Key Vote

See Whether Your Senators Voted for the Internet Sales Tax Here!

Last night, the Senate voted to pass the so-called Marketplace Fairness Act (S. 743) and send it to the House.  This bill allows states to band together to form a sales tax cartel under which a business which sells products online must collect taxes for states where their goods are being shipped.  There are a multitude of problems with this bill – it is potentially unconstitutional, it raises taxes, it will harm startup businesses online, and it fundamentally changes the way that taxes can be collected.

Will the FDA Hold Back Medical Innovation?

Kurzweil’s Law of Accelerating Returns is the observation that as technologies advance, the rate of change continuously increases. Innovations build off previous discoveries, so that the greater the aggregate level of technology, the more potential there is for further advancement. Now that the Internet has made the entirety of human knowledge readily accessible to anyone who cares to look, opportunities for invention have never been greater.

Yard Signs Encroaching on Your Property Rights

The yearly and very American tradition of yard sales is under attack.  An article in the Potomac Local mentions a Virginia state law making it illegal to “place signs in the right-of-way of all public roads.

Why So Many Regulations Make So Little Sense

At some point in our lives, most of us will run up against a government regulation that seems to make no sense. While most people tend to believe that the government has their best interest at heart, there are also times when even the most devout supporter of a tightly regulated economy finds that a particular rule defies all attempts at logical interpretation. Why is this so? Why do lawmakers enact laws that are plainly ridiculous?

Grade Inflation Concerns Are Overblown

Throughout the nation’s college and universities, grades are getting higher. In fact, they have been getting higher for eighty years. But suddenly, government officials with too much time on their hands have decided that something needs to be done about it.

President Obama’s Budget: Hardly a “Grand Bargain”

Like malfunctioning clockwork, President Barack Obama's new budget proposal has arrived (a little late) to provide us all with some comic relief. Aptly referred to as a "fantasyland" by POLITICO's David Nather, President Obama's budget hikes taxes, expands federal interference in education, increases the minimum wage, and bails out another federal agency. Sound appealing?

The New Luddites

Today, Ned Ludd and his followers are best known from the term Luddite: a much needed contribution to the English language that expresses fear or hatred of technology. But while the word has since taken on the connotations of a back-to-nature, Druidic-like disdain for modernity, it should be remembered that the original motivations for the Luddite movement were purely economic. The textile artisans saw their livelihood threatened by advances in mechanization, and lashed out to protect their own interests.

Wind Subsidies: Spinning Out of Control

Since the early 1990s, the federal government has buttressed the wind energy industry through a series of programs and subsidies. The flagship program has been the Wind Production Tax Credit (PTC). This program provided a subsidy of 2.2 cents for every kilowatt-hour produced by wind utilities.
