Stop President Obama's Trial Lawyer Giveaway

Last month, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) announced a new proposed rule designed to line the pockets of trial lawyers. The seemingly innocuous rule would effectively outlaw certain contractual provisions related to consumer financial products. But rather than protecting consumers, this proposed rule was about helping trial lawyers, a special interest that overwhelmingly supports Democrats like President Obama. Now, you have the opportunity to comment on this rule and tell the CFPB to stay out of your financial decisions.

Big Labor Giveaway: The Federal Government Is Trying to Destroy Franchise Businesses

In August 2015, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), in a departure from decades of precedent, unilaterally redefined what it means to be an employer. In the administrative decision, Browning-Ferris v NLRB, the unelected NLRB decreed that some employers were responsible for the employees of others. This action threatens to destroy the franchise model of business, harming job creation and putting 40,000 small businesses at risk. The difficulties for small business created by this decision are highlighted today in a Senate Small Business Committee hearing.

The American People Need Protection from the CFPB

Did you know that there is an agency in Washington, DC able to wield the full power of the federal government, but whose director cannot be removed and is not answerable to the president, whose funding is not controlled by Congress, and whose decisions are difficult to challenge in court? Did you know that this agency is almost completely exempted from the Constitution’s check and balances? Did you know that this unaccountable power is vested in a single person? And did you know that this single person’s appointment was made illegally?

The Legacy of Dodd-Frank: Maintaining "Too Big to Fail" and Destroying Community Banks

In 2010, Congress passed, and President Obama signed into law, a massive 2,300-page banking regulatory bill called the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The premise of Dodd-Frank was to prevent another financial crisis and, as the title suggests, reform regulation of Wall Street. Like many well-intentioned laws, however, Dodd-Frank in the hands of the regulatory state has turned into a crushing burden, highlighted today in a House Small Business Committee hearing titled “Bearing the Burden: Overregulation Impact on Small Banks and Rural Communities.” Rather than ending the situation where a few massive banking institutions were “too big to fail,” Dodd-Frank has actually entrenched the big banks at the top of the heap while crushing small community banks and credit unions.

Liberty Kitty Travels the Country to Shed Light on Over-Criminalization and Regulation

Liberty Kitty has learned the hard way that overcriminalization and excessive regulation ruins lives and hurts the economy. She was prevented from grooming neighborhood kittens because she did not have the time or money it would take to become licensed, and she was incarcerated for 7 cat years under a mandatory minimum sentencing law for a non-violent crime.

A Digital Bill of Rights—It’s Time

In 1995, the Internet began, in earnest, as a commercial endeavor. Since that time, its growth has been explosive. Starting with only 16 million users that first year, the Internet now has over 3.4 billion users today—almost half the world’s population.

SEC Celebrates Small Business Week, Releases Another Novel of Regulations

Just in time for Small Business Week, the SEC issued a 341-page concept release on disclosure requirements. Their generous gift of rambling, redundant Small Business Week reading material is accompanied with 340 pages of specific requests for comments. Unfortunately, the SEC forgot that every great novel needs a cover, so we provided them with the one pictured above.

In His Final Year, Obama Reaps What He Has Sown

Even as President Obama took to the national stage to assure the nation that the state of the union is strong and that the American economy is robust, back in the real world, the cracks were starting to show. For years, economists who understand the consequences of government interventionism in markets have warned that the policies of easy money, reckless spending, debt financing, and tight regulations could only lead to disaster. The mirage of short-term job growth, low inflation, and a booming stock market had to come to end. While it was impossible predict exactly when it would happen, logic and history dictated that the fiscal house of cards Obama has spent the last seven years meticulously building must, eventually, come crashing down.
