Tax Code Is Recipe For Pitfalls, Cheating

Saturday is April 15: national lawbreaker day. Everyone could be a criminal on tax day because of the sheer size and complexity of the federal tax code. At more than 9 million words and growing, the tax code is a leviathan of potholes, pitfalls and disasters waiting to happen.

Kemp: Brady could pass right into politics

Jack Kemp is a man with a plan -- for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The former congressman and NFL quarterback thinks Brady would fit in as nicely in politics as he does behind center. "I love the way he handles himself,'' Kemp told Newsday. "I really admire him. He's the man of the hour who's going for a third Super Bowl. A guy with a record and image like that, particularly being a quarterback, would be perfect for politics.'' Wonder why no one thought about that for former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw?

Bean ends Crane's 3-decade reign

Throughout the campaign, Melissa Bean insisted U.S. Rep. Phil Crane was "out of town, out of touch and out of time." Now, thanks to Bean, he's out of a job. Bean, a Democrat, pulled off the state's shocker Tuesday by ousting the veteran Crane 52 percent to 48 percent with 99 percent of precincts reporting. She declared victory at 10:45 p.m. Tuesday. Crane conceded moments later. It was the first loss of Crane's career. He withdrew early from his 1980 bid for president.

U.S. watches as Crane fights for life

On a cold, windy morning, Democrat Melissa Bean stands outside a Hoffman Estates grocery store, shaking hands and searching for the votes she needs to defeat Republican Congressman Phil Crane, a conservative icon and one-time presidential candidate who has served in Congress for 35 years. She doesn't have to wait long before she finds a supporter.

GOP wrong to play residency card

I'm going to touch on a few things in this column having to do with the rematch between Rep. Phil Crane (R-Ill.) and Democrat Melissa Bean and why any GOP assault on Bean because she lives out of the district is hypocritical, to say the least. More on that in a few paragraphs. I spent some of Saturday with each candidate in what is the marquee House race in Illinois and one of the most closely watched House races in the nation.

Delegates love Cheney, but some wonder if he should go

NEW YORK -- On the first night of the Republican National Convention, about 70 family members and friends of Dick Cheney gathered in a large function room on a top floor of the posh St. Regis Hotel for an unpublicized, quiet two hours with him. It was a port in the storm for an unpopular vice president.
