An Article I Awakening: Congress Moves to Reclaim Its Full Constitutional Authority

Boldly wielding his pen and phone, President Obama has shamelessly used executive power to bypass those pesky Republican majorities in Congress. But these broad powers that he has used (and abused), the executive orders and the overbroad regulations, can in most respects be blamed on decades of Congressional atrophy. Which is why it is so encouraging that reasserting Congress’ constitutional authority has finally become a top-line issue in Washington D.C., with the launch of multiple major projects dedicated to the restoration of the full range of powers in Article I of the U.S. Constitution.

Coalition Letter: Support Amash's Bill to Repeal the Flawed "Cybersecurity" Act of 2015

FreedomWorks has signed onto the following coalition letter, led by the R Street Institute. This letter urges support for H.R. 4350, a recent bipartisan bill introduced by Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) that would repeal the Cybersecurity Act of 2015. As you may recall, this major bill was tucked into the omnibus government funding bill in December of last year, with no chance for most lawmakers to even read it. The bill contains fundamental flaws with regard to privacy and due process, detailed in the letter below, and should be repealed.

New CBO Deficit Projections: Running Out of Road for that Can We're Kicking

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has released its updated budget projections, and there's no sugar-coating the numbers. The federal government’s annual budget deficits were already slated to start rising again in 2016, but thanks to some discouraging economic growth predictions and a bloated budget deal that added tens of billions in new spending, we’re now looking at returning to trillion dollar annual deficits in only six years (2022).

A Crucial Victory on the Road to Repealing ObamaCare

The House is set to send the president a bill repealing the majority of his signature health care law. While the president will certainly veto the bill, doing so merely underscores its implied promise: elect the right president in 2016, and ObamaCare's days are numbered.

Key Vote NO on the FY 2016 Omnibus Spending Bill

Ever since John Boehner's parting "gift" in August, another horrible, bloated omnibus spending package was pretty much inevitable. Now, with days to spare before the new year, we can see the result. Predictably, friends of limited government won't like it much. The spending increases alone are bad, but the combination of policy riders that did and did not make the final bill sealed the deal. Thus, on behalf of our millions of activists nationwide, FreedomWorks opposes this year's omnibus spending bill, and will score against it on our Online Congressional Scorecard for 2015.

Congress Poised to Pull a Cybersecurity End-Around

The Senate and House intelligence committees are working towards selling out Americans' privacy this weekend for the illusion of cybersecurity. Specifically, the Senate's Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) and its two House counterparts (the NCPAA and PCNA) are merging -- but indications are that they may be doing so by adopting the worst provisions from each of the three bills. Worst of all, the majority of the input appears to be coming more from the intelligence committees, and not from the people who would actually have oversight of the information sharing regime in the Homeland Security Committees.
