Obamacare: The Greatest Show On Earth

Roll Call posted a fascinating article on Wednesday detailing the growing sense of concern (or perhaps it would be more accurate to call it PANIC!) that many Congressional Democrats—especially those in marginally safe to contested seats—are experiencing over the rolling catastrophe of Obamacare’s implementation. For those who opposed the passage of the law in the first place, it’s a somewhat satisfying … Read More

Chris Christie is the Greatest Politician Ever, Maybe.

A W E S O M E: “They informed me my budget was dead on arrival,” Christie told the crowd. “They said, ‘We’ll shut the government down.’” “I said, ‘Listen, I’m going to get into a black Suburban and I’m going to drive back to the governor’s residence, go upstairs and order a pizza. I’m going to turn on a … 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

Utterly Predictable

The law of unintended consequences strikes the state of Michigan: Since the ban on smoking in [small bars and restaurants] has been implemented, there has been a dramatic DECREASE in attendance at these locations.  Profits are down, and more businesses suffer under the heavy hand of our state government, and the do-gooders who inhabit it. I’m pretty sure that everyone … Read More

Liars.

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

Has Alan Frumin Saved America From Obamacare?

As with all things relating to the Zombie Bill From Hell (I refer of course to Obamacare; I’d link to the bill under discussion at the moment, but, you know, there isn’t one), this must be taken with a grain of salt, but if true, this certainly seems promising.  According to Roll Call: The Senate Parliamentarian has ruled that President … Read More
