On Second Thought, Maybe the U.S. Should Be More Like Europe

The Wall Street Journal reports this morning that the European Union and the United States have again chosen different paths regarding free trade, this time with South Korea. However, for once it’s old Europe that wants to boost economic output by lowering barriers. Meanwhile, in the formerly free market U.S., a Congress beholden to Big Labor throws up roadblocks.

Like Eugenics? You’ll Just Love Socialized Medicine

Under normal circumstances, documented support for radical and discredited population control methods would probably disqualify someone from holding a position of scientific authority like, for instance, “science czar.” Not so in Barack Obama’s administration.

Sanford’s Down, Sarah’s Out, Franken's In; Is the Tea Party Over?

It’s been a strange and troubling few weeks for advocates of lower taxes and limited government. Nancy Pelosi successfully rammed what may be the largest tax hike in American history through the House of Representatives. Two rapidly rising stars in the GOP have unexpectedly tumbled back to Earth. And a federally-funded special interest power grab looms over the health care system.

Dissent, Not Denial: Informed Opposition to the Science of Climate Change Is Growing

Beneath the surface of a Cap and Tax debate that has only just begun to rage in this country, a basic premise is largely being taken for granted. Prominent fixtures of the political class, from Al Gore to Newt Gingrich to John McCain, have accepted and declared as fact that the Earth is getting warmer, the icecaps are getting smaller, carbon is to blame, and only government can save the day.

Reconciliation, What Is It?

If you've been paying attention to what's going on in Washington recently, you've probably heard the word "reconciliation".  What is it?  It's a legislative process intended to allow a budget bill to be considered without filibuster.  In the Senate, it restricts debate to 20 hours and amendments are limited.  Without the option of filibuster, a bill in the Senate would only require 51 votes to pass.  A super majority of 60 votes is required to end a filibuster to move legislation normally.

Washington, D.C.—Today, FreedomWorks announced its opposition to a new draft of a climate plan being championed by House Energy and Commerce Chairman Henry Waxman (D, CA-30) and Energy and Environment Subcommittee Chairman Edward Markey (D, MA-7) that would explode the size of government and stick American taxpayers with the bill; estimated at hundreds of billions of dollars.
