Wisconsin Defenders of Status Quo Out of Touch with Reality

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

Double Down on Spending

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.

Sometimes Cutting "Wasteful Spending" Isn't Enough

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 Common Sense of School Choice

     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.

Key Vote YES on Rep. King's CR Amendment #273 to Prohibit Funds for Davis-Bacon Wage Requirements

Dear Representative, On behalf of over a million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote YES on amendment #273 to H.R. 1 the Full Year Continuing Appropriation Act that would prohibit any funds from being used to implement Davis-Bacon wage requirements. Since its enactment in 1931, the Davis-Bacon Act has amounted to a bad deal for taxpayers and small businesses. Repealing the Davis-Bacon Act would generate an estimated 31,000 new construction jobs and save taxpayers $60 billion over the next decade.

Key Vote YES on Rooney's CR Amendment No. 2 to End Funding For Second Engine in F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program

Dear Representative, On behalf of over a million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote YES on Rep. Rooney’s (R-Fla.) amendment to H.R. 1 the Full Year Continuing Appropriation Act that would end funding for the second engine in the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program. For nearly a decade, the Air Force has considered the extra engine to be “not necessary and not affordable.” Both President Obama and former President Bush pushed to eliminate taxpayer funding of the alternate engine that burdens both taxpayers and the military.

Key Vote YES on Rep. Jordan's Amendment to the Continuing Resolution

Dear Representative, On behalf of over a million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote YES on Rep. Jordan’s amendment #104 to H.R. 1 the Full Year Continuing Appropriation Act.  As it currently stands, the proposed continuing resolution lowers non-security discretionary spending to $396.6 billion.  This would be the largest discretionary spending cut in American history.  Rep. Jordan’s amendment would go even further by returning non-security discretionary spending to FY2008 levels, which is $378 billion.

The video in which Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York City talks about how ObamaCare will actually likely increase the costs of health insurance and further bureaucratize the medical profession does not reveal anything that anyone in the Tea Party did not already know.
