Who’s For S-CHIP? Everyone, Unfortunately.

BY Peter Suderman

Politicians and pundits are busy folks: They’ve got fundraisers, media appearances, speeches, cocktail parties, more fundraisers — it’s a lifestyle that doesn’t leave much room for actual policy research. Hence, the invention of talking points, collections of easy to remember points of argument passed around to Congressmen and their staff, as well as friendly third parties. I never saw the Democrats’ talking points on their planned expansion of S-CHIP, the program designed to fund health insurance for children in low-income families, but I imagine the list looked something like this:

Watching CNBC

BY An NRO Symposium

Another night, another debate. On Tuesday, the Republicans talked economics in Dearborn. National Review Online gathered a group — virtually — to weigh in. Here’s what they thought. Brian Darling Republicans have a long way to go to regain the trust of the American people, but the debate showed some hopeful signs of change and reform. Herewith, some thumbnail observations… Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney went after each other. That kind of feistiness will be needed in the general election.

Broadband Triple Threat

BY Cesar Conda

In 2004, President Bush declared that “all Americans should have affordable access to broadband technology by 2007,” and that his administration “is working to create an environment to foster broadband deployment.” Unfortunately, the policy prescriptions of certain agencies and the policy inaction of Congress put this goal at risk.

Bush Tax Hikes?

BY Cesar Conda

Rumors abound that the Bush administration might be open to accepting tax increases as part of a budget or entitlement-reform compromise with the Democrats. According to Fred Barnes of The Weekly Standard, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson “is believed to be receptive to a deficit-reduction deal, for instance, that would raise the top rate (now 35 percent) on individual income and/or the payroll tax cap, in return for spending restraint and entitlement reforms.”

GDP Falls, the Left Attacks?

BY Cesar Conda

The Commerce Department reported today that real economic growth declined from 2.6 percent in the second quarter to 1.6 percent in the third quarter of 2006. The Democrats and the mainstream media will no doubt say this is firm evidence that President Bush’s tax-cutting policies are starting to fail and that it’s time for a new policy direction. Critics also might blame the Federal Reserve for waiting too long to end its cycle of interest-rate hikes.

The GOP Has Some Explaining to Do

BY Cesar Conda & Daniel Clifton

In 2004, two out of three voters were investors, the majority of which voted to re-elect President George W. Bush. In fact, investors increased their vote for Bush from 51-46 in 2000 to 53-46 in 2004. As a result, Bush received 5 million more votes in the last election than the first time around, and eclipsed national levels for all categories of investors, including self-identified members of the investor class, 401(k) owners, and direct stockowners.

Energy Independence Is a Winner for the GOP

BY Cesar Conda

Congressional Republicans are breathing a little easier because of the recent decline in gasoline prices. Earlier this year, Sen. Charles Schumer (D., N.Y.) confidently proclaimed: “High gas prices are going to be the final nail in the GOP’s coffin this election year.” Today, gasoline prices have dropped to almost $2 per gallon in some parts of the country.

Immigration Realism

BY Tamar Jacoby and Cesar V. Conda

John Fonte’s understanding of the immigration debate is unfortunately out of touch. (See his NRO piece, “Comprehensively Wrong,” posted on July 25.) So perhaps we can do something to help him better understand it.

A Day in the Life of Scooter Libby

BY Cesar Conda

As a former senior staff member in the office of the vice president, I've gotten many questions in recent days from reporters about my direct boss Chief of Staff Scooter Libby, who pleaded innocent in the CIA leak case last Thursday: "What is he really like on a personal level? What drives him? Why would he act as alleged in the indictment against him?

Vouchers for New Orleans

BY FreedomWorks

There is a second rescue urgently needed in the terrible aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and one that is long overdue: saving New Orleans school kids from their broken public-school system. The tragedy of the storm provides America with a golden opportunity, and the answer lies in the tens of billions of dollars of federal emergency spending. Let's create emergency school-choice vouchers for the children displaced by Katrina.
