Hope for Europe?

BY Richard W. Rahn

Europe is in crisis. It is depopulating because of birthrates well below replacement. Weighted down by oppressive taxes and onerous regulations, the economies of the major European nations are barely growing. Pessimism reigns. Yet there are the little flickers of light in the form of bright and energetic young people pushing constructive change, and increasing public recognition from some European leaders that the present course is unsustainable.

Veto the Highway Bill

Click here to download a .pdf version. July 26, 2005 The President The White House Washington, DC 20500 Dear President Bush: Congress is nearing completion of a Highway Bill that will surely rank as one of the worst examples of pork-barrel spending of all time. If, as expected, it exceeds the spending limits you proposed, we’re counting on you to stand up for conservative economic principles by vetoing the bill.

State spending continues to grow

BY JOE FOLLICK

The Republican mantra of "less government" has won over voters, helping the party establish dominance in state politics and leaving Democrats virtually powerless. But the $63.1 billion budget awaiting the signature of Gov. Jeb Bush is not only the state's largest ever, it reverses a trend of cutting the budget for most of Bush's seven years in office. Last month, Bush said the $5 billion in additional spending this year made him "twitch." "I think (Republicans) should be careful," Bush said last week. "We should be the conservative party."

GOP Eyes Congressional Fiscal Reform

BY Steve Jordahl

This is also a national radio hit on the Dobson Focus on the Family network. A group of House Republicans is highlighting the progress in reining in the budget and asking their colleagues to continue tightening their belts. The message from members of the Waste, Fraud and Abuse Public Affairs team in the House is that government bureaucracy has woven a web of redundant and ineffective programs.

Bloated Senate Transportation Bill Breaks the Budget

Earlier this year, President Bush and Congress took a step in the right direction when they passed a budget that begins to restrain the runaway growth in spending. Unfortunately, yesterday the Senate passed a massive $295 billion transportation bill that breaks that budget agreement. The bill, H.R. 3, is more than $11 billion larger than the agreed upon allotment for transportation. FreedomWorks urges the President and Congress to reject this extra spending in conference.

Fixing the U.S. Budget Process

At what point do we admit that federal spending is out of control? The amount government spends annually per household has risen from $18,000 in 2000 to $20,500 in 2004 - an increase of 13% and the largest five-year expansion of the government since the Vietnam era. This marks only the fourth time in U.S. history that federal spending has exceeded $20,000 per household.
