    By all means, please tell us about the job-killing consequences of the monstrous law you voted for twice, former Democratic Senator: The Supreme Court decision in June upholding the Affordable Care Act leaves in place a tax on medical devices that threatens thousands of American jobs and our global competitiveness. It will also stifle critical medical innovation in the industry that gave us defibrillators, pacemakers, artificial joints, stents, chemotherapy delivery systems and almost every device we depend on to save lives. The 2.3% tax will be charged to manufacturers on each sale and takes effect in January. Many U.S. device...

    ...As a for-profit institution, CEC has faced increasing pressure from the Obama administration and Senate Democrats in the past year. A proposed "gainful employment" rule from the Department of Education would deny federal funding to schools with graduates facing high proportions of debt related to their expected salaries. ...Mr. Miller cited the "gainful employment" rule as a major factor in CEC's decision to close the Pittsburgh school, and he predicted that it would soon affect other for-profit schools in the area.

    Is John Boehner caving in to Democrat demands not to use the phrase “job-killing?” In the wake of last week’s Tucson shootings, there has been a plethora of demands made by Democrats who say that they will work towards reducing the instances of violent spree-killers like Jared Loughner. Some Democrat proposals are just downright insane (like Robert Brady’s demand to “outlaw” crosshairs from speech and maps), while others are just downright audacious (like Chellie Pingree’s demand that the GOP remove “job-killing” from their vocabulary and description of Obamacare). Any way you cut it, these Democrat demands are barely disguised attempts...

    There are times when I flirt with the notion that the country would be better off with divided government. If Republicans took control, say, of the House, there would be pressure on both parties to behave more responsibly. The GOP would be pushed to stop carping and posturing, and start governing. Democrats would have political cover to make hard choices on entitlement spending, taxes and the like. As every politician knows, bipartisan cliff-jumping is a safer sport than going solo. That's the theory. Then there's John Boehner. The man who would be speaker outlined his agenda Tuesday in a speech...

    It didn't take long for businesses — especially in Illinois — to start feeling ObamaCare's job-killing punch. While most of the punishing mandates and taxes don't start immediately, public accounting rules operate on a more timely basis. Some businesses have disclosed that their value will be negatively impacted by the new health reform law. In the last week, four major Illinois-based companies — Boeing, Caterpillar, Deere & Co. and Illinois Tool Works — have announced they will take charges of $150 million, $100 million, $150 million and $22 million, respectively, because of one provision in the new law. In order...
