Production Tax Credit (PTC): Unfair

The federal government has been subsidizing the wind industry for almost two decades under the Production Tax Credit (PTC). Despite costing taxpayers over $1billion annually and providing for less than 3 percent of total electricity generation in the country, the president insists on extending the program indefinitely.

Obama’s Coercion versus Paul Ryan’s Individualism

Personal Freedom and Power 101:  Personal PowerThe distinctive principle of Western social philosophy is individualism.  It aims at the creation of a sphere in which the individual is free to think, to choose, and to act without being restrained by the interference of the social apparatus of coercion and oppression, the State. All the spiritual and material achievements of Western civilization were the result of the operation of this idea of liberty.-Ludwig von Mises

Great news: Ron Paul's Audit the Fed bill passed the House!  But this is where the hard work really begins. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has introduced a bill identical to H.R. 459 in the Senate. It's S. 202, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2011. Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) vows not to put Audit the Fed to a vote in the Senate.

Joint Letter Supporting Point of Order Against Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad's Spending Limits

Dear Senator, We are deeply concerned that Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) is prepared to exceed the overall spending limit set out in the Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA).  In the absence of the Senate adopting a budget for fiscal year (FY) 2013, the BCA requires the Senate Budget Committee Chairman to establish spending limit in line with the March 2012 Congressional Budget Office (CBO) baseline.

Lights Out: War On Coal Continues Unabated

Let us remember that this was the plan all along. And it's working.Patriot Coal Company filed for bankruptcy on July 9, 2012 as coal prices have plummeted from reduced demand resulting from low natural gas prices and new regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). (emphasis mine)This is probably just the beginning.

Government Meddling Leads to Another Failure

President Obama has made statements recently that the government is essentially the force behind business success, not the entrepreneurs investing their own money and risking potential failure. If he’s right, and the government is so fantastic at making businesses successful, why are the ‘green’ energy companies they showered with millions of loans and grants sputtering, or closing their doors?
