Return of the Son of the Ex-Im Bank

The U.S. Export-Import Bank is the poster child for the problem of special interests in politics. The 80-year-old program may seem like small potatoes compared to the massive spending projects that are bankrupting the country, but from the fevered panic of some of the country’s’ largest firms, you’d think this one Bank is the only thing propping up the American economy.

Throwing Money at Education a Proven Failure

Leave it government to never, ever learn from its mistakes. Since the establishment of the U.S. Department of Education in 1979, the go-to solution for all things education related has been federal dollars piled atop more federal dollars. But for a Department so fixated on testing and results, it's remarkable how demonstrable failures are either extended or replicated without end. Race to the Top, Head Start, and No Child Left Behind have poured billions into schooling, without the promised improvements in student achievement. Across the country, the school districts that spend the most per child have the worst results, with the District of Columbia being among the worst offenders.

Nine and Counting: More ObamaCare Co-Ops Fold

Once upon a time, ObamaCare created 23 non-profit health insurance co-ops that were supposed to increase coverage while reducing costs. Doesn't that sound nice? Well, this is a good time to keep in mind the old saying "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."

Here's Why the U.S. Can't Default

Tick-tock, the debt ceiling deadline is fast approaching, leading, as ever, to the fevered warnings of default from the advocates of endless spending in and around the Beltway. It can't be said often enough: default on the national debt isn't going to happen. In fact, it's all but impossible.

The Next Speaker Must Do Something about Spending

With Paul Ryan still sitting squarely on the fence about whether or not he will run for Speaker of the House, the Republican leadership elections still remain largely up in the air. There has so far been a troubling inability of the conference to identify a suitable candidate who embodies the values that are important to an open congressional process, and who could garner enough support to actually win the election.

On Debt, the Ceiling Is Less Important Than What's Underneath

The ever-shifting horizon on when the federal government is scheduled to reach its borrowing limit has most recently been set at November 3rd, just days after John Boehner is scheduled to resign his office. What this means is that no new leadership will save us from yet another increase in the debt ceiling, although there will always be a principled few who will want to resist.

Obama’s ‘Behavioral Data’ Order Has Sinister Implications

If I had to sum up the Obama administration in a single word, I think that word would be “arrogance.” The president has always regarded himself as the smartest guy in the room, an ego that has been relentlessly stroked by the press and the people he surrounds himself with. He has refused to work with Congress, preferring instead to dictate his agenda to them and expect absolute compliance, or else. He opines about national news before knowing the facts. He expects foreign leaders to bend to the force of his personality in lieu of actual negotiations. He even promised to roll back the tides and heal the planet, as if Mother Nature herself would bow to his raw charisma and mighty intellect.

Of Course Government Has Too Much Power

According to a new report from Gallup polling, 60 percent of Americans think the federal government has too much power. This is the highest number recorded since Gallup began asking the question in 2002, and is tied with only one other year, 2013.

ObamaCare Deductibles Keep on Soaring

Over the past year or so, I’ve expended considerable ink on the underreported problem of ObamaCare deductibles. What few people understand about insurance is that you don’t get a dime from the insurer until you pay the deductible amount out of pocket. Until then, you might as well not be covered. So, when people see low premiums and fancy coverage options, they could be getting sucked into what is actually a bad deal - a deductible they will never be able to reach.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership: Pros and Cons

After a decade of negotiations between a dozen different countries, it appears that the Trans-Pacific Partnership is finally ready for review and an eventual vote by the Senate, likely to come in January. The deal is controversial, which is unsurprising given its length and complexity, but based on what we know of it so far, there is plenty to comment on.
