CSE LAUNCHES NEW HAMPSHIRE CHAPTER

Today, Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) Foundation announced the launch of their New Hampshire chapter. “New Hampshire Citizens for a Sound Economy will create a permanent presence for the growing numbers of CSE members in the Granite State. Currently, over 1,000 residents are already involved,” said Paul Beckner, CSE Foundation President. “A strong independent voice for taxpayers is needed in New Hampshire because there is a real threat to the ‘New Hampshire advantage’ – one where the state’s prosperity had been linked to the absence of broad-based taxes.”

Capitol Comment 250 - Snowe-Wyden: No Fairy Tale for Seniors and Taxpayers

Senators Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) recently introduced the Seniors Prescription Insurance Coverage Equity (SPICE) Act, S.1480. The SPICE Act has seven shortcomings that dwarf any benefits for seniors. Premium Coverage Under S. 1480 IF a Senior’s or Couple’s Income is… …THEN Taxpayers Would Pay This Portion of Their Premiums Up to 150% of the poverty level 100% 150% to 175% of the poverty level Between 100% and 25% Over 175% of the poverty level 25%

Tax Fact #36: The Facts Class Warriors Don’t Want You to Know, Part II

Critics of Congress’s $800 billion tax relief plan – which would reduce the marriage penalty while cutting tax rates by one percentage point – are outraged that these measures will give a larger tax cut, at least in dollar terms, to upper-income families than middle-income families. This is like being shocked that the sun sets in the West.

Tax Fact #35: The Facts Class Warriors Don’t Want You to Know, Part I

True to form, opponents of Congress’s $800 billion tax relief plan are playing the "class warfare" card in a last ditch attempt to stir public sentiments against the plan. To prove their case, they point to figures showing that the tax cut package will deliver many times the tax relief to upper-income families than to lower-income families.

Capitol Comment 249 - Hey Congress: Please Don’t Feed the Trial Lawyers! Dingell-Norwood Hurts Patients, Helps Lawyers

The "Bipartisan Consensus Managed Care Improvement Act" (H.R. 2723) is the federal government’s latest misguided attempt at controlling health care. While the bill’s list of sponsors demonstrates that it is bipartisan, if it becomes the consensus approach, Americans in managed care would see few, if any, improvements. It gives them little more than an expanded ability to sue. In reality, this approach will only take money out of consumers’ checkbooks and put it into the pockets of trial lawyers, making health insurance less affordable for all Americans.

Capitol Comment 247 - Are You Down with OPP and Internet "Unregulation?"

A new study released by the Office of Plans and Policy (OPP) of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) celebrates the success of a policy of "unregulation" for the Internet.1 "Unregulation," as opposed to deregulation, is the total absence of regulation, not the removal of regulation. This study coincides with the FCC’s recent stance against state attempts to regulate Multiple Service Operators (MSOs), such as cable providers who offer advanced services like Internet access.

Tax Fact #34: Memo to Bill Clinton, We Can’t Afford Your $1.1 Trillion in New Spending

To understand why Bill Clinton believes that the government cannot afford to give taxpayers $792 billion in tax relief (out of $3 trillion in projected budget surpluses over the next ten years), its instructive to look back on the budget he submitted to Congress earlier this year. According to the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO’s) analysis of the President’s budget, Clinton wants to use the money Republicans have now earmarked for tax cuts – plus an additional $300 billion – to fund a $1.1 trillion expansion of government.
