Why Imminent Minimum Wage Hike Will Boost Unemployment And Depress Consumption

Politicians are proving Milton Friedman’s observation that “the government solution to a problem is usually as bad as the problem,” true once again (the Milton Friedman video below complements this blog post aptly). This time they are raising the federal minimum wage from $6.55 to $7.25 on July 24. This will be the third and final boost in a three-step plan by the federal government, based on legislation passed two years ago.

Help Stop Another Threat to U.S. Energy Security

Don’t look now, but another threat to America’s access to affordable energy looms on the horizon.Recently, Nancy Pelosi and her fellow liberals in Congress passed a massive new Cap and Trade Energy Tax in the House.  This potentially devastating legislation that would threaten thousands of American jobs and cause energy prices to skyrocket now moves to the Senate and could be voted on as early as September.  Meanwhile, the Obama Administration is attacking our energy security on another front.Soon after he was confirmed as Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar announced that his department would be scrapping the plan for offshore oil and natural gas drilling and exploration developed by the previous administration.  Every five years the Department of the Interior’s U.S. Minerals Management Service (MMS), the agency responsible for offshore oil and gas leasing in the United States, develops a Five-Year Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) leasing program that helps schedule offshore oil and gas lease sales.  Instead of sticking to the plan in place, Salazar’s MMS is changing the rules on energy companies in the middle of the game.Please call Secretary Salazar at 1(877) 851-2516 and tell him that altering the Draft Proposed Program for 2010-2015 already in place, threatens our energy supply and could send gas prices through the roof.The Obama Administration has made no secret about their desire to see less oil, gas, and other tried-and-true fossil fuels on the table and their plans to limit energy production will increase energy prices.  The truth is, we need all energy options on the table and the government shouldn’t be picking and choosing winners.  Higher energy costs mean fewer jobs and rising costs on everything from food to transportation to heating and electricity.  Expanding offshore drilling and producing more energy would lower costs and help create more jobs.  The middle of an economic crisis is no time to start changing how business is done for the businesses, workers, and families that rely on the availability of the billions of barrels of oil and trillions of cubic feet of natural gas just off our own shores.  New technology has made energy exploration more environmentally friendly and safer for workers. Call Secretary Salazar at 1(877) 851-2516 and tell him we need more energy not less.  And if you have another moment, please send an email to the agency. Let him know you support the Draft Proposed Program for 2010-2015 – the plan already in place.

Like Eugenics? You’ll Just Love Socialized Medicine

Under normal circumstances, documented support for radical and discredited population control methods would probably disqualify someone from holding a position of scientific authority like, for instance, “science czar.” Not so in Barack Obama’s administration.

Rolling Petition to DC for Sept.12

While thousands are making plans to march on the Capitol on Sept. 12, some decided to make the drive there just as memorable. Tea party patriots in Taylor County, Florida, have constructed a "rolling petition"-- a billboard covered in signatures with the words "Stop Wasteful Spending" -- which they plan to drive to DC for the 9/12 March on Washington. If you're interested in following them to DC, or building your own, check out the Taylor County Tea Party blog.

Bailout Nation: CIT's on Deck

CIT Group Inc. is too big to fail. Or so says historical precedent.Well, sort of. We think. Er, perhaps?Amid growing fears that the country's primary lender to small and midsized U.S. businesses is on the verge of a run, the ailing company's stock fell to a meager $1 Monday as investors braced for the worst. Monday's analysis of the group's liquidity crunch hinted that the company could be on deck for a federal bailout as mentioned in an AP article:

Census Data Says Current Health Care System Leaves 16 (Not 46) Million Underserved

Thirty million is a lot of people. It is about four times the population of New York City. It is 10 percent of the population of the entire United States. It is also the amount by which everyone from the Obama administration to the mainstream media is exaggerating the number of Americans who may currently be unable to obtain health insurance. From a new study by FreedomWorks:
