Stumbling on Tax Reform

They gather around in Iowa and New Hampshire, but they’re not saying very much. This Presidential season, the Democrat candidates as a group are failing to articulate any plan on taxes except raising them. Even Bill Clinton-style “triangulation” politics seem to have disappeared. It’s a sad day when former centrists like Joe Sen. Lieberman are playing the class warfare card and calling for new tax hikes on upper-income Americans.

The Case For Thinning Our Forests

Across the American West, catastrophic wildfires have decimated the landscape —destroying homes and property, devastating soil, air and water quality and wiping out thousands of acres of irreplaceable wildlife habitat. In the last three years, we have seen two of the worst wildfire seasons on record. In 2002 alone, four states—Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Oregon—had their biggest fires in history. Once again, anyone in his right mind is asking the same question: what can we do to stop these catastrophic wildfires from happening?

In 2003, John Potter, Postmaster General of the USPS, launched the first Five-Year Strategic Planfor the US Postal Service, aimed at making the government business perform like a free market business—- except that it would be better because it would be from the evils of the market.

Trim the Fat

With the end of the fiscal year, the Congressional Budget Office concluded that the federal deficit is actually $27 billion lower than was forecast in August, totaling $374 billion for 2003. Unfortunately, the shrinking deficit is not an indication of renewed fiscal restraint by the federal government. In fact, this year’s deficit is more than double the 2002 deficit of $158 billion. The main reasons for the drop in this year’s deficit are corporate revenues that are increasing as the economy strengthens and smaller than forecast outlays on defense and education. Discretionary spending, however, continues to be problematic, and mandatory spending on entitlement programs will skyrocket under a huge Medicare drug benefit currently being negotiated.

County OKs $200 million for Scripps

BY Anthony Man

The money, $40 million more than originally estimated to land the deal, would pay for a temporary site, land for a permanent location and construction of two buildings.
