New York Has a Spending, Not Revenue, Problem

< p>For nearly a decade, New York state has enjoyed record tax receipts courtesy of the bull run on Wall Street.  During good economic times, when treasury coffers are full, it is easy to be a legislator with plenty of taxpayer cash available to fund pet projects and reward political allies.    < p class="MsoNormal">Unfortunately for taxpayers, the breakdown in budget discipline during good times creates a cycle of government expansion and higher taxes.  Every revenue increase is met with more spending, but when things slow down, state taxpayers are on the hook to cover h

The Many Unintended Consequences of Biofuel Subsidies

Over at Reason, I make the argument that biofuel subsidies are making beer -- yes, that all important, all-American brew of choice -- more expensive. But that's not all their doing. As this NYT editorial today points out, they're also making food, which, no matter how much you love beer, is a wee bit more important, more expensive in third-world countries.

Key Vote “YES” on Sen. DeMint’s Amendment to Senate Housing Bill

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to VOTE “YES” on Senator Jim DeMint’s amendment (#4474) to the Senate Housing Bill. This amendment would strike language in the bill that is misguided and could lead to serious problems.

How to Get the Goverment to Buy You an iPod

So it looks like the government can't even manage something as basic as employee purchases using government-issued credit cards. You've got federal employees running up tabs for iPods, luxury dinners, and dating services, and $2 million worth of purchased stuff unaccounted for. In the grand scheme of our $3 trillion federal budget, that's not a lot of money.

U.S. Gets Points For Telecom Policy

Turns out all the criticism of U.S. broadband policy (Obama mentioned in in a recent speech) may not be warranted.  According to the New York Times, "European researchers say that the Internet infrastructure of the United States is one of the world’s best and getting better." How does the U.S. stay ahead despite somewhat lower average connection speeds?

Would a UBS Split Expose U.S. Taxpayers to Losses?

Switzerland's largest bank, UBS, is also a primary dealer with access to the Federal Reserve's emergency lending window. We don't know if UBS is actually using the Fed's credit line, because that is kept secret.

Will Democrat candidates talk about retirement crisis?

As the Democrat candidates for president spend more time in Pennsylvania these next couple of weeks, it will be interesting to see what they spend their time talking about. So far, the campaign has focused quite a bit on identity politics, character, change and experience. Much of the bickering has had nothing to do with real policy questions like taxes, spending or energy.
