Concerned about Social Security? So Are We.

One of the biggest issues this election season is Social Security Reform. We at CSE have studied this issue for years, and have booklets, articles, and even long, boring, policy-oriented white papers on the subject. This is our latest Social Security booklet, perhaps you've seen it at one of our events. A Citizen's Guide to Social Security

The Greatest Prosperity Ever?

EXCERPT: Now have us believe that today’s superb economy and large federal budget surpluses are a result of their “New Economic Plan” (NEP). The NEP, enacted in 1993, consisted primarily of a huge tax rate increase and planned large budget deficits for the duration of a two-term Clinton presidency. President Clinton is touting the NEP because of his obvious concern for his legacy, and Mr. Gore is using the NEP as a primary argument for his election as President.1 The Gore-2000 web page contends: “[Gore] cast the deciding vote for the 1993 Administration Economic Plan which helped to eliminate the federal budget deficit and provided incentives to promote economic growth.” During the first presidential debate in the 2000 campaign, the vice president went further: “I had the honor of casting the tie-breaking vote to end the old economic plan here at home and put into place a new economic plan that has helped us to make some progress, 22 million new jobs, the greatest prosperity ever.”

Climate Change: Scientific Fact or Political Fiction?

In order to create public support for the United Nations Global Warming Treaty (The Kyoto Protocol), the White House recently released a report called the National Assessment on Climate Change. This report ignores sound science in favor of presenting worst-case scenarios, to the extent that even the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has called the report "extreme" and "alarmist."

Supreme Court's Cook

BY Stan Baile

MONTGOMERY - Alabama Supreme Court Justice Ralph Cook answered his Republican opponent's call to disavow the Democratic Party's arbitration ads Friday by saying all third-party ads should be stopped. Cook, the Democratic incumbent who is seeking re-election, wrote his Republican opponent, Lyn Stuart, that he expects Alabama voters to "choose the best candidate for Supreme Court Place 1 based on qualifications and experience."

Tort Reform Affects More than Civil Justice

Some trial lawyers are creating a cottage industry out of suing the state on behalf of prisoners. This taxes the courts, the criminal justice system and prisons in particular.

Gore Goes for the Money Issue

BY Chrystal Caruthers

Voters overwhelmingly say the US economy is a major issue in this year's presidential race, and economists agree that its performance is unprecedented. Conventional wisdom would seem to dictate that an incumbent ought to benefit from this combination of the factors, but the electorate appears unwilling to give Democratic candidate Vice President Al Gore all the credit for the past eight years of prosperity.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: GAO Report provides Ammunition for Fight Against Forced Access

As is the case with many studies produced by the General Accounting Office (GAO), the October 12th report, “Technological and Regulatory Factors Affecting Consumer Choice of Internet Providers” means different things to different people. All in all, the report is a needed contribution to the “open access” debate and should provide a framework upon which to build.

Empty Promises Aren't the Prescription America's Seniors Need

BY Richard J. Killion

AFTER EIGHT YEARS OF EMPTY promises, the Clinton/Gore administration has rejected bipartisan solutions to America's Medicare crisis and left seniors with little coverage. Now Vice President Al Gore is at it again, proposing a dangerous Medicare plan that promises more than it provides.

The Season That Brings Out the Legal Profession's Warm, Giving Side

BY James V. Grimaldi

In an election year that has already smashed political spending records yet again, the top industry fueling the campaigns may come as a surprise. No, it isn 't the pharmaceutical industry, or health care, or tobacco or computers. It isn 't insurers, or real estate or Wall Street securities firms. The most politically generous industry is the legal profession. And the biggest donors in the most generous industry are right here in Washington. Would it surprise you to learn that the biggest lot of them work on K Street?

Election 2000: The Governor's Race

BY Stedman Lesley

David McIntosh has built his campaign around a guarantee to cut residential property taxes by 25 percent if he's elected - a promise criticized as impossible because it is prohibitively expensive and requires legislative approval. But McIntosh is undeterred. In fact, he has staked his potential long-term career on it, promising he won 't seek re-election as governor if he fails to achieve his goal in his first four years. Democrats call the claim desperate, but those who know McIntosh say that's just his personality - confident and resolute.
