    Stop the Spending Now

    Federal spending is out of control. Even President Obama knows it.  To really stop the madness, Reps. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), Mike Pence (R-IN), and John Campbell (R-CA) have proposed a simple solution – a constitutional amendment capping federal spending at 20 percent of the economy. Their proposal puts the debate … More

    New China Space Milestone an Opening for the U.S.

    Morning Bell: Obamacare's Kabuki End Game

    The doctors in lab coats surrounding President Barack Obama as he gave his latest health care speech yesterday were not there to give the President a physical; that happened Sunday. No, these doctors were props, dressed to impress for what the White House claims is their “final push” for the … More

It abandons not just the 65 years of trade liberalization on which American and world economic prosperity has been built since the end of World War II, but attempts to … More

    The Truth about Rising Health Insurance Premiums

    Congress and its allies on the left are hell bent to overhaul the health care of every American. They have focused strongly on increasing regulation of insurance companies. They get the most of the blame for increasing premiums and skyrocketing health spending.  Though certain targeted and technical reforms of the … More

    Guest Blogger: Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) on Free Trade

    For two decades, the word “trade” has been a dividing force in Congress. Its supporters, like me, see trade as a boon to our economy. As the free leader of the world, the U.S. is also one of the largest trading nations, supporting millions of American workers and millions of … More

    $7-A-Gallon Gas Needed to Meet Government’s CO2 Cuts
