26-Year-Old Libertarian Attorney Joins Race Against Pallone in NJ’s 6th Congressional District

TRENTON, NJ – Libertarian candidate for United States House of Representatives Dorit Goikhman filed a petition last week entering her into the race against incumbent Frank Pallone.

The 26-year-old Morganville attorney and Brooklyn Law School graduate hopes to connect with a younger demographic that is traditionally targeted in a low turnout mid-term election. 

“Frank Pallone has been in office since 1988. That’s the year I was born. It’s about time that young people get some representation in Washington, because we are the ones who are suffering due to the financially irresponsible decisions of our predecessors.” 

Study from Nation's Largest Taxpayer Group Shows Individuals, Corps., Spending Nearly $300 Billion on Tax Compliance

(Alexandria, Va.) -- Complying with the nation's Tax Code now costs American families and businesses more time, money, and frustration than ever, according to the 362,000-member National Taxpayers Union's (NTU) 11th annual study of tax complexity trends. Taxpayers using any of the 1040 tax form series will spend an average of 26.4 hours and $209 completing their returns for the most current tax year, up from 25.4 hours and $185 four years ago.

As Election Day Nears, Presidential Candidates Continue Out-Promising, Out-Spending Each Other

(Alexandria, Va.) -- As John McCain and Barack Obama jockeyed for position in the race to appear "leader-like" over the economy and in upcoming debates, the latest update of the National Taxpayers Union Foundation's (NTUF) candidate cost analysis project shows that despite their different styles, the major party Presidential hopefuls have one thing in common: both their agendas would add billions more to the taxpayer's tab every year.

NTUF's fourth and final round of assigning price tags to the candidates' platforms since January 29 found that Sen. McCain (R-AZ) would increase yearly federal spending by $92.4 billion, compared to Sen. Obama's (D-IL) $293.0 billion. NTUF also released a first-time analysis of Libertarian Party candidate Bob Barr, who would instead cut annual federal spending by $200.9 billion. The studies include proposals through September 19.
