A Supply-Side Energy Plan

Copley News Service, 05/23/2001 Success in politics, as in governing, requires getting the big things right, and President George W. Bush succeeds in getting the big things right in his sweeping new energy plan. He understands that our energy challenge lies on the supply side, and he and Vice President Dick Cheney therefore move decisively on many fronts to free up energy production currently hamstrung by regulation, taxation and government interference at just about every level.

Suit over Easley ads returns to court

A lawsuit over the controversial public service announcements Gov. Mike Easley aired as attorney general was back in court Tuesday as lawyers argued over whether it should go forward.

Citizens for a Sound Economy, argued to the state Court of Appeals that a judge's order last year dismissing the group's suit against Easley failed to give a specific reason why the suit was being tossed out.

Advocates say tax increase preferable to cuts in services

BY SCOTT MOONEYHAM

Diana Hertz says lawmakers should think hard before cutting the budgets of state agencies that serve the poor and disabled. A single mother of a 5-year-old son, Hertz says she would be on welfare instead of making $26,000 a year as an office manager if it weren't for state and federal child care subsidies.

Thank You For Pledging to Hold the Line

Prominent leaders in both the Democrat and Republican Parties signed a pledge not to raise taxes – and taxpayers are now saying thank you for your pledge. NC CSE has signed pledges and commitments from a majority of members of the North Carolina House of Representatives and 18 members of the North Carolina Senate. This gives a clear majority of votes needed to stop any tax increase in the 2001-02 session of the North Carolina General Assembly.

If I Had $1.35 Trillion

In the popular song “If I Had $1,000,000” by the Barenaked Ladies, the lead singer opines about what he would do if he suddenly stumbled upon fantastic wealth. According to the song, he would purchase fantastic luxuries such as a fur coat, a Picasso painting, and a monkey. Hopefully, Congress will not undergo a similar spending spree with the massive budget surplus that the federal government is expected to accumulate over the next ten years.
