CEI Today: Fracking & jobs, minimum wage & women, and Human Achievement Hour

Monday, March 31, 2014
In the News Today


FRACKING - WILLIAM YEATMAN

Las Vegas Review-Journal


The natural gas and oil shale revolution — despite obstacles to drilling offshore and on federal land — has almost single-handedly driven the economic recovery the president is taking credit for.

William Yeatman, an energy policy expert with the Competitive Enterprise Institute, told Mr. Markay: “It represents the difference between an industry which exists of its own accord, providing goods and services that people actually want to buy, and an industry that exists only by the grace of government, which acts to mandate demand and subsidize supply.”

MINIMUM WAGE - ALOYSIUS HOGAN

 

Daily Caller

All raising the minimum wage is going to do is keep women at home, counters Aloysius Hogan, a senior research fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

“There are jobs that are going to be lost and it’s the women who will be losing them,” he told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Hogan continued, “Who is losing out by increasing the minimum wage? It is the lower wage workers. And who are they losing out to? The unionized higher skilled workers.”

ALG urges passage of JOBS Act 

6

March 26, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement urging passage of the JOBS Act being introduced in the House of Representatives:

"Americans for Limited Government strongly urges passage of the Republican Study Committee's JOBS Act.  The JOBS Act is comprehensive legislation that unleashes private job creators through overturning the Obama Administration's regulatory assault on the American workforce.

"The JOBS Act stifles Obama's War on Coal creating a low cost energy future that is needed to build a robust U.S. manufacturing sector which isn't dependent upon government subsidies for success.  The Act also strips away the rogue National Labor Relation's Boards capacity to serve as prosecutor, judge and jury on employment law cases, a power that has created profound workforce uncertainty for employers who seek to follow the law.  The House of Representatives should pass the JOBS Act without delay."

Innis For Congress - Statement On Biden NH Visit 

Manchester, NH - Dan Innis, Republican candidate for Congress in NH-01, released the following statement in response to Joe Biden's New Hampshire visit today for a workplace development event.

"As a small business owner I know firsthand the crippling effect that the Obama Administration's policies have had on our economy. Career politicians like Vice President Joe Biden and Congresswoman Shea-Porter have no clue how to get America working again, but I do.

My Innis Agenda for Jobs and the Economy will remove federal barriers to job creation and allow American entrepreneurs to create the jobs we need. Free market improvements to trade, transportation and agriculture policy, as well as overdue regulatory and legal reforms will unleash the American economy. We build businesses one job at a time, and it's time for Congress to get out of the way so America can get back to work."

ALG's Daily Grind - Giving away the Internet surrenders the First Amendment 

6

March 20, 2014

Permission to republish original opeds and cartoons granted.

Giving away the Internet surrenders the First Amendment
Electronic Frontier Foundation in 1998: "Internet administration has always guaranteed free speech and due process, since it has been done by U.S. Government contractors who are required to follow the U.S. Constitution. If the New IANA moves Internet administration out from under the U.S. Government, as there is general agreement to do, the public will lose these guarantees…"

Cartoon: Joke and change
The Russians are laughing at us.

Why do schools exist?
New York City's far left mayor Bill de Blasio this month used his new mayoral authority to take aim at children, ordering three charter schools, which had previously been approved space to operate within city school property, to no longer be allowed to open in the approved sites.
