Mitch McConnell couldn’t even go a few hours into this week’s Senate session without selling out conservatives and granting Harry Reid a supermajority. He delivered more than half of the GOP conference into the hands of Democrats, enabling them to gain leverage over the GOP-controlled House and pass the IMF deform package [read more here on the IMF package]. We’ve witnessed this dynamic throughout the | Read More »

Today the Telegraph ran a story titled Aborted babies incinerated to heat UK hospitals. In it we find that Britain’s National Health Service, not being content with merely killing its patients has decided that it will be environmentally sensitive in all things. The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation | Read More »

Short version: Obamacare assumes that married people file jointly. The problem with that? “In May 2012, when the Internal Revenue Service proposed its rules for Americans to get government subsidies for health insurance, officials acknowledged that a legal quirk needed to be fixed: The Affordable Care Act was written in a way that inadvertently denied such help to some people who live apart from spouses | Read More »
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Francis Cianfrocca to discuss a deal between Apple and Comcast that could shake up the TV business, why the “last mile” is key to the deal and the fourth anniversary of Obamacare.
Republicans in 2012 made a pretty bad error denouncing polls they did not believe. Turns out most of the polls the Republicans relied on showing what they hoped — a Romney win — were wrong. The polls they vigorously denounced were right. Democrats, though, made a mistake too that only now is visible. Democrats believed the polls that showed Barack Obama would win. But in | Read More »
Thom Tillis is the Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives. He is also a Republican Senate candidate. He is not a graduate of the University of Maryland College Park. That’s what Thom Tillis has claimed. But now he is having to admit it is not true. That’s not all. Tillis has a new ad out. It shows Tillis in his front yard, picking | Read More »
This was just mean: Former Bay State U.S. Senator Scott Brown is reacting to President Obama’s comments about his potential Senate run in New Hampshire. “I’d be happy to – you know, if Scott Brown wants to move down to Texas, you know, then we could always use some moderate Republicans in other parts of the country…” Or possibly just stupidly incompetent of the President. | Read More »

Remember how, from 2001 to 2006 or so, the Democrats kept screaming about “chickenhawking?” – Oh, yes, the Left has been re-purposing homophobic slurs for some time: they used that term to attack anybody who supported the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, but did not actually serve. It went nowhere, of course: your average anti-war type not only does not understand the concepts of ‘democracy’ | Read More »

Yesterday Matt Drudge used Twitter to tweak the White House over Obamacare. Predictably, the White House went on the attack. What they succeeded in doing was making plain for the world to see what most of us already knew. They really have no idea of how the US economy works or how a private business operates. The second lesson was that significant portions of the | Read More »
