More Leftist Bias From CBS, Dems Support Fraud Voter And Congressional Pay Raise

The Dan Rather fake National Guard documents story is still the leading example of how Old Media uses its broadcast power to influence elections on behalf of the left. But CBS hasn’t learned the lesson about being fair and objective. Newsbusters has a story about how CBS newsreaders fell all over themselves to criticize the income tax proposals from the GOP candidate pool, but gave no criticism at all for proposals coming from the Dems.

From the article:

Thursday’s CBS Evening News took a look at the economic and tax plans for some of the candidates from both parties, but, while Democratic plans were reported without any references to criticism, correpondent Chip Reid took jabs at Republican tax cut plans, labeling that of Mitt Romney, who “made a fortune in business,” as being “right out of the playbooks of Ronald Reagan and George Bush.” Reid further suggested that Mike Huckabee’s plan for a national sales tax contradicts his “populist” message of “protecting the middle class,” as the CBS correspondent neglected to mention that Huckabee’s plan would also abolish the federal income tax and provide rebates to those with lower incomes.

Reid went on to report economic plans of Democrats Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards without mentioning any potential down sides to raising the minimum wage or to raising taxes on the wealthy. Reid: “The Democrats’ economic game plan is dramatically different. … They say what’s needed is help for the middle class, not for corporations and the wealthy.”

Reid never mentions the fact that raising taxes depresses an economy and causes a loss of jobs due to inadequate capital for job creation. He also never mentions the fact that ultimately, all tax hikes are paid for by the middle class. This is typical of a leftist-socialist who doesn’t understand the dynamics of a robust economy.

CBS is apparently stumping for the Dems by witholding crucial information about the effects increased taxes will have on our economy while simultaneously handing out standard leftist innuendo about tax cuts.

CBS Takes Jabs At GOP Tax Plans, Reports Dem Plans Without Criticism

Neal Boortz has an interesting tidbit about the Dem’s poster child for striking down Indiana’s Voter ID law. It seems that 72-year-old Faye Buis-Ewing is in violation of the law when it comes to voting.

According to Nealz Newz:

She has become a “poster child” for the disenfranchised voter that will be protected under a voting system with no ID requirements. But now we’ve discovered one minor problem. Not only is Faye registered to vote, but she is registered in two different states. She claims two states as her primary residence. She received a homestead exemption on her property taxes … in two different states. In other words, the leftist poster girl for their fight against voter identification laws is a criminal. What a shame.

Faye could not only vote, but she could technically vote more than the average citizen registered in only one state! She explains that she and her husband “winter in Florida and summer in Indiana.” Isn’t that sweet? She says that she has never voted in Florida, but she has a Florida driver’s license. And when she went to vote in Indiana in November 2006 with her Florida driver’s license, they, logically, did not accept it. Doesn’t seem like rocket science to me! But hey, this is the average voter we are speaking of.

Now the League of Women Voters (I’m sure they are my biggest fans) say this experience is exactly the reason the law should be changed. No, ladies …. That is exactly the reason why the law should be upheld! I’ll bet dollars to doughnuts that Faye is voting for Hillary Clinton. Maybe twice.

Now, I’ll bet that if it were the Republicans trying to do away with the Indiana law, this story would be all over Old Media.

Voter ID Law

Some people around the country are starting to worry about their employment propects due to a deteriorating economy. But members of Congress are above all of that. Despite a record low approval rating, they are getting a $4000 pay raise.

From the Associated Press:

Lawmakers in 2008 will receive salaries of $169,300, a boost of $4,100 over the pay they have lived with since January 2006.

That 2.5 percent increase is mirrored by similar raises for associate justices of the Supreme Court, who will see their pay go from $203,000 to $208,100, and Chief Justice John Roberts, whose pay will rise to $217,400 from $212,100.

The salary figures were published in Tuesday’s edition of the Federal Register.

Last year was the first since 1999, when the pay was $136,700, that members of Congress did not receive a cost-of-living allowance raise along with other federal employees. Democrats, newly elected to the majority, had vowed to block an increase in their paychecks until Congress raised the minimum wage.

With the minimum wage increase accomplished last year, House Democratic leaders joined with their Republican counterparts to oppose a procedural vote to bring the COLA issue to the floor, leaving the way clear for their automatic raise.

Interesting that they do more to put people out of work than any other group in the nation, and they get a pay raise for it.
