The Minimum Wage is Still a Bad Idea

There’s quite a bit on Congress’s to do list entering this new year, especially with the 2014 midterms looming. Discontent with Democrats continues to grow as implementation of the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, reveals the entire law to be something akin to a scheme hatched by Wile E. Coyote. With that, Democrats, with the help of some progressive Republicans worried about their own hides, have turned to a good populist ploy: the minimum wage.

Expect More of the Same From Obamacare in 2014

When the Obama Administration quietly announced a year delay in the Obamacare employer mandate on the eve of the 4th of July, it came as a big surprise. But knowing what we do now about the nonfunctional nature of the healthcare.gov backend, it's completely unsurprising that they delayed the employer mandate. In 2014, expect delays, waivers, and unconstitutional ad hoc changes to Obamacare and other laws to continue.

Happy New Year! Five Ways the Government Is Already On Your Case in 2014

There are but hours left in 2013, which a full two thirds of Americans described as the "worst year ever." Actually, I'm not sure of that exact number, but I was among the ones that did. Thanks, Obamacare! Anyway, lest you think you're leaving all of the bad stuff behind while you're celebrating the end of the year with stuffed lobster, champagne and terrible decisions, the government has already started in on making your life miserable in 2014. And ready or not, as of midnight, here it comes. 1. The Obamacare Insurance Tax

New Year's Resolution: No More Zombie Tax Loopholes

While tonight is New Year’s Eve for the rest of the country, inside the Beltway over the last few years December 31st has been akin to the Night of the Living Dead. Not because worn out Capitol Hill staff and interns wander the streets in a drunken stupor (though this is an accurate assessment), but because dozens of tax extenders set to expire at year’s end are usually reauthorized in bulk by Congress.

Privatize the TSA

As the holiday travel season draws to a close, many people are getting their second yearly hand of love from the Transportation Security Administration. A better solution to air travel security is to privatize the TSA. Let each airline and airport decide, and fund, its own security.

Obamacare Sign Up Deadline Delayed for the Holidays

In order to get young people to buy the Obamcare Exchange health insurance plans, the Obama Administration dictated to insurance companies a new deadline of December 24, Christmas Eve, for policies to be effective January 1. At the same time, over the weekend the President went through a botched PR rollout of his own, enrolling in the DC Exchange. These games will continue, and probably become worse, once the law is in full effect next week.

Obama Administration Admits Obamacare Doesn't Work

The Obama Administration has finally admitted what we have been saying all along: Obamacare doesn't work. Unfortunately their remedy is not good enough -- delaying the individual mandate for some, but not for all.

Is The Judiciary Finding Its Voice?

In several recents decisions, and active cases, the Judicial Branch appears to be coming to its collective senses and restraining the unconstitutional expansion of government's already unsustainable power. Whether it's the NSA's invasion of our privacy, the disregard for religious liberty under Obamacare, or the $800 billion tax increase levied by the IRS, judges seem to be saying enough is enough.

Open The Obamacare Source Code

Much of the programming of the healthcare.gov was copied from other people. That's not a scandal, because the original creators of the software licensed it for public use. But it should be a scandal that any of the code for the site is hidden away from public view and inspection under the guise of security.All of the code for healthcare.gov should be freely available to the public.

The Unemployment Rate: Obama's Inadvertent "Mission Accomplished" Moment

This morning the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), an office within the Department of Labor, announced the unemployment rate for November 2013. As currently calculated, the unemployment rate has indeed fallen to 7.0 percent. The problem is that since the national economy has deteriorated to such a severe degree over the past half-decade the BLS calculations have become a wildly inaccurate way to gauge the health of the broader economy.
