Sebelius: I Never Said Anything About Achieving 7 Million Enrollees by the End of March

Either she’s lying, because she sees the failure of Obamacare, or she just has a really bad memory. She said that she never said anything about trying to get 7 million people to enroll in Obamacare exchanges by the end of March. She claimed that was a CBO figure and that she didn’t even know where they got it. In an interview with HuffPost Live, she stated, according to CNS News: “First of all, 7 million was not the administration. That was a CBO Congressional Budget Office prediction Read more […]

This Is How We Reach Our Detroit Destiny

According to Politico.com, this time the conservatives are about to start a financial crisis: “The prevailing view: When Congress returns in September, sabers will be rattled and threats will be hurled. But then, as usual, Washington will grind out a crummy deal that keeps the federal lights on and avoids a disastrous default.” Not true this time: “The House GOP is hopelessly fractured on spending strategy. Senate Republicans who might otherwise broker a deal face primary challenges that Read more […]

Don’t Let College Professors Tell You There Is No Diploma Bubble

The cost of college education is climbing into the heavens and the employment prospects and wage rates for college graduates are not keeping up.

Democrats Grow Increasingly Desperate During Scandalpalooza

This sense is innate in some people and cultivated in others; but generally speaking, human beings can detect desperation from a mile away. We see it every day. The real skill comes in figuring out the reason in the madness. Desperation emerges Read more […]

Diagnosis: Obama’s Clinical Denial

Ayn Rand said it best when she said: “The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody has decided not to see.” Now, replace the word “everybody” with “Obama,” and you have a perfect quote, describing our times, specifically the recent fiscal cliff deal, and the upcoming debt ceiling fire-fight. A large part of what makes up the Democrat thought process seems to be an outright denial of basic facts: economic, social, military, etc. They deny that Iran is a real threat, Read more […]

The Shooting The Liberal Media Won’t Tell You About

I had in mind something to write about today. I was going to write about Obama and the “rich;” about how his desired upper-income tax hike amounts to nothing more than Obama positioning himself as a Robin Hood figure in the eyes of the less fortunate, while simultaneously taxing them to death. But then a news story caught my attention. Something very important happened just two days after the disturbing shooting in Connecticut: another shooting. Why is it so important? Because the national media Read more […]
