FreedomWorks Launches Grassroots Campaign to ‘Make it DeMint’

FreedomWorks believes Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) is the best choice for the open seat on the Senate Finance Committee. The Senate Finance Committee is one of the Senate’s most influential, with jurisdiction over taxation, healthcare, trade, and entitlement programs. It is up to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to appoint a Republican Senator to the open seat.

FreedomWorks GOTV Efforts Critical in Outcome of Georgia Senate Race

FreedomWorks Georgia led a massive ‘Get Out the Vote’ grassroots effort in the Senate runoff race between Saxby Chambliss (R) and Jim Martin (D). With nearly all precincts reporting, Senator Chambliss was reelected by a wide margin, 58 to 42 percent. When November 4th election returns showed no candidate for Senate held an absolute majority as required by Georgia law, FreedomWorks immediately prepared its grassroots army for the runoff.

Laws Restricting Online Gaming have Unintended Consequences

The recent cheating scandal at the AbsolutePoker and UltimateBet websites has many calling for even more restrictions or an outright ban on online gaming. FreedomWorks, a grassroots organization that promotes market-based solutions to public policy problems, views the issue differently: it is a good example of the unintended consequences of government activity. In this instance, laws and regulations have driven the industry offshore, which may expose consumers to greater risks than they would face in a more open environment for online gaming.

Public Schools Next at the Bailout Trough

Since I wrote about the Metro asking for a bailout and noted that there were at least some flagging industries that still hadn't asked for a bailout, to no surprise to anyone, that has changed.  Newspapers have indeed started asking for their handout because without newspapers, according to people who have never heard of the internet, citizens would have no idea what was going on.  Michelle Malkin has been watching the ridiculousness unfold over on her blog.

No Detroit Bailout

BY Matt Kibbe

That the Big Three CEOs flew into Washington, D.C., on sleek company jets to beg for a $25 billion taxpayer bailout should not be surprising. After all, these are the same companies infamous for spending half a billion dollars a year to maintain a "jobs bank" for thousands of unneeded UAW employees to sit around and watch television or play cards. Prudent business practices have eluded Detroit of late.

Make It Flake: Reloaded

Yesterday, House Republicans rejected a motion by Minority Leader John Boehner and new Minority Whip Eric Cantor to enact a short-term earmark moratorium only through February 16.  Unwilling to give up their pork just for three short months, Republicans can hardly try to pin the Big Spenders label on Dems, like they did earlier this year.

Detroit Bailout Bad for Free Trade

Proponents of funneling another twenty-five to fifty billion of taxpayer dollars to the failing U.S. auto industry justify their support by carping about potential job losses that would follow Chapter 11 filings.  Thankfully, people like Dartmouth associate dean and professor Matthew Slaughter understand that a short-sighted bailout would be far more harmful to our economy long-term, likely resulting in even greater future job losses.  In today's Wall Street Journal, Mr.

Key Vote "No" Big 3 Bailout

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to VOTE “NO” on the Big 3 Bailout.  The bill claims it will “create jobs, prevent large tax increases and cuts in state services, strengthen our nation’s manufacturing sector, and assist those struggling to find a job.”  However, by artificially propping up an outdated business model, the bill creates further hardship down the road and prevents these companies from making the hard, but much needed reorganization required to remain competitive.

Stop New Gas Taxes in Oregon

Oregon’s Governor Kulongoski just proposed a new increase in the gas tax, along with other hikes in vehicle titling fees, and annual registration fees.  The Governor says that his tax and spend plan is “the way to get Oregon out of this economic crisis.”  It’s hard to think of a time when spending money and taxing people more helped anyone in an economic crisis.  This kind of idea hasn’t worked at the federal level, and it won’t work in Oregon.
