Gary Strannigan's Letter to the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission

August 10, 2001 Dear Sir: On behalf of 14,000 members of Washington Citizens for a Sound Economy (WACSE), I write to encourage you to support Qwest's application to offer long-distance services to consumers in the state of Washington. Qwest has implemented the market-opening requirements of section 271 of the Telecommunications Act successfully and the market for local telecommunications service is irrecoverably open to competition in Washington State.

A Corporate Folly

Copley News Service, 08/09/2001 Philanthropy is a demonstration of good will toward one's fellow man, but the ability to give depends on the wealth, success and opportunity of a free society. The corporations, foundations and individuals who endow our universities, support our museums and foster a healthy 'ideas industry' all depend on profits, dividends and wages generated by capitalism.

Alabama CSE Grows Through ‘Pork Projects’

Montgomery, AL - Alabama Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) is engaging in pork politics. Is Alabama CSE endorsing big government spending? Not at all. Nearly 300 people recently attended a barbecue in Madison County, the third in a series being organized around the state by Alabama CSE. Pork barbeque get-togethers are a time-honored part of Alabama’s social fabric. Alabama CSE has been speaking the common language of barbeque and free-market policies confirming the axiom "all politics is local."

Don’t Go to the Well With a Leaky Bucket

I am not certain, but it seems I heard a wise old fellow say that once. I’ve got to hand it to them. The transportation special interests have done a marvelous job convincing everyone that the buckets are just fine. Don’t worry about that water, er, money, all over the floor. It’s doesn’t really amount to much anyway, we’re assured.

Lawmakers Question Use of 911 Money

BY Scott Mooneyham

Across North Carolina, local governments have accumulated substantial reserves, some exceeding $1 million, from a little-publicized 911 service charge included on local telephone bills. The charge, approved by lawmakers in 1989, was intended to help counties improve their 911 emergency calling technology. Many of those improvements involved technology that allowed 911 operators to identify a caller's location.

An Interest Rate Target With No Bulls-Eye

Copley News Service, 07/03/2001 It's disconcerting to hear calls for Japan to lower interest rates when its rate on overnight money already is virtually zero (actually 0.35 percent). Japan suffers from deflation that has depressed its economy and is helping drag down the world economy. Pushing interest rates below zero, however, is not the answer to Japan's problem. Do we expect Japanese banks to pay people to borrow money?

Governor Perry Vetoed a Record 78 Bills

From 1995 through 1998, while the cost of legal services in the United States rose more than 14 percent (source: U.S. Dept of Labor), insurer legal defense costs, per case, actually decreased 1 percent. While verdicts generally have risen between 8 percent and 10 percent each year, insurance companies have contained the inflation on the amount they paid to plaintiffs on their litigated cases to a total of less than 4 percent over four years!

CSE Praises Sen. Thompson's Efforts to Make Government More Efficient and Effective

Today, Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) unveiled his waste, fraud and abuse report, "Government at the Brink: Urgent Federal Government Management Problems Facing the Bush Administration." Paul Beckner, president of Citizens for a Sound Economy, issued the following statement regarding Sen. Thompson's report: "CSE is pleased to see that someone in Washington, D.C. is taking the issue of government waste, fraud, and abuse seriously. "In the past, we've heard the stories of the $400 hammer, and know that the government is wasting literally billions of dollar annually. Sadly, no one has ever tried to comprehensively address this issue. That is, until now. "With this report Sen. Thompson identifies many of the root problems facing government agencies. Additionally, he identifies ten of the worst examples of government mismanagement. Needless to say, we support his efforts." CSE has long advocated for limited government. Key to ensuring this limited government is to make sure that government is working efficiently and effectively. CSE is a grassroots advocacy and education organization dedicated to economic freedom. For more information or to arrange an interview, please contact Chad Cowan at 202-942-7692. Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) is a grassroots advocacy and education organization dedicated to economic freedom. CSE recruits, educates, motivates, and mobilizes hundreds of thousands of volunteer activists to fight for less government, lower taxes, and more freedom.
