Breaking Down the Barriers to Competition: A Brighter Future for Telecommunications

Most Americans now have more than a decade of experience with telephone competition, paying a lot less for much more. Long-distance phone calls cost half as much now as they did before competition, and there are hundreds more telephone products available to use at home, in the car, at the office or just about anywhere. Price cuts and diverse choices could soon come to local phone service and video services as well – if lawyers, regulators and politicians don’t get in the way.

Removing Government Roadblocks: Opening the Road to a High-Tech Future

High technology promises to give Americans better and faster products and services, yet government seems to limit innovation at every turn. Whether through taxation, regulation, or litigation, government just can’t keeps its hands off of high technology. Across the nation, federal, state, and local governments seem bent on stunting the development of telecommunications, software, and computer hardware. They do this for several reasons: Bureaucrats think they can “promote competition” by penalizing firms that compete too aggressively and successfully.

Government Regulation and the Internet: A Stranglehold on the Future

Today, the Internet is a resource unparalleled in history and its accessibility to people across America should be a primary concern for policymakers. What the Internet could be tomorrow, no one really knows; but the possibilities stretch the imagination. The Internet is speeding millions of Americans from “Telegraph Road” to the information superhighway and raising their standard of living along the way. Just four years after the Internet became available to mainstream America, nearly 40 percent of us are already online.

Clinton's Band-Aid Approach to Medicare Reform

President Clinton has finally offered his new plan for Medicare, but it isn't clear why he calls it a "reform" package. Clinton's Medicare solutions are about as effective as several small band-aids on an Ebola patient. His two big ideas - expanding Medicare and spending projected surplus tax revenues - will likely make Medicare's long-term problems worse.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Clinton and the Internet Tax: Scrap the Code?

After meeting with the nation's governors for two hours yesterday, President Clinton told them that states should be responsible for solving the Internet tax "problem." A White House spokesman immediately clarified the president's position and explained that the president is opposed to any discriminatory taxes on the Internet or taxes on Internet access. We say, good for him. Pernicious Internet access taxes already increase the cost of getting online. Just to mention a couple, there is the multi-billion dollar Gore tax and the federal excise tax on telecommunications services.

The Great Debt Retirement Fallacy

Copley News Service, 02/25/2000 A misguided bipartisan policy consensus has congealed in Washington, D.C.: Raise tax rates to balance the budget and keep federal revenues at or near an all-time high of 20.5 percent of GDP to run budget surpluses and retire the public debt. Within the past few months, President Clinton and House Speaker Dennis Hastert have committed the Democratic and Republican parties to retiring every dollar of debt held by the public no later than the year 2015. Both parties are making a profound mistake.

Tech Fact #7 - Enough Is Enough!

What's going on here? This morning the buzz around the nation's capital is that the Department of Commerce wants to fund a new entitlement program. Enough is enough. The federal government spends enough money already - about $18,000 for every American household - there is no need to spend $50 million more on a giveaway.

Issue Analysis 102 - Clinton's Bait-and-Switch FY 2001 Budget Raids Social Security and Taxpayers' Wallets

Part I Squandering the Surplus, Threatening Medicare Clinton’s tax cut plan returns less than 23 percent of the $746 billion surplus back to taxpayers, leaving roughly $580 billion for the administration’s other priorities. Their plan dedicates these remaining funds for spending on new entitlement programs and for buying down publicly held debt under the guise of extending Medicare’s solvency.

Capitol Comment 268 - H.R. 644: Price Controls for Seniors' Prescription Drugs

House Democrats, led by Rep. Tom Allen (D-Maine), have introduced the Prescription Drug Fairness for Seniors Act of 1999 (H.R. 664). More recently, they filed a petition to force a vote on the bill. By instituting price controls through the back door, the bill inflicts rationing on seniors, forces higher medical costs on everyone else, freezes the development of new cures, and means higher taxes for us all.1
