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.

Detroit Needs Responsible Government, Not a Bailout

I attend Hillsdale College in southern Michigan. It’s a pleasant place, the people are friendly, the landscape of the college is beautiful, and the academic rigor is intellectually stimulating. Some of the things that I’ve learned since becoming a temporary Michigander are that  the weather is utterly and truly unpredictable, that Ohio State fans are worst people on earth (their words, not mine), and that native Michiganders insist that “soda” is something you bake with and “pop” is the thing you drink. (They’re wrong.)

Obamacare: A Tax on the Poor

The Obamacare individual mandate will disproportionately affect those who can least afford it. Rather than simply allow people to buy health insurance if they wish to do so, the "Affordable Care Act" imposes a fine if you don't. But for many people without means, the insurance, even with subsidies, will be too expensive. The law amounts to a tax on being poor -- a Poor Tax.

Obamacare Will Harm Everyone. Do Not Fund It. Repeal It.

Many have said that once Obamacare gets rolling and the subsidies start flowing that repealing the law will be impossible. In fact, that's become conventional wisdom.

Establishment Republicans Surrender: See Whether Your Senators Voted to Fund ObamaCare Here!

Last week, Republicans in the House of Representatives, under great pressure from their constituents, came together and passed a Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the federal government, but which disallowed any funding for ObamaCare. This afternoon, Republicans the U.S. Senate betrayed their House colleagues and their constituents by voting to send the CR back the House with funding for ObamaCare.

Big Government, Small Citizen

This past weekend I had the privilege of attending a discussion with authors and radio hosts Dennis Prager and Hugh Hewitt. While the Sunday talk highlighted faith and culture over politics, Prager did share his oft-quoted maxim, "the bigger the government, the smaller the citizen."
