Clock Ticks for Democrats’ Bad Move on Net Neutrality

Senate Democrats could seek to reverse the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) “Restoring Internet Freedom Order” by Monday. While their attempt has no chance of passing the Republican-controlled House or avoiding a President Trump veto, the move panders to severely misinformed activists.

Support the One Percent Spending Reduction Act, H.R. 5572

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and strongly encourage him or her to cosponsor the One Percent Spending Reduction Act, H.R. 5572, introduced by Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.). The bill, also known as the “penny plan,” would balance the federal budget in five years by simply cutting one penny from every dollar the federal government spends.

Key Vote YES on the Confirmation Vote on Jim Bridenstine to be NASA Administrator

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to vote YES on the confirmation vote on Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.) to be the administrator of NASA. Between his time as an aviator in the United States Navy, his firsthand experience serving as the executive director of the Tulsa Air and Space Museum and Planetarium, and his work in Congress, Bridenstine is extraordinarily qualified for the role of NASA administrator.

Congress Doesn't Lack Tax Revenue -- Democrats and Republicans Have a Spending Problem

Opponents of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which delivered much-needed tax relief to the middle class and business owners large and small, have complained that the law is contributing to the increase in expected budget deficits over the next ten years. Certainly, budget deficits are a serious concern, and Congress has shown no interest in addressing the problem.

The Weekly Fix: Trust Me, I'm a Doctor...Sort Of

The fix is in. A Democrat congressional candidate in Arizona was exposed by a local news outlet for misrepresenting herself as a practicing emergency room doctor in her debut campaign video. Hiral Tipirneni is no longer certified in emergency medicine and has not actually practiced medicine since she was served with a malpractice lawsuit in 2007.

The Shadow of Yesterday's Triumph: Why Kicking the Can Down the Road on Welfare Reform Is Not a Solution

This summer, America will mark the 22nd anniversary of the enactment of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act. Reforming welfare was a prominent part of then-Speaker Newt Gingrich’s “Contract With America” as well as President Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign. After lengthy negotiations and a couple of vetoes by President Clinton, the measure was passed with bipartisan support. It promised to overhaul the way America handled welfare and government assistance for years to come.

Sweet Talk: Time for Congress to Have a Conversation on Sugar Policy

Whether it be through taxes, regulations, or other big government policies, the federal government is quite adept at finding ways to sap money out of your wallet and into government coffers and the pockets of big special interests. One would think that the least likely suspect to drain your bank account would be sugar. It sweetens our coffee and other sweet treats we enjoy on a daily basis. However, U.S. sugar policy has been causing incredible economic harm to American consumers for years.

Key Vote YES on the Indirect Auto Lending CRA Resolution of Disapproval, S.J.Res. 57

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to vote YES on the Indirect Auto Lending CRA Resolution of Disapproval, S.J.Res. 57. This resolution would provide for congressional disapproval of a March 2013 guidance document issued by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). This guidance document was issued by the CFPB to intentionally circumvent the regular agency rule-making process in order to counter existing law and give the CFPB regulatory power over auto dealers.

House Republicans Can't Drain the Swamp by Electing Kevin McCarthy as Speaker

Last week, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) announced that he would not seek re-election. His future had been an open question. He was essentially recruited to take the gavel of the chamber after Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) called it quits in October 2015.
