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.


The IRS Backs Down

The IRS will now delay new regulations that would have stifled your free speech rights.

Keep the Digital Wild West Wild

UPDATE 6-5-2014: In their continuing efforts to ruin all that is good and decent in the world, the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles has sent cease and desist letters to two car service companies, Uber and Lyft, operated through mobile apps. While these services provide safe, efficient, and affordable options for people to get from point A to point B, the DMV apparently thinks it is more important to protect the oligopolies of cab companies, not to mention their own revenues, than to allow consumers to buy services they overwhelmingly enjoy.

"Will Lois 'Lerner' Lesson?"
"Now that the House has voted to hold Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, will we finally get answers about the IRS targeting scandal?"

Will the Contempt Vote Make Lois ‘Lerner’ Lesson?

Yesterday’s vote to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress represents another step forward in the ongoing quest to hold the agency accountable for the discrimination it practiced against conservative non-profit groups in the 2012 presidential election.

Key Vote NO on the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act, S. 2262

As one of our over 6 million FreedomWorks activists nationwide, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to vote NO on the “Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act”, S. 2262. Introduced by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), this bill, while being sold as an energy efficiency overhaul for the country, is merely a conglomeration of government meddling and waste.

"Texas Reigns as the Business Empire State"
"Actions define Texas as the clear cut leader in economic policies, making them the true Empire State of business."

Texas Reigns as the Business Empire State

Last week, Texas Governor Rick Perry challenged New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to a friendly debate over economic policies. Perry issued the challenge during a trip to the Empire state in which he was to meet business owners, trying to convince them to move their operations to Texas. Cuomo, when given a chance to defend against Perry's statements that business men and women in New York are "taxed too much" and that "the regulatory climate is too onerous," declined. Cuomo simply stated, "I don't think so."


Sixteen-year-old me was not worth $10.10 an hour

Still a student whose resume was a blank sheet of paper, I walked into work on my first day as an assistant leader at a children’s summer camp with no experience. I had no skills concerning supervising children or dealing with staff, and the first weeks were filled with my training by senior staff rather than me contributing to the program. I was hired as an investment in the hopes that at the end of training, I would be able to provide enough services that the camp would make a profit. With that investment, there was the risk that I would not be worth the minimum wage (which back then was around $7.25 an hour) I was being paid. Think about it – that is a high wage to pay a teenager who needs to be taught everything, starting with the fundamentals of showing up to work on time, especially when you are paying them to allow you to train them. If this is the case, should you be allowed to pay them less, at least until they can prove they can do their job? The government says no, through minimum wage legislation.

Key Vote NO on the Senate's Minimum Wage Hike

As one of our over 6 million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your senators and ask that they vote NO on any increase in the federal minimum wage. Sponsored by Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), the latest Senate bill, S. 2223, would raise the minimum wage nationwide from $7.25 per hour to $10.10 per hour. Furthermore, it would provide for permanent automatic wage increases, indexed to inflation.
