In Bay State, more taxes, fewer jobs
Boston Herald, by Holly Robichaud

Original Article

Brace for impact because 2013 is not an election year, so Bacon Hill politicians will be up to their old tricks. You can count on the following helping next year: After months of Gov. Patrick galavanting around the country on behalf of the Obama campaign and failing to focus on the home front, the commonwealth is facing revenue problems. Instead of focusing on the heart of the economic problem, Deval and Bacon Hill leaders will raise our taxes. It is not a matter of if. It is a matter of when and how much.

Ironic that the "birth place" of taxation without representation is in MA.

As the State is overwhelmingly liberal/Dem., they should be embracing, acutually welcoming massive tax increases. I say start taxing heavily the prestigous universities that keep tunring out these morons that have no clue about mathematics and economics.

I hoped that the State is taxed into bankuptcy and the hippie liberals go on welfare where they belong.

Sen. Lee: Congress Chooses Not

Cybercast News Service, by Barbara Hollingsworth    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/5/2014 4:19:10 PM     Post Reply
Although Congress still has the “power of the purse,” it chooses not to withhold funding whenever President Obama tries to do an end-run around it by issuing executive orders because members of both parties are content with passing all-or-nothing spending bills that take this constitutional option off the table, says Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah). CNSNews.com asked Lee why Congress has not used its constitutional authority to rein-in such presidential overreach. “Yeah, Congress has not done that, and it’s a source of great frustration to me," the Utah Republican replied. "A lot of it has to do with the fact that

Jay Carney Denies IRS Corruption:

White House press secretary Jay Carney assured ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl that President Obama did not “misspeak” when he said that there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the IRS targeting scandal. President Obama made the remark to Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly in their Super Bowl Sunday interview. Carney told Karl that there were “at least 20 news organizations” that agreed with an independent Investigator General who said, back in May, that he found no evidence “that anyone outside of the IRS” participated in any “inappropriate targeting of conservative, or progressive for that matter,

WASHINGTON — Conservative Republicans on Wednesday ruled out any immigration legislation in the House this year, insisting that the GOP should wait until next year when the party might also control the Senate. House GOP leaders unveiled their broad immigration principles last week that gave hope to advocates and the Obama administration that the first changes in the nation’s laws in three decades might happen in the coming months. Immigration legislation is one of the top priorities for Obama’s second term. But several of the conservatives were adamant that the House should do nothing on the issue this year, a

The new head of the IRS has apologized to those who suffered because of the agency’s targeting of conservative groups, after he testified before a House subcommittee for the first time. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told reporters after the hearing before the House Ways and Means Committee that the singling out of such organizations for special scrutiny would be “intolerable,” and vowed the IRS is not doing so now. “It won´t happen going forward,” Koskinen said. “And to the extent that people suffered accordingly, I apologize for that.” Koskinen also expressed concern over the amount of time and manpower being

Israeli Widow Blasts ‘Insensitive’ Kerry Claim

Israeli victims of terrorism lashed out at Secretary of State John Kerry for his “insensitivity” after he inaccurately claimed “not one Israeli was killed by a Palestinian from the West Bank” in a recent speech. During a controversial speech over the weekend in Germany, Kerry threatened Israel with economic boycotts and claimed that the Jewish state is enjoying a respite from Palestinian terrorism. “There’s a momentary prosperity, there’s a momentary peace,” Kerry said. “Last year, not one Israeli was killed by a Palestinian from the West Bank.” However, this is untrue. At least five Israelis were murdered by West Bank

Just hours after filing paperwork with the intention of seeking the California Democratic Party’s endorsement to replace retiring 20-term Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), Democratic activist Sandra Fluke announced on Tuesday that she was passing on that opportunity and aiming instead to be elected to the state Senate. “I am extremely moved by the outpouring of local and national support I have received since I announced that I was considering running for office,” Fluke said in a statement released late Tuesday night. “While I strongly considered offering my candidacy for Congress, I feel there is a better way for me to

It was noticed by many that ABC´s The View featured two conservative guest hosts this week. The diversity of thought displeased some liberals, prompting Whoopi Goldberg to announce that the whole thing wasn´t her idea. Actress Elizabeth Perkins on Sunday tweeted Goldberg, calling the appearance of conservative host Dana Loesch "sad" and adding, "I´m very surprised by The View booking Dana Loesch. There is no compromise with her, no solution other than more guns." In a tweet back, Goldberg replied, "yeah.. Me too, but it´s sweeps apparently.. & they are going for ratings I´m sure."

(Video) Vice President Biden credited labor unions for building the middle class and “keeping the barbarians at the gates” in an impassioned speech on Wednesday to the United Auto Workers. Biden criticized conservative groups for attacking collected bargaining rights, and said the declining influence of unions was hurting the middle class. “The truth of the matter is, you built the middle class,” Biden said. “Labor built the middle class. And there´s a reason why the middle class is shrinking.” He called collective bargaining a “bedrock of our economy” and criticized billionaire Home Depot founder Ken Langone for suggesting

The IRS’ proposed changes to requirements for tax-exempt “social welfare” organizations, which would put new limits on their political activity, are the latest attempt by the federal agency to target conservative groups, Republican lawmakers said Tuesday. The regulations, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., said in a hearing, were “drafted in a manner, in my view, to shut down tea party groups.” (Snip) Rep. Charles Boustany, R-La., chairman of the Ways and Means’ oversight subpanel, similarly said that the new rules would “essentially codify the continued targeting of these very same groups” that were previously targeted.

