Arizona Update: Tax Reform or Tax Hike?

Taxes Update In November of 2002, Governor Janet Napolitano appointed a 21 member Citizens’ Finance Review Commission to look into ways to make Arizona’s tax structure more reliable and competitive. She promised that she will not raise taxes in 2005. The commission came out with 36 recommendations, but their report centered around easing the tax burden on Arizona businesses.

Washington State Freedom Works Agenda Update

Taxes Governor Locke and the League of Education Voters (LEV) have released their billion-dollar sales tax increase plan, P-16. CSE has vowed to fight this plan every step of the way and we have begun the effort by sending direct emails to the governor to let him know we think there is a better way. Politicians have to learn to live within their means, just like ordinary families do. Exercising fiscal discipline and responsibility is the only way to foster the economic growth that Washington needs and we need to continually repeat this message.

Mannix, Walker told lies

BY Gene Anderson

Thanks again to the Republican party’s Kevin Mannix and Citizens for a Sound Economy’s Russ Walker for the lies perpetrated on Oregonians to make sure Measure 30 failed. Kevin, where is this magical plan to stop all the deadly cuts? Russ, where is the $500 million pot of money you said was available to bail out Oregon? There is neither, just two big lies. You see, after the last cuts that came, I personally know of three people who died, and who knows how many across Oregon who have died.

Tax-free Internet days numbered

BY Michael Gormley

ALBANY, N.Y. — Almost 20 years ago, Harley Duncan and the Kansas tax department he headed set out to encourage people to pay state sales tax on mail-order purchases, required by law but enforced only by a rarely used honor system. "Well, I was out preaching the sermon, and a reporter asked me, 'OK, what do I do if I want to pay the tax?'" Duncan recalled. "And I said, 'Hmm. Good question.' "Well, we didn't have any procedure," he said.

CSE Urges Congress to Avert Fiscal "Train Wreck" on Transportation Bill

Over the past two years, the federal government has been on an unprecedented spending spree, running up trillions of dollars in new deficit spending and future entitlement liabilities. Thanks in part to pressure from grassroots activists concerned about America’s long-term financial health, President Bush and true fiscal conservatives in Congress are preparing to slow the runaway spending train. Their target: the massively bloated and wasteful Transportation reauthorization bill being debated in Congress this week.

Tax opponent keeps the faith of fiscal conservatism

BY CRYSTAL BOLNER

PHOTO Russ Walker of Keizer is the director of the Northwest chapter of Citizens for a Sound Economy. Keizer’s rebellion against Salem’s property taxes was a selling point for Walker and his family. KEIZER — Russ Walker makes his living preaching self-reliance, less government and low taxes. Some would say that makes him a model Keizer resident. Walker is the director of the Northwest chapter of Citizens for a Sound Economy, the organization that spearheaded last week’s defeat of the state’s income tax Measure 30.
