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 ...

President Obama: Regulator in chief

President Obama in his almost eight years in office has upped the number of major regulations 31 percent over his predecessor George W. Bush adding more than $750 billion in overall costs to business and citizens and nearly 500 million more hours of paperwork, according to recent analysis. The Washington Examiner has the details: Businesses and conservative politicians have complained that the overwhelming burden of new federal regulations, especially in the health and financial world, has led to massive job cuts and bankruptcies.
