  • New Obamacare Enrollment Numbers Are No Reason to Pop the Champagne

    To hear the White House tell it, you’d think that Obamacare is going swimmingly. Liberals are cheering the new Obamacare enrollment numbers that for the first time exceeded the Congressional Budget Office’s projection of 1.06 million for the month of January. “We think that what is happening is what we … More

    Obama's War on Work

    The cleverest spin to come from the Left these days has been that not working—or working less—is a great thing for Americans. A recent Congressional Budget Office revealed that there will be the equivalent of 2.3 million fewer workers joining the labor market over the next decade as a direct … More

    Why Liberals Don't Really Want Immigration Reform

    As soon as the immigration debate heated back up, it seems to have cooled. Why? The truth is that many liberals are actually hoping to prolong this debate as much as possible because it allows them to continue advancing the false narrative that conservatives are anti-immigration. This, in fact, was … More

    Mr. President, Why Do You Oppose School Choice?

      In a largely unreported story, a couple in Pennsylvania is facing charges that could land them in jail for nearly seven years.  Their crime? Sending their five year old daughter to a public school outside of their school district. If it sounds bizarre, that’s because it is. And although … More

    The Tired State of the Union Redux

    Will this be the most anti-climactic State of the Union speech ever? Quite possibly, yes. At least in previous iterations, there was an element of suspense regarding the speech’s actual content. Not this time. For weeks, if not months, the President and his surrogates have telegraphed how the State of … More

    You Can’t Have Income Equality Without Economic Freedom

    For all of the ideas President Barack Obama will likely mention in the course of this election year on ways to reduce income inequality, don’t expect for him to mention the one that has actually been proven empirically to work: jobs. This sweeping pronouncement is hard to refute after reading … More

    Don’t Look to the Feds for Preschool

    You’d think that the Obamacare rollout debacle would give one pause before asking the federal government to start running another mega-program. Yet Senator Tom Harkin (D., Iowa) and Representatives George Miller (D., Calif.) and Richard Hanna (R., N.Y.) are doing just that today. Accompanied by Hollywood actress Jennifer Garner, they … More

    Obamacare and Its Impact on Hispanics

    Here’s something you won’t hear from the Hispanic media, the mainstream media, or the White House: Among the many terrible side effects of Obamacare is its adverse effects on Hispanics. This stems from the fact that the Hispanic population is one of the youngest, in addition to Obamacare’s impact on … More

    Why Mexico’s Education Reforms Are Important

    Since taking office as Mexico’s newest president, Enrique Pena Nieto has quickly made it a point to anger one of the most influential interest groups responsible for blocking Mexican progress: teachers unions. Predictably (and not unlike in our own country), the teachers unions are upset over a number of ambitious … More

    School Choice: Key to Improving Hispanic High School Graduation Rate

    Yesterday marked the beginning of National School Choice Week, a great way to elevate and promote education reform while calling attention to our country’s educational crisis. The problems with American education are especially pronounced among Hispanics: Latino students lag behind white peers in high school graduation rates across the country. … More
