HillaryCare and ObamaCare are both prescriptions for failure

Fourteen years ago when she was First Lady Hillary Clinton unloaded a health-care plan on the country. Complex, confusing, and restrictive, the thousand-page proposal outlined a radical overhaul of the nation’s health system, and a small band of grassroots activists quickly rose up to successfully oppose it. At 1,342 pages, it was the Hindenburg of health-care plans, and it went down in just as grand a fashion. Now Clinton is back with yet another health care plan, and she has learned some lessons.

Ensure Responsible Drinking of Beer, Wine and Spirits

BY George McGovern/Dick Armey

If you were to review our careers in political life, we are sure there are only a handful of things we would agree on: (1) The sun rises in the East and sets in the West. (2) April 15 is Tax Day even though we have differing opinions on the tax itself. (3) On Jan. 20, 2009, there will be a new president in the White House. (4) And our days in the Senate and House, respectively, were some of our proudest. We also agree on a topic important to all of us: We must take every step possible to ensure responsible drinking of beer, wine and spirits.

School choice back in play in Florida

The Taxation and Budget Reform Commission (TBRC) has almost resurrected Opportunity Scholarships in Florida. Not satisfied with a little success, the TBRC followed this effort with a second entry to be placed on the November Ballot on school spending, by mandating 65% of school spending would be require to be spent in the classroom. The TBRC meets once every 20 years to consider placing issues on the November Ballot to be considered for the Constitution.

That's the Way the Cookie Crumbles

Peter Swire of the Center for American Progress is urging Congress to enact technical measures that enable users to opt out of online cookies—typically invisible and unobtrusive digital trackers which send information about a user's behavior back to their hosts. This isn't a new thing for Swire; previously, he's complained that current technologies used to block tracking cookies are too difficult. But what's worth noting here is the Center for American Progress's own policy on cookies:

Public Know Nothings

BY Peter Suderman

Congressmen are notoriously confused by technology issues. A few years ago, Sen. Ted Stevens took up the issue of net neutrality. Then the chairman of the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee, he explained to a no-doubt rapt Congressional audience that the Internet was 1) "not a big truck" but 2) was instead "a series of tubes."

Monuments to Bureaucracy

Calls for regulation almost always mean well. but Congress doesn't tend to make minor tweaks and tiny fixes.  This AP piece in the Politico makes the point well:

Bipartisan Approach Can Help End Waste

BY Rep. Marsha Blackburn

This past week in Shelby County, I signed my name to the FreedomWorks earmark pledge. In so doing, I promised to step away from the earmark process for the current appropriations cycle. This follows a decision I made in March not to submit earmark request to the Appropriations Committee.

Taxes and the Times

The New York Times takes a stand: Taxes must go higher!  How bold, how tough-minded, how serious, how... utterly, utterly predictable.  The editorial is right that the candidates are all making spending promises they can't keep, and that the budget has been mismanaged.
