Harry Reid Holds NIH Funding Hostage

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) responded to a question about funding for children's cancer research by asking, "Why would we do that?" Republicans pounced on the remark as evidence that Reid cared less for sick children than for his own partisan position. While Reid tried to recover from the gaffe, what he says he really meant was just as bad, or perhaps worse: he wanted to fund cancer trials, but wouldn't unless the House accepted everything else he wanted. In effect, he is holding every program hostage until he gets his way.

Government Shutdown: Hold the Line, the Media Wasn't Going to Like Us Anyway

As we spent the last few weeks chugging inexorably toward the Great Shutdown Showdown of '13, we were constantly warned by our betters in the GOP to avoid it at all costs because "ZOMG THE PRESS WILL SAY BAD STUFF AND...STUFF!" Those of is operating in a more reality-based corner of the planet asked ourselves, "When do they ever say anything good about us?" Ad then the crickets became rather deafening.

Seven Pictures from the WWII Memorial Shutdown

They don't call these men the "Greatest Generation" for nothing. They fought back the Nazis in Germany and defended their nation against the Kamikaze pilots of Japan. They weren't about to let a few barricades at their WWII Memorial stop them from paying tribute to their fellow servicemen who gave their lives for their nation.

Department of Education is 94 Percent Non-Essential Employees

The federal government is now into its second day of being shut down, which means different things for different people. For the average American, not much is going to change. However, there is one governmental department which touches many (too many, some would argue) lives: The Department of Education. The question is will a government shutdown really make a difference to the majority of American families who have school age children?

White House Bullies WWII Vets at Washington Memorial

With the shutdown in full effect, national parks and monuments are closed. You can't go to Yellowstone, and tours of the Washington Monument have been suspended. However, one monument in particular has been singled out by the White House to be closed, barricaded and guarded to make a point and an extreme one at that.

The Government Shutdown: Who is really to Blame?

The fight to defund Obamacare has been heating up quite a bit recently.  As the battle over the current Continuing Resolution to fund the government comes to a head, the Democrats in the Senate have lobbed many serious accusations against conservatives.

Ted Cruz and the American Team

Senator Ted Cruz took to the floor of the US Senate yesterday just shortly after 2:30pm ET. His primary goals were to highlight the failures of ObamaCare, reading examples from real people all over America and talk about the importance of removing the funding for Obamacare. Senator Cruz spoke about the effect Obamacare on the American Dream -- and that people scared of standing up for their beliefs should remember how much more difficult things can be if they don't.
