A Democrat, a Republican and an Independent Plead for Responsible Governance – Reduce the Debt and End the Corruption

Over 2,000 years ago, Polybius observed the beginning of the decline of Rome.  Polybius foresaw the politicians' lust for power would result in deterioration and decline:

The Broken Windows of Chelyabinsk

Early Friday morning a meteor screamed from the sky, creating a jagged contrail and exploding over a city in Russia’s Ural mountains. Several dashboard cameras captured the amazing descent, while handheld cams recorded the jarring boom that seemed to set off every car alarm in central Asia.The footage taught me three important facts:

Sequester: Insincerity and Mendacity

Democracy and Power 108: ObfuscationWherever politics intrudes upon economic life, political success is readily attained by saying what people like to hear rather than what is demonstrably true. Instead of safeguarding truth and honesty, the state then tends to become a major source of insincerity and mendacity. —Hans F. Sennholz

"Final" Deadline Arrives for Health Insurance Exchanges, Majority of States Still Resisting ObamaCare

Today marked what was to be the final deadline for states to submit their plans for a state-federal partnership to set up a health insurance exchange in order to comply with ObamaCare.  However, with 27 states currently refusing to set up their own exchange, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) now finds itself needing to set up its own exchange in each of these states before the statutorily mandated October 1st deadline.

The Cruelty of the Minimum Wage

In his State of the Union speech Tuesday, President Obama called for an increase in the federal minimum wage, gloating that it had been endorsed even by his vanquished moderate Republican opponent in the 2012 campaign. A minimum wage increase is not needed, and would harm those it's supposed to help.

President Obama's Minimum Wage Hike Proposal Will Harm The Poor

In Tuesday's State of the Union Address, President Obama proposed raising the federally mandated minimum wage to $9 per hour, a 24% increase over the current mandate. In a subsequent conversation, my friend David Guenther of the Texas Public Policy Foundation made a good point about the effects of this if it were to come to pass:

Labor Unions and Mandatory Dues

Many public and private sector labor unions require mandatory dues from their members or a fee from non-members within the same workplace.  This policy harkens back to a time when union membership was compulsory.  Under the Wagner Act of 1935, employers were forced to collectively bargain with employees under its purview whether they were unionized or not.  This act spurred union membership by 55%, but this alone was not enough.

Obama Proceeds with Caution on Cybersecurity

Largely drowned out by media coverage of the State of the Union address Tuesday night was the simultaneous release of an executive order entitled “Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity.” In a nutshell, the order paves the way for an information sharing program between government and private industry, in order to assess and address threats to cybersecurity.

Details of the Democrats' Ten-Month Sequester-Delay Plan

The Senate Democratic Leadership offered a plan yesterday that would delay the sequester through January 2, 2014 (a ten-month postponement) and would “pay for” this delay of spending reductions with a set of new tax hikes and alternative spending trims.
