Congressman Broun stated he would take a look at Congressman Flake's bill, the SMART Act, since he actually ran on fixing Social Security. Rep. Broun also mentioned one of his goals was to overturn the Supreme Court's Kelo decision, which undermined property rights in America, and that he was heading up the Property Rights Caucus in Congress.

Follow the Money

Heritage's Brian Reidl has a new report out on federal spending, and, for anyone concerned about responsible spending, the news is not good. In large part, the report cements what we already knew: President Bush's legacy on spending will be one of waste and excess. This year, for every household in the U.S., Washington will spend a little more than $25,000. That's up from about $20,000 in 2001, when Bush took office.

Big Fines -- Not Fine!

So Microsoft got hit with the most ridiculous -- by which I mean the biggest -- fine in European Commission history.  At this point, the EU's crusade against the company just seems obnoxious.  It's probably (okay, certainly) too much to ask the EU to come out against anti-trust entirely, but the continuing, escalating fines they're imposing are just starting to seem boorish.  What do they have left to prove at this point?  Microsoft's a large corporation that's succeeded spectacularly well in the software marketplace, and it seems EU regulators for some reason feel the need to punish them for doing so.

Environmentalism as Consumption

Last week, at Andrew Sullivan's, I wrote a longish post on environmentalism and the politics of meaning. Over at the Spiked Review of Books, Frank Furedi has a smart piece on the rise of green capitalism that works as a great follow up.

Make it Flake: How Freedomworks Won

BY Meghann Parlett

Rep. Jeff Flake wasn't appointed to the Appropriations Committee, but Freedomworks came out on top in the organization's bid to appoint him. Brendan Steinhauser and Rob Jordan spoke this morning during a candidate training session about how Freedomworks was able to maximize results and identify support using online petitions during the campaign. Brendan's Bottom Line: Online petitions, when combined with offline activism, have the potential to identify supporters, motivate leaders and spread a conservative message virally.

Protect the Option of Payday Advance in Virginia

Ever been in a tight financial squeeze? Couldn't pay a bill, or needed something—gas, groceries, medicine—that you just couldn't afford?  It's a common enough experience; the last U.S. Census reported that over the course of a year, 9.9 percent of the population was unable to pay a utility bill on at least one occasion.  Most people, when faced with this predicament, opt to use a credit card or borrow money from a family member.

New Study Shows Uneven and Unfair Distribution of Mortgage Bailout Costs and Benefits

FreedomWorks Foundation today released a new study on the costs and benefits of different policy proposals targeting the so-called "subprime mortgage crisis." The study was conducted by Todd Sinai, The Wharton School Associate Professor of Real Estate at the University of Pennsylvania. He found that while these relief programs may help some borrowers, they do not distribute the costs and benefits equitably. The proposals under consideration in Congress inappropriately reward people who made riskier decisions over those who made prudent decisions, exclude people who live in states that experienced an early economic downturn, benefit those with high incomes at the expense of others, and spread the costs of the program among all taxpayers or future borrowers.
