Republicans Lead Civil Rights Charge with School Choice

Republicans are beginning to coalesce around School Choice with Senators Rand Paul and Lamar Alexander’s amendment.  Senator Ted Cruz of Texas began with a rallying cry in his key-note address at CPAC declaring “education is too important for it to be controlled by bureaucrats in Washington, taking choices away from parents and kids…We need to champion school choice – the civil rights issue of the next generation.”  Not only is Senator Ted Cruz correct about school choice being the civil rights issue of the next generation, but it is the civil rights issue of this generation.

The Unfair Effects of the Marketplace Fairness Act

On Friday, March 22, the United States Senate conducted a “vote-a-rama,” featuring an unlimited number of amendments to the federal budget being brought to the floor for a vote.

Overregulation Takes the “Fun” Out of “Funeral Home Management”

The passing of a loved one is an intensely difficult and emotional time for the family, and the last thing they want to think about is costly and complex arrangements for the burial. It is therefore somewhat dismaying to learn what kinds of pressure the operators of funeral homes are subject to under current industry regulations, many of which have the effect of increasing costs that are then passed on to consumers.

Senate Vote-a-Rama - See How Your Senators Voted on Key Amendments Here!

Last Friday, the Senate voted on dozens of amendments to their budget resolution before eventually (narrowly) passing the budget itself. This frenzy of amendments, known as a "vote-a-rama", gave many Senators a chance to force their colleagues onto the record on many key issues that have not come up for a vote in the Senate in years.Among the most important (and revealing) votes were on Medicare reform, internet sales taxes, ObamaCare repeal, carbon taxes, and Senator Rand Paul's budget plan.

Fallacy Friday: Debunking Arbitrary Increases in the Minimum Wage

Fallacy Friday: Raising the Minimum Wage In and of itself, the idea that raising the minimum wage somehow benefits the working class is a form of the classic broken window fallacy.

The Importance of Pop-Culture in the Fight for Liberty

There is a tremendous amount of money, time and effort spent on promoting political ideas through think tanks, political action committees, cable news stations and a myriad of other sources. Billions are spent on elections, and woe betide anyone unfortunate enough to live in a swing state, doomed to unrelenting robocalls and political advertisements for months on end.

2013 Budget Report Card: Rand Paul's Budget Still the Best

This week the House and Senate will likely vote on their budget plans, along with a few conservative alternative budgets. To help you see where each plan stands in terms of spending restraint and economic growth, we have put together our second annual "Budget Report Card", which rates each of the major plans according to various economic criteria.This year even Paul Ryan's House plan balances in 10 years, while Rand Paul and the Republican Study Committee plans balance in 5 and 4 years, respectively. The Senate Democrats' plan, unfortunately, never reaches balance.

Ohio Becomes Medicaid Expansion Twilight Zone

Ohio has become a Medicaid expansion Twilight Zone, as avowedly conservative Governor John Kasich works with progressive activists to deliver new entitlement benefits with money that doesn't exist. Ohio's press, which loves the idea of "free" federal funding through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), repeats pro-expansion falsehoods without a hint of skepticism.
