The Reality of America's Finances

When Washington raised the debt ceiling this week, the Beltway media breathlessly reported that the fiscal crisis had ended. Lawyers danced in hallways, bureaucrats twerked on the Metro, congressional aides kissed strangers in the streets — the Tea Party has been defeated! It was like VJ day for wonks.

The McConnell Mechanism: Congress Makes Obama a King for Three Months

Congress made President Obama a temporary king the other day. And the crown was placed upon his head by none other than the Senate's top Republican, Mitch McConnell. No joke. On October 16th, Congress passed, and the following day the president signed into law, a bill (H.R.2775) to temporarily suspend the U.S. Government's statutory debt limit and also temporarily shift Congress's borrowing power to the president.

Website Woes Indicate Waste as Obamacare Spending to Skyrocket

This morning, I walked through the rain to work. After arriving at the office, I proceeded to make myself a cup of coffee and log on to my computer.  The first thing I did was visit the Drudge Report to find out the big headline news today. What I found nearly made me throw my coffee at the computer screen.

Chart: Why Default Won't Happen

Default won't happen. This chart shows why the U.S. Government will not default on its debt, should it hit the statutory debt limit set by Congress (a limit that the Treasury Deparment suggests may be reached later this month).

What Current Affairs Reveal About Education

It’s as if current events are working together to reform education, or, at the very least, to make it evident to all Americans why reform needs to happen. Between the current government shutdown and the looming debt ceiling, it’s becoming more evident every day that the safest place for education is as far away from the federal government as possible.

Even the Press Doesn't Believe Obama Debt Spin

Yesterday President Obama gave a speech to the Business Roundtable organization in Washington, DC. The speech was carried by the major news networks for all to see, and see we did. During his speech we saw Obama try to spin like he's never spun before, so much so you might think he was trying to swing dance.

Tell Your Representative to Support the Full Faith and Credit Act!

Dear FreedomWorks member, As one of our millions of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your Representative and urge him or her to support the Full Faith and Credit Act, H.R. 807.  Introduced by Rep. Tom McClintock (CA-4), this bill would force the Treasury Department to prioritize necessary payments on the debt over all other government spending in the event that the debt ceiling is reached.
