William J. Bennett Comments on Sen. Lieberman's 'Three R's' Bill

Fifteen years ago, when I was named Secretary of Education by President Ronald Reagan, "A Nation at Risk" had just evaluated the performance of the American school system, and reported that the state of our schools was not only a threat to kids but to the future of our nation. In response, America has tried a variety of reforms at the state level. Most notably and most recently, we have embraced (in theory, at least) the idea of high standards and accountability. Almost every state in the union now has standards in reading and math, and twenty-six have instituted exit exams for high school. The slight increases in student performance, seen in the National Assessment of Educational Progress in the late 1990’s, reflects some success on these fronts.

Trade Tariffs: The Next Generation

This week the authorities responsible for public safety in Washington, D.C. have been on high alert. No one wants a repeat performance of last year’s Seattle protests, looting, and vandalism. At issue is a difficult-to-understand, but powerful, fear of “globalization.” The dominant thread in the protests against globalization is America’s international trade relationships. Next month, Congress is expected to vote on legislation to make our trade relationship with China normal – to make it match our relationship with other countries.

EXPAND THE e-CONOMY

America needs to unleash the full potential of the high-tech economy for consumers by breaking down obsolete government barriers. The high-tech industry is responsible for 44 percent of domestic economic growth since 1994. To keep this engine of growth moving, we must remove the heavy hand of government regulation and taxes. That is why CSE believes we must keep the Internet free from taxation.

Internet Taxes Bad for E-conomy

Today, Citizens for a Sound Economy praised the GOP for its “E-Contract 2000,” a pledge to support a tax-free Internet. The pledge sends a strong message to consumers that legislators intend to keep the Internet free from the heavy-hand of government taxation. In March, CSE launched an online petition campaign to permanently ban taxation of the Internet. This campaign sends a strong message to elected officials throughout the country that American consumers want the Internet free from taxation.
