Stop Big Government in West Virginia

West Virginia is facing two threats from big government at the state and federal levels: new greenhouse gas regulations from the EPA and a new cigarette tax hike from Charleston. Both are bad fiscal policy. Both would raise costs and harm businesses. Both need to be stopped.

Doing the Right Thing on Spending

Though no one would think it by watching the media’s coverage of Wisconsin, reining in out-of-control spending on public employee unions is a bipartisan issue.  Though only the Republicans have taken reforms far enough in an effort to limit collective bargaining, but it was not a Republican but rather Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo who stated in his inaugural

Now He Must Govern

No real surprises occurred during the Chicago mayor’s race, but the election was a landmark in the sense that the city elected a candidate who was not named Daley. It is hard to see any other way that this election was transformative; conservatives had virtually no chance of electing a mayor in a city which has been ruled by a single party since the Great Depression.

Waiting for Superman...

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to watch “Waiting for Superman,” a heart-breaking documentary about America’s failing public school system.  Sitting with my wife (who is a teacher herself) I could not contain my emotion.  Sadness, anger and utter disgust are a few that come to mind.  The movie covers failing schools throughout the country, and profiles the brave children and few educators that are doing everything they can to improve the system. The prevailing theme of the film: the status quo will do anything to hold on to their power.  Teachers u

Failing More Expensively or Succeeding with Less

Some voices support any sort of domestic government as long as it’s bigger—sometimes so much so that they will believe that any facts available confirm their case.

Wisconsin Battle Transcends Unions

The protests in Wisconsin remind us of issues that transcend unions, pensions and budgets.  It is the often neglected principles of the rule of law and fairness.  As former AFL-CIO president George Meany noted, “It is impossible to bargain collectively with government.”

School Choice: Senate Bill 1

School choice is a movement that many can get behind. After all, where’s the downside? Your tax dollars follow your student, schools are rewarded (or punished) based on their performance, and the entire system is held accountable for its performance. Senate Bill 1, an upcoming bipartisan bill in Pennsylvania, is a step in the right direction for the great state. Nonetheless, it faces opposition, not only from the teacher’s unions and the politicians in their pocket, but also from supporters of school choice, on the grounds that the bill does not go far enough.

Dear Representative, On behalf of over a million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to support SB 1, the Opportunity Scholarship and Educational Improvement Tax Credit Act.” Introduced by Sen. Piccola (R-Dauphin) and Sen. Williams (D-Philadelphia), this bill would allow children the opportunity to attend a better school. We must ensure that all Pennsylvania children receive the quality education that they deserve.
