RINOcare Is A Disaster

 

It’s been a while since I’ve agreed with the Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol, but he’s spot on here: Indeed, Speaker Paul Ryan (Wisconsin) could do worse than cancel the floor vote today on the American Health Care Act (a.k.a.

RINOcare: It Still Sucks

 

Speaker Paul Ryan’s proposed “American Health Care Act” (a.k.a. RINOcare) got a bit of a makeover on Monday. Now the pig has rouge and eye shadow in addition to lipstick. To be fair, some of the changes are good ones. Amendments that will be added to RINOcare on the floor of the House will (1) prevent […]

The Fate of Paul Ryan’s “American Health Care Act”

 

Will Speaker Paul Ryan’s American Health Care Act (AHCA) ever become law? That seems unlikely, unless it undergoes major changes.

Even If GOP Healthcare Bill Passes, It Is Destined to Fail

 

American Spectator writer David Catron recently warned conservatives and libertarians about having unrealistic expectations about repealing Obamacare.

Norma McCorvey, The Left’s Tragic Mascot

 

When Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in the infamous 1973 Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade, died Feb. 18, this part of her obituary in the Washington Post stood out: Years later, Ms. McCorvey expressed bitterness at what she described as her attorneys’ unwillingness to help her find what she needed — an abortion, even an illegal […]

Finally, School Bathrooms Are Safe From The Federal Government

 

Many thanks to President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos for protecting young school girls and boys. On Wednesday they rescinded the absurd letter from the Obama administration that allowed boys to use the girls’ bathroom as long as they “identified” as a girl. The letter purported to prohibit “discrimination based […]

Make Corporate Welfare Great Again?

 

If President Trump is serious about “draining the swamp,” then he can’t go soft on a government agency like the Export-Import Bank that benefits big business and their lobbyists and regularly generates a plethora of campaign cash for both Republicans and Democrats in Congress. The Ex-Im Bank provides loans to foreign governments wanting to purchase […]
