FreedomWorks Applauds House Conservatives’ Energy Alternative

Washington, DC – “Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system,” then-Democratic presidential candidate Obama told the San Francisco Chronicle in January 2008, “Electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” House conservatives, on the other hand, led by Mike Pence (IN), John Shimkus (IL) and Fred Upton (MI) recently unveiled an “all of the above” plan that focuses on energy independence, creating more jobs and ultimately a cleaner environment—all this without increasing energy prices or mandating a national energy tax.

Michael Bennet can't decide: Unions or our nation?

Observers of Colorado Senator Michael Bennet have been wondering aloud how he could in 25 minutes make a decision to support Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor but still be unable after a few months of opportunity to consider the issue to take a position on “card check”, the Democratic plan to eliminate the requirement for a secret ballot to unionize a company and to force binding arbitration of contracts between companies and their unionized employees. As reports of a potential “compromise” come out, the positions of on-the-fence Democrats becomes increasingly important. And Michael Bennet is the poster child for “on the fence.”

FreedomWorks: Obama’s Economic Plan Stimu-less

Washington, DC – “Save and create” is the catch phrase of the hour. The Obama administration has continually used it as leverage against mounting new jobless data that further indicates Obama’s $787 billion debt stimulus plan has produced a lot of debt, but not a lot of jobs.In January President Obama and his economic team promised that if the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 passed, that unemployment would peak at 8 percent and that his recovery plan would “save or create three to four million jobs.”

Unsettling Science in the Health Care Debate

Settled science rarely is. Except to those with a vested policy interest in the debate. True to form, a recent diatribe by Michael F. Jacobson of the Center for Science in the Public Interest acknowledges none of the widely available data that conflict with his passionate crusade against table salt. However, to a debate that has endured for decades, Jacobson does bring a modern twist:

A Flat Debate on the Flat Tax

In comments to the Sacramento Bee late last week, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger magnanimously agreed to consider a proposal to maybe discuss a flat tax rate on income in California. Much like similarly surprising talk of ending marijuana prohibition, the news makes for great headlines, but taxpayers should avoid any real optimism for the time being.While Schwarzenegger cleverly pays lip service to what some consider the holy grail of tax code reform, at a suggested flat rate of 15 percent, he has actually proposed a massive tax increase. Currently, even the wealthiest Californians pay “only” 9.3 percent. In the seven states where a flat tax is already in effect, the average rate is just 4.1 percent.

Broadband Policies Should Promote Competition, Not Big Government

The Federal Communicatiions Commission (FCC) recently requested comments on a Notice of Inquiry entitled, "A National Broadband Plan for Our Future."  FreedomWorks Foundation filed comments in this proceeding, urging the FCC to avoid regulatory impediments on broadband deployment.  The broadband market is dynamic and fast paced; new FCC regulations could hamper this growth and reduce the vital capital investments required to expand the nation's broadband networks.  Rather than attempting to apply old monopoly based models to today's competitive markets, the FCC should focus on removing barriers to competition, implementing competitive solutions to policy questions, and allowing the private sector to more effectively allocate scarce broadband resouurces to the most highly valued uses.  In addition, efforts to establish "net neutrality" should be avoided, because they threaten the ability to manage dynamic networks effectively.

FreedomWorks Foundation Urges FCC to Adopt Market-Based Broadband Policies

FreedomWorks Foundation recently filed comments on the Federal Communications Commission's Notice of Inquiry, "A National Broadband Plan for Our Future."  Our comments focus on the importance of avoiding excessive regulation and promoting a dynamic and competitive marketplace that encourages broadband deployment.  The study concludes:"To date, the internet has evolved relatively free from federal regulation.  This flexibility has created an important resource that continues to evolve to meet a growing demand among consumers and businesses, and a rational broadband policy framework that promotes competition and innovation will facilitate this process.  Moreover, that demand and the data-intensive content of the broadband world have generated new products that may require new tools for network management.  It is not in the public’s interest to give the government the job of controlling this evolution.  The future of broadband should be determined by those using the network, as should decisions on handling the burgeoning flow of information over the internet."Click here to see the FreedomWorks Foundation's comments in their entirety.

Stimulus Success? Higher Unemployment

The unemployment rate hit 9.4 percent last month—a 26 year high.  111 days after the passage of the stimulus bill $43.7 billion of it has been spent while over 2 million jobs have been lost.  Today the president announced that they will accelerate the rate of spending and save or create 600,000 jobs over the next hundred days.
