The resulting document was therefore hedged in many ways. The Republicans say that these rules are no impediment to cutting the capital-gains tax, since the cut will stimulate so much new growth that the government will collect more revenue at lower tax rates. Yet their contract gives no indication of where even a small share of the trillion dollars necessary to close the gap might come from. The Contract contains one other important budgetary proposal, its recommendation of cuts in the capital-gains tax. Before this thick book, the standard texts were volumes published in the 70s. The Contract calls for a vote soon after the new Congress convenes on two competing schemes for term limits.

For many journalists, EEC membership was still an intriguing novelty. To cynics they may seem Orwellian--the plan to cut capital gains taxes by 50 percent is called the "Job Creation and Wage Enhancement Act"--but they reflect the determination of Gingrich-era Republicans to position themselves as forward-thinkers, in contrast to stodgy old Democrats. Yet their contract gives no indication of where even a small share of the trillion dollars necessary to close the gap might come from. For instance, everyone knows that the top 1 percent of Americans increased its share of US wealth and income during the s. Congress's habit of enacting "unfunded mandates" has been the major strain on state budgets in the last decade.

Most economists believe that in the long run these reductions may actually increase tariff revenue. A time line, with profiles and images of all presidents and first ladies; an art gallery; articles from the WHHA journal; and more. This reflected the general unpopularity of the Major government at the time. Legislative Branch From the Library of Congress, a collection of internal and external links to information relating to the legislative branch of government. But so far the debate about the Contract's capital-gains clause has not addressed its blatant unfairness. Very interesting document in the early history of the development of parliamentary rule in England.

But Phillips says that in the long run each trend reinforces the other. Also of note was the stunning performance of the Green Party. For the first time in modern US history, stock prices decoupled from the real economy, enabling the Dow Jones industrial average to keep setting records even as employees' real wages kept declining.

Senate provides extensive information about members, legislation, current activities, and the history of the body. Under these rules, if Congress does something to reduce federal revenue, through a tax cut or other change, it has to find some offsetting way to raise more money or cut other expenditures.

At first glance that title might seem a little contradictory. She says that George Stephanopoulos felt that he had been publicly humiliated when David Gergen was brought in to "save" the administration's communications effort five months into Bill Clinton's term.

As a regular contributor to both National Review and the Wall Street Journal, I can only dream of causing such an international incident — speaking engagements by the dozens would await me.

The main objection to "loser pays" is that it would discourage some otherwise deserving suits, since poor plaintiffs would be afraid of financial ruin if they lost.

This was the first time since that this had happened to the Conservatives in any nationwide election. Most welfare analysts believe that "workfare" could possibly bring about changes in a culture of welfare dependency, but all experts say that it would be more expensive to administer than today's plan, not least because it entails large expenditures to find, provide, and supervise jobs.

The ANC won a majority in seven provincial legislatures. Presumably the Republicans don't agree--if they did, why would their Contract include the Balanced Budget Amendment? Social Security is one of the two great middle-class entitlements the other is the tax deduction for mortgage-interest payments.

The main device for doing so has been to include a portion of Social Security benefits in the taxable income of retirees. The cuts would come in two forms: a reduction by half in the tax rate itself, and an adjustment of any capital gains to offset the effects of inflation.

Similarly, once the referendum campaign got under way, the consequences for British sovereignty of further integration into Europe were not covered up, as Brexiters often insist. Depending on the precise details of the system, Labour would probably have won 40 seats or so under a proportional representation system.
