WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to this morning’s report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis that U.S. GDP grew 3.2% in Q1 2019, compared to an expected 2.1%, John Tamny, FreedomWorks Director of the Center for Economic Freedom, commented:
When President Trump’s budget request for fiscal year 2020 was released, many advocates of school choice were thrilled to see the cuts recommended for the Department of Education, to the tune of $7.1 billion. For those who believe that the federal government has no place in determining education policy, a $64 billion budget for the Department of Education is certainly preferable to a $71 billion budget.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to President Trump’s offer to Stephen Moore, FreedomWorks Senior Economic Contributor, to join the Federal Reserve Board, FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon, commented:
Following the Senate’s passage yesterday of the joint resolution to disapprove of President Trump’s recent emergency declaration to use existing funds to construct a barrier along some portions of our southern border, it is clear that some in Congress are finally picking up an important message. Congress has to put a stop to and reverse course on its slow-but-steady ceding of its constitutional powers to the executive branch. On everything from trade and regulation to war and now the power of the purse, the executive branch and the president are much more powerful than was intended as outlined in Article I of the Constitution.
