The Housing Bailout Backlash

BY Luke Mullins

With the national housing crisis gathering steam, a growing number of lawmakers and economists have signaled increasing support for a bailout of struggling homeowners. But while images of vacant houses and panicked borrowers have triggered sympathy—not to mention political enthusiasm—for a taxpayer-funded rescue, objections to big-government intervention have created a small but spirited backlash against it.

The Biofuel Brew Ha-Ha

BY Peter Suderman

In Germany, they call it "liquid bread." Here in the U.S., frat boys and hipsters cultivating an ironic air call them brewskies. Most of us just refer to it as "beer." But whatever your name for the stuff, there's little point in denying that people in both countries love their beer. The difference right now, however, is that while we Americans can continue to toss 'em back as we always have, German beer prices are skyrocketing. Who or what is the culprit? Corporate greed, perhaps, or an alcohol tax designed to push German beer drinkers to kick their six-pack habit?

FreedomWorks: Will Democrat Candidates Talk About Retirement Crisis?

Of all the topics that I hear being discussed by the Democrats on the campaign trail, there is one set of issues that seems to never be brought up: Social Security and comprehensive entitlement reform. Issues which in my opinion, are probably the most pressing to our nations future generations. There was a great post today from FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe on the FreedomTalks blog, discussing this issue in more detail.

New York Has a Spending, Not Revenue, Problem

< p>For nearly a decade, New York state has enjoyed record tax receipts courtesy of the bull run on Wall Street.  During good economic times, when treasury coffers are full, it is easy to be a legislator with plenty of taxpayer cash available to fund pet projects and reward political allies.    < p class="MsoNormal">Unfortunately for taxpayers, the breakdown in budget discipline during good times creates a cycle of government expansion and higher taxes.  Every revenue increase is met with more spending, but when things slow down, state taxpayers are on the hook to cover h

The Many Unintended Consequences of Biofuel Subsidies

Over at Reason, I make the argument that biofuel subsidies are making beer -- yes, that all important, all-American brew of choice -- more expensive. But that's not all their doing. As this NYT editorial today points out, they're also making food, which, no matter how much you love beer, is a wee bit more important, more expensive in third-world countries.

Key Vote “YES” on Sen. DeMint’s Amendment to Senate Housing Bill

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to VOTE “YES” on Senator Jim DeMint’s amendment (#4474) to the Senate Housing Bill. This amendment would strike language in the bill that is misguided and could lead to serious problems.

How to Get the Goverment to Buy You an iPod

So it looks like the government can't even manage something as basic as employee purchases using government-issued credit cards. You've got federal employees running up tabs for iPods, luxury dinners, and dating services, and $2 million worth of purchased stuff unaccounted for. In the grand scheme of our $3 trillion federal budget, that's not a lot of money.

U.S. Gets Points For Telecom Policy

Turns out all the criticism of U.S. broadband policy (Obama mentioned in in a recent speech) may not be warranted.  According to the New York Times, "European researchers say that the Internet infrastructure of the United States is one of the world’s best and getting better." How does the U.S. stay ahead despite somewhat lower average connection speeds?
