Years from now, it is likely that most people will view fewer new businesses and fewer new jobs as the chief legacy of the Pelosi Congress. The uncertainty surrounding the impending tax hike on January 1st and the new regulations and mandates under ObamaCare have made it nearly impossible for entrepreneurs to plan for the future.
The Wall Street Journal reports
that the number of companies… Continue

With the clock ticking, the American people are now just 32 days from suffering a $3.9 trillion tax increase due to the refusal of congressional Democrats and the Obama White House to renew the Bush tax cuts for every American taxpayer.
According to research
from the Tax Foundation, the average middle class family in the United States will see a tax hike of $1,540 on January 1st if Congress fails to act… Continue

As we gather tomorrow with friends and family for a Thanksgiving feast, we all have much for which we should be thankful.
First and foremost, we should remember and keep in our prayers the brave men and women who wear our country’s uniform. Many of them will spend their Thanksgiving Day standing a post far from home, away from their friends and families, so that we can live free in the greatest nation on Earth. We can never thank them enough.
As Americans, we should also… Continue

In just 38 days, if Congress continues to fail to act to renew the Bush tax cuts, each and every taxpaying American will see his or her taxes go up on New Year’s Day. Estimates show that allowing the tax cuts to expire on December 31st will result in a $3.9 trillion tax increase
Unemployment continues to linger at nearly 10 percent. In some states, the number of people out of work… Continue

When Congress reconvenes after Thanksgiving, it will be clear that the governing philosophies of the two parties have rarely been so different.
Despite controlling majorities in both chambers of Congress, as well as the White House, Democrats for the past year refused to pass a full budget or forward twelve of the appropriations bills that fund the government to the president for his signature.
Because they failed in this most basic function of Congress, lawmakers are… Continue

The Democrat leadership in the U.S. House – the same leadership that led their party to electoral ruin at the polls earlier this month – signaled this week that they will not allow a single vote to extend the Bush tax cuts for every American during the lame duck session of Congress.
President Obama and outgoing Speaker Nancy Pelosi have both argued
that the looming tax hikes on families making more… Continue

Over and over again, at town hall meetings and rallies on the National Mall, the American people asked Democrats in Congress to drop their liberal agenda and focus on getting our economy moving again.
And time and time again, the Democrats in Congress – led by Nancy Pelosi and her leadership team – refused to listen and failed to lead.
Unfortunately, they continue to fail to heed the will of the American people. On the heels of an electoral beating not seen in a midterm… Continue

On November 17, 1800 – exactly 210 years ago to the day – Congress met for the first time in the unfinished U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C.
This week, Nancy Pelosi embarks on her final lame duck session of Congress as Speaker of the U.S. House. At some point in the next few weeks, Pelosi will bang the gavel down one last time as Speaker of the House and prepare to give her chair over to the next Republican Speaker of the House.
Today, it’s worth remembering those… Continue

The verdict rendered by the American people on Election Day was clear – Nancy Pelosi is a failed Speaker of the U.S. House and her agenda was wrong for our country.
The judgment of the people was so loud and clear that more than 60 seats in the U.S. House swung into Republican hands, a midterm election margin of victory not seen since 1938.
Yet Nancy Pelosi has yet to take the hint. Now, even members of her own caucus are joining in as centrist Democrats are reportedly… Continue

The Obama Administration is offering more and more evidence that its federal takeover of health care is flawed to the core and failing the American people.
Last month, the federal Department of Health and Human Services granted several dozen waivers
from provisions in ObamaCare to unions and large corporations who reported that the federal health bill could cause them… Continue

A friend of mine and I have a theory that if we can get past all the rhetoric, most Americans who voted in the last election want the same things. So we've started a little experiment on my blog. Joel has written eight posts -- one for each of what we felt were the most important eight topics during the 2010 mid-term elections:

Last week, millions of Americans exercised their right to self-government by casting their vote at their local ballot box.
We have that right because of the men and women we celebrate today – America’s veterans.
Our rights to free speech, to freedom of religion, and to vote for the leaders that best represent our values are guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution – but they were defended by the men and women who served in our nation’s armed forces. We too often forget that the… Continue

This afternoon, recently fired Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is hosting a reception
for her Democrat colleagues “honoring the accomplishments of the 111th Congress.”
That there will be awkward stares across the punch bowl as Democrats consider the historic defeat they suffered last week as a result of these “accomplishments” goes without saying.… Continue

Ever since I was a little girl I was a Republican, even though at that point I had no idea what it was. The Ideals and Values of the GOP are one's that I strive to up hold, and I agree with whole heartedly. Nov. 2 was my first election, and I was proud to help re-elect Virginia Congressman Rob Wittman from the 1st District :) Let's hope this is a change that we can all believe in... Untill 2012 :)

More and more evidence is emerging that shows that the engine that drove Republicans to an historic victory last Tuesday was the shift of women voters back to Republican candidates compared to results in 2008 and 2006.
A new story in the L.A. Times
today outlines the shift in both married and unmarried women to GOP candidates in 2010 election cycle. According to the story, House Democrats won just… Continue

Earlier this year, a new drug was approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration to treat prostate cancer. The drug, called Provenge, helps a patient’s immune system fight tumors brought on by prostate cancer. According to studies, the drug can extend the lives of patients by about four months.
But according to the decision makers in the federal government who were empowered by ObamaCare to substitute their judgment for that of patients and doctors when it comes to medical… Continue

As the United States began its industrial revolution, unions developed in order to support workers’ rights. Union growth was at its highest in the early 1900s due to support of the US government and businesses. Union advocacy in the past did achieve positive results on certain issues, such as child labor,… Continue

For months, people in the media and political circles predicted that 2010 would become known as the Year of the Republican Woman. On Tuesday night, those predictions came true. The RNC Women’s Program is proud of our female candidates and activists who made this happen.
Almost thirty Republican women were elected on Tuesday night in races for governor, U.S. House and U.S. Senate. This includes four Republican women who were elected governor in their states, one for the U.S. Senate and… Continue
