Tell Your Representative to Repeal the Death Tax

The ink has yet to dry on Bill Clinton’s veto of Congress’s bill to eliminate the marriage penalty and now he has vetoed H.R. 8, “The Death Tax Elimination Act,” which would have gradually eliminated the Death Tax over the next 10 years. H.R. 8 is scheduled on the House floor for an override vote on September 7th. Against the tide of bi-partisan support in Congress to eliminate the Death Tax, the administration keeps repeating the stale class-warfare rhetoric that these tax cuts will “benefit the rich.”

Issue Analysis 108 - The Consumer Benefits of Civil Justice Reform in Texas

Opponents of civil justice reform argue that reform creates little, if any, benefit for consumers. A Citizens for a Sound Economy study indicates several positive and direct consumer benefits attributable to civil justice reform. Specifically, the civil justice reforms passed in Texas created nearly 200,000 jobs while providing savings to the typical Texas household of $1,078 through lower prices and increased total personal income.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in tech News: A Letter to The Wall Street Journal

August 31, 2000 To the Editor: Your August 31st editorial, “Tire-Kicking on the Web,” correctly questions District Court Judge Sam Spark’s judgment in the Texas case involving online car sales. His decision mocks the commerce clause and harms consumers. However, the editorial missed a more interesting question. Can this type of protectionism survive in a wired economy?

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Consumers in Captivity: Judge Patel's Ruling Deserves Closer Scrutiny

Yesterday, many influential technology and telecommunication trade associations filed “friend of the court” briefs pursuant to the RIAA v. Napster copyright infringement case that is currently before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Although the authors of the briefs are quick to distance themselves from Napster, they are strongly critical of Judge Marilyn Patel’s ruling that would have shut down the file-sharing Website.

STAND FIRM AGAINST FRIVOLOUS LAWSUITS

BY Slade O'Brien

In response to Charley Reese's column "In tort-reform fight, don't assume lawyers are always the bad guys": Reese is right when he states, "The lone individual or family would have no chance for justice against corporate giants without the effort of the trial lawyers. In these cases lawyers are the heroes." However, in today's legal environment, there are far too many villains parading as heroes. And, unfortunately, the real legal heroes are doing little if anything to end this charade.

Tech Bytes – Tid Bits in Tech News: Is Corporate Support of Privacy Legislation a Fatal Attraction?

Carly Fiorina made headlines when she became the first woman to head a multibillion-dollar, multinational, technology company. Speaking at a technology conference earlier this week, the CEO of Hewlett-Packard (HP) captured the spotlight again when she openly called for government-backed privacy standards. That the crowd she was speaking to – Members of Congress, administration officials, business executives and opinion leaders – gave her a standing ovation shows just how widespread support for this dangerous idea has become.
