Most notably, the 2012 GOP Platform calls for both an Audit of the Federal Reserve and the full repeal of Obamacare, two of the cornerstones of the Freedom Platform.  Striking similarities between the two platforms are an encouraging reminder of the ground that the freedom movement is gaining within the establishment Republican Party.

California has lost 600,000 jobs in the last decade and has a $26 billion deficit. Their public schools aren’t performing well, with lower grades and graduation rates than students in other states.

Key Vote NO on the Interest Rate Reduction Act

Dear FreedomWorks member, As one of our million-plus FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote NO on H.R. 4628, the Interest Rate Reduction Act. Introduced by Rep. Judy Biggert (R-IL), the bill would keep student loan rates at 3.4 percent instead of allowing them to rise to their 2007 level of 6.8 percent. The cost of keeping student loan interest rates low will cost taxpayers billions of dollars.
