What Would Jefferson Do?

On July 4th in 1776, the Continental Congress in Philadelphia adopted the Declaration of Independence, a document that announced the colonies’ freedom from the British Crown. Written by Thomas Jefferson, the declaration of freedom signaled a new approach to governance, rejecting tyranny and despotic rule in favor of a government whose power was limited in scope and whose authority was drawn from the people it governed. As so eloquently stated by Jefferson, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…” Today, with the federal government alone consuming roughly 20 percent of the nation’s output, it may be useful to revisit the original tenets outlined by Jefferson.

Connecticut CSE: No Tax Increases!

On Tuesday, Connecticut Governor John Rowland vetoed an interim budget proposed by state Senate and House Democrats. The spending plan would have cost the state $27.7 billion, creating a $1 billion budget gap. The solution from state legislators was to raise taxes, and the proposal included a $447 million tax hike. The plan would also raise taxes on business profits and license fees. Citizens for a Sound Economy supports the governor’s decision to reject the tax increase.

New Jersey Tax Hike Plan Passes Legislature on Tuesday

With Governor McGreevey's support, the New Jersey state Senate passed a plan on Tuesday that will raise taxes by almost $600 million. Last year, Governor McGreevey passed the Business Tax Reform Act of 2002, which cost taxpayers in the state $2.5 billion in 2003. The governor promised not to raise taxes in his 2002 campaign, and Citizens for a Sound Economy’s 7000 New Jersey members are disappointed that McGreevey broke his no-tax commitment yet again.

Economy needs regulatory reform as much as tax cuts

BY Alice Click

Tax cuts aren't the only answer to kickstarting the economy. For consumers, this means higher prices and fewer jobs. The burden from excessive regulation and litigation also slow the economy. Regulatory reform is just as important as tax reform for strengthening the economy.

First, Do No Harm

©2003 Copley News Service, 7/1/2003 Hippocrates, circa 400 B.C., is credited with creating the oath to which all doctors swore. The oath was subsequently named in his honor and survives to this day as the Hippocratic Oath. From this early date physicians were already organized into a guild, with regulations for training and the promotion of a professional ideal. To paraphrase from this oath, a doctor's responsibility is to "first, do no harm." Unfortunately for doctors, Congress does not abide by a similar oath, particularly in the area of health-care policy.
