Always in Style: Economic Freedom for All

New businesses, thriving communities and citizens who can pursue their American dream. These are the effects of economic freedom. President Ronald Reagan not only understood this timeless principle – he believed in it and embraced it.   "We who live in free market societies believe that growth, prosperity and ultimately human fulfillment, are created from the bottom up, not the government down. Only when the human spirit is allowed to invent and create, only when individuals are given a personal stake in deciding economic policies and benefiting from their success – only then can societies remain economically alive, dynamic, progressive, ...

Filibustering for Freedom

Yesterday, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) led a nearly 13-hour “talking filibuster.” Senator Paul’s objective was to block President Obama’s nominee to head the CIA – John Brennan, the man who formerly directed the President’s drone warfare program. According to the Senator, he was very concerned about a letter he received from Attorney General Eric Holder that appears to essentially ask Americans to trust whoever is President to make the right decisions on drone attacks on citizens inside the nation. Senator Paul’s stand was the first such filibuster since Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) spoke for over eight hours in 2010. While it lasted ...

Eighteen days from now, over 100 million Americans will vote for their candidate of choice for President of the United States, Representative to the House of Representatives, and local and state officials.

The US Navy: Defending Our Freedom And … Building Our Refineries?

In the past few weeks we’ve learned that the government spent $9 billion to create 910 green-energy jobs; the Navy bought 450,000 gallons of biofuels for $26 a gallon; and now according to Reuters, “The Pentagon is pushing ahead with a $420 million effort to build refineries to make competitively priced biofuels.” And this from the same federal government where the U.S. Post Office has been losing $42.3 million a day! What could possibly go wrong? Recent news stories have pointed to concerns, mostly from Republicans, about the Navy’s decision to sink $12 million in biofuels, at $26 per gallon, to create a 50-50 petroleum/bi...

Letter to House Republicans: Present a Balanced Budget

Dear House Republicans, President Obama recently proposed a new budget that never balances -- not in ten years, not in twenty, not ever. But at least he proposed one, in contrast to Senate Democrats. Nonetheless, and especially in light of the unprecedented accumulation of debt by this administration, it reflects a stunning abdication of fiscal responsibility. In short, it is completely unserious. Now you have the opportunity to produce a serious budget of your own, but it must sharply contrast with the Obama budget.  It will be difficult for President Obama's opponent to set up such a stark contrast if they have to defend a budget that is not ...

Conservatives to GOP: Americans Expect Republicans in Congress to Fight for the Conservative Agenda

Election 2014: A Conservative Victory November 5, 2014 Washington, D.C. The American people sent an unmistakable message to Washington: Voters expect Republicans in Congress to listen and fight for the conservative agenda they ran on. - Every single newly elected Republican Senator ran on the full repeal of Obamacare. In most competitive races it was the top issue. Over 40,000 ads against Obamacare were run on behalf of winning candidates. The Republican House and Senate must now keep those campaign promises and use reconciliation to send a bill repealing Obamacare to the President. - All but one of the newly elected Republican Senators ...

HEALTHCARE: How Much Will Obamacare Cost? Bet on 'More Than Expected' “As the nation prepares for the second enrollment period under The Affordable Care Act in November, there is officially no way of figuring out what Obamacare is going to do to federal deficits compared to the estimates used to push the program through Congress. Back in 2009, it was really important to President Obama that people understand he would not "sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits—either now or in the future. Period." He sold the plan as costing about $938 billion in its first decade of operation (2010 through 2019) but saving about $143 billion overall ...

The Reagan Agenda is Back in Business

It may not be morning in America quite yet, but I think we can see rosy-fingered dawn peeking over the horizon. Last month, Ted Cruz stepped up. Last week, Rand Paul stepped up. Last Monday, Marco Rubio stepped up. Their arrival may not be the second coming of Ronald Reagan, but it’s the second coming of the Reagan coalition. Does anybody make the case for traditional values more cogently than Ted Cruz? Does anybody confront overweening government more consistently than Rand Paul? Does anybody summon the themes of American patriotism more evocatively than Marco Rubio? Family values. Limited government. American exceptionalism. Those are the ...

HEALTHCARE: 27.49% of Everyone's Tax Bill Is Spent on Health Care Share of Each Taxpayer Dollar Spent on Health Care Up 22 Percent Since 2012. “Every year since 2011, the White House has used tax time to post a "Federal Taxpayer Receipt" showing taxpayers how their federal tax dollars are being spent. President Obama introduced the concept in his 2011 State of the Union address, and Wednesday the White House posted the fifth installment so taxpayers can see how "tax dollars are being spent on priorities like education, veterans benefits, and health care."  While users can punch in their own tax liability and see dollar amounts assigned to each ...
