USDA “Promotes” Its Way to Higher Prices

Have you heard of the Christmas Tree Promotion Board? What about the Mushroom Council or the Popcorn Board? Believe it or not, these are all ACTUAL federal programs that ruin free market commerce.

White House's FY 2019 Budget Proposes Big Reductions in Nondefense Spending After a Spending Deal That Increases Deficits

The White House unveiled its FY 2019 budget request this morning. Although it's incredibly unlikely that the budget request will become law, it does provide a window into the policy priorities of the Trump administration. Of course, the passage of the Bipartisan Budget Act, H.R. 1892, set the discretionary spending level for FY 2019 at $1.321 trillion -- $716 billion for defense discretionary and $605 billion nondefense discretionary. This level of spending is $153 billion higher than the pre-Bipartisan Budget Act spending caps.

Support the Energy Sovereignty Act, H.R. 4994

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to support the Energy Sovereignty Act, H.R. 4994, introduced by Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.). This bill would ensure that unelected bureaucrats at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) cannot bypass the will of your elected representatives in Congress.

Republicans Can't "Make America Great Again" By Bankrupting the Country

Republicans in Congress have retreated on their pledges to cut spending. How else should one interpret the passage of the Bipartisan Budget Act, H.R. 1892, last week? The bill busts the spending caps by $296 billion over two years ($165 billion for defense and $131 billion for nondefense). Congress added another $80 billion in disaster relief, bringing the total to at least $376 billion.

Victory for Trade as Administration Rejects Boeing's Crony Request

Last month, the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) voted unanimously against Boeing in a trade case it brought against its rival, Bombardier. Boeing had argued that Bombardier had illegally harmed their business by offering Delta Airlines a series of jets at a low rate. This claim was dubious, and was a clear attempt to try and eliminate their competition. The ITC’s decision is a victory for trade and anti-cronyism.

The Top 10 Reasons Why the McConnell-Schumer Spending Bill is a Bad Deal

The bill would blatantly disregard the Budget Control Act (BCA) of 2011 that requires Congress to adhere to budget caps – This bill goes above and beyond, busting the caps by nearly $300 billion over two years, more than twice that of the past two, two-year deals combined
