Technology and Education

Thank you for inviting Empower America to testify today. Technology and education, and the deepening relationship between the two, is one of our organization’s primary interests. Just as computers and the Internet have fundamentally reshaped the way we do business, they will also soon reshape education - in universities; in primary and elementary schools; even in preschools. John Chambers, the CEO of Cisco Systems, recently said, "Education over the Internet is going to be so big it is going to make e-mail usage look like a rounding error." Empower America agrees. Technology will, in fact, revolutionize American education.

Clinton’s $3 Trillion Raid on Social Security

Once again, Bill Clinton is trying to outdo Congress in protecting Social Security. Two years ago, he challenged the Congress to save 60 percent of the surplus for Social Security. In this year’s budget, Clinton is proposing a "Social Security solvency lock-box" that is intended to secure every dollar of the Social Security surplus for Social Security. While this plan may conjure up images of stacks of cash waiting in Fort Knox for the Baby Boomers to retire, the reality is that his plan leaves the vault empty when the program begins to run large cash deficits in just 14 years.

New Science Quiets the Alarm Over Global Warming

Recent climatological studies have undermined the claims of those who believe that the human use of fossil fuels is causing an unnatural and dramatic rise in Earth’s temperatures. In light of this new science, we need to review the basic assumptions that have driven our climate-change policy over the last five to 10 years.

Understanding the Microsoft Antitrust Case

Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) has taken a steadfast position throughout the successive stages of the trial opposing the government's antitrust lawsuit against Microsoft. At its heart, the government's case against Microsoft is predicated on the notion that the government can predict what the technology sector will look like in the future. By claiming that Microsoft's Windows operating system may not contain an Internet browser, the government limits the ability of a software maker to determine how software products will best utilize the latest technology to meet consumers' needs. In a world according to the lawsuit filed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and North Carolina's Attorney General Michael Easley, innovation would be limited and consumers should be content with the same products and same features.

Tech Fact #9 - Government Taxes Widen the Digital Divide

Few people would disagree that access to the Internet and the latest technology is crucial to success in our new digital economy. Given the importance of this access to technology, the "digital divide," or disparity in access to digital technology, is certainly worthy of the recent attention focused on it by the presidential candidates and other politicians. Unfortunately, they have missed one of the easiest and most effective solutions to bridging the so-called digital divide.

Oregon CSE's Activists Help Modernize State's Telecommunications Laws

In 1999, Oregon CSE's (OR CSE's) 10,000 volunteer activists won a major victory in the battle to modernize the state's telecommunications marketplace. OR CSE worked with the state legislature to ensure passage of Senate Bill 622, legislation that provides Oregonians with greater choice and competition in their telecommunications marketplace. The Executive Director of the Oregon Republican Party, Darrell Howard commented, "I can't believe OR CSE was able to pass S.B. 622. It's all due to your grassroots efforts."
