Democrats on ObamaCare “I meant to do that!”

The real question that will be answered by the Supreme Court in the ObamaCare case that begins today concerns the Commerce Clause and whether or not the Federal Government has any limits placed on it by the Constitution.

Jamie Radtke’s statement regarding President Obama’s “jobs speech”

Same Failed Approach, New Spin   President Obama’s speech proves one fact: He doesn’t understand how to get government out of the way of job creators. So he’s trying the same old approach that he already tried and that already failed and is just putting a new spin on it. He’s chasing the wrong rabbit. […]

Blaming the Downgrade on the TEA Party is Like Blaming MADD for Drunk Driving

Only in the delusional minds of spend-drunk Progressive Democrats is the TEA Party to blame for the Standard and Poor downgrade of the US credit worthiness.

Senate Candidate Tim Donner – Statement on Debt Deal

There is no cause for celebration about the debt deal that has now been passed. This represents little more than another typical Washington deal loaded with the largest debt extension in history on the front end and unenforceable spending cuts spread over a decade.  And they are not even cuts, but rather minuscule reductions in […]

Obama’s ‘Balanced Approach’ is, well… UNBALANCED

President Obama’s speech last night was unremarkable and predictable. The only thing new was the number of times he used the phrase balanced approach. In fact, he used the phrase 8 times! Apparently, this phrase polls well among the masses. But attempting to disguise his more of the same spending spree as balanced is the […]
