Public Interest Groups Getting Ready to Lobby

BY Bruce Hight

Some call them good government, watchdog or public interest groups. Their harshest critics say they are liberal Democrats posing as nonpartisans, or fronts for ambulance-chasing trial lawyers. Whatever the label, groups such as Consumers Union, Public Citizen, Common Cause of Texas and Texas Watch will spend the next five months in the Capitol lobbying, testifying and holding news conferences in hopes of getting the Legislature to see things their way.

CSE Foundation has long held that the overzealous antitrust activism practiced by the Clinton Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has been harmful to both consumers and the marketplace. The FTC’s latest attempt to block this merger is no different.

Poor Math Scores Multiply

As printed in The Washington Times, January 3, 2001 In a recent press release with the headline, "U.S. Eighth Graders Above Average in Math, Science," Secretary of Education Richard W. Riley declared, "Our students are successfully learning more math and science every year they're in school, but we can do even better." To hear such a peppy response, you might think that the secretary was reacting to news that the United States was first among nations in education, or to a new survey showing that the performance of our students was much improved over previous years.

Pennsylvania PUC EmbracesConsumer Choice

Today, Citizens for a Sound Economy applauded the Pennsylvania Public Utilities Commission’s (commission) decision to pullback from an unprecedented proposal to split Pennsylvania Verizon in 2. The commission hatched the scheme to split the company into separate retail and wholesale units in 1999. Thankfully, the PUC recognized the consumer harm such ill-conceived regulation would have caused. Today, Jerry Ellig, research fellow at Citizens for a Sound Economy Foundation issued the following statement:

Overview of CSE's Tax Cut Activities

Congress took an important step in the right direction in providing meaningful tax relief for the first time in twenty years and eliminating some of the worst aspects of the IRS tax code. CSE’s staff and volunteer activists contributed to this hard-fought battle at every step of the way. Though this is merely the first step in creating a fairer and simpler tax code, it will go a long way toward stimulating our economy, creating jobs, and encouraging entrepreneurship.

Tax Fact #32: White House Drastically Understates Cost of Medicare Reform Proposal

Last month, President Clinton announced his plan for "reforming" Medicare, comprised mainly of transferring more tax dollars from the U.S. Treasury and expanding Medicare to include a prescription drug benefit. The administration, however, apparently understated its cost estimates to deflect criticism of the plan. Medicare already costs $210 billion annually, and is projected to cost nearly $500 billion in ten years (without adding any new benefits).
