The Minimum Wage Doesn’t Help the Poor, It Traps Them

Republicans hate the poor. Why else would they consistently oppose increases to the minimum wage? This is the progressive drumbeat that we have heard year in and year out for as long as anyone can remember, and will continue to hear as Congress tries to push for $10.10 federal minimum wage later this year. But a fallacy can only persist for so long before reality starts to catch up. It’s time to put this talking point to rest once and for all. The myth that higher minimum wages help the poor has finally run its course.

Nullifying the Law of the Land

“It’s the law of the land.” This has been the repeated refrain from defenders of ObamaCare against any effort to repeal, replace, or reform the disastrous policy that is causing millions of Americans to lose their existing health insurance and experience drastic, unexpected premium hikes.

Setting the Record Straight on McConnell

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has a bone to pick with the tea party. Speaking in an interview not too long ago, he groused that conservatives under the tea party label are ruining the Republican brand and that their continued influence poses unacceptable risks to the upcoming elections in 2014.

IRS Regulations Disrespect the Political Process

Perhaps the most striking thing about the last five years under the Obama administration has been the “win at any cost” strategy employed by the White House, and the Senate under the leadership of Harry Reid. Rather than the tried and true tactics of bipartisan negotiation and building consensus, the new normal for Washington insiders has been to ram through whatever initiatives they like by whatever means possible.

Why the IRS Should Not Be in Charge of ObamaCare

The recent revelation that the IRS was engaged in targeting political groups based on ideology has put a spotlight on the unchecked power and scope of that organization. Yet, in 2014, the IRS will assume control over vital functions of ObamaCare - and, therefore, your health care.The following is a breakdown of how the IRS will be able to meddle with your health care, and why this is a terrible idea.  These points are available in a handy printout at the bottom this post.

Ten Reasons The IRS Should Not Be In Charge of ObamaCare

The IRS has been in the news a lot lately, but with all the hubbub of corruption and scandal, it’s easy to forget that they are also the agency set to be put in charge of enforcing and implementing the Affordable Care Act, colloquially known as ObamaCare, when it goes into full effect later this year. Here, then, are the top ten reasons why this should not be allowed to happen.

The Rise of the Professional Amateur

The world is changing, and the advance of technology has reached an amazing rate. Still more amazing, however, is the way in which technology results in ever more decentralized knowledge and ability, allowing individuals from every walk of life unprecedented access to formerly restrictive fields. The 3D printing process has been in the news a lot lately owing its potential to put manufacturing directly into the hands of consumers and the implications of such a change for the future, but this sort of thing is hardly new.

Putting the Reins on Regulatory Authority

Over the past decade or so, there has been significant growth in the powers delegated to the unelected heads of regulatory agencies, colloquially known as “czars.” At last count, the Obama Administration has amassed 45 of these positions, more than any of his predecessors and all without the accountability of elected office.

The Fed Cannot Employ, It Can Only Inflate

Paul Krugman is at it again. The Nobel Prize-winning, devoutly Keynesian economist argued in a recent column that the thing needed to cure the sluggish American economy is, wait for it, more inflation. This is the classic Keynesian view that the Federal Reserve can stimulate the economy by inflating the currency.
