Capitol Comment 275 - Clinton Has It Backward: More Telephone Service Would Result From Fewer Taxes, Not New Taxes

Amid a flurry of travel last month, President Clinton – flanked by two commissioners from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – announced new programs to help poor Americans get online. Unfortunately, his latest proposal will only trap the poorest of American consumers into yesterday’s technologies. Clinton announced a $17 million – or about 3 percent – increase to the federal Lifeline1 program, a telephone service subsidy for poor Americans.

Testimony of Scott A. Hodge Before the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight of Government Manageme

Mr. Chairman and Members of the Committee, thank you for inviting me here today to discuss the importance of government reform and the need to provide American taxpayers an honest accounting of government activity. My name is Scott A. Hodge, and I am the director of tax and budget policy at Citizens for a Sound Economy Foundation (CSE Foundation), a 250,000-member nonpartisan, non-profit consumer advocacy group that recruits, educates, trains, and mobilizes hundreds of thousands of volunteer activists to fight for less government, lower taxes, and more freedom.1

Microsoft Remedies Bad for Consumers

Later this afternoon, lawyers from the federal government and 19 states are expected to file their proposed remedies in the Microsoft antitrust case. Throughout the case, Judge Penfield Jackson has sided with the government lawyers and against innovation, so it is likely that their proposal will form the basis of Judge Jackson's remedies in the coming months. Unfortunately, these lawyers falsely believe that splitting Microsoft apart would aid competition and benefit consumers. In reality, the likely outcome of government interference would be expensive and, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ), would take years of legal wrangling.

Capitol Comment 274 - It's the New New Economy, Stupid!

In 1992, Bill Clinton coasted into the White House on a simple message: It's the economy, Stupid. During his two terms in the White House, we saw a communications revolution that gave birth to the "New Economy." As he prepares to leave office, President Clinton's legacy could be described as the beginning of the "New New Economy." Government lawyers and their private-sector trial-lawyer counterparts are attempting to replace engineers and designers as the driving force in the technology sector.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Regulation Through Litigation is Ground Zero for Assault on Consumers

Led by Assistant Attorney General Joel Klein, today officials from the Department of Justice will brief members of the White House staff on the latest version of the government attack on Microsoft. Klein summarized the Clinton-Gore administration’s view when he said that this case "sets the ground rules for enforcement in the information age." Innovation and competition are out. Litigation and regulation are in.

Capitol Comment 288 - Universal Service Subsidies Constrain Local Telephone Competition

For most of this century, regulators and legislators have considered cheap local phone service akin to a basic human right, nearly as important as free speech itself. Phone companies cashed in on this political preference by promising “affordable” service for all in exchange for monopolies. But now that competition in local service is legal, new competitors in the residential market find themselves up against established firms that are required by regulation to sell service at prices well below cost.
