America's famed free market economy is under siege.

When he was in the Senate, Jim DeMint wasn't shy about trying to recruit conservatives he thought would buck the Republican Party establishment and gum up the collegial workings of the legislative process. Now on the outside, running the Heritage Foundation, the former senator from South Carolina may have even more levers to pull.
Whether it's negotiating over how much to spend on government operations or the government's borrowing limit, we hear a familiar refrain in Washington these days: There is absolutely no room to cut federal spending. This is not the case.
As Washington's quiet August days dwindle down, Labor Day — and the return of Congress — draw nearer. With no spending bills passed and a debate looming over the debt limit, this fall promises to be quite contentious on Capitol Hill.
The top U.S. trade official said Tuesday that he is "cautiously optimistic" about the nation's ability to complete a major free-trade pact with 11 other key Pacific Rim nations by the end of the year, after the latest round of the talks on the potential Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) wrapped up last week in Malaysia.
