G-8 Leaders Ignore Real Problems

Copley News Service, 07/24/2001 While the leaders of the major industrial countries, the so-called G-8 nations, fiddled in Genoa, Italy, the world economy was going into a deep freeze. Global trade is shrinking. A deflating dollar is squeezing international economic activity and putting currencies around the world at risk. The IMF continues to force poisonous tax increases and austerity measures down the throats of floundering economies like Argentina.

It is now evident that the House budget leaders are aiming right at our wallets and doing exactly what our state economy does not need: making a political move to counter President Bush’s tax rebate rather than making the right decision for North Carolina. Here is what one state legislator said back in June: "...I do think there is a good case to be made that, insofar as George W. Bush giveth...we could taketh away." Jonathan Hill, director of Citizens for a Sound Economy issued the following statement:

No One Is Minding The Store

Those elected by the people to serve in government are entrusted with an enormous power - the power to levy taxes upon the people they represent. This enormous power confers a corresponding duty to carefully scrutinize every aspect of government and to arrange the functions of government so that the minimum amount absolutely necessary is taken from the taxpayers who earn the money to begin with.

Democrats Warn of Spending Cuts

BY Eric Dyer

Budget talks have reached an impasse in the General Assembly, and legislative leaders say a hard decision must come next week on whether to raise taxes or slash government services to plug huge holes in the state's finances. Democrats, in a last-ditch effort to build public support for higher levies, warned Thursday that education and human services would sustain deep cuts and see some new initiatives shelved unless lawmakers bring in more money.

Lincoln CSE Activists Celebrate Incorporation Bill Defeat

Yesterday Lincoln CSE members were overjoyed about the news that their hard work paid off. S 24, the bill to Incorporate West Norman, was overwhelmingly defeated 90-25 in the North Carolina House of Representatives. CSE’s activists saw the bill as just another attempt to increase taxes, the size of government, and regulation through Incorporation. Through a carefully orchestrated campaign, CSE activists refuted claims by proponents of the bill that incorporation would actually mean "lower taxes."
