Grading Our Governors: A Report Card on Reopening States' Economies

Our friends at FreedomWorks and the Committee to Unleash Prosperity yesterday announced the publication of their new report, Grading Our Governors: A Report Card on Reopening States' Economies.

Civil Disobedience Against Unconstitutional Lockdowns Spreading

Business owners and citizens wishing to exercise their constitutional rights have begun to actively defy the arbitrary and capricious lockdown orders imposed mostly by Democrat governors, city and county officials.

Others, such as California fitness center owner Sean Covell, are readying legal challenges should the state attempt to continue to enforce its unconstitutional orders.

How Democrats Ignored Science To Kill Thousands Of Senior Citizens

New York, California, New Jersey and other liberal states instituted rules that forced nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients. The next time Democrats claim to be “the Party of science” we hope someone asks them if they believe in the germ theory of disease and if so, why their leading governors sent thousands of coronavirus-infected people to spread those germs to elderly nursing home patients, killing more than 10,000 of them.

Please Mr. President Not Another Infrastructure Spending Bill

What’s needed now is not a new gravy train for unions, Democrat state and local governments and the various potential beneficiaries of government largess who are already deploying their lobbyists to Capitol Hill.

Stop The IRS From Discriminating Against Conservatives

New proposed IRS regulations would restrict any criticism of an incumbent federal, state, or local politician within 30 days of a primary or 60 days of a general election and effectively require groups to remove any reference to politicians from their websites during these windows.
