Key Vote Alert: Support Coburn Amendment to Kill “Bridge to Nowhere”

FreedomWorks sent this letter to the U.S. Senate this afternoon. Dear Senator, On behalf of more than 700,000 FreedomWorks members nation-wide, I write to urge the U.S. Senate to VOTE YES on Senator Tom Coburn’s (R-OK) second degree amendment to S. Amend 2085. This amendment would redirect hundreds of millions of dollars from the transportation bill for bridge building projects in Alaska to rebuilding efforts in Katrina-ravaged areas in the Gulf region.

Party of Thirteen Fights Against Wasteful Spending

Today, a series of amendments offered by taxpayer hero Senator Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) separated the true fiscal conservatives in the U.S. Senate from those who merely “talk the talk” but vote the other way. With the chance to rein in excessive spending, only thirteen senators mustered the courage to actually vote against egregious spending and pork earmarks. Coburn’s amendments attempted to prohibit funding for low-priority pet projects such as:

Rewards of economic freedom

BY Richard W. Rahn

If you had to list 10 freedoms that are important to you from your most to your least important, how would you rank them? You might ask your family and friends the same question, and I expect you will find the lists and priorities quite different.

Greenspan's Boots

BY Cesar V. Conda

An individual who is destined to influence the livelihood of Americans -- and for a long period of time -- will soon face confirmation before the U.S. Senate. I am not referring to the next Supreme Court justice but to the next chairman of Federal Reserve Board of Governors. The Fed chairman is more than the chief U.S. central banker. He is a major voice on economic public policy matters; a "comforter-in-chief" to global financial markets; and, because of globalization, effectively the key central banker to the world.

Vermont Should Lead and Give Pork to Katrina Relief

An open letter to Congressman Bernie Sanders, Senator Jim Jeffords, and Senator Patrick Leahy, In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and then Rita, Vermont citizens led the way. Vermonters were among the first, if not the first, to deliver truckloads of supplies to the victims of the disaster. Bottled water, diapers, shampoo, food… individuals purchased provisions little by little, but our combined efforts resulted in a vast supply. Vermonters opened their hearts and their wallets to help those truly in need.
