The Tax Debate

For over a year, Gov. Bush has made tax cutting the centerpiece of his national economic agenda. He comes to the debate with a record as governor for proposing and signing into law the two largest tax cuts in Texas state history. With workers paying the highest taxes in American history and the federal government running record surpluses, Gov. Bush argued tonight that every working American deserves a tax cut.

CSE Applauds Governor George W. Bush’s Mention of his Tort Reform Record in Texas

In Tuesday night’s debate a clear distinction was drawn between Governor George W. Bush and Vice - President Al Gore on the issue of saving our legal system from exploitation by an elite group of trial lawyers. Specifically, Governor George W. Bush has a plan to save our legal system and our schools from junk trial lawyer lawsuits. In fact, a CSE study found that the legal reform legislation signed by Governor George W. Bush saves the average Texas household $1,078 per year.

Al Gore Ignored the Social Security Crisis

Gov. George W. Bush has chosen to make Social Security reform a key part of his domestic agenda. He is the first presidential candidate in history to propose fundamental social security as a central theme of his campaign. He deserves real credit for bold leadership. Vice President Gore did nothing tonight to demonstrate his understanding of the real problems facing Social Security. A quick review of the facts is important to understanding this complicated debate. There are twin crises facing the Social Security system, and Vice President Gore ignored this basic reality:

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: The Future of 'Intellectual Property' is Now

Yesterday, a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments in the Recording Industry of America’s (RIAA) copyright infringement suit against Napster. The court will decide whether to uphold an injunction issued by District Court Judge Marilyn Patel, which would shut down the file-sharing website. The injunction was stayed to allow the site to continue operations until today’s panel was able to rule.

H-1B Visa legislation

Today, the U.S. Senate voted 96-1 to authorize an expanded program of special visas for workers in the high technology sector. In applauding the Senate’s action, Empower America co-director Jack Kemp pointed out that "this is a limited but vitally important step towards eliminating barriers to the free flow of highly skilled labor and intellectual capital, both of which are vitally important to the knowledge-driven New Economy that is creating wealth and opportunity at a pace unprecedented in human history." Kemp also noted that while the Senate legislation is limited to authorizing up to 195,000 new visas per year for six years (the so-called H-1B visa), "it is hard to overestimate the symbolic importance of the Senate’s action in making it easier for American entrepreneurs to do what they do best: create the new technologies and dynamic new markets that will shape America for decades to come."

Stop Driving My Car

If you live in New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine, or Iowa, you might want to think twice about lending your car to a responsible friend with a good driving record, or you could wind up getting sued for doing a good deed. In July 1998, a road rage incident in Upstate New York tragically left a passenger in one of the vehicles with severe brain damage. Both drivers involved in the accident were found to be criminally liable and received jail time.

Las Promesas Rotas No Son la Receta Médica de Medicare que los Ciudadanos de la Tercera Edad de América Necesitan

Durante ocho años los ciudadanos de la tercera edad han estado esperando el liderazgo de la administración Clinton-Gore para resolver la crisis de Medicare y de recetas médicas de América. La Casa Blanca ha hecho nada. Peor aún, esta administración, junto con los Demócratas de la Cámara de los Representantes, abandonó los esfuerzos bipartisanos por fortalecer Medicare y proveer a los ciudadanos de la tercera edad con opciones para el seguro de recetas médicas, como las que reciben los miembros de Congreso y todos los empleados federales.
