    Turkey, Pumpkin Pie, and Religious Freedom

    Religious freedom is as much a part of Thanksgiving as turkey and pumpkin pie. From 1621, when the Pilgrims arrived in the New World, to 1863, when President Abraham Lincoln declared it a federal holiday, thanking God and practicing religion were of paramount importance. Nearly 400 years after that First … More

    Obamacare Undermines American Values

    We wrote earlier this week about the ways Obamacare discourages marriage and work. These aren’t the only traditional values it undermines. Obamacare goes against two values that should be no-brainers: prioritizing American citizens over non-citizens, and prioritizing help for the disabled over assistance for able-bodied adults. Prioritizing Non-Citizens Over American … More

    What EVERYONE Will Be Talking About at Thanksgiving Dinner

    Have you seen them? The guides for how to talk to your family about Obamacare over the holidays. That’s right—Organizing for America (OFA), President Obama’s campaign group, has a big push called “Health Care for the Holidays” that urges people to “have the talk” with their loved ones about getting … More

    How Obamacare Discourages Work and Marriage

    We were told that Obamacare was supposed to be compassionate toward the needy in America. While President Obama and his fellow liberals may have held the best of intentions while ramming Obamacare through Congress, the law’s policies are far from compassionate toward the uninsured and Americans with low and modest … More

    They Got Away With It

    As President Obama said, they got away with it. Harry Reid and the Democrat-controlled Senate got away with changing the Senate’s rules so that they can shove through anything they want without having to worry about Republicans filibustering against it. Just a few short years ago, then-Senator Obama spoke forcefully … More

    While Obama Remakes the Courts, Harry Reid Wants to Remake the Senate

    Every few months, it seems, Harry Reid (D-NV) threatens to upend the Senate so that he can push something through without following the rules. This time, it’s the President’s judicial nominees. President Obama is already well on his way to remaking federal courts in the liberal image, but Reid insists … More

    How Obamacare Will Try to Control What You Eat

    Did you know there are 34 million different ways to make a Domino’s pizza? Mary Lynne Carraway can’t fit that on a menu board. But that’s what Obamacare says she has to do: Put up a menu board in each of her 60 Domino’s stores that tells people the calorie … More

    Is Our Government Still "Of the People"?

    Seven score and 10 years ago today, Abraham Lincoln delivered the greatest speech in American history. Standing on the bloodied battlefield of Gettysburg, Lincoln urged the fractured nation to dedicate itself to the “unfinished work” of the battle. In only 10 sentences—272 words in all—he made clear the far-reaching implications of … More

    The American People Rose Up to Repeal a Health Care Law Once Before. They Can Do It Again.

    The law that promised health coverage for all has so far stripped 3.5 million Americans of their insurance. Meanwhile, fewer than 27,000 people merely “selected” plans—without necessarily purchasing them—on HealthCare.gov. To date, then, Obamacare keeps creating more coverage losers for every Obamacare “winner.” And many of those “winners” have been … More

    Do You Believe Obama This Time? How About Now? …Now?

    Once upon a time, Obamacare was “settled” law that was “here to stay.” Or so President Obama said—before Obamacare failed to survive contact with reality. The reality is that the Administration is delaying the impact of major parts of the law, including the employer mandate and now the benefit mandates … More
