Saving Social Security

BY Alicia Colon

"What we have here is a failure to communicate." Those classic words were spoken by the actor Strother Martin in the film "Cool Hand Luke." But failure to communicate is not something that Queens native Larry Ward is likely to be guilty of. President of Interactive Political Media, he is one of the most sought-after Internet marketing professionals on the East Coast.

Snow's job: Selling the Bush agenda in Term 2

BY Thomas Kostigen

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (CBS.MW) -- In what is a surprising move to many, John Snow will remain as U.S. Treasury secretary for President Bush's second term. There had been widespread speculation that Snow would not be asked to stay on, and rumors were rampant on Wall Street as to who would be his successor. Forbes magazine publisher Steve Forbes and former Texas Senator Phil Gramm had been considered as candidates, according to reports.

Time to Put Social Security Out of Our Misery

BY STAR PARKER

In a free society, government exists to serve its people. In one that is not free, people are a tool of government. By this standard, anyone following the current debate on Social Security reform would have to conclude that we are living in a society that is increasingly less free.

Much-needed reform would help end debt

The Dec. 4 editorial “Go slowly on Social Security” expressed misplaced concern over the “cost” of reforming the retirement system with personal retirement accounts. Reform that allows taxpayers to keep some of their Social Security tax dollars does not “cost” taxpayers anything.

African Americans and Social Security

BY WILLIAM E. SPRIGGS

Proponents of Social Security privatization are trying to claim that the current program is unfair to African Americans and that a privatized program would serve African Americans better. This argument lends support to the privatization agenda while at the same time giving its advocates a compassionate gloss. But the claims about African Americans and Social Security are wrong.

WHAT IS THE EMPOWERMENT ZONE?

BY Jeff Wilkinson

To combat poverty in their poorest neighborhoods, the cities of Columbia and Sumter five years ago jointly applied for a federal grant that promised to deliver $100 million to the two cities from 1999 to 2009. The “empowerment zone” grants were available through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Columbia-Sumter Empowerment Zone became one of 15 empowerment zones in the nation. It joined the ranks of those in Philadelphia, Boston, Atlanta and other large cities. And it would be the only joint zone in the country.

While activists favor cutting tax breaks, history does not

BY JAMES MAYER

The first bill Rep. Mark Hass pushed through the Legislature was an income tax credit for employers who offer scholarships to their workers. Hass, a Beaverton Democrat, has since become one of the Legislature's leading advocates for closer scrutiny of such breaks. But once they're approved, tax breaks are almost impossible to remove. Hass found that out last session when he proposed limiting the mortgage interest deduction for second homes. "I heard from every realtor in the state," he said.

The Last Gaffe?

BY Jacob Sullum

According to Jack Kemp, Gregory Mankiw committed a "gaffe" by declaring "there are no free lunches" when it comes to Social Security reform. In Washington, as Michael Kinsley has pointed out, a "gaffe" is an inconvenient truth spoken at an inopportune time. Mankiw's propensity for gaffes is the main reason I'll miss him when he steps down as chairman of President Bush's Council of Economic Advisers.

Groups rally to raise tax on cigarettes

BY David Steves

SALEM - Despite the governor's opposition to raising cigarette taxes, health-care and anti-smoking groups are still hoping to reinstate 10 cents of that tax. That portion of Oregon's cigarette tax, which had been $1.28 a pack, was part of an array of revenue raisers that the Legislature approved, Gov. Ted Kulongoski signed, but voters defeated in February as Measure 30.
