100 Republicans Join in Voting for More Mandatory Spending

Today, astonishingly, 281 Members of the U.S. House of Representatives – including 100 Republicans – voted to increase the government’s autopilot “mandatory” spending. Tucking even more new spending into the “non-discretionary” category in order to avoid budget constraints is a dangerous precedent – one which no fiscal conservative should ever support.

The Online Sales Tax Rears Its Ugly Head… Again

Americans have been shopping online for 20 years now. What started as a curiosity has become routine and essential for millions of people, and the days when you had to physically track down a copy of a rare book or record have become an increasingly distant memory. The sheer convenience of online shopping is breathtaking, but that very convenience has made sites like Amazon.com as many enemies as they have friends. The retail lobby, infuriated by the discovery of a better business model, have spent years seeking a government solution to their declining sales.

Law enforcement funding should come from Pennsylvania lawmakers, not from the property of innocent people

Pennsylvania has one of the worst civil asset forfeiture laws in the country, in the country, but a recently introduced reform proposal would protect innocent people from this form of government overreach. Prosecutors in the Commonwealth are, however, aggressively trying to defend the pernicious practice, which is often used to go after property of law-abiding citizens.

Windy City Gets Blown Over With New Tax

A new tax is being imposed on Chicagoans in the name of fairness. Residents who pay to stream movies and music on sites such as Netflix and Spotify will be charged an additional 9% for using those services. The added costs come from a ruling of the Finance Department. Implementing the new charges will be an expansive reach of two types of governing taxes already in place known as the city amusement tax and the city personal property lease transaction tax in order to cover products used by businesses and residents alike.

New Regulation on Retirement Investments Means Less Choice for Your IRA and 401k

The Obama administration has proven exceptionally talented in making law without Congress, using the vast alphabet soup of agencies such as the EPA, the IRS, the FCC, and the NLRB to drastically increase the government’s reach into our lives. Among all of the massively damaging regulations coming out of these agencies is a little-noticed rule from the Department of Labor that could drastically affect millions of Americans’ choice in IRA and 401K investments.

Court Increases Questioning of the Jiggery Pokery that is Chevron Deference

Chevron deference has been used by the Supreme Court since 1984. Since that time, federal agencies have been able to capture more and more power over the American people.

Key Vote YES on the Brat Amendment to the 21st Century Cures Act

As one of our over 6.9 million FreedomWorks activists nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote YES on the Brat amendment to the 21st Century Cures Act, H.R. 6. This amendment would make new funding for the NIH and Cures Innovation Fund discretionary, instead of the mandatory spending now proposed.

The 21st Century Cures Act will Lead to Huge Spending Growth

The House is getting set to pass the 21st Century Cures Act (H.R. 6). The bill has good intentions. It is trying to do great things by reforming the patent process to streamline the research and production of drugs - getting them to patients faster, which will save lives. Unfortunately, the bill also creates a new spending program with some dubious offsets that make the overall bill difficult for conservatives to support.
