A Tale About the Hill and What's Below It

Monday will be a day that will live in infamy, when many of the hundreds of thousands of passengers using the DC Metro to commute to work will be unpleasantly surprised by the new and rapid rate at which their travel accounts are depleted. With the expected hikes starting Sunday, the peak hour rides will cost riders as much as $5 one way.

DISCLOSE Act Passes: Time to Turn Up the Heat on the Senate

We just received word that regretfully the DISCLOSE Act passed.  To see who did what, go to the roll call votes here.  As was noted yesterday, to cover the butts of any uncertain legislators, Reid has promised the Senate will take this up.  The DISCLOSE Act action center has been updated so that you can immediately turn your ire on the other chamber.

Call Congress: Oppose the DISCLOSE Act

As you've probably read and heard on the news or talk radio, there is a bill looming in Congress that poses a serious threat to our freedom of speech, as protected by the First Amendment. H.R. 5175, the DISCLOSE Act, is the brain-child of Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D, MD-8), who as Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is tasked with getting Democrats elected to Congress. The bill is a clear partisan political tool that would further expand government's reach into Americans' daily lives by restricting political giving and involvement in elections.

Card Check: "I'm not dead yet"

At least according to AFL-CIO President Richard Tumka, who is predicting card check will pass this year.  Trumka said that lawmakers would pass the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) as well as healthcare reform this year, despite Republicans having picked up enough votes in the Senate to sustain a filibuster. "I think we'll get health care done and I think we'll get labor law reform done before the year's up," Trumka said during an appearance on CNN.

Unions and Free Market Activists Find Common Cause on Health Care, For Now

President Obama has stepped up his rhetoric against the health care system, but fiscal deficiencies in his plan for a government take over have become increasingly apparent in recent weeks. Now, some on Capitol Hill are toying with the idea of taxing employee health benefits to subsidize the cost of government-provided care. But, as Americans learned during the collapse of GM, many union labor agreements provide extremely generous benefit packages to workers who are unlikely to support any proposal that might put their compensation at risk.
