  • Washington in a Flash: Elizabeth Warren on the Hot Seat

    This morning Republicans will have their last chance to get answers about the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau before it opens on July 21. The brains behind the operation, Elizabeth Warren, is scheduled to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee at 9:30 a.m. ET.

    Today also marks the second day of the Roger Clemens trial, which is occurring at a federal courthouse in Washington. The former pitcher is charged with perjury, obstructing Congress and making false statements when three years ago he told congressional investigators and testified in an open hearing that he never used steroids or human growth hormones.

    Across town, meanwhile, members of Congress will compete in the 50th Annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity at Nationals Park. The legendary game will once again pit Democrats against Republicans, who are hoping to continue their winning record.

    Heritage is hosting an event on Sudan. A panel of experts will examine the security threats Sudan’s split poses to its people, governments and their neighbors, as well as what we can expect from the administration as the process moves forward. The event begins at 11 a.m. ET. Watch the webcast.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

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