GOP Eyes Congressional Fiscal Reform

BY Steve Jordahl

This is also a national radio hit on the Dobson Focus on the Family network. A group of House Republicans is highlighting the progress in reining in the budget and asking their colleagues to continue tightening their belts. The message from members of the Waste, Fraud and Abuse Public Affairs team in the House is that government bureaucracy has woven a web of redundant and ineffective programs.

Bloated Senate Transportation Bill Breaks the Budget

Earlier this year, President Bush and Congress took a step in the right direction when they passed a budget that begins to restrain the runaway growth in spending. Unfortunately, yesterday the Senate passed a massive $295 billion transportation bill that breaks that budget agreement. The bill, H.R. 3, is more than $11 billion larger than the agreed upon allotment for transportation. FreedomWorks urges the President and Congress to reject this extra spending in conference.

Fixing the U.S. Budget Process

At what point do we admit that federal spending is out of control? The amount government spends annually per household has risen from $18,000 in 2000 to $20,500 in 2004 - an increase of 13% and the largest five-year expansion of the government since the Vietnam era. This marks only the fourth time in U.S. history that federal spending has exceeded $20,000 per household.

President Bush Begins Push for Budget Discipline in Fiscal 2006

Government spending is growing at unsustainable rates, threatening future economic growth and prosperity. This threat is why FreedomWorks applauds President Bush for presenting a fiscal 2006 budget that begins to restrain discretionary spending and eliminates some unneeded programs.

Libertarian group eyes budget process

BY DAVID BATES

Richard Burke spent Monday in Salem, making the rounds of legislative staff to get a feel for the political climate in the Capitol while lawmakers were busy on the floor or elsewhere in the building. Burke, who heads Oregon's Libertarian Party, feels the temperature may be more or less right for a coalition of Libertarians, Republicans and other conservative activists to leave a stamp not only on the state's nearly $12 billion budget, but possibly even on the process lawmakers use to draft one every two years.

Republicans will renew spending lid push

BY CHARLES E. BEGGS

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Republicans will be back in charge of the Oregon House when the 2005 Legislature convenes on Jan. 10 — and they'll return with a plan to clamp a lid on state spending as a way to create a rainy day fund. The plan likely would involve asking voters to change the state's "kicker" law, which refunds money to taxpayers when revenue tops budget estimates. The GOP plan would divert extra money to a reserve pot, instead of into the kicker fund. When the pot was full, refunds to taxpayers could resume.

A 3-D Economic Illusion

Policymakers would do well to keep in mind a couple of universal truths when preparing to embark upon fundamental changes to long-standing programs and entrenched policies, such as creating personal retirement accounts and simplifying the federal tax code. One such truth is: What we don't know usually doesn't harm us nearly as much as what we think we know that isn't true.
