Turn, Turn, Turn – A Season for Healthcare Policy

Today, I heard the news.  President Obama supports the Wyden-Brown amendment allowing states to innovate on healthcare reform.  You’ll have to pardon some of us while we readjust the mirrors. Just 20 brief months ago, I recall the trepidation and trauma that surrounded allowing the U.S. House of Representatives Education and ... continue reading

'An Economic Philosophy That Has Completely Failed'

I get President Obama's "regulatory review" plan, I really do. His game plan is a straight steal from President Clinton's strategy after the Republican's 1994 congressional triumph. Clinton's strategy was to steal the Republican Party's play book. I know that Clinton's strategy was considered brilliant politics (particularly by the Clintonites), ... continue reading

What Aspect of Dealing with Bullies Did Obama Fail to Learn as a Child?
