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:

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.

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:
