Capitol Comment 259 - What’s a Dollar Raise Really Worth?

Possibly driven by guilt over the raise they just gave themselves, Congress wants to help those at the bottom of the pay scale. Their plan is to help poor Americans by raising the minimum wage one dollar over the next two or three years. It is a bad policy hiding behind a compassionate sound bite.

Consumers and Tech Firms Tricked while DOJ Treated in Microsoft Case

Judge Penfield Jackson’s soon to be released finding of fact in the Microsoft case is shaping up to be Halloween's biggest scare. The finding will likely hand consumers a trick - not a treat - as it adds to the howling for increased regulation and control of America’s successful technology sector. The nightmare will continue with more government lawsuits against the private sector because Congress recently handed the Justice Department an additional $112 million to continue its campaign of regulation through litigation. House Judiciary Chairman Henry Hyde even went so far as to comment that the antitrust division brought in more than ten times its budget in fines last year. Policymakers apparently have no problem using the Justice Department’s economic regulation to generate a revenue stream. All of this is enough to make a person run and hide.

Tech Fact #5 - No Net Taxes? Think Again!

Congress may have enacted a moratorium on new Internet taxes, but many Americans still pay a mighty high toll on their way to the Information Superhighway. A recent Progress & Freedom Foundation (PFF) study reveals that existing telecommunications taxes dramatically raise the cost of reaching the Internet.1 The federal government makes logging-on more expensive through three types of telecommunications taxes:

E-Rate: Prepared Statement of Kent Lassman before the Committee on the Judiciary, U.S. House of Representatives

"It is my … hope and aspiration that all of us … may eventually be gathered together in a heaven of everlasting rest and peace and bliss - except the inventor of the telephone." - Mark Twain, circa 1878 Introduction After more than 120 years, if a single improvement could be made to Twain’s curmudgeonly comment it would be the word "taxation." Let us all gather together … except for the inventor of telephone taxation.

Capitol Comment 258 - Truth about Texas' Environmental Progress Lost in Election Politics

TACC Attack. On October 19, a coalition of 44 of groups launched a coordinated media attack on Gov. George Bush’s environmental record. Dubbing themselves the "Texas Air Crisis Campaign," the group issued a 12-page report that purported to show a dramatic worsening of air quality during Bush’s tenure as governor. The report was quickly picked up by media outlets, which dutifully repeated TACC’s message.

Capitol Comment 257 - Smart Growth? Not in My Backyard

As the vilification of "urban sprawl" reaches ever-louder decibels, "smart growth" has been held out as the answer to concerns about our quality of life. Smart growth, though not clearly defined even by its supporters, generally consists of several proposals: "in-fill," which means channeling growth towards existing urban areas, "clustered" development, in which tightly grouped homes are surrounded by large areas of open space, greatly expanded commuter rail systems, and high density development.

Capitol Comment 256 - Schizophrenic Health Care Reformers

The House of Representatives passed tax breaks to make health insurance more affordable on October 7 – then followed up with a law to make it more expensive on October 8. This isn’t the only instance where politicians are ‘reforming’ at cross-purposes. Consider their schizophrenic stands on managed care and Medicare reform. Causing people to lose their insurance contradicts the whole notion of patients' rights.

Issue Analysis 96 - School Choice: Issues and Answers

Americans are free to make decisions about their health, education, and welfare. We can choose what to eat, how to exercise, whom to marry, where to worship, and which candidate deserves our vote. Students can use federal financial aid to attend the college of their choice – even a seminary! But most Americans have little ability to choose how or where their children will be educated during their most critical formative years.
