Tort Reform Affects More than Civil Justice

Some trial lawyers are creating a cottage industry out of suing the state on behalf of prisoners. This taxes the courts, the criminal justice system and prisons in particular.

Gore Goes for the Money Issue

BY Chrystal Caruthers

Voters overwhelmingly say the US economy is a major issue in this year's presidential race, and economists agree that its performance is unprecedented. Conventional wisdom would seem to dictate that an incumbent ought to benefit from this combination of the factors, but the electorate appears unwilling to give Democratic candidate Vice President Al Gore all the credit for the past eight years of prosperity.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: GAO Report provides Ammunition for Fight Against Forced Access

As is the case with many studies produced by the General Accounting Office (GAO), the October 12th report, “Technological and Regulatory Factors Affecting Consumer Choice of Internet Providers” means different things to different people. All in all, the report is a needed contribution to the “open access” debate and should provide a framework upon which to build.

Empty Promises Aren't the Prescription America's Seniors Need

BY Richard J. Killion

AFTER EIGHT YEARS OF EMPTY promises, the Clinton/Gore administration has rejected bipartisan solutions to America's Medicare crisis and left seniors with little coverage. Now Vice President Al Gore is at it again, proposing a dangerous Medicare plan that promises more than it provides.

The Season That Brings Out the Legal Profession's Warm, Giving Side

BY James V. Grimaldi

In an election year that has already smashed political spending records yet again, the top industry fueling the campaigns may come as a surprise. No, it isn 't the pharmaceutical industry, or health care, or tobacco or computers. It isn 't insurers, or real estate or Wall Street securities firms. The most politically generous industry is the legal profession. And the biggest donors in the most generous industry are right here in Washington. Would it surprise you to learn that the biggest lot of them work on K Street?

Election 2000: The Governor's Race

BY Stedman Lesley

David McIntosh has built his campaign around a guarantee to cut residential property taxes by 25 percent if he's elected - a promise criticized as impossible because it is prohibitively expensive and requires legislative approval. But McIntosh is undeterred. In fact, he has staked his potential long-term career on it, promising he won 't seek re-election as governor if he fails to achieve his goal in his first four years. Democrats call the claim desperate, but those who know McIntosh say that's just his personality - confident and resolute.

A Will amd a Way: Political Style Matters

BY Jodi Edna

The vice president of the United States is leaning into his desk aboard Air Force Two, licking the sticky, red chicken-wing sauce off his fingertips, one digit at a time. Just like a regular guy. In this unguarded moment, he does not look like a man who, for the past eight years, has been in charge of U.S. policy on a number of fronts. But he was. When it came to science, technology, and, most of all, the environment, Gore was much more than the man behind The Man. He was dominant.

CSE Cuts Through the Environmental Spin: Which Al Gore Do You Believe?

As the election draws near, citizens are hearing more rhetoric on environmental issues from Vice President Al Gore. Lately, Gore has been declaring that American families ought to have the freedom to drive anywhere at a cost that is affordable. He is talking a lot about the cost for an average American family to get around, or to heat and cool their homes. Just the other day he said that he “stand[s] for protecting the environment in ways that will create good new jobs.”
