Democrats' Ire Fuels Race for Florida

BY Steve Miller

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - The Democratic Party headquarters in Palm Beach County is 700 square feet of flaming rhetoric and unapologetic anger. Nine months after the end of the Florida recount wars, the county's Democrats still nurse a combustible brand of vitriol that, as one party operative here says, "will eventually decide the 2004 presidential election." Newspaper reporters still write about the fallout. Radio talk-show callers still lament or celebrate it, depending on their ideology.

The Rise of the Shark

2001 may long be remembered as the year of the shark. No, I’m not talking about the carnivorous sort that has been terrifying swimmers along the Eastern shores of the United States. The shark I’m thinking of is trial lawyer-turned-Senator John Edwards of North Carolina.

Battle of 2016

BY Eric Laursen

WASHINGTON, D.C.--Generational warfare broke out last Wednesday morning on a scorching plaza in front of a posh Washington, D.C., hotel. As his buddies stood by him smiling in support, a young man in khakis and shades told a white-haired older woman, ''You obviously don't understand the capital markets.'' ''How much you want to bet you'll feel the same way six months from now, when the market really tanks?'' she shot back. ''It's a bet!'' came the reply, but neither extended a hand to shake.

House Tax Plan OK'd

BY Mark Johnson

Lawmakers in the N.C. House resolved weeks of financial wrangling Thursday and gave final approval to raising taxes by $700 million, only to find themselves confronting the same dispute they just settled. The House passed the tax package by a 62-56 vote, approving a 1/2-cent sales tax increase and a 1/2-percentage point increase in income tax on wealthier taxpayers. Before the vote was even cast, however, Rep. Mickey Michaux, D-Durham, reminded his colleagues that Senate leaders have already declared they will reject the tax plan.

Today, Social Security stands as one of the most popular – and expensive – government programs in American history.
