Budget & Spending

The national debt and the unrestrained growth of government spending are among the greatest threats to our nation’s future. Each year, the federal government spends more and more of your dollars on corporate handouts, pork-barrel projects, welfare programs and out of control entitlements. Unless something is done, interest payments on the debt alone will consume the entire budget by the year 2050. Taxpayers can no longer afford this. We need to cut spending and balance the budget before it’s too late.

CGI - Which Brought You Healthcare.gov, Also In Charge of Nearly $2 Billion in Sandy Relief

Perhaps we have a little better understanding of why victims of Hurricane Sandy haven't seen much of the $60 billion relief package approved by Congress.

Taxpayers Lose on Shallow Loss Entitlement

This week, I decided to research the Farm Bill to write a little bit about some of the “reforms” House Republicans who support the bill are so proud of. The CBO estimates savings of $35 billion over the next ten years (vs. the current baseline). The CBO is also notorious for underestimating costs, and it looks like this time won’t be any different.

The Reality of America's Finances

When Washington raised the debt ceiling this week, the Beltway media breathlessly reported that the fiscal crisis had ended. Lawyers danced in hallways, bureaucrats twerked on the Metro, congressional aides kissed strangers in the streets — the Tea Party has been defeated! It was like VJ day for wonks.

The McConnell Mechanism: Congress Makes Obama a King for Three Months

Congress made President Obama a temporary king the other day. And the crown was placed upon his head by none other than the Senate's top Republican, Mitch McConnell. No joke. On October 16th, Congress passed, and the following day the president signed into law, a bill (H.R.2775) to temporarily suspend the U.S. Government's statutory debt limit and also temporarily shift Congress's borrowing power to the president.
