Medicare Trustee Cautions States on Obamacare Medicaid Expansion
Medicare Board of Trustees member Charles Blahous released a Mercatus Center report on March 5 recommending states take advantage of the U.S. Supreme Court’s June 2012 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) ruling by mostly rejecting the law’s Medicaid expansion.

Sen. Graham Backs Radical Obama Judicial Appointment

The federal agencies continue to promulgate rules and regulations that drive up the cost of the most vital goods and services to the point that most of us | Read More »
Morse’s Bill Profiles African Americans While Claiming Gun Manufacturer Liability Bill Won’t Lead To Profiling
After concerns were raised over the possibility that Sen. John Morse’s (D-Colorado Springs) “Assault Weapon Responsibility Act” would force gun dealers to engage in profiling, Morse promptly denied the claim, despite precedent in the bill that would specifically profile and target African Americans.

Top Dem Spokesman in WI Compares Gov. Walker to Murderer
It was the great scandal that wasn’t. An investigation called for by Governor Scott Walker while he was Milwaukee County Executive morphed into a politically-charged, partisan witch hunt led by a Democrat district attorney whose office was bent extracting political blood from the newly elected Republican governor.

Like an uninspired, hung-over reverend, Myerson attempts to preach a set of moral values he does not practice using a parable that represents the world as the world is not. We get treated to homilies of the sort that follow below.

Remembering Andrew Breitbart: One Year Later
I smiled as I passed him in the hallway. Surrounded, as always, by a group of people listening intently as he spoke animatedly in his uniquely captivating way.

House & Senate Republicans Set to Endorse and Fund Obamacare
You want to know why the left is more successful at politics? They are willing to move heaven and earth to create new dependency programs, despite the electoral risks.
