Social Security Debate Brings Finances Into Focus

BY Robert Dodge

WASHINGTON _ Vice 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 privately 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.

Empower America's Seven Principles of Social Security

1. Guarantee all promised benefits to current and near-term beneficiaries. First and foremost, we must fully protect the current Social Security system for those on it and those going on it in the next 10 to 15 years. Millions of Americans have made retirement decisions based on the contract of the current system. We absolutely must protect them. That means no benefit cuts. Promises made must be promises kept.

V.P. Gore Puts Forth Environmental Plan

Vice President Gore has proposed an environmental agenda for his administration should he win the upcoming presidential election. The cost of new spending in his program is estimated to be $150 billion. The Gore plan emphasizes "energy independence,” proposing to "free American families from dependence on big oil and foreign oil." Americans are more dependent on imported oil than at any other time in history, now importing more than 55 percent of our oil, compared with 35 percent in 1974. This percentage has continued to grow under the Clinton/Gore administration.

CSE urges FTC and FCC to approve AOL/Time Warner merger

Today, Citizens for a Sound Economy in a letter signed by CSE and four other four free-market groups urged the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to approve the pending AOL/Time Warner merger. “For months now, the FCC and FTC have held up this merger,” said CSE Director of Technology and Communications Policy Erick Gustafson. “This discourages investment, and results in fewer choices in the broadband market.”

Is Gore Guilty of Another Campaign Finance Scandal?

The New York Times, The Washington Post and Time Magazine have reported that a new investigation surrounding an Al Gore campaign finance scandal has been launched by the Justice Department’s campaign-finance task force. The investigation stems from a 1995 veto of a tort reform bill by the Clinton-Gore administration in which it is alleged that Gore and the Democratic National Committee solicited $100,000 from a wealthy Texas trial lawyer in return for ensuring the legislation would be vetoed.

Bush plan emphasizes innovative, local solutions; promotes responsible management of resources

Washington State Citizens for a Sound Economy today applauded Texas Gov. George W. Bush for advocating creative new approaches to environmental stewardship. “The commitment of Governor Bush to property rights and local leadership in addressing environmental challenges is exciting,” said Washington CSE Director Gary Strannigan. “We’ve argued from the beginning that if salmon are, in fact, endangered—the solution should come from us, not from Washington, DC. Today, the governor showed us he understands something about the Pacific Northwest and its unique ecology.”
