Sen. Rand Paul, Rep. Mark Sanford introduce Obamacare repeal

Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Republican Rep. Mark Sanford of South Carolina this week introduced an Obamacare-repeal bill that has the backing of the 40-member House Freedom Caucus – the support it potentially needs to get the ball moving on getting rid of the disastrous health-insurance laws weighing heavily on American business and families. The Daily Signal has the details: “We’re excited about the fact that it will finally be able to address many of the concerns that we’re hearing, whether it’s at town halls or personal calls from our constituents about pre-existing conditions, about how to empower the consumer in terms ...

Bereaved father estimates nearly 4,000 people are killed annually by unlicensed, illegal immigrants

  A man whose son was killed in a hit-and-run by an unlicensed, illegal immigrant estimates 7,500 Americans are killed every year by unlicensed drivers and that half of those people are killed by illegal immigrants behind the wheel. Fox News has the story: As many as 7,500 Americans — 20 per day — are killed annually by unlicensed drivers, and Rosenberg calculates that more than half are the victims of illegal immigrants.

Bipartisanship on Amnesty: The Poison Pill

Over the last few weeks, pressure has built on the House to pass the Senate’s amnesty bill. So far, Speaker Boehner is holding strong on not even considering the bill, favoring smaller, more concise bills rather than the Obamacare style bill passed by the Senate: House Speaker John Boehner is sticking to his position: The House will not vote on the Senate-passed immigration bill. “I’ve made it clear and I’ll make it clear again, the House does not intend to take up the Senate bill,” Boehner said Monday. “The House is going to do its own job in developing an immigration bill.” Senate Majority Leader Reid is, of course, declaring that ...

Head-in-sand Syndrome: Media voices say deficit is not a problem

Since the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its latest projections on the national debt this past Tuesday, a chorus of voices has claimed our short-term and/or medium-term deficit problems are largely solved. Unfortunately, these voices are relying on unrealistic assumptions in the CBO’s report. Whenever the CBO releases its budget projections, it includes a “baseline,” or “current law,” scenario. Current law assumes what is on the books will stay on the books. However, since this rarely happens, CBO created a “current policy,” or “alternative fiscal,” scenario, in which certain deficit reduction measures do not go into ...

Help after Hurricane Sandy

Over the last two days, Hurricane Sandy has hit the North Atlantic seaboard hard. More than 30 people have died, and at least six million people are without power. Estimates of total damage are well into the billions. One way we can help our fellow patriots recover from the storm is to donate money to trustworthy charitable organizations like the Red Cross.  We know money is tight, given the economy, but if you could donate even just $5 to the Red Cross, we know your fellow countrymen will be grateful. Thank you.
