“Rock Star” Obama A Liberal by Record

The hoopla over Barack Hussein Obama as a presidential candidate is almost deafening if you tune on television news. What’s the fuss? Leadership and experience should be the top two qualifications to become U.S. President. There are alot of other categories I could fill in but Obama wouldn’t fit any of them.

State Education Board to lobby for school choice again

BY Molly Walsh

As pitches go, it's a hard sell. But Vermont Education Commissioner Richard Cate will again go to the Legislature when it convenes in January to propose that the state expand school choice -- a proposition that flopped decisively last time around. This time, Cate and the Vermont Education Board are considering a proposal that calls for expansion of public school choice at the high school level only; a broader bill failed to pass in the most recent session. "The board has asked me to take school choice back, and so we will be doing so," Cate said.

Pandering to Ignorance

This op-ed originally appeared in The Washington Times on Dec. 8, 2006. If the price of oranges increases, would you expect the quantity sold to rise or fall? I expect most of you reading that question would answer, "sales would fall," because you were either taught the law of demand or intuitively understand that when prices rise people will spend less (there are a few rare exceptions).

Bush Tax Hikes?

BY Cesar Conda

Rumors abound that the Bush administration might be open to accepting tax increases as part of a budget or entitlement-reform compromise with the Democrats. According to Fred Barnes of The Weekly Standard, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson “is believed to be receptive to a deficit-reduction deal, for instance, that would raise the top rate (now 35 percent) on individual income and/or the payroll tax cap, in return for spending restraint and entitlement reforms.”

Season’s Greetings from FreedomWorks Washington

2006 has been a productive year for FreedomWorks Washington. Some of our highlights include: A FreedomWorks Day at the Capitol in Olympia. Activists participated in a tour of the newly renovated capitol, listened to policy briefings from some of the state’s premier think tanks, and had the opportunity to personally lobby their legislators for lower taxes and less government.

National Industry Front Groups and Lobbying Firms Campaigning for Michigan Cable Legislation

National industry front groups and lobbying firms connected to AT&T are campaigning for the passage of HB 6456 in Michigan. The bill would adjust the way that cable franchises are awarded in the state in light of efforts by AT&T and other telecommunications companies to compete with cable providers. Franchises are currently negotiated on a per municipality basis while the bill would setup a statewide franchising system, under which any existing franchises could be cut immediately. There is a potential that local communities could lose as much as $47 to $57 million in revenue from changes in the franchising process. While AT&T has already come out in the press in support of the bill when it stated that it would not invest money or create jobs in Michigan if HB 6456 does not pass, it is also making use of national lobbying firms and industry front groups to advocate for the passage of the bill in a more subtle manner in which AT&T appears at first glance not to be backing the effort.
