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.

Currituck joins Camden in fight against OLF

BY Jeff Hampton

Currituck County will aid Camden County in contesting a proposed Navy airfield that would send jets over Moyock, Currituck's most populated community and an area officials see as an emerging industrial hub. Last month, Camden County hired Raleigh law firm Poyner & Spruill, which has assigned to the case five attorneys with expertise in military affairs, government administration and environmental law, said John Morrison, attorney for Camden. "We want a place at the table now while the study is going on," Morrison said.

FreedomWorks Meets with Congressman Paul Broun

TOCCA, GEORGIA.  On February 20th, FreedomWorks Volunteer leader Delores Gresham met with Congressman Paul Broun on Social Security Reform. Rep. Broun is one of the new leaders in Congress in the fight for limited government. Congressman Broun stated he would take a look at Congressman Flake's bill, the SMART Act, since he actually ran on fixing Social Security. Rep. Broun also mentioned one of his goals was to overturn the Supreme Court's Kelo decision, which undermined property rights in America, and that he was heading up the Property Rights Caucus in Congress.
