West Virginia Judge Loses After Opposing Legal Reform

On November 3, 2004, West Virginia voters replaced Justice Warren McGraw on the state Supreme Court Tuesday with Brent Benjamin. The race centered on lawsuit abuse and McGraw's connections to trial lawyers, as well as his soft-on-crime record. Benjamin is elected for a 12 year term. According to The Charleston Gazzette: "The 47-year-old Charleston lawyer [Benjamin] is not tied to labor unions and plaintiffs’ lawyers as McGraw was. During the election, his opponents said he would rule for Blankenship and other businessmen who helped his cause.

Groups seek to reinstate cigarette tax that voters rejected

BY BRAD CAIN

SALEM, Ore. - Health care industry and anti-smoking groups plan to seek reinstatement of a 10-cent-a-pack cigarette tax that was snuffed out when voters rejected an $800 million tax hike earlier this year. The groups say raising the cigarette tax would discourage smoking among young people by making cigarettes more expensive and provide more money for health clinics for low-income people. But the move is likely to encounter strong resistance from House Republicans who say Oregonians have made it clear they don't want higher taxes.

Remarks as Prepared for Majority Leader Bill Frist, MD The Federalist Society 2004 National Convention Wardman Park Marriott Hotel November 11, 2004 Thank you all for that warm welcome. You’ve succeeded at an almost impossible task: you’ve put a doctor at ease in a room filled with a thousand lawyers. I take great pride in being a citizen legislator -- someone who sets aside a career for a period of time to serve in public office.

Death to the tax code?

This piece originally appeared in the New York Daily News. During the presidential campaign, President Bush unveiled a bold second-term economic agenda that included fundamental tax reform. Shortly thereafter, Alan Murray wrote in The Wall Street Journal that the Bush administration was taking another page from the Gipper's playbook — tax cuts in the first term, tax reform in the second.
