Making Tax Cuts Permanent

Week in Summary: This week being ‘tax week’ the House will take up legislation to make permanent the tax benefits enacted by the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Act of 2001. This legislation is desperately needed to get our economy back on track and is featured below in the issues in-depth section. The House will also consider H.R. 476, the “Child Custody Protection Act.” This bill would make it a crime to take a pregnant minor across state lines for an abortion.

Outrage Over Budget Easy

Outrage over budget easy; solutions hard There are some things that are popular and easy to do. Say you love babies. Say you love America. Say you like apple pie. And say you hate taxes. It's not exactly a courageous position. Everyone hates taxes, and no one wants to see them increased. It's like mounting a soapbox and declaring the sky is blue.

'Taxes Ought To Be Fair' But Are They?

BY Carlene Hempel

When North Carolina's current tax code was written, many families were so poor they had to eat cornmeal mush and pig carcasses to survive, banks across the state were closing their doors and a charismatic new president, in his first address to the nation, declared that the only thing people had to fear was fear itself. That was the early 1930s, a time when the country was in financial collapse and the states were desperate to meet burgeoning social demands.

International Tax Competition

Globalization is knitting separate national economies into a single world economy. That is occurring as a result of rising trade and investment flows, greater labor mobility, and rapid transfers of technology.

Texans Could Save $700 Million On Federal Income Taxes

Texans are giving the Internal Revenue Service more money than they should, according to Texas Comptroller Carole Keeton Rylander. Legislation which would restore the IRS sales tax deduction for Texans would be good for the state. The $700 million not sent to the federal government would generate 160,180 new Texas jobs, provide $580 million in new Texas investment and add $874 million to the Gross State Product in 2001. Texans and citizens in eight other states are denied fair tax treatment because we do not deduct a state income tax from our federal taxes.

Activists Storm D.C. to Demand Senate Action

Activists visited the White House to spread the message that they want Senate action on the Bush agenda. Some of CSE’s best volunteer citizen activists from Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, Washington, and Utah took time out of their schedules to come to the nation’s capital to express their frustration with the Senate’s stone-walling and delay tactics. “Let’s Vote,” was the message sent to Senate office after Senate office.

Thinking Inside the Box

BY Dennis Rogers

Somebody has to say it, so I will: It is time to raise taxes. Sales taxes, property taxes, income taxes, I don't care. We've got to do something drastic, because this political po' mouthin' has got to stop. I know such a radical idea might not thrill the John Locke Foundation or the N.C. Citizens for a Sound Economy protesters who showed up to chant and drink tea in front of the legislature Monday afternoon, but hey, you call 'em like you see 'em.

Recent discussions of Social Security's future solvency have been dominated by misleading and inaccurate portrayals of the Social Security Trust Fund and the impact of budget surpluses on the program's finances.
