WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-N.J.) threat to release confidential committee documents in an attempt to obstruct the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon, commented:
The Senate this week began hearings for the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. He is the right choice for the Supreme Court because he will bring an end to the nearly endless list of federal regulations, many of which were unilaterally imposed by the Obama administration. If stacked one on top of another, all the pages of regulations handed down by the federal bureaucracy would slightly dwarf the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy. Much like that tower, these stifling regulations from the Obama era have caused uncertainty and instability here at home.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to Gov. Doug Ducey’s (R-Ariz.) decision to appoint Former Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) to the late Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) Senate seat, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
Gov. Doug Ducey, R-Ariz., faces an important decision in the coming days that will have national implications in the 2020 and 2022 election cycles. These elections will determine the political fate of an entire generation of Americans. The stakes could not be higher.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A recent poll commissioned by the Justice Action Network in the Commonwealth of Kentucky indicates widespread support for prison and sentencing reform. FreedomWorks partners with the Justice Action Network to support legislation to reform the criminal justice system, give former offenders a second chance, and promote public safety.
To the great disappointment of many small business owners and supporters of federalism, the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Wayfair vs. South Dakota opened the door for states to impose an internet sales tax, even on businesses that have no physical presence in their borders. Because Congress has the constitutional authority to regulate interstate commerce, it is now considering ways to address this newfound taxing authority. Congress must take this opportunity to use its power to protect small businesses from these taxes and perhaps to at least work to slow the process down while a long term solution is explored. The strength of the American economy depends on it.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In the wake of the FBI’s decision this morning to fire former Agent Peter Strzok, who was at one time a key member of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team, FreedomWorks Vice-President of Advocacy Noah Wall commented:
President Trump held a rally in Ohio over the weekend to give a last-minute boost to the final special election of 2018. Republican candidate Troy Balderson took the stage to make some remarks, but it was House speaker candidate Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who really stole the show.
