Wrong Side McCain

BY Peter Suderman

During his 1999 bid for the Republican presidential nomination, the New York Times reported that John McCain told a group of college students that there was still a lot he didn't know about global warming. "I don't claim to be an expert on the issue," he said. That's a brave and surprisingly humble admission from anyone running for national office. But he didn't let that lack of knowledge stop him from spending the next eight years pushing bad policy on the issue.

Where Do Ag Subsidies Go?

A lot of places, sure, but one of them is Manhattan. Here's a map, courtesy of Matt Yglesias: You know, last I checked, there weren't a lot of farms on the Upper East Side.

Always Look on the Bright Side...

George Will's got a great column on the mortgage market and the deeply flawed legislation being presented to address it. One point he makes I think has been conspicuously absent from the debate is that there are actually upsides to lower housing prices:

Opposition Builds to $300 Billion Government Mortgage Bail Out

The more Americans learn about the $300 billion taxpayer bailout of reckless lenders and borrowers, the more the opposition and outrage grows. The Frank plan that passed the House of Representatives last week lets banks cherry-pick the worst loans with the least-qualified borrowers, and shift those loans 100 percent to the taxpayers. It’s not fair to force responsible Americans to foot the bill for the least worthy borrowers and their lenders.

47,000 Sign Petition Against Frank's Housing Bill

BY Kerri Panchuk

The controversy over U.S. Rep. Barney Frank's, D-Mass., housing bill continues to draw intense criticism from free market supporters, like FreedomWorks—a nonprofit that promotes responsible fiscal policy—and an organization that believes Frank's bill is nothing more than a bailout funded by taxpayers. Frank's proposed bill, in particular, is facing scrutiny from FreedomWorks because it allows the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) to insure an additional $300 billion mortgage loans to help distressed borrowers who are stuck in risky mortgages.

The Perils of Spending

It's easy to talk in the abstract about government waste, about excessive spending, about Washington bloat. It's bad! And most everyone, right and left, agrees that it's bad (appropriators, of course, are the exception). But with all the talk about how bad it is, we often forget to look at why, exactly, and what happens when spending goes compkletely out of control. As Cato's Elizabeth Karasmeighan explains, that's exactly what's happened in California – and now Governor Schwarzenegger is facing the consequences: constituencies angry they're being cut off from the public dole, backwards spending rules that make cutting spending extremely difficult, and a general fiscal crisis – what to do when there just isn't enough money?
