Obama and the Bureaucrazies, Part 2: Health and Human Services

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. He

The Regulatory Review We Need

The White House's call to conduct a regulatory review which focuses only on obsolete and old regulations is hardly worth it; the immediate threat to American jobs are not just old and obsolete regulations which were implemented ten, twenty or thirty years ago, but the near-1000 new rules that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued during the past few months.  The Wall Street Journal  notes:

Welcome 112th Congress—We Must Hold Government Accountable in 2011

Over a century ago, Judge Gideon Tucker first said “no man’s life, liberty or property is safe when the legislature is in session.” Those words still ring true today. As the 112th Congress starts, we should remain watchful but there is some reason for hope. Today, the Constitution was read on the floor of the House for the first time in the history of America.
