Time for a Shutdown Reality Check

BY Adam Brandon

Mark Twain once commented “the reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” This quote should come to mind whenever we hear the apocalyptic forecasts associated with the partial shutdown. Here’s a reality check: the partial shutdown is not nearly as bad as Democrats and pundits are making it out to be. The electricity and water still work and our roads are still paved. From what I can tell, my neighborhood doesn’t look like a scene out of “Mad Max.”

Pelosi's Sabotage of the State of the Union Gives Trump an Opportunity to Return to Jefferson's Precedent

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made some news on Wednesday when she sent a letter to President Donald Trump urging a postponement of the State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress on January 29. Although she stopped short of disinviting him, Speaker Pelosi cited security concerns related to the government shutdown as the reason.

Reinstating SALT Would Strike At the Heart of the 10th Amendment

BY Daniel Savickas

As the 116th Congress gets settled in, Nancy Pelosi and fellow House Democrats are adjusting to their new reality of being back in the majority. With that comes an assessment of their policy priorities for the next two years. Among other initiatives, one of their targets appears to be the reinstatement of the state and local tax (SALT) deductions that were eliminated in the tax cuts package from 2017. A bill has already been introduced by Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.).

Key Vote NO on the Supplemental Appropriations Act, H.R. 268

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote NO on the Supplemental Appropriations Act, H.R. 268. The legislation would spend another $12.1 billion for disaster relief for areas affected by Hurricane Florence, Hurricane Michael, wildfires, and other recent natural disasters without any offsets for the new spending.

In Any Congress, Principles Must Come Before Party

Limited government conservatives remain disgruntled in Congress, both when in the majority and when in the minority. Republicans campaign on shrinking government, lowering taxes, embracing free markets, and upholding the constitution. But members who actually hold themselves to these promises once in Congress exist only in small pockets.

House Democrats' PAYGO Rule Won't Restrain Spending

Let’s just get something out of the way. The so-called “pay-as-you-go” rule that House Democrats have touted as one of the reforms they’ve implemented for the 116th Congress is meaningless. Despite the rule, the House will pass legislation that increases the budget deficit, leaving more debt for taxpayers.

The 'Green New Deal' Is the Worst Thing of All for Green

BY Jason Pye

Democrats in Congress who claim an environmental conscience are pushing a so-called “Green New Deal” meant to fundamentally shift America’s focus to renewable energy sources in the hope of addressing anthropogenic climate change. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has become the face of the effort, with calls for a top income tax rate of 70 percent to finance the program. The excessive intervention Rep. Ocasio-Cortez calls for would be crippling for the environment, simply because it would slow the economic growth that makes green-energy advances possible to begin with.

Support the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, H.R. 24

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and urge them to cosponsor the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, H.R. 24, if he or she hasn’t already done so. Introduced by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), the Federal Reserve Transparency Act would require a full audit of the Federal Reserve by the Government Accountability Office.
