    Washington, DC—Representative James Lankford (R-OK), Chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee, today introduced the House Joint Resolution legislative proposal for the Health Care Compact, a breakthrough governance reform that allows states to clean up the health care mess created by the federal government. “The Health Care Compact is a way for states to protect their residents from the top-down, one-size-fits-all health care ‘solutions’ that have been imposed from Washington DC, including Obamacare,” said Lankford. “The compact transfers health care decision-making authority and responsibility from the federal level to member states. Those member states are then free to implement their...

    The United Federation of Teachers -- one of President Obama's key political backers -- is the biggest beneficiary of a White House sweetheart deal that will exempt certain outfits from complying with new health-care rules, officials revealed yesterday. The quietly approved federal waivers for 30 companies, health insurers, unions and other groups across the country means the UFT doesn't have to gradually phase out caps on annual health coverage like everyone else. The UFT was concerned that could have been a major financial hit on the union. The one-year waiver, approved last month by the Department of Health and Human...

    “I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase.

    President Obama has selected Dr. Donald Berwick to head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Berwick is a Harvard professor, a pediatrician, and the CEO of a nonprofit that, according to its website, has a staff of over 100 people. These seem like dubious qualifications to head a massive organization with a budget greater than that of the Department of Defense. As Jeffrey Anderson explains, however, Dr. Berwick is a perfect pick for Obama. For like Obama, Berwick believes that our health-care system should be run through Washington, and that the bureaucracy should exercise a strong degree of control...

We have already noted the strange assignment of health-insurance approval to the IRS, an agency with no expertise in the field whatsoever. Now it appears that the IRS will have to hire a lot more people to track an avalanche of paperwork, too: Most people know about the individual mandate in the new health care bill, but the bill contained another mandate that could be far more...

    During the past few months we have witnessed a sorry spectacle of lawmaking within the U.S. Congress. House Democrats were meeting for the purpose of approving a Senate Health Care Reform Bill. Moderate members appeared to be wrestling with their conscience, liberal members were whining for more entitlements, and some appeared oblivious to the bill’s contents. The monstrous Senate Health Care Reform Bill (over 2000 pages) was crafted by Senate Democrats behind closed doors, without Republican participation, passed by Democrat votes and then presented to the House of Representatives for approval. The bill was terribly flawed, very confusing and, essentially,...

Lynn Jenkins, a Topeka Republican, publicly urged Six to file suit earlier this month; she was later joined by U.S. Rep. Todd Tiahrt and numerous state lawmakers. Now the question is whether some...

    Leftists have an anomalous disposition towards this country's history, the Founding Fathers, and the Constitution. The expanding chasm between what the documented intentions were of the Founders, and the fantastical and unsupportable conjecture of the Founders intentions by Leftist ideologues, are inexhaustible. The truth of the Founders intentions and the true meaning of the Constitution lie not in Supreme Court case law, not in manufactured history by the Left, and certainly not in the ideological cesspool of the Democratic Party. The truth lies in reading the Constitution, a knowledge of history, and studying the commentaries by the authors, which clearly...

But Stupak seemed a perfect match for this sprawling, largely rural district.

In short, it strikes directly at America’s core principles. This is shameful moment in the history of our country — and especially the Democratic Party, which has apparently come unmoored from whatever remaining attachment it had to the ideals of our Founders. In place of a dedication to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” there is only a rapacious impulse to...

    Meetings between House and Senate Democratic leaders and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel lasted on into Tuesday evening and were aimed at crafting a series of legislative maneuvers that would result in the passage of the president’s healthcare nationalization plan by late next week.
