As the chart shows, even before the first quarter contraction we were […]

Delay Obamacare Until VA is World’s Best

How ironic that just as we begin year five of chaotic, stop-and-start Obamacare implementation, a scandal over malfeasance in the Veterans Administration health care system bursts into the headlines.   The VA’s own Inspector General announced that as a result of whistle-blower reports, 26 facilities are now under investigation, accused of maintaining off-the-books waiting lists, designed […]

Five Years of Stimulus Debunks Keynesian Theory

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is now five years old.  Known affectionately as his “stimulus” it was President Obama’s first legislative triumph, attracting high praise and hosannas from the media.

Obama’s Federal Nursery School

In his State of the Union speech President Obama ran through his laundry list of proposed new government run programs and government spending that he called “investments,” including this: Research shows that one of the best investments we can make in a child’s life is high-quality early education.  Last year, I asked this Congress to […]

The Victims of Fundamental Transformation

President Obama roared into office vowing a “fundamental transformation” of America.  His transformation has not been kind to middle class workers.

By President’s Own Criteria ObamaCare Fails

The President’s answer to critics is they must come up with an alternative that meets much higher standards than he has met with ObamaCare.

A Big Lie and A Little Apology

President Obama emphatically promised “If you like your health insurance you can keep your health insurance” over and over because he knew, from recent history, that the truth would be fatal to his health care legislation. The media herd stampeded breathlessly Thursday night to news that President Obama had “apologized” to the millions whose health […]

The Precarious ObamaCare Individual Mandate

The government shut down could have ended in only three days. It did not because the President desperately needs to reconcile his pre-ObamaCare demagoguery and deception with the unbending laws of math and economics.
