What’s Wrong with the Budget Deal?

Posted: December 12, 2013 at 12:30 pm   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

When the House votes Thursday on the so-called “Bipartisan Budget Act,” violating John Boehner’s 72-hour rule for consideration of legislation, dozens of GOP members will join hands with their Republican leaders and blindly jump off the fiscal cliff. It’s a long way to fall. The bill does nothing to tackle entitlement reform, the source of […]

Ryan-Murray budget shuts down conservative government in House

Posted: December 11, 2013 at 10:00 am   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

By Foster Friess But when the debt ceiling debate returns in February we will hear otherwise from the Chicago-bred, Washington DC Democratic elite.

Posted: October 28, 2013 at 1:05 pm   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

Offered no less than two chances to delay Obamacare’s individual mandate earlier this month, not one Democrat in the United States Senate refused to grant Majority Leader Harry Reid’s motions to table those delays during the government shutdown.

Government shutdown gives Republicans huge public relations opportunity

Posted: October 27, 2013 at 7:45 am   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories, Videos

By Foster Friess A survey revealed 41 media outlets blamed Republicans for shutdown, while zero blamed Democrats, and 13 blamed both. Why, therefore, could Republicans benefit? Because of human nature: People resent being lied to. The D.C. Democrats told us America could default on its debt, which was never a possibility (as Alan Greenspan explains in link below). The […]
