The Free Market v. Big Government

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) introduced, the Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act (S. 670) which has been referred to the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions. On the surface this bill is being presented as consumer friendly, but when Sen. Warren introduces legislation that is allegedly opening up the market to lower the cost for consumers and increase competition, it is suspect to say the least.

Trump Administration and Congress Are Changing the Regulatory Mindset

Recent headlines out of Washington paint a depressing picture. Of course, this isn't anything new, just different names and reversed roles. However there is something different going on these days and Americans ought to look beyond the salacious headlines. If they do, they'll see swamp water beginning to swirl down the drain, as the Trump administration and Congress are making historic progress against decades of job-killing regulations.

Don’t Trap The Poor In Payouts

There is a strong moral case for welfare reform. Welfare binds the poor with the soft chains of good intentions. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that there are 5.7 million job openings, but also reports that there are 7.1 million unemployed in our country. A compassionate response to the unemployed is not meager payouts every month to keep them alive. Genuine compassion means focusing on getting every level of government out of the way and creating conditions in which these 7.1 million unemployed individuals can get into those 5.7 million job openings, take pride in their work, help others by being productive citizens, and flourish.

How the Treasury Will Address the Debt Ceiling

As part of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 that was enacted in November of that year, the debt ceiling was suspended until March 15, 2017. As of March 16, 2017, the debt ceiling is now back in place, requiring Congress to take action to raise it by some time in Fall (likely October or November).

Dark Days in Connecticut

Last month, Gov. Dannel Malloy (D-Conn.) announced that he will not seek, and he will not accept, the nomination of his party for another term as governor. This is not all that surprising as he sits at at a 66 percent disapproval rating, tying him for the second highest disapproval rating of any governor.

Washington Implements Right to Try

On May 5, 2017, Gov. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) signed SB 5035, making Washington the 35th Right to Try state. The Right to Try law allows drugs that have passed the initial phase of FDA testing to be tried by various individuals despite the fact the drug has not yet gone through the lengthy process of full approval by the agency.

Washington, D.C.'s Unaffordable Childcare Regulation Highlights National Licensing Problem

The saying, "It's the thought that counts," is a lame excuse when it comes to bad gifts and an even worse way to justify public policy. Lawmakers and bureaucrats continuously impose new regulations that often sound good. Yet policymakers too often fail to consider obvious economic ripple-effects, many of which hit hard-working Americans like tsunamis. There is no better example than occupational licensing standards, such as the District of Columbia's new requirement that all childcare workers obtain a four-year degree.

John Oliver and Title II: A Bad Combination

The internet has been buzzing about late-night talk show comedian John Oliver’s resurgence of interest in the regulations on internet broadband providers, about which he had an extended monologue on his show this week. But his misguided call-to-action has already had repercussions, including cyber-attacks on the FCC’s website, ruining the ability for them to receive comments on what the public thinks of the ”Restoring Internet Freedom” proposal presented by Ajit Pai.
