    obama_17Heartland Institute Experts React to President Obama’s Power Plant Emission Rule to Fight Global Warming/Climate Change
    Joseph Bast, James M. Taylor, Jay Lehr, Ph.D., S.T. Karnick, Taylor Smith, John Coleman, Marita Noon, James H. Rust, and Alan Caruba, The Heartland Institute
    Heartland President Joseph Bast says, “President Obama and the Democrats are once again unleashing the Environmental Protection Agency on the American people. This is Obamacare for the environment: guaranteed to raise costs, reduce choices, and destroy an existing industry. By the time EPA is finished, millions of Americans will be freezing in the dark.” … READ MORE COMMENTS FROM EXPERTS


    Illinois Charters Survive Union Attack
    Joy Pullmann, The Heartland Institute
    In this Wall Street Journal video, Andrew Broy, president of the Illinois Network of Charter Schools explains how charter schools staved off a fierce union attempt against them this spring. “Thousands of charter school parents mobilized across the state” to beat back 12 bills that attempted to restrict charter growth and independence, Broy saidREAD MORE

    For every 100 mortgages being sold in the United States these days, at least 95 of them have government backing. We’re told America has a free-market economy? Not judging by the government’s involvement in housing, arguably the most important market there is. Most people can go years without needing health care. A healthy adult can go weeks without food. We cannot go one day without needing shelter...READ MORE

    Steve Stanek, The Heartland Institute
    A judge in Sangamon County Circuit Court recently blocked a modest reform of Illinois’ pension system for state workers and retirees outside Chicago from taking effect June 1, giving Gov. Pat “Four Counties” Quinn the excuse he’s probably been looking for to block reforms for two of Chicago’s pension plans. (I’ll explain “Four Counties” in a moment.) The Quinn-supported state pension reform blocked, for the time being, by Judge John Belz would raise the retirement age for many state workers and reduce and delay some annual cost-of-living increases. In return, the state would slightly reduce the amount of money taken from workers’ paychecks as pension contributions...READ MORE

    The Wall Street Journal recently reported on the burdens of troubled state health insurance exchanges, for which the costs are continuing to rise. The question is whether more money should be spent to fix the exchanges or if states should just throw up their hands and shift to the now-functional federal system, which itself comes with costs…READ MORE

    The current process for pharmaceutical firms seeking Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for new medications is long and arduous. And patients seeking to use experimental drugs before FDA approval must go through an exemption process that can take several months, requiring physicians to file paperwork that takes almost 100 hours to complete. Even after this lengthy process, the decision to grant an exemption for the patient’s use of the experimental drug lies solely with the FDA READ MORE

    No Consensus on Man-Made Global Warming
    Joseph Bast and Roy Spencer, Ph.D., The Heartland Institute
    Heartland President Joseph Bast and University of Alabama in Huntsville Principal Research Scientist Roy Spencer, Ph.D., wrote the lead opinion-editorial in the May 26 edition of The Wall Street Journal challenging recent claims by President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry claiming 97% of scientists agree global warming is both man-made and dangerous. The piece has generated 747 comments so far! Background research supporting points made in the essay can be found…READ MORE


    Common Core Repeal Goes to Oklahoma Governor
    Joy Pullmann, The Heartland Institute
    Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has until June 2 to sign a bill repealing and replacing national Common Core education mandates in her state; if she does nothing, the bill will get a “pocket veto” and will not become law. On May 23, the last day of the legislative session, the state House and Senate passed a repeal by votes of 71–18 and 31–10, respectively. The bill repeals Common Core from state law and requires schools to use Oklahoma’s previous academic benchmarks for two years while the state creates new standards…READ MORE

    California Gov. Jerry Brown blamed global warming for recent wildfires in California, but objective data show a decline in wildfires as our planet modestly warms. The 47,000 wildfires last year may seem like a very large number – and it certainly gives global warming alarmists like Brown plenty of fodder for misleading claims – but the 47,000 wildfires was less than half the average number of wildfires that occurred each year in the 1960s and 1970s. Earth was cooling during the 1960s and 1970s when so many more wildfires occurred…READ MORE

    Ben Capobianco, The Heartland Institute
    On May 16, Heartland Science Director Jay Lehr was a guest on “Your World with Neil Cavuto” to discuss the issue of living in high-risk locations: places where wildfires, hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, etc. occur on a regular basis. Lehr says those who choose to move into such areas should bear the cost of doing so: Instead of placing the tax burden of compensating fire fighters and other public servants on everyone in the area, Lehr calls for a shift of that burden onto those who choose to live in particularly high-risk areas...READ MORE

    States under full Democrat control have increased total spending more than 400 percent faster than states under full Republican control, according to a newly released analysis by Americans for Tax Reform. Key findings include significantly higher levels of growth in government spending in the 13 states where Democrats have unified control of the governor’s mansion and both chambers of the legislature, compared with the 24 states where the GOP has total control of state government…READ MORE

    The continued scandal of the Veterans Health Administration provides a good example of the downside of government-run medicine. But when it comes to comparisons to Obamacare, Avik Roy illustrates why the VA is much worse: The most important thing to understand about the Veterans Health Administration is that it truly is socialized medicine.

    The federal environmental regulatory system is broken. Thousands of pages of flawed environmental rules and regulations exist, with no reasonable chance they’ll ever be reformed given the entrenched special interests that benefit from them.

They cannot be efficiently and cost-effectively enforced given the overwhelming amount of information they demand...READ MORE
