And we were right: Boehner and other Republicans point to reports that the Health and Human Services Department is giving Pennsylvania | Read More »

Why Didn’t the Democrats Take a Vote on Deficit-Neutral Unemployment Bill?
According to Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi unemployment benefits are the best way to create jobs, so why didn’t she get with Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and press him to schedule a pre-recess vote on the Republican alternative to the Democrat’s jobs/unemployment benefits bill introduced on June 30, 2010 by Senator Scott Brown (R-MA). Brown’s bill is deficit neutral and could easily solve the current problems in passing | Read More »

Democrat Rob Miller Runs Away to DC for Cash; Joe Wilson Turns to Grassroots
Democrat Rob Miller of South Carolina runs away from his constituents and finds refuge in the comforts of the DC establishment to raise campaign cash.

Dear McClatchy: If It’s Not the Jones Act, Then What Is Causing the Delayed Response to the Oil Spill?
The reflexive nature of the press to defend and attack any critic of President Obama is eerily statist. I found an interesting read via the HotAir headlines from McClatchy, which defends Obama’s action of not waiving the Jones Act of 1920.
