Foley, Eggleston Vying for District They Don't Live In

BY George Bennett

U.S. Rep. Mark Foley, R-West Palm Beach, and Democratic challenger Ken Eggleston have at least one thing in common: Neither one lives in the newly redrawn Congressional District 16. Foley, who has represented District 16 since 1995, was carved out of it by the redistricting plan approved by Florida legislators last month. Foley's West Palm Beach residence is now represented in Congress by U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Miramar. In fact, Foley lives closer to the new districts of U.S. Reps. Robert Wexler, D-Delray Beach, and Clay Shaw, R-Fort Lauderdale, than to his own district.

"Tea Party" Will Protest Any Raising of N.C. Tax

BY Carey Hamilton

Organizers are hoping that hundreds of people will gather at Corpening Plaza on Monday evening to send state legislators a strong message: Don't raise our taxes. The conservative John Locke Foundation and the N.C. Citizens for a Sound Economy are holding the "Tar Heel Tea Party" to give out information about the state's budget crisis and to urge taxpayers to unite against another tax increase. The Winston-Salem visit is one of three planned over the next two weeks. The groups will be in Wilmington on Wednesday and in Raleigh on April 8.

Impact Update 3.21

CSE Tax Tour to Mobilize Thousands in North Carolina Throughout April, North Carolina CSE, in conjunction with the John Locke Foundation, will be crisscrossing the state educating voters on the current budget crises and highlighting where their candidates stand on tax and budget issues. Our April tax tour will make 26 stops and reach out to thousands of activists to provide them with the training, information, and materials they need to have their voices effectively heard in the battles that lay ahead. Like several other state legislatures across the nation, North Carolina’s General Assembly will have to deal with a budget shortfall when they convene later this year. Currently estimated to be $900 million, this represents its second serious budget deficit in recent years. While some state legislators are proposing to tap into rainy-day funds and roll back spending to make up the difference, there is a vocal group that has begun proposing that the budget shortfall be addressed by raising taxes and they must be stopped. Key to fighting such proposed tax increases in North Carolina will be a sustained grassroots force dedicated to the principles of lower taxes, less government, and more economic freedom.

Nuevo Dependencia and World Government?

© 2002 Copley News Service, 3/27/2002 Foreign aid is never enough for the left and always too much for the right. However, President George W. Bush did the wise thing two weeks ago when he announced that the United States will contribute $5 billion over the next three years into a new Millennium Challenge Account to fund initiatives to help developing nations improve their economies and raise their standards of living.

Vinroot Pitches No Tax Pledge

BY Scott Mooneyham

State lawmakers are once again being asked to put their name on a promise not to raise taxes, with the latest effort organized by a former Republican gubernatorial candidate. Richard Vinroot and his Foundation for America's Future challenged all state lawmakers on Tuesday to sign the no-tax pledge, a year after the Legislature raised taxes by $440 million. So far, 23 of 170 have complied. "I think it's going to be important if we are going to have more jobs and less government," the former Charlotte mayor said.

Going Global

In recent years “globalization” has become a battle cry for the forces of big government. International gatherings such as the World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle or the recent European Union summit in Barcelona attract hundreds of thousands of protestors from around the globe. Union members and environmentalists man the picket lines with an amalgam of protestors rallying against a hodge-podge of social injustices. While it is difficult to discern a coherent vision among the polyglot of voices, one thing is clear: whatever the issue, the solution is more government and less free trade. This hostility towards increased exchange among nations ignores benefits that free trade bestows upon all nations.

Digital Copyright’s Corrupt Bargain

Unfulfilled with the staggering restrictions on competition already incorporated into U.S. copyright law, the entertainment industry launched a new offensive in the digital piracy war thanks to the enlistment of Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Ernest (Fritz) Hollings (D-S.C.). Sen. Hollings introduced the “Consumer Broadband and Digital Television Promotion Act” to mandate copy control standards on virtually every electronic device and software code sold or distributed in the United States.

Spring Break

Congress has recessed for Easter and Passover and most school children across America have a break in classes to celebrate the holidays. The biggest Supreme Court decision relating to education since Brown vs. Board of Education is expected within a few months. The federal government has just expanded its role and funding for K-12 education in America. At the same time, most states and local governments are at least looking to freeze spending after years of big increases because state and local budgets are coming up short.
