Did McCain Save Obamacare Again?

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 07:20:05 -0500

Russell Berman, The Atlantic
The Arizona Republican on Friday announced that he could not “in good conscience” support the latest GOP proposal to substantially repeal the Affordable Care Act, all but certainly dooming the effort. McCain became the third Senate Republican to oppose the legislation offered by Senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, which was headed for a floor vote next week. Republicans could only afford to lose two of their 52 members and have Vice President Mike Pence cast a tie-breaking vote to pass the bill.

John McCain Will Be Remembered for Lying to Voters

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 07:20:07 -0500

Emily Jashinsky, DC Examiner
But in a statement announcing his opposition to the Graham-Cassidy legislation — one that signaled it was as good as dead — Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., argued bipartisanship was a necessary component to such efforts, so as not to "leave the American people guessing from one election to the next whether and how they will acquire health insurance."

Graham-Cassidy Bill Would Be an Act of Mass Suicide

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 07:20:39 -0500

Atul Gawande, The New Yorker
The fundamental thing to understand about Senate Republicans’ latest attempt to repeal Obamacare is that the bill under consideration would not just undo the Affordable Care Act—it would also end Medicaid as we know it and our federal government’s half-century commitment to closing the country’s yawning gaps in health coverage. And it would do so without putting in place any credible resources or policies to replace the system it is overturning. If our country enacts this bill, it would be an act of mass suicide.

Four Rules for the Coming Tax Reform Debate

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 07:29:30 -0500

Jacob Lew, New York Times
Second, tax cuts must be offset by revenue-raising measures. With the country in the ninth year of an economic recovery, the case for pure stimulus is weak, and digging a deep hole of debt by cutting taxes will make it harder to pay for other priorities. And when that debt makes deficits skyrocket in the future, policy makers would have to choose between raising taxes and cutting investments and vital benefits.

School Choice Is Crucial for Black Students' Success

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 07:29:39 -0500

Willard Fair, USA Today
Once upon a time it may have been unheard of for the head of an urban league dedicated to the improvement of lives for African-American children to partner with a Republican to work on school reform. As part of one of his education reform efforts, Florida governor Jeb Bush convinced me to help him go around that state in an attempt to get school choice legislation passed. I leapt at the opportunity because I was desperately concerned about the lack of quality educational options for children in Liberty City, a neighborhood of the city of Miami where a branch of the urban league is...

The Obama Regime Caught Spying on the Trump Campaign

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 07:20:46 -0500

Rush Limbaugh
Samantha Power has been unmasking Americans in the last year of the Obama Regime at the rate of one American every working day. Two-hundred-and-sixty different Americans unmasked by someone not even in the intelligence community. She was a U.N. ambassador. It would be the equivalent of Nikki Haley today unmasking a bunch of people that she thought not — Now, I don’t know that too many people know much about Samantha Power

Showdown Over Trump Dossier: FBI Misses 3rd Deadline

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 07:20:49 -0500

Byron York, DC Examiner
The dossier is a collection of what former FBI Director James Comey called "salacious and unverified" allegations of collusion between Russia and Trump campaign figures in the 2016 campaign. The Russia allegations were compiled by a former British spy, Christopher Steele, who was commissioned by the opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which is thought to have been paid for the work by wealthy supporters of Hillary Clinton. The FBI reportedly considered taking over the dossier project in the fall of 2016, when the campaign was at its height, leading Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck...

How Hillary Clinton Lost

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 07:20:09 -0500

Stanley Greenberg, American Prospect
Hillary Clinton’s tragic 2016 campaign faced withering criticism in the press, social media, and now, in Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes’s inside account, Shattered. From my vantage point as lead pollster for the Democratic nominees in 1992 and 2000, part of the closing clutch of pollsters in 2004, and invited noodge in 2016, I have little quarrel with the harshest of these criticisms. Malpractice and arrogance contributed mightily to the election of Donald Trump and its profound threat to our democracy. So did the handling of the email server, paid Wall Street speeches, and the...

Trump Boxed In the Globalists in His UN Speech

Thomas Lifson, American Thinker
It's safe to say that none of his many enemies among the global elites anticipated an intellectual challenge from Donald Trump. He doesn't look or talk or act the way they think an intellectual should. Yet somehow, he has placed them in a box.

Stephanie Coontz, CNN
Americans have long presumed that being unmarried, especially as they got older, was a sentence, but the fact is, it is now common, widespread--and a game-changer both for our emotional lives and our social policies, writes Stephanie Coontz.
