President Begins to Trim Budget

The president announced today that he plans to cut $17 billion out of the budget.  It's great to see the president living up to his promise of scouring the budget "line by line" to make cuts.  It's a start, but it is only a tiny fraction of the $3.4 trillion budget.  In fact, the cuts amount to one half of one percent of planned spending.  The White House says they are not done yet though, so hopefully we will see some more cuts soon.

Save the D.C. School Voucher Program

A bunch of us here at FreedomWorks are heading to a rally for the D.C. Opportunity Scholarships.  It's at 1pm at the Freedom Plaza down the street.  The voucher program was cut out of an omnibus spending bill earlier this spring and was blogged about here. The tragedy and irony surrounding this decision abound - President Obama said that he would make decisions about education reform based on programs that work, the D.C.

Obama to Eliminate Tax Breaks

The president recently announced plans to crack down on what he calls "corporate tax abuses."  He is seeking another $200 billion out of companies over the next ten years that do business internationally.  Whether he calls it closing a loophole or a tax hike, it will have the same effect as raising taxes by $200 billion on American businesses.  That might cause the elimination of more jobs, drive companies to more tax-competitive countries, and slow business in the United States.  Government should not tax and spend more, especially in a recession.

Obama's empathetic judicial poison

Barack Obama’s statement that “empathy” would be a key qualification he’d look for in a nominee to replace David Souter on the Supreme Court is not simply soft liberal thinking, it’s a direct attack on the rule of law, an abrogation of Obama’s oath of office – and entirely consistent with Obama’s prior statements. Obama’s statement about the process of selecting his nominee included this:

No more bailouts, Br'er Durbin?!?

Last week brought a rare victory for the free markets and the sanctity of private contracts: By a 51-45 vote, the Senate defeated a measure championed by Democratic Senator Dick Durbin (Illinois) which would have allowed judges to reduce the principle amount of a mortgage on a primary residence during a bankruptcy proceeding. Twelve Democrats, including Arlen Specter, voted against the plan.

Key Vote NO: Conference Report on S. Con. Res. 13

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on the Conference Report on S. Con. Res 13, the Obama-Pelosi-Reid budget.  Their budget taxes too much, spends too much, and borrows too much.  And, potentially worst of all, it would open the door for socialized medicine and a massive energy tax to be enacted later this year without substantial debate through the reconciliation process.No one voting for this budget—Democrat or Republican—will have any creditability in the future as a fiscal conservative.
