Tax Fact #26: $9 Billion to a Nation of Part-Time Farmers?

According to recent Department of Agriculture statistics, America has become a nation of middle-class, part-time farmers. Yet some lawmakers are suggesting that because of the recent dip in crop prices, farmers should be given as much as $9 billion in direct crop support payments and subsidies for disaster programs such as low-cost crop insurance. Before throwing $9 billion to a handful of part-time farmers, lawmakers should consider the following information reported in the USDA’s Agriculture Fact Book for 1998:

Broadband: A Grand Slam Strategy for Bridging the Digital Divide

The Internet is growing at an astounding rate as people access it faster than any other technology in history. An impressive array of statistics from both government agencies and economists attest to these facts. Yet, as with any new technology, there are varying rates of adoption – not every American has access to the Internet today. Competition and innovation will lower costs and increase availability of the Internet for all consumers. As a result, those who do not have access to the latest technologies will likely have access to them in the very near future.

Capitol Comment 241 - Kennedy Strikes Back: The Return of Nationalized Health Care

In 1994, President Clinton tried to nationalize the health care industry in an ill-advised attempt to help the millions of Americans without insurance. Now, Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA) and the president are at it again – only this time, they want to take control of private health plans and leave uninsured Americans out in the cold. What’s worse, under the guise of their "Patients’ Bill of Rights," millions more would lose the health insurance they currently enjoy.

Capitol Comment 245 - Congress Needs to Pass Comprehensive Civil Justice Reform

When the editorial pages of the conservative Wall Street Journal and the liberal Washington Post agree on an issue, both politicians and voters should take notice. Recently the Post described America’s legal system as a "kind of lottery in which clever trial lawyers and a few victims get very rich at the cost of society's confidence in the justice system." The Journal opined that recent verdicts have "corrod[ed] the public’s, and the world’s, belief that courtrooms are serious places."

Suggested Talking Points - UNC Bond Issue

Let the people vote! Historically, the citizens of North Carolina have had the opportunity to vote on bond proposals in our state. Now, however, the General Assembly is rushing consideration of a three billion dollar bond issue that bypasses the public’s traditional role in approving the state’s education bond issues. Such a move not only would put the state’s consumers at risk for higher taxes, bypassing the people’s right to vote on the University bond issue will cost taxpayers 40 million dollars and cause a huge $247 million budget shortfall next year.

Tax Fact #18: Creating Personal Retirement Accounts is a Better Use of the Social Security Surplus

Bill Clinton believes that the best use of the projected $3.7 trillion in Social Security surpluses over the next 15 years – equal to $25,700 in extra payroll taxes for every worker in America – is to buy down the national debt. He argues that his plan will protect the system by assuring that Social Security’s surpluses will continue to build up in the trust fund while simultaneously reducing the government’s debt burden in preparation for the Baby Boomers’ retirement.

Nationalizing Prescription Drugs is Bad Medicine: Clinton-Gore Plan Will Quickly Lead to Rationing for Seniors

Medicare is already insolvent, losing $9 billion last year alone. The Medicare trustees have reported that Medicare will be totally bankrupt in just sixteen years. Due to the federal government’s mismanagement of Medicare, provider payments for hospitals, doctors, and nursing homes have already been significantly reduced, and some nursing homes and HMOs are refusing new Medicare beneficiaries. The Clinton-Gore administration rejected a bipartisan commission’s recommendations to save Medicare from bankruptcy – a plan based on what federal employees already have.
