Holt and Christie: Facepalm Inducing NJ Politicians

July 26, 2013

Full disclosure:  Rush Holt used to be my Congressman who I voted against three times; plus, I will not vote to reelect Chris Christie this Fall — he’s a big government, bloviating, Obama-hugging ass.

Fiat Enforcement of Obamacare Stirring Some Opposition

July 9, 2013

The Obama Administration’s announcement last week that it will arbitrarily push back certain aspects of Obamacare until after the 2014 Election is actually getting some blow back from the GOP, surprisingly, beyond their seemingly obligatory and now tiresome repeal votes. The GOP is saying that it’s not fair to delay certain aspects of the law’s [...]

Coincidentally, One Major Obamacare Insurance Mandate Delayed Until After 2014 Election

July 2, 2013

Breaking news out of Foggy Bottom’s Treasury Department:  the administration will delay a mandate on large employers to provide health insurance until 2015.

Not Sure About This Marco Rubio Fellow Anymore

June 1, 2013

The centripetal force of the statist-leaning ruling class in DC is enormous.  It gobbles up new, bright-eyed members all the time and spits out more of the same junk. Unfortunately, a once bright shining star in my eyes, Marco Rubio, has been caught up in it.  Nothing proves that more than how he’s become a [...]

Labor May Be Turning on Obamacare

May 26, 2013

If there’s one thing I’ve learned since the Obama Nation took charge, it is to always watch what the other hand is doing.  Before the Benghazi-IRS-AP scandals, it seemed like Obama was constantly moving from one issue to another and back again:  gun control to amnesty to drones to Gitmo to gun control to amnesty [...]

Shelley Moore Capito, a popular Republican Congressman has announced that she will challenge the increasingly unpopular Jay Rockefeller in the 2014 West Virginia Senate race.  The GOP has tried to convince her to run for years; in two years, she finally will.
