Senator Daschle, the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the DOJ Need to Re-Assess Priorities and Responsibilities

Soundbite: With our nation our at war and the threat of another terrorist attack at home very real, the importance of the institutions of government responsible for administering justice cannot be overstated. Unfortunately for Americans, Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle and Senator Patrick Leahy (D- Vt.) are stonewalling on President Bush's judicial nominations. Both Democratic Senators are blocking President Bush's nominees from ever receiving a committee hearing or a vote on the Senate floor. This partisan obstructionism is indefensible and harmful to our legal system. Meanwhile, the U.S. Justice Department has been devoting scarce tax dollars towards a baseless racketeering case against the tobacco industry instead of protecting and defending Americans from future terrorist attacks. Americans deserve a Justice Department that places protecting the nation from terrorist attacks ahead of pursuing frivolous lawsuits against law-abiding companies.

Just the Facts

© 2002 Copley News Service, 1/31/2002 As a rookie columnist, I have always tried to be fair in recognizing good ideas, whether they come from Democrats or Republicans, and when I criticize what I believe to be ill-considered ideas, I do so on substantive grounds so as to avoid making ad hominem attacks. So I was disappointed to hear Democrats make false claims about us returning to an era of deficits and fiscal profligacy when the Congressional Budget Office reported that it was reducing its 10-year budget surplus projection from $3.4 trillion to "only" $1.6 trillion.

Senator Daschle Needs to Check Spending

Last week, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) announced that the estimated 10-year federal budget surplus would be $4 trillion lower than last year's estimate for the same time frame. While a $4 trillion difference is staggering indeed, this reversal of fortune should be a reminder of the precariousness of economic activity and the futility of 10-year projections.

The State of the Union

On Tuesday, President Bush delivered his first State of the Union address to the American public. Not surprisingly, the war on terrorism was a major focus, as was homeland security. Bush also touched upon a few domestic policy initiatives and the unease with corporate America generated by the collapse of Enron. In the next few weeks the president will deliver his budget to Congress, which will provide a more detailed description of some of the plans outlined in his State of the Union. The budget will make one thing clear: Washington has some tough choices ahead as early projections show deficits for the next two years. President Bush has outlined an ambitious program to provide for the security of the American people. With deficits looming, the president and Congress must revisit many costly programs and reorder budget priorities with an eye toward prudence and responsibility.

Grow Florida's Economy Not Florida's Government

The citizens of Florida have been hit hard by the current recession. Many people have lost jobs as business struggle to make ends meet. The Florida legislature should not compound the problem by backing a broad-based tax increase at a time when our economy is sluggish. Senator John McKay has made a proposal that would do just that - raise taxes! Worse, it seeks to shift the tax burden from tourists to the engine of Florida's economic growth : private enterprise.

Daschle's War on Bush

© 2002 Copley News Service, 1/9/2002 One of my New Year's resolutions was to give Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle a second chance after he scuttled the so-called economic stimulus package. But a week into the New Year I find myself having to break that resolution after hearing the Democratic leader rail against President George W. Bush. While Bush is fighting a war against terrorism around the world, Daschle is waging war against the president on the home front.
