America's Great Leap Forward

I just finished a book on China's Great Leap Forward written during the 1950s. The book shook me to the core with images of starvation, brutality, and suffering. The reason China experienced this pain was the idea that the government could move the country "Forward" using redistribution and central planning methods.

Obama: Clueless and Wrong

President Obama granted an interview with CBS News in which he not only mischaracterized basic economic principles, but did so using his usual logical fallacies. After making these basic errors, he went on to question his opponent's ability even to think about the issues Mr. Obama had just shown himself unable to comprehend.

As Promised - Team Obama Kills Another 750 Coal Jobs in VA, KY and WV

In January 2008 Barack Obama told the San Francisco Chronicle:"Under my plan of a cap and trade system electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Businesses would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that cost onto consumers." He promised that his plan would cause electricity rates to skyrocket.

A Clue to a Clueless President

Barack Obama is not merely uninformed on economics, he is enthusiastically misinformed. He says he keeps trying to fix the economic mess he "inherited", but nothing he does works.   There has been absolutely nothing in @BarackObama's performance to date that suggests he can improve the economy if given 4 more years. Zip.— Brad Thor (@BradThor) The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. No matter how much a politician likes to proclaim his skill and wisdom -- and Barack Obama likes it as few others -- eventually the effects of his policies on the real world are what matter. Barack Obama has not done what he said he would do, because he can't.

MarketWatch Says Obama's Spending Binge Never Happened, Keeps Straight Face

Just when you thought media bias couldn't possibly be more blatant, along comes this article from MarketWatch, a purportedly trusted source of Wall Street news. (Never mind that MarketWatch is operated by CBS, who should change their acronym to Cooing Barack Supporters ... but I digress).This article so blatantly misrepresents the facts that it's difficult to know where to start:By Rex Nutting, MarketWatch

Help Save Pennsylvania Children: Support School Choice

For more than a year FreedomWorks and local activists have been working hard to bring education reform to Pennsylvania. Concerned families, school choice supporters, bold legislators and even the governor himself have stood up with us against Pennsylvania's education establishment in an effort to reform the state's failing school system. Despite this bi-partisan support, some legislators have chosen to ignore the voters, failing to protect the needs of students, and instead voting to preserve union power.

Help Bring Charter Schools to Mississippi

According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress, only 22% of Mississippi 4th graders are proficient in math and reading, and only 19% of 8th graders are proficient in those same subjects. These numbers demonstrate the abject failure of an entrenched education establishment, and that’s why FreedomWorks is helping Governor Bryant bring free-market solutions to the education system. The governor is committed to reform, but he needs our help to get it done.

Obama Throws 10,000 Students Under the School Bus

Yesterday President Obama unveiled his budget for 2013. The budget is filled with higher taxes and more spending, however something is missing, The D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program.  This program grants educational opportunities to mostly poor and minority students in Washington D.C.  The Heritage Foundation reported that “[t]he D.C. OSP has been highly successful. According to federally-mandated evaluations of the program, student achievement has increased, and graduation rates of voucher students have increased significantly. While graduation rates in D.C.

Obama’s American Jobs Act will Crush Jobs

President Obama’s big job speech last week sounded more like yet another campaign speech. In typical Obama fashion, it was full of grand promises without much substance. He introduced his American Jobs Act with lots of feel good rhetoric minus the useful details of the costly plan.
