Sen. Portman Bill Deserves Tea Party Support

Today in America, we can’t even go a day without hearing a story about the IRS abusing its power and unjustly harassing American taxpayers. Perhaps the most famous case in recent memory is the IRS’s targeted campaign against Tea Party members. The IRS’s unjust and discriminatory actions led Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) to write successful pieces of legislation that curtailed the agency’s power, all of which were signed into law by President Obama.

In a further attempt to rein in the IRS’s…

Obama's War on Seniors

Since 2009, the Obama Administration — whether intentionally or not — has been crippling the well-being of our senior citizens. Under the fiscal irresponsibility of Obama’s reign, inflation has risen by over 12%, leaving seniors on fixed incomes with less money in their wallets and purses. Last year, Obama’s budget deal extorted $150 billion from the Social Security trust fund in order to finance other areas of the budget. And now, Obama is planning his most egregious action yet — he wants…

The Secret Plan to Help Sheldon Adelson and Ban Internet Gambling

When Sen. Lindsey Graham announced his run for the presidency he had limited support but one of his donors was none other than Las Vegas casino owner Sheldon Adelson.  That should come as no surprise.  After all, Graham is the chief sponsor of Adelson's legislation to outlaw is competition -- state regulated online gaming. 

New Jersey, Delaware and Nevada have all exercised their power under federalism to legalize online gaming for their residents.  Other states like Illinois and…

Obama's Cronies Seek to Get Rich By Killing Puerto Rico Reform Bill

When President Ronald Reagan attempted to reform and simplify our tax code in 1985 and 1986, he ran head-long into lobbyists and special interests who came out of the woodwork to protect their designated provisions in the tax code.  The process was detailed in a book called “Showdown at Gucci Gulch.”  The book showed the sausage-making that went into crafting the bill that was finally enacted.  From a conservative perspective, the bill ended up being a sort of…

Hollywood's and Washington's Hypocrisy

The Oscars provide Americans an opportunity to peek behind the curtain about the politics of the Hollywood elite.  It is not a pretty sight. From accusations of racism to denunciations of global warming, each and every pronouncement comes chock full of two-faced hypocrisy.

Front and center, of course, was the effort to address the accusations of rank racism by the Hollywood elite for their failure to nominate a black actor or actress in Oscar categories for two years in a row.  Chris…

Unconstitutional Bailout Underway -- Pelosi, Obama and Ryan Push Bailout Scheme for Puerto Rico

It's the "crisis" you never heard of, but thanks in part of Anita Dunn (who was forced to resign from the White House after showing affection toward Mao) and her public relations firm, you soon will.

The bill for decades of liberal spending programs fueled by borrowing by politicians in Puerto Rico has come due.  Not surprisingly, the politicians want a bailout in the form of bankruptcy protection.  Paying off the debts is the last thing on their minds.

Now the media is filled…

Obamacare Official Under Fire

Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce Oversight Subcommittee have demanded answers from the Obama administration on whether it is requiring states to pay back millions in federal dollars they used to build marketplaces that later failed.  The White House spent over $4 billion to fund state efforts to build their own exchanges.

The failure of the state exchanges have been well documented.  The crown jewel of disaster was Oregon where a corrupt governor and his political…

Apply 10th Amendment to Online Gambling

Tomorrow the House Government Oversight Committee will hold a hearing on Las Vegas casino owner Sheldon Adelson's pet project -- an effort to stifle his potential competition by outlawing the ability of states to legalize online gaming.  Dan Schneider of the American Conservative Union makes a persuasive case why such an effort is not only folly, but destructive of the…

Cost to Taxpayers of Doing Favors for Big Phrma

After lobbying for ObamaCare, some members of Congress still are trying to do favors for Big Phrma.  An article entitled The Inter Partes Review Process is Working, Even For Pharmaceuticals made the point that when Congress does favors for the drug industry the taxpayers get stuck with the tab.

Health care is increasingly expensive, thanks in part to government's…

Stop Slavitt

The Chicago Way has a simple formula -- reward your friends and punish your enemies.  President Obama plays the game well and rewards those who take care of him -- even when they take care of themselves in the process.  The game is being played out at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) where the president has nominated Andy Slavitt to become head of the agency.

Slavitt was the CEO of Optum/QSSI, a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group, one of the nation's largest health…

Conservatives Should Embrace Free Trade

The late Milton Friedman wrote that there are “few measures that we could take would do more to promote the cause of freedom at home and abroad than complete free trade.” But with a pro-free trade measure at hand, some on the right are letting their objections for President Obama's lawlessness on immigration and other issues to cloud their conviction in this core principle of conservative belief.

At issue is Trade Promotion Authority, which guarantees that…

A Tax Cut for Air Travelers

Conservatives should praise a new effort in the House of Representatives to reform the whole structure of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and, hopefully, lower some taxes while they are at it.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
