Public Service and Civic Virtue in Detroit

…are apparently understood differently than they are in most of the rest of the country: federal grand jury today indicted former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, his father and three former top aides on racketeering charges, accusing them of turning the mayor’s office into a criminal enterprise to enrich themselves, families and friends. Besides the now-jailed former mayor, the 38-count indictment names … Read More

It Was All Lies.

Not a moderate.

Quote of the year, Health Care category: It’s a bit late in the day to ask whether President Obama made a single truthful argument in favor of Obamacare. Yet he and his congressional allies probably didn’t expect the exposure of their lies to begin quite this soon after their nationalization of health care. Throw the damn liars out.  Every last … Read More

Honest Democrats are Rare and Precious

…and should be kept away from Congress like the rest of them all the same.  Virginia Congressman Tom Perriello had this to say back in March: “If there’s one thing I’ve learned up here (in Washington) and I didn’t really need to come up here to learn it, is the only way to get Congress to balance the budget is … Read More

In Shocking Turn Of Events, CBO Announces That Congress Is Filled With Deceitful Scum

Alternate headline: THEY LIED.  But we knew that before they passed this rancid loaf, didn’t we?  And frankly, they’ve been confirming that ever since. Regardless, here’s the news that anyone with any intelligence and honesty knew was coming: Congressional Budget Office estimates released Tuesday predict the health care overhaul will likely cost about $115 billion more in discretionary spending over … Read More

Filthy, stinking, brazen liars: The economic report released last week by Health and Human Services, which indicated that President Barack Obama’s health care “reform” law would actually increase the cost of health care and impose higher costs on consumers, had been submitted to the office of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius more than a week before the Congressional votes on the bill, … Read More

Democrats Lie. It’s Just What They Do.

Liars: Basically, this is an admission that the numbers the Democrats submitted to the CBO were entirely false, and that they plan to make this bill a deficit expander in the spring.  It’s a breathtaking admission of deceit and hypocrisy — and its exposure should have the media asking more questions about that CBO scoring and putting Democrats in the … Read More

Obama’s Swindle

In an ideal world, we would actually listen to Thomas Sowell and would thus avoid a ton of economic and social pain.  Unfortunately we do not live in an ideal world.  At NRO, Sowell points out something that needs to be understood far and wide: In a swindle that would make Bernie Madoff look like an amateur, Barack Obama has … Read More

What’s The Point, Suicide Squad?

Louise "Brutal" Slaughter

Ramesh Ponnuru makes a point that I’ve been thinking of since the weekend, which is – what difference does it make if the dems use the Slaughter rule to pass the bill in terms of the political response?  I mean, they don’t want to vote for the actual bill because it’s politically toxic, so they’re going to vote for the … Read More

Scott Brown Tells The Truth

Delivering the Republican response to President Pantsonfire’s weekly cavalcade of leftist BS: Somehow, the greater the public opposition to the healthcare bill, the more determined they seem to force it on us anyway. Their attitude shows Washington at its very worst – the presumption that they know best, and they’re going to get their way whether the American people like … Read More
