McCain Takes on Earmarks (Again)

John McCain has sometimes had mixed relations with economic conservatives, but one area in which he's been quite strong is spending -- especially when it comes to earmarks. He made strong remarks on earmarks in his speech at CPAC ("I will not sign a bill with earmarks in it, any earmarks in it").

BY

The bad news for the GOP this weekend was the loss of former Speaker Denny Hastert's Congressional District in a special election. That's despite heavy earmarking by the former Speaker.

Hugh Webster signs FreedomWorks' "No Earmark" Pledge

Former State Senator Hugh Webster, the Republican candidate for North Carolina's 13th Congressional District was proud to sign FreedomWorks' pledge against earmarks on Thursday, March 6. "'Earmarking,' the practice by which members of Congress divert taxpayer funding to special projects outside of the normal competitive and merit-based review process, has grown out of control and is open to waste and abuse," the pledge states.

TFB's Stumbles: Week Ending March 7, 2008

Here are some of the interesting articles I came across this week. Gore Invests $35 Million for Hedge Funds With EBay Billionaire (Bloomberg) - Entrepreneur Al Gore increased his networth by at least 30 fold in 8 years (from $3 million to over $100 million). What about you? Carlyle Fund Misses Margin Calls (New York Times) - A $21 billion hedge fund with 99 percent of AAA-rated US agency mortgage securities could not meet $37 million margin calls. That's what happens when you invest with borrowed money.

FreedomWorks Opposes New Tax Mechanism in H.R. 1108

Currently the House is marking up H.R. 1108, the "Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act," in the Health Subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. As with the Senate version of the bill, the House bill includes language that allows the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to impose new "user fees" to cover the costs of its expanded regulatory program. However, language added in a manager’s amendment expands the amount of fees that may be collected by the FDA to offset a projected loss of excise tax revenue resulting from the program. At this point, the user fee would no longer be a "fee for service' that covers the agency’s costs—it would be a new tax.

The trouble with Kevin Mannix. (Hint: $$$)

BY Kari Chisholm

So, Kevin Mannix announced today that he's running for Congress. This is going to be fun. For all the national media and activists coming to BlueOregon today to learn more about Kevin, here's a recap: He's a former Democrat who became a Republican when his brand of right-wing politics was no longer welcome in our party. He's a four-time statewide loser (twice AG, twice Governor) who seems addicted to building prisons through ballot measures. But Kevin's always had trouble with money. And it's liable to only get worse running for Congress.
