The Bailout Backlash

CNN Money has a story on the backlash against the bailout which mentions FreedomWorks' AngryRenter website and includes an interview with my colleague Adam Brandon.  A key point to make here is that bailing out homeowners through loan readjustments or no-foreclosure periods sounds like a softening measure, but the real result is to make the market's downturn even worse. Instead of quickly going through the painful process, it extends it, protracting the downturn rather than making it easier.

Higher and Higher

Shorter Ruth Marcus: What America really needs is higher taxes. In fact, it would be totally awesome campaign strategy for a Republican to just say, "Yeah, higher taxes! We need 'em!" Because clearly, GOP voters eat that sort of thing up.

Oil Supply

Whether or not the U.S. should seek the long-term goal of becoming "energy independent" is an open question. But what's germane to our current political situation is whether or not we can.  And right now, the answer is: We can't. At World Politics Review, Peter Kiernan explains. You should read the whole thing, but here are a couple of sharp passages.

McCain and the Free Market

Dean Baker is technically correct to say that John McCain "doesn't support free-market health care," but mostly in the sense that absolutely everyone who supports, even grudgingly, leaving some of the current government health-care funding and regulatory infrastructure in place doesn't support free-market health care.

Support Education Freedom for Oklahoma!

The fight for freedom in education continues today in Oklahoma.  SB 2100, the School District Deregulation Pilot Program, is in danger in the House of Representatives.  This bill, authored by Senators Ford and Jolley, and Representatives Jones and Kern, is now in the Oklahoma House.  Rep. Jones’ office has indicated that those that oppose local control of school districts have made their voices heard at the Capitol.  We must counter their efforts with a message of education freedom!

It Ain't Easy Being Green

It's no surprise that many free-market advocates were worried by President Bush's speech on climate change last week (see here, for starters) -- I know I wasn't thrilled with it. But maybe he was hoping to bring some liberals (or, more likely, moderates) over to his side? Well, looks like his speech, which announced a goal of leveling off greenhouse gas emissions by 2025 didn't have much success.

Live From The 7th Congressional Convention

BY Martin Andrade

Already I have failed at my primary task for the Convention, which was to get Glen Menze to sign the FreedomWorks Earmarks pledge. Oh, I confronted Mr. Menze and he agreed to sign the pledge but... I didn't have a pen. I had a pen with me to start the day.
