The Colorado #obamacare exchange is a disaster.
I’m sorry*, but there’s no other way to describe these enrollment numbers. Which are, by the way, from a state exchange – meaning that the problems of healthcare.gov should theoretically be irrelevant to the conversation: Enrollments have grown to 15,074, marketplace officials announced Monday. Marketplace officials set a goal of 136,000 people covered on exchanged-based plans by the end of 2014, but so far the | Read More »

The Big Spenders Return
If Paul Ryan were a Peanuts character, he’d be the guy who pulls the football out of the way just as he himself is about to kick it. Over the past number of years, Congressman Ryan has come up with a few reform proposals. From his roadmap to this, he has made as his starting point for negotiations that which should be his ending point. | Read More »
Tech at Night: An uncomfortable truth about the NSA and corporate security. Let the market, not government, regulate phones on planes.
Marsha Blackburn says the White House just isn’t credible on privacy. Is she right? Probably. I also think people really don’t care about privacy. Note the lack of an exodus from Google services even now.
I agree that it’s a very smart idea for FCC to eliminate rules that no longer make sense. Having a law, as opposed to the free market, ban phone use on planes, is a pointless power grab. We must defeat all GOP attempts to pass these laws which would have silenced 9/11 victims on the planes. I’d even suggest both Bill Shuster and Lamar Alexander need primary opponents, as they are exposing their big-government tendencies over this.
See, this is smart. We shouldn’t totally rewrite large bills like the Communications Act. We should implement targeted reform, one step at a time. FCC process reform is surely needed, and can be tackled in a standalone way.

Ann McLane Kuster (Democrat), 2011: Libya = Middle East. Kuster, 2013: …NO IT’S NOT!
For the benefit of Democratic Rep. Ann McLane Kuster, (NH-02)… Benghazi is the second largest city in Libya. Libya is that somewhat large country in North Africa between Algeria and Egypt. That particular country, desperate apologists to the contrary*, is part of what most people call ‘the Middle East,’ – including, apparently, Ann McLane Kuster. From March of 2011: Kuster said she supports Obama’s recent | Read More »
Emerging Ryan-Murray Deal: More Taxes to Fund Obamacare and Increased Spending
James Madison was very adamant that the power of the purse be preserved in the body of government that is closest to the people – the House of Representatives – as a way to redress all grievances against harmful government interventions. We have a law that is woefully unpopular and universally regarded as unworkable, yet Republicans have made it abundantly clear to the Democrats that | Read More »
The War on Misfortune
It’s always wise to assume the worst when you hear politicians declaring war on a vague notion, such as “inequality.” Inequality is replacing “injustice” as the eternal socialist crusade of choice. ”Injustice” had too many connotations of actual law enforcement – something the Left generally dislikes. They really hated it when their quest for cosmic, redistributive “social justice” was conflated with the mundane business of | Read More »
