Another Obamacare Tax Now in Effect

Only in the sick and twisted mind of the liberal would Obamacare be seen as compassionate for seniors. Liberals can rant all day about how conservatives want people to die in the streets because they don’t want them to have affordable healthcare.

$2.3 Trillion Vanishes and Nobody Asks Where It Went

Our government can “lose” $2.3 trillion the day before the world’s largest terrorist attack, and nobody seems to care. That’s 14% of our current national debt, gone and no questions are  asked. And if an honest government accountant tries to do his job in finding out where this money went, he gets harassed and reassigned by his supervisors who ask him, “Why do you even care?” Wasteful government spending is the name of the game in Washington. They waste taxpayer money all the time Read more […]

Will Mitt Romney Address the Looming Debt Storm?

Hurricane Isaac plans to barge in the Republican National Convention as an uninvited guest. He’s not likely to be much worse than some heavy thunderstorms and heavy winds, but he will be seen and heard.

These speakers and videos will highlight Obama’s atrocities and Read more […]

Obama Wants to Throw Granny Under the Medicare Bus

How many times have we heard liberals claim that conservatives want to “throw granny under the bus” because we want to drastically reduce the government’s role in healthcare? Or, they’ll say that we want to “throw everybody out in the street” because we want to privatize Social Security. We point out that government policies and programs are the problem. They’ve been instrumental in impoverishing more people by creating widespread dependency. How many people do you think didn’t save enough money Read more […]
