Republican Senators that Have NOT Cosponsored Audit the Fed

Senator Rand Paul has reintroduced legislation to audit the Federal Reserve in the Senate. The bill, S. 209, currently has 24 cosponsors. This legislation is important because the people deserve to know who the Federal Reserve is bailing out behind closed doors. Here are the Republicans that have not cosponsored the audit the Fed bill yet. Please call them or tweet at them and politely ask them to cosponsor S. 209!

Stand with Rand Paul Against Domestic Drone Strikes

Senator Rand Paul showed a great amount of courage when he filibustered John Brennan’s appointment for CIA director on the Senate floor yesterday, following the Obama administration’s refusal to answer whether or not it is constitutional for the government to kill U.S. citizens on U.S. soil with drones. The answer should be simple: no. It is a blatant violation of the Constitution and it stands against everything this country was founded on for the government to kill any citizen without a trial or due process.

Iowa Lawmakers Propose Increase in Gas Tax

Lawmakers and lobbyists in Iowa are pushing for an additional 10 cent per gallon gasoline tax, on top of the 21 cent gas tax already in place. Raising the gas tax, especially in this stalled economy, would hurt Iowa families by forcing them to pay even more at the gas pump. This proposed tax would be particularly cruel since the average gas price in Iowa is a whopping $3.70 per gallon.

The Fears over Sequestration are Unwarranted

With the sequester set to take effect on March 1st, many politicians and pundits are acting like the world is going to end. But the American people should have no fear: this is just another one of Washington’s manufactured crises.

Call Your Senators: Jack Lew’s Confirmation Hearing Today

Treasury Secretary nominee Jack Lew had his confirmation hearing before the Senate Finance Committee today. As Obama’s Chief of Staff, Jack Lew did not say anything surprising—he confirmed that he is just another big government Washington insider.

Treasury Nominee Jack Lew Accused of Breaking Medicare Law

Prominent Senate Republicans are accusing Treasury Secretary nominee Jack Lew of violating Medicare law. Under federal law, presidential administrations are required to submit a plan to Congress on how to fix Medicare’s financial issues if the program’s funding is imbalanced. Medicare funding has been imbalanced for many consecutive years but Congress has not received one legally mandated legislative Medicare proposal from the Obama administration.

Reasons to Oppose the So-Called Violence Against Women Act

On Monday, the Senate is expected to vote on reauthorizing and expanding the so-called Violence against Women Act (VAWA). This unconstitutional law was originally signed by President Clinton in 1994 and has shown no signs of actually reducing violence against women.

What We Learned From the Trillion Dollar Coin Debate

The debt ceiling debate reached a new level of absurdity when some pundits began tossing around the idea of a $1 trillion coin. Instead of advocating for spending cuts to avoid hitting the $16.4 trillion debt limit, proponents of the one trillion dollar coin believe that the Federal Reserve just needs to create more money. They want the U.S.

Treasury Secretary Nominee Jack Lew's Shady History with Citigroup

There are many troubling facts about Obama’s nominee for Treasury Secretary, Jack Lew, but perhaps the most disturbing is his history with too-big-to-fail Citigroup. This should raise red flags for people for all political beliefs—it signals that Jack Lew would be just as corrupt as his predecessor Timothy Geithner.
