Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins: A Possible Alternative Path to Standing

Normally to sue in federal court, a plaintiff must establish standing. There are three requirements for establishing standing: (1) an injury in fact, (2) a causal relationship between the injury and the defendant’s conduct, and (3) the injury would be redressed by a favorable court ruling.

Conservatives Should Support Free Trade, Oppose Trade Adjustment Assistance

Congress is currently debating whether to pass Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), which would speed up the consideration of any international trade deal that the executive branch reaches over the next several years. Unfortunately, Senate Republicans have caved to Democrats’ demands that this fast-track trade bill be merged with a reauthorization of the Trade Adjustment Assistance program (TAA), a program which gives assistance to workers who have supposedly been displaced as a result of foreign trade. While the former program may potentially be beneficial to promoting freer trade, the latter is a failed and duplicative government welfare program. The two proposals, TPA and TAA, are not complementary and should be considered separately.

Op-ed Placement

The FDA does something right for once, approves first biosimilar

High health care costs are one of those problems that everybody recognizes, and the high cost of pharmaceuticals is a significant contributor to it. The intensive regulatory process drugs have to go through before being approved not only raises prices for consumers, but keeps potentially life-saving medicine off the market for years at a time, even when similar drugs have been approved in Europe, where the regulatory process is different.

USA Freedom 3.0 - Steps Forward and Missed Opportunities

Today, the House will likely pass their bill, the USA FREEDOM Act, to reform and reauthorize the controversial Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act. This portion of the 2001 law was revealed by Edward Snowden to be the legal justification for the massive, nearly limitless collection of American citizens’ telephone metadata by the NSA. Unfortunately, this year's USA Freedom Act as currently conceived is weaker than previous versions.

Just Say No to Congressional Slush Funds

Realizing spending was getting out of hand, Congress passed the 2011 Budget Control Act to cap spending on both defense and nondefense discretionary spending. However, Congress being Congress, they have become adept at finding ways to increase spending beyond the caps without technically going above the caps.

Guess Who’s Running Ads for the Crony Ex-Im Bank?

Looks like the Chamber of Commerce is opening its coffers for a million-dollar ad blitz supporting the Export-Import bank. The ads will feature small businesses that rely on the Ex-Im Bank to keep their businesses functioning and competitive. Of course, the ads fail to mention that an overwhelming majority of the Bank’s funding goes to large multi-national corporations like Boeing, General Electric and Caterpillar.