Elitist lipstick on the CBO pig

Yesterday´s Congressional Budget Office report on Obamacare´s jobs impact is, in the words of liberal Dana Milbank of The Washington Post, "a game-changer." The congressional number-crunchers, perhaps the capital´s closest thing to a neutral referee, came out with a new report Tuesday, and it wasn´t pretty for Obamacare. The CBO predicted the law would have a "substantially larger" impact on the labor market than it had previously expected: The law would reduce the workforce in 2021 by the equivalent of 2.3 million full-time workers, well more than the 800,000 originally anticipated. This will inevitably be a drag on economic growth,

The New York Observer has made a huge splash with an investigative story by editor Ken Kurson on internal tensions at the New York Times. According to Kurson´s story, the Times´ reporters have growing contempt for the "tyranny and lethargy" of the paper´s editorial page, which is not only badly run but rarely read under Andrew Rosenthal. The Internet has lit up with debate about the story--and no small degree of delight. The controversy has everything that the new media universe loves: gossip, rivalry, and a shot at "the man"--or the Grey Lady, in this instance. Yet is the story, beneath

President Barack Obama said that he is “in a lot of ways” less liberal than former Republican President Richard Nixon and said Fox News Channel´s Bill O’Reilly has been “absolutely” unfair to him throughout his presidency in an interview that aired Monday night. “In a lot of ways Richard Nixon was more liberal than I was,” Obama said. “He started the EPA, started a whole lot of the regulatory state that has helped keep our air and water clean.” Obama´s comments came in response to O´Reilly asking him if he was “the most liberal president of all time.” Obama also listed Franklin

The Congressional Budget Office estimated on Tuesday that the Affordable Care Act will reduce the number of full-time workers by 2.5 million over the next decade. That is mostly a good thing, a liberating result of the law. Of course, Republicans immediately tried to brand the findings as “devastating” and stark evidence of President Obama’s health care reform as a failure and a job killer. It is no such thing. (SNIP) The new law will free people, young and old, to pursue careers or retirement without having to worry about health coverage.

Just days away from the administration’s deadline to extend the nation’s borrowing authority, Speaker John A. Boehner told House Republicans he sees no reason to pick a fight they cannot win on the issue. “There’s no sense picking a fight we can’t win,” the Ohio Republican told members in a private conference meeting, according to sources in the room. Leadership has been looking for a plan that could draw Republican support for a debt limit increase, and Boehner urged his members to coalesce around a plan. If they do not, he warned, the Senate could move first and tack a provision to

There are few medical procedures feared more than a colonoscopy. But what if there was another way to screen patients for colon cancer that´s much less intrusive? Now there is: The PillCam, an ingestible camera that takes high-speed photographs as it works its way through the digestive system and helps doctors spot polyps and other early signs of colon cancer was just cleared by the Food and Drug Administration. The device is designed for patients who have had trouble with the cringe-inducing colonoscopy procedure, which involves probing the large intestine with a tiny camera embedded in a four-foot long, flexible

The Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, became law almost four years ago. It became operational last Oct. 1. Yesterday, Feb. 4, 2014, the ACA may well have been dealt its death blow. The Congressional Budget Office released a major study of the government’s budget and its effect on the overall economy over the next 10 years. In dull bureaucratic language, it delivers a devastating analysis of the inefficiencies, ineffectualities and problematic social costs of ObamaCare. The one-two punch: Virtually as many Americans will lack health coverage in 10 years as before the law was passed — but 2 million fewer

President Obama, outlining his push Tuesday to bring high-speed Internet access to more U.S. schools, said Americans should demand the same level of technology in learning facilities as they do in coffee shops. “In a country where we expect free Wi-Fi with our coffee, we should definitely demand it in our schools,” Obama said in Adelphi, Md., highlighting $750 million in new commitments from private companies to put digital learning labs in schools. Under his plan, the Federal Communications Commission will also spend $2 billion to connect 20 million students to wireless technologies.

Seven seconds of total silence. The nation´s top intelligence officials have answered the question countless times over the past year and a half, but they seemed stumped during a House hearing Tuesday when a Florida congressman asked them one more time: "Can anybody at the table tell us when somebody will be held responsible for the murders in Benghazi?" For seven seconds, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA director John Brennan, Defense Intelligence Agency director Michael Flynn, National Counterterrorism Center director Matt Olsen and FBI director James Comey sat quietly – each one seemingly waiting for one of the others to

I don´t believe Woody Allen is a child molester. But when I read Dylan Farrow´s letter in The New York Times accusing her adoptive father of sexual abuse, I didn´t think she was making it up. I believe it´s a scenario she´s come to believe after it was implanted in her impressionistic head as a kid. On March 18, 1993, after a Connecticut prosecutor declined to charge Allen after a three-month investigation of the same allegations, I interviewed him at his Fifth Ave. apartment. Soon Yi Previn, then his girlfriend and now his wife and mother of their two adopted children, answered the

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said the Congressional Budget Office report that shows Obamacare will make the labor force lose 2.3 million full-time workers by 2021 is positive because it lets Americans be “free agents.” “We have the CBO report, which rightfully says, that people shouldn’t have job lock. If they — we live in a country where there should be free agency. People can do what they want,” Reid told reporters outside of a close policy luncheon. “And what they’re saying here is — and the fact checkers have already done this — the Republicans talk about losing
