Statement of Kent Lassman Before the Subcommittee on Telecommunications, Trade, and Consumer Protection, U.S. House of Represent

"I am for those means which will give the greatest good to the greatest number." – Abraham Lincoln, February 12, 1861 Introduction Mr. Chairman, and members of the Committee, thank you for the opportunity to share my views on H.R. 3011 and H.R. 3022 – the Truth in Telephone Billing Act, and the Rest of the Truth in Telephone Billing Act. Both pieces of proposed legislation share a single attribute. Namely, public policy should not impede the flow of information so that consumers can make the best decisions possible.

Pull the Plug on Unauthorized Spending

Republican House and Senate leaders are under tremendous pressure from Bill Clinton and many of their colleagues to bust the discretionary spending caps established by the 1997 balanced budget agreement. But the leadership has a weapon that, if they are willing to use it, could undermine many of Clinton’s pet initiatives while tempering the spending frenzy of their colleagues. All the leadership needs to do is enforce the congressional rules that prohibit spending money on unauthorized programs.

Social Promotion

As printed in Investor's Business Daily, 03/08/2000 On Dec. 18 President Clinton's education secretary, Richard Riley, visited the home of the anti-social-promotion movement, Chicago's James Ward Elementary. "I'm not into social promotion and I am not into retention," Riley said during his visit. The administration's flip-flop on social promotion comes after the Los Angeles Unified School District surrendered its ban on social promotion.

Technology and Education

Thank you for inviting Empower America to testify today. Technology and education, and the deepening relationship between the two, is one of our organization’s primary interests. Just as computers and the Internet have fundamentally reshaped the way we do business, they will also soon reshape education - in universities; in primary and elementary schools; even in preschools. John Chambers, the CEO of Cisco Systems, recently said, "Education over the Internet is going to be so big it is going to make e-mail usage look like a rounding error." Empower America agrees. Technology will, in fact, revolutionize American education.

Clinton’s $3 Trillion Raid on Social Security

Once again, Bill Clinton is trying to outdo Congress in protecting Social Security. Two years ago, he challenged the Congress to save 60 percent of the surplus for Social Security. In this year’s budget, Clinton is proposing a "Social Security solvency lock-box" that is intended to secure every dollar of the Social Security surplus for Social Security. While this plan may conjure up images of stacks of cash waiting in Fort Knox for the Baby Boomers to retire, the reality is that his plan leaves the vault empty when the program begins to run large cash deficits in just 14 years.

New Science Quiets the Alarm Over Global Warming

Recent climatological studies have undermined the claims of those who believe that the human use of fossil fuels is causing an unnatural and dramatic rise in Earth’s temperatures. In light of this new science, we need to review the basic assumptions that have driven our climate-change policy over the last five to 10 years.

Understanding the Microsoft Antitrust Case

Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) has taken a steadfast position throughout the successive stages of the trial opposing the government's antitrust lawsuit against Microsoft. At its heart, the government's case against Microsoft is predicated on the notion that the government can predict what the technology sector will look like in the future. By claiming that Microsoft's Windows operating system may not contain an Internet browser, the government limits the ability of a software maker to determine how software products will best utilize the latest technology to meet consumers' needs. In a world according to the lawsuit filed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and North Carolina's Attorney General Michael Easley, innovation would be limited and consumers should be content with the same products and same features.
