Obama Adminstration "incorrect" about likely budget deficits

I used the word “incorrect” in the title because I’m feeling momentarily generous. A more precise word would probably have been “lied". Today’s news about deficits is, not surprisingly, much worse than the already-bad picture painted for us by the Obama administration and their ridiculously rosy economic forecasts. An AP article entitled “$1 trillion deficits seen for next 10 years” explains that:

AIG: "A Mistake at the beginning"

The media and political furor of the week is the employee bonuses paid by AIG under contracts that existed prior to the government’s effective takeover of the company. And while the President as well as politicians of both parties are fulminating about the payouts, voter anger should be directed more at those very politicians than at AIG.

The End of American Oil Production?

The president's budget contains at least eight different tax hikes on domestic oil production.  From removing tax breaks to the implementation of cap-and-trade, the budget is sure to reduce domestic oil production.

Press Release

Key Vote "No" H.R. 1: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote NO on H.R. 1: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.  The compromises behind closed doors this week have made the bill no less acceptable to anyone who values fiscal responsibility and loves freedom. It is highly irresponsible of Congress to rush through a spending bill of this tremendous magnitude without taking the time to fully consider all its parts and give the public time for input.  In fact, the bill, which weighs in at over 1,000 pages, was only made available to Congress at 11 p.m. last night.  This is hardly the new era of transparency and openness promised by the new administration and provides plenty of cover for legislators to slip in their favorite pork projects.

An Open Letter to Majority Leader Reid and President Obama

To: Senate Majority Leader Reid, President ObamaAmericans face a time of great economic challenge, and have watched with equally great interest as the House of Representatives and now the Senate have crafted legislation designed to address that challenge. Last night, news of a compromise was announced in the Senate that would provide the sixty votes required to move the bill forward. As of the writing, however, the full details of the compromise have not been made public, and no legislative text has been published for open review.

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.
