  • This Week in Washington: Sept 22, 2008

    There are three big issues in This Week in Washington.

    • Last week the House passed a sham energy bill that does not give states an incentive to allow off-shore drilling. That bill can possibly come before the Senate this week.
    • Also coming before the Sentate is Majority Leader Reid’s (D-NV) Omnibus bill that failed to pass the Senate in July. This bill contains over 100 bills that could cost the taxpayers millions.
    • Lastly, Heritage’s Brett Schaefer wrote that the UN’s responsibilities are to help maintain international peace and Bush and Congress should carefully consider any proposal from the UN

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
