Image of the Day: More Fantastic News from Gallup - Economic Confidence Highest Since 2000

More phenomenal news from Gallup.  Consumer spending accounts for approximately two-thirds of the U.S. economy, and economic confidence has now reached its highest point since 2000, when the mainstream media couldn't stop talking about how great things were.  Thank you, deregulation and tax cuts.

CFIF’s Public Education Effort Encourages Grassroots Action Aimed at Urging Mississippi Attorney General’s Office to Get Back to Fighting Crime Print E-mail
Wednesday, July 10 2019

ALEXANDRIA, VA – The Center for Individual Freedom ("CFIF") this week expanded its public education efforts in Mississippi by launching a new television ad.  The ad encourages grassroots action to urge the state attorney general’s ("AG") office to stop the practice of enriching outside plaintiffs' lawyers with over-aggressive claims cloaked in "consumer protection," and get back to fighting real crime.

The ad can be viewed below:

"For too long, attorneys general offices across the country have been misguided in their focus," said CFIF president Jeffrey Mazzella.  "Rather than devoting their primary attention to fighting real crime, these offices have been zealous in their pursuit of dubious and what they believe to be politically expedient civil actions against job creators, often enriching aggressive outside plaintiffs’ lawyers in the process.  Unfortunately, Mississippi has been a prime culprit of that in recent years," Mazzella continued. 

"CFIF’s public education effort, including this new television ad, is designed to create a grassroots groundswell in Mississippi to encourage state elected officials to push the AG’s office to focus more on fighting real crime – both aggressively tackling its crime-fighting obligations in the state and also by partnering with the federal government on issues like illegal immigration," Mazzella concluded.

Specifically, CFIF's ad encourages Mississippians to call Representative Mark Baker and thank him for pushing the AG’s office to tackle crime.  In the state legislature, Representative Baker has, among other major legislative initiatives, led the charge to limit the ability of the AG's office to file certain consumer lawsuits.  Representative Baker also is pushing the AG’s office to work with the federal government on issues like illegal immigration and border security. 

Founded in 1998, CFIF is a constitutional and free-market advocacy organization with more than 250,000 supporters and activists nationwide.
