Unfunded Promises, Unsustainable Spending

A recent article in USA Today detailed how the federal government "hides" billions of dollars of its debt by refusing to apply modern accounting practices. According to the article "Rules 'hiding' trillions in debt," by Dennis Cauchon, the "official" debt accrued by the federal government in 2006 was $248 billion, a great improvement upon the actual $1.3 trillion debt, ($1

Movements, Campaigns & Parties

BY Patrick Ruffini

Soren Dayton calls me out in response to my post on different modes of activism (movement vs. campaign). He thinks I lean very heavily to the campaign-centric view prevalent in the GOP these days (use the campaign to win the election, not build a long-term movement). The online left is a movement to reinvent and renew the Democratic party. The question for the GOP is whether we need something similar. A newly organized coalition, etc. I think that the answer is “yes.” Perhaps Patrick disagrees with me?

Gas Price Panderers

It is becoming a yearly tradition. Summer vacations cause an increase in driving and the gas supply can't keep up with the demand, leading to higher gas prices. Then Congress gives in to their constituents complaining about gas prices and legislates price controls by enacting ineffectual price gouging legislation. The current bill, which recently passed the House, comes down hard on those who sell fuel at "unconscionably excessive" prices while doing little to solve our energy problems.

Tax Hikes on the Horizon

Opinion Journal's Pete DuPont sees taxes as the single most important issue leading up to the 2008 presidential elections. While most Republican candidates seek an extension of President Bush's 2003 tax cuts, the major Democratic candidates are pushing for tax hikes on income, an increase in the alternative minimum tax rate and a rate increase on capital gains and dividends. This despite CBO reports of 8 million news jobs created and a 3.3% yearly GDP growth since the tax cuts were enacted.

Sunshine on Committees

The Republican Study Committee is proposing legislation that would bring more transparency to committee votes so that constituents can see how their member votes in committee. Mark-ups in committee are notoroiously hard for the public to find and is often how pork and earmarks are slipped into bills. Republican Leader John Boehner, Republican Whip Roy Blunt, and Deputy Republican Whip Eric Cantor are all co-sponsors, along with 72 other members who have joined on.

Key Vote NO on HR 1252, The Federal Price Gouging Protection Act

On behalf of nearly 850,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I respectfully urge you to VOTE NO on H.R. 1252, the Federal Price Gouging Protection Act sponsored by Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI). This legislation would make it a federal crime to sell crude oil, gas, natural gas or petroleum at a price that is “unconscionably excessive” or “takes unfair advantage” of unordinary market conditions. This legislation mandates severe fines for any violations including market manipulation, false price reporting and unconscionable prices.

Support True Competition for Internet Consumers

Please contact your legislators and ask them to support H1587, a bill currently before the North Carolina legislature.  This bill would make it difficult for local governments to get into the telecommunications market. H1587 would make it harder for local governments to use your tax dollars to enter the telecommunications market, improve transparency and reduce unfair advantages for for government entrants.

Impact of Rising Gas Prices

With all the hype around the "driving season" and legislation on the House floor seeking to fix price gouging, I thought this article from USA Today was appropriate. It looks at the individual economic impact the rising prices have on consumers with most economists concluding that, while an inconvenience, the impact is fairly limited. Read more about it here
