CSE’s Grassroots Campaign to Support the Bush Tax Cut

The economic agenda of the new Bush Administration has provided CSE’s grassroots army with energy, passion and focus. Many of the administration’s top priorities are the issues CSE has championed over our 16-year history. At the heart of the president’s plan is an across-the-board tax cut that slashes marginal rates and eliminates the death tax.

Issue Number 1 - Taxpayers End Up Losers With The Lottery

Too many politicians in North Carolina are banking on a lottery as the solution our states fiscal problems. They are wagering that revenue generated from the sale of lottery tickets will make up any short falls in the state’s budget. Unfortunately, this line of thinking clashes with the reality that a lottery will create significant loses in sales tax for state and local governments.

Republicans use tax filing day to talk about cuts

BY MIKE GLOVER

Iowa Republican leaders sought to use the attention surrounding Monday's tax filing deadline to push for President Bush's $1.6 trillion tax cut package. "The president's proposal is good for all of Iowa's families," said Rep. Greg Ganske, a Republican who is giving up his seat in the U.S. House to challenge Sen. Tom Harkin. State Auditor Richard Johnson, who is giving up his job to run for the GOP nomination for Ganske's 4th District seat, said the tax cut is precisely what's need to spark a state economy that's showing signs of weakness.

Legislature Gives Parents More Control Over Their Children's Education

The 40,000 grassroots activists of Florida Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) applaud the Florida State Senate for passing by a vote of 25-14, a tax credit that will enable more parents to choose where their children go to school. This legislation, CS/HB271, would create a corporate income tax credit for contributions to nonprofit scholarship funding organizations. A similar measure passed the State House of Representatives by a vote of 71-46.

Texans compare numbers in tax-cut debate plan

BY Gary Susswein

As President Bush's $1.6 trillion tax-cut proposals work their way through Congress, Texans remain at odds over who exactly would benefit from the plans. A study co-written by the Austin-based Center for Public Policy Priorities found that nearly one-fourth of Texans would receive no benefit from Bush's proposed income-tax reductions.
