So, it’s December 1, 2013. They get healthcare.gov to work yet? #obamacare
This isn’t an academic question, by the way: there are kids with cancer who would like this administration to stop wrecking their health care. Little Hunter Alford needs chemotherapy to treat the rare and deadly cancer he was born with but has lost his health insurance under an administrative blunder seemingly caused by Obamacare. While the president’s signature policy promised that no one with a | Read More »

On Friday, the day after Thanksgiving–using @LaCasaBlanca, the Spanish twitter handle for the White House–Barack and Michelle Obama tweeted a picture of themselves posing with immigration reform activists who are on a hunger strike. RT @fast4families President Obama, @FLOTUS & the fasters today: "it's not a matter of if, but of when" #Fast4Families pic.twitter.com/lOQW2VIQVQ — La Casa Blanca (@lacasablanca) November 29, 2013 Interestingly, the person | Read More »
@BarackObama’s (and the Democrats’) war on the scourge of piano teacher nonprofit associations.
Background: the Federal Trade Commission got a bug up ah, decided that some boilerplate, non-binding, non-enforceable language in the Music Teachers National Association (a small nonprofit out of Ohio) represented an attempt to jack up prices in the high-stakes, ruthlessly competitive world of piano lessons (average lesson, according to the WSJ: $30). Not having any friends in court – and no, I don’t think that | Read More »
Assessing The Wake of Legislative Hiroshima
WHAT IS THE NUCLEAR OPTION? The nuclear option, which was triggered by Harry Reid last Thursday, is always characterized by the “puppet press,” but never described. And there is good reason for this. The nuclear option is nothing but an exercise in fraud. A majority of senators stand up and vote for a reading of the Senate rules that is absolutely palpably factually untrue — | Read More »

How The Internet Would Have Covered The First Thanksgiving
These days, a thing hasn’t happened if it hasn’t happened to the internet. If you don’t read about a story online, does it exist? Here at RedState, we say absolutely not. So in order to make the first Thanksgiving more real, to bring it home for us all, we’ve compiled some screenshots that show …

Giving thanks to the family
Michael Barone suggests that conservatives will probably never be able to re-run plays from the Ronald Reagan playbook, because the increasing “progressivism” of the tax system – a smaller group of wealthier people paying all the obvious taxes, while nearly half the population takes a “free ride” – makes it just about impossible to propose growth-oriented tax cuts without getting clubbed to the ground by leftists mobs | Read More »
Colorado anti-gun state Senator Evie Hudak (D) abruptly resigns her seat. #recall
Because gun control activists cannot protect their own. State Sen. Evie Hudak has decided to resign rather than risk facing a recall election that, should she lose, would flip control of the senate to Republicans, FOX31 Denver is first to report Wednesday. Hudak is expected to make the official announcement with a press release sometime Wednesday morning. Hudak, D-Westminster, could have been the third Democratic | Read More »

Why Are Unions Protesting Walmart Again? Is It Because Five Million Americans Applied For 500,000 Union-Free Jobs?
Three days before unions protest at Walmarts across the country, Diana Furchtgott-Roth makes an interesting observation
The odds of getting into one of the top American universities are about 1 in 10. American workers view Walmart in the same way as high school seniors view American colleges: last year 5 million Americans applied to Walmart for 500,000 jobs. These are highly valued positions.

Above politics, above dissent
The White House furies were swiftly unleashed across social media in the wake of the Supreme Court agreeing to hear Hobby Lobby’s case against the ObamaCare mandates, which force the owners of the craft superstore to violate their religious beliefs. Democrat politicians and their volunteer lefty auxiliaries bleated the “War on Women” line that mean old religious fanatics want to tell free-spirited women how to | Read More »
Hobby Lobby #Obamacare conscience exemption case to be heard by Supreme Court.
Not unexpected, but not before time, either. The U.S. Supreme Court today agreed to review the lawsuit filed by Hobby Lobby against the federal government over the Obamacare mandate that employers provide contraceptive coverage in their health plans. Hobby Lobby, which is owned by an Oklahoma City family with strong Christian beliefs, says a 1993 law, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, protects the company from | Read More »
Jack Kingston has Surrendered on Obamacare
Democrats are stewing in the misery of Obamacare’s disastrous side effects. We have a solid point of leverage coming in January to fight Obamacare in the budget. As we’ve explained, we have stronger leverage this time around than we did in October. However, that leverage is only predicated upon a united Republican Party committed to getting rid of Obamacare. Sadly, the recent comments by Rep. | Read More »
