Democrats have coupled identity politics with a strong narrative to build a fashionable but unrepresentative coalition of ethnic minorities, the young and the economically disadvantaged. It’s no coincidence that these are the three most politically misled groups in America.
New York needs jobs. But New York has a Governor with neither the experience nor the will to do what’s necessary to create jobs.
You might not know it from listening to his sleek, Robert DeNiro-narrated ads, but New York is still the most taxed, most regulated, least economically free state in the Nation.
Sixty years ago, we had 45 seats in Congress. Today, we have 27, and our unemployment rate is nearly a full point above the national rate. Many upstate counties have unemployment rates of over 10%.
Reince Priebus gets it.
At the Republican National Committee conference in Los Angeles last week, the Chair of the Republican Party spoke about his vision for a future in which the old caricature of the “Grand Old Party” gives way to the new, more inclusive “Growth and Opportunity Party.”
Congress is on spring break through the end of the week, having balanced our budget, ended partisan bickering once and for all and forged compromise to solve all of our Nation’s problems.
Okay, only the part about “spring break” is true.
But with Congress out of the way and a quarter of 2013 already in the books, it’s a good time to take a look at the mood of our Nation. And with spring finally in the air, you might think that the national mood is ticking up. You’d be wrong.
Barack Obama is in Israel this week, doing his best to convince a skeptical public and a more skeptical government that he has their best interests in mind as he crafts America’s policy in the Middle East.
He’s got a lot of work to do. One recent Jerusalem Post/Smith Poll found that only 12% of Israelis consider Obama to be pro-Israel.
We’ve all acknowledged that we’re living in the era of the permanent campaign, but the general public is just catching onto the fact that, for Barack Obama, campaigning is the default setting.
Over the past several weeks, Obama has devoted his energy less to negotiating with House Republicans than to casting them as stubborn trolls bent on destroying the Nation via the sequester, a measure that Obama proposed in the first place.
During his State of the Union address, the President proposed raising the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $9.00 an hour.
Like so many of his economic proposals – stimulus spending, healthcare for all, tax the rich! – a minimum wage increase is great politics for Obama, but terrible policy for Americans.
It’s simple math: a higher minimum wage means a higher hiring cost for businesses, and a higher hiring cost means fewer jobs. The unintended consequence of employment reductions is very real, and felt most by those with the least amount of education and experience.
