- Budget Negotiations - 626 words
Budget Negotiations -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------ In the midst of the current budget negotiations, there is one neglected question worth asking: what does the public really want? Tax cuts? Paying down the national debt? More spending? If so, more spending on what? The available polling data, analyzed in this report, helps answer these questions. Does the public want to cut taxes? All else equal, of course the public wants tax cuts. But in the real world, all else is generally not equal -- cutting taxes involves giving up something else that might be done with the government's resources. When the tradeoffs are made explicit, cutting taxes doe ...

- Idaho Legislature 2000 Project - 1,825 words
Idaho Legislature 2000 Project The Idaho Legislature held its first session in 1890. At that time the legislature was composed of 18 senators and 36 representatives.

Presidential Election 2000 As generations pass, and times change, the people of the United States change as well.
