Issue Analysis

FreedomWorks Foundation Releases Updated Version of From High Seas to Highway Robbery

In July 2015, FreedomWorks Foundation published an issue brief, From High Seas to Highway Robbery: How Civil Asset Forfeiture Became One of the Worst Forms of Government Overreach, which documented the history of civil asset forfeiture and how it came to be used so frequently. In the more than four years since the publication of this issue brief, several states have passed reforms to protect innocent individuals from civil asset forfeiture. There has also been a case at the Supreme Court that touches on the issue.

Dumpster Fire of the Month: House Democrats' Rules Allow for a Suspension of the Debt Limit

Tucked away in the rules that House Democrats rolled out at the beginning of the 116th Congress is a provision that temporarily suspends the debt limit if the House of Representatives passes a budget resolution. The provision is what’s known as a self-executing rule. This may be legislative inside baseball, but it's a rather radical change to the rules that differs from even from a similar rule employed in the past.

Don’t Let Unelected Bureaucrats Subvert Democracy

On Obama’s last day, hundreds of “midnight regulations” were secretly filed by multiple regulatory agencies. One was the FDA’s Smokeless Tobacco Rule (21 CFR Part 1132). This proposed rule would effectively ban smokeless tobacco made in America. They proposed this rule covertly, hoping you would miss your chance to make your voice heard.

Washington, D.C.'s Unaffordable Childcare Regulation Highlights National Licensing Problem

The saying, "It's the thought that counts," is a lame excuse when it comes to bad gifts and an even worse way to justify public policy. Lawmakers and bureaucrats continuously impose new regulations that often sound good. Yet policymakers too often fail to consider obvious economic ripple-effects, many of which hit hard-working Americans like tsunamis. There is no better example than occupational licensing standards, such as the District of Columbia's new requirement that all childcare workers obtain a four-year degree.

John Oliver and Title II: A Bad Combination

The internet has been buzzing about late-night talk show comedian John Oliver’s resurgence of interest in the regulations on internet broadband providers, about which he had an extended monologue on his show this week. But his misguided call-to-action has already had repercussions, including cyber-attacks on the FCC’s website, ruining the ability for them to receive comments on what the public thinks of the ”Restoring Internet Freedom” proposal presented by Ajit Pai.

John Oliver Should Be on PBS

John Oliver has once again waded into the Internet regulation battle, arguing that the Federal Communications Commission should retain former President Barack Obama's Internet regulations to prevent Internet service providers from prioritizing content in exchange for payment by content providers.

Free Market Flying is Still Grounded by Misinformation

In the wake of the United debacle, advocates for increased airline regulation are coming out of the woodwork. Never let a good crisis go to waste, right? They assert that tighter controls, a heavier government hand, are the only solution to the apparent horror of flying created by deregulation in the 1970s.
