At Least There's a Few Heroes Left

Being from Texas, it made me happy to see that Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) was among the 16 heroes who stood up to oppose a portion of the Dodd/Frank Mortgage Bailout bill that was before the Senate today. Senator Cornyn and the 15 other Senators who voted “No” should be commended for their commitment to limited and responsible government. They are:

Supreme Court Strikes Down Gun Ban

I am probably less sanguine about gun ownership than most folks on the right, but I'm firmly convinced that today's Supreme Court ruling, which strikes down DC's long-standing ban on handgun ownership, is the correct one.  Cato's done some very good work on this, and they've got more information at their place.

Congress Uses Same Offset Twice to Cheat Budget Rules

Congress is using the same "revenue offset" in two different bills to mask their combined budget impact, FreedomWorks policy analysts discovered today. The measure, which creates a new IRS database of small business transactions, is being used to offset $9.8 billion in new spending in the Senate’s Dodd-Countrywide mortgage bailout, as well as $9.8 billion in tax relief in the House AMT "patch" bill.

The Appearance of Action

From the New York Times piece today on the mortgage bailout: Skeptics say the plan is a handout for irresponsible borrowers and lenders, who would be able to get rid of their worst-performing mortgages, putting taxpayers on the hook for billions of dollars in risky loans. But in a contested election year, with Americans losing billions of dollars in home equity, officials in both parties seem reluctant to be seen as sitting on their hands. And then there'

Key Vote "No" H.R. 6275: Still Temporary Relief for Some, Permanent Tax Hikes for Others

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on H.R. 6275, the so-called Alternative Minimum Tax Relief Act of 2008.  The title has a fairly broad use of the term “relief,” with taxpayers saving only  $61.52 billion, as the total costs hidden in new taxes and accounting gimmicks far exceed that to the tune of $408.92 billion.  For only another one year extension, the House has tacked on billions and billions in permanent taxes - extensions of current tax code don’t need a permanent tax increase under the guise of a “pay for.”

Key Vote "No" H.R. 6346: Federal Price Gouging Prevention Act

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on H.R. 6346: the Federal Price Gouging Prevention Act.  The bill, a shallow attempt to rein in gas prices, is eerily reminiscent of the very policies that led to shortages and gas lines in the 1970s and early 1980s.  That was a time when government tried to tamper with a market not at the source, where Congress could encourage more exploration and utilize the vast resources available, but at the pump where retailers have very little control over the end price.
