On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech discuss just how bad Obamacare’s rollout has gotten, the hospitals and doctors that will take the biggest hit and why the whole Obamacare mess is only going to get worse.
When I was in middle school, a very smart teacher (who I’m sure now was probably conservative) gave us a small project. We were to bring in a newspaper page and look for the words that might indicate opinion. Sprinkled throughout stories written as “news reports” were hints at the author’s opinion on the matter; and if you didn’t read carefully, a reporter could lead | Read More »
This deal with Iran is fascinating in that it appears to not really be a deal at all. “The final details of a nuclear agreement signed over the weekend between Iran and Western nations will not actually go into effect until further negotiations take place at a later date, according to a senior administration official and sources on Capitol Hill.” If the deal happens, it | Read More »
It’s been a week, hasn’t it? It turns out the night I last did Tech, I pushed it way too hard, and my illness stuck with me another week. But we’re better now.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Honorable Redstate Blogging Community, I give you Hizzoner, Monticello Mayor Gordon Jenkins after being popped for flyin’ blind. LANGUAGE ALERT. Or as YouTube blogger Carmen Rue put it: “Jenkins curses repeatedly while interacting with officers, calling both white and black policemen numerous hateful racial insults, creating a hostile work environment for the officers and other employees at Village Hall which threatens their health and security and appears designed to diminish the quality of service they are permitted to provide to the public.”
‘By accident’ is not a valid excuse, by the way. What we can learn from this story about Cover Oregon – yes, it’s the exchange with the songs – and its operating methodology: Cover Oregon is still incapable of processing applications online. Anyone who mailed an application will have at least a month’s lag time before they get a response. If there’s a problem with | Read More »
Enacting tax reform to ensure citizens and businesses keep more of their own money is a natural way for states to grow their economies. In fact, with federal mandates in just about every area from labor to education to healthcare, tax codes are one pub…
Mitt Romney was wrong about Obama’s 47% floor. It could go below 40%. Look out below.
Point (The Daily Caller): America’s families will soon get their turkey, potatoes and cranberries at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners — but some will also get a tableside political pitch for the Obamacare insurance network. President Barack Obama’s deputies at Organizing for Action are urging supporters to give an Obamacare pitch to their relatives during the most iconic of American family and religious events. “Take advantage | Read More »
