Rand Paul Becomes the Sixth Candidate to Confirm for the Rising Tide Summit

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) confirmed his participation for the Rising Tide Summit, hosted by FreedomWorks, and Congressman Rod Blum (R-IA-1), on Saturday, December 5 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The summit will allow grassroots activists to engage presidential candidates on their plans to grow the economy. Following Senator Paul’s acceptance of the invitation to the Rising Tide Summit, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented: “Rand Paul has proposed an ambitious, pro-growth tax plan – a hybrid of a flat tax and a national retail sales tax – and he brings an important dynamic to the Rising Tide Summit. With six presidential candidates now confirmed, we urge remaining campaigns to join the event so the grassroots can vet their plans to get America’s economy moving again.” Dr. Ben Carson, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), former Hewlett-Packard CEO … Read entire article »

Tell Congress: Support Disapproval Resolutions to Halt Devastating EPA Regulations

As one of our more than 6.9 million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your congressman and senators today and ask them to support the resolutions disapproving of the EPA’s new power plant regulations, H.J.Res. 71 & 72, and S.J.Res. 23 & 24, and to co-sponsor the resolutions if they have not already done so. The EPA rules in question would impose draconian changes on the U.S. energy sector. In addition to enforcing regulatory cap-and-trade requirements and renewable energy mandates on existing power plants, these rules would also set unreasonable CO2 standards for new coal-fired power plants; standards which even existing plants wouldn’t be able to comply with. As a result, these regulations would essentially act as a ban on the construction of new coal-fired plants, because there would … Read entire article »

Tennessee Activists Gathering

On Tuesday, September 22, Allen Page and I were pleased to join the Tennessee Tea Party for their monthly meeting. The meeting was held at 6:30 at the Legion of Foreign Wars Hall in Mountain City, TN. Chairman Ray Comeaux called the meeting to order and discussed current business. Allen hosted a FreedomWorks information table. Group member, Kevin Leukhardt introduced me to the group. We had a wonderful discussion about FreedomWorks: who we are, what we do, and how we believe that “Government goes to those who show up”! Members were especially interested in our support of Congressman Mark Meadow’s petition to “Fire John Boehner”, our support for school choice, and our opposition to ObamaCare and Common Core. Our justice reform work was of … Read entire article »

The Pro-Freedom Legacy of Ludwig von Mises

September 29th marks the 134th birthday of Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973), one of the most visionary and revolutionary economists in history. He won no Nobel Prizes, and he spent much of his life unappreciated, teaching in obscurity, but the work he left behind has served as the intellectual bedrock for libertarian economic and political theorists of the last half century. The ideas he pioneered are the ones upon which FreedomWorks was found, so on the anniversary of his birth, it’s worth taking a moment to remember his contributions to the history of freedom. Human Action Among the simple and most profound of Mises’ teachings was the seemingly obvious realization that economics is the science of human action. People act to render their situations more satisfactory. Once they are satisfied, they stop acting. … Read entire article »

An Early Glimpse into HillaryCare 2.0

Over twenty years after the spectacular failure of “HillaryCare”, Hillary Clinton is back in the health care debate. The collection of modest proposals she has made recently gives us a glimpse into her vision for “HillaryCare, 2.0”. With ObamaCare already taking a huge step towards accomplishing her goal of total government control of health care, Hillary’s new, more measured approach is just to keep nudging current policies further in that direction. A brief summary of what she has proposed thus far: Requiring insurers to cover more basic costs before deductibles kick in. This includes allowing patients three fully-covered sick visits to their doctor. Creating a new tax credit to cover deductibles for patients who already have health insurance (up to $2,500 for individuals, $5,000 for families, applied to costs above 5% of … Read entire article »

Government Shutdown: How Did We Get Here?

We’re just days away from the expiration of funding for the federal government running dry, and that event that is spoken about only in hushed tones of dread by the Washington establishment: a government shutdown. For those who regard the federal government as the provider of all that is good and noble in the world, whose Life-of-Julia worldviews require state intervention in all activities great and small, this represents an unthinkable tragedy. The rest of us tend not to really notice, except when the Feds go out of their way to prevent World War II veterans from visiting their own, open air memorial. Of course, the shutdown can be averted, and there’s a decent chance it will be. Congress is scrambling to cobble together a stopgap funding bill that will push … Read entire article »
