Small Government Conservatives Abandoned By Bush Administration

After bailing out Wall Street, the White House has set the dangerous precedent that it is prudent to bail out entire industries. Billions of taxpayer dollars will be handed over to GM and Chrysler in exchange for a promise that the Detroit Three become profitable soon.

You better watch out

You better not pout....'cause Card Check's coming to town. The big news last night was President-Elect Obama's pick of Rep. Hilda Solis to head the Labor Department.  Politico has a good write-up here.   Her dyed in the wool Labor credentials and past voting history leave no doubt that she'll be behind Obama's Card Check agenda in a big way, paying off their union supporters. Rep.

Help Stop Arkansas Tax Hike

Arkansas is about to jump on the cigarette tax hike bandwagon, along with many other states in a growing national trend to fill state coffers with quick cash.   Legislators are considering a $.50 per pack hike in the Arkansas cigarette tax, bringing the cost to over $5.00 a pack, with a whopping 58% going to grow government.

Items of Note

As Brendan noted a post or two ago, more and more states are looking to nanny-state style "sin-taxes" to fill budget holes.  I want to point readers to an excellent WSJ article from the wayback machine in August.  The article takes a quick look at the repercussions of cigarette taxes in states like Maryland and New Jersey - rampant black markets, hurt businesses, and none of the promised revenue:

FreedomWorks Calls on Virginia to Cut the Budget, Not Raise Taxes

When states are faced with a budget deficit, the fiscally prudent solution is to tighten the budget and cut bureaucratic waste before increasing taxes on strapped citizens. Virginia is currently facing a $2 billion budget shortfall, which is due in part to over-spending when times were good. FreedomWorks is disappointed that Gov. Timothy Kaine has proposed a 100 percent increase in the state cigarette tax.

Grassroots Revolt Stops Auto Bailout in Senate

Americans are sick of seeing hundreds of billions in tax dollars used to bailout irresponsible and poorly managed companies. After Congress received an earful from voters, it appears members of the House and Senate have lost their appetite for more bailouts.

Detroit 3 Bailout Update

For anyone interested, here are the final vote counts from last night.  There was an unsurprisingly geographic pattern to the conservatives (who otherwise claim they believe in fiscal responsibility, except when it affects them) who voted to bailout the Detroit 3.

Key Vote "No" on Detroit 3 Bailout

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to VOTE “NO” on the Detroit 3 Bailout.  The legislation will further nationalize private industry and undermine our free enterprise system.  In a market economy, companies should be allowed both to profit when they provide what the consumers want, and fail when they do not.  Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac showed us exactly what happens when profits are privatized, but losses are socialized.  This proposal leads GM, Ford, and Chrysler down that same path.

Efforts Build Grassroots Army in the Peach State

When FreedomWorks saw that Georgia’s Senate race would be determined with a special run-off election on December 2nd, we immediately jumped at the opportunity to grow the Georgia organization from one chapter in Congressional District 10, to a state-wide network of dedicated leaders and activists.  It was soon apparent that the Saxby Chambliss – Jim Martin race was going to be huge.

FreedomWorks Launches Grassroots Campaign to ‘Make it DeMint’

FreedomWorks believes Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) is the best choice for the open seat on the Senate Finance Committee. The Senate Finance Committee is one of the Senate’s most influential, with jurisdiction over taxation, healthcare, trade, and entitlement programs. It is up to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to appoint a Republican Senator to the open seat.
