Paul Ryan on the war on Poverty "Poverty is Winning."

Wednesday, in the critical battleground state of Ohio, Paul Ryan spoke about his plan for the 46 million Americans who live in poverty saying that "in this war on poverty, poverty is winning.” With one in six Americans living in poverty, Ryan said that he and Mitt Romney would help them join (or rejoin) the middle class. "Many of those living in poverty today were in the middle class just a few years ago.

Totally Irresponsible Governance - The Fiscal Cliff

The essence of Government is power; and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse.- James Madison, Speech in the Virginia State Convention of 1829-1830

Happy Deficit Day 2012!

September 10th, 2012 is National Deficit Day. That means that September 10th is the date on which the United States government is out of money for the year. Every single penny they spend for the rest of the year, explain economists James Harrington and Antony Davies, will be added to our debt. Deficit Day should ideally be on January 31st.

Where Walker Succeeds, Unions Fail and Wisconsin Wins

By: Jim Hoft and Andrea RyanNext Tuesday, Wisconsin will hold its recall election for Governor Scott Walker.  The impetus for this movement started early last year when the newly elected governor imposed bold changes in order to rescue Wisconsin’s deeply red budget.  As we have seen with other states in a fiscal mess, such as New Jersey, the only fix for the health of the state’s current and future economy is through a strong leader with a fearless drive to make the unpopular and difficult (but correct) decisions.  Enacting common sense economic principles should not make for a “pioneer”, yet decades of lavish spending in excess of state revenues has become the new norm, making actions based on common sense the new “radical”.

Senate Republicans Split Three Ways on Budget: "Federalists" vs. "Nationalists" vs. "RINOs"

It has been 1,126 days since the Democrat-led Senate passed a budget. Despite this embarrassing dereliction of duty, on May 16th Senate Democrats forced votes on four budget proposals authored by Republicans. The Republicans countered by forcing a vote on President Obama’s unfeasible plan that would drastically raise government spending and taxes (it was defeated unanimously). Democrats voted against every single Republican budget, despite having failed to offer one of their own.

Big Spender: The Truth about the Obama Administration’s Out of Control Spending

President Obama and his allies on the Left want you to believe that government spending is under control. They want you to believe that this economic downturn will only go away with government help. They want you to believe that the President is not a big spender. There’s just one problem. It’s not true.

The Last Time Senate Democrats Passed a Budget...

On May 16th, less than a month after our 3rd year without a passed budget, Democrats voted down FOUR Republican budget proposals, without even proposing an alternative. In the days leading up to the 3rd anniversary on April 29th, we asked our Twitter followers to share what was happening in the world the last time the Democrats passed a budget. We got tons of great responses! Most were quite funny, but some were a more serious reminder of why we need strong leadership in the Senate, and how the current leadership isn’t cutting it.

With Recall Vote Days Away - New Study Shows Walker's Reform Saved Wisconsin $1 Billion

Democrats had such high hopes just weeks ago that they would recall Governor Scott Walker and oust him from office. But their dreams are fading fast. With just two weeks to go before the election, Governor Walker holds a six point lead in the latest Marquette poll.

Can We the People Govern Ourselves?

There will always be a party for giving more to the rulers, that the rulers may be able in return to give more to them.  Hence as all history informs us, there has been in every State & Kingdom, a constant kind of warfare between the governing & governed:  the one striving to obtain more for its support, and the other to pay less.  And this has alone occasioned great convulsions, actual civil wars, ending either in dethroning of the Princes, or enslaving of the people.

Real Conservative Senators Should Vote For Senator Rand Paul's Budget

The Senate is expected to vote on four competing budget plans introduced by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) today. Passing an annual budget for the federal government is a fundamental responsibility of Congress. Yet under Harry Reid’s leadership, the Senate has not passed a budget in over three years and no Democrats in the Senate have even offered a budget proposal this year.
