Obamacare - A House of Cards

The latest insurance company to pull out of the Obamacare exchanges because of financial losses shines a light on the slippery foundation upon which it was set up. In the haste to be all things to all people in order to sell it, little thought was given to how it would actually work; and now the ‘unintended’ consequences continue to pile up.  If proponents of overhauling the healthcare system had practiced critical thinking instead of pursing their goal to pass a progressive agenda at all costs, they would have seen this coming. These are the fatal flaws that make Obamacare unsustainable despite all of the rhetoric that it can be made better... [more...]

They Don't Have the Votes for TPP

The votes for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) do not exist at this time. Big qualifier... "at this time." Here is what I know: My education task is, and has been, to show legislators and staffers how trade deals have helped cause our trade deficit, and enabled new mercantilism like currency manipulation. I also make sure everyone knows that the government's own economic projections state that growth will not occur from the TPP, the trade deficit will worsen, and jobs will not be created. Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and anonymous GOP whip team folks have told the press, or us, that the votes for TPP are not there.  The non-public declarations have been more assertive than the public ones.

Trump Grabs the Momentum

Despite mainstream media rumblings that the 2016 presidential race is virtually over, GOP nominee Donald Trump recently took hold of the ball and with his eye firmly on the goalpost is making a run for it. In recent days, Trump invited new people on board his campaign team, made a series of policy related speeches, expressed regret for hurt he may previously have caused with ill-chosen words, started a dialogue with voters in communities of color, took a trip to flood-stricken Louisiana to comfort folks and provide much-needed supplies, and revved up his television ads in some key battleground states. Any one of these actions could potentially have altered the electoral trajectory. However, the finely tuned effort, which was carried out within a condensed timeframe, has had the effect of softening the negative narrative that the mainstream media had crafted and giving Trump an image boost in the process.

Trump Reboots While Clinton Relaxes

Trump has decided to pivot away from many distractions and focus on rebooting his campaign on the issues that won him the nomination. That said, Trump will probably continue to send out tweets that criticize some of his harshest critics. That seems to be part of his personal style. While Trump is changing his campaign style and content, Clinton schedules only a few campaign appearances and focuses more on raising money. At latest count, it’s been 260 days since her last press conference.  Her campaign strategy appears to be... [Go here for a complete analysis...]

From Basketball to Business

Kobe Bryant may be stepping out of the basketball spotlight, but he’s not done showcasing his talents for all to see.  The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that the retired NBA player is teaming up with entrepreneur and investor Jeff Stibel to launch a $100 million venture capital fund. Bryant is one of the greatest stars in NBA history, having played his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, winning 5 championships, and setting franchise and league records. His legacy will live on as an investor and businessman. [more...]

Trump's Ace-in-the-Hole - The Black Vote

Black Americans are the key to Trump’s victory. They will put Trump over the top and will make him President Donald J. Trump. I believe Trump will attract the most African American votes of any Republican presidential candidate in modern history. He will get upwards of 15 percent of the black vote, with a shot at 20 percent. Why do I say this? First of all, because things have never been worse for black Americans living in the inner cities of America. Pick a city: Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, New Orleans. The poverty, hopelessness, homelessness, unemployment, violence, murder, drugs, inferior education for their kids - all of it has never been worse. [more...]

Can Trump's Staff Changes Turn the Race Around or is it Already Too Late?

Where does the presidential race now stand? Does The Donald’s newest staff shake-up – his second in two months -  improve his chances of coming back and winning or is it already too late? What about Hillary’s spate of troubles? Will these things ever hurt her? This – and much more – will be discussed by the POLITICAL INSIDERS – live - on Fox News Channel this Sunday evening – at 7:30 PM ET. [more...]
