Senator Coburn’s Op-Ed Required Reading for Republicans

Senator Tom Coburn’s (R-OK) editorial today in the Wall Street Journal, echoing much the same message Congressman Sensenbrenner delivered to Wisconsin Republicans at our state convention earlier this month, furthers the conservative belief that Republicans did not lose their majority because liberalism suddenly became popular, but rather due to the fact voters could not tell the difference between the two political parties.

Senator Coburn’s Op-Ed Required Reading for Republicans

BY Troy Fullerton

Are You an Angry Renter?

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a site named Angry Renter through a Google ad. I rarely click on Adsense ads, but this one intrigued me. The site presents a petition for renters to sign in hopes of stopping a housing bailout. I perused the site a little bit and figured that online petitions never really work, but I left a comment anyway and moved on.

Are you an angry renter?

I haven’t closely followed the news surrounding the housing crisis, but I know the basics. What I didn’t know, however, was that renters represent 32 percent of American households, or that homes in foreclosure are less than 2 percent of all households, or that the vast majority of mortgages are being paid on time. Yet the Senate still passed a multi-billion dollar housing bailout this week.

Farm Bill Follies

The farm bill is pretty obviously a bipartisan debacle, one of those only-in-Washington mutual spendathons limited only by the -- wait, at $700 billion over the next ten years, it appears to have been limited by basically nothing. Well, at least it's money well spent, right?  America's farmers deserve our support.  Maybe, but not like this. Heritage's Brian Reidl has seven reasons to avoid the farm bill.

FreedomWorks Urges Congress to Support Veto on Farm Bill

FreedomWorks supports President Bush’s decision to veto the Farm Bill. Last week the House and Senate approved the colossal $300 billion, 673-paged farm bill entitled the "Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008."

The Place for Pragmatism

I hit up the Reason magazine forum on libertarianism yesterday. (Mike Gravel was there! How could I resist?) As expected, it was pleasantly entertaining and somewhat silly – but didn't offer much hope for more practical-minded limited-government advocates. Much of the discussion got sidetracked on ancillary issues (Is it better to work in a factory than an office? Whither the poker vote?), and domestic policy was reduced, more or less, to talk about which federal agencies should be the first to get the guillotine. That's a lot of fun –- goodness knows the Department of Education is an under-performing bureaucratic behemoth, and getting rid of it used to be a conservative hobby-horse -- but it hardly takes into account current political realities. I'm certainly in favor of pushing boundaries, but it's unlikely to do much good unless it's grounded in something at least somewhat resembling the current political playing field.

On Energy, the Path is Clear: Lower Taxes, Less Regulation

Yesterday, I listened in to a blogger conference call with Peter Robertson, Vice Chairman of Chevron's board. Much of the call naturally centered on gas prices and, of course, the basic issues of supply and demand which drive pump prices. I can't say I agreed with his statements about the need for biofuels (I've been pretty clear on http://www.reason.com/news/show/

Key Vote "No" H.R. 6049, the Energy and Tax Extenders Act of 2008

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on H.R. 6049, the “Energy and Tax Extenders Act of 2008.”  H.R. 6049 extends more than 30 provisions in the tax code, many of them having to do with energy policy.  The bill attempts to cover the costs of the extensions by raising revenue through changes in the tax law relating to deferred income and the worldwide allocation of interest.  Yet, on net, the legislation generates roughly $2 billion in new taxes.
