The Road to Transportation Federalism

The Highway Trust Fund may dry up by September 30th. This raises a question that should have been debated long ago: what role does the federal government have in transportation? Senator Mike Lee and Representative Tom Graves have wisely suggested that the solution is to phase out federal control over transportation.

First the IRS... Now the EPA?

Though government employees can find our emails, they can't find their own.

The Department of Transportation Wants Drivers to Get Lost

Technology is continually frustrating government regulators. The advance of innovation is so rapid, that slow-moving bureaucracies have had to struggle just to keep up. Of course this hasn’t stopped them from trying. After all, what is the alternative? Letting people enjoy the benefits of new goods and services without interfering or meddling in any way? Obviously, they can’t have that.

The Left’s Assault on Food Freedom

The prohibitionists are at it again. With Michael Bloomberg no longer around to impose his values on hapless New Yorkers, I suppose it was inevitable that someone would take up his mantle as Nutritionist-in-Chief. Granted, Michelle Obama has tried her darnedest, waging a relentless war on fat people ever since her husband took office. But when it comes right down to it, First Ladies aren’t allowed to make laws. That power is vested in Congress, so it will ultimately take a congressman—or woman—to ruin fun and flavor for the nation at large.

The Death Knell of Tenure

One of the greatest barriers to education reform, and the symbol of public sector intransigence, is teacher tenure. These statutes make it nearly impossible and incredibly expensive to fire poorly performing teachers. But in a landmark victory for education reform, a California judge ruled that teacher tenure and a slew of other job protection clauses are unconstitutional and should not be enforced by school districts.

The IRS Thinks We’re All Idiots

The government seems to have a data problem. While the NSA has apparently been storing massive amounts of data on innocent Americans deep within its sinister archives, the IRS and the US Census Bureau just can’t seem to keep track of anything. What a difference an acronym makes.

The FDA Is Trying to Ruin the Mobile App Market

In most basic economics textbooks, which, for all their faults, mostly recognize the virtue of free markets, the only rationale given for government intervention in the economy is a so-called “market failure,” a situation where no efficient outcome can be reached purely through voluntary exchange.
