The Millionaire on Food Stamps: Why Revising Categorical Eligibility is Essential to Fixing Welfare

Earlier this year, a recently retired Minnesota man by the name of Rob Undersander and his wife applied for federal benefits under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps. After a three-week waiting period, Undersander was astonished to find that he had been granted federal benefits totalling $278 per month. After donating his benefits to charity, Undersander contacted his Congressmen in order to tell them about his peculiar situation.

One Thing Congress Should Adopt From Switzerland: A Debt Brake

BY Adam Brandon

Despite the political grandstanding of the past two weeks, congressional leaders have once again overlooked the ticking time bomb of the debt ceiling. As Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin warned this month, unless Congress raises the debt ceiling before the August recess, the United States will default on its debts at the beginning of September, prior to the start of the new session.

Steve Moore in the Wall Street Journal: Counter Inequality With Private Social Security Accounts

BY Steve Moore and Jeff Yass

Democratic presidential candidates like Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker have made inequality a central issue in the campaign. But their plans for minimum-wage hikes, wealth taxes and income-tax rates of 50% to 70% would restrain the economy and hurt all Americans. At least they have ideas. Republicans seem to have few of their own to boost the wealth of working- and middle-class people, ceding the debate to the Democrats and their ill designs.

2020 Democrats Have All the Wrong Ideas for the Budget

BY Adam Brandon

It’s no secret that the two dozen or so 2020 Democratic presidential candidates are promising a slew of new and expanded government programs that are often “universal” and “free.” Americans should be skeptical when they hear these buzzwords, which are code for “rationed” and “expensive” when Democratic presidential candidates talk about "Medicare for all," the so-called Green New Deal, and free college.

The 2020 Candidates Are Ignoring Our Retirement Future

BY Clara Del Villar

The 23 Democratic presidential candidates tried to convince voters in their first debate that despite the strong economy, new lows in unemployment, and new highs in the stock market, they should worry more about economic insecurity. Because, they tell us, only a sliver of Americans are thriving in this most robust environment.

FreedomWorks Foundation Releases Entitlement Reform: A Growing National Emergency

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- FreedomWorks Foundation today releases its booklet, Entitlement Reform: A Growing National Emergency, in response to the record $22 trillion national debt, with mandatory entitlement spending and interest on the debt being the primary drivers. Congressional Democrats continue to pay no heed to the problem, as evidenced by their repeated proposals to expand entitlement programs.

FreedomWorks Entitlement Reform Series Part Three: Will America Avoid Fiscal Collapse?

BY Romina Boccia

The United States is on a fiscal collision course. Decades of unfunded entitlement promises, demographic changes, and a dysfunctional political process combine to drive the federal budget deep into debt. This poses a threat to the American economy and prosperity. According to projections by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, public debt is projected to approach 100 percent of gross domestic product in the next 10 years and will continue growing on a rapid upward trajectory from that point.

FreedomWorks Entitlement Reform Series Part Two: Cutting Discretionary Spending is Not Enough to Prevent Debt Crisis

BY Jason Pye

As the House considers the fifth discretionary spending limits bill, the Investing for the People Act, since the Budget Control Act of 2011, it is worth taking a serious look at what that debate means in the scheme of federal spending. It matters but is far from the true root of our fiscal insanity. Nondefense discretionary spending is projected to represent about 15 percent of federal spending in 2019, or about $669 billion out of the expected budget of over $4.4 trillion, according to the Congressional Budget Office. Congress could eliminate all nondefense discretionary spending and still run a large budget deficit of more than $300 billion.
