Every child should have the opportunity to achieve his or her American Dream. Sadly, right now, not every child has a fair shot.
Last week, the RNC launched GOP.com/TellUs, where those impacted by ObamaCare can share their stories and even upload pictures of letters canceling their coverage, pink slips from employers, or screenshots of healthcare.gov glitches.
If, while channel surfing mid morning, you stumble upon someone flanked by happy “customers,” hawking a “good product,” and reciting a 1-800 number, chances are it’s an infomercial for the latest magical kitchen blender.
Today, the White House learned the hard way that the definition of a political gaffe is accidentally telling the truth. In the latest look into the White House's warped view of reality, a senior official proudly boasted that it “really doesn’t matter” to them how long the shutdown lasts because they think that they are "winning" the shutdown.
Democrats are desperate. Now that Obamacare isn’t just being argued in the abstract, it’s much harder to deny its flaws.
"Government secrecy is alive and well" in Washington, D.C., writes Post columnist Al Kamen. Despite President Obama's repeated overtures about transparency in government, the Obama Administration has been anything but open.
In last week’s presidential debate on domestic policy, the contrast between President Obama and Governor Romney was sharp. While the debate did not touch on foreign policy, the contrast between the two candidates there is equally clear.
Gov. Romney and Congressman Ryan have something President Obama does not: A plan to save Medicare.
On Tuesday night’s broadcast of the CBS Evening News, anchor Scott Pelley opened with sobering words: “This is the worst economic recovery America has ever had. We’ve been looking for hopeful signs, but today the chairman of the Federal Reserve threw a cold splash of reality on those hopes.”
Instead of working to grow our economy, President Obama is waging an assault on free enterprise.
Today, President Obama will speak at a Women’s Issues Conference organized by his campaign in Washington, DC. Hopefully he will take the time to apologize to the women in attendance.
Today Americans will witness an extraordinarily rare event. The president will sign a bill that originated in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, the Jumpstart Our Business Startup Act.
In 2009, Obama pledged to cut the deficit in half by the end of his term. On Monday, he officially broke that promise, by unveiling a budget with the fourth consecutive deficit in excess of a trillion dollars. By the end of 2012, the national debt will exceed $16 trillion and by 2022, a whopping $25.9 trillion.
Zoo animals and art exhibits are “interesting.” Chronic unemployment is not—unless you’re President Obama.
He promised there wouldn’t be lobbyists. Not a one. But less than a week into Barack Obama’s presidency (a week!), the White House had hired at least a dozen of them. They granted exceptions for some, and for others they exploited loopholes in the administration’s own self-written, self-imposed rules.
President Obama wants to keep his job at any cost—even if the cost is a tax increase for the American middle class and tens of thousands of jobs that could have been created.
Among President Obama’s many broken promises, none is as obvious as his failure to slow the growth of the nation’s debt. Instead of cutting annual deficits in half, as promised, he racked up record annual deficits and rapidly accelerated our accumulation of debt, which recently surpassed an unthinkable $15 trillion.
Yesterday morning: President Obama signs an executive order to end government waste. That afternoon: Investigators uncover emails indicating a prominent Obama donor actively lobbied the administration on behalf of Solyndra (that now-bankrupt stimulus-backed California-based solar energy company).
The more we learn about the failure of the stimulus-backed company Solyndra, the more questions we have. It is time the White House give us honest answers, not convenient excuses.
