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.

End the Debt Ceiling Shenanigans

Here we go again… The U.S. is expected to hit the $16.4 trillion debt ceiling by the end of February. That means that we can expect more partisan bickering in Washington over whether to raise the debt ceiling—with or without spending cuts. It has now become typical for Washington to stumble from one manufactured crisis to the next instead of fixing the root cause of the problem.

The Problem is Over Spending, Not Under Taxation

President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner are currently negotiating a deficit reduction deal to stop the sequester “cuts.”  The main fight is over Obama’s proposal to raise federal income taxes on Americans making over $250,000 a year. While Boehner claims he is opposed to raising the top two income tax brackets, some worry that he will accept a bad tax-hiking deal in order to stop the sequester.

Rampant Wasteful Spending in Pentagon Budget

Some lawmakers claim that we cannot afford to cut a dime of Pentagon spending. That is simply untrue. Like every federal government department, the Department of Defense is susceptible to wasteful spending and pet projects. Perhaps more so because many lawmakers do not seriously scrutinize the Pentagon budget for fear of being perceived as “weak on defense.”

Congress Should Support the Sequester

The main order of business on Capitol Hill during the lame duck session is how to deal with the sequester. Since the infamous Super Committee established under the Budget Control Act of 2011 was unable to reach a deficit-reduction deal, automatic across-the-board spending “cuts” will go into effect on January 1, 2013. While the sequester is not ideal because it does not allow departments to choose what to “cut”, Congress should stand firm on the budget sequester set forth in the Budget Control Act of 2011.
