    Guest Bloggers: James Frogue & Elizabeth Noelcke On Healthcare Fraud is Worse Than You Think

    One key area that has been totally ignored in healthcare debate is the jaw-dropping amount of fraud and abuse in the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

    Guest Blogger: Rep. Jason Altmire (D-PA)on Nuclear Energy's Role in America’s Future

    When skyrocketing energy prices took hold of America last summer, it became clear that developing alternative sources of energy was important to our nation’s economic and national security.

    Guest Blogger: Congressman Pete Olson (R-TX) on the Increase in Minimum Wage

    As we celebrated our nation’s birthday, North Korea launched seven missiles, and is now preparing to launch a long-range ballistic missile, just months after testing a nuclear weapon. At the same time, Iran is developing both nuclear capabilities and long range missiles, recently disguised as a “space” launch. Meanwhile in … More

    Guest Blogger: Congressman Tom Rooney (R-FL) on the Tenuous Future of Gitmo

    After taking office earlier this year, President Obama issued an executive order to close the detention facilities by the end of the year, without a plan for the relocation of over 200 detainees currently housed at the base. One option that I do not support is bringing the detainees here to the … More

    Guest Blogger: Congressman Michael Turner (R-OH) on Missile Defense Budget Cuts

    Missile Defense Budget Cuts Are a Dangerous Gamble Given the battle going on in Washington over the future of a critical homeland defensive system, it’s unfortunate that much of the American public isn’t aware of what they have and what they stand to lose with the stroke of a pen. … More

    Repeating the Mistakes From the Iraq War in Afghanistan Yesterday, early in the morning, the House Armed Services Committee finished its work on the Defense Authorization bill for 2010.
