There’s No Such Thing as a Free Launch

"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there'd be a shortage of sand." — Milton FriedmanAs President Obama took office in 2009, I sold electronic health records, which track a patient’s medical history by computer instead of by hand. For a couple of decades, companies like mine had helped medical providers save money while they improved their patients’ quality of care. Once we installed and launched EHR software at a doctor’s office or hospital, it was a win for everyone.

Supermarket Retailers: Washington Regulations Have Us "Under Attack"

Washington's sweeping regulations for the food retail industry seem too tough to swallow for some business leaders, as retailers and consumers alike can expect higher costs for a government program that will contribute little to its stated goal - improving food safety.A recent gathering known as the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) Midwinter Conference saw major executives in the supermarket business challenge the administration to recognize that burdensome regulations do not necessarily equate to progress for industry safety.

Health Care Exchanges, Round 2

As I wrote in December, the fight over ObamaCare is far from over, and Round 1 went to the states.  So far, 27 states have resisted ObamaCare by refusing to participate in setting up a health care exchange, the bureaucratic mechanism for implementing the health care law.  See below:

Yet Again, HHS Secretary Sebelius Extends ObamaCare State "Exchanges" Deadline

The more forgiving amongst us may feel some genuine pity for Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. On one hand, President Barack Obama loaded her department with the mammoth task of writing up the thousands of rules and regulations that will constitute the real weight of ObamaCare. On the other, he charged Secretary Sebelius with the even more onerous duty of convincing a (rightfully) skeptical American public that the new 2,801 page health care reform law represented a landmark achievement that would benefit all citizens. So far, this hasn't gone so well.

Sandy: Log-Rolling from Alaska to New Jersey

The House of Representatives passed the second installment of the Hurricane Sandy bailout Tuesday night, as Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) brought up a bill he knew would pass without support from his own party. That allowed conservatives to vote against a bill that conservative groups were adding to their legislative scorecards.The path of the bill has been marked by one consistent strawman argument: opposition has been cast as opposition to relief, rather than opposition to the corrupt spending accompanying it.

EPA Failing to Enforce Their Own Rules to Prevent Fraud

The inefficiency of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) at enforcing their very own rules designed to curb fraud and government waste, is costing companies millions.  Some experts predict that such fraud will only grow into the new year. Nowhere is this more apparent than within the bureaucratic nightmare that is the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).
