The Late Edition: September 20, 2012

Today’s Taxpayer News!

NTU issued a Vote Alert today, urging all Representatives to vote “YES” on H.R. 3409, the “Stop the War on Coal Act of 2012.” The bill is meant to rein in the overzealous EPA, and hold the agency accountable to taxpayers.

NTU’s Communications Manager Doug Kellogg explains the many perils of the new Dairy Market Stabilization Program in an op-ed for CNS News. The bottom line for consumers? Higher dairy prices, as production drops.

Remember back in 2010 when the Congressional Budget Office estimated that 2 million Americans would be hit with a tax penalty under ObamaCare if they failed to purchase appropriate coverage by 2014? Well, double that number, and you now have the newest estimate from CBO. At this rate of recalculation, it’s not entirely improbable to imagine the number shooting even higher.
