Washington Take Note: Taxpayers Still Want Less

As the race towards the Democratic presidential primaries heats up, President Bush has come under fire, particularly for policies on Iraq. But the president is also drawing fire for other policies, including federal spending. A recent study by the Brookings Institution found that the size of government under Bush has increased, not decreased. Just recently, the president has asked for an additional $87 billion in federal spending to fund ongoing activities in Iraq. While government continues to grow, voters remain skeptical of big government and high taxes. In the most recent direct measure of taxpayer sentiment, voters in Alabama rejected Republican Gov. Bob Riley’s $1.2 billion tax hike by a two-to-one margin. Limited government, it appears, is still popular with the voters.

Proposal offers park option to districts

BY Neil Strassman

Mary Ann Hefner lives on Lake Lyndon B. Johnson in Central Texas, but children in her community don't have a local park with a playground. "As far as where you can take children, it's only our little elementary school," said Hefner, president of the Kingsland Municipal Utility District in Llano County.

WHY BUY QUOTAS ON TOBACCO?

BY PAUL BECKNER

The article "R.J. Reynolds protests Dole assessment plan" (Aug. 25) suggests that North Carolina Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) endorses the proposed buyout of the federal tobacco quota. However, CSE, a grassroots organization that advocates lower taxes, less government and more freedom, does not endorse the buyout.
