FreedomWorks Rallies in Columbia, South Carolina for a Tax Refund!

COLUMBIA, S.C. On Saturday May 20, FreedomWorks activists joined Governor Mark Sanford, tax cut advocates and rank and file conservatives on the steps of the state capitol in Columbia. These grassroots activists were there to show support for the Governor’s plan to return the $500 million surplus to South Carolina’s taxpayers. Many of the big-government liberals and moderates in the state legislature are seeking to spend this surplus rather than returning it to the people.

This piece was originally published May 21, 2006 in the Washington Times. Assume you are a mid-level bureaucrat in a government regulatory agency, and you know your pay and title depend on how many regulations you are responsible for administering, and the number of people who work for you. Do you think you would push for more or fewer regulations?

Anti-Tax Group Helps to Give the Boot

A controversial tax vote nearly three years ago came back to bite Sen. Charles Starr -- a staunch conservative Republican who narrowly lost his seat last week to a newcomer. Winner Larry George, a property-rights advocate, says he couldn't have succeeded without help from anti-tax group FreedomWorks. The organization's political action committee spent more than $50,000 and put up a Web site hammering Starr for raising a host of fees and taxes.

Letter Rejects ‘Net Neutrality’

In a letter to members of the U.S. House of Representatives, a group of 13 organizations has called on legislators to avoid mandating “network neutrality,” a doctrine that would prohibit carriers from asking Web-based content and applications providers to pay higher prices for the management and optimization of bandwidth-intensive material such as high-definition movies and massive multiplayer games.
