  • The Protesters' Cry for Freedom

    The international scene in the past couple of weeks was supposed to be a smiling gathering of nations for the Olympics.

Where is President … More

    Inside the IRS Corruption Scandal

    Sure, a high-level IRS official left after the scandal erupted last year about the agency targeting conservative groups. But what good did it do? IRS officials admitted that groups with conservative leanings, especially with the words “tea party” or “patriot” in their names, had been targeted for special scrutiny, asked … More

    The Problem with Giving America a Raise

    In his State of the Union Address, President Obama told Congress to “give America a raise.” But as the job forecasts are revealing, he might as well have told them to “kill some American jobs.” Why? Heritage experts forecasted months ago that a proposed minimum wage hike would kill the … More

    She Dreamed Obamacare Was Harmless

    Obamacare is working, and it’s not costing any jobs. Shhh…keep quiet, or you’ll wake Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius from her dream. “There is absolutely no evidence, and every economist will tell you this, that there is any job loss related to the Affordable Care Act,” she said … More

    Hey Kids: Have a Cocktail Today, Because Obamacare Is Cool

    Today has been dubbed “Youth Enrollment Day” for Obamacare. Of course, when they say “youth,” they’re talking about 20-somethings who aren’t on their parents’ plans.

    President Obama—the imperial President, the “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone” President who can’t wait to show us his “year of action”—once vowed to do exactly the opposite. The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and … More

    If Only a Snow Shovel Could Dig Us Out of This

    Thanks to Congress, the U.S. now doesn’t have a debt limit for the next year. Let two Heritage experts put this into perspective. “President Obama, after less than five years in office, has already increased the debt limit by more than any other president in U.S. history, including President George … More

    Congress Is Giving Obama a Blank Check

    Remember all those debt limit fights? Well, apparently Congress got tired of fighting. So now they’re working toward doing away with the debt limit altogether. In recent years, conservatives fought to get at least some spending cuts, to begin putting the budget on a path to balance—after all, raising the … More

    Obamacare Is So Great, We Just Can't Wait for You to… Oh.

    President Obama “can’t wait” for Congress to act—but he can wait for Obamacare to kick in. Yesterday, the Obama Administration pushed back Obamacare’s employer mandate by two years for mid-sized employers. But that’s not all—employers got an added incentive not to lay off workers or cut workers’ hours. Why? Hurting … More

    Stuck in Congressional "Groundhog Day"

    In the movie “Groundhog Day,” Bill Murray wakes up again and again to find that he is stuck in the same day. This happens multiple times a year now with Congress on the debt limit, which we just hit again on Saturday. >>> Check Out: The Debt Ceiling Returns as … More
