Social Security: Is It a Crisis That Doesn't Exist?

A consensus has developed across the political spectrum that the Social Security program faces significant problems and is in need of far-reaching modifications. Would-be reformers debate vigorously on the best changes for Social Security. Some argue for transforming the nation's pension program to a defined-contribution system of personal retirement accounts while others support retaining the current defined-benefit structure through a series of tax increases and benefits cuts or through investing a portion of the program's assets in equities.

Late's Get Personal

BY Robert Dodge

President Al Gore and Texas Gov. George W. Bush talk frequently and publicly about their divergent prescriptions for Social Security. Beyond their visions of Americans' retirement security, though, the debate underscores how the two men have prepared for their own financial futures. Gore, who opposes any equity investments involving Social Security, has never owned stocks. Bush, who wants the government to tap the market's higher returns, has had millions invested.

Most States to Continue Case Against Microsoft

BY Dan Richman

No matter what happens to the Microsoft antitrust case in a future presidential administration, most state attorneys general say they will stand firm in their attempt to break Microsoft Corp. in two. But both North Carolina's candidates for attorney general have pledged to re-examine their state's commitment to the case. They made that promise at the behest of North Carolina Citizens for a Sound Economy, a national lobbying group to which Microsoft contributes.

The Spin Stops Here

The presidential candidates held their first debate last night, and the spin has already begun. Get a common-sense perspective from a grassroots organization that was on the trail before the first primary educating people on the very issues Gore and Bush debated. CSE has spent countless hours analyzing each candidates’ proposals and have looked beyond the spin to discover where the rhetoric doesn’t match the reality.

Tech Bytes - Tid bits in Tech News: Good Intentions and Privacy Commission Politics

The road to bad policy is paved with good intentions. The privacy commission legislation defeated earlier this week by the House is an example of how election-year posturing often perverts good intentions. Privacy is perhaps the issue that would benefit most from a clear explanation to consumers. The issue is vast, the opinions are diverse, the details, complex. Add to this an upcoming election, where factual truth often takes a back seat to rhetorical spin, and there is potential for real damage.

A/C Plan Getting Cool Reception

BY David Hendricks

The public comment is in, both written and spoken. A state agency is scheduled to vote Dec. 6 on Texas' clean-air plan that could include a proposal adding significantly to the cost of new air conditioning units for most Texans as of 2002. The air conditioning proposal probably is the most controversial part of the pending Texas clean air plan that will go to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

How Bush Should Debate Gore

Copley News Service, 10/03/2000 The presidential debates are the Super Bowl of politics. With the race coming down to the line, they will decide the swing vote in this election and thus who leads American into this amazing century ahead. Al Gore is a terrific debater. He is tough, disciplined and relentless, as I know from personal experience. He also has an added advantage: He is unconstrained by consistency or the facts.

Giving Parents a Voice: The Debate on School Choice

Vice President Al Gore Says: I have always been against school vouchers because they drain our public schools of funding for children who need it the most—those who can not afford to go to a private school. Education is my number one priority: I am strongly committed to spending more money to improve our public schools. The Reality Is:
