Thank You For Pledging to Hold the Line

Prominent leaders in both the Democrat and Republican Parties signed a pledge not to raise taxes – and taxpayers are now saying thank you for your pledge.

A GROWING FAMILY SEES REAL HELP FROM THE EXTRA MONEY

In the war on taxes, Shoreline residents Paul and Heather Savage are willing foot soldiers. Neither rich nor poor, they lead a modest but comfortable life that, like many families, revolves around their children, their community and their work. And like millions of middle-class families, the Savages eagerly embrace the idea of lower taxes. They were one of two dozen "tax families" enlisted by President Bush during the campaign to highlight the need for tax cuts, and like Bush, they believe lower taxes are fair and necessary.

If I Had $1.35 Trillion

In the popular song “If I Had $1,000,000” by the Barenaked Ladies, the lead singer opines about what he would do if he suddenly stumbled upon fantastic wealth. According to the song, he would purchase fantastic luxuries such as a fur coat, a Picasso painting, and a monkey. Hopefully, Congress will not undergo a similar spending spree with the massive budget surplus that the federal government is expected to accumulate over the next ten years.

Congress's Virtual School Reform

As published in The New York Times, May 18, 2001 The Senate will soon complete work on President Bush's education bill, just as the House begins to consider amendments to it. Without some fundamental changes, however, this once bold plan is scarcely worth enacting.
