This is not a story about policy or legislation. This is a story about journalism, and the all too cozy relationship between 'reporters' and the public officials they're supposed to hold accountable. It's been two weeks since Democrat State Senator Ginny Burdick of Oregon was to have held a town hall to answer questions on the current legislative session.
Dear FreedomWorks member,As one of our millions of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your U.S. Senators and urge them to vote NO on any amendment to the Senate budget that attempts to create a deficit-neutral reserve fund dealing with the collection of state sales and use taxes. The aim of such an amendment is to serve as a proxy vote for an internet sales tax scheme such as the Marketplace Fairness Act.
Ohio has become a Medicaid expansion Twilight Zone, as avowedly conservative Governor John Kasich works with progressive activists to deliver new entitlement benefits with money that doesn't exist.

FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe Debates Tea Party vs. Establishment on Fox News
Matt Kibbe appeared on Fox News Sunday on March 17 to debate Steve LaTourette, a former Republican Congressman who now leads the Republican Mainstreet Partnership. The debate centered around how the GOP can win elections in the future, and was a classic case of the Tea Party vs. the Establishment. As host and moderator Chris Wallace stated, "CPAC highlighted the disagreement for the [GOP] to broaden its base."
Despite every attempt by congressional Republican leaders to preemptively surrender, the fight to get a sane Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund only the necessary parts of government is not over. Senate Democrats and the White House, not content with victory, are pushing for even more spending and taxes, giving reformers an opportunity.
To hear the president tell it, you would have thought the world was going to end the day the sequestration went into effect. When the world actually went on and the president's dire warnings became even more laughable, the White House responded with the emotional maturity we've come to expect from this administration: they canceled White House tours.
