Congress Must Make Difficult Choices

Dear Editor: In this morning’s piece, A lonely voice in Congress, you are correct that Congress must address unpopular realities and make very difficult choices. This Congress is on a spending spree – from $400 billion for Medicare to the projected $820 billion omnibus appropriations package recently passed by the House. I applaud Wisconsin’s delegation for voting against the budget package.

NH CSE Supports the Taxpayer's Bill of Rights

Rejecting tradition and writing its own maps in 2002, the NH Supreme Court did more than just “redistrict” our State House political boundaries. In effect, the court saw fit to provide perpetual incumbency and remove from the voting public any real sense of accountability over State House officials.

Agency chiefs map possible cuts

BY Steve Law

The state might cut a wide range of programs and services if voters reject a $1.2 billion tax package next month. State agency administrators outlined the potential cuts this week in contingency plans they submitted in case Measure 30 is defeated Feb. 3. At stake is nearly 10 percent of the state’s general fund and other discretionary revenue for the remainder of the 2003-05 budget cycle. That was after several rounds of budget-cutting through five special legislative sessions in 2002 and last year’s marathon regular session. Potential reductions include:

Ballots are scheduled to be mailed Jan. 16-20 for the statewide vote on Measure 30. If voters overturn Measure 30, that would leave the state general fund and other discretionary funds at $11.05 billion for 2003-05. For 2001-03, the budget was $11.23 billion after a series of cuts.

Tax Revolt!

A tax revolt is sweeping the nation, but Democratic candidates for president have failed to notice. With first primaries of the 2004 election season just days away, they are still proposing tax hikes. While President Bush has put forth his fourth tax cut in four years, candidate Wesley Clark recently revealed a plan dredged from the Democratic sewer of bad ideas past, reeking of class warfare: he would raise taxes on the rich and cut taxes for the poor and middle class to make the system more “progressive” or rather, discriminatory. And, although the word “tax” only appears on one document on candidate Howard Dean’s web site, he has made his stance on taxes clear: he wants to repeal President Bush’s tax cuts, raising taxes on just about everyone with a job—from the Wall Street tycoon Clark would tax, to the person who shines his shoes.

Paving the Way for Broadband Communications

As Christmas quickly fades into last year, grateful recipients are learning how to use their new high-tech gifts, from wireless handheld PDAs to flat screen plasma televisions. Indeed, the array of products now available is staggering. Technology is truly pushing the frontiers of a wired nation. Unfortunately, regulators have a hard time keeping pace, and regulations created at a time when many of today’s products did not even exist continue to hinder access to these new technologies.

BOARD PRODDED ON ISSUE OF EARLY-PAY DISCOUNT

BY Wesley Young

Former Alderman Brian Green and some of his allies appealed Tuesday for tax breaks for residents who pay their property taxes early, but the Kernersville Board of Aldermen took no action on their request. At issue was a 2 percent tax discount that was given in former years to residents who paid their taxes before a certain date early in the fiscal year. The discount was begun in 1973, but by the late '80s it was no longer in effect.
