Common Core Update: State and Federal

As the Senate prepares to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), a bill which could have big implications for the American education system, state legislatures and governors have been busy tackling their own reforms to Common Core education standards. Here’s what’s been going on in several key states.

States are taking the lead on justice reform

Whenever there is a violent conflict between police and citizens, the media goes into a frenzy looking for someone to blame. Some accuse the police of brutality, racism, and inhumanity. Others point out the hazards of a dangerous and thankless job, which requires dealing with some pretty unsavory people. The one thing everyone seems to agree on is that there is a problem that needs to be addressed, but while politicians and pundits waste breath with accusations and complaints, it’s all too rare that we have someone step up and offer genuine policy solutions.

Don't Fix ObamaCare, End It

Congress is rapidly reaching a crossroads on ObamaCare. When the Supreme Court rules in a couple of weeks, there is a decent chance that the IRS’s insurance subsidies in 34 states will be officially ruled illegal and cease to operate. If that happens, politicians on both sides of the aisle are going to need to figure out what to do, because we will then be in a situation where ObamaCare is mandating that people buy insurance that they absolutely cannot afford.

Better Late than Never: Christie Turns on Common Core

Say what you will about Republican governors, eventually they catch on. Well, most of them do, anyway (I’m looking at you, Jeb.)The latest addition to the ever-expanding number of governors turning against Common Core education standards is New Jersey’s own Chris Christie

Executive Spying Goes Further than the Patriot Act

On Sunday, the Senate will vote on reauthorizing Section 215 of the Patriot Act, the controversial section that allows the bulk collection of telephone metadata. Actually, it doesn’t allow it, according to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, but everyone is still acting like it does and framing the debate accordingly.

Civil asset forfeiture: The reform issue that’s sweeping the nation

The issue of civil asset forfeiture is getting a lot of attention these days, and with good reason. This centuries-old law enforcement procedure is based on British laws that predate the American Revolution, and which do not reflect the principles embodied in the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Stand with Rand, Again

As you read this, Sen. Rand Paul is standing on the Senate floor, delivering an old-fashioned talking filibuster. He intends to stand until he can no longer speak.

Chris Christie’s Position on NSA Spying Is "Ridiculous."

Gov. Chris Christie has never been a particularly distinguished champion of freedom, but his recent comments and outright defense of the NSA’s illegal spying program was eyebrow raising even for him.

Conservatives Should Support Free Trade, Oppose Trade Adjustment Assistance

Congress is currently debating whether to pass Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), which would speed up the consideration of any international trade deal that the executive branch reaches over the next several years. Unfortunately, Senate Republicans have caved to Democrats’ demands that this fast-track trade bill be merged with a reauthorization of the Trade Adjustment Assistance program (TAA), a program which gives assistance to workers who have supposedly been displaced as a result of foreign trade. While the former program may potentially be beneficial to promoting freer trade, the latter is a failed and duplicative government welfare program. The two proposals, TPA and TAA, are not complementary and should be considered separately.

The FDA does something right for once, approves first biosimilar

High health care costs are one of those problems that everybody recognizes, and the high cost of pharmaceuticals is a significant contributor to it. The intensive regulatory process drugs have to go through before being approved not only raises prices for consumers, but keeps potentially life-saving medicine off the market for years at a time, even when similar drugs have been approved in Europe, where the regulatory process is different.
