Hiding Behind Children: Democrats are using issue of children’s health to disguise expensive regulation

On June 8, 2011 the Senate committee on environment and public works held a joint hearing titled, “Air Quality and Children’s Health.” Senator Thomas Carper opened the hearing by declaring his grave concern for the health of America’s children, “As a parent, I’ve spent a lot of time worrying about my own children’s health. As a U.S.

The Hidden Cost of Regulation

The Federal Register is the document that compiles all the federal rules and regulations that businesses are required to comply with. As of 2010 the Federal Register was 81,405 pages long. Federal regulations serve as a hidden tax on the economy. Costs imposed by regulation do not end up on any Federal budget, nor do they add to the national deficit. However, 81,405 pages of regulations strain the economy by creating huge costs that business are obligated to meet.

Leviathan vs. Bunny

          Thomas Hobbes, a seventeenth century political philosopher, advocated in his famous work Leviathan that the fundamental role of government is to protect its citizens.  A fine goal to be certain but where does one draw the line for what is acceptable protection and what is unnecessary?  It has become more and more evident that the current systems in place unnecessarily restrict our liberties more than offer us any real protection.  The United States Department of Agriculture is just one example of one of those unnecessary

Tangled in the “Grapevine”: Obama caught campaigning on misinformation?

President Obama stopped in Annandale, Virginia this week to hold a town hall meeting with students and staff at Northern Virginia Community College.  He made some particularly interesting remarks in an attempt to connect the coal industry to the disease asthma.  In an attempt to defend greater regulation of coal based electric power production, the president claimed that coal emissions can cause the disease asthma.  This is simply not true as the actual cause of the disease is unknown.

Obama and the BureaucraziesPart 2Health and Human Services and Styrene In late 2009, recently inaugurated President Obama stayed in campaign mode, making trips across the country to promote his $800 billion plus economic stimulus package.  The president made one town in particular his ground zero for the economic recovery: Elkhart, Indiana.  At the time, Elkhart had the nation’s highest unemployment rate, in the neighborhood of 15 percent.  Obama visited the town to make a major speech on the stimulus bill and continued to reference the dire situation the

Education Reform or Business as Usual?

Randi Weingarten’s interview in the Wall Street Journal was disappointing but not surprising.  As the leader of the American Teachers’ Federation, the second most powerful teacher’s union in America, Weingarten revealed herself to be a staunch  defender of the status quo.  She doesn’t argue that kids are getting a sufficient education (that is becoming increasingly difficult), but she stood firmly against anything that might reverse the trend.
