Life, Liberty and Unlimited Minutes

Last week during Congress’s “vote-a-rama” over amendments to the continuing budget resolution, the Senate voted, mostly along party lines, to reject an amendment that would eliminate a government subsidy to provide cell phone service to low income consumers.

Overregulation Takes the “Fun” Out of “Funeral Home Management”

The passing of a loved one is an intensely difficult and emotional time for the family, and the last thing they want to think about is costly and complex arrangements for the burial. It is therefore somewhat dismaying to learn what kinds of pressure the operators of funeral homes are subject to under current industry regulations, many of which have the effect of increasing costs that are then passed on to consumers.

The Importance of Pop-Culture in the Fight for Liberty

There is a tremendous amount of money, time and effort spent on promoting political ideas through think tanks, political action committees, cable news stations and a myriad of other sources. Billions are spent on elections, and woe betide anyone unfortunate enough to live in a swing state, doomed to unrelenting robocalls and political advertisements for months on end.

Elections Are Expensive and That's Okay

The swiftness and efficiency of the recent papal election has some commentators lamenting the state of the American electoral system, particularly with regard to the increasing expense involved in selecting a president. The 2012 presidential election, for example, lasted nearly two years and ended up costing in excess of $5 billion.

Phony Sequester Consequences Continued: White House Tours

In an article released yesterday, I demonstrated the absurdity of the White House’s claims regarding the impact of sequestration on lines at the airport. Today, I continue this analysis by examining the budget for the United States Secret Service.

Despite Rhetoric, FAA Can Handle More Flights With Less Money

Of the extensive parade of horribles the White House has been insisting will occur as a result of the sequestration cuts in early March, impediments to Americans’ ability to travel are among the most ridiculous.

Freedomworks Issue Analysis: Marketplace Fairness Act

The Marketplace Fairness Act would allow the states to compel online retailers to collect taxes on remote sales, increasing the cost of doing business and damaging competition unfairly.The Act places burdensome administration costs on some of the country's most innovative retailers, regulating them in a way that is at once discriminatory and harmful to economic growth.

Can We Stop Pretending Democrats Care About Black People, Immigrants?

Perhaps the greatest strength of the Democratic party is its ability to present itself as empathetic, caring and compassionate while simultaneously pushing policies that hurt the very people they claim to represent. The fact that they continually get away with this bald-faced sleight of hand is a testament both to their rhetorical skill and the ineptness of the Republican opposition.

Internet Taxes Don't Make Markets Fairer

The issue of how to handle sales conducted remotely over the internet has been a thorny one for lawmakers, as they struggle to adapt policies to rapidly advancing technologies. Nine states currently collect sales tax on out-of-state, online transactions, but a new bill dubbed the Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013 would expand this to a national mandate. The argument behind such legislation is that local retailers are placed at an unfair disadvantage, because their prices must include sales tax whereas out-of-state vendors are under no such compulsion.

Obama Proceeds with Caution on Cybersecurity

Largely drowned out by media coverage of the State of the Union address Tuesday night was the simultaneous release of an executive order entitled “Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity.” In a nutshell, the order paves the way for an information sharing program between government and private industry, in order to assess and address threats to cybersecurity.
