TACKLING THE DC SPENDING PROBLEM

TACKLING THE DC SPENDING PROBLEM

Mar 18, 2014

One evening 20 years ago, my husband and I dreamed of starting our own business.  Through hard work, dedication, and commitment, we were able to grow a successful business that created jobs in our community.  Unfortunately, over the last several years, our federal government has created an environment that would make starting that business nearly [...]

An Immigrant’s view of the economy and our history: Niall Ferguson

Jun 20, 2013

I had the opportunity to talk to Niall Ferguson the other day.  He’s a Brit who has come to America to talk about Economic history.  He’s a Harvard professor that tells the truth and our history and our economy and there is standing room only to get into his classes.  We’ve talked so much about [...]

Student Loan Follies

Jun 18, 2013

There are a lot of “follies” going on in government right now.  Maybe I’ve been beat up fighting these waste issues, I’ve lost my sense of humor on the issue.
I got an email from Move On Civic Action yesterday.  Actually, a friend forwarded it to me with the note, “I can’t do this, but maybe [...]

Debbie Dooley: Show me the Money

Jun 18, 2013

That’s what I say to those who claim the Plant Vogtle construction projects in Augusta, Georgia will result in lower-cost electricity for Georgia ratepayers over the next few decades.  Let me be clear that I support all forms of energy production for our future – from nuclear, coal, natural gas, biomass, solar and wind.
Unfortunately, they [...]

Ryan and Graves: House should pass appropriations bills

Jun 17, 2013

In The Hill today:
This month, the House is writing appropriations bills for fiscal 2014. And it’s a crucial step. The budget resolution House Republicans passed in March outlined our vision for the country; it enunciated our principles. But these appropriations bills will put our principles into action. If we pass them, we’ll cut spending the [...]

Randy Evans: Employers should be concerned with DOL’s proposed rules

Jun 17, 2013

As the investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s illegal targeting of conservative groups continues to expand, questions are starting to emerge regarding whether such targeting is limited to the IRS. Of course, the full story regarding the IRS is far from being told, with key people asserting the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and others [...]

GM Bailout to cost taxpayers $10B

Jun 17, 2013

For those of you aren’t familiar, in 2011 the Treasury sold its remaining shares of Chrysler to Fiat – at a loss of $1.34 billion.  However, they claimed the sale was “further evidence of the success of the Administration’s actions to assist the US auto industry.”  I’m not sure about you, but I’m willing to [...]

A Dangerous Game: Obama, Taxes and You

Jun 17, 2013

Let’s play a game – which really is not a game at all since you and I have no chance of winning. Below are some of the taxes that will be imposed as part of the implementation of Obamacare. Your part in this “game” is to see how many either directly or indirectly impact you [...]

Tom Price introduces patient centered health care

Jun 17, 2013

There have been more that 30 alternatives to Obamacare since the passage of the so-called “Affordable” Heathcare Act was passed.  There were many alternatives presented during the debate.  The then Democrat controlled House and Senate didn’t want debate, and they still don’t. Congressman Price has always led the pack on this.
From Congressman Price’s office:
Congressman Tom [...]

Ron Hart: Ireland a canary in coal mine of entrepreneurism

Jun 17, 2013

During a trip to Ireland, one thing stood out to me, which explains most of Europe’s high unemployment and slow economic growth: a lack of entrepreneurial spirit. It has led to economic malaise, and it has spread to the United States.
Our bus driver in Ireland was an affable, 50-ish gentleman. He had worked union jobs [...]

This is your IRS

Jun 17, 2013

From the folks at BankruptingAmerica.org and ThePublicNotice.org:
SHOT: Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NY) Says IRS Needs More Funding: “The IRS simply cannot sustain itself with this overall funding level.  Although I am certain that some would view this as a good step, I disagree.  There is no clearer way to promote more scandals than by cutting funding …” (Rep. Jose Serrano, [...]

The Fourth Scandal

Jun 17, 2013

It has been a scandal-plagued month for the Obama Administration.  First, new details emerged about the Benghazi cover up.  Then there were back-to-back revelations that the IRS was targeting conservative groups and the Justice Department was tapping the phones of reporters.
Now a fourth: Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has been shaking down the [...]

Even Barney Frank thinks we’ve gone too far? A Georgian’s Primer

Jun 9, 2013

When I read Tim Lee’s op-ed in Forbes.com yesterday, I was reminded that both of Georgia’s Senators supported the Durbin Amendment when even the uber-liberal former Congressman Barney Frank admitted that it was a disaster that harmed consumers. We shouldn’t have to ask Georgia Senators to move to the right of Barney Frank or commit to fix [...]
