The End of "Monuments to Me"

Charlie Rangel (NY) for the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service at the City College of New York. Rep.

While Speaker Pelosi Takes Vacation, House Conservatives Attack High Energy Prices

After months of struggling at the gas pump, the voices of frustrated Americans are finally being heard. Since Friday, conservative legislators in the US House remained on the floor to protest Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s adjournment for a five week vacation without first voting on a bill that would increase domestic energy supply and lower gas prices. Led by Rep. John Shadegg (R-AZ), Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), and Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN), a total of 48 lawmakers took turns speaking after Speaker Nancy Pelosi closed the Congress.

Key Vote "No" H.R. 6604: the Commodity Markets Transparency and Accountability Act

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on H.R. 6604: the Commodity Markets Transparency and Accountability Act.  The bill states that its purpose is “to amend the Commodity Exchange Act to bring greater transparency and accountability to commodity markets” but the consequences of the legislation are greater intervention in markets and an expansion of government into the reach of private contracts.

Data-Tracking Provision Retained in Housing Bill

BY Linda Rosencrance

Congress last week passed a bill to tackle the housing crisis that also includes a controversial provision requiring e-commerce and credit card companies to report merchant transactions to the IRS, raising privacy and financial issues for small businesses. President George W. Bush has indicated that he will sign the legislation, which is intended to help homeowners facing foreclosure, but it was not clear when the president would add his signature. The White House press office did not return a call for comment.

“Use It or Lose It” Is Not the Way Energy Markets Work

It has been widely reported that the United States faces an energy crisis of epic proportions. This perceived crisis has left Americans facing significant pain at the pump, as the price of gasoline continues to rise and oil prices repeatedly stretch to record highs. In response, politicians from both sides of the aisle have scrambled to offer solutions in an attempt to soothe public anger over the costly impact of higher gas prices.  While Republicans have argued for drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS), Congressional Democrats responded with a counterclaim: oil companies need to use what they already have.
