The Lawsuit Tax: America's Hidden Tax

It seems that every time we turn around the government taxes us. If it's not an income tax, it's a sales tax; if it's not a sales tax; it's a property tax. Taxes cost American families thousands of dollars a year. But few families realize that their tax burden does not end with the government. Trial lawyers are robbing decent, honest Americans of their money, trust, freedom, livelihood, and peace of mind by forcing the average American family into paying the "lawsuit tax."

Issue Analysis 104 - Costs and Benefits of the Bells' InterLATA Data Prohibition

The Telecommunications Act of 1996 prohibits Bell Operating Companies from offering service between “Local Access and Transport Areas” (LATAs) until they demonstrate that local telephone service is open to competition and satisfy a vague “public interest” test. The principal purpose was to keep the Bells from offering long-distance phone service until they could prove that they could not use monopoly control of local phone lines to keep other long-distance companies from reaching their customers.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: This Week We Remember the Maine – Every Month We Pay the Price

In 1898 the United States entered a brief war with Spain. It lasted less than one year. Theodore Roosevelt and the Rough Riders were catapulted to national fame for their victories over the Spanish Army, and the United States emerged victorious with control over much of what is now Central America. To fund this war effort, President McKinley implemented a luxury tax on a new invention – the telephone. Today, Americans may remember the Spanish-American War when they think of Teddy Roosevelt or hear the expression "Remember the Maine." All Americans should remember it when they pay their monthly telephone bill.
