While the new Congress deliberates over ways to repeal or defund the Obama Administration’s “healthcare reform” law, twenty states and the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), have filed suit in federal court arguing that the law is unconstitutional and should be struck down immediately. This is the largest of several legal challenges to Obamacare [...]

Last January, President Obama declared, “Jobs must be our number one focus in 2010.”
Since that time, more than 2.5 million Americans have lost their jobs and unemployment stands at 9.6%. Some focus. The President and his Democrat allies in Congress instead chose to unleash a torrent [...]
Maryland’s tight congressional race between Andy Harris and Frank Kratovil pits free-market constitutionalists against false friends in special-interest groups. At stake: the balance of power in the House.
