Activist Handbook 2000: Personal Retirement Accounts

Personal Retirement Accounts Why CSE Cares There are twin crises facing the Social Security system, and our national political leaders cannot hide from this reality: The first crisis is financial. If nothing is done, the system will begin running cash deficits in just 15 years and will need to be bailed out with $11.3 trillion worth of new income taxes or government borrowing to pay its bills. The program’s long-term liabilities are a whopping $22 trillion - six times today’s national debt.

Activist Handbook 2000: Medicare and Prescription Drugs

Medicare Reform and Prescription Drugs Why CSE Cares The Issue: CSE believes that health care services are products that are best allocated through the decisions of individuals in the private marketplace. Health care services are, at times, critically important, and a market-based system offers the best chance to expand choices and control costs: government control of health care is typically inequitable, inefficient and irrational. Medicare, which provides health care to America’s elderly and disabled, is a case in point. The Problem:

Activist Handbook 2000: Gasoline Tax and Global Warming

The Clinton-Gore Administration’s Anti-Consumer Energy Policy Why CSE Cares The Issue: Gasoline prices have risen 50 cents to 60 cents per gallon over the past six months, and in some areas costs more than $2.00 per gallon. The surging price of gasoline has highlighted America’s increasing dependence on foreign oil. In 1974, net imports of crude oil supplied about 35% of our gas needs. Imports now supply more than 55% of U.S. petroleum consumption, the highest ever.

Activist Handbook 2000: Technology Policy

Technology Policy Why CSE Cares High technology promises to give Americans better and faster products and services, yet government seems to limit innovation at every turn. Whether through taxation, regulation or litigation, government just can’t keep its hands off of high technology. Across the nation, federal, state, and local governments seem bent on stunting the development of telecommunications, software and computer hardware. Governments strangle technology development for several reasons:

Among the assets was a customer list, which contained names, e-mail addresses, and payment information.

A 'Petri Dish' in the Pacific; Conservative Network Aligned With DeLay Makes Marianas a Profitable Cause

BY Juliet Eilperin

Last year, two close associates of one of the most powerful members of the U.S. House spent part of their New Year's holiday 8,000 miles from Washington in the Northern Marianas. Although the islands are known for their balmy weather, golf courses and great snorkeling, the trip could hardly be described as a junket--the advisers to House Majority Whip Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) were there on a political mission.
