Our very own Wesley Mouch

In Atlas Shrugged, one of the main villains is Wesley Mouch, who is described in the Wikipedia entry on the book’s characters as “Initially Wesley Mouch is the least powerful and least significant of the Looters - the other members of this group feel they can look down upon him with impunity. Eventually he becomes the most powerful Looter, and the country’s economic dictator, thereby illustrating Rand’s belief that a government-run economy places too much power in the hands of incompetent bureaucrats who would never have positions of similar influence in a private sector business.”

AIG: "A Mistake at the beginning"

The media and political furor of the week is the employee bonuses paid by AIG under contracts that existed prior to the government’s effective takeover of the company. And while the President as well as politicians of both parties are fulminating about the payouts, voter anger should be directed more at those very politicians than at AIG.

Congress Angry about Irresponsible Use of Taxpayer Dollars

David Harsanyi of the Denver Post has written an amazing article on Congressional outrage over AIG bonuses.  "Here's an idea: If you stop nationalizing banks, there will be no need to engage in phony-baloney indignation over bonus payments anymore."  He's exactly right!  I can't say it any better than he does:

St. Patrick's Day: Some Hope from Ireland

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!  Each year since I became interested in development economics, St. Patty's day has reminded me of the free market revolution that took place in Ireland in the nineties.  Ireland was the poorest economy in Europe then, but by 2006, it had the highest per capita GPD on the continent and economic growth rates of 9 percent or higher.  How did they achieve it?  They massively reduced the size and role of government in their society.  They cut taxes, abolished agencies, cut spending, and stopped inflation.  They moved from one of the least free states in Europe to the freest.

Help Stop Tax Hike in Nassau County

County Executive Thomas Suozzi is planning to impose a new tax on cigarettes and a surcharge on traffic tickets in an effort to get some quick cash to fill Nassau County’s gaping budget deficit.  Like many other counties and municipalities across the country, Nassau is facing some tough times.  But you aren’t alone and raising taxes isn’t the answer.  Whether you smoke or not, you should be concerned about Mr. Suozzi’s tax and spend plan.Please call Mr. Suozzi at 516-571-3131 and tell him you oppose this regressive tax. It might be easy for politicians to think they can go after an unpopular minority of taxpayers to bring in more tax funds – but at the end of the day, those funds simply won’t be there.  Smokers will go across county lines to make their purchase, which hurt small businesses.  And statistically speaking, smokers tend to be amongst the poorest in a community.  Nassau County can’t ask this small group to shell out more and bear the financial burdens for everyone else.  Instead of pursuing plans that take more money out of Nassau residents’ pockets and burden businesses, Mr. Suozzi should cut waste and roll back regulations making Nassau a great place to do business and live.At the end of the day, when the money Mr. Suozzi was counting on isn’t there, he’s going to try to raise other taxes.  These nanny-state ideas always lead to bigger, badder taxes that will hurt Nassua County.  We need to nip this one in the bud and hold the line now.  Please call Mr. Suozzi at 516-571-3131 and tell him Nassau doesn’t need this new tax.If families and businesses have to stick to a budget and make tough decisions, Nassau County should do the same.  Join the Taxpayer Tea Party Movement: If you haven’t signed up yet – please go to IamWithRick.com and sign up for a tea party near you. Thousands of people have been turning out for taxpayer tea parties around the country to protest the Obama agenda of high taxes and bailouts.  If you would like to host a taxpayer tea party protest your your area, please email us for details. Come out on tax day and join others to show you oppose these big government plans.Your support of FreedomWorks is appreciated and supports our efforts for lower taxes, less government, and more freedom around the country.
