Capitol Comment 184 - Three Simple Steps Toward a Sound Encryption Policy

Consumers have an economic interest in the widespread use of strong encryption. Unfortunately, under the current political environment, either Congress or the administration may implement dangerous restrictions on the development, sales and use of this technology. Liberty is at stake, both economic and civil.

Issue Analysis 71 - The "Patient Access to Responsible Care Act": Trojan Horse of ClintonCare

Supporters of the "Patient Access to Responsible Care Act" (PARCA) claim it would protect patients from managed care plans that deny necessary care for the sake of higher profits. It would do no such thing. Rather, PARCA would implement major portions of the radical Clinton health plan and devastate the health coverage of millions of Americans:

Capitol Comment 177 - The U.S. Should Bail Out of the IMF

If the U.S. Congress approves bailing out the financially troubled Asian nations and replenishing the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for future bailouts, American taxpayers will be footing the bill for the mistakes of other countries.

Capitol Comment 178 - Administered Prices Administer Economic Disaster

The Ohio Legislature is expected to consider legislation to reduce telecommunications access fees. These fees flow between various telecommunications providers in order to transfer telephone calls between different companies' networks. For example, long distance companies pay a fee to local telephone companies to bring a long distance call all the way to a consumer's home - usually the last portion of that call travels over a local telephone company's network.

The Internet Tax Freedom Act Puts Consumers on Top

The Internet Tax Freedom Act, H.R. 1054 and S. 442, would call time-out on taxes that discriminate against electronic commerce and the Internet. The ITFA would institute a moratorium to preclude double taxation of electronic commerce and taxation that singles out the Internet for excise-type taxes. For consumers and taxpayers, the ITFA addresses three important points.

Issue Analysis 70 - Superfund: The Good, the Bad, and the Broken

When President Clinton was first elected, both the new administration and Congress were calling for significant reforms of Superfund, a program created to clean up the nation's toxic waste dumps. "[W]e all know it doesn't work -- the Superfund has been a disaster," noted President Clinton.1 Three Congresses later, however, Superfund remains virtually untouched by reform, despite broad consensus that the program is broken and ill-suited for accomplishing its original mission.

Capitol Comment 175 - Health Coverage Mandates Do More Harm Than Good: A Personal Perspective

The Mental Health Parity Act of 1996 left me with a "mental health tax" of $4,300 — more than my federal income tax liability for last year.

Capitol Comment 173 - 'Gag Clauses' in Managed Care Contracts: If It's Already Fixed, Don't Fix It

In September, President Clinton told a union audience he was proud of his 1994 attempt to impose a government-run health care system on America — in effect putting a government bureaucrat between every American and their doctor. He then told the audience how he intends to implement his failed health care take-over one piece at a time: "Maybe we can do it ... a step at a time, until eventually we finish this." The next few "steps" down the road to ClintonCare include one sponsored by Iowa Republican Rep. Greg Ganske in a bill called the "Patient Right to Know Act" (H.R. 586).
