House Democrats' Medicare for All Proposal Eliminates Private Health Insurance and Will Require Massive Tax Increases

This week, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) introduced the Medicare for All Act, H.R. 1384. The bill would completely eliminate private health insurance and expand vastly expand Medicare to every American. This proposal would, given all of the medical services would capture, quite literally be a complete government takeover of health insurance. Put simply, if you’re one of the more than 156 million Americans who has a private health insurance plan, you won’t be allowed to have that plan after two years and you will pay more in taxes, regardless of your income level, should this bill become law.

Support the Retirement Freedom Act, H.R. 6703 and S. 3560

On behalf of FreedomWorks activists nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and senators ask them to support and co-sponsor the Retirement Freedom Act, H.R. 6703 and S. 3560, introduced by Rep. Gary Palmer (R-Ala.) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). The bill would decouple Social Security benefits from Medicare Part A enrollment, allowing individuals if they so choose to to opt out of Medicare Part A without losing access to their Social Security benefits.

Almost 62 Percent of Federal Spending in 2018 Is Baked in the Budgetary Cake

Fiscal conservatives rightly opposed the Bipartisan Budget Act, H.R. 1892, because it blew through the spending caps by nearly $300 billion over two years and set the tone for more long-term spending by increasing the baseline at which Congress will budget. Still, this two-year budget deal only covers discretionary spending for FY 2018 and FY 2019 and doesn't touch mandatory spending, which includes programs like Medicare and Social Security whose funding runs on autopilot.

Growing Guts Cured by Growing Corporate Gluttony?

Deficit spending by the federal government is growing almost as fast as the waistline of average Americans according to recent data. While it is no secret that obesity rates in the country have been on the rise, new information reveals the obesity epidemic is reaching unprecedented proportions. Nearly two-thirds of adults and one-third of children are considered overweight or obese, and that number is projected to rise dramatically in the near future.

Cronyism is Killing America

The growth of America’s government may soon be outpaced by growth of the average waistline new indicators reveal. Rates of obesity have been increasing over the past several decades, but are now reaching some incredible levels. Currently it's estimated that well over one-third of adults are classified as obese and nearly two-thirds are classified as overweight. Perhaps more distressing is the recent discovery that one in six children are suffering from obesity.

The White House's Pro-Growth Budget

Last week, the White House unveiled its budget proposal for FY 2018. The proposal has been received coldly by most in Congress, including many Republicans. The budget isn't perfect, but it does begin to bend federal spending slightly downward over the next ten years, creating a $16 billion surplus in FY 2027. The biggest criticism from policy wonks is that the budget relies on 3 percent economic growth, in part, to balance the budget. The increased economic activity would increase revenue to the federal government.
