EPA's Utility MACT: Myths and Facts

Using the Congressional Review Act (CRA), the U.S. Senate has an up-coming vote in early June to overturn the EPA’s costly Utility MACT Rule.  The Obama administration’s EPA along with other environmental NGOs have been publishing false and misleading propaganda to generate support for the Utility MACT rule, the most expensive rule ever issued by the EPA.

Why Is Business Cheering for New Regulations?

While the Obama administration has played up its independence and indifference to big business, recent announcements with respect to energy policy suggest that the administration does, in fact, cozy up to business, working in hand and glove to craft potential new regulations on energy exploration and development

Too Big Not To Fail

Some pundits are saying that the big banks like JP Morgan and Bank of America are too big and need to be broken up, in sort of a preemptive antitrust enforcement. But it would be far better if we just let the free market work, as we should have been doing all along.

Republican Nomination in IL-13

Illinois Republican Party officials will vote May 19 replace the retiring Congressman Tim Johnson on the November ballot in Illinois' 13th District. Four candidates competing for the nomination gathered at a forum Saturday.  Party Chairmen in the district will have to choose between two candidates who focus on what the country needs and two others who focus on winning, no matter what they have to say.The field (in order left to right in accompanying photo):Kathy Wassink - 9/12 activist and businesswoman. Erika Harold - Chicago lawyer and former Miss AmericaRodney Davis - Congressional staffer and state party insider. Jerry Clarke - Congressional aide, Army Reserve Officer, and unsuccessful campaign managerGrassroots activists would support enthusiastically either Wassink or Harold. Wassink is more outspoken and sure of her positions on issues, while Harold is more eloquent and prepared. Neither Davis nor Clarke would attract grassroots support outside their immediate circles.Clarke, coming out for Project Labor Agreements for government contracts, has no business being in any legislature.

The Myth of the Gender Wage Gap

President Obama has often criticized the so-called gender wage gap. This is a bit hypocritical since a new study finds that the Obama White House pays women less than men on average. According to the 2011 annual report to Congress on White House staff, the median wage for males was $71,000 while the median wage for females was $60,000—18 percent less.

FreedomWorks Stands with Senator Inhofe Against the EPA

The Environmental Protection Agency, a favorite tool of Obama’s job crushing agenda, continuously promulgates unilateral rules and regulations that ultimately threaten entire industries in the United States and push consumer prices constantly higher. Most notably, the EPA’s recent regulatory onslaught is targeting energy by way of new restrictions on fossil fuels, which will increase prices, reduce the reliability of the nation’s electricity grid, and destroy jobs.

Florida's Personal Injury Protection Law: How a Government Mandate is Bankrupting the Sunshine State

No-fault/Personal Injury Protection (PIP) laws are a prime example of the danger posed by the substitution of free market mechanisms for government mandates. In states with PIP laws on the books, the costs of insurance premiums are skyrocketing and rampant fraud and abuse of the system is to blame. PIP laws were put in place to protect the consumer but in states like Florida, consumers are faced with ever increased premiums to account for the impact of fraud on the system.
