House Speaker John Boehner is right when he says President Obama should reimburse the taxpayers for travel expenses connected with campaigning. In fact, Boehner and the Republicans should reimburse the taxpayers as well. They should reimburse the taxpayers for the trillions of dollars taken from them to fund things the government is not authorized by the Constitution to do in the first place.
Executive Orders to reduce regulatory burdens on the economy, such as the one issued last week by President Obama, are likely to have little if any effect. A better solution is for Congress, which created the monstrous regulatory state, and which still has the power to shut it down, to starve the agencies by failing to renew their requests for operating funds.
A new study published by the Health Care Cost Institute (HCCI) could proffer a formidable challenge to the Obama administration’s regulated approach to tapering healthcare costs, as the analysis found that healthcare spending is growing moderately, up 3.3 percent in 2010 but still three times the pace of general inflation.

While most media accounts of the Chicago NATO Summit have focused on the revolutionary activities of street protesters and alleged bomb plotters, the real revolutionary activity was being carried out by the NATO leaders themselves, in their support for expanded NATO missions and powers that usurp national sovereignty and are not subject to constitutional checks and balances.
In the face of the $500 billion "taxmageddon" tax increase coming in 2012, Congress will pass the buck. Nothing is likely to happen before the election, and the lame duck Congress will then drop-kick the issue into next year by extending current law and letting the new Congress deal with it.
