Ore. senator faces tricky path to re-election

BY Brad Cain

National Democrats have made it plain that one of their top targets in the 2008 Senate election will be Oregon Republican Sen. Gordon Smith, who's been reaching out more to moderate voters of late. But Smith could also face potential trouble within his own party at home. There are rumors that Smith might draw a primary challenge from the party's right wing. A national group that promotes fiscal conservatism is making noises about possibly bankrolling such an effort.

White House Posts FY 05 Earmarks Online

BY

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) today added "13,496 earmarks totaling more than $19 billion for Fiscal Year 2005 appropriations" to its online database. The site can be viewed at http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/earmarks/index.html. This is another important step forward in the effort to document, highlight, and eventually end the abuse and outright corruption in the appropriations process. It's a cool set up-- you can see the earmarks by state and program. Let the sun shine in!

Anguish on Wall Street as European stock markets push US off pole position

BY Stephen Foley

There is another new taunt in the "yah boo sucks" slanging match between the City of London and Wall Street. The value of European stock markets has eclipsed that of the US. The moment slipped past unnoticed last Thursday, but make no mistake, it was a historic occasion. Totting up the value of all the companies on the 24 stock markets of Europe, from west to east and taking in Russia and Turkey, you get $15.73 trillion. That's a nudge ahead of the total of US-listed companies, and you probably can't have said that since the end of the First World War.

Sarbanes-Oxley Legacy: Euro Markets Surge Past U.S.

BY

Europe now has the world's largest public stock market capitalization, according to the Financial Times. This hasn't been the case since before the First World War. It is a sorry state of affairs that is, in part, the result of Sarbanes-Oxley regulations and a punitive tax code that is driving multinational corporations away from our shores.

Key Vote “NO” on Rep. Pelosi's Proposal to Remove TPA from Columbia Free Trade Agreement

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to VOTE “NO” on Rep. Nancy Pelosi's procedural vote to override Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) for the proposed Columbia Free Trade Agreement. If successful, she will circumvent the 90-day deadline Congress has to consider the agreement, effectively killing it.

Paul Ryan’s Budget Right for America

BY Troy Fullerton

I guess I’m a few days late in posting my response to an email I received from Congressman Paul Ryan’s office last week, but then again, I’m really late on posting anything these days. Seems that in response to the Democrat Party budget that will include the LARGEST TAX INCREASE IN AMERICAN HISTORY, ranking Budget Committee Republican and Wisconsin’s favorite son, Rep. Paul Ryan, has decided to put forth his own budget plan.

A matter of rights

BY Kathy Hartkopf

The General Assembly is considering a bill that would ban smoking on private property. From a property rights prospective, House Bill 259, "Prohibit Smoking in Public & Work Places" is a radical proposal. This proposed legislation takes an activity that is legal in North Carolina and makes it illegal on private property. The bill would actually make it illegal for business owners to smoke in their own businesses, even if they are there alone, even if they are the only employee.
