  • 'Medicare for All' No Cure, Says Doctor and Army Ranger Elected to House

    ‘Medicare for All’ No Cure, Says Doctor and Army Ranger Elected to House

    The free market is the cure to the nation’s health care crisis, not what liberals call Medicare for All, argues a physician, combat veteran, and businessman who just became a congressman from Tennessee.

    “It’s too expensive,” Rep. Mark Green, elected in November to represent Tennessee’s 7th Congressional District, said of Medicare for All in an interview with The Daily Signal.

    “If you look at the health care systems that are sort of universal-type care, like the VA, and you can look at some of the systems outside the country in Canada and places like that …  they wind up having to ration care somehow,” Green said. READ MORE...

    Trump Demands California Pay Back Federal Government for Canceled Bullet Train Project

    President Donald Trump demanded that California pay back the federal government for its abandoned high-speed rail project, in a tweet Wednesday evening.

    “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a ‘green’ disaster!”

  • Voter ID Laws Don’t Deter Turnout or Fraud

    Voter ID Laws Don’t Deter Turnout or Fraud


    Yet another study has found that voter ID laws do not suppress voter turnout, but the study also asserted such laws have no clear effect on stopping voter fraud.

    The study was compiled by two professors, Vincent Pons of Harvard University Business School and Enrico Cantoni of the economics department at the University of Bologna in Italy. It was issued by the National Bureau of Economic Research, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

    “For all the heated debates around strict voter ID laws, our analysis of their effects obtains mostly null results,” the study says, adding: READ MORE...

  • Amid Liberal Scandals, Media Thinks GOP Pouncing Is Real Story

    Amid Liberal Scandals, Media Thinks GOP Pouncing Is Real Story


    In the past few weeks, prominent Democrats have endorsed infanticide; admitted to dressing in blackface; called for an end to fossil fuels, airplanes, and farting cows; and trafficked in open anti-Semitism.

    None of this is a serious problem for many in the media. For members of the media, the real story is that Republicans keep pouncing.

    Two weeks ago, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam stated in an
    interview that he favors legislation that would allow a woman to abort a baby
    at the point of dilation and then added that in certain cases in which a baby
    would be born alive, the baby would be kept “comfortable” while
    parents and doctors decide what to do with it. READ MORE...

  • Congress Spends Without Counting the Full Cost. My Bill Would Change That.

    Congress Spends Without Counting the Full Cost. My Bill Would Change That.

    Before legislation passes either the House or the Senate, lawmakers should know how much it costs. That would seem to go without saying.

    But lawmakers consistently overlook one key cost: the new interest payments their spending will create.

    Say you’re wanting to buy a $20,000 car but don’t have $20,000 in cash to pay for it. If you borrowed the $20,000 from the dealer for a standard loan of five years at 4 percent interest, the true cost of the car after your last loan payment would be $22,100. READ MORE...

  • Socialism Has Already Hurt America

    Socialism Has Already Hurt America

    President Donald Trump was principled and politically astute to address, in his State of the Union, the horrors taking place now in Venezuela, and then to declare:

    “Tonight we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”

    Venezuela is indeed a poster child for what happens when a nation’s economic machinery falls under political control.

    Over the last five years, per The Wall Street Journal, Venezuela’s economy shrank by 35 percent and poverty tripled from 48 to 87 percent. READ MORE...
