WHO Should Care About Smokers

Although the United Nations (UN) and their subsidiary, the World Health Organization (WHO), were created to be conduits of best practices and policies internationally, their approach to the tobacco industry is counterproductive. Rather than pursue a path of harm reduction, that acknowledges the existing risk of tobacco use and tries to mitigate them within existing realities, both the UN and WHO have prevented any engagement with the tobacco industry. The UN should take a page from the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) successful tobacco playbook and engage with tobacco industry participants.

Key Vote No: H.R. 1256

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, including many in your state, I urge you to vote “No” on H.R. 1256: the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act.  This legislation marks a radical increase in power for the Food and Drug Administration, additional growth of government, and a significant intrusion by government into the daily lives and decisions of its citizens.

Key Vote No: Thrift Savings Plan Legislation Being Considered Under Suspension of the Rules

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) legislation being considered this week under suspension of House rules.  This legislation could take the form of one bill or two, but in either case the intent is to force all federal employees into the TSP in order to pay for costs associated with H.R. 1256, the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act that Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA-30) is championing.
