Sen. Landrieu Touts The Second Louisiana Purchase

BY

If you don't think political norms about spending and earmarks have changed for the worse, take a look at today's screen shot of Senator Mary Landrieu's Senatorial web site (site and graphics also paid for by taxpayers, BTW) touting twelve billion in new spending. As one friend put it, "The Louisiana purchase only cost the United States $15 million. I am not sure what that is with inflation, but it still might be less than the $12 billion we paid for the state last week." Too true.

What's in a (Public Building's) Name?

Acting as an elected representative is often referred to as "public service." But the way some of our politicians act these days, it might as well be called "self-service." Cato's David Boaz points us to this New York Times article on the narcissistic earmark projects of some of our legislators:

Why Pay For Performance Works

In a post titled, "The Dangers of Performance Pay," Ezra Klein quotes The New Yorker's James Surowiecki on the effects of stock-options as compensation for CEOs in order to argue that pay-for-performance is a bad thing -- not just for CEOs, but for teachers as well.

Death and Death Taxes

It's infuriating that the death tax is still on the books.  No one need deal with forking over huge sums to the government after a family member passes, and, as NAM's ShopFloor blog reminds us today, it's a policy with the potential for devastating economic ripple effects.  Here's a note from a business owner that NAM blogger Carter Wood published this morning:

Key Vote "NO" on HR 3915, the "Mortgage Reform and Anti-Predatory Lending Act of 2007"

On behalf of more than 800,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I write to urge you to VOTE NO on H.R. 3915, the “Mortgage Reform and Anti-Predatory Lending Act of 2007.”  This bill imposes unnecessary regulation and exposes lenders to increased liability which will have the net effect of making loans harder to get and more expensive for American families that want to own a home.

Should Blogs Be Independent of or Integrated in Their Host Organization's Web Site?

BY Jonathan Rick

Congratulations to Citizens Against Government Waste, which recently launched a blog, Swineline. Unfortunately, Swineline suffers from the same irritant that afflicts the blogs of the Cato Institute, Americans for Tax Reform, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, and the Project on Government Oversight: It resides on a domain independent of the host organization (e.g., www.swineline.org instead of www.cagw.org/blog).

Like a PowerBar for America

What's going on with U.S. energy policy?  The New York Times asks, with the clear understanding that what should be going on is the passage of some expensive, restrictive energy bill, and John C. Felmy of API answers -- but in a way that actually makes sense:

Why Stifle Innovation?

Andrew Sullivan isn't convinced by Jon Cohn's argument that government-run health care won't have any serious effect on medical innovation. Taking issue with Cohn's idea that "The goal is to reduce our spending moderately and carefully," Sullivan writes:
