     Boehner won't throw his colleagues and principles under the bus

    Even Obama's biggest supporters are abandoning Obamacare
    In the immediate and lasting aftermath of the unspeakable evil of September 11, 2001, America united. The courage of our military heroes and the reputation, strength and resolve of the United States daily honors the victims of the attacks. May God bless...
  • Cheating and the hungry

    Cheating and the hungry
    The recent indictment of 10 Baltimore business owners or operators on charges of stealing more than $7 million from the food stamp program is a welcome development but badly timed. No doubt it will be used as fodder by House Republicans angling to take...
  • Here's what the House is thinking with its Obamacare gambit

    Here's what the House is thinking with its Obamacare gambit
    The GOP's attempt to de-fund the "Affordable Care Act" (aka "Obamacare") is somewhat complicated, but I will attempt to bring it together for you. We begin with the fact of universal Republican opposition to the law. Not one Republican supported...
