Shortsighted State Tax Hikes

Here’s a little secret many governors and state legislator across the country don’t seem to be in on: raising taxes slows down the economy. A slower economy means less tax money for the state. It would seem, however, that in a time of budget shortfalls, politicians would want to stimulate the economy to bring in more money to spend—which we all know they love to do. Why, then, are states increasing taxes by a total of $17.5 billion this year—breaking the record set in 1992? Because those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

America's Tax Code Failure

Recent economic news has been promising; the Bureau for Economic Analysis reported that economic growth for the second quarter of 2003 was 2.4 percent, which far exceeded expectations. Unemployment data, while dropping from a peak of 6.4 percent, remained a concern, with total payroll numbers shrinking by 44,000 as July’s unemployment rate was reported at 6.2 percent. Orders to U.S. factories rose by 1.7 percent in June and personal consumption also increased by 3.3 percent in the second quarter. Overall, the news suggests the economy continues to improve, leaving the worst of the slump behind.

Transition Financing, Not Transition Costs

It is good news for all Americans that the debate over Social Security is moving from should we reform the system to how should we reform the system. The question of how to reform Social Security brings up new questions, but we must make sure these stones on the track don’t stop the train that is reform from continuing in the right direction.
