Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Regulation Through Litigation is Ground Zero for Assault on Consumers

Led by Assistant Attorney General Joel Klein, today officials from the Department of Justice will brief members of the White House staff on the latest version of the government attack on Microsoft. Klein summarized the Clinton-Gore administration’s view when he said that this case "sets the ground rules for enforcement in the information age." Innovation and competition are out. Litigation and regulation are in.

Capitol Comment 288 - Universal Service Subsidies Constrain Local Telephone Competition

For most of this century, regulators and legislators have considered cheap local phone service akin to a basic human right, nearly as important as free speech itself. Phone companies cashed in on this political preference by promising “affordable” service for all in exchange for monopolies. But now that competition in local service is legal, new competitors in the residential market find themselves up against established firms that are required by regulation to sell service at prices well below cost.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Free Trade is Fair Trade

House Minority leader Richard Gephardt betrayed his committment to the high-tech community when he came out in opposition to Permanent Normal Trade Relations (PNTR) with China. The United States has an incredible opportunity to open the Chinese markets for American goods and services; sadly, Gephardt and others in Congress are willing to throw this opportunity out the window.

Property Rights: The Hidden Issue of Social Security Reform

One of the most enduring myths of Social Security is that a worker has a legal right to his Social Security benefits. Many workers assume that, if they pay Social Security taxes into the system, they have some sort of legal guarantee to the system’s benefits. The truth is exactly the opposite. It has long been law that there is no legal right to Social Security. In two important cases, Helvering v. Davis and Flemming v. Nestor, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Social Security taxes are simply taxes and convey no property or contractual rights to Social Security benefits.

Texas CSE Activists Rally in Support of Tax Reform

Texas CSE Activists joined other groups today at Austin's downtown post office in support of federal legislation which scraps the tax code and paves the way for significant federal tax reform. H.R. 4199, by Rep. Steve Largent, R-Oklahoma, will sunset the current tax code on December 31, 2004. It passed the U.S. House of Representatives last Thursday by a vote of 229 to 187.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Declaration of Independence for the Next Millenium... Internet taxes = Taxation without Repr

This week, the Advisory Commission on Electronic Commerce presented its report to Congress. Now, congressional leaders must determine the course of action that would provide consumers with the full benefits of the high-tech economy. Unfortunately, state and local politicians are raising taxes on American consumers and forcing small businesses off the Internet. They use scare tactics and half-truths to promote an agenda that would lead to higher taxes and more government spending.

EPA delays efforts to impose illegal regulation

CSE Foundation today applauded reports that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will delay until next year a decision designating several central-Texas metropolitan areas as violating the eight-hour ozone standard. The EPA has threatened to cut off highway funding for cities such as Austin, Tyler and Longview — even though the courts ruled last year that the eight-hour standard was unconstitutional and unenforceable. None of these cities is currently in violation of the Clean Air Act.
