Four Reasons to Oppose the Sub-Prime Mortgage Bail Out

< p class="MsoNormal">Congress seems to be in a rush to bail out speculators in America’s mortgage and real estate markets.  The House has already passed a sweeping new regulatory bill and Senator Hillary Clinton is proposing a $5 billion taxpayer fund to pay individual mortgages.  These proposals come despite the fact that there is little or no economic case for government intervention, and polling shows that a majority of homeowners do not support a bail out.  Further, many of the ideas Congress is currently considering will make the problem worse by reducing available cr

Talk, Talk, Talk: The Fairness Doctrine

Talk may be cheap, but it doesn’t deserve to be hit with cheap shots.  Yet that’s exactly what some liberals want to do in response to the overwhelming success of conservative talk radio.  Led by the left-wing think tank, Center for American Progress, there’s a growing movement to reinstate the misleadingly named Fairness Doctrine, a rule that would give the government almost unlimited power over what broadcasters, especially those with conservative views, are allowed to say on air.

Key Vote 'NO' on the National Affordable Housing Trust Fund Act

On behalf of nearly 850,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I write to urge you to VOTE NO on H.R. 2895, the National Affordable Housing Trust Fund Act. This legislation would add layers of bureaucracy to a situation already bogged down in government regulations and mismanagement.

Capital Flight

Be afraid when a Democrat-dominated, "influential House committee is set to hear testimony from all five commissioners of the Securities and Exchange Commission today—the first time that has happened in at least 10 years." Yes, the SEC is making a House call, as the Wall Street Journal put it. What new havoc will the SEC wrecking ball wreak? That's too early to tell. So far, according to FreedomWorks, the Republican Party's Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 has had the following effects on American capital markets:

Heat On Sarbox May Grow As Euro Markets Pass U.S.

BY RICHARD WILNER

Attempts to overturn portions of Sarbanes-Oxley may pick up steam this week after an April 4 report showed the value of European stock markets has overtaken U.S. markets for the first time since World War I. The seismic shift in the value of equity markets is a further blow to the New York Stock Exchange and other U.S. markets, which have seen some of the larger initial public offerings opt for overseas markets instead of their traditional NYSE home.

Anguish on Wall Street as European stock markets push US off pole position

BY Stephen Foley

There is another new taunt in the "yah boo sucks" slanging match between the City of London and Wall Street. The value of European stock markets has eclipsed that of the US. The moment slipped past unnoticed last Thursday, but make no mistake, it was a historic occasion. Totting up the value of all the companies on the 24 stock markets of Europe, from west to east and taking in Russia and Turkey, you get $15.73 trillion. That's a nudge ahead of the total of US-listed companies, and you probably can't have said that since the end of the First World War.
