Collective Bargaining Reform Bill Clears Ohio Senate

WASHINGTON, DC- Today, FreedomWorks cheered the success of Senate Bill 5 (SB5), which passed the Ohio State Senate by a narrow vote of 17-16. Senate Bill 5 is a piece of legislation that would remove automatic pay raises, introduce merit-based pay and restrict the collective bargaining power of state and local employees. This would help address Ohio’s budget crisis and lay the foundation for future job growth. Currently, the state of Ohio has a $10 billion deficit for 2011, and shed over 600,000 private sector jobs in the last ten years.

BY Stephanie Kirchgaessner

A prominent Republican Tea Party activist has launched a campaign to oust Jeffrey Immelt, the chief executive of General Electric, from his appointment as head of a new advisory panel to President Barack Obama on jobs and competitiveness.The populist campaign underlines the deep divisions between traditional Republicans, who have been stalwart supporters of big industrial giants such as GE, and the ultra- conservative Tea Party movement, which views big corporations with as much suspicion as it does “big government”.

What Has The IMF Done With Our Money?

BY Matt Kibbe

For decades government officials have been touting the fallacy that International Monetary Fund payments cost American taxpayers nothing. Even former U.S. Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin claimed that "the IMF has not cost the taxpayer a dime."This is misleading. Since the IMF operates under a veil of secrecy, these hidden taxpayer subsidies are not subject to annual appropriations, and they are nowhere to be found in the federal budget.

Tea Party Gets Early Start on G.O.P. Targets for 2012

BY Kate Zernike

Leaders of more than 70 Tea Party groups in Indiana gathered last weekend to sign a proclamation saying they would all support one candidate — as yet undetermined — in a primary challenge to Senator Richard G. Lugar, the Republican who has represented the state since 1977. They are organizing early, they say, to prevent what happened last year, when several Tea Party candidates split the vote in Republican Senate primaries, allowing the most establishment of the candidates to win with less than 40 percent.
