Forgotten Federalism

Most Americans are aware of very few of their Constitutional rights, or more accurately, Constitutional protections. As kids we try unsuccessfully to "plead the fifth" when mom questions us about the broken lamp and as teenagers, we love to remind our parents of our right to free speech. But aside from these few, there's an unfortunate ignorance about our other protections, in particular the tenth amendment.

Medical Device Tax: Stifling Innovation and Hurting Veterans

It should surprise no one that Obamacare contains numerous time bombs of illogical and destructive policy. One such policy, which has recently gained national attention, is the implementation of a 2.3% medical device tax. This tax applies to any and all medical devices, from crutches to high tech surgical equipment.

The Cavalry Isn’t Coming — States Must Create Their Own Success

I miss the heady days of January 2012, just 12 months ago. Sure, the economy was lousy, GOP primary debates were tedious, and “We Bought a Zoo” was still in theatres. But there was a faint glimmer of hope on the horizon.Conservatives had made huge gains in 2010, the Supreme Court had a decent chance of tossing out Obamacare, and the presidential approval rating was well under 50 percent. If everything broke just right, the GOP could recapture the White House and start to fix the economic damage.

End the Debt Ceiling Shenanigans

Here we go again… The U.S. is expected to hit the $16.4 trillion debt ceiling by the end of February. That means that we can expect more partisan bickering in Washington over whether to raise the debt ceiling—with or without spending cuts. It has now become typical for Washington to stumble from one manufactured crisis to the next instead of fixing the root cause of the problem.

FreedomWorks Busts Myth Of Debt Ceiling And "Not Paying Our Bills"

The repeated refrain from the likes of Paul Krugman and Jay Carney is that we MUST increase the debt limit so that we don't default on the full faith and credit of the United States, and that we continue to pay our bills. Indeed, on Monday, President Obama chastised Congressional Republicans for making spending cuts mandatory in any debt ceiling negotiation:

Spending at Gun Point

In the days leading up to President Obama announcing his gun control plans, and now that he has, the focus of Republicans and Conservatives has been squarely on his ever-encroaching attack on the Second Amendment.  While the important debate over gun rights continues, we should not forget another vastly important detail.

Why Fitch Could Downgrade the U.S. - And Why They're Right to Do So

As with most events in life, timing was everything.  Fitch Ratings, Ltd. released a statement Tuesday announcing its intention to lower the U.S. credit rating unless the Administration and Congress can incorporate responsible fiscal policy (i.e., a balanced budget) into the upcoming debt ceiling debate. The press release took on special meaning in light of the presidential press conference less than 24 hours before, during which Obama pledged to ignore any deals from Congress matching the debt-ceiling increase with equal spending cuts.
