At a glance: Four key issues


House majority may push for changes in Patriot Act

There could be a showdown on several fronts. President Bush vowed the election won’t change his course in Iraq, Democrats want change. Democrats have criticized president on torture, eavesdropping and Patriot Act. Will they push for changes?


Compromise could show parties can work together

Perhaps a piecemeal approach could expand opportunities. Both parties have discussed allowing small businesses to combine employees into larger pools to bring down costs of providing care. May be a compromise both parties can point to for proof of action.


Incoming Speaker Pelosi says hike near top of agenda

House Democratic candidates promised an increase after 10 years of $5.15 an hour. Control of the House helps but they must get the president on board to avoid a veto the new, narrow majority may not be able to override.


Will Democrats try to up the ante for the rich?

Republicans warned that Democrats would raise taxes if they assumed control on Capitol Hill. How hard Democrats fight to tie lower middle-income taxes to higher taxes on the rich remains to be seen. Voters tend to punish the party that raises taxes.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
