to Caribbean Island Owned by Registered Sex Offender Jeffrey Epstein

From Judicial Watch

U.S. Department of Homeland Security (No. 1:15-cv-00915)).

According to the flight logbook obtained and first reported by Gawker.com, Clinton took more than a dozen trips aboard the private jet of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and was at least on one occasion accompanied by

Majority of Greek Voters Rejected Reasonable Offer to Let Them Stay in Eurozone. What’s Next?

Share

The hard-left prime minster promised Greek voters that a “No” vote against “austerity” would strengthen his hand and get them another, better bailout. Apparently the majority of them believed him.

By James Roberts from the Daily Signal

On Sunday Greek voters, following the lead of hard-left Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, overwhelmingly rejected an offer from the so called “Troika” of creditors, consisting of the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank and the European Commission.

The Troika offered additional funding to Greece in exchange for much needed reforms including cuts in public sector wages, pensions, and other domestic spending.

Tsipras promised Greek voters that a “No” vote against “austerity” would strengthen his hand and get them another, better bailout.

Breaking: State House and Senate Leaders Send Letter to Governor Wolf Questioning Veto of Budget

Share

State House and Senate Leaders have sent a letter to Governor Wolf questioning the Governor’s Veto of the State budget approved by the legislature. As was mentioned in the letter, the Governor’s original proposal did not receive a single vote in the House, not even from House Democrats. The budget sent to the Governor was a balanced budget that included an increase of $100 million to Basic Education Funding, increased Special Education funding by $20 million, increased Pre-K Counts funding by $25 million, and increased support for Head Start programs by $5 million. A record $10.6 billion dollars for PreK – 12 education.

The following is the text from the letter.

A Greek default would be a valuable lesson in basic economics

Share

By George Will at National Review

Now come Greeks bearing the gift of confirmation that Margaret Thatcher was right about socialist governments: “They always run out of other people’s money.” Greece, from whose ancient playwrights Western drama descends, is in an absurdist melodrama about securing yet another cash infusion from international creditors. This would add another boulder to a mountain of debt almost twice the size of Greece’s gross domestic product. This protracted dispute will result in desirable carnage if Greece defaults, thereby becoming a constructively frightening example to all democracies doling out unsustainable, growth-suppressing entitlements.

In January, Greek voters gave power to the left-wing Syriza party, one third of which, The Economist reports, consists of “Maoists, Marxists and supporters of Che Guevara.”

Memo to GOP: Don’t Fix Obamacare

Share

by Mike Needhamrom at the Daily Signal

Many Republicans are watching ongoing developments in the King v. Burwell Obamacare case with trepidation. In the abstract, most recognize the opportunity such a case represents to roll back Obamacare and force a debate about real, pro-market insurance reform.

But as the decision looms, many now have second thoughts, convinced that the country will blame them for disruption in the ruling’s wake and that eventually, the only politically tolerable option will be to cave and restore the Obamacare subsidies eliminated by the Supreme Court.

That assumption is wrong, and Republicans will do more harm than good for their cause if they act on it.

According to a new poll conducted by the American Perceptions Initiative at The Heritage

This video was produced last year. It is but one graphic example of what is wrong with this tax.

Tammy Keener of Sinking Spring was accompanied by about 30 like-minded people when she paid her Wilson School District property tax in small bills at the Fulton Bank in West Lawn.”This is not a political thing, and this is not to make the bank teller’s day any harder,” Keener

Obama: Courts not needed on health care law

Share

by Robert Romano at Net Right Daily and Americans for Limited Government

“This should be an easy case. Frankly, it probably shouldn’t even have been taken up.”

That was President Barack Obama at the G-7 summit in Germany blasting the Supreme Court for daring to even question whether a key portion of the health care law should be enforced as written in the upcoming King v. Burwell decision.

At issue is a controversial Internal Revenue Service (IRS) rule that allows health care subsidies to be paid through federal exchanges.

The controversy is that the health care law only ever authorized subsidies to private insurers to be paid through the state exchanges, not the federal ones. By not setting up state exchanges,

Watchdog Podcast: Code Blue–Ohio’s Medicaid expansion already $1 billion over budget

Share

by Eric Boehm and Jason Hart | Watchdog Radio.

Code Blue is Watchdog Radio’s weekly look at heath issues, ranging from the latest public health debates to small government views on health-care reform.

Medicaid and Medicare are breaking the budgets of states and the federal government, but there are other options out there. Is Obamacare the best we can do?

This week, hosts Eric Boehm and Jason Hart take a look at the Medicaid expansion in Ohio, which is running off the rails after less than a year and a half.

As Hart reported this week, after just 17 months, Gov. John Kasich’s Obamacare expansion has cost federal taxpayers $3.7 billion. That’s over $1 billion more than the Kasich administration projected for the
