George Will: “Of course I want Obamacare to fail”

On Sunday, George Will said what more Republicans and conservatives should be stating loud and clear: we want Obamacare to fail. Why do we want it to fail? Again, Will states it excellently: Of course I want Obamacare to fail, because if it doesn't fail, it will just further entangle American society with a government that is not up to this. For one hundred years now, the narrative of progressivism —from Woodrow Wilson on – has been, progress will come, if, but only if, we concentrate more and more power in Washington, and more and more power in Washington power in the executive branch, and more and more executive branch power in the hands of ...

George Will describes Washington Math

On Sunday, the Washington establishment’s most erudite conservative voice, George Will, described Washington Math to a T on ABC’s “This Week”: GEORGE WILL: Well, the post-partisan Obama of 2008 gave his inaugural speech in 2009 and, a couple weeks later, passed the stimulus bill with no Republican votes because it was simply a wish list of 30 years of Democratic longing.

"We reject the belief that America must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its ...

Columnist: House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady solution to ‘growth-igniting tax reform’

Pulitzer Prize-winning political journalist George Will in a recent syndicated column says House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas) holds the key to unlocking America’s earning potential. Read a portion of the column below: If there is going to be growth-igniting tax reform — and if there isn’t, American politics will sink deeper into distributional strife — Brady will begin it. Fortunately, the Houston congressman is focused on this simple arithmetic: Three percent growth is not 1 percent better than 2 percent growth, it is 50 percent better. If the Obama era’s average annual growth of 2.2 percent becomes the ...

You Won’t Believe What Happened in GOP Conference Last Night

As you've probably heard from media reports by now, last night Rep. Paul Ryan gave a speech to his colleagues in the Republican Conference meeting that he would accept the job of Speaker of the House as long as he could be a unifying force AND as long as the 3 major factions in the House got behind him. Oh, and there's one other thing. He wants the Republican Conference to change the rules of the House to remove the power of Members to issue a motion to vacate the chair - which you'll recall is the mechanism that Mark Meadows of North Carolina used to ultimately force John Boehner to step down. So Paul Ryan wants to be Speaker as long as he can ...
