

In a familiar storyline, Pennsylvania lawmakers are seeking to close a budget gap of some $3.2 billion by—you guessed it—raising taxes. To that end, Governor Ed Rendell has called for a “modest” hike of 16 percent in the state income tax rate from 3.07 to 3.57 percent for the next three years. Similar “temporary” tax hikes, implemented in 1983 and 1991, have yet to be fully repealed.

Unsettling Science in the Health Care Debate

Settled science rarely is. Except to those with a vested policy interest in the debate. True to form, a recent diatribe by Michael F. Jacobson of the Center for Science in the Public Interest acknowledges none of the widely available data that conflict with his passionate crusade against table salt. However, to a debate that has endured for decades, Jacobson does bring a modern twist:

Over 1,000 Attend Orange Tax Revolt Meeting

Over 1,000 attended an Orange Tax Revolt meeting on March 23.  The focus of the meeting was “What We Can Do.”  Numerous times throughout the meeting citizens chanted and waved signs stating “Tax Relief Now”!  Speakers Tom Whisnant and Joe Phelps encouraged the group to stay determined and explained the revaluation appeals process.  Attorney Cynthia Shriner explained the North Carolina statute regarding property tax revaluation.  The group was encouraged to appeal their revaluations and to contact the commissioners to ask that the new property tax values be rescinded and that new tax rate be set below revenue neutral.  Citizens were also encouraged to send letters to the editor of the local newspapers.The event drew local and national media attention with FOX news traveling from Atlanta.  Earlier in the day, the FOX team interviewed Orange County manager Laura Blackmon and Orange county citizen Ned Rigsbee.  Numerous local news stations and newspapers covered the event.
