CSE Activists Join Gov. Bush At Unveiling of Social Security Reform Plan

On Monday, May 15, 2000, California CSE Director Mike Vallante and three of California CSE’s best activists joined Republican presidential candidate Gov. George W. Bush in Rancho Cucamonga, California as he unveiled his plan to reform Social Security. CSE activist Gerald Pummel is interviewed by local media. A key component of his proposal would allow younger workers to divert a portion of their Social Security FICA taxes into a Personal Retirement Account, while preserving the nation’s commitment to today’s retirees and near retirees.

Sugar Bailout at Odds with Everglades Restoration

Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) today denounced the Department of Agriculture’s plan to bail out big sugar companies. Said Patrick Burns, Director of Environmental Policy at CSE, “This is one of the most outrageous cases of corporate welfare we’ve seen in some time. What’s worse, it’s welfare that will continue the degradation of one of America’s most valued national treasures - the Florida Everglades.”

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: This Week We Remember the Maine – Every Month We Pay the Price

In 1898 the United States entered a brief war with Spain. It lasted less than one year. Theodore Roosevelt and the Rough Riders were catapulted to national fame for their victories over the Spanish Army, and the United States emerged victorious with control over much of what is now Central America. To fund this war effort, President McKinley implemented a luxury tax on a new invention – the telephone. Today, Americans may remember the Spanish-American War when they think of Teddy Roosevelt or hear the expression "Remember the Maine." All Americans should remember it when they pay their monthly telephone bill.

Capitol Comment 277 - Where Do Unions and Government Workers Invest Their Pension Funds?

Many of the major unions in the United States have joined Vice President Al Gore in a well-orchestrated campaign against Governor George W. Bush’s proposal to allow workers to invest a portion of their Social Security taxes in personal retirement accounts that they control. Like Gore, the union bosses say that personal retirement accounts will undermine Social Security and put workers’ retirement “at risk” to the uncertainties of the stock market.

Sierra Club Misinformation on Toxic Releases

On May 11, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its newest Toxic Release Inventory (TRI), which covers the 1998 reporting year. The Sierra Club quickly issued a press release claiming that, according to the report, “Texas has the nation’s most toxic air.” “Although the Sierra Club may not like it, the TRI shows no such thing,” said Patrick Burns, Director of Environmental Policy at Citizens for a Sound Economy. “In fact, according to the TRI, Texas’ air emissions are almost 25 percent below the number one state, Ohio.”

Issue Analysis 103 - This Is Not Insurance Reform: An Update On National Efforts To Codify Third-Party ‘Bad Faith’ Liability

An overwhelming majority of Californians in that state’s March 7th balloting rejected Proposition 30, a proposal that would have restored third-party "bad faith" liability claims against insurance companies as a cause of action in civil lawsuits. This proposal, and others like it around the country, would allow accident victims to sue the insurance companies of the persons allegedly responsible for their injuries, not just the parties at fault. The crux of such a suit against an insurance company has no relation to the underlying injury claim. Rather, "bad faith" claims are based upon the actions of the insurance company, whether real or perceived, after the accident during the settlement process.

On May 11, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its newest Toxic Release Inventory (TRI), which covers the 1998 reporting year. Vice President Al Gore was quick to use the report to launch an attack on Texas, posting on his web site that the TRI showed Texas as being “the nation’s air-pollution leader.” “The TRI report shows no such thing,” said Patrick Burns, Director of Environmental Policy at Citizens for a Sound Economy. “In fact, according to the TRI, Texas’ air emissions are almost 25 percent below the number one state, Ohio.

Stock Market Roulette or Snobbery?

Copley News Service, 5/12/2000 One of the great debates of our time is whether it is possible for America to become a shareholder democracy in which all workers can own assets and build wealth for their retirement years, or whether they will have to settle for the meager rate of return they presently can expect from Social Security. Will workers be permitted to invest at least a portion of their payroll tax contributions into personal retirement accounts, or will they be forced to pay higher taxes to keep Social Security afloat?
