They Blew Up the Healthcare System for This?

obamacare tire mudby Byron York

The Los Angeles Times, citing studies and information the Obama administration most certainly knows about but won’t release, reports that 9.5 million previously uninsured people now have health coverage because of Obamacare. Look for that 9.5 million, or perhaps a rounded-up 10 million, to be come the talking point for Obamacare supporters in coming days.

The Times says the numbers break down like this: 4.5 million previously uninsured people are now on Medicaid; 3 million previously uninsured young people are now covered because of a provision that allows them to stay on their parents’ policies until age 26; and 2 million previously uninsured people have purchased coverage on the Obamacare exchanges. In all, it is “the largest expansion in health coverage in America in half a century,” according to the Times. [Read more...]

Ex Dem Radio Talker: Enough of Obama, Supporting Romney

by Craig Silverman

I support Mitt Romney for President and Paul Ryan for Vice President. For most of my life, I have been a Democrat, and I very publicly voted (C-Span, live radio, The New York Times) for Obama-Biden in 2008.

As I studied Obama’s performance as President, I could no longer support him. [Read more...]

Credit Unions Offer Alternative for Consumers and Small Businesses

Congress Must Act to Lift Restrictions on Consumer Choice and Access to Credit in the Market

by Horace Cooper

Much has been written about the over-reach of Dodd-Frank and the drag that law and its progeny will have on the financial services sector, the economic recovery, and job creation.  Evidence continues to mount that the specter of over-regulation is crowding out free market solutions and restricting credit in the markets.  Worse, the negative effects of government interference in the financial services industry extend well beyond large commercial banks deemed “too big to fail.”  A case in point is credit unions.

Credit unions serve an important source of credit for consumers and small businesses.  Historically this has been especially true during economic downturns, when the banking industry either tightened or in other ways limited credit.   [Read more...]

Republicans Are Right, Fact-Checkers Wrong On Welfare

Reform Rollback:  True MeterDemocrats and “fact-checkers” claim Republicans are lying when they say that the president wants to gut work requirements. Here’s why the GOP should press on.

You heard it straight the other night from Bill Clinton — who would never lie to anyone — that Mitt Romney’s campaign is lying about welfare reform: “The claim that President Obama weakened welfare reform’s work requirement is just not true. But they keep on running the ads claiming it.”

This is the latest attempt by the Democrats to refute a charge that has become a huge headache for them because, well, it’s true. [Read more...]

Why ‘Catch Shares’ Is the Solution for Fisheries

Seafood Is Yummy; Bureaucratic Mismanagement Is NotCommercial-Fishing

Public policy on fisheries continues to rely largely on outdated central planning. This has led to hazardous fishing conditions, depletion of many fish stocks, and economic inefficiency.

An innovative approach – dubbed “catch shares” – has emerged in recent decades. Where it has been tried, it has been successful, both for fishing production and conservation. Catch shares involve recognizing fishermen have property rights – the “shares” – they may use, lease, or sell.

Rethinking American Foreign Policy

by Dr. Miklos K. Radvanyiglobe-hands

On January 20, 2013, the United States of America will either have Barack Hussein Obama for four more years or will have a new president, the Republican Willard Mitt Romney, with a new House of Representatives and a new Senate.  Be that as it may, the continuation of the Obama presidency, or alternatively the transfer of power to the new Romney administration, will be accompanied by many challenges, presenting the old, or the new president with a difficult agenda.
