Talk, Talk, Talk: The Fairness Doctrine

Talk may be cheap, but it doesn’t deserve to be hit with cheap shots.  Yet that’s exactly what some liberals want to do in response to the overwhelming success of conservative talk radio.  Led by the left-wing think tank, Center for American Progress, there’s a growing movement to reinstate the misleadingly named Fairness Doctrine, a rule that would give the government almost unlimited power over what broadcasters, especially those with conservative views, are allowed to say on air.

Permanent Internet Tax Ban Derailed on Capitol Hill

BY

Despite large bipartisan majorities in both Chambers, its looking like Congress won't even get to consider a permanent ban on discriminatory taxes on internet access. That's a shame, because the moratorium (which has been in place more or less since 1998) is a clear economic winner, and should become permanent law. Another multi-year extension just keeps uncertainty in the high-tech market. Here's a video montage from a Republican Senate press conference earlier this week calling for a permanent moratorium.

Urging my congressman to sustain the SCHIP veto

I just received an email from the Mark Udall campaign asking me to write a note to Congressman Udall (my representative) urging him to vote to override President Bush's veto of the SCHIP expansion. The campaign web site was even kind enough to provide me with a form letter and some writing tips. Needless to say, I made a few changes to their suggested letter. Here's what I sent Mark Udall...

GOP To Roll Over on S-CHIP?

Well, this isn't exactly surprising, but it's disappointing nonetheless.  House Republicans are looking for ways to get out of Bush's S-CHIP veto.

Politics of SCHIP not entirely obvious

A USA Today/Gallup poll released Monday suggests that the SCHIP veto may not be the public relations victory that advocates of socialized medicine and the president’s political rivals were hoping for.

Not Everyone Supports S-CHIP

Nancy Pelosi has decided to force a vote on overturning Bush's S-CHIP veto this week.  I'm obviously not a huge fan of the White House position on the program, but Pelosi's vote should be seen for what it is: a cheap excuse for Democrats to lambaste Bush for "denying" children health care.  Pelosi doesn't have the votes she needs to overturn the veto, and she knows it, but that doesn't mean that various liberal groups, including labor unions and others, aren't trying to bully hold-out legislators into flipping.  The SEIU and an array of liberal organizations have launched a series of ads targeted against Republicans they believe to be weak on the issue.  This New York Times story on one their targets, Maryland Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, gives a cross-section of the Rep's district, and contains one fairly heartening passage:
