    Buyer Beware: White House Sells Amnesty with Dubious Keynesian Economics

Most of this bump in income would go to the former illegal immigrants themselves, but the White House also claimed … More

    5 Immigration Questions

    During the August congressional recess, a pro-amnesty coalition of business and union interests is putting the squeeze on members of the House of Representatives to pass a “comprehensive immigration reform” bill similar to the Senate-passed monstrosity.

    Farm Bill: You'll Never Believe Where the House Wants to Spend Your Tax Dollars

    The House split up farm-related programs and food stamps, but they didn’t make a single reform to farm programs — and House leadership is hoping America doesn’t notice. The text of the farm-only bill was released late last night, and current plans are to vote on the bill as soon as … More
