U.S. House aims for Medicare drug vote

BY Joanne Kenen

WASHINGTON, Nov 21 (Reuters) - With some crucial conservatives still vowing to defy Republican leaders and vote 'no', the U.S. House of Representatives opened debate on Friday on sweeping legislation to overhaul the Medicare health program for the elderly. The legislation, a priority of President George W. Bush as he prepares to seek re-election next year, would add a prescription drug benefit to Medicare and introduce far-reaching reforms to restrain costs and expand the role of private managed-care plans in caring for the elderly.

No conservative can be happy about giving at least $400 billion in additional taxpayer funding to an entitlement program. Many conservatives would have been willing to go along with the expansion of Medicare if they thought that the program would simultaneously be reformed in a major way. Most conservatives outside Congress don't believe that the current Medicare bill offers nearly enough reform. Accordingly, it is being opposed by the Heritage Foundation, the Cato Institute, Citizens for a Sound Economy, the Wall Street Journal, National Review, and other conservative organizations. A few brave Republican congressmen, notably Reps. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Mike Pence of Indiana, have also declared their opposition.

Another Look at the Ohio Budget Process

From the Buckeye Institute: In 2003, Ohio state officials fell prey to traditional budget solutions and raised taxes to address the state's budget deficit. Conventional thinking says lawmakers must adjust the current budget for inflation, add caseload increases, splice in a few new initiatives, and call it good for another legislative session. But there was another way. Click here for the full story

An Open Letter to Congress on the Final Medicare Prescription Drug Legislation

Dear Congress: The undersigned groups are strongly opposed to the final Medicare prescription drug legislation and urge all Members to vote "no." While there are many bad elements of this bill, among the most reckless are: - Adding to Medicare's Unfunded Liabilities. Medicare is already projected to go bankrupt. Nonetheless, this bill will unconscionably add hundreds of billions of dollars in unfunded liabilities to the program.

CSE Intercepts Senator John Edwards in Wisconsin

John Edwards came to Wisconsin, and Badger State CSE members were there to confront the Democrat Presidential candidate with some tough questions about his lack of a plan to address the coming Social Security crisis. Wiconsin Director Cameron Sholty commented from the event: "They wouldn't let us in. Two CSE members did get in, but were not allowed to ask questions, and no signs or T-shirts we allowed in. Questions were submitted before hand, and our questions about the future of Social Security were not asked. John Edwards continues to run from this critical issue."

Florida CSE Helps Crush Brevard County Tax Hike

It's only getting tougher to raise taxes in the state of Florida. That's because CSE members are on the job. Florida CSE activists in Brevard County worked tirelessly to mobilize voters in opposition to the proposed $1.3 billion tax increase. CSE's efforts were a major success, and Brevard voters defeated the increase by a resounding 65 percent to 35 "No" vote on November 4.
