Can Money Buy a 36-Year Incumbent?

By Russ Walker, 10/14/11

Earlier this year, FreedomWorks members and Tea Party activists from Utah called us and emailed us at our headquarters with one unified message: help us organize to convince Senator Orrin Hatch, a 36-year incumbent RINO, to finally retire.

After all, when Hatch challenged sitting Senator Frank Moss in 1976, Hatch himself questioned, "What do you call a senator who's served in office for 18 years? You call him home."

Hatch rakes in more campaign cash; only a fraction from Utah

By , 10/12/11

The campaign of Sen. Orrin Hatch once again flexed its muscles in a bid to intimidate potential challenge from within the Republican Party.

His latest campaign finance report, released Wednesday, shows he collected $1.6 million in the past three months, breaking his own record for the most a Utah candidate has ever raised in a single quarter. He now has about $4 million in available funds as he seeks a seventh term in office in 2012.

White House Visitor Log Confirms What We Already Knew

By Tabitha Hale, 10/11/11

Many health care policy analysts have made the comparison between Romneycare and Obamacare. The two government-run health care plans are strikingly similar, right down to the individual mandate.

Dewhurst's "thank you" to Obama

By , 10/11/11

On the same day Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst unveiled a record fundraising quarter in Texas, FreedomWorks puts out a 45-second video showing the Senate candidate thanking the Obama administration for stimulus funds in 2009.

To be fair, he's pushed into it by the questioners on the PBS program after explaining the state's $4 billion deficit.

"I did say thank you to his staff," Dewhurst finally replies at the end of the exchange.

Herman Cain's "999 Plan": The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

So what about Herman Cain's 999 tax plan? 

Turns out it has some very good aspects -- and some others, not so good. 

I'd give it two rousing cheers and one bronx cheer. 

The plan is called "9, 9, 9" because it would replace today's complicated and economically burdensome federal tax system with a simple, three-part system, consisting of a 9% flat tax on individuals, a 9% flat tax on businesses, and a 9% national retail sales tax.* That's it.**
