Make It Flake: Reloaded

Yesterday, House Republicans rejected a motion by Minority Leader John Boehner and new Minority Whip Eric Cantor to enact a short-term earmark moratorium only through February 16.  Unwilling to give up their pork just for three short months, Republicans can hardly try to pin the Big Spenders label on Dems, like they did earlier this year.

Detroit Bailout Bad for Free Trade

Proponents of funneling another twenty-five to fifty billion of taxpayer dollars to the failing U.S. auto industry justify their support by carping about potential job losses that would follow Chapter 11 filings.  Thankfully, people like Dartmouth associate dean and professor Matthew Slaughter understand that a short-sighted bailout would be far more harmful to our economy long-term, likely resulting in even greater future job losses.  In today's Wall Street Journal, Mr.

Key Vote "No" Big 3 Bailout

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to VOTE “NO” on the Big 3 Bailout.  The bill claims it will “create jobs, prevent large tax increases and cuts in state services, strengthen our nation’s manufacturing sector, and assist those struggling to find a job.”  However, by artificially propping up an outdated business model, the bill creates further hardship down the road and prevents these companies from making the hard, but much needed reorganization required to remain competitive.

Stop New Gas Taxes in Oregon

Oregon’s Governor Kulongoski just proposed a new increase in the gas tax, along with other hikes in vehicle titling fees, and annual registration fees.  The Governor says that his tax and spend plan is “the way to get Oregon out of this economic crisis.”  It’s hard to think of a time when spending money and taxing people more helped anyone in an economic crisis.  This kind of idea hasn’t worked at the federal level, and it won’t work in Oregon.

FreedomWorks Opposes $75 Billion Auto Industry Bailout

Since the 1970s, Detroit’s Big Three auto makers have failed to keep up in the global auto market. High labor costs and inflexible work rules, staggering legacy costs, an unwieldy dealer network, and a failure to overcome negative consumer sentiments have combined to bring the Detroit based auto manufacturers to their knees.

Future Looking Dim for the American Worker

Now that the presidential elections are over everyone is speculating over what the future holds for the United States. One thing to start considering is reappearance of the Employee Free Choice Act of 2007. After its failure to pass in the Senate in June 2007 because Democrats did not have the 60 votes to pass it, the new Senate looks to be in their favor. The new Senate consists of 57 Democrats, 40 Republicans, and 3 votes soon to be decided in Minnesota, Alaska, and Georgia. Another election altering the future for the

FreedomWorks Fires Up Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) Effort in Georgia’s U.S. Senate Runoff Election

Atlanta, GA - While the majority of races were settled on election night, the outcome of the Georgia Senate race remains undecided.

With three contenders in the race to represent Georgia in the Senate, no candidate won an absolute majority. On December 2nd a mandatory runoff election will be held between Republican incumbent Saxby Chambliss and Democrat Jim Martin.

The stock market falls through holes in the TARP

In a press conference Wednesday, Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson announced a change in the federal “Troubled Asset Relief Program” (“TARP”), saying that the plan would now center around capital injections into banks rather than the purchase of distressed assets.
