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?

Key Vote "No" S. 2123: the Public Safety Employer-Employee Cooperation Act of 2007

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on S. 2123: the Public Safety Employer-Employee Cooperation Act of 2007.  Rather than upholding the rights of states and municipalities to enact their own laws as the situation warrants, this legislation preempts the authority of local government by forcing them to negotiate with labor unions representing public safety officers over the terms and conditions of employment.

Backlash Grows as Congress Moves Toward Housing Rescue

As Congress moves to aid distressed US homeowners, the prospect of a new rescue is drawing fire from a diverse array of activists, economists and consumers opposing what they call a bailout. The House of Representatives on Thursday approved a bill to create a 300-billion-dollar federal guarantee for new mortgages for people who may be at risk of losing their homes. President George W. Bush threatened to veto the measure, calling it a reward for speculators and lenders.

Starvation only the latest good argument against ethanol

For various reasons, people on both sides of the political aisle, though more Democrats than Republicans, have supported America's ethanol policy...a policy which is not just silly but also dangerous. There's been a lot of press lately about food shortages in the third world caused in part by America and Europe's ethanol policy, but that's only the latest reason to oppose ethanol subsidies and mandates.

FHA Reform, Housing Stimulus Package Passes House

BY Kerri Panchuk

U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass, managed to get a controversial foreclosure prevention act passed during a House vote on Thursday. The bill, which will supply an additional $300 billion in funding to support more FHA-insured loans for struggling borrowers, has been praised for some if its initiatives and criticized for relying too heavily on taxpayer funds. President George W. Bush and other politicians took issue with the bill earlier in the week, saying it contains provisions that will help irresponsible lenders and borrowers on the backs of American taxpayers.
