A bipartisan group of members on the House Ways and Means Oversight Subcommittee have come together to call for repayments to victims of civil asset forfeiture.

Clock is Ticking on Entitlement Programs

Today marks the 50th Anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid, which were signed into law on July 30, 1965 by President Lyndon Johnson. These programs, along with Social Security, are collectively referred to as entitlement programs and are taking up a growing proportion of the annual budget. This problem is overshadowed by an even larger danger for Medicare and Social Security: their trust funds are about to dry up.

Health Regulations Stifle Innovation, Raise Costs

For decades, the costs of providing health care services have escalated. Congress passed ObamaCare, in part, as a supposed way to control these rising costs. However, the health care market was heavily regulated before ObamaCare. The increased regulations from ObamaCare have not prevented costs from rising, they only work to hamper innovations, which lead to bloated costs.

The forecast projects the deficit as a percentage of GDP to increase from below 3 percent, to nearly 6 percent in the next twenty-five years. Over the same time frame, the CBO forecasts national debt to increase to over 100 percent of GDP.

Unfunded State Pensions: The Next Economic Crisis

In the last decade we have had a housing crisis, a banking crisis and a car manufacturing crisis. If student loan debt does not catch up with us first, the next economic crisis is likely to be state and municipality pension debt.

ObamaCare and the Supreme Court Episode IV: A New Hope

The Supreme Court has now largely upheld ObamaCare, with a carve-out from the contraceptive mandate for closely held companies, the first three times the law has been challenged in the Court. Because of this, it is difficult to have much faith that the Court will ever overturn the law based on constitutional concerns. However, there is still another case working its way through the DC Circuit, Sissel v. HHS, challenging ObamaCare based on the Origination Clause.
