Shane Vander Hart: Real Clear Politics shows that Democrats lead Republicans by an average of 9.6 points in a generic congressional ballot polling. What does it mean for 2018?
Whatever deal Congress and President Obama makes in order to go off the fiscal cliff in the short term we are still in deep, deep financial trouble.
The big question right now is whether about Republicans should agree to tax increases in order to avoid what scold the fiscal cliff.

Listening to the State of the Union while driving home, without the benefit of seeing the President give his speech, allowed me to hear his words and digest them without television bias. The thing that I came away with is that nothing he said had a kernel of truth in it, as it is redundant […]
Ok, they didn’t quite phrase it that way, but when I noticed the final USA Today/Gallup poll looking at Americans intentions on how they vote for Congress over on Memeorandum it is hard not to be confident. Polling likely voters there is a 15% gap between Republicans and Democrats in the generic ballot. Of those […]
Two short years ago, with the election of Barack Obama securing the White House, and having already gained control of the Congress in 2006, the Democrats were absolutely giddy. The defeat of the Republicans in 2006 and 2008 were seen with a sense of finality. There were some that even suggested that conservatism was dead. […]
As you read this article, there are not nearly enough doctors and hospitals for everyone in America. But thanks to the health care bill that Barack Obama and the Democrats rammed down the throats of the American people, that shortage is about to get a whole lot worse. The truth is that the new health […]
There’s been a lot of talk about the unconstitutionality of the procedure the Democrats are contemplating in their death-march to pass Obamacare. Indeed, lawsuits are already being prepared to challenge it in court. My question is does the idea that the Dems would do this really surprise anyone? A more fundamental question has been asked […]

In an interview with The Reno Gazette-Journal, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) when asked, “How will U.S. Sen. (Edward) Kennedy’s death affect things?” I think it’s going to help us. He hasn’t been around for some time. We’re going to have a new chairman of that committee, it’ll be, I don’t know for sure, […]
