For the average taxpayer, a tax is a tax. That's not the case at the North Carolina Legislature. There are tax loopholes and local option taxes - two of the less onerous versions in legislative parlance. There are "sin" taxes that put it to people who engage in dubious activities such as drinking alcohol. And there's the sales tax - regressive to liberals but more politically palatable to moderates.

Teacher Health Insurance in Texas: A Solution Looking for a Problem

Recently, there have been calls for improved teacher health insurance, with many people alleging the lack of teacher health insurance is the most important issue for improving education in Texas. No one disagrees that health insurance is an important issue, but there is much disagreement over proposals to use the Permanent School Fund to provide $700 million for the purchase of teacher health insurance. Diverting funds from the Permanent School Funds would be wrong for two reasons. First, the data do not suggest that there is a health insurance crisis for educators in Texas. Second, taking resources from the constitutionally created Permanent School Fund would threaten the fund’s long-term financial health.

BUDGET: SURPLUS ALLOWS CONGRESS TO GIVE TAXPAYERS A BREAK

BODY: From the very first assertion until the final word of your April 30 piece, "In trade-off; the budget ax can hit home," I was amazed at your complete irreverence to truth and facts. Immediately delving into an emotional pitch for big government, the article begins with its first misconception: "Tax breaks require spending cuts."

Wake school budget critics give alternative

BY T. KEUNG HUI

RALEIGH -- Conservative critics presented an alternative Wake County school budget Thursday that they said would meet classroom needs without requiring a property-tax increase. The proposal was made in response to the Wake school system's request for a 5-cent tax-rate increase. The counterproposal, developed by the John Locke Foundation for N.C. Citizens For A Sound Economy, called for millions in savings in non-instructional services and transferring non-teaching funding into money for teachers.
