Special Interests or Voter Disinterest?

Bryan Caplan had a nice essay in The Wall Street Journal on Saturday (subscription required).  Caplan has been working on these ideas for some time and has just published a widely praised book on the subject.  It would seem that it is important to educate people about how markets work while simultaneously giving politicians the right information and incentives to vote for pro-market incentives.  If the politician doesn't take notice, even the best ideas will fail to make it through the process and politicians' behavior is affected by what they hear and how they think it will affect their future.  To paraphrase Ronald Reagan's observation on the Congress' of the '80s, you have to show them the light and make them feel the heat.

John Edwards' big ideas costly

It is not even the summer, and John Edwards has already proposed $1 trillion in new spending according to this AP story. At least he’s honest about where he would get the money: higher taxes. It is amazing what ideas you can come up with while sitting in your $6 million North Carolina estate, or lounging on a private jet on your way to the next $400 hair cut.

Demand Real Property Tax Reform for Pennsylvania!

Governor Rendell's tax shift plan will be on the ballot this Tuesday, May 15th. Voters will be asked to vote on the Act 1 question in nearly every school district in Pennsylvania. This question does not involve real and lasting property tax reform or relief. It only provides a tax shift and a temporary property tax reduction. Once the income tax levels are increased, very little prevents your property taxes from continuing to increase.

Matt Kibbe: Social Security bankruptcy is the real inconvenient truth

BY Matt Kibbe

Next time Al Gore accuses President Bush, or anyone for that matter, of putting off global warming for future generations, ask him what he plans to do about Social Security. Gore’s recent agitprop production, “An Inconvenient Truth,” has sounded alarms for anti-energy extremists all over the world. A rash of radical policy proposals have been put forward to address a debatable crisis. Gore has proposed several reforms, including a moratorium on all coal-fired electric plants.

FreedomWorks Grassroots Effort Helps Deliver Cable Choice in Florida

FreedomWorks’ grassroots activism paid off for consumers when the Florida House voted this week 117-2 in favor of HB 529, the Consumer Choice Act of 2007. This bill will allow consumers to benefit from increased competition and innovation in the video services arena by streamlining the currently complex and cumbersome video franchising process. To build widespread support and push this reform over the top, FreedomWorks engaged its grassroots army in an integrated campaign that put our volunteers in touch with their legislators via email, phone, and face to face lobbying.
