Arkansas has failed to redetermine the eligibility of Medicaid enrollees, putting taxpayers on the hook for millions of dollars

Arkansas' experiment with Medicaid expansion under ObamaCare is quickly becoming a train wreck for taxpayers. State officials have failed to determine that beneficiaries of the program are still eligible to participate in the government health insurance program, potentially wasting millions of dollars.

IRS, Justice Department ignore civil asset forfeiture policy changes to target an innocent North Carolina business owner

Lyndon McLellan is the owner of a convenience store in Fairmont, North Carolina, a small town just up I-95 from the state's border with South Carolina.

New report details how the Justice Department encourages abuse of civil asset forfeiture

Southern California is known for many things: Hollywood, the Los Angeles Dodgers, a great punk rock scene, and amazing weather.
