Republicans Should Promote Justice Reform in State of the Union Response

On Tuesday, President Barack Obama will deliver his last State of the Union address to Congress. The address will no doubt have a heavy focus on foreign policy, terrorism, and controversial gun control actions. Another topic expected to receive some attention, with legislation on the move in the Senate, is criminal justice reform.

A Crucial Victory on the Road to Repealing ObamaCare

The House is set to send the president a bill repealing the majority of his signature health care law. While the president will certainly veto the bill, doing so merely underscores its implied promise: elect the right president in 2016, and ObamaCare's days are numbered.

John McCain Cares About Conservative Policies (When He’s Running for Re-Election)

As we ring in a new year, we see members of Congress reinvent themselves quicker than Americans sign up for gym memberships. In Washington, in an election year, Republicans tend to adopt a conservative façade, only to wait until after November to show their true colors. Senator John McCain, for instance, demonstrated this behavior after his failed bid for the White House, following a dismal 69 percent rating on the FreedomWorks Congressional Scorecard in 2009 with an apparently conservative 96 percent the following year. After securing re-election, his rating dropped to as low as 48 percent.

John McCain and the Hatch Effect

Question: When can you count on a moderate, establishment Republican to suddenly see the light and start voting like a conservative? Answer: When their job is on the line. This sort of last minute conversion to the cause of liberty 12 months before an election is known as the Hatch Effect, after Senator Orrin Hatch who exhibits this tendency with particular blatancy.

Government Control of Education Is Starting to Backfire

Who should be responsible for your child’s education: you, or the government? It’s a debate that has been raging for centuries, but it is only recently that government control of education has become so intrusive as to inspire real backlash. The alternative education movement in America has been around for decades, but these days it seems to really be picking up steam, and it is not a stretch to attribute at least some of its rise in popularity to the ever-lengthening arm of the government education bureaucracy.

FreedomWorks Foundation Pledges to Mobilize Against Harmful Regulations

A story in Politico on Monday highlighted the Obama administration’s “mad dash” to ram through thousands of rules and regulations before the end of the president’s term. Since President Obama took office, rule-making agencies have added more than 545,000 pages of regulations to the Federal Register. In 2015 alone, unelected bureaucrats issued or proposed more than 80,000 pages of rules and regulations. These new and proposed rules come with a price tag of $191 billion, the costs of which will be borne by businesses and consumers.

Americans Understand ObamaCare Is a Bad Deal

“If your policy is so good, why does it have to be mandatory?” This is the eminently sensible question posed by people who question the need for government to dictate our purchases. Although often asked, it seldom receives an answer. When it does, it usually amounts to some slightly more diplomatic variation on “people are too stupid to make their own decisions.” Oh, what benevolent masters we have. ObamaCare is only the most recent example in a long line of mandatory programs that are supposedly “for our own good,” but it’s a big one and provides a good example of the futility of trying to force people to act against their own best interests.

FreedomWorks' Congressman of the Month - Jim Jordan

The past year was an important one for defenders of liberty. To be sure, there were some defeats as the tide of big government rolls ever onward, but there were some important victories and milestones as well. 2015 saw the closure of the Export-Import Bank for the first time in 80 years, a lifting of the ban on crude oil exports, new limitations on the government’s ability to spy on American citizens, and some important reforms to the justice system across the nation.

The Obama Recovery That Wasn't

The stock market closed down for 2015 reversing one of the few positive accomplishments under the Barack Obama presidency. This has been a pretty prosperous time for the top two percent. For most Americans though — not so much.
