It’s Your Money and Your Children’s Money and Their Children’s Money

More bailouts coming… Our nation’s finances are in the toilet. The debt is the highest it has ever been. This year’s deficit has already eclipsed last year’s total figure. Both political parties got together to eliminate the financial restraints imposed in 2011. What is Congress doing? Are they stupid, on drugs or do they just …

House Votes 419-6 to Repeal Obama Care Cadillac Tax

Once the Unions read it and found out what was in it, they pushed back. Yes, socialized medicine is something the left desires. And Obama Care was the groundwork for that. But like all tyrannies, you have to dance with them that brought you, at least at first.

NH House Democrats Vote to Punish Low and Unskilled Workers

In the free market need, experience, employee availability, number of “qualified” potential applicants, and the job itself (among other factors) define what an hour of labor in any given occupation is worth.
