Orrin and friends

Et tu, Orrin?

Coffee With Senator Sherrod Brown

By Tabitha Hale, 11/17/11

Some of Senator Sherrod Brown's (D-OH) constituents came to visit with him in his office today. They asked him tough questions about infrastructure spending, raising taxes, and adding to the debt. 

"We dominated the conversation," said Ed Bell of Cincinnatti. "We felt like he didn't have a single question like what he was used to, a friendly softball. They were all hard fastballs coming in, burnin'. It was great."

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 , 10/11/11

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. As much distance as Romney has tried to put between the two plans, most Americans aren't buying it. Today, the White House has confirmed that the White House consulted Romney officials while creating Obamacare.

The Next Great Conservative Hope

By Matt Kibbe, 10/11/11

Back on June, FreedomWorks PAC became the first national organization to recognize and endorse Ted Cruz as the true fiscal conservative in the Republican Texas Senate primary to replace retiring Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson. 

Despite a crowded field of primary contenders, our decision was followed by endorsements from some of our strongest limited government champions in the U.S. Senate:

Dewhurst's "thank you" to Obama

By , 10/10/11

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

By Dean Clancy, 10/07/11

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.**

A Letter from FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe

By Matt Kibbe, 09/22/11

If the U.S. government were a Fortune 100 company, it would be ripe for a hostile takeover.

The company books are awash in red ink with a $1.4 trillion operating deficit and almost $15 trillion in debt, with over $110 trillion in hidden pension liabilities kept off the books. Major investment initiatives designed to stem job layoffs, like a $786 billion investment in “stimulus” was recently revealed as “not shovel ready after all.” Even more alarming, the CEO’s signature initiative to “bend the health care cost curve” has been exposed as actuarially unsound, been summarily rejected by the majority of health plan participants, and deemed unconstitutional by a federal appellate court.

PODCAST: How much trouble is Obama in?

By Tabitha Hale, 09/21/11

Obama’s numbers are in free fall. His favorability and approval ratings are dropping quickly, and the GOP candidates are likely feeling more and more confident about their chances.

How bad are things for Obama? Not bad enough that we can stop working to get the best candidate in this cycle elected. Tune in to listen to Michael Duncan and I tear about the numbers state by state, to see just how much trouble Obama is in this cycle.

Washington (CNN) – As the congressional "super committee" works in Washington to cut America's federal debt, a panel of tea party activists will meet at a Denny's restaurant in Orlando to propose their own debt solutions.

The gathering, convened by the large conservative political group FreedomWorks, will meet Sept. 23, coinciding with the Florida Conservative Political Action Conference, an annual meeting of right-leaning politicians.

FreedomWorks, a bellwether tea party organization, will join the growing list of advocacy groups to launch a Super PAC, it announced Tuesday. The official launch of FreedomWorks for America (FWFA) will take place at the Florida CPAC convention later this week.
