Steve Bannon Is Right. It’s Time to Deconstruct the Administrative State.

In his first public remarks since the election, White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon recently told a packed house at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that the “deconstruction of the administrative state” was one of the major goals of the Trump administration. In so doing, Bannon took aim at our modern form of government, in which legislative, executive, and judicial powers are delegated to myriad agencies and bureaus that have come to comprise a fourth branch of government. For constitutionalists of all stripes, the administrative state undermines the idea of representative government by empowering bureaucrats at the expense of legislators.

Kevin Drum of Mother Jones, for instance, heard racist undertones lurking behind Bannon’s call. “Bannon’s … Read entire article »

Mitch McConnell Finds ‘Lot to Like’ in GOP’s Obamacare Replacement Bill

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stumped Thursday for House Republican leadership’s American Health Care Act at a press event, saying, “There’s a lot to like about it.” “It repeals a significant number of taxes on the American people, [and] Republicans usually like repealing taxes,” McConnell said, in a jab at conservative lawmakers who are balking at the Obamacare replacement plan. During the event sponsored in Washington by Politico, the Kentucky Republican said the bill would be the first chance to reform Medicaid as well as a big step toward creating a working private health insurance market.

Hill Staffers in Security Probe Said to Keep Stepmom in ‘Captivity’ to Access Cash

Congressional staffers are accused of holding their stepmother in “captivity” with violent threats in a plan to use her to access money stashed away in the Middle East.

Days before U.S. Capitol Police told House members that three Pakistani brothers who ran their computer networks may have stolen congressional data, their stepmother called police in Fairfax County, Virginia, to say the Democratic staffers were keeping her from her husband’s deathbed.

5 Reasons the GOP’s Obamacare Plan Isn’t Real Repeal

Republicans have promised time and again to repeal Obamacare—not fix it, not try to make it better—they promised to repeal it. Here are five reasons the American Health Care Act put forward by GOP leadership does not fulfill that promise. 1) The bill does not fully repeal Obamacare. If you have a faulty foundation, nothing you build on top of it is stable or sustainable. Tweaking a little here and there is not going to get the job done. Obamacare should be completely repealed before any replacement or reforms are introduced. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Republicans already have the model for this in their 2015 repeal bill. Every single GOP senator voted for that legislation. There was just one problem at the time: Barack Obama was president. Now, under a President Donald Trump, … Read entire article »

Washington Post refers to Planned Parenthood as ‘nonpartisan’ (which is as ridiculous as calling the WaPo ‘objective’)

**Written by Doug Powers In an attempt to explain parts of the GOP’s Obamacare replacement plan, the Washington Post offered this summary of Planned Parenthood: 3) It would also defund Planned Parenthood. The nonpartisan health care clinic, which also performs abortions, has been in conservatives’ crosshairs for more than a year now.
