Let workers control their Social Security

BY ALICE CLICK

Social Security reform is perhaps the most important issue for the 2004 elections. The current system is failing, threatening the 232,000 retirees who receive Social Security in West Virginia. If Social Security is not reformed, it will begin to run deficits by 2018. The system as a whole will be completely bankrupt by the year 2042. Then we will be forced to either raise taxes or decrease benefits. Neither option is acceptable.

Lawsuits Instead of Fixing Schools

Concerned Coloradans wasted no time in implementing the largest school choice program in the nation after the U.S. Supreme Court cleared the way for vouchers in Zellman v. Simmons-Harris last June. Governor Bill Owens worked with legislators, activists and concerned parents this spring to make Colorado the first state to adopt a school voucher law since the Court handed down its landmark decision. But almost before Owens’s signature dried on the bill, the Colorado Education Association (CEA), the state’s largest teacher union, was threatening to sue.

Backgrounder: Texas Freedom Scholarships

BACKGROUND: CSE supports a parent’s right to select the educational environment where their child has the best opportunity to learn. Government-assigned, government-run schools are not free-market. However, we do not oppose public education. There are many good schools and many good teachers. But currently, choice is widespread among citizens who can either move to a school district of their choice or can afford to pay twice – once in taxes and again in private school tuition. So choice is widespread unless you are poor. This legislation provides a choice for those who currently have no options.
