Support the Global Trade Accountability Act, S. 177

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and strongly encourage them to cosponsor the Global Trade Accountability Act of 2017, S. 177, introduced by Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah). The Global Trade Accountability Act would require congressional review of any imposition of duties or other trade measures by the executive branch.

Trump's $10 Trillion Stimulus Plan

All of Washington seems to be in cardiac arrest over news reports late last week that Donald Trump is planning a budget featuring $10 trillion in cuts over the next decade. We can only hope and pray that the reports are accurate. This is an enterprise that has been borrowing $1 trillion a year for the past decade and is expected to continue to do so for years and decades to come. The national indebtedness will soon exceed $20 trillion, and everyone in Washington is in denial about this metastasizing cancer cell when they should be ordering radiation therapy before it kills off the economy. Yes, even in Washington, $10 trillion is a whole lot of money. It's roughly equal to the entire amount of debt that was accumulated by Barack Obama in eight years. The scaremongers say that cuts of this magnitude would have devastating effects on social programs and vital federal services. Wrong. Even with this overdue downsizing, the federal government would still grow in size over the next decade. It just wouldn't grow nearly as quickly as it is projected to if nothing at all is done.

How Republicans Can Avoid Repeating Their Mistakes on Health Care

Congressional Republicans have kicked off the process of repealing Obamacare, but it's unclear what the future of healthcare looks like. There's absolutely no question Obamacare failed, and Democrats' only alternative is to have more government involvement in healthcare.

Reforming CFPB Isn't Enough. Eliminate It.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has a positive-sounding name. But in five and a half years since its creation, the CFPB has proven that the agency is merely an excuse for a massive expansion of federal regulatory power. The CFPB doesn’t protect consumers, as its name suggests. Rather, the American people need protection from the CFPB.

A Path Toward Social Security Reform

Near the end of the 114th Congress, Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas) introduced legislation that would begin to address the severe fiscal problems that face Social Security. The most recent annual report from the Board of Trustees for the Social Security and Medicare Trust Funds explained that the two entitlement programs will not be able to pay full benefits to beneficiaries in the coming years.

President Trump Signs Executive Order to Provide Americans Relief from ObamaCare

Among President Donald Trump's first acts in the Oval Office on Friday was putting his signature on a rather lengthy executive order that deals a major blow to ObamaCare. The executive order states that it's the policy of the Trump administration to repeal the 2010 health care law and gives the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), presumably nominee Rep. Tom Price, M.D. (R-Ga.), who is awaiting Senate confirmation, "all authority and discretion available to them to waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation" of ObamaCare.

Celebrating Copyright Week

Today marks the conclusion of copyright week, where it’s time to remind policymakers of the balance needed in copyright law. Too often, recent policy changes have been used to benefit targeted groups rather than enhance social welfare, as initially outlined in the U.S. Constitution. Any copyright reforms must include a broad range of interests that foster innovation and economic growth.

Trump Administration's Proposed Spending Cuts Are a Good Start

So-called "progressives" are absolutely losing their collective minds about proposed spending cuts that the incoming Trump administration is planning. The Hill reported Thursday that the administration, which will take power today at noon, has a blueprint that calls for $10.5 trillion in spending reductions over the next ten years.
