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.

Read Our Lips, House Republicans: Balance the Budget and Don't Raise Taxes

Today, FreedomWorks joins with other fiscally conservative groups in urging House Republicans to pass a budget that balances in ten years or less and which does not raise taxes.  [Note: The only budget plan FreedomWorks has seen to date that actually reflects these principles is the "Platform to Revitalize America" offered by tea-party-aligned Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky. This bold, principled plan would balance the budget in 5 years, eliminate 4 cabinet departments, shrink the government, and "stop the debt."] The following letter, signed by FreedomWorks, presents our case to House Republicans and affirms our committment to fiscal responsibility in government.

Yesterday President Obama unveiled his budget for 2013. The budget is filled with higher taxes and more spending, however something is missing, The D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program.  This program grants educational opportunities to mostly poor and minority students in Washington D.C.  The Heritage Foundation reported that “[t]he D.C. OSP has been highly successful. According to federally-mandated evaluations of the program, student achievement has increased, and graduation rates of voucher students have increased significantly. While graduation rates in D.C.

One Thousand Days without a Budget

President Obama’s State of the Union address this evening will mark the passage of the 1000th day since the Democrat-controlled Senate passed a budget. In his address this evening, the President will likely propose even more federal spending despite the enormous deficit and the unprecedented $15 trillion dollar national debt. Without a budget from our elected representatives to provide restraint to Washington bureaucrats, this increased spending will continue unchecked.
