Frivolous Criminal Lawsuits Reflect Need for Tort Reform

Trial lawyers are robbing decent honest Texans of their money, trust, freedom and peace of mind. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice is suffering from a shortage of guards and corrections officers, which has in turn led to dangerous working conditions. Texas, with an estimated 28,000 guards, is about 1,700 short of what the Legislature has approved. This shortage stems from the fact that Texas Department of Criminal Justice employees are among the lowest paid in the country. Instead of paying these prison guards more, the state is forced to spend money on defending frivolous lawsuits filed by prisoners.

Social Security Debate Brings Finances Into Focus

BY Robert Dodge

WASHINGTON _ Vice President Al Gore and Texas Gov. George W. Bush talk frequently and publicly about their divergent prescriptions for Social Security. Beyond their visions of Americans' retirement security, though, the debate underscores how the two men have prepared privately for their own financial futures. Gore, who opposes any equity investments involving Social Security, has never owned stocks. Bush, who wants the government to tap the market's higher returns, has had millions invested.

Empower America's Seven Principles of Social Security

1. Guarantee all promised benefits to current and near-term beneficiaries. First and foremost, we must fully protect the current Social Security system for those on it and those going on it in the next 10 to 15 years. Millions of Americans have made retirement decisions based on the contract of the current system. We absolutely must protect them. That means no benefit cuts. Promises made must be promises kept.

V.P. Gore Puts Forth Environmental Plan

Vice President Gore has proposed an environmental agenda for his administration should he win the upcoming presidential election. The cost of new spending in his program is estimated to be $150 billion. The Gore plan emphasizes "energy independence,” proposing to "free American families from dependence on big oil and foreign oil." Americans are more dependent on imported oil than at any other time in history, now importing more than 55 percent of our oil, compared with 35 percent in 1974. This percentage has continued to grow under the Clinton/Gore administration.
