The Senate voted today to end debate on the budget deal reached by Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senator Patty Murray (D-WA). This tax-and-spend deal blows the top off of the budget caps set back in 2011, and raises taxes (or, if you prefer, fees), while claiming to reduce the deficit over ten years with mostly phony cuts that will likely never materialize. With the cloture vote passed, the Democrats can now pass this deal with a simple majority.
They might still be monitoring your phone calls to mom and bartering for gold with your World of Warcraft character, but for the foreseeable future, the NSA will have to shut down its metadata collection program...at least according to US District Court Judge Richard Leon, who today approved an injunction against the operation pending the outcome of litigation.
The Senate is set to vote on the fiscally irresponsible budget negotiated by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) soon. FreedomWorks has issued a key vote notice declaring that we will deduct the scores of any member of Congress who votes for it on our congressional scorecard. As you may imagine, this news hasn’t thrilled the Washington establishment.
A lot of people around the country are concerned with Common Core for a variety of reasons. Americans are standing up and fighting back against this huge government intrusion.

Much of the programming of the healthcare.gov was copied from other people. That's not a scandal, because the original creators of the software licensed it for public use. But it should be a scandal that any of the code for the site is hidden away from public view and inspection under the guise of security.All of the code for healthcare.gov should be freely available to the public.

Washington, DC- Following House Speaker John Boehner’s second slam against conservative groups, FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe released the following statement in response:
A year or so ago, the TSA confiscated my NRA membership keychain because it kinda sorta looked bullet-like. It was clearly supposed to resemble a bullet but, at the same time, it was clearly not. I asked if they could just swab it to prove that it was not a live round but, alas, they would not. My beloved NRA keychain was taken, and I had my own story on how crazy the TSA is. I thought it was a pretty good story until yesterday, when I heard they took a toy gun away from a sock monkey.
Washington, DC- FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe released the following response to the Ryan-Murray budget deal, and House Speaker John Boehner’s recent comments smearing fiscally conservative groups: “Speaker Boehner’s real problem here isn’t with conservative groups like FreedomWorks, it’s with millions of individual Americans who vote Republican because they were told the GOP was the party of small government and fiscal responsibility.”
