Congressional Felons Should Not Get Taxpayer-Subsidized Pensions

Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) is working to expose and eliminate Congress' multi-million pension scheme that forces you to line the politicians' pockets with your tax dollars. While Congress ignores the looming crisis that threatens the retirement benefits you've been promised . . . and while the politicians even dip into your Social Security funds to pay for a flood of wasteful government spending, Members of Congress use taxpayer dollars to fund their own lavish pensions.

Social Security Ambuscade

As published in The Washington Times, August 1, 2003 Give the devil his due, Sen. Ted Kennedy is one helluva good politician — one of the best. Mr. Kennedy practices his craft in the same manner and style as the late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan. He lures his philosophical opponents with his bonhomie into believing they can "work together." He seals the deal by making what appear to be strategic concessions to his opponents that in fact turn out to be decoys baiting a carefully laid trap.

Help Limit the Tax Rate in California

The California Simple Tax Committee has launched an initiative petition to limit the outrageous income tax rate in California. The state’s current tax code imposes a tax rate of 9.3 percent on middle class citizens who earn less than $50,000, while loopholes and tax credits have Californians that earn over $100,000 paying an average income tax of less than 2%.

CSE: End the Filibuster of Judicial Nominees

This week, a renegade minority in the Senate continued to filibuster several highly qualified judicial nominees who probably have the support of a majority of the Senate. We can’t know that, however, until the full Senate is able to hold a vote. On Tuesday, for example, another attempt to override the filibuster of judicial nominee Priscilla Owen failed in the U.S. Senate. Although 53 Senators supported holding a clean vote on the Owen nomination, sixty votes were needed to defeat Senate obstructionists who continue to logjam the judicial selection process.
