Ever since, the Terry family and Americans across the nation have asked how this … More

    Morning Bell: Obama's War on Domestic Energy Production

    Today, the Senate will vote on the fate of one of the most expensive regulations of all time–a regulation that threatens to create an America with no new coal-fired power plants, where existing energy producers might have to close their doors, snuffing out jobs and making electricity dramatically more expensive. … More

    Morning Bell: School Choice in D.C. Saved…For Now

    President Obama has begun “evolving“ his positions on various policy issues as polls show him neck and neck with Mitt Romney.
