Venus Williams to President Clinton: “Can you lower my taxes?”

The Washington Post reported Sunday that after Venus Williams won the U.S. Open on Saturday she greeted President Clinton with a question: "Can you lower my taxes?" It is estimated that after taxes, Venus Williams will take home $483,200 of her $800,000 check for winning the U.S. Open -- a 39.6 percent government penalty for winning the U.S. tennis tournament. While Venus Williams’ tax woes may be an extreme case, it typifies the robbery of Americans’ pocketbooks by the government.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: A Market for Wine and Spirits from Portland, Maine to Portland, Oregon

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Richard Berman breathed some life into the dormant commerce clause by refusing to dismiss a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of direct wine sales in New York State. New York, like 29 other states, currently prohibits out-of-state wineries from selling directly to consumers. Predictably, the result of such practice has meant higher prices and poorer selection for consumers.

13 Democrats, 1 Republican reverse vote to sustain 'Death Tax'

CSE applauds the bi-partisan attempt by the U.S. House of Representatives to override the Clinton-Gore veto of the Death Tax Elimination Act, which fell 14 votes short of overriding President Clinton’s veto. Fourteen Democrats reversed their previous vote to end the estate tax and voted yesterday against saving Americans from this unfair tax.

What Bush Must Do to Defeat Gore

Copley News Service, 09/08/2000 I've believed all along that this presidential campaign would be neck and neck all the way down to the wire, and early indicators seem to bear that out. Pundits can blather about this so-called "issueless" campaign, but this election will be won or lost on issues. Al Gore knows it, and his strategy is to wage class warfare and offer voters a clear vision of "tax-credit social engineering."

Call to Action: S. 353- The Class Action Fairness Act

CALL YOUR SENATOR AT 202-224-3121 TO URGE PASSAGE OF S.353-THE CLASS ACTION FAIRNESS ACT!!!! If you won $1 in a lawsuit and your lawyer got paid almost $1 million, that wouldn’t be fair. Yet, that is exactly what happens with some state-based class action lawsuits. The Senate will soon vote on legislation that will return fairness to state-based class action lawsuits by allowing their removal to federal court. The U.S. House of Representatives passed similar legislation last year. For information on this legislation click on the link below:

Term limiters vote differently

BY Chris Hayter / James Miller III

The November elections are quickly approaching, and challengers are gearing up for the formidable task of unseating incumbents. Of the 30 House seats that are open, six are being relinquished voluntarily by members who have term-limited themselves. In these times of plenty, it is good to know we have selfless heroes committed to the ideal of citizen legislators.
