Bernie’s BEZOS Bill Will Only Harm Poor, Unskilled Workers

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has introduced legislation that would tax companies equivalent to 100 percent of the amount their workers receive in various welfare programs, such as food stamps and Medicaid. The bill, named in an attack on Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, is targeted at companies like Amazon and Wal-Mart who employ many poor and unskilled workers. Sanders claims the bill would induce companies to pay these workers higher wages. The reality is that such a tax would impose egregious harms on the very people it purports to help.

Time to confirm Brett Kavanaugh and free the nation of regulations

BY Adam Brandon

The Senate this week began hearings for the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. He is the right choice for the Supreme Court because he will bring an end to the nearly endless list of federal regulations, many of which were unilaterally imposed by the Obama administration. If stacked one on top of another, all the pages of regulations handed down by the federal bureaucracy would slightly dwarf the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy. Much like that tower, these stifling regulations from the Obama era have caused uncertainty and instability here at home.

FCC Commissioner Carr’s 5G Plan is a Strong Conservative Answer on Tech

Today, executives of big tech platforms such as Facebook and Twitter faced heated questioning from members of Congress on both sides of the aisle. Democrats are upset with these companies over allegations the platforms are being abused to spread misinformation. Republicans are accusing these platforms of censoring certain speech. Unfortunately, while their complaints differ, both sides seem to be inching toward some sort of new regulatory scheme for this industry. This is to be expected from Democrats, but Republicans ought to know better. If they need some inspiration, they ought to look to what is happening at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), particularly what Republican Commissioner Brendan Carr announced just yesterday.
