President Obama, it seems, likes his chances with the full court. And why not? He “hand-packed” it himself. 2014-07-28T13:42:00-04:00 2014-07-29T04:00:08Z Hans A. von Spakovsky

New Obama EPA Rules Will Devastate Seniors

TownHall - Mon, 2014-07-28 21:00
The EPA's war on coal is no less than a war on seniors and our nation's most vulnerable. Seniors on fixed and diminishing incomes pay a disproportionate share of their monthly budget on utilities, and Obama's EPA will serve only to make them poorer and more vulnerable. 2014-07-28T12:14:00-04:00 2014-07-29T04:00:08Z Jim Martin

Kristen Bell is the Latest Celebrity to Fail at Politics and Economics

TownHall - Mon, 2014-07-28 21:00
Kristen Bell. You were so great as sassy, wisecracking teen detective in Veronica Mars. And I teared up right along with you about sloths on the Ellen Show. But while your Mary Poppins spoof to pump up support for raising the minimum wage was definitely cute and well-produced, it was a little fact-challenged. 2014-07-28T00:01:00-04:00 2014-07-29T04:00:08Z Cathy Reisenwitz
