Obama's Labor Secretary: Expanded Unemployment Benefits Have Saved Jobs

According to Obama administration Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, America’s job picture would be worse off if it weren’t for expanded unemployment benefits. Because all that government stimulates the economy, you guys. We helped to provide, I think, some stop-gaps, and what I think about is, those two million people who would’ve lost their unemployment insurance

Gun Sales Jump in Liberal States

CNS reports that according to FBI statistics gun sales in the US, as measured by background check requests, increased by over 19% in 2012. Only two states, Utah and Iowa, reported a decreased number of requests. Washington D.C. saw the largest year-to-year increase with sales jumping 49.7%.

Obama Crony Warren Buffett Raking It In From Transporting Bakken Oil By Rail

If built, the Keystone XL pipeline would take about 100,000 barrels of North Dakota’s Bakken oil per day (to put that into perspective, that’s the equivalent of taking about 500 tanker trucks off the roads a day).

Even After Tax Hikes, Obama Maintains "Rich Should Pay Their Fair Share"

If you thought, now that President Obama and his liberal friends got their tax hikes on the rich, we could start talking about meaningful spending cuts you can forget it. “Obviously, there is still more to do when it comes to reducing our debt,” Obama said in a video released by his (seemingly never-ending) campaign.

"We Can't Cut Our Way To Prosperity" When Prosperity Is Based On Government Spending

“We cannot simply cut our way to prosperity,” President Obama said last night in response to the House sending him the “fiscal cliff” legislation to sign. That statement always strikes me as curious, as though government drives the economy instead of burdens it. I’m no anarchist. We need government. There are lots of things government

Schafer Column: North Dakota's Lesson For Solving The Deficit Problem

North Dakota was just rated as the “Best Run State in America”, and there are lessons to be learned as we approach our financial problems in the federal government. President Obama pushes tax increases to solve the outrageous deficit problem facing our country and says “the majority of Americans agree with my approach.” David Axlerod

We've Taxed The Rich, Now What?

I won’t tell you that the fiscal cliff deal passed by Congress yesterday was a good thing. I think going over the cliff would have been better for the country. The spending cuts in the sequestration were more meaningful, and the tax hikes were more broad. I don’t think we’re going to see an appetite

Shocker: "Fiscal Cliff" Deal Includes $330 Billion In New Spending, Adds $4 Trillion To Deficits

About those “spending cuts” that supposedly balance the $620 billion in tax hikes in the “fiscal cliff” deal passed by the Senate last night. Turns out, the bill increases both national spending and the ten-year window of budget deficits significantly. The “fiscal cliff” deal that was designed to save money actually includes $330.3 billion in

Balanced: Senate Fiscal Deal Has $41 In Tax Hikes For Every $1 In Spending Reductions

According to the Congressional Budget Office, the “fiscal cliff” deal passed by the US Senate late last night has $15 billion in spending growth reductions (it’s not cuts as we’ll still be spending more in 2013 than we’re spending in 2012) and $620 billion in tax hikes, both over the course of a decade.
