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.

Latest CBO Report Shows Washington's Addiction to Spending Is Out of Control

On Monday, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its semiannual report on federal spending. The report, The Budget and Economic Outlook: 2018 to 2028, looks at trends in federal spending, budget deficits, and the share of the national debt held by the public. If one is looking at the report through the lens of fiscal conservatism, the picture is ominous to say the least.

Medicaid Match Rates Incentivize Waste

As the mandatory piece of federal expenditures consumes an ever-increasing percentage of the overall federal budget, Medicaid spending continues to rise within this mandatory piece. Many factors have contributed to skyrocketing Medicaid expenditures by the federal government, but much of this has not been to the benefit of those that Medicaid was enacted to help.

Some Form of Line-Item Veto Is Necessary, But It Isn't a Cure for Washington's Spending Addiction

In a press conference on Friday, President Donald Trump criticized the process that Congress used to pass the Consolidated Appropriations Act, H.R. 1625, although he signed the spending bill into law. Still, he threatened to veto a future spending bill that was packed with wasteful spending and unrelated legislative priorities.

Congress Cannot Outspend the Security Threat of the National Debt

Arguments from Republicans in favor of the omnibus spending package passed by Congress last week are almost all tied together by a common theme: “our military needs this.” The $700 billion appropriated in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, H.R. 1625, for defense spending is argued to be crucial for the security of our country. This mantra resonated loudly among the 145 Republican representatives and 25 Republican senators who cast a “yea” vote for the omnibus last Thursday.

Key Vote NO on the Consolidated Appropriations Act, H.R. 1625

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to vote NO on the Consolidated Appropriations Act, H.R. 1625. The bill is the consolidated appropriations bill, which was written and subsequently pushed through the House an awful, secretive, and unfair process. On top of this, the bill spends – and wastes – taxpayer at the fiscally irresponsible levels authorized in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018.

"Politics as Usual" Is Still Alive and Well in Washington

In 2015, Congressman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) started a movement to remove then-Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R-Ohio), from his position. Of this effort, Meadows said, "It's really more about trying to have a conversation on making this place work, where everybody's voice matters, where there's not a punitive culture. Hopefully, we'll have some discussion about that in the days and weeks to come."
