Big Labor’s Card Check is Bad News for Workers

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

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

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

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

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.

What Transition Costs?

WASHINGTON -- In the more than 41 years that I have been writing columns, nothing has generated more unfavorable comment from conservatives than my Dec. 6 report on Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham's Social Security plan. He would finance the transition costs for private Social Security accounts by raising payroll taxes. Of all the outraged critics from the Right who contacted me, economist Larry Hunter had the most pungent rebuttal: "There are no transition costs."

What about a second term?

As the Republican National Convention approaches, pressure is building on President Bush to lay out a second term agenda. With John Kerry running no worse than even in most polls, many Republicans believe that Bush needs a big idea of some kind to galvanize his supporters. I think they are probably going to be disappointed.
