Victory! Congress repeals Spanish-American War Tax Legacy

Today, CSE praised the House of Representatives for voting to repeal the 3 percent Federal Excise Tax on communication services. The bill, H.R. 3916, overwhelmingly passed the House 420 to 2. “It took 102 years to repeal a tax originally enacted to finance the Spanish-American War,” said Erick Gustafson, Director of Technology and Communications Policy at CSE. “This proves that once the government mandates a tax it is nearly impossible to repeal it, no matter how onerous.”

"Saving" Social Security Is Not Enough

It seems that no politician discusses Social Security these days without a call to "save" the program. Certainly, it is possible to see why the program needs saving. It is facing financial insolvency: it is more than $20 trillion in debt and will be running a deficit in just 15 years.

The Trial Lawyers Are At It Again…

Alabama is known for "jackpot justice," with trial lawyers making outrageous sums of money. Now these same trial lawyers are fighting arbitration just to make millions more on the backs of consumers. Help Us STOP THE GREED! You may have heard of arbitration recently. It's been the focus of a misleading media blitz bought and paid for by Alabama's big time trial lawyers. What is arbitration? Arbitration allows a neutral third party to settle disputes instead of a judge or jury.

The Lawsuit Tax: America's Hidden Tax

It seems that every time we turn around the government taxes us. If it's not an income tax, it's a sales tax; if it's not a sales tax; it's a property tax. Taxes cost American families thousands of dollars a year. But few families realize that their tax burden does not end with the government. Trial lawyers are robbing decent, honest Americans of their money, trust, freedom, livelihood, and peace of mind by forcing the average American family into paying the "lawsuit tax."

Issue Analysis 104 - Costs and Benefits of the Bells' InterLATA Data Prohibition

The Telecommunications Act of 1996 prohibits Bell Operating Companies from offering service between “Local Access and Transport Areas” (LATAs) until they demonstrate that local telephone service is open to competition and satisfy a vague “public interest” test. The principal purpose was to keep the Bells from offering long-distance phone service until they could prove that they could not use monopoly control of local phone lines to keep other long-distance companies from reaching their customers.
