Obama’s climate agreement with Beijing? ‘Bad deal’ for U.S.

While in Beijing, President Barack Obama announced the U.S. would move faster in cutting its levels of pollution. China, which accounts for about 30 percent of global emissions, has agreed to cap its emissions in the future. That’s where Tom Borelli, senior fellow for FreedomWorks, sees a problem.

Will We Finally Get a Vote on Audit in the Fed in the Senate?

Last week, Republicans won control over the Senate in the mid-term elections. I’m personally glad that Harry Reid is no longer Senate Majority Leader but I’m still skeptical on whether Republican leadership will be serious about cutting spending. I hope that they prove me wrong.

Another video has surfaced in which Jonathan Gruber insults voters. This time, however, the MIT economist and ObamaCare architect refrained from calling Americans "stupid," though there isn't much of a difference from what he said in previous comments (covered here and here).

Make that two times ObamaCare's architect called American voters "stupid"

Earlier this week, President Obama issued a statement encouraging the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to adopt stricter rules on Net Neutrality, a regulation that requires internet service providers (ISPs) to treat all web content equally. But the president, like most supporters of Net Neutrality, fails to understand how the internet actually works.
