Oregon Citizens for a Sound Economy Fights for Property Rights

CSE Members and Other Local Groups Protest 11th-Hour Clinton Land Grab. On January 6, 2001, more than 1,200 activists from Northern California and Southern Oregon gathered for a “Road Rally” in Medford to make their voices heard on property rights, Secretary of the Interior nominee Gale Norton, and government land grabs. The road rally clogged downtown Medford for more than an hour as the assembled throng paraded through the city. Protestors drove log trucks, trucks pulling boats, campers and four wheelers with pro-property rights signs and banners through the streets of Medford to bring attention to the proposed federal takeover of Soda Mountain, Medicine Mountain, and the multi-use lockout of Diamond Lake and Crater Lake National Park.

Debating the Clinton Legacy

Copley News Service, 01/15/2001 The debate is raging about the legacy of Bill Clinton. Eight years after he took office we have a nation that is more prosperous, productive and optimistic than when he took office. But if ever a president left a muddled and ambiguous legacy to our nation, it’s Clinton.

Will He or Won't He?

BY John Wagner

Overheard: 'On behalf of the North Carolina Senate, I would like to call on anyone who may have an idea or suggestion as to how we can reduce spending and make state government more efficient to please contact my office.' - State Sen. Marc Basnight as the state faces a $ 486 million budget shortfall. ### Political Scorecard: UP: Jimmy Carter. More than 1,000 people waited in line in Raleigh and 2,000 in Charlotte to get autographs on Carter's new book. Will there be similar crowds for Bill Clinton in 20 years?

Wag the Nerd: Government Files its Screenplay for Antitrust

By filing a brief in response to the Microsoft appeal, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and 19 states’ attorneys general signaled their willingness to waste limited taxpayer dollars prosecuting a company that has provided measurable benefits to consumers. During the trial, the plaintiffs did not demonstrate evidence of consumer harm. Even the presiding judge, Thomas Penfield Jackson, later admitted “virtually everything” he did as judge in the Microsoft antitrust case “may be vulnerable on appeal.”

Move Ahead on Social Security Reform

Round Two in U.S. v. Microsoft: Still Awaiting Evidence of Consumer Harm

I will review all pending and future lawsuits brought on behalf on North Carolina consumers. I will only move forward with litigation and continue with pending litigation if I am assured that such action would provide consumers with economic benefits that can be measured. - Senator Roy Cooper, candidate for North Carolina Attorney General, 9/18/00.

Change the debate: Ashcroft a Champion for Consumers

Citizens for a Sound Economy President Paul Beckner today announced his support for Attorney General nominee Senator John Ashcroft and urged senators to confirm the former Missouri governor. “Few public servants have defended consumer interests as steadfastly and on a consistent basis,” said Beckner about Sen. Ashcroft in a letter to the Senate. Sen. Ashcroft is a champion for consumers and his record proves it: 1. Despite his ardent anti-smoking convictions, Ashcroft shielded consumers from an $800 billion cigarette tax.

Seattle's "Light" Rail Faces Weighty Problems

There is a belief among many Americans that government is inherently wasteful, inefficient, and arrogant. To the dismay of everyone in the Puget Sound area, the recent Sound Transit debacle has confirmed these stereotypes.

Citizens For A Sound Economy Urges Senate to Confirm Ashcroft

The following was released today by Citizens for a Sound Economy: -- Change the Debate: Ashcroft a Champion for Consumers -- CSE Urges Senate to Confirm Ashcroft Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) President Paul Beckner today announced his support for Attorney General nominee Senator John Ashcroft and urged senators to confirm the former Missouri governor. "Few public servants have defended consumer interests as steadfastly and on a consistent basis," said Beckner about Sen. Ashcroft in a letter to the Senate. Sen. Ashcroft is a champion for consumers and his record proves it: -- Despite his ardent anti-smoking convictions, Ashcroft shielded consumers from an $800 billion cigarette tax. -- Ashcroft favors restraint in antitrust regulation and has voiced his concern over the government's case against Microsoft. -- His record shows consistent support of consumer-friendly bills including tort reform legislation, such as the Y2K Liability Act of 1999 and the Common Sense Legal Reform Act of 1995. Erick Gustafson, CSE's Center for Consumer Choice director, said the idle left-wing talk of the liberals doesn't focus where it should: on Ashcroft's pro-consumer record. "The fact is, as Attorney General, Senator Ashcroft will favor innovators over litigators and will fight for consumers every step of the way." Gustafson said. "We have no reason to believe otherwise. Time and again Ashcroft has proven himself a champion for consumers." "Ashcroft's distinguished record of public service should serve as the primary focus of the confirmation process and compel a 'yes' vote," Beckner concluded. "American consumers deserve John Ashcroft as their Attorney General."
