    Why Wisconsin Matters

    When Governor Scott Walker and the Republican legislature were elected, the state of Wisconsin was over $3.8 billion in debt. The people of Wisconsin elected them to fix the problem. They elected them to create jobs. That is exactly what they did. Last month, half of the jobs created in the United States were created in the state of Wisconsin. Half. Think about the magnitude | Read More »

    President Obama gets in touch with the little people in Twitter town hall

    … And by “little people” I mean Speaker John Boehner and NYT Columnist Nick Kristof. Speaker Boehner’s question read “After embarking on a record spending binge that’s left us deeper in debt, where are the jobs?” Obama kicked off his answer by saying “Well, obviously, John’s the Speaker of the House… he’s a Republican, so this is a slightly skewed question.” Maybe it would be | Read More »

    Make room for the new guys, Newt.

    It’s no secret that Newt Gingrich has had his eye on the White House for several Presidential cycles, and has been waiting his turn for the nomination. Thankfully, his recent flameout has pretty much eliminated his chances. However, it has been a long time coming, and it is time to remind America that Newt isn’t so much on our side. Let’s start things off with | Read More »

    Pennsylvania’s Battle for School Choice

    A long time proponent of school choice legislation across the country, FreedomWorks* has joined a large coalition of school choice advocates in Pennsylvania to push back against the teachers unions on the state’s first viable school choice legislation. Championed by Senator Tony Williams (D) and Senator Jeff Piccola (R), the bipartisan bill will start push for school choice legislation across the country, as well as help | Read More »

    Majority of Republicans Would Support a Third Party

    Talk of a third political party in the US, usually spoken out of frustration, has long caused heartburn for Republicans and has been pushed away as taboo. It seems, however, that the minority has become the majority. From a new Gallup poll, via the Hill: The number of Republicans who said that a third political party was necessary was at an all-time high since Gallup | Read More »

    White House Puts Out Feelers on the Transportation Opportunities Act

    Via The Hill: The Obama administration has floated a transportation authorization bill that would require the study and implementation of a plan to tax automobile drivers based on how many miles they drive. It’s called the Transportation Opportunities Act, which is very ironic because I’m not sure of one opportunity that this would provide for the middle class Obama seems to keen on assisting. If | Read More »

    Governor Kasich on Obama: Why doesn’t he do his job?

    Ohio Governor John Kasich recently signed controversial Senate Bill 5, which restricted the much-abused collective bargaining power of public sector unions. The bill, similar to what passed in Wisconsin, inspired a similar level of vitriol from the unions and supporters. Obama jumped into the conversation earlier this week saying “public employees should not be blamed for a financial crisis they had nothing to do with | Read More »

    Think Progress: The south deserved to be destroyed by tornados

    The south is still realizing the full extent of the damage caused by this week’s storms. Nearly 300 people are dead. The country is rallying in support of the devatated areas, and President Obama (who must have learned something from ignoring Nashville’s flood last year) is set break character to visit the very red state today. Anyone with a soul feels pain for those affected. Thousands | Read More »

    Obama gets serious… by punting policy to celebs

    President Obama enjoys presenting himself as a shining example of maturity, wisdom, and levelheaded leadership. Indeed, at yesterday’s birth certificate press conference, he told the pesky “carnival barkers” that it was time to “get serious.” Then, he boarded a plane to Chicago to film Oprah. To talk some more about getting serious, I imagine. He later put the birth certificate issue to rest once and | Read More »

    Powershift: The Birth of Environmental Justice

    The Powershift conference came to DC last weekend. Thousands of students were bussed in to discuss the perils of our climate situation – because apparently, Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi are “counting on them” to save the world… by taking off their pants and leaving earth to colonize other planets? It’s funny at first, until you realize that there were 10,000 American youth listening to | Read More »

    VIDEO: Barack Obama’s EPA Doesn’t Care About Jobs

    The EPA has admitted that they don’t even consider jobs when they do their economic analysis. No really. They don’t even think about the potential impact on unemployment. This is appalling, coming from an administration that has said over and over and over again that jobs are the top priority. To recap: White House Briefing, 1/19/2010 “The top priority is to continue to work hard | Read More »

    Nancy Pelosi: Republicans Think Women Don’t Think

    Via Twitter: You can click here to watch the entire 5:32 minute video, if you think you can make it through. Planned Parenthood is not in the business of helping women, and has a knack of constantly reminding us. We can rehash exposé after exposé, and discuss the list of horrors and deception that seems to grow with every investigation. Most of us have seen | Read More »

    Flashback Video: Instead of budgeting, Congress is…

    Steny Hoyer once said that the most basic responsibility of governing was to enact a budget. Which is why in the past two years, when Democrats could have done anything they wanted to (and in many cases did), they could not pass one? Democrats have done a good job pretending that the shut down is all because the Republicans won’t play around and are tossing out | Read More »

    The Left’s “Tea Party Moment”?

    The unions have long been unparalleled in their ability to organize and get the vote out during election time. The Tea Party has provided them with a new challenge, and they’re rising to the occasion as best they know how: Astroturfing. They believe, according to Alexander Bolton in The Hill, that their “Tea Party” moment has come. The first question that should be asked is | Read More »

    Union Thuggery Descends On FreedomWorks

    Today, union thugs descended on the FreedomWorks office. It was the middle of the day, and there was some excitement outside as all the buses pulled up and people started to fill the courtyard. We decided to go out and show our support for freedom. Intern Steve was quickly suited up. We wandered around talking to people, and saw the buses lined up on the | Read More »
