    Telling Secrets on Abortion Coverage

    As Congress debates ObamaCare, one issue that almost stopped the law in 2009 -- yet still receives scant media coverage -- is the law's subsidies for abortion coverage.

    Drawing Default Lines

    The United States of America will not go into default any time in the near future. That's a pretty strong statement to make, but it's true. Why? Because we have a lot of money with which to make good on our loans. As I noted in yesterday's Update, our government collects, on average, $206 billion a month. The average per-month interest on our ... (more)

    A Shock to the System

    ObamaCare enrollment problems continue into day three of the partial government shutdown, as online error messages, delays, and other "glitches" persist.

    Insuring Disaster

    ObamaCare isn't connecting with voters -- and yesterday, it just plain wasn't connecting with anything! System failures, network crashes, and error messages seemed to multiply from one state exchange to the next, ruining the rollout of what was supposed to be the answer to America's health care prayers.

    Open Eyes on a Shutdown Government

    For the first time in 17 years, the federal government has partially shut down. House Republicans offered the Senate three different compromises on ObamaCare, only to be rebuffed by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) three times.

    As the CR Turns...

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) may be asleep, but his chamber is anything but. While the GOP's ironman catches a few winks after his 21-hour ObamaCare beat down, the rest of his colleagues are buzzing around, trying to speed up a vote on the government's short-term budget bill. After some debate, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is pushing for a ... (more)
