Dear FreedomWorks member, As one of our one million-plus members who support free markets, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to support several bills to amend ObamaCare. The new health care law provided billions of dollars in mandatory spending for numerous new programs. This funding procedure ultimately reduces congressional oversight by shifting power to the Executive Branch. All of the following five bills would increase congressional responsibility and oversight by converting ObamaCare’s mandatory spending to discretionary spending:
Since the Federal Reserve opened its doors in 1914, it has never been audited. It remains the most secret and least accountable operation of the federal government. Our dollar has lost 97 percent of its value since its creation. Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) have both introduced the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2011. The Federal Reserve Transparency Act would eliminate the current audit restrictions placed on the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and require a full and thorough audit of the Federal Reserve.
Dear FreedomWorks member,
Randi Weingarten’s interview in the Wall Street Journal was disappointing but not surprising. As the leader of the American Teachers’ Federation, the second most powerful teacher’s union in America, Weingarten revealed herself to be a staunch defender of the status quo. She doesn’t argue that kids are getting a sufficient education (that is becoming increasingly difficult), but she stood firmly against anything that might reverse the trend. He
Dear FreedomWorks member, As one of our million-plus FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote YES on H.R. 471 the Scholarships for Opportunity and Results Act (SOAR). Introduced by Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH), the bill would reauthorize the Washington, DC Opportunity Scholarship Program. Congress ended this program in 2009 despite the overwhelming success of the cost-savings program. It is urgent to bring back the DC scholarship program for the sake of DC students and taxpayers.
Dear Senator,On behalf of over one million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote YES on the Save our States Act, offered by Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) as Amendment No. 197 to S.493, the Small Business Innovation Research Reauthorization Act, currently being considered by the Senate.
Dear Senator, On behalf of over a million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to support several amendments to S.493 the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Reauthorization Bill and others that reduce the size of government.With our nation over $14 trillion in debt, I urge you to support any effort to rein in excess spending. The following amendments will set us in the right direction towards prosperity and job creation.
Dear Representative, On behalf of over one million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to sign onto the Republican Study Committee Health Care Working Group’s letter asking the Republican leadership to introduce an alternative health care plan with no mandates. We applaud the Republican leadership for passing the Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act. The next step is to devise an alternative health care plan that will truly lower costs and improve health care quality.
Dear Representative, On behalf of over one million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to cosponsor H.R. 1049 the ROAD (regulatory openness, accountability, and disclosure) to Jobs Act of 2011. Introduced by Rep. Bill Johnson (R-OH), the bill would require the Council of Environmental Quality to release an annual report detailing the permitting process for energy projects. The ROAD to Jobs Act is an important step to exposing how unelected federal bureaucrats are stifling job growth.
