"Presidents always--all of them--like to say they created 50,000 jobs last month. No president has ever created a job, except in the public sector. But presidents can take steps that keep jobs from being created, and deserve credit when they don't. And they can take steps that are helpful to job creators, and deserve credit when they do.
Did the tax cuts, at the end of the day, help the economy? Why? How? Will a change in the tax structure, or will making permanent the tax cuts, help? What impact does high federal government spending have on the economy? Where should we go on that, and why? Talk about the flow of money in America. "LW - Ms. Noonan offers her advice about what the priorities should be in the last 1,000 days of the Bush administration. She neglects to mention FairTax. The passage of the FairTax Act in his last 1,000 days would provide President Bush a grand legacy. He would be remembered as the President that unleashed the economy.Respond to:"Respond to this article" link for the articlewsj.ltrs@..., WSJ letters editoredit.features@... , op-ed to the Wall Street Journalcopies to:comments@... , White House phone 202-456-1111 / fax 202-456-2461http://www.congress.org/congressorg/issuesaction/letters/ , Letters to Leaders___________________________________________________________Democratic Leadership Council http://www.dlc.org/ndol_ci.cfm?contentid=253840&kaid=131&subid=192 "DLC: Idea of the Week: Fairer, Flatter Taxes""Tax Day for 2006 has come and gone, but the pain, cost, and confusion associated with filing federal income taxes remains fresh in the minds of millions of Americans. Despite a long series of fiscally ruinous tax cuts, the tax burden for middle-class families remains as heavy as ever. And despite relatively decent economic growth numbers, the federal budget remains deeply in deficit, with the long-term fiscal picture looking more alarming every day.Meanwhile, the Republican-controlled Congress is once again struggling to produce a budget resolution, and last year's bold talk of tax reform has subsided to less than a whisper. That's why it's important that two Democratic legislators, Rep. Rahm Emanuel of Illinois, and Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon, have stepped into the vacuum with their own sweeping plan to make the tax code fairer, simpler, and more fiscally responsible. "LW - Not much new thinking here.. tweak the code, keep K Street busy. Would that we could convince the party leadership of BOTH parties that FairTax is a non-partisan, all-American issue.Respond to:http://www.dlc.org/cobrand/contact_us.cfm Democratic Leadership Councilletters@... , The Hillletters@... , Washington Postwsj.ltrs@... , Wall Street Journalletters@... , New York Timescomments@... , White House phone 202-456-1111 / fax 202-456-2461http://www.congress.org/congressorg/issuesaction/letters/ , Letters to Leadersintheknow@...Local Editors : (email)___________________________________________________________http://www.taxfoundation.org/blog/ Excellent tax discussion sitehttp://www.taxfoundation.org/blog/show/1458.html Interesting tax statisticsCitizens Against Government Waste http://www.cagw.org/site/PageServer?pagename=reports_pigbook2006 "2006 Pig Book"LW - The Pig Book provides extra ammo for debate with those concerned about FairTax not sufficiently funding government.___________________________________________________________In The MediaRobert Novak http://www.spectator.org/dsp_article.asp?art_id=9723Lynn Julian, ME http://morningsentinel.mainetoday.com/view/letters/2649637.shtmlJeffrey Locke, KS http://www.kansas.com/mld/kansas/news/editorial/14400379.htmJennifer Carter, KS op-ed in the Wichita Eagle.
