Washington CSE's Telecom Tour is Breaking Down the Barriers to Choice and Competition in the Telecommunications Market

"The telecom industry is one of the most highly regulated today. Government regulations prohibit the full potential of the high-tech economy and prevent consumers from receiving more choices and competition. When the industry is opened up to more competition and less regulation, we all benefit by having better product and service options and lower prices." -- WA CSE deputy director, Ross Marzolf speaking at the CSE club meeting in Tacoma

Grassley Facing Big Test

Facing his biggest test yet as the new Finance chairman, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is already taking advance fire from conservative activists who fear that he has been far too compromising in negotiating the tax-cut package. Led by the Club for Growth and the Heritage Foundation, a loose coalition of conservative think tanks and anti-tax groups have lashed out at Grassley for considering deals with Democrats even before this week's committee markup or a floor fight.

Issue Number 8- No Guarantee All Lottery Revenue will “Come Home” to North Carolina

North Carolina Citizens for a Sound Economy today released Issue Number 8 of its ongoing effort to educate elected officials and citizens on why a government-run lottery is bad business and public policy.

Reliable Energy Now, and for the Future Talking Points and Sample Questions

The Unites States is in the midst of an energy crisis. New exploration and the production of energy resources has almost completely stopped, our refining capacity is stretched to the limit, and our dependence of foreign energy sources is at a historical high. Any effort to make electricity and fuel more expensive, or to cap or regulate CO2 will only exacerbate an already critical situation and cause tremendous economic damage.
