Earlier this month, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) proposed sweeping new regulations that would speed up union organizing, while violating employees’ privacy and taking away their voices.
Included in the new regulations is a controversial rule that would delay employers’ legal challenges until after the organization election occurs, including whether certain workers are even eligible [...]
For the last several months we’ve heard the mantra of income inequality. We’ve heard from the president and his minions in the House and the Senate that something should be done to make incomes equal. The president even said he would raise the minimum wage requirement by executive order on a small segment of federal [...]
As the investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s illegal targeting of conservative groups continues to expand, questions are starting to emerge regarding whether such targeting is limited to the IRS. Of course, the full story regarding the IRS is far from being told, with key people asserting the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and others [...]
For those of you aren’t familiar, in 2011 the Treasury sold its remaining shares of Chrysler to Fiat – at a loss of $1.34 billion. However, they claimed the sale was “further evidence of the success of the Administration’s actions to assist the US auto industry.” I’m not sure about you, but I’m willing to [...]
Let’s play a game – which really is not a game at all since you and I have no chance of winning. Below are some of the taxes that will be imposed as part of the implementation of Obamacare. Your part in this “game” is to see how many either directly or indirectly impact you [...]
There have been more that 30 alternatives to Obamacare since the passage of the so-called “Affordable” Heathcare Act was passed. There were many alternatives presented during the debate. The then Democrat controlled House and Senate didn’t want debate, and they still don’t. Congressman Price has always led the pack on this.
From Congressman Price’s office:
Congressman Tom [...]
During a trip to Ireland, one thing stood out to me, which explains most of Europe’s high unemployment and slow economic growth: a lack of entrepreneurial spirit. It has led to economic malaise, and it has spread to the United States.
Our bus driver in Ireland was an affable, 50-ish gentleman. He had worked union jobs [...]

SHOT: Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NY) Says IRS Needs More Funding: “The IRS simply cannot sustain itself with this overall funding level. Although I am certain that some would view this as a good step, I disagree. There is no clearer way to promote more scandals than by cutting funding …” (Rep. Jose Serrano, [...]
It has been a scandal-plagued month for the Obama Administration. First, new details emerged about the Benghazi cover up. Then there were back-to-back revelations that the IRS was targeting conservative groups and the Justice Department was tapping the phones of reporters.
Now a fourth: Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has been shaking down the [...]
When I read Tim Lee’s op-ed in Forbes.com yesterday, I was reminded that both of Georgia’s Senators supported the Durbin Amendment when even the uber-liberal former Congressman Barney Frank admitted that it was a disaster that harmed consumers. We shouldn’t have to ask Georgia Senators to move to the right of Barney Frank or commit to fix [...]
Despite the tough times in Georgia, our leaders keep expanding state government by centralizing more power in Atlanta, spending more of our tax dollars, and increasing our taxes. The state funded portion of our budget has grown from 17.4 billion dollars to 19.9 billion dollars in 3 years. Significant taxing authority has been transferred from [...]
Rep. Phil Gingrey appeared on Zoller and Bryant this morning on Cox Media Group. He talked about the budget proposal, welfare reform and his possible senate race. On the budget, he acknowledged that Rep. Ryan left in all the taxes for Obamacare while assuming the repeal of the plan. In addition, he noted that a [...]
Hooray to Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) for putting out a budget that balances in 10 years. But he doesn’t go far enough.
Let’s back up and take a look at what led up to this budget. President Obama is required, as all presidents are, to present a budget framework by the first week in February. He [...]
