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.
Dear Representative, FreedomWorks is a leading grassroots organization with over one million members fighting for lower taxes, less government and more freedom. I am writing today to urge you to vote YES on Wisconsin’s budget repair bill. Faced with an impending budget crisis, Wisconsin’s Governor Walker has proposed a “budget repair” bill that will balance the budget without having to raise taxes on any of its citizens.
As the debate rages over Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's, "Budget Repair" bill it is important that we stand behind his valiant effort. Local and national tea party groups are organizing a "Stand with Walker" rally for this Saturday at the Wisconsin state capitol building that I urge you to attend. The unions are mounting a big attack, as seen by the thousands demonstrating the governor's proposal; we must respond!
Dear Representative, FreedomWorks is a leading grassroots organization with over one million members fighting for lower taxes, less government and more freedom. I am writing to urge you to vote YES on SB113 which would prohibit collective bargaining between teacher unions and local school boards also referred to as LEAs in Tennessee. Introduced by Senator Jack Johnson (District 23), this bill would bring cost effectiveness and competiveness back to the local school systems.
It is difficult to see where the objection to school choice lies. After all, isn’t it common sense that your taxes should pay for your child’s education, regardless of which school they attend? Why should failing schools be supported by your money? Consistently poor performance at a regular job results in termination. Why should the education system be any different?
Dear Representative, FreedomWorks is a leading grassroots organization with over one million members fighting for lower taxes, less government and more freedom. I am writing today to ask you to vote YES on SB5 that would remove automatic pay raises, introduce merit-based pay and revoke the collective bargaining power of state and local employees. This would help address Ohio’s budget crisis and create an abundance of new jobs.
It was inevitable that attempts to trim government at the state-level as well as the federal level would offend some sensibilities. What was not inevitable was that the offended parties would do such a poor job making their case. In a recent op-ed in The Washington Post, Harold Meyerson resorted to hyperbole, comparing Wisconsin’s new governor, Scott Walker, to Hosni Mubarak and writing: The real goal of the American right is to reduce public employee
After 3 years of prodigious deficits, gratuitous spending and a midterm election shellacking, the American people expected a semblance of fiscal discipline. President Obama, with his new found political capital, was boldly going to drop his iron hand and finally “go line by line” through the federal budget to cut spending. Instead, Nancy Pelosi’s routinely quoted “are you serious?” seems a more apt summation of this budget proposal.
The Tea Party members of Congress demonstrated Thursday that bipartisanship is possible when used to cut wasteful spending; against all odds, they and Democrats joined together to cancel the second engine for the F-35 which had long been a symbol of government excess (being opposed by both the Bush White House, the Obama White House and the Secretary of Defense). The Tea Party Caucus also sent an important message that—with the budgetary crisis the nation currently faces—no department ca
The Pennsylvania legislature is currently considering a landmark step forward in education: Senate Bill 1. Senate bill 1 is a bipartisan bill that supports a voucher program for qualified low income students in failing school districts. This bill would allow students who are currently experiencing academic success in the difficult setting of a failing school an opportunity to leave that school in favor of a better one, taking their tax money with them in the form of vouchers.
