The Gospel of Gore

BY Amanda Carpenter

If Al Gore wore a high-collared black suit instead of a polo shirt and jeans to the Washington, D.C. Live Earth concert, he might have been mistaken for a preacher. He gave a brief sermon Saturday, July 7 on global warming with a solemn opening. “Today we are gathered on all seven continents and eight giant concerts and in 10,000 other gatherings, many as large as this one, two billion people, we are gathered, with one message.”

The Real Skinny on Socialized Medicine

BY Matt Kibbe

“I'm the thinnest f@#king guy in town!" --Michael Moore (Rolling Stone 9/17/04) In his new film Sicko, Michael Moore makes it clear that he is a big fan of government-run health care. He may in fact be one of the biggest fans of socialized medicine in America, given his well-documented penchant for donuts and double Quarter-Pounders with cheese.

Big Labor Pushes for Big Payback

BY Amanda Carpenter

Big Labor bussed thousands of activists to Capitol Hill Tuesday to lobby for the Employee Free Choice Act—an act union leaders have called their top legislative priority for the 110th Congress. Event organizers claimed they brought 2,000 participants on 62 busses from the Campaign for America’s Future’s “Take Back America” conference to the Upper Senate Park. There, a parade of Democratic congressmen and senators delivered hard-line progressive rhetoric to their pro-union advocates.

Obama's HillaryCare

BY Amanda Carpenter

On the heels of Hillary Clinton’s speech on universal health care last week, Barack Obama promised he would provide health insurance to every American by the end of his first term as President today. Like Hillary, Obama supports seizing the Bush tax cuts to pay for his plan and forcing insurance providers to enroll high-risk clients.

Big Labor’s Card Check is Bad News for Workers

BY Matt Kibbe

The political pendulum is swinging with full force towards the powerful interests who helped elect the new congressional majority. Those interests favor big government and a command and control economy. First up, the Democrat controlled Congress is using their new power to propose a bonanza of legislation to try to save big labor. If they succeed, American workers will pay the price.

Exporting America

BY Matt Kibbe

Imagine it is the year 2025, and you are walking through a sea of professionals, crossing downtown streets quickly in dark business suits, talking on whatever futuristic device has replaced Blackberries. Construction cranes, new condo buildings, modern skyscrapers and help wanted signs are evidence of a booming economy, individual opportunity and a low unemployment.

The Democrat Agenda

BY Matt Kibbe

As Election Day approaches, more Americans are paying attention to the developing Democrat agenda, in hopes that there is a better alternative to Tom DeLay, Jack Abramoff, Duke Cunningham and the seemingly unrestrained growth of government witnessed under recent Republican rule. The 109th Congress has overseen the largest expansion in federal spending in years. Democrats are pledging to “do better,” and we want to believe that it could be true. Unfortunately, their vision looks even less satisfying than Republican rule in practice.

UNC Administrators Lie to Preacher

BY Mike Adams

Dear Pastor Chris: First of all, I want to thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to drive almost 150 miles to meet with Chancellor Rosemary DePaolo in order to discuss anti-Christian bigotry at UNC-Wilmington. Given that you have people to visit in the hospital and ongoing construction to oversee at your church, I know your time is precious. I’m just sorry Chancellor DePaolo didn’t show up for the face-to-face meeting you had been promised. Although Dr. DePaolo decided that another meeting needed her attention, I am pleased to hear that she sent two of her special assistants and another administrator to meet with you.

Care about Your Cable Bill?

Around the Townhall.com office these days, most mentions of “nets” are part of our NCAA basketball trash-talking (or groaning, in my case). In the larger policy world, however, I’m hearing a number of conservative groups warning about the dangers of “net neutrality.”

Uncle Sam and the Bed Pan Question

BY Matt Kibbe

Health care costs continue to skyrocket nationwide, driving up government spending at double digit rates and hurting American economic competitiveness. But, instead of addressing this crisis head on by passing medical malpractice tort reform and pro-competition policies like medical savings accounts, the federal health care bureaucracy is getting ready to add new mandates and regulations that will further drive up the cost of providing health care. The latest onerous regulation is Hospital CAHPS (HCAPHS), which will pile unnecessary new burdens on our nation's hospitals with no discernable benefit. HCAHPS is a survey on hospital care dreamed up by Medicare and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). Bureaucrats at these two departments have decided that all hospitals participating in Medicare—virtually every one in the nation—should "voluntarily" post patient responses to a new quality survey on the Medicare website. It is an exercise in regulatory overkill that expert after expert has indicated will actually hinder its supposed goal.
