In a sign of a split within the Democratic party over a public option in the healthcare reform, top party and government officials have been sending contradicting signals in recent days.
During the last few weeks, several immigration reform advocates have issued announcements designed to attract attention to the cost the American society is paying due to undocumented as well as legal aliens who continue to arrive in the country.
Opponents of the public option in President Obama’s proposed healthcare plan often charge it will worsen the already large federal budget deficit, but the National Inflation Association (NIA) has gone a step further by suggesting it will lead the U.S. dollar to collapse.
Public opinion polls have suggested Sarah Palin’s popularity appears to be declining. According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey, a total of 39 percent of respondents have a favorable view.
What some consider as a wasteful government spending program is getting even more criticism, this time from New York auto dealers who are considering pulling out of Cash for Clunkers.
As the debate continues about the shape of the proposed healthcare reform, ProEnglish says translation costs may add billions of dollars to the already stretched Medicare budget.
Although supporters of immigration say aliens do work that Americans do not want to do, new studies have shown this may not be the case.
Senator Arlen Specter’s town hall meetings on healthcare may have been disrupted like those of many other Democrats, but he has stressed his support for the reform is not unconditional.
Although he began writing Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto long before Barack Obama was elected president, Mark R. Levin’s book on the conservative and liberal political philosophies couldn’t have been more timely.
In the book he dissects the two political philosophies and how they differ in their views on personal liberty. In doing so he brings to light what the Founders of our country believed and why they believed as they did. He also unveils the insidious nature of liberalism and how those who believe in that philosophy feel about the rights of individuals, the states and the Federal Government, and how liberalism—or Statism as he calls it—leads to tyranny.
Levin also lays out a course for conservatives to follow if they want to reclaim the freedoms that are being lost daily and stem the tide of liberalism.
In an effort to dispel what he sees as misconceptions about the proposed healthcare reform, President Obama addressed a town hall meeting in New Hampshire on Tuesday.
