Key Vote on Senate Amendments to the USA FREEDOM Reauthorization Act, H.R. 6172

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your Senators and ask them to vote YES on civil liberties reform amendments (Lee-Leahy/Paul/Daines-Wyden) to the USA Freedom Reauthorization Act, H.R. 6172, and to vote NO on amendments that would substantially weaken these reforms (McConnell). The underlying bill, H.R. 6172, would reauthorize portions of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that have been expired since March 15th of this year.

Universal Voting by Mail: Ripe for Voter Fraud

BY Parissa Sedghi

Amid coronavirus concerns, political leaders from both sides of the aisle are weighing their states’ options for mail-in voting for the 2020 presidential elections. Advocates for mail-in voting argue that it will be impossible to practice social distancing when voting in person, and thus to protect public health, mail-in-voting is a necessity. This is mostly a politically driven ploy.

Contact Tracing: Strict Guidelines Are Needed to Prevent a Civil Liberties Nightmare

As both the federal and states’ governments wrestle with what policies to use in addressing the coronavirus outbreak moving into the summer and beyond, one potential solution that has been touted as a key component of getting life here back to something like normal is “contact tracing.” In particular, governments and tech companies alike have become interested in digital solutions to track the spread of the virus in order to better contain it. However, depending upon how it is done, there are a number of concerns with how contact tracing - whether done in person or digitally - interacts with our basic rights to due process and civil liberties.

Democrats' Plans for More Spending Could Mean a Lost Decade for America

House and Senate Democrats are preparing to release another very costly legislative response to COVID-19. No cost estimate is available quite yet, but we know that it’s likely to rival the $2.3 trillion cost of the Phase III bill, the CARES Act, which passed Congress in March. Although all the details of the Democrats’ legislation haven’t been released, it will likely include $1 trillion in funding for state and local governments, bailouts for pension funds and the U.S. Postal Service, expansion of food stamps and the earned income tax credit, universal basic income, and an “essential worker bill of rights.”

We Don't Have to Put Up With This Escheat

Amidst the coronavirus crisis, there are two storylines - aside from the havoc the virus itself has wrought - that seem to stand out. The first is that the social distancing requirements and subsequent economic lockdowns have made it far more difficult for Americans to save their hard-earned money. The second is that Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) has suddenly become America’s sweetheart.

Faces of the American Freedom Initiative's National Pardon Project: Crystal Munoz

FreedomWorks recently announced the launch of the American Freedom Initiative (AFI), a collaboration headed by former acting U.S. Attorney General Matt Whitaker. This project aims to help relieve injustices committed against Americans under the criminal justice system and the regulatory state. As part of this project, we will shine a spotlight on some of the individuals the AFI has identified under its National Pardon Project as being particularly hard hit by unjustly harsh criminal sentences for non-violent crimes.

Support the American Healthshare Plans Act, H.R. 6712 and S. 3610

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and senators ask them to cosponsor the American Healthshare Plans Act, H.R. 6712 and S. 3610, introduced in the House by Rep. John Curtis (R-Utah) and in the Senate by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). This bill would allow non-employer membership organizations to offer health insurance to individuals, including across state lines, opening up a much-needed alternate path to coverage.
