Support HR 1041 to Sunset the Current Tax Code

Talk is cheap! If you want Congress to quit talking about tax reform and start moving us toward a new tax code that is simple, low, fair, and honest, Citizens for a Sound Economy needs your help. On April 13th, the U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on H.R. 1041, "The Date Certain Tax Code Replacement Act." This bill, sponsored by Rep. Steve Largent (R-OK), would force politicians to quit talking about tax reform and really take action by giving them a deadline of December 31, 2002 to agree to a new system.

Sample Letter to the Editor

Dear Congressman, What is it with Washington? As Tax Day approaches on April 15th , we're once again reminded that politicians are doing nothing about the IRS tax code with its 44,000 pages, 5.5 million words, and 721 different forms. What's worse, government auditors reported recently that they could not reconcile the IRS's own books and that the IRS wasn't abiding by legally required accounting procedures. And the Clinton administration wants to give the IRS a $769 million increase in its budget to hire more auditors.

What is Missing From the News?

Many news outlets carried yesterday’s story of a merger between the wireless telephone service of Bell South and SBC. The two companies are best known for local telephone service. Bell South’s service is in the southeast and SBC’s service is across portions of the Midwest and Southwest. Combined, the new wireless telephone venture would be the second largest in the country and would be able to offer service to approximately 70 percent of the population. The leading wireless carrier – Verizon – can offer service to approximately 90 percent of the population.

Telecommunications Taxes Widen the Digital Divide

Few Americans would disagree that access to the Internet is crucial to success in the digital economy. Given this fact, the digital divide is certainly worthy of the recent attention focused on it by elected officials. Unfortunately, many government officials fail to recognize that taxes and regulations raise costs and limit the ability of consumers to afford online services. The politician's view of the Internet and the telephone as another means to raise taxes works against their goal of eliminating the digital divide.

Outdated Laws Can't Keep Pace With Today's Technology

Two stories have dominated the news this week: Microsoft and the stock market. Monday evening a federal judge ruled against Microsoft in a landmark antitrust lawsuit. Wall Street went on a wild ride Tuesday, after Monday’s record losses on the Nasdaq, the largest fluctuations in market value were recorded. This volatility has been attributed to a rumored interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve and to squeamishness with technology investments after the Microsoft judgment.

Capitol Comment 273 - Class Action Lawsuits: We Are All Victims Now

Not everyone is getting rich through tech stocks these days. There is a large group of people becoming wealthy through another hot investment: the state-based class action lawsuit. Unfortunately, it is the trial lawyers who reap huge benefits, while plaintiffs often receive only coupons. The Class Action Fairness Act of 1999 (S. 353) is a positive step towards reining in frivolous class action lawsuits and the trial lawyers who encourage them.

CSE responds to Judge Jackson's Conclusions of Law

Earlier today, the presiding judge in the government's antitrust lawsuit against Microsoft issued an opinion known as the "conclusions of law." Regrettably, U.S. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson paints a picture of Microsoft that is far from reality. Labeling the company a monopoly, he said that Microsoft "maintained its monopoly power by anticompetitive means" and attempted to monopolize the Web browser market. The judge also ruled that Microsoft violated another section of the law by "unlawfully tying its Web browser to its operating system" and could be sued under state anti-competition laws. In reality, Microsoft's behavior is the lawful byproduct of the most competitive marketplace in the world. The government's actions through this case threaten to limit that competition and the innovation and consumer benefits that come from it.
