Despite Rhetoric, FAA Can Handle More Flights With Less Money

Of the extensive parade of horribles the White House has been insisting will occur as a result of the sequestration cuts in early March, impediments to Americans’ ability to travel are among the most ridiculous.

Freedomworks Issue Analysis: Marketplace Fairness Act

The Marketplace Fairness Act would allow the states to compel online retailers to collect taxes on remote sales, increasing the cost of doing business and damaging competition unfairly.The Act places burdensome administration costs on some of the country's most innovative retailers, regulating them in a way that is at once discriminatory and harmful to economic growth.

Can We Stop Pretending Democrats Care About Black People, Immigrants?

Perhaps the greatest strength of the Democratic party is its ability to present itself as empathetic, caring and compassionate while simultaneously pushing policies that hurt the very people they claim to represent. The fact that they continually get away with this bald-faced sleight of hand is a testament both to their rhetorical skill and the ineptness of the Republican opposition.

Labor Relations in the United States and the National Right to Work Act

Earlier this year, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced the ‘National Right-to-Work Act,’ a bill which would amend the National Labor Relations Act (also known as the Wagner Act) with the goal of preserving and protecting “the free choice of individual employees to form, join, or assist labor organizations, or to refrain from such activities.” According to the National Labor Relations Board, “Congress enacted the National Labor Relations Act…in 1

Internet Taxes Don't Make Markets Fairer

The issue of how to handle sales conducted remotely over the internet has been a thorny one for lawmakers, as they struggle to adapt policies to rapidly advancing technologies. Nine states currently collect sales tax on out-of-state, online transactions, but a new bill dubbed the Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013 would expand this to a national mandate. The argument behind such legislation is that local retailers are placed at an unfair disadvantage, because their prices must include sales tax whereas out-of-state vendors are under no such compulsion.

Corporate Welfare in the Federal Tax System

Frequently, entitlement reform is discussed among policymakers as a way to reduce government spending, but the entitlement reform discussed often concerns individual entitlements, not those directed toward corporations.
