New lows for Obama and ObamaCare
A new CBS News poll finds that approvals for both President Obama and his signature legislation, ObamaCare, have “plunged” to record lows.
Obama’s disapproval rating is now 57 percent. That is the highest disapproval CBS News Polls has ever found for Obama. Worse, only 37% now approve of Obama’s performance as president.

Next time, Democrats will take your doctor hostage
Every true “independent” voter in the United States should be clamoring for the full and immediate repeal of ObamaCare after watching a few days of Barack Obama’s Shutdown Theater. Do you really think the man who vandalized the World War II Memorial with barricades to make elderly veterans suffer will hesitate a microsecond to use your health care as leverage against you, the next time you defy | Read More »
@BarackObama kills Big Bird’s health care.
You know, a competent administration would have someone on staff whose job it would be to keep track of potentially awkward symbolic moments, in order to keep them from exploding in their boss’s face. Apparently not: In a letter sent last week to President Obama, U.S. Rep.

Starting January 1st, 2014, employers will NOT be required to offer people health care. Barack Obama gave them one year extensions, not individuals.

The drive to defund ObamaCare: doomed, but useful
House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) is at it again, producing one of those antiquated “budget” documents that seem so painfully square to hip, swinging, money-no-object, deficit-reduction-means-tax-increases Democrats. Washington stopped producing anything resembling the conventionally understood accounting instrument of “budgets” many years ago (you know, the green-eyeshade stuff where assets equal liabilities, and income more or less covers expenses) but even the silly deficit-riddled | Read More »
It was The State of Alabama, under Governor Wallace in the 1960’s who helped caused Federalism to fall into disrepute at the expense of the American commonweal. It is perhaps only fitting that a governor of Alabama do what is necessary to reinstate Federalism as a valuable weapon by which America resists totalism and tyranny that overcome less robust systems of national governance than our own.
