Sen. McSally Must Avoid the Trap of Counterproductive Prescription Drug Legislation

Senator Martha McSally (R - Arizona) has broadly proven herself a stalwart ally of conservatives, libertarians and the Trump Administration in her brief tenure on Capitol Hill.  A former U.S. Air Force A-10 pilot, her votes have confirmed President Trump's phenomenal array of judicial nominees and advanced his economic agenda to bring us arguably the greatest economic conditions in history.

She must be careful, however, to avoid potentially catastrophic missteps on the issue of healthcare and prescription drugs.

Specifically, Sen. McSally has introduced legislation and supported other Senate Finance Committee proposals that would introduce drug price controls from socialist foreign healthcare systems to the U.S., empower the Department of Health and Human  Services (HHS) to directly…[more]

31 The Facts About the Failed Times Square Bomber: Why the Liberal Establishment Can’t Face Reality

The more we learn about failed Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad, the stranger the initial reporting about him becomes.  The liberals’ rush to downplay any possible connections to Islam and label him a “homegrown” terrorist were blatant attempts to freeze the story before the truth was known.  Now, the facts about Shahzad…

32 Bloomberg Joins All Who Just Say No to New York City Terrorist Trials

As presidential crises go, the opposition of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to a presidential decision would not normally rank high.  When that opposition is the Mayor’s abrupt about-face on trying confessed 9/11 terrorist mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in federal court in New York, it could be the political equivalent of a detonator…

33 Terror and Honesty

From the second that Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano assured Americans that “the system worked” in the aftermath of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s attempt to take down a Northwest Airlines flight on Christmas Day, it was obvious that the national debate over terrorism was slipping down the rabbit hole to a world of talking…

34 National Security After the "Undie-Bomber"

One of the best reasons to oppose the expansion of government is that it often leads to overlapping responsibilities.  Duplicate enough of the work, and it becomes nearly impossible to figure out who’s in charge.  Maybe that’s why President Barack Obama announced that “the buck stops” with him after a would-be suicide…

35 Remembering Patriot Day

Not to stoke the fires for those of you lamenting being back in your office, but this should have been a three-day workweek.  On Monday, millions of Americans got the day off to commemorate Labor Day – a holiday whose inauspicious origins are rooted in organized labor’s mob violence and vandalism in turn-of-the-century Chicago.&…

36 Federalism Means Never Having to Say You’re Sorry

The Department of Homeland Security, never known for its institutional elegance (these are, after all, the people who brought us the color-coded terror alert system), reached a new low last week with the release of an Intelligence Assessment Report warning of the dangers of resurgent right-wing extremism in America. The report deservedly drew the…

37 Speaker Pelosi Loves William Jefferson More Than Homeland Security, Ethics and Maybe Even All Those Grandchildren

Last week, Washington's Culture of Corruption went from just plain disgusting to full-out scary. Many Americans missed the turn, consumed as they were by the need to get Anna Nicole Smith buried and justice gone wild in the pursuit thereof. The turn was there nonetheless, as word leaked that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi intends to appoint William J…
