This may be the dumbest thing I read today.  (I confess, it is sitll early, but for now…) “We need revenue,” said Rep. Frank Sapareto, R-Derry. “We know what our options are. There are only two.

Ok.  I’m sorry if the title of this post puts an image into your head that is so disturbing that you need to drink it away – but the connection is worth mentioning.

“Those arrested include operators of home care agencies, operators of nurse staffing agencies, office workers and personal care assistants. One woman is accused of bilking taxpayers out of $75 million.” Fraud is a major factor in Medicaid.  Expanding Medicaid will only expand the fraud.   The irony in this is that Medicaid expansion is part of ObamaCare […]

Back in 2008 NH Democrat Jeanne Shaheen scared people with promises that Global Warming was real and that it would put an end to New Hampshire Winters–and our touristy-like winter wonderland of commerce.  It was settled science.  I heard that, didn’t you hear that?
