The Tea Party adherents in the House continue to hold the speaker's feet to the fire while the president's poll numbers continue to decline.

ObamaCare supporters are finding out the hard way that there's no such thing as free healthcare: Their insurance rates are skyrocketing.

President Obama’s healthcare law is full of increased costs to taxpayers, in the form of taxes, higher premiums, and of course, fines. In fact, the healthcare law will likely punish charitable hospitals for treating uninsured Americans by issuing large fines to those institutions that continue to provide treatment to uninsured Americans.

There is really nothing complicated about the facts. The Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted all the money required to keep all government activities going — except for ObamaCare.

As part of what critics have called a presidential “temper tantrum” aimed at extorting taxpayer money to fund ObamaCare, the Obama administration has been hard at work trying to make the partial federal government “shutdown” feel as painful as possible.

Obama railed about the shutdown of part of the Head Start pre-school nutritional assistance program though he’d said he’d veto GOP bills for similar programs.

Can there be a more fruitful source of dispute, or a kind of dispute more difficult to be settled— James Madison speaking at the Constitutional Convention of 1787 on the spending bill battles between the House and Senate that would occur.

Leaked documents show that GOP House Speaker John Boehner’s office spent months working with top Democrats such as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to ensure that lawmakers and their staff would be spared from the deeply unpopular healthcare “reforms.” 

The House Republican leadership has adopted Texas Senator Ted Cruz's strategy for fighting back against the Obama administration promise to vote down all government spending until the House approves a spending bill funding ObamaCare.

The Times provided a much-needed insight into the politics and principles guiding those few statesman who are determined to repeal ObamaCare and begin the long trek back to freedom.
