Unconstitutional Uses of Drones Must Stop

Last week I joined several of my colleagues in sending a letter to President Obama requesting clarification of his criteria for the lethal use of drones overseas. Administration officials assure us that a “high degree of confidence” is required that the person targeted by a drone is a terrorist. However, press reports have suggested that

The Supreme Court and Obamacare

Last week the Supreme Court heard arguments concerning the constitutionality of the Obamacare law, focusing on the mandate requiring every American to buy health insurance or pay fines enforced by the IRS.

Yemen on the Brink: Implications for U.S. Policy

I am extremely concerned over current US policy toward Yemen, which I believe will backfire and leave the United States less safe and much poorer.

The federal government needs to hire 600,000 people over the next three years, including 273,000 for “mission-critical’ positions, according to a survey released Thursday by a statist think tank. The numbers reflect, in part, the fact that many existing federal employees will reach retirement age over the next few years. The other part is the

The Big Bailout Circus

The Big Bailout Circus has the nation in stitches. Taxpayers are being sewn into a skin-tight forever suit by an amazingly bipartisan group of government clowns. But despite the agreement about the need for a slap dash redo of the U.S. financial system — and by extension our political system — the designing bozos disagree
