The Cost Of Being Blue

BY David S. Broder

The division between the red and blue Americas has become a familiar topic for political talk shows. But it is a lot more than that. It has real-world consequences, effects that can be measured in hundreds of millions of dollars in federal spending. The county-by-county maps, displaying vast expanses of red where George W. Bush prevailed for the second time in the Nov. 2 election, show a spreading Republican tide big enough to produce his overall 51 percent majority vote. Those blue dots on the map are the pockets of Democratic resistance, where John Kerry was able to win.

'A la carte' cable TV a misguided idea

BY Loretta Sanchez

Thursday, November 25, 2004 - Imagine a world where the government would decree newspapers out of existence and require, instead, that you must buy your news stories from individual reporters. Or imagine a world in which shopping malls would be banned, and where, after purchasing a pair of jeans, you'd have to slog across town to buy shoes.

10 Reasons Why Personal Retirement Accounts SAVE Social Security

“The mission of the Alliance for Retired Americans is to ensure social and economic justice and full civil rights for all citizens so that they may enjoy lives of dignity, personal and family fulfillment and security.” The ARA claims a membership in excess of 3 million members, all devoted to saving social security and economic equality. While noble, ARA’s future success comes into question when one looks at where ARA stands on the issue of Social Security. Like the AARP, the Citizens for Tax Justice, and the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, ARA staunchly opposes personal retirement accounts. The organization posted its “10 Reasons Why Privatization Destroys Social Security,” which are readily debunked by the facts.

Tax Reform Veterans See Hurdles Ahead

BY Jonathan Weisman and Jeffery H. Birnbaum

The two primary architects of Congress's last major tax reform say President Bush so far has failed to lay the groundwork for his ambitious tax agenda and will have to invest a vast amount of political capital to succeed in broadly simplifying the tax code.

Polling Shows Economic Issues Most Important in 2004 Election

It wasn’t in The New York Times headlines today, but a close read of the actual polling results from the NYT/CBS November 18-21 nationwide poll shows that issues mattered far more than personal qualities this election cycle, and that economic issues were more important to voters than national security or moral issues.

U.S. Rep. Sensenbrenner Leads Charge Against Internet Taxes in Wisconsin

FreedomWorks fought hard for S. 150, the Internet Tax Nondiscrimination Act, because it extends the ban on state and local taxes on Internet access and services for the next four years. The bill, which passed Congress last week, covers citizens in every state, but it is especially sweet for Internet users in Wisconsin. That’s because Wisconsin had a special exemption that allows the state and Wisconsin local governments to levy taxes on Internet access. But thanks to Menomonee Falls Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, a provision in S. 150 ends the Wisconsin exemption and will save Wisconsin taxpayers millions of dollars a year.

Wisconsin FreedomWorks Director Appears on Local Television

KENOSHA – Wisconsin FreedomWorks State Director Cameron Sholty appeared on local television Monday as part of a program to discuss local and national issues facing taxpayers. This appearance marks the second time Sholty has appeared on Dennis Shook’s program, Poli-Talks. From topics on the recent melee at an NBA game to Internet taxation, Sholty presented the case for Personal Retirement Accounts and other limited government positions while other members of the panel adopted more liberal positions on such issues as taxes masquerading as impact fees for local development.
