Reconciliation, What Is It?

If you've been paying attention to what's going on in Washington recently, you've probably heard the word "reconciliation".  What is it?  It's a legislative process intended to allow a budget bill to be considered without filibuster.  In the Senate, it restricts debate to 20 hours and amendments are limited.  Without the option of filibuster, a bill in the Senate would only require 51 votes to pass.  A super majority of 60 votes is required to end a filibuster to move legislation normally.

Key Vote No: Obama-Pelosi-Reid Budget

Click here to download the PDFOn behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on the Obama-Pelosi-Reid budget being considered this week.  Their budget taxes too much, spends too much, and borrows too much.  And, potentially worst of all, it would open the door for socialized medicine and a massive energy tax to be enacted later this year without substantial debate through the reconciliation process.

Obama Adminstration "incorrect" about likely budget deficits

I used the word “incorrect” in the title because I’m feeling momentarily generous. A more precise word would probably have been “lied". Today’s news about deficits is, not surprisingly, much worse than the already-bad picture painted for us by the Obama administration and their ridiculously rosy economic forecasts. An AP article entitled “$1 trillion deficits seen for next 10 years” explains that:

St. Patrick's Day: Some Hope from Ireland

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!  Each year since I became interested in development economics, St. Patty's day has reminded me of the free market revolution that took place in Ireland in the nineties.  Ireland was the poorest economy in Europe then, but by 2006, it had the highest per capita GPD on the continent and economic growth rates of 9 percent or higher.  How did they achieve it?  They massively reduced the size and role of government in their society.  They cut taxes, abolished agencies, cut spending, and stopped inflation.  They moved from one of the least free states in Europe to the freest.

National Debt Roars Past $9 Trillion

BY

The news should have made banner headlines, but few paid attention as the U.S. national debt passed the $9 trillion mark this week. I suppose the lack of interest is understandable, since the citizens who will be stuck paying this bill are mostly in grade school. The sad thing: the national debt was "only" $5.735 trillion when George W. Bush took office in January 2001. We're on pace for the national debt to increase by more than 50% during his 8 year tenure as chief executive.
