Activist Handbook 2000: Medicare Reform and Prescription Drugs

Medicare Reform and Prescription Drugs Why CSE Cares The Issue: CSE believes that health care services are products that are best allocated through the decisions of individuals in the private marketplace. Health care services are, at times, critically important, and a market-based system offers the best chance to expand choices and control costs: government control of health care is typically inequitable, inefficient and irrational. Medicare, which provides health care to America’s elderly and disabled, is a case in point. The Problem:

Activist Handbook 2000: Personal Retirement Accounts

Personal Retirement Accounts Why CSE Cares There are twin crises facing the Social Security system, and our national political leaders cannot hide from this reality: The first crisis is financial. If nothing is done, the system will begin running cash deficits in just 15 years and will need to be bailed out with $11.3 trillion worth of new income taxes or government borrowing to pay its bills. The program’s long-term liabilities are a whopping $22 trillion - six times today’s national debt.

Halifax taxpayer unrest may lead to creating citizen group

Cairns says, "It’s inevitable" ROANOKE RAPIDS – "Merchants are mad as hell," said one car dealer describing the feelings by him and other businessmen toward Halifax County Commissioners having raised property taxes once again. Whereas the word out of County Manager Charles Archer’s office is that taxes under his regime have been raised but once, many are telling the newspaper that raising the property tax rate per $100 valuation by $.085, coupled with not lowering the rate last year after a revaluation, is the same as raising taxes twice.

Real-Life ‘Runaway Jury’ Sets New Record

After less than five hours of deliberations, a Florida jury has shattered all records for punitive damages awards. "This jury’s $145 billion award, nearly 30 times the previous record, even outdistanced a fictional award in John Grisham’s novel ‘The Runaway Jury,’" said Paul Beckner, President of Citizens for a Sound Economy. In the Grisham novel about smokers suing tobacco companies, punitive damages were awarded in the amount of $400 million on top of compensatory damages of $2 million.

CSE applauds Senate killing the "Death Tax"

CSE today praised the Senate for passing H.R. 8, "The Death Tax Elimination Act." "Repealing the Death Tax is the right thing to do for American family farms, businesses and the New Economy," said Citizens for a Sound Economy President Paul Beckner. "It is also the right thing to do to protect American values." Earlier this month, Mr. Beckner sent a letter to House members urging support of this important legislation. Today, nine Senate Democrats signed on with Republicans to pass the bill 59-39.
