Herman Cain's "999 Plan": The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

So what about Herman Cain's 999 tax plan? Turns out it has some very good aspects -- and some others, not so good. I'd give it two rousing cheers and one bronx cheer. The plan is called "9, 9, 9" because it would replace today's complicated and economically burdensome federal tax code with a simple, three-part system, consisting of a 9% flat tax on individuals, a 9% flat tax on businesses, and a 9% national retail sales tax.* That's it.**

Political Shenanigans and Deceit

Moral and Legal Authority Convinced that the people are the only safe depositories of their own liberty, and that they are not safe unless enlightened to a certain degree, I have looked on our present state of liberty as a short-lived possession unless the mass of the people could be informed to a certain degree. --Thomas Jefferson to Littleton Waller Tazewell, 1805.

Tell your Representatives to Cosponsor the National Right to Work Act

Dear FreedomWorks member, As one of our million-plus FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to cosponsor H.R. 2040, the National Right to Work Act. Introduced by Rep. Steve King (R-IA), the bill would help to end forced unionism in America. It would repeal provisions in the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and Railroad Labor Act (RLA) which authorize the imposition of forced union dues contracts on employees. The National Right to Work Act would ensure that nobody is forced to pay dues in order to get or keep a job.

Key Vote YES on Cement Sector Regulatory Relief Act

Dear FreedomWorks member, As one of our million-plus FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your Representative and ask him or her to vote YES on H.R. 2681, the Cement Sector Regulatory Relief Act. Introduced by Rep. John Sullivan (R-OK), the bill would prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations from coming into effect which would place burdensome regulations on the cement industry. If the EPA moves forward with their unnecessary cement MACT rule, it could cost thousands of jobs and hamper economic growth.

Wall Street Protesters Should Instead Focus on the Federal Reserve

I’ve been closely following the loosely organized Occupy Wall Street protests on social media sites over the past few weeks. Now, I’m all for citizen activism and freedom of assembly, but I’m still unconvinced that most of these protesters know what exactly they're protesting. They’re angry about the state of the economy and rightfully so. While I sympathize with their frustration towards our weak economy, their anger is largely misdirected. They would be better off to pick up and move their protests down a few blocks to the New York Federal Reserve building.
