The Internet Should Remain Free of Taxation

On September 30th, Congress approved a measure that would fund the government for the next 10 weeks, until December 11th, while a budget is negotiated for the new fiscal year. The measure contains a reauthorization of the internet taxation ban, which is good news; that is, until the issue is brought up again in December and the government will face another funding battle.

Jobs Report Reveals More Americans Out of Work

The jobs report, released the first Friday of every month by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, is one of the most closely watched indicators of how the economy is doing. The report collects a wide variety of statistics on employment and labor utilization, in an attempt to paint an overall picture of the American labor market. Over the few months, the Obama administration has been pleased with the numbers, with the official unemployment rate ticking down consistently, albeit at a glacial pace.

A Victory in the Face of Preposterous Copyright Laws

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge George H. King issued a ruling that should make celebrating your birthday a little bit happier. For the better part of a century, the song “Happy Birthday to You” had been locked up under copyright claim, and those who wanted to officially use the song had to pay royalties to the company that owned its rights. These royalty payments were often collected from stage productions, television shows, movies, and even greeting cards, whenever they decided to use the celebratory song. However, after a long 80 years, King has rendered the copyright invalid, since the original only granted rights to the explicit piano arrangements and not the song itself.

Schools Discover They Can't Force Feed Children

It’s bad enough that the government dictates to local school districts what children should learn, when they should learn it, and how they should be tested. It’s bad enough that Common Core robs parents and teachers of individual choice and treats children as interchangeable cogs in the Big Education machine. But to add insult to injury, the government, under the ever-watchful eyes of Michelle Obama, has taken it upon itself to control the diets of American schoolchildren everywhere.

Blame Government for High Drug Prices

Hillary Clinton is using a story about a hedge fund manager charging outrageously marked up prices for an AIDS drug as a springboard for her plans impose a new set of mandates on insurance and pharmaceutical companies. The story is upsetting, no doubt, but as usual, progressives miss the root of the problem, and try to treat symptoms rather than curing the disease.

The Cost of Regulation

Volkswagen is in hot water with the EPA, after revelations that 11 million of its vehicles employ covert software designed to trick emissions testers. While being tested, the cars switched to a more efficient mode in order to beat the regulations, afterwards switching back to a higher performance (and hence higher emissions) method of operation.

Presidential Candidates Should Tell the Truth about the Minimum Wage

In this week’s Republican Presidential debate on CNN, a couple of the candidates took a brief time-out from slinging personal attacks and responding to trivia to address some actual issues affecting our economy. One of these issues is the oft-demagogued minimum wage.

Antitrust: a Wretched Hive of Government Hypocrisy

Antitrust law is something the government takes pretty seriously. In short, these are laws designed to protect consumers from companies that would abuse their market power to the detriment of the customer.

Right to Work 2.0 Highlights Badly Needed Reforms

The phrase “Right to Work” has traditionally been used to describe a system of voluntary union membership, as contrasted with the mandatory membership practice that are still common in many states. Now, the term is getting an update as people realize that unions are only one way of keeping hard working Americans out of a job. In fact, the government has all manner of schemes to protect their favored interests, while shutting out many of the people who need work the most.
