The Longest Congressional Campaign And The House Leadership Battle

We have grown used to long presidential campaigns. Those begin the day after the "off-year" election ends, and we ought to expect "exploratory committees" and even formal declarations of a campaign for the presidency to pour forth in November and December of this year. 2014-04-22T09:40:00-04:00 2014-04-23T03:35:04Z Hugh Hewitt

ACA Does Not Help the Nation’s Poor!

TownHall Latest columns - Tue, 04/22/2014 - 22:35
Now that the ACA has been in effect for a few months, the unintended consequences of the law are becoming clearer. Initially, the obvious problem was that far more insurance plans were being canceled under the ACA’s regulations than were being selected in the exchanges. This seemed to defeat the ACA’s goal of expanding healthcare coverage. The higher premiums that younger healthier adults were being charged to subsidize the care of those who were older or who had preexisting health conditions also attracted a lot of attention. But not much has been made of the ACA’s effect on the segment of population it was supposed to help the most: the poor. 2014-04-22T09:30:00-04:00 2014-04-23T03:35:04Z Harry R. Jackson, Jr.

The Return of Robin Hood

TownHall Latest columns - Tue, 04/22/2014 - 22:35
A prime reason for subscribing to the New York Times -- a cultural misdeed for which I regularly beat my breast -- is that of tapping into the Times' tips concerning what real, bona fide Forward Thinkers are thinking at a given moment. Like now, when opinion leaders are lining up to assure us the return of Robin Hood economics is way overdue. 2014-04-22T01:14:00-04:00 2014-04-23T03:35:04Z Bill Murchison

Close Call: Obama Successfully Avoids Another Presidential Moment

TownHall Latest columns - Tue, 04/22/2014 - 22:35
It’s beginning to look like President Obama has developed a chronic aversion to anything that might be mistaken for “leadership” in his second term. The Keystone XL pipeline was, again, delayed until after the election season. 2014-04-22T00:53:00-04:00 2014-04-23T03:35:04Z Michael Schaus

Faith in Obamacare, or Government, is Misplaced

TownHall Latest columns - Tue, 04/22/2014 - 22:35
One of the reasons our political structure has become dysfunctional no matter which party is in power is that too many of us are living in the moment. The closest we get to history is the instant replay. 2014-04-22T00:01:00-04:00 2014-04-23T03:35:04Z Cal Thomas

Earth Day this year is marked with dueling reports about what climate change means for the future of our planet. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC) has declared that human activity is the cause of most of the temperature increases of recent decades, and warns that sea levels could conceivably rise by more than three feet by the end of the century if emissions continue at a runaway pace. 2014-04-22T00:01:00-04:00 2014-04-23T03:35:04Z H.

A Note To The Jews: Be Prepared To Fight Back

TownHall Latest columns - Tue, 04/22/2014 - 22:35
Last week in Ukraine, leaflets were being disseminated saying Jews were required to register with the government or face being thrown out of the country and their possessions seized. More and more, they have been debunked as a hoax. Jews in America, and worldwide, should nonetheless take this seriously, and recognize that - when the time comes - if they don't fight back, they will die. 2014-04-22T00:01:00-04:00 2014-04-23T03:35:04Z Tony Katz
