"Once again, it looks like the Democrats are painting the Republicans as the bad guys when they are truly the ones making the mistakes. " Once again? How about, EVERY TIME. Admittedly, I have only been paying attention for 40 years, but I have yet to see a liberal accusation that was NOT a smokescreen to cover their own evil actions. When liberals accuse, they are simply trying to divert away from themselves. Other examples: "racist" and "party of the rich". Every time they accuse, you can be assured that they are hiding their own evil behavior behind those accusations. But, after 40 years, it is good to see someone finally noticing.
Shocking. A corrupt Democrat profiting from his position as Senator? A Democrat attacking the American people for his own profit? A Democrat making millions of dollars as a "public" servant bought and paid for by the highest bidder? Who would have guessed? (sarcasm off)

Repeal and replace Obamacare

7 million signed up. Most were already insured and FORCED onto the exchanges. What happened to the 30 million uninsured that ObamadoesnotCare was supposed to "help". We KNOW that the mainstream media (also known as the Democrat Party propaganda organizations) will aggressively avoid this question. But, why do we not hear about the 30 million from every other source of news and every politician? OBAMACARE FAILED BY ITS OWN MEASURES! We should be hearing this in every other word from politicians and non-propaganda outlets -- i.e. those who supposedly will help us get rid of this nightmare.

Branding Hillary Clinton

"If the GOP had even a clue about branding..." Well. There you have it. To describe the GOP as clueless would be kind. It is much worse than that. The GOP is mute. Refuses to communicate. And, for over 50 years, blames the media for not getting their "message" out (Really. The GOP claims they have a message. Who would have guessed?) I think that 50 years exceeds any statute of limitations on excuses. This article is simply another great idea that the GOP would ignore IF they took the time to realize that ideas such as this one existed.

Government Can't Say No

2016. Just a couple of years away. A mere 40 years ago, I learned that I had been lied to my whole life. Social Security was anything but social or secure. It was a ponzi scheme. It has been 40 years since that revelation. In the 4 decades that followed, I watched heartless and cruel Democrats repeatedly stop ANY change to Social Security EXCEPT to raise taxes and scare the elderly. Democrats and liberals (that would include many Republicans) are the most heartless and cruel people ever. Evil barely describes them. There are only two ways out. The first is to kill off the elderly. So, the liberals invented Obamacare. A cruelty with the name "Affordable Care" -- neither affordable nor care. Sort of name those lovable mass murderers Lenin, Stalin, Mao or Hitler would come up with. The second way out is almost funny. The libs must exorbitantly tax the young people who voted overwhelmingly Democrat. The young Democrats will, of course, rebel and double down on killing off the elderly. But, it will be fun to watch them squirm for a while.

Old Media Curses the Wind

“If the mainstream media would only cover the issue fairly . . .” For over 50 years that I have been counting, the media has been heavily left wing biased. The question is NOT when or if the "media" will cover the issue fairly, but when or if the GOP -- also well known as the party of stupid -- will figure out that the "media" hates them, that the "media" will NEVER cover any issue fairly and that the GOP must come up with some other mechanism to communicate with the American people. Never fear. The party of stupid will continue to do nothing and stand mute.

"...skipped American history in school, or they would know what happened the last time a group of government forces attempted a series of dramatic gun control raids ..." Actually, it is the author who must have skipped American history. The next famous weapons confiscation came in 1835 with the Mexican cavalry arriving in Gonzales, Texas to confiscate a cannon. The cannon was in a wagon, surrounded by local residents and draped with a flag that read "Come and Take It". That turned out as badly for the gun grabbers as Lexington 60 years earlier. But, in recent memory, 1993 to be exact, US Federal forces attacked a group in Waco, Texas because the occupants were SUSPECTED to have illegal weapons. In the end, the gun grabbers killed 76 men, women and children while Americans watched on television. Don't be too smug. The tyrants remember their success in 1993, not their losses 1775 and 1835 ... even if you do not.
"No philosophy has victimized, harmed, killed, imprisoned and ruined more lives than progressivism." Well said. It bears repeating.

Yellen's Low-flation Nonsense

Looks like GrafSpee got flagged, tagged and bagged. His comments are gone. Disappointing. It was a truly funny name.
Seems to be some backlash to Mr. Goodman's points. And, for good reason. We want the government OUT of the health insurance business. But, his first point -- a universal tax credit -- REVERSES the distortion of government in the health care and health insurance business. It levels the tax playing field. Today, the government gives a tax credit LIMITED to employers paying for employee health insurance. That completely distorts the market. What this LIMITED tax credit means is that the exact same insurance purchased by the employee outside of employment costs twice as much (on average) simply because of taxes. No other reason. You can do the math for yourself. I was self employed for a long time -- I did the math. A true "universal tax credit" would completely change the economics to the advantage of the individual and remove much, maybe most, of the government distortions from the market.
