Congress Protects Itself from Itself

The basic principle behind the rule of law is that all laws must apply to all citizens equally. Unfortunately, Congress is trying to subvert this principle with regards to Obamacare.FreedomWorks members are being told that Congressmen, Senators, and their staffers can keep their federal health insurance subsidies. Several concerned citizens have received similar letters back from their legislators about this issue.

Shutdown Means Streamlining

There are a lot of myths about the looming government shutdown. The biggest one is that it is, in fact, a government shutdown. The country will not descend into anarchy, there will not be chaos in the streets (well, no more than usual) and, really, we don’t need to panic if it happens. Here’s the deal.

In September, Congress is Less Popular Than...

Happy Constitution Day!On this uniquely American day, how do the people view their government? New poll results indicate that Congress is still out of touch and has a long way to go before it represents its constituency.

Congress and Staff Should Beware Their Obamacare Bribe

Of all the problems with Obamacare, the one that should strike the most fear into the hearts of members of Congress is public reaction to their acceptance of a bribe to keep the law funded. Congress should reject the exemption the President offers them, which allows the federal government to pay for their exchange-based health insurance.

Syria: Knowledgeable Citizens Defeat D.C. Elites

Democracy and Power 112: Fidelity to LeadershipTo be elected, a politician must please his constituents. However, to be a powerful legislative force, a politician must be an obedient member of a party – Democrat or Republican. Since most constituents are busy making a living, raising families and focused on immediate community concerns, loyalty to the party most often prevails

New Poll Shows Marketplace Fairness Act Universally Opposed

A favorite quote of mine, by Benjamin Franklin, goes like this: “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”

Bureaucratic Dictatorship: ObamaCare's Independent Payment Advisory Board

Personal Freedom and Prosperity 110: The Rule of LawA government with moral and legal authority promulgates written rules and universally, impartially and uniformly enforces those rules providing a predictable and stable legal order on which to base economic and personal decisions.

Congress is less popular than...

For any American paying attention, it can hardly be a surprise that Congressional approval is at a low point. In fact, it is at an all time low. In a recent poll, only 10% of respondents approved of the job Congress is doing. To get an idea of how abysmally low that rating is, let’s take a look at some other data for comparison.

Despite Outcry, NSA Spy Program Will Continue

This weekend Edward Snowden, a low-level employee who worked for a major defense contractor, came out to the press and acknowledged that he was the source of the leaks behind the National Security Administration's controversial spy program. The negative reaction to these revelations of the past week have been swift and strong from average Americans, some elected officials, and tech companies who have been named as participants in the NSA's data gathering scheme.
