Burying a Time Bomb in Red Tape

In an attempt to ignore out of control spending, North Carolina government officials plan to limit access to prescription drugs for Medicaid beneficiaries. Unfortunately, this strategy is doomed to fail. Not only will it fail to close the budget shortfall, but will also fail the state’s Medicaid beneficiaries by depriving them of the therapies and medical treatments they need.

Vote Against Tourist Tax

In Kirk Sorensen's letter published June 13 ("Heads in beds real boost to economy") he states that Martin County gains a strong economic impact from seasonal tourists. He also implies that draining up to $1 million in taxes from that group will help market our resort hotels in the summer. This is circular reasoning and deserves further analysis.

Letter to President Bush on Union Finances

George W. Bush President The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington, DC 20500 Dear President Bush: I would like to commend you for the efforts by your Department of Labor to open up the heretofore-secretive process of union finances. By putting the financial disclosure forms, known as LM-2, on line and making them accessible and searchable, you have removed a significant barrier to public scrutiny of union spending and activities.

Big Mistake

ABSTRACT: In “Big Mistake,” Murdock writes about the unintended consequences of Bush’s steel tariffs. While the tariffs have been a boon to inefficient U.S. steel companies, they have harmed dozens of other industries, such as shipping and manufacturing – not to mention consumers. “George W. Bush's cold-rolled capitulation is his presidency's biggest error,” Murdock writes. “It is openly political, nakedly statist and far left of Bill Clinton who ignored the steel industry's protectionist demands. Bush should acknowledge and reverse his mistake.”

Active Ingredient: Politics

No election year legislative session would be complete without the obligatory overture to senior voters through a proposed Medicare prescription drug benefit. Both Senate Democrats and House Republicans have fashioned plans to offer drug “insurance” for Medicare beneficiaries under the current Medicare system. The Republican bill would keep prescription drugs out of the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services’ (CMS, formerly HCFA) portfolio, but do little to address the inefficiency and exploding costs underlying the current Medicare system.

Regulatory Rollback?

Recent reports that the Bush administration has eased the standards for New Source Review and that the Office of Management and Budget is looking to work with the EPA as it drafts new rules for soot have many in the environmental community crying “regulatory rollback.” Proponents of command-and-control regulation imply that any reform measures are letting polluters off the hook and turning the clock backwards. In reality, it is becoming increasingly evident that many federal regulations provide little or no benefit to the public. Outdated or unnecessary regulations do, however, raise consumer prices, threaten American jobs, and reduce the competitiveness of American firms in a global economy.

Getting the Short End of the Stick

This Week in Congress Early in the week the Senate will consider S.2600, the “Terrorism Risk Insurance Act.” This legislation is a response to September 11th and would provide a government subsidy for terrorism insurance. The theory is that many commercial buildings can’t get insurance for terrorism costs and therefore need government funding. Unfortunately, this legislation puts the federal government on the hook for billions upon billions of dollars. Furthermore, the Senate bill does not even contain a provision limiting the amount of civil lawsuits, as contained in the House passed bill thereby allowing carte blanche to the greedy trial lawyers. CSE opposes this legislation.
