The Revolt of the Renters

New York comes in third, after California and Florida, in its share of America’s outstanding subprime mortgage debt. But not all New Yorkers welcome Congress’s attempts to bail out homeowners. After all, why should renters bail out homeowners when they don’t even own a home? On Monday, a New York resident, Martin S., wrote on the Web site angryrenter.com, “Do not bail out greedy homeowners and builders with my money!! Let them suffer the consequences of their greed.”

Hey, Big Spender

Thirty-five years ago, Richard Nixon justified his big-government economic policies by stating: "We are all Keynesians now." Given the way government spending has exploded in the last six years, a similarly candid member of the current Congress or administration would be forced to observe: "We are all big spenders now." While many on the left would applaud such a day, fiscal conservatives are desperately looking for some reason to think this is not true of their elected officials. Fortunately, the House is about to vote on a bill that would make it easier to trim some of the budgetary fat Tom Delay so erroneously claimed had been squeezed from the federal budget.

Saving Social Security

"What we have here is a failure to communicate." Those classic words were spoken by the actor Strother Martin in the film "Cool Hand Luke." But failure to communicate is not something that Queens native Larry Ward is likely to be guilty of. President of Interactive Political Media, he is one of the most sought-after Internet marketing professionals on the East Coast.

Jockeying Under Way on Social Security

WASHINGTON - Lawmakers from around the nation are positioning themselves behind the scenes to become the face of Social Security reform, an issue that President Bush has labeled the priority of his second term. Several potential 2008 presidential contenders are among the members of the House and Senate who could be catapulted by the issue to the status of household names. And as the president prepares to outline his proposal in next month's State of the Union address, each is pushing his own view on how best to change the system.
