State education league wields clout

BY Andrew Garber

ISSAQUAH — The League of Education Voters' prospects of getting a $1 billion education tax package passed in November rest largely with people like Kelly Munn. A mother of three school-age kids, Munn has devoted years to pushing school levies in Issaquah. She joined the league to help organize a successful 2000 state initiative campaign, I-728, to reduce class sizes. Now she's gearing up for the group's latest effort. "I consider this my job," said Munn, a brisk woman with a determined air. "I'm a community organizer."

Colorado fiscal lid a tight fit

BY HARRY ESTEVE

DENVER -- Sidewalk tables fill quickly in LoDo, a trendy district of shops and cafes, as the playful sound of jazz wafts into the warm spring afternoon. A dozen blocks south, however, a darker mood prevails under the dome of the state Capitol where lawmakers study the state's finances and shudder.

Tax Day: Time for a Revolution

I’ve had it with the tax code, and I hope you have, too. It is time for a revolution. We need to send our tax code back to Europe like so many taxing Redcoats were two hundred years ago. We need to take the 60,044 pages of tax rules and regulations and dump them into the Boston Harbor like 1773 tea leaves. And we must stop clapping like seals every time the tasty, but rotten, fish of a tax-code complicating tax cut is tossed our way. We need to demand fundamental tax code simplification.

The maneuvering of Microsoft

BY C. Boyden Gray

The European Commission (EC) recently ruled Microsoft in violation of competition laws, fined the company a record $613 million and issued a new set of restrictions that would replace innovators with regulators when it comes to deciding how to upgrade products. Ultimately, the EC has put Microsoft on notice that any further attempts to improve its flagship Windows operating system may be illegal.

Grim Reaper loses tax protest

BY Beth Velliquette

DURHAM -- As the Grim Reaper walked up and down in front of the Hillsborough post office protesting federal taxes Thursday morning, the chief of the Hillsborough Police Department walked up to deliver some bad news. Without a permit, the reaper and her cohorts would have to stop protesting on the sidewalk, the chief said. The reaper disagreed, saying it was a violation of her right to free speech. But after a short and mild argument with the chief, she retired to a car parked on the street in front of the post office and stuck her sign out the sunroof.

The Tax Man Taketh

It has long been said by the political left that the tax cuts of President Reagan and current President George W. Bush have favored the rich at the expense of the poor. Critics claim the rich are not paying their fair share of the tax burden while middle and lower class citizens are struggling to pay for health care, education, and other basic necessities. The obvious solution for big government advocates to level the playing field is to raise taxes on the rich. However, despite the political rhetoric denouncing the Bush tax cuts as a windfall to the rich at the expense of the poor, recent empirical evidence finds the rich do actually pay a substantial amount of the federal tax burden.

Incumbents lead in fund-raising for primary

BY PETER WONG

When it comes to raising money for contested party nominations to Mid-Willamette Valley seats in the Oregon House, it’s better to be in than out, according to finance reports filed Monday. Reps. Vic Backlund of Keizer, Jeff Kropf of Sublimity and Donna Nelson of McMinnville have raised more than their challengers for the Republican nomination for new two-year terms in the May 18 primary.

The T-Day Top 10

BY Leo Morris

By Leo Morris for the editorial board Thursday is T-Day, otherwise known as April 15. To take your mind off your own situation, ponder these 10 argument-stopping or argument-starting tidbits, collected from a variety of sources. 1 Congratulations -- you're working for yourself now. April 7 was Indiana's Tax Freedom Day. That was the point at which you had earned enough to pay off your total tax bill -- federal, state and local. That was fours days earlier than National Tax Freedom Day and ranked us 28th in the nation as far as tax burdens go.
