News and Commentary for October 18 and 19

Victory

“Conservatives have an ace in the hole, and that is Barack Obama.” Americans Must Suffer

“In truth, the resolution of these issues – even for 4 months – probably means that the one thing the Democrats couldn’t afford happen is going to happen; Obamacare will be an issue – perhaps the #1 issue – in midterms next November.” Why are the Democrats Gloating about Winning?

“The renowned money manager goes back to school to explain how entitlements are helping the Baby Boomers rip off future generations.” Stanley Druckenmiller: How Washington Really Redistributes Income

“When it comes to the so-called shutdown, what many of us have seen thus far is some shuttered national parks, a few closed monuments, and ongoing squabbling in D.C.—in other words, business as usual. That’s because most of what government does, it’s still doing. If life for most people goes on as before, we only make government sound worthless when we speak as if it’s been closed down.” Don’t Call It a Shutdown: How the Crisis Could Still Come Back to Bite Democrats

Power shifts. “The bargain rushed through Congress on Wednesday night clobbers the U.S. Constitution. It shifts control over the debt ceiling from Congress to the president, in violation of Article 1, Section 8, and pushes the nation toward a slippery slope of allowing the president unlimited power to borrow.” A Tyrant’s Dream: Congress Cedes Control Of Federal Debt

Didn’t you know the Obama administration is blameless in EVERYTHING! “Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is even refusing to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee in a hearing this coming Thursday. HHS claims she has scheduling conflicts, but we hope she isn’t in the White House catacomb under interrogation by Valerie Jarrett about her department’s incompetence.” Sebelius on the Run

“The liberal view of health care is easy to describe: health care is too complex and complicated for individuals to make good choices on their own. Therefore they need bureaucracies — employers, insurance companies or government — to make decisions for them. What this view overlooks is that the primary reason why the system is complex is because the bureaucracies are meddling with it in the first place.” How the Left Views Health Care

“One question, I suppose, is where exactly are the successors of these titans? Not, I think, in Washington, D.C.” Remembering America
