Capitol Comment 263 - Lessons From This Year’s Budget Debacle

In the heat of the debate over Congress’s $792 billion tax relief plan, Bill Archer, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, guaranteed his colleagues that unless they fought to return the $1 trillion in general fund surpluses to hard-working Americans, "the politicians will spend every dime of it on more government programs. They always have, and they always will." Lawmakers shamelessly used the pretense of meeting Clinton’s demands as cover for filling this year’s spending bills with hundreds of pork barrel projects.

Capitol Comment 262 - Old Regulations for the New Economy

Generally speaking, organizations that keep two sets of accounting records have something to hide. Organized crime is such an example. Congress is perhaps another, given all the spending that exists "off budget." However, many local phone companies also keep two sets of books, but not because they are doing anything wrong – the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) forces them to comply with two different sets of accounting standards.

Social Security Is Still a Hopelessly Bad Deal for Today’s Workers

The argument that Social Security is a bad deal for today’s workers and that they would get higher returns and benefits by investing through personal accounts instead has gained broader and broader acceptance. This view has greatly fueled reforms and proposals in the United States and abroad that are based on personal, private investment and insurance accounts.

Capitol Comment 261 - You’ve Got Money ... The Internet Paves the Way for Small Business

The romantic comedy You’ve Got Mail seems to have found the pulse of the nineties. Tom Hanks plays the chain store bully who forces Meg Ryan’s small, family-owned bookstore out of business. However, that story has been around since Wal-Mart first came on the scene; what makes this a nineties romantic comedy is that Ryan and Hanks meet online, and they fall in love as they exchange email. The Internet has really only emerged in the last four or five years, but already has made a tremendous impact on the way Americans communicate, both personally and professionally.

Capitol Comment 260 - Politics at Play in the National Forests

On October 13, 1999, President Clinton issued a sweeping directive that, once again, demonstrated the great power the executive branch holds over America’s public lands. The directive instructs the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) to propose a rule blocking road building, logging, mining, and virtually all other human activity on 40 million acres of Forest Service land.
