Media Bias on Campaign Finance

The Senate’s reaction to two seemingly unrelated bills recently passed by the House of Representatives has crystallized the political class’s psychological confliction over campaign finance reform. One, identified as Shays-Meehan after its sponsors, would cap contributions to the national Democratic and Republican parties made by corporations, unions, and wealthy individuals. The other, dubbed Tauzin-Dingell after its sponsors, would deregulate the broadband Internet offerings of incumbent local phone companies.

New Jersey Chamber of Commerce, Commerce and Industry Association of NJ, NJSEED Join Coalition for Auto Insurance Competition

The Coalition for Auto Insurance Competition today announced that three influential and respected business groups have joined the effort to fundamentally reform New Jersey's auto insurance laws. "These groups recognize the need for a regulatory system that promotes competition, encourages companies to sell auto insurance in New Jersey, and creates a stable market that offers more choices for consumers," said John Friedman, the coalition's chairman.

Real Campaign Finance Reform: Smaller Government

Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed bipartisan legislation designed to resolve the thorny issue of money in politics. The campaign finance reform legislation, sponsored by Chris Shays (R-Conn.) and Marty Meehan (D-Mass.) offers new regulations on the flow of money in the political system. The bill is similar to a measure passed by the Senate last year; unless opponents in the Senate can successfully filibuster the bill, it will be heading to the president’s desk, where Bush must decide whether to veto the legislation. While the bill appears to be on the fast track to passage, its ability to reform campaign finance is questionable. In addition to raising legitimate First Amendment concerns, the bill does nothing to address fundamental source of the problem: an expanding government presence in the economy. For real reform, a smaller, less-intrusive government would reduce the need for businesses, unions, and other special interests to seek favor with the government.

The Death of an Energy Giant: Enron (1985-2002)

In September of 2000, Enron was the nation's 7th largest corporation with a market capitalization of nearly $60 billion. Less than 14 months later, its stock was worthless and the business was forced to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection from creditors. Such an astonishing collapse has not only raised eyebrows, but also outraged investors, policymakers and much of the public.

Clinton Administration-era DOJ was Focused on a Liberal Agenda, Not Fighting Terrorism

Trusted with nothing less than the administration of Justice, the United States Attorney General is arguably the second most important officer in the nation's war on terrorism. With the threat of another domestic attack in the consciousness of the public, the importance of the Department of Justice (DoJ), and law enforcement generally, cannot be understated. Effective criminal prosecution and intelligence gathering are essential to protect and defend American citizens.

Erick Gustafson grew up in a different Sarasota than he left seven years ago. Condominiums and vacation homes have replaced trailer parks on Longboat Key. Hotels have risen. Strip malls have been built. Countless tiffs about signage and aesthetics have flared.

Special Interests Have Much to be Thankful For

This week, President Bush signed the airline security act to federalize the nation’s 30,000 airport screeners. The political wake turbulence caused by the inexplicable crash of American Airlines flight 587 made a protracted struggle untenable. As a result, a terrible bill became law that not only adds 30,000 union workers to the federal government’s payroll, but also establishes incomprehensible new regulations to modify and improve on the incomprehensible security regulations already in place.

Bush the following letter regarding potential postal reform:
