An elegant ObamaCare solution

What D.C. politicians are missing is the most elegant and honest solution of them all to the anticipated King v. Burwell conundrum.

Republicans Surrender, Nation Worse Off

Republicans Surrender, Nation Worse Off

By rejecting the tough choices this week, Senate Republicans have guaranteed a future President will face much more difficult budget choices, as they try to explain how their actions support smaller, more responsive government, a claim that those who pay attention will find harder and harder to believe.

Now is the Time to Fight for Freedom

It is not delusional to expect elected officials to keep their word. When a politician says they will fight tooth and nail for something, it is reasonable to expect that they will.
