Coalition Guest Commentary - Rep. John Carter: Examining the Evidence on Health Care Reform

There was an old country judge that had the highest criminal conviction rate in the state. When a reporter from the state capital came down to investigate this judicial phenomenon, the judge explained that he simply instructed the jury to listen very carefully to what the prosecutor had to say, then make their decision. The reporter cried indignantly, "Don't you also tell them to listen to the defense?" The judge replied, "Well, I used to, but it just confused ‘em."

The Cure for What Ails Healthcare Reform: Competition and Free Markets

The growing public skepticism toward President Obama's federal takeover of American health care is a welcome reminder of the wisdom and responsibility of the American people.

Pro-Life Senators' Open Letter to Obama

Dr. Coburn and 35 U.S. Senators recently sent the following letter to President Obama expressing “grave concern about the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) recent proposal to rescind the January 2009 rule clarifying conscience protections for Americans serving in the health care field.”  As many of you know, Dr. Coburn, and many pro-life physicians, will go to jail before complying with these new regulations.

Where is the fiscal restraint?

"This will not be easy.  It will require us to make difficult decisions and face challenges we've long neglected."

- President Obama, during his summit on fiscal responsibility at the White House.

In spite of the rhetoric from the President, government spending is completely out of control in Washington.  As American families across the country cut back and tighten their belts, Washington has cut loose and is spending like there is no tomorrow.
