Retailers Seek a Wealth Transfer From the Banks

On Friday, March 21, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia handed retailers a considerable setback in their ongoing war against banks over price controls on interchange fees-the fees charged to retailers when they accept debit cards as payment. The court's decision is the latest salvo in the wake of the Durbin Amendment, which was hurriedly and quietly added to the Dodd-Frank financial services reform legislation of 2010. The amendment mandated that the Federal Reserve Board establish price caps for debit card interchange fees. Retailers claimed the caps were necessary to protect consumers, but the reality of the Durbin Amendment has been a direct transfer of resources from banks to retailers, with consumers facing higher costs as collateral damage.

Educating Activists on the Role of the Judiciary

FreedomWorks Foundation has launched a new educational program to educate our activists on the role of the judiciary and its important check on legislative and executive branch power. In addition to the new issue page and new courses for FreedomWorks University, we are including an activist education program to highlight this important issue. Recently FreedomWorks Foundation sponsored a series of talks in South Carolina and Florida that examined the role of the judiciary and the dangers of a judicial branch that fails to check the power of the other branches of government.

President Obama is Standing on Standing

The U.S. Constitution attempted to create a blueprint for government that includes three co-equal branches of government: the executive branch, the legislative branch, and the judiciary. While the legislature enacts laws and the executive branch implements those laws, the judiciary has the important role of checking any overreach by both the executive and legislative branches. These checks and balances are what protected the new constitutional republic from the tyranny of majority rule.

"The passing of the Affordable Care Act stands as one of the largest expansions of the unconstitutional administrative state in the country\u2019s history. Since the Progressive Era, the United States has been steadily drifting away from the founding-era principles of republicanism, separation of powers, and respect for the rule of law and towards an ever-expanding and overreaching government no longer abiding by its constitutional limits. Congress has repeatedly delegated its legislative authority to independent agencies and departments removed from the political process, while the judicial branch looks the other way."

ObamaCare and the Ever-Expanding Administrative State

The passing of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), commonly referred to as ObamaCare, stands as one of the largest expansions of the unconstitutional administrative state in the country’s history. Since the Progressive Era, the United States has been steadily drifting away from the founding-era principles of republicanism, separation of powers, and respect for the rule of law and towards an ever-expanding and overreaching government no longer abiding by its constitutional limits. Congress has repeatedly delegated its legislative authority to independent agencies and departments removed from the political process, while the judicial branch looks the other way.

Supreme Court Hears Oral Arguments on Greenhouse Gases

A critical case was argued before the U.S. Supreme Court late February that has major implications for the electric utility industry and future efforts by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to curb greenhouse gas emissions. The case is called Utility Air Regulatory Group v. EPA and it will determine whether or not the EPA acted legally when it granted itself the authority to regulate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from stationary emitters such as power plants.
