Runaway Train

Michael Tanner of the Cato Institute recently stated that, arguing over the precise date when Social Security will go belly up is like strolling on the deck of the Titanic, and debating whether you're going to the bottom in 30 minutes or an hour. Like Social Security, the federal Railroad Retirement System (RRS) has struck a demographic iceberg and is sinking; the only question is, how long will it take to sink?

Legislature Poised to Raise Taxes

Last week, the North Carolina legislature took a major step toward a billion dollar tax increase. The House Finance Committee approved a tax package that will increase sales taxes, income taxes, and other taxes. This bill will raise $467 million in taxes for the state and local governments this year and $759 million next year. North Carolina Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) Director Jonathan Hill issued the following statement in response to the legislature’s actions:

2001 Republican Picnic Cancelled

Reed Davis, chairman of the King County Republican Party, reluctantly announced that the 2001 Republican Picnic, originally scheduled for September 8, 2001, has been cancelled. The event was to be held on Saturday, September 8th at the King County Fairgrounds in Enumclaw, WA from 11:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. "In the past several weeks, we've had issues confirming our featured speaker, who had cancelled his participation after several months of negotiations," stated Reed Davis, chairman of the King County Republican Party. "We were very fortunate to have Sean Hannity offer to step up and serve as our featured speaker, but the window to get everything together in time simply isn't enough to put together a great event." Conservative TV personality Sean Hannity of FOX News "Hannity and Colmes," and WABC's "The Sean Hannity Show," had been recently confirmed to serve as this year's featured guest. Last year's picnic with featured speaker Rush Limbaugh drew in over 42,000 attendees. "At this time, the organizing committee and I both feel that instead of rushing to put together an 'okay' event, we should hold off until we can put together an event that we're really proud of," continued Davis. "With the Seattle Mayor's race, King County Council race, control of Washington's House of Representatives up for grabs and the 2002 elections just over a year away, it is still crucial that Republicans come together and begin working to win these races." "With our 2001 nominating convention coming up, we will have an opportunity to begin that process very soon," concluded Davis. "I would like to extend a special thanks to Sean Hannity and this year's sponsors, including: Friends of Jennifer Dunn, Citizens for a Sound Economy and Holland America Cruise Line, for their support and participation in this year's event." The King County Republican Party will hold a nominating convention on Saturday, September 15th, 2001 at the Performing Arts Center in Auburn, WA.

A Message of Thanks for Helms

BY John Wagner

A national advocacy group is collecting signatures for a thank-you card it plans to present to retiring U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms of North Carolina. The group, Citizens for a Sound Economy, started circulating an e-mail message about the effort this week. In it, Helms' former Republican colleague, Lauch Faircloth, encourages recipients to send in their names and forward the message to friends and family. Chuck Fuller, the group's vice president for public affairs, said his organization champions lower taxes, less government and more freedom.

Final Push From Allies of Tax Plan

BY Amy Gardner

Gov. Mike Easley stepped up his effort to end the state's budget crisis Friday, throwing himself behind a tax package that goes to the House floor next week and urging his supporters to do the same. Opponents of a tax increase, meanwhile, launched their own campaign to defeat the proposal, sending out e-mail messages and saying that Easley and other Democrats do not have enough votes in the House.
