Why Obama’s Plan is Not Where We Want to Go

Tuesday, an article titled, “Why Obama’s Health Plan is Better” in the Wall Street Journal praised the candidate’s plan and accused the opponent, John McCain, of causing more harm than good. When one takes a close look at Senator Obama’s plans for the future of health care, it is easy to see the pitfalls and dangers that await American taxpayers.

FreedomWorks Calls on Columbia Riverkeeper to Clarify Relationship with Eco-Terrorists, Extreme Fringe Movements

It is well known that the Columbia Riverkeeper has a long history of opposing energy development, such as hydro-power and Liquid Natural Gas facilities in Oregon. What is not as well publicized is that the Columbia Riverkeeper is supported by extreme ideological groups that support the destruction of the American way of life and believe violence is a legitimate political act.

Key Vote "Yes" Sen. DeMint Amendment to Defense Authorization Bill

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to VOTE YES on Senator Jim DeMint’s amendment to the Defense Authorization bill.  The amendment strikes Section 1002 of the bill; a section that incorporates all of the earmarks written in committee giving them the force of law despite the fact that those earmarks are not in the bill, were not debated, voted on, or signed into law.

Key Vote “NO” on the Pelosi Anti-Energy Package

On behalf of the hundreds of thousands of members of FreedomWorks nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on the “Comprehensive American Energy Security and Taxpayer Protection Act.” This bill would: continue the faulty policy of preventing us from exploring for oil and natural gas in Alaska and in most areas off our coasts; limit energy exploration by preventing drilling within 50 miles of the coast; and impose $30 billion in new taxes on energy production.

Don't Risk Innovation to a Bureaucratic Misinterpretation

Technology is a driving force in society, for both businesses and consumers. Indeed, the cyberspace revolution promises gains on the order of those achieved in the earlier industrial revolution. The implications are profound, not just in terms of economics, but in terms of quality of life. The flow if information at the speed of light has empowered individuals across the globe, with the number of worldwide internet users fast approaching 1.5 billion. Unfortunately, these gains can be trampled by government—through censorship, taxation, or regulation.
