Families Hurt By ObamaCare Share Their Stories
President Obama made many promises about ObamaCare. And President Obama has broken many promises about ObamaCare. He promised that if you like your current plan, you could keep it. He promised that ObamaCare would make healthcare more affordable. Today, millions of Americans are finding out that’s not true. Their plans are getting canceled. Their premiums are increasing. Democrats are unfazed and unconcerned about this. It | Read More »
Why Unions Are Pouring Money Into Virginia & Why You Should Care
Union bosses and other out-of-state liberals–from Hollywood to New York–are pouring millions into the Virginia governor’s race.
They are, without a doubt, hell-bent on defeating Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and putting long-time Democratic party boss and fund-raiser Terry McAuliffe into the governor’s seat.
More than that, however, the Left may be using the governor’s race to put the final nail in the coffin for Republicans in a state that has swung from reliably red to almost blue.

You will be made to care
At some point, those of you on the right who have completely ceded the field to the Democrats on so-called social issues will need to confront an uncomfortable reality. There is no floor to the licentiousness of the statist social-engineering agenda. We will not have a liberty-driven prosperous country built upon the ruins of the civil society. We can only go so far with government-sanctioned | Read More »
Obamacare: End it, don’t mend it.
Over the next weeks we will hear more and more calls from the left and from the Vichy Caucus of the Republican party to take action to un-screw Obamacare. Don’t be deceived, the people advocating cooperating in finding fixes to Obamacare are no different than the Democrats who wrote and passed the bill.

In Alabama, the Chamber of Commerce Fires Shots Against the Tea Party
I have not really paid attention to the race between Bradley Byrne and Dean Young in Alabama’s first congressional district. But it suddenly flew onto my radar yesterday with news that the Chamber of Commerce is using it as its first base of operations to repel the tea party. The only polling I’ve seen has Young slightly ahead but I am not sure about the | Read More »
It’s Not about the Website or the Individual Mandate
When discussing the problems with Obamacare we often hear the politicians focus on the failure of the website, healthcare.gov. Clearly, the website failure is a great illustration of the dangers of statism and bureaucracy, but there is no doubt the website will get fixed. They will make sure of it. The individual mandate is also a tangential point in the scheme of things. Obviously, there | Read More »
‘We can’t just drill our way to lower gas prices.’ Says who?!
But you and I both know that with only 2% of the world’s oil reserves, we can’t just drill our way to lower gas prices – not when consume 20 percent of the world’s oil. – Barack Obama, March 10, 2012 Oh, really?
Cuccinelli Closing In on McAuliffe
I’ve been struggling to find good news in the Virginia Governor’s race and there is finally a bit. Cuccinelli has closed the gap with McAuliffe and is only 4 points behind now, even with the third party candidate at 9%. Hallelujah. Ken is a good friend and I’ve been both dearly worried about him and deeply disappointed in a bunch of Republicans who’ve decided to | Read More »
Obama’s Kangaroo Court Now In Session: Senate confirms another union lawyer as NLRB prosecutor
Ever since July, when Republicans caved in to Harry Reid’s “nuclear option” threat, GOP resistance to Barack Obama’s appointments to agencies like the National Labor Relations Board (as well as others) has been virtually non-existent. A day after Sen. Lindsey Graham’s empty threat to block appointments until his questions about Benghazi were answered, the Senate voted to confirm controversial union lawyer Richard Griffin as the | Read More »
CNN reports Obama admin failed to ensure contractors could test Healthcare.gov
CNN has released a report that the main Healthcare.gov contractor CGI warned the Obama administration one month in advance that there were critical problems preventing them from ensuring a clean launch of the website. In particular, the administration was warned that testing was being obstructed.
The quote from the CGI memo leaves no doubt, if you understand the technical jargon used in the memo. I’ll take it apart and explain just how bad this situation really was.

The Hungry and the Well Fed
In William F. Buckley’s mission statement for National Review, written in 1955, he did not mention winning elections. That’s not to say it is unimportant, unneeded, or unwanted. But it was not mentioned. In fact, Buckley wrote, “We believe that truth is neither arrived at nor illuminated by monitoring election results, binding though these are for other purposes, but by other means, including a study | Read More »
Liberals Fear the Heritage Foundation and They Should
The other day on Morning Joe, Eugene Robison was on and lashed out at the Heritage Foundation for leading the fight against Obamacare. He, like many other concern trolling liberals, said “Heritage Foundation, for example, which, you know, you would think ought to be coming out with those sort of reasonable [health care] policies … now they’re like, one of the loudest voices thanks to | Read More »
Mitch McConnell Ready to Fight GOP Base
Everything you ever thought about Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is wrong. He really is a fighter after all. At a recent fundraiser with 300 K street donors, as reported by Politico, Mitch McConnell was in a combative mood.
