The Quiet Push for Massive Tax Increases in Illinois

Many Illinois residents are unaware that there is a quiet but powerful push for a massive tax increase. This bill, entitled HB750 (but also known as SB2 & E.F.R.A.) is slated to increase income taxes by 67 percent (from 3 percent to 5 percent) and the corporate income tax rate 67 percent (from 4.8 percent to 8 percent). There is also talk of expanding the sales tax to cover things like auto repair and health club memberships.

Washington State Economic Recovery Continues

Washington State FreedomWorks welcomed the news from the State Revenue Forecast Council that economic growth has outpaced projections for the sixth straight quarter. “This is an example of sound economic principles at work,” said Jamie Daniels, WA FreedomWorks Director. “In 2003, the legislature closed the budget deficit without increasing taxes and that strategy is paying off now. This projection should send a strong message to the Governor and the legislature that they need to stay the course and let our economy continue to recover.”

Democrats have plan to even out spending

BY JAMES MAYER

SALEM -- House Democrats unveiled a plan Wednesday to fix the state's financial problems by creating a rainy-day fund and capping the growth of tax breaks. "The state's fiscal management is abysmal," said Minority Leader Jeff Merkley, D-Portland. The Democrats want the Legislature to put two constitutional amendments on the ballot in November 2006. One would create a reserve fund with money from the budget's ending balance and capital-gains tax receipts. The other would limit the growth of tax breaks to the rate of inflation.

State budget bonanza: Forecast jumps by $739 million

BY DAVID AMMONS

Washington's rekindled economy will pump an unexpected $739 million into the state treasury, significantly easing lawmakers' efforts to bridge a huge budget gap, revenue forecasters said Thursday. The good news, the largest quarterly increase ever, was called "the luck o' the Irish" on St. Patrick's Day by the House finance chairman. It touched off an instant debate over whether tax hike should be off the table as lawmakers deal with a $1.5 billion spending gap. Key Democratic legislators said a tax increase still looks unavoidable.

Dirty Little Secrets

This column was distributed by UPI. Atlanta, GA, Mar. 15 (UPI) -- There are three dirty little secrets congressional Democrats don't want you to know about Social Security. First, Democrats want President Bush's proposed personal retirement accounts off the negotiation table because Congress has already spent your money. That is because, in reality, there is no Social Security Trust Fund. The Trust Fund is merely an accounting maneuver by which the government replaces your payroll taxes with IOUs to be redeemed at a later date.
