$304 Million Dollars and Not a Single Person Covered
The Obamacare success stories just keep coming in. From the bright minds that brought you healthcare.gov, it has now been revealed that the federal government has spent over $304 million dollars in grants for the Cover Oregon health insurance Web site, which has not covered one single American. Apparently the only way you can get health insurance in Oregon is through a "hybrid" model in which you sign up on the Web site but then have to finish your registration on paper, as opposed to just filling out the health insurance form on paper to begin with.

Operation Dirty Money?
By Kerry Lutz
A look at the official government Web site moneyfactory.gov purports to show vast quantities of currency being produced - over 70 million 20s in December alone. So my question is where are these notes? Last week I visited my bank and had a talk with the branch manager. I asked him when he last received a shipment of new notes. Other than $100 notes, he couldn't recall. While this is all hearsay, I've approached a number of people asking the same question, "Look in your pocket and see if you've got any new notes." The result is always the same, only worn out filthy notes in poor condition. [more...]
"The Pledge is a Political Weapon"
By Joe Messina
So says two Bangor Maine Council Members. I had to read it twice myself. They refuse to stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance because they believe it's being used as a political weapon. How, you ask? They won't answer that question. That's right. As some do, they simply make a statement to justify their crazy, ludicrous actions, even when they have nothing to stand on, and expect you to believe what they're saying. They actually think they are making a statement, but can't tell you what "statement" it is. Looks like we'll just have to guess since they won't respond. [more...]
A Bleak Outlook for College Grads
The outlook for recent college graduates continues to be disheartening for the majority of young Americans. According to the Center for College Affordability & Productivity, 48% of employed U.S. college graduates are in jobs that don't require a four-year degree and 37% are employed in positions that require only a high school diploma. Recent graduates are forced into accepting jobs that are below their skill sets due to the increasingly fierce job market of today. The official unemployment rate for grads under age 25 is 7%, not reflecting all those who are under-utilized in one way or another. Nearly 8% of grads are working part-time, but would like full-time positions. [more...]
Labor Unions are Showing Their True Colors... Again
By Dave Bego
The past two weeks the big labor Gasping Dinosaurs have once again shown their true colors, proving that they will do anything to avoid extinction. They are desperate in their attempts to find new ways to bring in money as they continue to see dwindling membership. First, the United Steel Workers used its patented tactics of misdirection, misinformation and intimidation to unionize Northwestern University Football players, knowing this could open the door to organize thousands of members across the country. C'mon guys, now you're going after naive and inexperienced college athletes! [more...]
How Many People Have Really Signed Up - and Paid - for ObamaCare?
This week on The Political Insiders: Why won't the administration tell us how many people have really paid for their ObamaCare coverage? Is Putin out-maneuvering the President? What does recent polling tell us about American surrender of the Internet and our manned space program? Are D.C. lobbyists prepping to rig the system even more if the GOP takes control of the Senate?
