DR. CARSON’S INCREDIBLE SPEECH ON PC, HEALTH CARE, THE DEBT & REDISTRIBUTION

This guy gives it to Obama and his accomplices straight from the shoulder at the National Prayer Breakfast. My favorite line is the one in which he says every child should be given a Health Savings Account at birth. For you “progressives,” the HSA is a free market tool with which people can take charge [...]

HEALTH CARE “REFORM” IS TO MEDICARE AS ENOLA GAY WAS TO HIROSHIMA

It could hardly be more obvious that the President and his Democrat accomplices have dropped a twenty megaton bomb on Medicare. ObamaCare strips $500 billion from the program and effectively kills its most popular iteration—Medicare Advantage. Why? Milton Wolf provides the answer in his latest Washington Times column: The president’s intentions are chillingly clear: ‘I [...]

RAND PAUL SAYS TO BELIEVE IN A “RIGHT” TO HEALTH CARE IS TO BELIEVE IN SLAVERY

His point is actually pretty easy to understand, if you listen. If you have a “right? to health care, it means you have a “right? to someone else’s time and belongings. That “right? has a name, and Senator Paul is not afraid to use it: With regard to the idea of whether you have a [...]

Having received word that union leaders are suddenly willing to make modest concessions (like maybe paying half what everyone else pays for health coverage) Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker held a news conference in which he explained the state’s financial dilemma, how the previous Democrat Governor (Jim Doyle) ducked the problem and that it’s WAY [...]

VIDEO: WHY BIG GOVT IS BAD GOVT

The reason economics is called the dismal science is because it is math intensive and not sexy. But it’s IMPORTANT to KNOW this stuff. The Center for Freedom & Prosperity provides this short video that eases the pain a little by allowing an attractive young woman to provide the facts about out-of-control-government spending:

VIDEO: THE TRUTH ABOUT REDISTRIBUTION

President Obama’s recess-appointed Administrator of CMS famously said that “any healthcare funding plan that is just, equitable, civilized and humane, must redistribute wealth …” That sounds very noble until you consider that it means authorizing the central government to use violence against people who disagree. This video from Reason TV really drives that point home: [ht [...]
