Bureau of Labor Statistics: Unemployed more likely to shop for non-essentials than job search

  The Bureau of Labor Statistics released data that shows unemployed Americans on an average day are more likely to shop for things than look for employment opportunities. The Washington Free Beacon has the details: Only 18 percent of unemployed Americans spent time searching or interviewing for a job on an average day, while 41.1 percent shopped online, in store, or by phone. About one in five unemployed Americans, or 21.2 percent, went shopping for items other than food and gas… “The fact that unemployed people choose leisure over job hunting suggests the ongoing economic malaise has discouraged them from even looking for a job, ...

Reps. John Fleming (R-La.) and Tim Huelskamp Wednesday night led the charge as members of the House Freedom Caucus filed a resolution that, if passed, requires President Obama’s IRS Commissioner John Koskinen be impeached.

The resolution is now expected to linger over the lengthy summer recess into ...

The legislation is being considered not only at a time when ...

IRS releases list of more than 425 organizations targeted for their political beliefs

The Internal Revenue Service after admitting more than three years ago agency officials targeted Americans for their political beliefs has finally released an almost-exhaustive list of the charities it homed in on for extra scrutiny as the agency slow-rolled applications for tax-exempt status.

Obamacare enrollee: “It’s going to be a monopoly, basically: ‘Here’s the price; take it or leave it’”

The Wall Street Journal recently published a story highlighting the departure of health-insurance companies from the imploding Obamacare marketplace. This to the detriment of the Obamacare-marketplace enrollees left behind in rural areas who – in many cases – have only a single option for their health-insurance carrier. Breitbart has the details: “The entire states of Alaska and Alabama are expected to have only one insurer on the health law’s signature online marketplaces next year, according to state regulators,” writes the Journal. “The same is expected to be true in parts of several other states, including Kentucky, Tennessee, ...

Healthcare expert says some insurers could hike premiums by more than 10 percent

Those signing up for Obamacare are more so the “frequent fliers” than the young, healthy millennials the Obama administration was banking on to keep its disastrous health-insurance scheme afloat. Consequently, health-insurance companies are alleging they need to hike their premiums – some in excess of 10 percent, says one healthcare expert – to make up the difference and offset unexpected costs. The Washington Time has the details: The people signing up for Obamacare so far are sicker than expected, meaning insurers will have to raise rates to cover the costs, in what nonpartisan analysts said amounts to a “market correction.” Even ...
