Memo to Congressional Leaders

We can all read polls. Seniors want a prescription drug benefit as part of Medicare. And with Democrats planning to scare seniors with false and misleading attacks on Social Security, Republicans want to make sure they are on the “right side” of a core issue with seniors.

State AG’s to Consumers: “Here’s Your Swiss-Cheese Security Program”

Consumers are likely to face higher security costs due to increased risks of viruses and hackers,” concluded CSE vice president Erick Gustafson following the testimony of Virginia professor Kenneth Elzinga. “Far from providing additional consumer benefit, the non-settling states so-called remedy is going to result in confusion, chaos, and a better environment for criminals. Perhaps I’ve just missed why this is good for consumers, but it really appears as though the states’ proposal is designed to benefit Microsoft’s competitors,” he continued.

Taming the Tax Code

“Every tax ought to be so contrived as both to take out and keep out of the pockets of the people as little as possible, over and above what it brings into the public treasury.” -Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations, 1776

Low Income Americans Shouldn’t be the Butt of Big Government’s Cruel Joke

Always popular because of their supposed benefits to public health, cigarette taxes are so high that a recent Congressional Research Service study demonstrated that tax revenue from tobacco exceeds the cost of all smoking-related health care. Yet those who view government as a growth industry keep coming back to tobacco taxes because the revenue helps to finance their vision of a larger and more intrusive state government. Across the nation, state legislatures are pursuing tobacco taxes to raise the funds necessary to pay for the explosive growth of government.

A Tax We Should All Want to Bury

Sometime before the U.S. Senate’s Fourth of July recess they will vote on whether or not to repeal the Death Tax. Permanently! Everyone agrees the vote will be close and the outcome is uncertain. In my mind, that means those of us who believe in repealing the Death Tax have a real shot at winning this vote – and enacting good policy.

Are the Foxes Watching the Henhouse?

This Week – The House plans to take up several measures this week. The first will be a resolution disapproving the President’s recent decision to impose steel tariffs. House Joint Resolution 84, “Disapproving the action taken by the President under Section 203 of the Trade Act of 1974,” does not have any legislative power to stop the decision but expresses opposition. The House also expects to take up House Joint Resolution 87, the ”Yucca Mountain Repository Site Approval Act,” to approve the site at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, for the development of a repository for the disposal of high-level radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel, pursuant to the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982. Finally, the House anticipates the debate of H.R. 4546 - National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2003. This bill would authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2003 for military activities of the Department of Defense, for military construction and to prescribe military personnel strengths.
