Just the Facts

© 2002 Copley News Service, 1/31/2002 As a rookie columnist, I have always tried to be fair in recognizing good ideas, whether they come from Democrats or Republicans, and when I criticize what I believe to be ill-considered ideas, I do so on substantive grounds so as to avoid making ad hominem attacks. So I was disappointed to hear Democrats make false claims about us returning to an era of deficits and fiscal profligacy when the Congressional Budget Office reported that it was reducing its 10-year budget surplus projection from $3.4 trillion to "only" $1.6 trillion.

Enron Fall May Affect Think Tank Funding

BY CHRISTIAN BOURGE

The fall of energy trading giant Enron Corp., the largest corporate bankruptcy in United States history, revives long-standing questions about the ties between American big business and non-profit public policy research groups. At the center of these questions is the assumption -- routinely denied, but virtually universally accepted as truth -- that corporations influence legislation and government policymaking through donations to influential think tanks and advocacy groups whose public policy work is known to be influential in various areas.

No Second Best: The Unappetizing Alternatives to Social Security Privatization

Although proposals for privatizing Social Security have been much debated, there has been far less discussion of the alternatives. Indeed, most opponents of privatization would prefer to avoid comparing various proposals for reform. That is probably because their alternatives boil down to some very unpopular options—raising taxes, cutting benefits, or government investment in the stock market.

The State of the Union

On Tuesday, President Bush delivered his first State of the Union address to the American public. Not surprisingly, the war on terrorism was a major focus, as was homeland security. Bush also touched upon a few domestic policy initiatives and the unease with corporate America generated by the collapse of Enron. In the next few weeks the president will deliver his budget to Congress, which will provide a more detailed description of some of the plans outlined in his State of the Union. The budget will make one thing clear: Washington has some tough choices ahead as early projections show deficits for the next two years. President Bush has outlined an ambitious program to provide for the security of the American people. With deficits looming, the president and Congress must revisit many costly programs and reorder budget priorities with an eye toward prudence and responsibility.
