Coburn to the Rescue!

Now that the president has signed class-action legal reform into law, Congress is turning its attention to health-care-litigation reform; namely, to addressing the asbestos-litigation morass and the medical-malpractice-insurance crisis. We all know the core problem: a self-serving litigation industry that costs us billions of dollars and is growing at double-digit rates.

The Investor Election

Despite the presidential campaign focus on re-fighting the Vietnam War and second guessing the war in Iraq, history suggests that most voters will be voting their pocketbooks today. But how does a voter judge this economy? In the wake of the Great Depression of the 1930s the single measure of economic well-being was the unemployment rate. It if was going up, the incumbent was in trouble; heading downward, the incumbent was safe.

Tigers in Detroit

EDITOR'S NOTE: This piece appeared in the August 8, 1980, issue of National Review. DETROIT, TUESDAY — Democrats looking forlornly for hopeful signs can take satisfaction from the Republican Convention's having opened without the traditional benediction. What happened is that the minister who had been engaged to invoke the blessings of the Lord at "12 o'clock," showed up at 12 o'clock — midnight: on the understandable assumption that political conventions are sinful affairs, which can logically be expected to begin at night.

Falling Flat

Matt Drudge got conservatives' hopes up for nothing Monday when he ran a story that Speaker of the House Denny Hastert planned to "push for replacing the nation's current tax system with a national sales tax or a value added tax." Unfortunately, Drudge based his story mostly on comments from the speaker's upcoming book, Speaker, rather than real indicators that fundamental tax reform is on the way.

Division on the Right

No conservative can be happy about giving at least $400 billion in additional taxpayer funding to an entitlement program. Many conservatives would have been willing to go along with the expansion of Medicare if they thought that the program would simultaneously be reformed in a major way. Most conservatives outside Congress don't believe that the current Medicare bill offers nearly enough reform. Accordingly, it is being opposed by the Heritage Foundation, the Cato Institute, Citizens for a Sound Economy, the Wall Street Journal, National Review, and other conservative organizations. A few brave Republican congressmen, notably Reps. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Mike Pence of Indiana, have also declared their opposition.
