A Fiscally Responsible Idea from Europe That America Should Adopt

As Congress approaches the debt ceiling debate, conservatives in both chambers should look for outside-the-box approaches to address federal spending. It's simply not enough to make cuts to nondefense discretionary spending, which, over the next ten years, represents less than 13 percent of all federal outlays. Mandatory spending, or direct spending, however, represents nearly 65 percent of outlays and is what is largely driving deficits higher.

How the Treasury Will Address the Debt Ceiling

As part of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 that was enacted in November of that year, the debt ceiling was suspended until March 15, 2017. As of March 16, 2017, the debt ceiling is now back in place, requiring Congress to take action to raise it by some time in Fall (likely October or November).

Trump, Congress And The Debt Ceiling

The debt ceiling has been a source of contention between the legislative branch and the executive branch for years. As president, Donald Trump will have to work with Congress to raise or suspend the debt ceiling, which will be reached this summer because of the irresponsible spending and policies of presidents and Congresses past. With Trump as president, and Republicans controlling both the House and Senate, the opportunity exists to advance a conservative agenda while increasing the debt ceiling.

FreedomWorks Key Vote No on the Bipartisan Budget Act

As one of over 6.9 million FreedomWorks activists nationwide, I urge you to call your representative and senators and demand that they vote against the disastrous “Bipartisan Budget Act”. Because this bill not only spends well in excess of the budget caps but also suspends the debt ceiling without any major spending reforms, this vote will be weighted double on our Online Congressional Scorecard.

Here's Why the U.S. Can't Default

Tick-tock, the debt ceiling deadline is fast approaching, leading, as ever, to the fevered warnings of default from the advocates of endless spending in and around the Beltway. It can't be said often enough: default on the national debt isn't going to happen. In fact, it's all but impossible.

The Next Speaker Must Do Something about Spending

With Paul Ryan still sitting squarely on the fence about whether or not he will run for Speaker of the House, the Republican leadership elections still remain largely up in the air. There has so far been a troubling inability of the conference to identify a suitable candidate who embodies the values that are important to an open congressional process, and who could garner enough support to actually win the election.

Don’t Worry About Default

As the nation once again nears its borrowing limit, we are starting to see all the old talking points intended to bully representatives into unconditional support of incurring more debt.

Tell Your Representative: to Support the Default Prevention Act

As one of our more than 6.9 million FreedomWorks activists nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative today and ask him or her to support Representative Tom McClintock’s Default Prevention Act, H.R. 692. This simple, common-sense piece of legislation would remove any possibility of defaulting on our national debt in the event that we reach our statutory debt limit.
