FreedomWorks' Dumpster Fire of the Month for May 2019: Medicare For All Act, S. 1129

FreedomWorks’ activist-chosen dumpster fire of the month for May 2019 is the Medicare for All Act, S. 1129, sponsored by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Not only would implementing “Medicare for All” add upwards of $32 trillion to our federal expenditures -- It would also result in, as our own Dan Savickas noted in FreedomWorks Foundation’s recently released booklet on entitlement reform, healthcare for none.

FreedomWorks’ Bill of the Month for May 2019: Death Tax Repeal Act, H.R. 218

FreedomWorks is proud to announce that our bill of the month for May 2019 is the Death Tax Repeal Act, H.R. 218, sponsored by Rep. Jason Smith (R-Mo.) and boasting an impressive 82 cosponsors. The Death Tax Repeal Act would fully repeal the estate and generation-skipping transfer taxes that wreak havoc on American families who are already suffering the loss of a loved one, often causing them to lose their generations-old family businesses because of the excessive greed of the federal government.

Debating the Path Forward for Pell Flexibility in Short-Term Programs

As the House Education and Labor Committee and the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) continue their discussions around reauthorization of the Higher Education Act (HEA), most of the public chatter in the space centers around hot-button issues, including college affordability and student debt. This means that other aspects of a potential deal on HEA reauthorization are flying under the radar.

DOJ Offers a Mixed Bag Update on First Step Act Implementation

On Monday, the Department of Justice (DOJ) put out a release outlining its intentions for and the status of the implementation of the First Step Act. Signed into law on December 21, 2018, the First Step Act is a comprehensive overhaul of the federal prison system, run by the Bureau of Prisons. Certainly, it is encouraging to see the department taking affirmative steps toward implementing the law.

Congressional Republicans Should Stop Trying to Save Obamacare

BY Sarah Anderson

This week, the Department of Justice (DOJ) recognized what Republicans in Congress have failed to: that the Affordable Care Act should not be defended. In this move, the DOJ agreed that “the district court’s judgement” — that Obamacare is unconstitutional — “should be affirmed.”

School Choice Should Loosen, Not Strengthen, Federal Grip on Education

When President Trump’s budget request for fiscal year 2020 was released, many advocates of school choice were thrilled to see the cuts recommended for the Department of Education, to the tune of $7.1 billion. For those who believe that the federal government has no place in determining education policy, a $64 billion budget for the Department of Education is certainly preferable to a $71 billion budget.

Emergency Declaration Debate Presents an Opportunity for Article I

Following the Senate’s passage yesterday of the joint resolution to disapprove of President Trump’s recent emergency declaration to use existing funds to construct a barrier along some portions of our southern border, it is clear that some in Congress are finally picking up an important message. Congress has to put a stop to and reverse course on its slow-but-steady ceding of its constitutional powers to the executive branch. On everything from trade and regulation to war and now the power of the purse, the executive branch and the president are much more powerful than was intended as outlined in Article I of the Constitution.

FreedomWorks' Dumpster Fire of the Month for March 2019: "Green New Deal" Resolution, H.Res. 109 and S.Res. 59

FreedomWorks’ activist-chosen dumpster fire of the month for March 2019 is the “Green New Deal” Resolution, H.Res. 109 and S.Res. 59, introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.). The resolution, touted by the progressive left as a “solution” to the “climate crisis,” is no more than an overt attempt to entirely upend the concept of liberty in America. By turning our economy into a socialist’s dream, the Green New Deal would ruin what we have of a free-market society here in America and put us on a fast track to collectivism.
