Rep. Ann McLane Kuster (D, New Hampshire) sneers at the American people!
And not just the people of New Hampshire’s Second District. Kuster has a problem with all of us: …New Hampshire’s four members of Congress, three of them Democrats, were set upon by local reporters with one simmering question: What are you going to do about the faltering Affordable Care Act? Representative Ann McLane Kuster, the state’s freshman Democrat, displayed her own exasperation over the failed | Read More »
Boeing Bombshell: Machinists Union Bosses Negotiated Secretly Behind Local Members’ Backs
With the news last week that Machinists’ union members employed by Boeing in Puget Sound overwhelmingly rejected a proposed contract that would have meant years worth of work on the new Boeing 777X, much of the attention was focused on what it would mean for union members’ future and where the work would go following their rejection. As the long-term contract they voted down had | Read More »
‘Free as the Wind’: The True Cost of Wind Energy [Updated]
Green activists preach about renewable energy sources, using words like ‘holistic’ and ‘sustainable’. Wind energy is one of their favorites; nothing is as free as the wind, n’est-ce pas? If we truly consider the holistic environmental impact of wind turbines on the environment and the economy, it’s not a pretty picture. Nor is it sustainable. We’ve previously looked at the reliance of giant wind turbines | Read More »

Mary Landrieu (D) and Barack Obama (D) must denounce Lindel Toups (D) blatant racism.
This going to be an epic NAME! THAT! PARTY!!!!!: It’s important for this to be understood, because Louisiana is going to take a PR hit thanks to the reptilian/[expletive deleted]-for-brains remark [Lindel Toups] was credited with making in a piece appearing Wednesday in the Tri-Parish Times about tomorrow’s referendum in Lafourche Parish about redirecting library funds toward a new parish jail… [snip] But he’s | Read More »
Seattle’s ‘Universal Preschools’ Include ‘Strong-Arming’ Pre-K Day Care Providers Into Unionizing
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted. — Vladimir Lenin Seattle Mayor Mike MkGinn, a former community organizer whose wife was arrested earlier this month for taking part in a union-sponsored protest that stormed GOP offices, has been attempting to ‘strong arm’ Seattle’s preschools and child care providers into unionizing, according to the Seattle | Read More »
Stu Rothenberg: Michigan Senate race no longer a lock for the Democrats.
Hey, tell me again how utterly doomed the Republican party is next year. Republicans don’t need to win Michigan to get the majority in the Senate, but the Wolverine State could become a serious takeover target later next year. [snip] Make no mistake, [Democratic candidate Gary] Peters has shown remarkable political agility and starts this race with the edge, but this open seat should no | Read More »
Toure’, Progressivism And The Attitude That Endangers A Republic
TOURE NEBLETT: Let’s just look at members who are supporting this Landrieu bill, right. Mary Landrieu from a red state. Senator Kay Hagan from a red state. Joe Manchin from a red state. Senator Pryor from a red state. Senator Mark Begich from a red state. Do you notice anything? We see red state Democrats who are dealing with the challenge of living and governing in a gerrymandered world where sometimes they have to deal with what the folks on the right – very low support from the Republican side for this – what the folks on the right want.
I’ve hated gerrymandering for years and wished someone would write an algorithm to draw Congressional Districts that would just about make it impossible. Perhaps I should feel vindicated that a cracker-jack pundit on MSNBC is seeing things my way. Here’s Toure Neblett getting religion on gerrymandering. It’s just that there are two problems. One, you can’t gerrymander a Senate District. The 2nd, more serious problem is his attitude.

House Energy/Commerce Committee: HHS knew all along #obamacare was failing.
Oh, this should provide hours of amusement. House Energy and Commerce Committee leaders today unveiled a series of documents provided by the Department of Health and Human Services from July 2013 that reveal the administration internally voicing serious concerns about the progress of the HealthCare.gov website. Among the concerns raised by senior officials was the ability to meet the October 1 launch date and the | Read More »
This lawless era
Not only does President Obama lack the legal authority to impose the “fix” for insurance cancellations he described on Thursday, but his entire proposal boils down to inviting insurance companies to violate federal law, and promising not to prosecute them for it. That’s not an oversimplification – it’s literally true. The Affordable Care Act – which Obama has previously been fond of describing as “the settled | Read More »
Why Doesn’t The UAW Want A Secret-Ballot Election At VW?
It is a long-standing precedent that unions are legally allowed to lie
to workers in order to get their support–and lie they do.
Take, for example, Carol Wilson, a Volkswagen employee in Chattanooga who was misled into signing a UAW authorization card.

“When I was approached to sign a card a year and a half ago, it was, ‘Oh, the card just means you want more information.‘”
Wait…Didn’t Republicans Beat Up Conservatives For That?
During the fight over defunding Obamacare, Congressional Republicans claimed that Heritage Action for America, the Senate Conservatives Fund, RedState, and others were raising money off the defund fight and knew it would never work. In effect, they and their friends in the lobbyist community claimed conservatives were stirring up the base for the sole purpose of raising money. Now, in Congress, Republicans are considering Fred | Read More »
Party on Janet. Party on Barry.
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Francis Cianfrocca to discuss Janet Yellen’s testimony on Capitol Hill, if she will ever change the Fed’s monetary policy and the Obamacare “fix” that isn’t.

The Other Problem With Fred Upton’s Legislation
Let’s say the House passes Congressman Upton’s legislation and the Senate passes Senate Landrieu’s legislation. Let’s further say that Landrieu’s will not pass the House. We have two pieces of legislation that cannot pass either chamber. After the President’s press conference yesterday, a number of states announced that, contrary to what the President said, people will not be able to keep their healthcare plans. Likewise, | Read More »
