    Salsa Subsidy Highlights Worst Queso Scenario

    Why go to the mall when you can do your shopping on the floor of Congress? Over the past 12 months, plenty of members have dipped into taxpayers' pockets to deliver gifts to the special interests in their lives. And, thanks to Senator Tom Coburn's (R-Okla.) annual "Wastebook," Americans are learning just how generous they were forced to be. As ... (more)

    ObamaCare Drag Show Aims to Heel

    It looks like the President really is skirting the issues with ObamaCare. Thanks to a new partnership with a Louisiana drag queen show, the administration thinks it's finally tapping into a market it needs to boost enrollment numbers. With the help of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a troupe of transvestites called Wednesday Night Tea has ... (more)

    I Now Pronounce You Man and Wives...

    Turns out, marriage isn't about two people who love each other -- it's about three or five or six. That was Judge Clark Waddoups's opinion in the most explosive ruling the media isn't talking about. Late last week, the U.S. District Judge's ruling should have kicked off the evening news in every major market across America. Instead, his 91-page ... (more)

    Troops, Trouble, and Treasure

    The service members tuning in to tomorrow's Army-Navy game at Lincoln Financial Field may have another reason to cheer. Before jetting off to celebrate Christmas, House members delivered their own package: a Defense Authorization bill that takes some of the uncertainty out of military pay, weapons programs, conscience protections, and other key ...

    Secrecy Clause Plays Santa Claus to Abortion Crowd

    Don't expect Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Congressman John Shimkus (R-Ill.) to be sharing a cup of Christmas wassail anytime soon. The two leaders got into a heated exchange during the HHS chief's latest turn in the House's witness chair. In a scene eerily similar to October 30 when Sebelius first testified, Shimkus pressed the ObamaCare boss ... (more)

    Up on the Hill, There Arose Such a Clatter...

    Senator Harry Reid's (D-Nev.) party got a bench for Christmas -- a federal one. That's the unfortunate effect of the Left's latest power grab, which yesterday yielded its first prize: a radical appointment to the D.C. Circuit Court. Two months ago, the nomination of Patricia Millett, an anti-Christian, anti-marriage ideologue, was a nonstarter ... (more)

    Doc the Halls with Fewer Health Plans...

    The weather may be chilly, but it's nothing compared to people's reactions to ObamaCare. This month, the only thing falling faster than the temperature is the number of the new law's supporters. Making matters worse, the policy's biggest defectors seem to be the ones most crucial to it: the medical community. Thousands of doctors are walking ... (more)

    For Cake Shop, a Make or Bake Moment

    As the owner of Masterpiece Cakes, Jack Phillips is used to making batter. What he's not used to is being battered for his beliefs. Unfortunately for Jack, the two now go hand in hand under a ruling many would argue is its own masterpiece of religious intolerance. The case had been brewing since July 2012, when two homosexuals stormed out of ... (more)

    GOP Suffers from Feud Poisoning

    The only thing that belongs under a "big tent" is a circus. And that's apparently what Republican leaders are aiming for. Unfortunately for conservatives, the GOP's latest sideshow comes at the expense of the party's greatest opportunity: capitalizing on America's disgust for ObamaCare. While Democrats try to change the subject from their epic ... (more)

    Liberals Try in Vein to Change U.S. Blood Ban

    Are you willing to risk contracting HIV to prove how tolerant you are? If the FDA repeals its blood bank policy, you may not have a choice. At this morning's HHS hearing in Maryland, liberal activists did their best to persuade the government to overturn its ban on blood donations from homosexuals. Ironically, this latest push happens to coincide ... (more)
