4 Graphs Bernanke Doesn’t Want You to See

We wrote up a “QE3 Fact Sheet” after Ben Bernanke’s announcement on monetary policy Thursday. Left-wing apologists for the central bank came out in full swing, advocating for the money injection as a beacon of hope.

Bernanke Announces QE3: Here’s Your Fact Sheet!

Chairman Ben Bernanke made two announcements Thursday about monetary policy: (1) the Federal Reserve will begin its third round of quantitative easing, and (2) it will maintain extremely low interest rates of 0 to 1/4 percent until at least mid-2015. These banking actions may sound like gobbledygook, but their effects on our country’s currency are drastically serious. Let’s translate a few things into layman’s terms. “QE3” — what’s this mean?

The Tax That Nobody is Talking About (Except Ron Paul)

Consequently, Republican candidates are proposing alternative solutions to the economic woes the country currently faces. One specific aspect of these solutions concerns tax policy.

Tell your Representatives to Cosponsor the Capital Gains Inflation Relief Act of 2011

Dear FreedomWorks member, As one of our million-plus FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to cosponsor H.R. 2945, the Capital Gains Inflation Relief Act of 2011. Introduced by Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), the bill would index the capital gains tax to inflation. By eliminating a tax on inflation, millions of Americans would have more money in their pocket. The Capital Gains Inflation Relief Act would stimulate economic growth and job creation.
