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.

Senate Democrats Demand FCC Chairman Ajit Pai Violate the First Amendment; Pai Refuses

Yesterday, twelve Senators from the radical left, including Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), wrote a letter to Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai demanding he open an investigation into a news company based entirely on the content aired and viewpoints of that company. What is immediately obvious to just about everyone besides these twelve Senators, including Chairman Pai, is that such action would constitute an egregious violation of the First Amendment. Today, Chairman Pai sent a letter back to the Senators making clear just as much.
