Progress for Educational Reform in Maine

In the last legislative session, Maine Governor Paul LePage pushed education reform changes to help kids in his state. His agenda included tougher teacher and principal evaluations, and the switch to a proficiency-based high school diploma. The legislature did not, however, pass school choice legislation. Yesterday, a school choice work group in Maine met for the first time to determine if and how school choice will be implemented in Maine.

Replacing ObamaCare: Insurance Across State Lines (Part 1)

Perhaps the most prominent conservative health care reform idea is to allow Americans to buy health insurance across state lines. It’s undoubtedly the GOP’s favorite talking point when it comes to replacing ObamaCare. Not only is it well-known, it’s also pretty popular. The benefits to such a reform are obvious, as any economist will tell you that more competition in a market typically leads to lower prices and higher product quality. It makes intuitive sense to most Americans, and there aren’t any exceedingly obvious reasons to object to the idea.

With Election Day just a little over a month away, partisan bickering is at an all-time high, along with unemployment, inflation, class warfare and our unsustainable debt. Just four years ago, Obama won the race for the White House with a great deal of help from the youth. College students came out in full swing on college campuses all across the country for Obama as they thought he would reduce the debt and bring our troops home.

Obama: Is He Shockingly Uninformed?

As I have previously pointed out, if you can successfully divorce the cool persona from the words he speaks, President Obama plainly and often tells us exactly what he thinks, believes and intends. And when you listen to or read the words he says, it becomes abundantly clear that he is dedicated to a big government solution for every problem - whether real or imaginary.
