    Exclusive Interview: Gov. Scott Walker on Why Conservatives Don't Need to Move to the Center to Win

    Scott Walker Points to Heritage’s Health Care Reform Alternative

    Obamacare has become such a humiliating debacle that the last line of defense for its dwindling band of true believers is to mechanically repeat the mantra, “There is no conservative alternative.” They do this because they can’t sell their product on its merits and want to convince Americans that, hey, … More

    Dropping the Ball on Unions

    The NFL’s replacement referees have missed a number of calls in recent weeks. But they’d be correct if they decided to flag Washington Post writer Brad Plumer for unsportsmanlike conduct.

    Morning Bell: A Historic Win for Reform in Wisconsin

    The state of Wisconsin has once again lived up to its billing as a Midwestern incubator of Big Ideas.

    WATCH LIVE: Rep. Mac Thornberry Speaks at The Bloggers Briefing

    An outdated U.S. law adopted in the aftermath of World War II prevents Americans from listening to broadcasts on Voice of America and other taxpayer-supported broadcasters. Yet when two lawmakers offered a bipartisan solution to reverse that prohibition, critics on the right and left complained that our own government would … More

    Democrat-Backed Group Pressures Wisconsinites With Voting Records

    A Wisconsin political advocacy group with ties to the Democratic Party and Big Labor is circulating pamphlets to state residents revealing their neighbors’ names, addresses, and voting histories. The campaign is an apparent attempt to pressure residents in the Madison area, which is overwhelmingly Democratic, to vote in Tuesday’s gubernatorial … More

    Even After Walker Reforms, Wisconsin Public Workers Still Overpaid

    “What Mr. Walker and his backers are trying to do is to make Wisconsin—and eventually, America—less of a functioning democracy and more of a third-world-style oligarchy.” New York Times columnist Paul Krugman was more theatrical than most in denouncing Act 10, the set of public-sector reforms signed by Wisconsin Governor … More
