A Stealth Budget Bill

BY Matt Kibbe

President Obama is insisting on arcane procedural language tucked away in the budget resolution conference report that will dramatically expand the federal government's control over your personal health care decisions and our nation's health care system, all without a single hearing or a public debate.

Check out this letter in which members of Congress threaten Glenworth Financial's president William Frey likely over his opposition to the strangely named "Helping Families Save Their Homes Act of 2009."  An article by Frey in the Washington Times on the act can be found here.

EPA, Waxman-Markey Join Forces to Raise Energy Costs

New FreedomWorks member and geophysicist, Dennis Henke of Wichita, KS is testifying today before the EPA at a hearing about the regulation of CO2 - carbon dioxide, gas we all exhale and that the EPA recently declared to be a harmful greenhouse gas worthy of regulation under the Clean Air Act.    In a press release, Henke points out the faulty science and poor logic behind the ruling.

California - Our Canary in a Coal Mine

It's common knowledge that California is going broke.  So broke they're asking for TARP money, a program whose beneficiaries can't get out of fast enough.  It was bad enough when they took  my money to give to banks and companies that made bad decisions - but naysayers were explained away with words about "systemic risk" and "too big to fail."  With a GDP among the top ten in the world (were it an independent country), it's hard to see how we won't see those same platitudes trotted out again.

Mark Thorton over at the Mises Institute has a very interesting article up today on the role of anti-trust regulation in Hollywood.  Be sure to check it out.  He describes how movies were produced in the "golden age" and how Federal Trade Commission forced them to change it.

No New Taxes for Louisiana

During a recession, the last thing government should do is raise taxes on the middle class and poor. But that is exactly what some Louisiana legislators are trying to do. They have crafted a 50 cent per pack tax hike on smokers that they say will raise more money for the state. But instead of raising taxes, legislators in Baton Rouge should find ways to cut wasteful government spending.Regardless of whether you smoke or not, all of us can agree that increasing taxes on the middle class and making it tougher for small businesses during a recession is bad public policy. Plus, the revenue that the government wants to collect won’t be there anyway, as recent studies have shown.Take a minute and SEND A MESSAGE to the legislature, telling them to stand on the principles of lower taxes, less government and more freedom by opposing the tobacco tax.

Help Us Defeat the National Soda Tax

During the presidential campaign of 2008, Barack Obama pledged that those making below $250,000 would not see their taxes go up one dime. He promised to cut taxes for the middle class and poor people. But if his friends in Congress get their way, President Obama will have a tough decision to make – whether to break his campaign pledge again in the form of higher taxes on soda and “sugary drinks” like sports and energy drinks.

A knife in the heart of the EPA's anti-free market agenda

A recently released memo from the Office of Management and Budget commenting on the Environmental Protection Agency’s “proposed findings” is one of the most remarkable criticisms of a government agency that I’ve ever seen from another branch of government. Read an article about the memo here, and click on a link within the article to see the memo itself. The memo is only 9 pages, and it’s a must-read for anyone who wants intellectual ammunition against the takeover of our entire economy by the left.
