Taxpayers Revolt (tags)

Pelosi Pushed Book, While Taxpayers Revolted Over Bailout (tags)
When the Congress was debating the $700 billion bailout of the greedy bankers on Wall St., an overconfident Speaker Nancy Pelosi was in Baltimore hawking her book, “Know Your Power.” On Sept. 29, 2008, the House of Representatives, responding to a taxpayers’ revolt, rejected the Bush-Cheney Gang’s bailout scheme. Speaker Peolsi, in her library spiel, conveyed a false sense of security about the grim economic situation facing the nation.

The Fed, AIG, Congress, Third Party Candidates and the Debt (tags)
The Fed,” William Greider said, “decides who shall prosper and who shall fail.” American International Group (AIG), Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Bear Stearns, all private entities, will be bailed out by the taxpayers. Third Party candidates want an audit and investigation of “The Fed,” an unelected clique. “The Fed,” and the Treasury Dept., are currently submitting a Mother of All Bailout schemes to the Congress. It may cost the public $1 trillion!

No more pork for crooked politicians? Well not really! (tags)
By a 431-0 vote, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives has approved a measure that would strip lawmakers of their congressional pensions for criminal convictions such as bribery, lying under oath and fraud. That may sound tough and impressive, but it's more show than substance, as usual.
The government pays these criminals rather well (tags)
At least 20 former lawmakers convicted of crimes are eligible for taxpayer-funded pensions, some as high as $125,000 a year
Future Tax Shock (tags)

U.S. Aid to the Terror State of Israel (tags)
It would be interesting to know how many of those American taxpayers believe they and their families have received as much from the U.S. Treasury as has everyone who has chosen to become a citizen of Israel. But it's a question that will never occur to the American public because, so long as America's mainstream media, Congress and president maintain their pact of silence, few Americans will ever know the true cost of Israel to U.S. taxpayers.
Death Penalty, $250 Million Tax Burden (tags)
California taxpayers will spend an average of $200 to over $275 million for each prisoner on death row; and most of that cost is related to the high cost of capital trials, housing the death row inmate, the high cost for defense counsel and the tens of millions required to appeal convictions.

Newport Beach Congressman Chris Cox is chair of the Homeland Security Committee in congress. Yet, Cox has never served one day in the military.

Taxes, taxes, taxes: High on the Bush agenda (tags)
It has been written that the more things change, the more they are the same. And that certainly holds true when it comes to battles over taxes. True, the powdered wigs of James Madison’s time are gone. And yes, George Bush has replaced "Teddy" Roosevelt. But the issues are the same – who pays and how much.

Incest and Corruption, Texas Style (tags)
Think of it this way: The Whitewater real estate deal involved a total investment of about $200,000…. Whitewater itself never cost the taxpayers a dime, but the demise of Jim McDougal's Madison Guaranty S&L reportedly cost the taxpayers maybe $65 million. Now Republicans are reminding us what a real financial scandal looks like. With the value of its stock plunging from $94 a share to 26 cents, the cost of the Enron implosion is roughly ONE THOUSAND TIMES greater than McDougal's finagling. It'll be interesting to see if it receives ten percent of the attention.
