  • The gang that can't shoot straight

    It's too early to write the history of the Obama administration. But, at this point, it looks like, for the most part, that history may be summed up in three words: coulda, woulda, shoulda. I "coulda" signed an immigration bill, but Congress was too...
  • Obamacare: The latest from Glitches R Us

    Only now does Obamacare's namesake call the press to the Rose Garden, which is much better tended than his signature program, to acknowledge what everybody already knows: There are, well, a few problems with his signature program. Problems are now known...
  • Excuse me? GOP to blame for ObamaCare?

    The Affordable Care Act -- aka ObamaCare -- is off to a very rocky start, and according to the law's biggest defenders, the blame falls squarely at the feet of Republicans. It's an odd claim. Republicans did not write the law. They did not support the...

    Whew! That was close. We almost went over the cliff, but were spared at the 11th hour by a half-hearted deal that re-opens the government -- but only till January 15; raises the debt ceiling -- but only till February 7; and creates a bicameral, bipartisan...

    Last week was amusing. There was the spectacle of advocates of an ever-larger regulatory government expressing shock about such government's large capacity for misbehavior. And, entertainingly, the answer to the question "Will Barack Obama's scandals...

    Indianapolis woman sentenced to 80 months for defrauding nearly $9M
    An Indianapolis woman will spend more than six years in prison for defrauding Indiana's Medicaid program of nearly $9 million. Carol Woodard, 45, was sentenced to six years and eight months Friday after pleading guilty to health care fraud. Woodard...
  • The truth about Obama and welfare

    The truth about Obama and welfare
    The old line is that there's a simple way to know a politician is lying: His lips are moving. Odds are good that any lurid charge leveled against a candidate is largely fraudulent. So it was no surprise that when Mitt Romney accused Barack Obama of...

    More than 90,000 consumers in Pennsylvania will get a little gift from their health insurance company this year. Eleven insurers will be returning $5.1 million to Pennsylvania consumers under a rule in the Affordable Care Act that gives insurers an...
