Affordable Housing Fund Not So Affordable

David Broder wants President Bush to sign on to a bill that would create an Affordable Housing Trust Fund.  But well intentioned measures like this are rarely good ideas.  Government-sponsored housing doesn't have a particularly excellent track record.  FreedomWorks has noted this as a key vote, and provided a number of reasons why it's a bad idea.

Bush and the GOP Health-Care Strategy

I've got a piece in NRO today arguing that although Democrats are bad on S-CHIP, conservatives, at least those with a free-market bent, need to be willing to call out Bush for his position as well.  The Democrats have won this issue in part by painting Bush and the rest of the GOP as "against S-CHIP," but the truth is, the Republicans want to expand the program too.

Key Vote to Sustain President Bush's Veto of SCHIP

On behalf of nearly 850,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I write to urge you to sustain the President’s veto of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).  The President was right to veto this scheme that would expand government healthcare coverage to include groups of people up to 300% above the poverty line and never intended to be covered by this plan.

Talk, Talk, Talk: The Fairness Doctrine

Talk may be cheap, but it doesn’t deserve to be hit with cheap shots.  Yet that’s exactly what some liberals want to do in response to the overwhelming success of conservative talk radio.  Led by the left-wing think tank, Center for American Progress, there’s a growing movement to reinstate the misleadingly named Fairness Doctrine, a rule that would give the government almost unlimited power over what broadcasters, especially those with conservative views, are allowed to say on air.

Permanent Internet Tax Ban Derailed on Capitol Hill

BY

Despite large bipartisan majorities in both Chambers, its looking like Congress won't even get to consider a permanent ban on discriminatory taxes on internet access. That's a shame, because the moratorium (which has been in place more or less since 1998) is a clear economic winner, and should become permanent law. Another multi-year extension just keeps uncertainty in the high-tech market. Here's a video montage from a Republican Senate press conference earlier this week calling for a permanent moratorium.

Urging my congressman to sustain the SCHIP veto

I just received an email from the Mark Udall campaign asking me to write a note to Congressman Udall (my representative) urging him to vote to override President Bush's veto of the SCHIP expansion. The campaign web site was even kind enough to provide me with a form letter and some writing tips. Needless to say, I made a few changes to their suggested letter. Here's what I sent Mark Udall...

GOP To Roll Over on S-CHIP?

Well, this isn't exactly surprising, but it's disappointing nonetheless.  House Republicans are looking for ways to get out of Bush's S-CHIP veto.

Politics of SCHIP not entirely obvious

A USA Today/Gallup poll released Monday suggests that the SCHIP veto may not be the public relations victory that advocates of socialized medicine and the president’s political rivals were hoping for.
