Ted Cruz explains #Obamacare’s success in one graphic

Ted Cruz explains #Obamacare’s success in one graphic

**Posted by Phineas “Obamacare salesman on the job” With the recent announcement of more than seven million sign-ups for Obamacare, the administration and its supporters have been running around shouting “Success! SUCCESS!!” , as if an enrollment figure means that the implementation of the law itself, with its myriad problems (for example ) ( 1 ), will be just a matter of working “the bugs” out. Nevertheless, seven million was the administration’s goal, and they met it. So, how does …

Anthony Weiner’s New Column at Business Insider: To Hell With the Free Market in Selling Cars!

Anthony Weiner’s New Column at Business Insider: To Hell With the Free Market in Selling Cars!

Anthony Weiner now has a column at Business Insider. (!) His first effort is a broadside against Tesla for having the nerve to suggest that they should be allowed to sell cars on the free market, rather than be subject to absurd state laws that mandate cars be sold by licensed dealers with state-created monopolies within their prescribed territories. The whole thing is ridiculous from start to finish, but I don’t have the time or energy to fisk it line by line. …

President’s FY2015 budget more proof that he lives in a fantasy world

President’s FY2015 budget more proof that he lives in a fantasy world

If I’m not mistaken, not a single Obama budget (those few he’s submitted) over the years has gotten even one vote when it hit Congress. ? And that includes votes from Democrats. This year is likely to be no exception. Veronique De Rugy at George Mason Univerity’s Mercatus Center says : Much of the president’s proposed budget’s rosy projections will require considerable tax financing and political restraint to come to fruition.

Minimum Wage: West Virginia Democrats exempt themselves

Minimum Wage: West Virginia Democrats exempt themselves

**Posted by Phineas Weird, isn’t it? If having the state mandate higher and higher wages for everyone is such a good idea, why on Earth would WV House Democrats vote to exempt themselves from a law being imposed on everyone else? Last week, the Democrat controlled House in West Virginia passed legislation raising the state’s minimum wage to $8.75 an hour, $1.50 higher than the federal minimum wage. The action is part of a nation-wide effort by Democrats to make a minimum wage increase central to their platform for the midterm elections. The increase didn’t effect all workers, though. Democrats exempted many of their own staff from the wage hike. Businesses may…

It is official: Welcome to the Obama economy

We’ve been told over the last few years that our economy is in a slump but not to worry. ? It’s temporary. ? The administration is on it. ? It’s going to be fixed. What, we’ve had 5 recovery summers and are heading into our 6th? Well, the CBO, that office the administration loves to cite when it suits them, has decided that this economy…
