COUNTY'S SPENDING CALLED OUT OF CONTROL

BY NIRVI SHAH

A local tax-watchdog group claims county spending is out of control, outpacing population growth and providing services that are luxuries, not government responsibilities. The county's total budget has grown 65 percent since 1997 - from $1.8 billion to the $3.1 billion budget commissioners are expected to approve Monday. Meanwhile, the county's population has grown about 21 percent, according to the U.S. Census.

PRAs Arrive in Congress

The voices that whisper in the corridors of power are saying Congressmen are considering and preparing bills that would allow Americans to save for their retirement with personal retirement accounts (PRAs)—accounts that we would own, that we could pass on to our children, and that politicians could not take away. At first glance this is very exciting for those of us who understand the benefits of personal accounts. But before we get too excited, we need to look to CSE’s core Social Security reform principles, and look for plans that:

A Bigger IRS or a Smaller Tax Code?

This week, the Internal Revenue Service announced a new program to combat tax avoidance by teaming up with state tax authorities. The new plan provides for greater information sharing between state and federal tax authorities in order to ensure compliance with state and federal tax laws. Yet in many ways such policies perpetuate the existing tax system, piling on greater authorities for tax collectors rather than addressing the root problem: an overly complex and obtuse tax code that invites creative accounting and shady practices. A simpler, flatter tax code would eliminate such opportunities, improve compliance, and reduce the need to continually expand the authority of the IRS.

Paid petitioners to hit anti-tax measure campaign trail

BY CHARLES E. BEGGS

SALEM - The campaign to repeal the legislative tax increase is just a few days old, but both sides are already playing hardball. A union-backed watchdog group said Wednesday that it plans to closely monitor the paid workers who are getting ready to collect signatures for the referendum campaign, which aims to give voters their say on the $800 million tax package. Formed in 2001, the Voter Education Project played a key role in last year's election season. Volunteers observed petition circulators, and videotaped some for irregularities.
