A new analysis of the second stimulus
bill being prepared by Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat colleagues in the U.S. House shows that it will make the same mistakes as the first $862 billion stimulus bill and provide about as much benefit to the American people.

The media and the pundits too often don’t give enough credit to the American people. The media tell us who is right, who is wrong, and who to vote for. But the American people are tough to fool, and they know what they want. Increasingly, through elections such as the one that put Scott Brown in Ted Kennedy’s seat or the one that sent Charles Djou to Congress from President Obama’s home congressional… Continue

During the course of the debate over ObamaCare, it became clear that one of Barack Obama’s and Nancy Pelosi’s favorite tricks was a legislative shell game. They would promise Republicans a seat at the table, pander to the media that they were soliciting Republican ideas, but at the end of the day they would write the bill behind closed doors and force votes on it without giving adequate time for members of Congress to read the text of the legislation before voting on it.
That same… Continue

Internal documents from some of the country's largest employers show what we have known to be true for months - ObamaCare will cause many Americans to lose the coverage they have whether they like it or not.
One of the many "revenue enhancements" contained within the health care legislation is a provision that eliminated a company's right to deduct the federal retiree drug-benefit subsidy from their corporate taxes. Following the bill's signing ceremony, several major companies… Continue

In 2004, as Dean of the Harvard Law School, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan fought to ban military recruiters from Harvard’s campus and prevent them from using the university’s career center. Reasonable people should feel comfortable in asking if this is the kind of person who should be confirmed to sit on the nation’s highest court.
Citing “don’t ask, don’t tell,” Kagan took these steps because she felt the military did not adhere to Harvard’s strict non-discrimination policy.… Continue

Buried in the depths of the nearly thousand pages that make up the ObamaCare legislation are provisions to provide enforcement mechanisms for the president’s health care takeover. And the muscle behind that enforcement looks to be about 16,000 new IRS agents.
