School Choice; Just a Click Away

My daughter spoke Finnish on Christmas Eve.I thought my nine-year-old had just made up some Swedish Chef-style gibberish until she provided a detailed translation. And a few of her phrases sounded a lot like my older Finnish relatives talking.As it turned out, my daughter had discovered Google Translate. She converted a few English sentences to the obscure Nordic language, clicked the “listen” button, and practiced the paragraph repeatedly until she had it memorized.

Diving Off the Regulatory Cliff

While Americans wait ever-anxiously for our elected leaders to hammer out a solution to the so-called fiscal cliff, business leaders and economic analysts have already watched the country fall off what could only be described as a cliff of its own.  The Obama administration has sent the nation plummeting into a sea of anti-business, anti-growth red tape over the last few years, but even as the economy struggles to regain any traction, the White House is intending to accelerate the rate of descent.Welcome to the 'regulatory cliff'.

The Lessons from Plan B

If President Obama and Senator Reid were actually negotiating in good faith, then one could argue that Speaker Boehner's Plan B was an acceptable, if unpalatable, compromise.  After all, it permanently extended the current tax rates for very nearly all Americans, eliminating the annual game of chicken in Congress over whether our taxes will automatically increase.

Key Vote NO on Speaker Boehner's "Plan B" Tax Plan

Dear FreedomWorks member,As one of our millions of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your Representative and urge him or her to vote against Speaker Boehner’s “Plan B” tax plan.  This bill, being offered as replacement language for H.J.Res. 66, would prevent automatic tax rate increases for most individuals, but would allow taxes to automatically increase for some higher-income Americans.

We Need Lazy Politicians

“Do Something.” “Do Something!” “We have to DO SOMETHING!”Whenever a problem arises, be it an incomprehensible tragedy like Newtown or an imperfection in our economy, those in government and their media enablers are the first to cry, “do something.”

50 > 1: Changing Washington from the Outside

Ask your neighbors and co-workers a simple question: "What are the wealthiest counties in America?" Here are the answers I got:“Is Manhattan a county? That has to be one of the richest.”“Which county has Beverly Hills?”“San Francisco County has to be up there. Silicon Valley too.”

Lansing the Boil

My family has deep roots in Michigan, from the frigid locks of Sault Ste. Marie to the college-town ambience of Kalamazoo. But ultimately, my parents left Michigan and eventually the Midwest in search of jobs. Jobs found in the “right-to-work” state of Arizona.
