We hope you’re having a great Wednesday wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently! It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do. We drink gallons of coffee in an effort to stay awake long enough to scour the far reaches of the world wide web in an effort to bring you the most important, useful and useless information every single day. You’re welcome.
So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Wednesday July 31, 2013.
Avik Roy at the National Review lays the blame for high healthcare costs squarely at the feet of hospitals. Not sure I completely agree, but it’s an interesting argument with some very good information.
Rush Limbaugh is tired of conservatives getting blamed for America’s problems when we don’t actually control anything! Consider it — the Republican Party barely listens to our complaints and ideas, but somehow we are the problem. The leaders of the Party: John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, John McCain are not conservatives… yet, somehow we are to blame for the problems in America? Rush is right – it’s a ridiculous thought.
Anthony Weiner won’t give a straight answer when asked if he’s still sexting.
Governor Sarah Palin is the top choice of Alaska Republicans to replace Senator Mark Begich (D-AK).
The GOP is battling over what their cohesive foreign policy will be, however with one side calling the other “dangerous” for the country it doesn’t seem like any kind of compromise will happen.
Pat Buchanan had some harsh words for the Obama administration over the IRS scandal:
“This is no accident… This is clearly some kind of policy directive and I think it’s going forward as a consequence of basically the vendetta that’s been conducted against the tea party starting back in 2010 where you would have thought listening to television that we’re dealing with people trying to pull off a Beer Hall Putsch. Let me mention now that this idea of a ‘phony scandal’ — It’s not a phony scandal and the president knows it. His numbers are going down. The respect for the IRS is going down. People are following this story. It’s continuing along. But they’re not getting much help from the mainstream media because it doesn’t fit the script.”
The Media continues to bury the IRS Scandal.
Dennis Miller is right.
Can we put a worse face on the GOP than Rove? Maybe Laughton in "HunchRepublican?" He makes the town elders in Footloose look like Zeppelin.
