Calling Harry Reid Back to Reality

Speaking on the Senate Floor, Majority Leader Harry Reid tried to make the case for President Obama’s so-called “Jobs Act” which, in part, would impose permanent tax increases on private sector  employers to pay for temporary federal subsidies that supposedly would enable state and local governments to rehire employees they have had to lay off.

Prepare For the Counterattack

Whether we like it or not, we are in a political war to determine what ideology will prevail in the future of America.  Will it be the ideology of liberty?  Or will it be the ideology of authoritarian control by a self-appointed elite?  Last night the authoritarian side lost a battle.  But the war is […]

Baucus Cynically Shrugs Off a Senator’s Duty

For those unfamiliar with the arcane customs of the Senate, any Senator can ask that the Senate take some action, such as amending a bill by “unanimous consent.”  The presiding Chairman asks if there are any objections.

Garbage-in-Garbage Out: CBO Scores Reid Bill

Political Fantasy Meets Political Reality

It appears that in spite of the most strenuous efforts of the political-media establishment, ObamaCare may crash and burn due to lack of enough Democrat votes in the House of Representatives.

Covert Extreme Makeover of the Medical Industry

It seems Democrats have learned their lesson.  The House Health Care bill, HR 3200 has been online since July, spreading fear and alarm throughout the land as Internet based analysts helped millions of Americans see for themselves the yawning gap  between the actual legislation and President Obama’s extravagant, Utopian promises. Tens of thousands of people […]

ObamaCare Vs. the Constitution (1)

A front page article in Friday’s Wall Street Journal reminds us, perhaps unintentionally, that The President and Congress, with the exception of fewer than a dozen members, have decided the Constitution is obsolete, and irrelevant.  The article, titled “Moderate Senators Hold Key to High-Stakes Legislation,” says: …the balance of power in determining the course of […]

The Big Stimulus: Straining Toward A Trillion

President Obama addressed the economic crisis this morning: The economic crisis we face is unlike any we’ve seen in our lifetime. It’s a crisis of falling confidence and rising debt.
