The FIRST STEP Act: Reducing Recidivism Through ID Clarification

Last week, the FIRST STEP Act, federal prison reform legislation sponsored by Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), sailed through the House by a vote of 360-59. The bill would create a risk and needs assessment in federal prisons to guide the implementation of incentivised recidivism-reduction programming for prisoners. More broadly, the legislation is focused on reducing recidivism by aiding reentry into society in multiple ways and implements other measures that contribute to this goal outside of the new programming provisions.

FreedomWorks Applauds Proposed Rescissions Package

Washington, D.C.- Today, President Trump transmitted to Congress his proposal to rescind $15.4 billion in unobligated budget authorities from past years, as allowed for under the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974.

FreedomWorks: A Balanced Budget Amendment is Nothing More than a “Show Vote”

Washington, D.C.- Shortly after passing a massive $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill that blew through spending caps by nearly $300 billion and set the federal government on a trajectory to trillion-dollar deficits as early as 2020, the House is voting on a balanced budget amendment.

Latest CBO Report Shows Washington's Addiction to Spending Is Out of Control

On Monday, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its semiannual report on federal spending. The report, The Budget and Economic Outlook: 2018 to 2028, looks at trends in federal spending, budget deficits, and the share of the national debt held by the public. If one is looking at the report through the lens of fiscal conservatism, the picture is ominous to say the least.

Medicaid Match Rates Incentivize Waste

As the mandatory piece of federal expenditures consumes an ever-increasing percentage of the overall federal budget, Medicaid spending continues to rise within this mandatory piece. Many factors have contributed to skyrocketing Medicaid expenditures by the federal government, but much of this has not been to the benefit of those that Medicaid was enacted to help.

With Yemen Vote, Senate Republicans Overwhelmingly Deny the Constitution

Republicans’ consistent platform in elections is an adherence to the Constitution, rule of law, and fiscal responsibility. Two weeks ago, those same Republicans in the Senate allowed both of these to more than fall by the wayside. One might point initially at hearing this to the passage of the omnibus spending bill, which -- make no mistake -- did throw these principles under the bus.
