Forcing People to Buy Useless, Expensive Insurance is Nothing to Gloat About

A new study from the Urban Institute has supporters of ObamaCare - what few still remain, anyway - touting how successful the law has been. Of course, it all depends on what your definition of “successful” is.

Student Privacy Concerns Add to Common Core Resistance

There are many things to hate about Common Core standards. From convoluted, unsolvable math problems, to an increased reliance on soulless standardized testing, to a lack of local control and adaptation to individual circumstances, just about everyone can find something to object to. One of the most concerning aspects of the program, however, is the invasive collection of personal data from students, an area that has received far too little attention in media discussions of education.

Forget Tech, the Real Anti-Competitive Market is Health Care

With the most recent round of ObamaCare enrollments about to begin, more Americans will soon be faced with the reality of a growing doctor shortage. The Wall Street Journal reports that, for the first time in two generations, the number of doctors per person is declining, a situation that will result in decreased access to health care and rising costs even beyond what we have already seen.

What Could We Get for Christmas for the Cost of the Ex-Im Bank?

As the holiday season approaches, Americans are budgeting for Christmas presents, decorations, cards, and of course, lots of delicious food. At such moments, while we are pinching our pennies to maximize holiday cheer, it’s instructive to remember the ways in which government blows through our tax dollars with reckless abandon.

How the Grassroots are Toppling Common Core

All over the country, grassroots pressure is driving states to ditch the increasingly unpopular Common Core education standards. Politicians are hurriedly backing away from their previous support, and next year’s incoming class of legislators are enthusiastic about reform.

ObamaCare Penalties on the Rise

The least popular feature of ObamaCare is about to become a whole lot less fun. As we head into 2015, the individual mandate dictating that all individuals purchase health insurance or else is ramping up with increased penalties.

Hillary Shills for the Ex-Im Bank

Whether or not Hillary Clinton intends to throw her hat in the three ring circus that will be the 2016 presidential elections remains to be seen, but she’s already getting in plenty of practice cozying up to well-monied special interest groups. In response to a recent question about the Export-Import Bank, Clinton said the following:

Wisconsin to Prioritize Common Core Repeal

As Ohio moves closer to repealing Common Core education standards, Wisconsin looks like it could be next in line. The State Senate Majority Leader, Scott Fitzgerald, has said that tackling Common Core is definitely on the agenda for next year’s legislative session. Fitzgerald has yet to offer any specific proposals, but it’s safe to assume that the changes will be more in line with the school choice platform that Governor Scott Walker ran on to win reelection.

Title II: a New Way to Tax the Internet

Mike O’Rielly, a commissioner at the Federal Communication Commission (FCC), is arguing that President Obama’s new proposal on Net Neutrality will result in an immediate tax on internet service providers (ISPs), which will then be passed on to consumers and result in across the board higher prices. The statement issued by the president contains no language pertaining to anything like a tax, though, so what’s he talking about?
