Empty Promises Aren’t the Medicare Prescription America’s Seniors Need

For eight years seniors have waited for leadership from the Clinton-Gore administration to solve America’s Medicare and prescription drug crisis. The White House has done nothing. Worse, this administration walked away from, and the House Democrats walked out on, bipartisan efforts to strengthen Medicare and provide prescription drug coverage options for seniors, much like the benefits enjoyed by members of Congress and all federal employees.

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

Washington 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.”

BY PEGGY VENABLE

Ken Hoagland's Aug. 31 column about the Firestone tragedy was right on target: tort reform has proven to be a boon, not a bust, for all Texans ("Tort reform won't stop Firestone lawsuits") . A recent study conducted for Citizens for a Sound Economy by Ray Perryman reveals the success and benefits of 1995 tort reforms. The study estimates that because of tort reform, annual personal income has increased by more than $7 billion, retail sales have grown by almost $3 billion and 197,000 permanent jobs have been created.

RATS TO THE BOY SCOUT CONTROVERSY

BY Myriam Marquez

Are you a biological error? Or are you trying to stop Dr. Laura from saying that, based on her religious beliefs, certain people are biological errors? Are you "morally straight," as a Boy Scout should be? Or do you know a former Scout who may not qualify for membership anymore, but he's still your good friend and not some biological error? Hey, did you notice that Will & Grace, a show about a gay guy and his female straight friend, got the Emmy for best comedy television series?

Venus Williams to President Clinton: “Can you lower my taxes?”

The Washington Post reported Sunday that after Venus Williams won the U.S. Open on Saturday she greeted President Clinton with a question: "Can you lower my taxes?" It is estimated that after taxes, Venus Williams will take home $483,200 of her $800,000 check for winning the U.S. Open -- a 39.6 percent government penalty for winning the U.S. tennis tournament. While Venus Williams’ tax woes may be an extreme case, it typifies the robbery of Americans’ pocketbooks by the government.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: A Market for Wine and Spirits from Portland, Maine to Portland, Oregon

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Richard Berman breathed some life into the dormant commerce clause by refusing to dismiss a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of direct wine sales in New York State. New York, like 29 other states, currently prohibits out-of-state wineries from selling directly to consumers. Predictably, the result of such practice has meant higher prices and poorer selection for consumers.
