Senator Daschle Needs to Check Spending

Last week, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) announced that the estimated 10-year federal budget surplus would be $4 trillion lower than last year's estimate for the same time frame. While a $4 trillion difference is staggering indeed, this reversal of fortune should be a reminder of the precariousness of economic activity and the futility of 10-year projections.

Tom Daschle’s Lawsuit Abuse

America needs your help. Each year, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court issues a report titled, “Report on the Federal Judiciary.” Most Americans have never heard of it, let alone read it. That is understandable. While the Chief Justice is an honorable, wise, and consistent defender of the constitution, the report is usually pretty dry. This year, however, citizens who care about the constitution should take a close look at the Rehnquist report.

FROM 'HERO' TO 'ZERO,' TITLES DELUGE LEGISLATORS

BY ALAN BJERGA

WASHINGTON - Rep. Todd Tiahrt is a "Super Friend." Sen. Sam Brownback is a "Guardian of Small Business." Rep. Jim Ryun is a "Hero of the Taxpayer." These are only a few of the thousands of titles and awards that special interest groups shower on lawmakers each year to show their appreciation for the lawmakers' support.

Alabama CSE Helps to Stop a Property Tax Increase in Huntsville

Huntsville, AL - Since our inception, Citizens for a Sound Economy has been fighting for lower taxes, less government, and more freedom. Our motto has been "politics goes to those who show up." Whether it's on the national, state, or local level, citizen activism is the key factor that changes public policy. As a testament to these beliefs, Alabama CSE activated its membership base in the Huntsville area to fight against a proposed property tax increase, which would have affected those living in the Huntsville school system. The proposal called for an increase of 3-mill on top of a previously passed 5-mill property tax (the 5-mill equates to nearly $6 million a year for the Huntsville school system). With the help of Alabama CSE activists on the ground, the 3-mill levy was defeated. Our activists' message from the beginning was clear: Before Huntsville citizens are burdened with more taxes, the local school system needs to better utilize the funds that it already receives from taxpayers. As Alabama CSE activist Hugh McInnish stated in the Huntsville Times, "I believe that the people of Huntsville think the city schools have enough money if they operate efficiently." When the votes were tallied, Huntsville residents thought that the school district had enough revenue to operate: More than 60% of Huntsville voters, declined to support a new 3-mill levy on taxpayers.

Enron effect: loud, but not clear

BY Peter Grier

HIGHLIGHT: As lawmakers open hearings today, Enron boondoggle seems unlikely to catch fire as a big political scandal. BODY: Opening today in Washington: a drama with compelling charactersand moral overtones, but a plot so complex that only an attentive CPA may be able to follow it to the end. The show in question is the congressional Enron investigation, of course. Lawmakers are lifting the curtain on a series of hearings in which they plan to question firm officials and accountants about the energy firm's spectacular collapse.

The Time for Health Care Reform is Now

For the seventh consecutive year, it appears unlikely that a "Patients' Bill of Rights" will be signed into law. The main criticism of PBOR - as the bill is commonly referred to, in accordance with Washington, D.C.'s love for acronyms - is that it would raise the price of health insurance premiums to a level that would lead some employers to drop health coverage. With an estimated 44 million Americans already without health insurance, a new law to increase the ranks of the uninsured would be counterproductive.

Make the Bush Tax Cuts Permanent

For the first time in a generation, the American people received a significant tax cut when Congress passed the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Act of 2001. The tax cut reduces marginal tax rates at every level over a period of years and is intended to eliminate the Death Tax. The tax cut, in large part, reflects the proposal President Bush campaigned on, except in one critical respect --- the tax cut is not permanent. And fixing that problem is the single greatest fiscal step Congress could take to boost economic growth.

Grow Florida's Economy Not Florida's Government

The citizens of Florida have been hit hard by the current recession. Many people have lost jobs as business struggle to make ends meet. The Florida legislature should not compound the problem by backing a broad-based tax increase at a time when our economy is sluggish. Senator John McKay has made a proposal that would do just that - raise taxes! Worse, it seeks to shift the tax burden from tourists to the engine of Florida's economic growth : private enterprise.
