What the Supply Chain Crisis Tells Us About the PRO Union Bosses Act

| Posted in E&L Blog

Christmas is cancelled – at least, in the way Americans have come to know it. Despite COVID-19’s waning risks on indoor gathering, Biden’s supply chain crisis is still threatening to derail the holiday. And labor unions share a large portion of that blame. In a recent Politico opinion piece, while lamenting the perilous state of U.S. shipping logistics even before the pandemic, Rich Lowry writes, ... Read more »

Biden’s Supply Chain Crisis Hits Hungry Students

| Posted in E&L Blog

“If nothing changes, we will not be able to feed our students anything.” “The kitchens are stretched to the breaking point.” “Something has to give before we lose our minds.” “Does anyone hear us?” Educators and school leaders are in crisis mode. Food supplies are drying up. And children, who have already lost a year of in-person learning, are now faced with the prospect of supply chain-related sc... Read more »

Quick Take: Taxpayer Bailout of Failing Pensions Didn’t Protect Workers or Retirees

| Posted in E&L Blog

The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) just confirmed what Republicans knew to be true, but Democrats refused to admit: the taxpayer-funded bailout of failing and insolvent multiemployer pension plans will fail. Despite a massive influx in taxpayer dollars, PBGC is still on track for insolvency. What’s equally concerning, the price tag for the program continues to rise. When Democrats pas... Read more »

Democrats in Disarray over Socialist Drug Pricing Scheme

| Posted in E&L Blog

Democrats cannot come to a consensus over whether or not to socialize drug pricing. H.R. 3, the Higher Costs and Fewer Cures Act, is packaged into the radical fiscal year 2022 budget and would allow the Secretary of Health and Human Services to mandate private companies’ drug prices or face a bankruptcy-inducing 95 percent tax rate. It’s government interference in the dealings of private companies... Read more »

Quick Take: Committee Democrats Swoon Over Communist China

Quick Take: Democrats Fail Students Impacted by Biden’s Afghanistan Mess

| Posted in E&L Blog

Americans have been horrified over the last month as we have witnessed the dangerous and inept withdrawal of America from Afghanistan.

They may have veterans of the Afghanistan war suffering from trauma in the af... Read more »

Quick Take: Federal Takeover of Higher Education

| Posted in E&L Blog

Quick Take: Federal Takeover of Higher Education Instead of expanding all educational opportunities for students, Democrats intend to dictate what choices millions of students make along the path of their postsecondary education with the promise of “free” tuition. Not all students are best served through these traditional baccalaureate degree programs. Indeed, the data suggests that students are i... Read more »

Quick Take: A Death Knell for Small and Private Businesses

| Posted in E&L Blog

Democrats won’t be receiving any “Thank You” cards from small and private businesses any time soon. The Democrat’s partisan spending spree includes a provision to increase civil monetary penalties radically under the Fair Labor Standards Act by 900 percent. The National Federation of Independent Business sent a letter opposing this radical legislation. Theit letter rightly pointed out: “FLSA viola... Read more »

Quick Take: Employers Deserve Religious Freedoms Too

| Posted in E&L Blog

One of government’s most basic responsibilities is to defend fiercely freedom of religion. Unfortunately, Democrats often abandon that call and become religious freedom’s greatest threat. Their latest battleground against our first amendment rights is the budget. The Democrats’ plan allocates funding that could result in a rewriting of key Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidance on... Read more »

Quick Take: Democrats Accelerate Biden’s Inflation Crisis

| Posted in E&L Blog

The inflation crisis is on track to hit the highest level since 1981 and is already up more than 7 percent since Biden took office. Democrats are pushing yet another irresponsible spending bill that will accelerate Biden’s inflation crisis. Congressional Democrats are asking Americans to pay for these socialist programs twice: once with taxes from their hard-earned paychecks and again at gas pumps... Read more »
