Obama' Tax Hikes... |

EVEN HIS PROPONENTS NOW ACKNOWLEDGE THAT
OBAMA’S BUDGET COULD LEAD TO BIG TAX INCREASES
The Washington Post is left-wing, but it has correctly
described what the Obama budget will cost taxpayers. In an
editorial (The Budget Gimmick’s Return, March 26, 2009)
referring to attempts by the House and Senate budget committees
to disguise the size of future deficits, the Post says
"Like Mr. Obama, the Democrats in Congress want to spend more on
education, energy and other popular programs. Like Mr. Obama,
they don’t want to level with voters about the need to pay for
such programs through increased taxes."
On the same day’s op-ed page, Alice Rivlin (Clinton’s
Director of the Office of Management and Budget) points out that
the Obama taxes on energy use and charitable donations "will not
fully compensate for the rising spending" and goes on to
recommend tax increases on those with incomes below $250,000.
Just above her column, E. J. Dionne says that Obama should "come
right out and say we’ll need broad-based tax increases", but
recognizes that such honesty "would be suicidal" politically.
President Obama was elected by telling Americans almost all
of them would receive a bigger tax cut from him than from John

indirectly through inflation that might exceed even that of the

FAIRNESS DOCTRINE MEANS CENSORSHIP
Americans overwhelmingly agree that restoration of the
"Fairness Doctrine" would be a form of censorship, according to
a poll conducted by The Conservative Caucus (TCC).
Ninety-four percent described the Fairness Doctrine as a
"very serious threat" to freedom of speech, and 92% believed it
would force many radio stations to cancel conservative talk
shows. Only 2% thought that Congressional supporters were
honestly concerned with fairness, while 98% said that the
purpose was to "shut down conservative radio".
Earlier this month, an attempt to amend the omnibus
appropriations act to prohibit restoration of the Fairness
Doctrine was defeated in the Senate, 50-47.
The Fairness Doctrine, originally adopted with the stated
intention of regulating radio and TV in order to provide
balanced coverage, was revoked by the Federal Communications
Commission during the Reagan administration on free speech
The poll was conducted by mail during January and February
with about 6,000 responses.
The Conservative Caucus (TCC) is a grass roots action
organization, formed in 1974. It was active in defeating the
SALT II Treaty, repealing the Catastrophic Coverage Act,
blocking the Clinton health-care takeover, and impeaching

POLL SHOWS STRONG SUPPORT FOR ENGLISH AS THE
OFFICIAL AMERICAN LANGUAGE
Americans want English to be the nation’s official language
according to a poll conducted by The Conservative Caucus
Foundation (TCCF). Ninety-nine percent of those responding to
the poll supported making English the official language.
There was also 96% support for revoking Executive Order 13166
(issued by President Clinton) which required Federal, state, and
local government agencies to conduct more of their business in
other languages. Ninety-nine percent agreed that it is
"patriotic and for the good of all immigrants to learn our
nation’s unifying language."
The tax burden of illegal immigrants who do not speak English
was a concern to 99%, and 99% opposed continuing to provide
government forms in a language other than English.
The poll was conducted by mail during early 2009 and received
about 3,000 responses.
The Conservative Caucus Foundation (TCCF), founded in1976,
has published studies on many public policy issues, including
some concerning Red China, the Panama Canal, the START treaties,
