AFP VP Policy Phil Kerpen issued the following statement on the reported FAA deal:
Senate Democrats shut down the FAA to block a House-passed long-term extension over special interest union provisions. They blocked a short-term extension to protect egregious pork-barrel spending for rural airports with almost no passengers under the Essential Air Service.
Now, a "deal" has been announced under which the Senate will pass the House's short-term extension, but the president will somehow keep the pork dollars flowing, in plain violation of what the law says and the basic constitutional principle of separation of powers.
Senate Democrats and a Budget — Still Missing In Action Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2011/08/02/senate-democrats-
Senate Democrats have failed to pass a budget for 825 days and counting, violating the 1974 Budget Act that requires an annual budget.
Now, thanks to the provisions of the debt ceiling deal, they can get away with extending their irresponsibility streak through the next election and into 2013. Senate Democrats will now go fully four years without passing a budget.
Every single Senate Democrat voted against President Obamas budget, and every single Senate Democrat voted against the House-passed budget authored by Rep. Paul Ryan. They refuse to support any of the plans on the table, and they refuse to tell the American people what they stand for. It is the ultimate in political cowardice in a tough situation, attack everything and stand for nothing.
Economic Liberty Under Attack in Nashville

Do you think the government should be able to restrict your right to earn an honest living, just to protect a group of politically favored insiders from having to compete with you?
Unfortunately, that is exactly what the City of Nashville is doing.
Nashville is forcing sedan and independent limo services to charge a minimum price to protect politically connected companies from having to compete with more affordable alternatives. Anti-competitive, protectionist laws like these hurt entrepreneursespecially those on the first rung of the economic ladderand customers, by driving up prices and driving down quality.
Since President Obama took office the national debt is up 35% and unemployment is up 18%, yet he opposes real reforms that would get spending under control and our economy moving again. It is time to lead. Tell President Obama to put America's needs ahead of partisan politics by clicking here.
