    Rationing at the Food and Drug Administration

    During the year long ObamaCare debate, there was a spirited debate of the proposition that ObamaCare would cause rationing by the federal government of services and drugs.  Government rationed health care services and drugs have evolved from rhetoric to reality.  On July 28th, Senator David Vitter (R-Louisiana) raised drug rationing concerns, because of a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) pending decision to take the cancer drug Avastin off the list of approved drugs for breast cancer.   This example | Read More »

    The Fury of an Idiot Scorned

    In the event that this story is true, it would appear that President Obama’s classless low blow at the Supreme Court in this year’s State of the Union address may end up being significant for more than Alito’s silently mouthed rebuttal, after all: Justice Kennedy, who turns 74 this month, has told relatives and friends he plans to stay on the high court for at | Read More »

    ICYMI: The New York Times Profiles Erick

    Not too shabby. In his seven weeks as one of CNN’s newest contributors, Erick Erickson has made scarcely more than a dozen appearances on the network. But his every utterance – every Twitter message, blog post and radio rant – has been parsed with the rigor usually reserved for a Supreme Court nominee. Nice. As if you don’t already, follow Erick on Twitter here. Parse | Read More »
