FreedomWorks Applauds Senate Rank and File Push for Rescissions

Washington, DC- Yesterday, Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) introduced the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act, S.2979, to rescind $15 billion in unobligated balances requested earlier this month by President Trump. Sen. Lee introduced the bill with eight cosponsors, including Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), to follow through on the request of the White House, which Senate leadership has refused to do.

FreedomWorks Applauds Proposed Rescissions Package

Washington, D.C.- Today, President Trump transmitted to Congress his proposal to rescind $15.4 billion in unobligated budget authorities from past years, as allowed for under the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974. This tool was used by every president, every year, from 1974 through 2000, but has not been drawn on in over 17 years.

White House Should Go Big and Bold in Rescissions Requests

Whenever Republicans run for office, they say they’re going to go to work to reduce spending and the size and scope of government. But when they arrive in Washington, to paraphrase Stephen Slivinski, many Republicans stop viewing Washington as a cesspool and treat it more like a hot tub. They get comfortable with Congress because they want to rise in the ranks of the conference, get a coveted committee like Appropriations, and work their way into committee chairmanship or a leadership position.

Support the Penny Plan Balanced Budget, S.Con.Res. 36

On behalf of FreedomWorks activists nationwide, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to support the Penny Plan Balanced Budget, S.Con.Res. 36, introduced by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). The budget would repeal the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, utilize the penny plan for bringing federal spending under control, expand health savings accounts, and implement true budget process reform. Every one of these proposals is desperately needed when our country is staring down a debt-to-GDP ratio in 2028, in which debt held by the public nearly eclipses the size of the economy. This type of spending growth is unsustainable and the Penny Plan Balanced Budget proposes a way to rightsize the fiscal outlook of our country.

How Quickly We Forget: A Look Back at Obama-Era Agency Corruption and Big Spending

Since President Obama left office, congressional Democrats have developed a curious habit of pretending to be fiscal watchdogs. Unfortunately, they are only using federal spending as an excuse to feign moral outrage and play political theater.

Support the One Percent Spending Reduction Act, H.R. 5572

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and strongly encourage him or her to cosponsor the One Percent Spending Reduction Act, H.R. 5572, introduced by Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.). The bill, also known as the “penny plan,” would balance the federal budget in five years by simply cutting one penny from every dollar the federal government spends.

Congress Doesn't Lack Tax Revenue -- Democrats and Republicans Have a Spending Problem

Opponents of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which delivered much-needed tax relief to the middle class and business owners large and small, have complained that the law is contributing to the increase in expected budget deficits over the next ten years. Certainly, budget deficits are a serious concern, and Congress has shown no interest in addressing the problem.

President Trump Fights for Welfare Reform and Self-Sufficiency

On April 10, 2018, President Donald J. Trump signed the Executive Order on Economic Mobility. President Trump’s plan outlines nine “principles of economic mobility” that are bound to lift struggling Americans towards self-sufficiency. Among these principles are boosting employment, promoting stable families, and choosing federalism over top-down programs.

FreedomWorks: A Balanced Budget Amendment is Nothing More than a “Show Vote”

Washington, D.C.- Shortly after passing a massive $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill that blew through spending caps by nearly $300 billion and set the federal government on a trajectory to trillion-dollar deficits as early as 2020, the House is voting on a balanced budget amendment.

Almost 62 Percent of Federal Spending in 2018 Is Baked in the Budgetary Cake

Fiscal conservatives rightly opposed the Bipartisan Budget Act, H.R. 1892, because it blew through the spending caps by nearly $300 billion over two years and set the tone for more long-term spending by increasing the baseline at which Congress will budget. Still, this two-year budget deal only covers discretionary spending for FY 2018 and FY 2019 and doesn't touch mandatory spending, which includes programs like Medicare and Social Security whose funding runs on autopilot.
