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

BY Wayne Brough

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.

Swelling Deficit Continues to Choke Taxpayers

The Congressional Budget Office recently stated that the budget deficit for this year will reach $407 billion—2.9 percent of the GDP—compared to last year’s deficit of $161 billion, or 1.2 percent of GDP. The CBO also predicted that the deficits in 2010 would reach $431 billion. Federal spending will also increase 8.3 percent in 2008 from 2007, according to the CBO, while revenues were stated to most likely be less in 2009 than those in 2007.

Famous Last Words: "They Are Adequately Capitalized"

On Sunday September 7, 2008 the U.S. government took control of the mortgage giants, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. These government sponsored enterprises (GSEs), which have steadfastly denied any government guarantee in their unending lobbying activities, control more than half of the nation’s mortgages. Yet the bailout is now official: they are now in conservatorship under the Federal Housing Finance Agency, leaving U.S. taxpayers exposed to potentially hundreds of billions of dollars in new government debt.

The U.S. Treasury said in an emergency announcement yesterday that it is taking temporary control of floundering mortgage lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The move is the latest chapter in a sorry story of regulatory failure, accounting fraud, and political cronyism.
