WorldCom Too Big to Fail, Chief Says

BY Jube Shiver

WASHINGTON -- Discounting predictions that WorldCom Inc. might file for bankruptcy protection, Chief Executive John W. Sidgmore said Tuesday that the second-biggest U.S. long-distance telephone carrier is too big to fail and that it remains a "key component of our nation's economy and communications infrastructure." Sidgmore, in his most extensive public remarks since WorldCom disclosed last week that it uncovered a major accounting fraud, pledged full cooperation with federal regulators and said the company is working with its lenders to avoid a bankruptcy filing.

Knowing When to Say NO

Weekly Summary – Due to July 4th, the House and Senate will be in recess this week. After the amount of last minute wrangling and finagling the House engaged in last week, they deserve a break! Congressman Bill Thomas, Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee pulled off two ‘squeaker’ votes last week, passing two different pieces of legislation with only one vote margins. The first was a bill to strengthen the House’s negotiating position as they begin to conference the trade bill with the Senate. Earlier this year, the House passed a clean Trade Promotion Authority Act to provide President Bush with the ability to negotiate trade deals. Unwilling to allow President Bush this victory, Majority Leader Daschle decided to bog the measure down on the Senate side with tons of ancillary legislation. They added a Trade Adjustment Act, which in addition to spending billions and billions more, would for the first time, provide health benefits to displaced workers.

It's time for new owners

Henry Lamb is executive vice president of the Environmental Conservation Organization. It's too late to ask why the west is burning, everyone already knows it is the result of absurd environmental policies that have prevented logging to thin the fuel; the "roadless" policy that prevents firefighters from having access to the forests; and the Endangered Species Act, that won't allow heavy equipment in critical habitat to cut firebreaks.

Textbook Publishers Learn: Avoid Messing With Texas

BY Alexander Stille

"Out of Many," the work of four respected historians, is one of the biggest sellers among American history college textbooks in the United States, but it is not likely to be available to Texas high school students taking advanced placement history. Conservative groups in Texas objected to two paragraphs in the nearly 1,000-page text that explained that prostitution was rampant in cattle towns during the late 19th century, before the West was fully settled.

Medicaid and Prescription Drug Talking Points

North Carolina cannot solve its Medicaid crisis and close the state budget shortfall by limiting the price and availability of prescription drugs. Indeed, Medicaid spending has grown by over 85 percent over the past decade and now threatens to explode the budget of the state and its counties. However, to address this problem by limiting access to the most cost-effective medical therapy available, prescription drugs, is to miss the point entirely. North Carolina should work to reform Medicaid by eliminating waste, fraud, and abuse.

Empower America Applauds Supreme Court Ruling In Historic School Choice Case

Today the United States Supreme Court made history. It ruled on the most important education case since Brown v. Board of Education. In its ruling, the right of children in Cleveland to attend schools that offer a quality education, and the right of parents elsewhere to have a choice in the education of their children, were upheld.

Statement of Empower America Co-Director William J. Bennett On the Supreme Court's Decision In Pottawatomie County v. Earls

Today the United States Supreme Court held that testing students engaged in extracurricular activities for drug use does not violate the Fourth Amendment. Not only is this decision consistent with the Court's 1995 decision upholding drug testing for student-athletes, it is the correct decision, both constitutionally and for the good of students across America. As Justice Thomas put it in the majority opinion, "this policy reasonably serves the school district's important interest in detecting and preventing drug use among its students."
