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.
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.
Dear Representative,On behalf of over a million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I write to urge your support for several amendments to H.R. 1, the Full Year Continuing Appropriation Act.
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.
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.
President Obama apparently got a message in November: the American people didn’t like the way he was spending their money.
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.
Recently, President Obama called for the elimination of the alternate engine program for the joint strike fighter (JSF) program in an effort to cut back on defense spending. In this era of fiscal irresponsibility, the Obama administration has made a decision that is finally in the interest of the American taxpayer.
