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.

Support the Making DI Work For All Americans Act, H.R. 6532

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to support the Making DI Work For All Americans Act, H.R. 6532, introduced by Rep. Todd Rokita (R-Ind.). This legislation would reform Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) by making it more fiscally responsible and ensuring it caters to those who truly need it.

All the Lights Are Flashing Red on America's Fiscal Situation

The alarm is sounding once again on federal spending, and few in Congress are paying attention serious problems that America faces if it doesn’t get the nation’s finances into order.

Trustees Report Confirms Looming Social Security and Medicare Insolvency

It is no secret that Social Security and Medicare will soon be insolvent. The updated Social Security and Medicare Trustees Report released earlier this month has confirmed that insolvency is still imminent, and will come even sooner than anticipated.

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.

Social Security is Going Bankrupt

There are no longer any convenient ways of avoiding the issue. Social Security is going bankrupt. In order to ensure that it doesn’t take the rest of the country down with the ship, Congress is going to have to grit its teeth, swallow hard, and grab a firm hold of the proverbial third rail of American politics. It is time.

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.

Congress Can Finally Reform Social Security. In Fact, There's No Choice.

Every time Republicans talk about addressing the impending disaster of Social Security, as its reserves dry up, Democrats characterize their attempts to protect and preserve Social Security as attempts to cut benefits. If they took the same tack in a medical situation, they might say your oncologist is recommending cutting you open and removing part of your body (namely, a cancerous tumor).

A Path Toward Social Security Reform

Near the end of the 114th Congress, Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas) introduced legislation that would begin to address the severe fiscal problems that face Social Security. The most recent annual report from the Board of Trustees for the Social Security and Medicare Trust Funds explained that the two entitlement programs will not be able to pay full benefits to beneficiaries in the coming years.

Trump Administration's Proposed Spending Cuts Are a Good Start

So-called "progressives" are absolutely losing their collective minds about proposed spending cuts that the incoming Trump administration is planning. The Hill reported Thursday that the administration, which will take power today at noon, has a blueprint that calls for $10.5 trillion in spending reductions over the next ten years.
