HEALTHCARE: In Some States, a Cost Crunch Over Expanded Health Benefits “President Barack Obama promised that his Affordable Care Act would work to reduce health costs. But a recent Kaiser Health News article outlined one way in which the law–and the way the administration and states have implemented it–is helping to increase costs. The issue surrounds benefit mandates at the state level, which require insurers offering policies in that state to cover a particular type of treatment, provider, or service. While many of these mandates may sound appealing, they incrementally raise the cost of insurance–for procedures that some people might ...

74% Oppose Executive Amnesty, White House Threatens Anyway

The Obama Administration faced another warning sign yesterday in its relentless push for amnesty. A new poll reveals most Americans, including key voters like independents and Hispanics, oppose the President’s plan to fundamentally transform immigration laws with the stroke of his pen.

This includes “81% of independents and 75% of moderates.”[1] Surprisingly, Democrats do not favor it either with 56% disapproving of such action. The only group showing support for ...

In times as tough as these, it’s sometimes hard to be optimistic. With ...

The Congressman Who Cried Cuts

With the sweeping 2010 victory in the House, there was some glimmer of hope that Congress would try to get its fiscal house in order, especially with the pledge from Republicans to cut $100 billion in discretionary spending. However, like a reverse auction the amount went from $100 billion to $61 billion to $38.5 billion, which in reality turned out to be $352 million. Despite the failure to make real, deep cuts in spending, many thought the Republicans would at least draw the line in the sand and take a strong stance against raising the debt ceiling, forcing Congress to make serious spending reductions. As you may remember, according to Zogby, ...
