Most People Saved or Paid Down Debt With Their CARES Act Stimulus Check

In the third season of The West Wing, the personal aide to the President, Charlie Young, has a conversation with White House Chief of Staff Leo McGarry about a stimulus payment he received. McGarry asks, “Did you spend it?” Charlie says, “I paid my VISA bill.” Leo replied, “We would have preferred it if you'd ate in a restaurant or traveled.” Later, when discussing the issue again, President Josiah Barlet jokingly asks Charlie, “A trip to Banana Republic would have killed you?”

History Shows Direct Assistance Won't Boost Consumption

The state of the economy is on everyone’s mind due to the COVID-19 and the more frequent practice of social distancing. People are staying at home due to the virus, which will have a negative impact on consumption. On Tuesday, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said that the administration is “looking at sending checks to Americans immediately.” The idea is similar in approach to proposals from Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Mitt Romney (R-Utah).

Quoth the Keynesians "Nevermore"

         Many can recall the short story The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allen Poe, in which Prince Prospero attempts to avoid the plague that is ravaging the country side by barricading himself and a number of his closest friends in his abbey.  However, despite Prince Prospero’s best efforts he and his friends all fall victim to the plague.

Key Vote "No" H.R. 1: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote NO on H.R. 1: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.  The compromises behind closed doors this week have made the bill no less acceptable to anyone who values fiscal responsibility and loves freedom. It is highly irresponsible of Congress to rush through a spending bill of this tremendous magnitude without taking the time to fully consider all its parts and give the public time for input.  In fact, the bill, which weighs in at over 1,000 pages, was only made available to Congress at 11 p.m. last night.  This is hardly the new era of transparency and openness promised by the new administration and provides plenty of cover for legislators to slip in their favorite pork projects.

Key Vote "YES" DeMint Jobs Plan: Amendment #168

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “Yes” on Senator Jim DeMint’s Job’s Plan, Amendment #168.  This amendment is an alternative to H.R. 1 and would create nearly 18 million new jobs in ten years without the wasteful spending and debt that comprises the current stimulus plan recently passed by the House. The DeMint Jobs Plan provides for real, long term growth in addition to immediately relieving the tax burden for citizens nationwide.  The two step plan is simple, and transparent.
