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.

Capitol Comment 259 - What’s a Dollar Raise Really Worth?

Possibly driven by guilt over the raise they just gave themselves, Congress wants to help those at the bottom of the pay scale. Their plan is to help poor Americans by raising the minimum wage one dollar over the next two or three years. It is a bad policy hiding behind a compassionate sound bite.

Capitol Comment 258 - Truth about Texas' Environmental Progress Lost in Election Politics

TACC Attack. On October 19, a coalition of 44 of groups launched a coordinated media attack on Gov. George Bush’s environmental record. Dubbing themselves the "Texas Air Crisis Campaign," the group issued a 12-page report that purported to show a dramatic worsening of air quality during Bush’s tenure as governor. The report was quickly picked up by media outlets, which dutifully repeated TACC’s message.

Capitol Comment 257 - Smart Growth? Not in My Backyard

As the vilification of "urban sprawl" reaches ever-louder decibels, "smart growth" has been held out as the answer to concerns about our quality of life. Smart growth, though not clearly defined even by its supporters, generally consists of several proposals: "in-fill," which means channeling growth towards existing urban areas, "clustered" development, in which tightly grouped homes are surrounded by large areas of open space, greatly expanded commuter rail systems, and high density development.

Capitol Comment 256 - Schizophrenic Health Care Reformers

The House of Representatives passed tax breaks to make health insurance more affordable on October 7 – then followed up with a law to make it more expensive on October 8. This isn’t the only instance where politicians are ‘reforming’ at cross-purposes. Consider their schizophrenic stands on managed care and Medicare reform. Causing people to lose their insurance contradicts the whole notion of patients' rights.
