Sanford Rejects Bailout

South Carolina's Governor Mark Sanford and some other Governors like Louisianna's Governor Bobby Jindal opposed federal economic stimulus money early on when the bill was still being passed around the Hill.  Despite the fact that, like many other states, South Caroline is facing budget shortfalls and some belt tightening, Governor Sanford recognized how accepting cash now would mean even bigger budget problems down the road.

Why Are You REALLY Opposed to the Stimulus?

Opening my public policy class last night, the professor brought up an interesting question regarding the "stimulus" package: what seems to be the public's response and why are they reacting that way? My interaction with the public and perusal of media sources seems to indicate that there are many Americans discontent with this debt plan and the reasons vary.

CBO: Obama Stimulus Will Hurt the Economy

The CBO says that the Obama/Reid/Pelosi Debt Plan will actually do more long-term harm to the economy than if government did nothing, the Washington Times reports (h/t Club for Growth):

Obama Legislature's Ghost Writer?

This morning I was reading an interesting article in The Washington Times.My favorite paragraph:Sen. Susan Collins, Maine Republican, told reporters after meeting with the president that she thinks the White House should have written the stimulus bill instead of offering broad principles to Congress for it to craft the plan.I hope this is sarcasm, but I fear even my naturally optimistic attitude won’t allow that.

Press Release

Key Vote No Ensign/McConnell Fix Housing First Amendment

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on Senator Ensign’s Fix Housing First amendment to H.R. 1, as promoted by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.  The Senator claims this act would “fix” the housing problem, considered to be at the root of so much of our current economic pain.  However, far from fixing anything, this plan would create even more problems and rather than letting the market naturally adjust, will merely delay recovery creating bigger problems in the future.

Why Pork and not Economics?

Many of those who have been criticizing Obama's stimulus package have been arguing that it's filled with pork that won't create jobs or help to end the recession.  That's true.  But, the really important issue with the stimulus is that it just won't work and I'd like to hear a lot more about that from the media.

You better watch out

You better not pout....'cause Card Check's coming to town. The big news last night was President-Elect Obama's pick of Rep. Hilda Solis to head the Labor Department.  Politico has a good write-up here.   Her dyed in the wool Labor credentials and past voting history leave no doubt that she'll be behind Obama's Card Check agenda in a big way, paying off their union supporters. Rep.
