Critics say candidates lack punch on housing, inner cities

BY Don Hammonds

Don't look for affordable housing or economic development in urban areas to be major domestic priorities of either the Bush or Kerry administration, depending on who wins in November. That's the conclusion of a two influential Washington, D.C., think tanks that tend to fall on the opposite ends of the political spectrum, the liberal-oriented Brookings Institution and the conservative Heritage Foundation.

South Carolina Senate Race Fact #6: Tenenbaum’s Social Security Stance is the Same as Kerry’s

South Carolina U.S. Senate candidate Inez Tenenbaum is desperately trying to paint herself as a moderate. While Tenenbaum can run from her own liberal views, she can’t hide: Tenenbaum agrees with John Kerry that workers should not be allowed invest any part of their Social Security payroll taxes.

Washington State Tax Fact #6: I-884 is a Billion Dollar Tax Hike

By saying the tax hike is “one penny,” supporters of I-884 are trying to make the increase seem insignificant. Nothing could be further from the truth—the billion dollar sales tax hike would raise the sales tax by 15.4 percent. Ordinary Washingtonians would surely notice the impact of this tax hike: the average person would pay $115 in extra sales taxes every year. In fact, this “one penny” increase is enough to give the Evergreen State the highest sales tax rate in America.

Most ballots lack tax issues

BY Dennis Cauchon

The angry voter using ballot measures to cut taxes or demand more services from state and local government is taking a sabbatical this election campaign. Major ballot issues on taxing and spending are on the ballot Nov. 2 in only 13 states, a reduction in the role voter initiatives have played since 1978, when Californians approved Proposition 13 to slash property taxes.

Three ballot initiatives debated at forum

BY Hope Anderson

A penny sales tax increase would help reverse a decade of underfunding public education but would sink a floundering economy with more taxation. Opponents and supporters of Initiative 884 duked it out before a small audience gathered at the Cowlitz PUD building Wednesday. That sales tax initiative and two others that will appear on the Nov. 2 ballot were up for debate at a forum hosted by the League of Women Voters of Cowlitz County and The Daily News.

368 Economists Against Kerrynomics

The piece originally appeared on National Review Online. Leading economists have a message for America: “John Kerry favors economic policies that, if implemented, would lead to bigger and more intrusive government and a lower standard of living for the American people.”

Washington State Tax Fact #5: There’s No Real Education “Trust Fund”

Washington State Tax Fact #5: There’s No Real Education “Trust Fund”

Backers of the I-884 tax hike claim that the increase would create a “dedicated and protected” Trust Fund. This is misleading. What it actually creates is a statutory fund that legislators can override with a two-thirds vote at anytime. After just two years, the state legislature can scrap the I-884 “trust fund” with a simple majority vote and spend the new tax dollars anywhere. As Washington’s voters know, this type of thing happens all the time—voter initiatives rarely resemble their original intent after a few years because of legislative manipulation.
