One of the must-pass pieces of legislation that will be addressed by Congress during the coming Lame Duck session is called the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA). The bill is, in the words of the House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), "the only way to protect taxpayers, promote stable markets and enhance economic certainty." Mr. Hensarling could not be more correct.
Originally enacted after the horrific attacks on 9-11, the legislation created…Continue
Okay, that was my generation: cowboys, Indians and cattle drives out in the ‘Ol West. For you younger readers, not sure how the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would handle things, much less He-Man and his incredible band as they fought Skeletor and his forces of evil. However, it would seem that that’s how Fox News and a…Continue
53,000 Tea Party Nation members could change America!
If we could unite, rally around a few issues, that all Americans agree on, we will lead America back to greatness.
So I challenge the Great Patriots and Great Minds of the TEA PARTY NATION to come up with just three issues all Americans can agree on...
Here are the issues I know most Americans would agree on:
1. What the TEA PARTY stands for, Real Tax Reform for Real Economic Recovery

Food prices are up 48%. Energy’s up 23%. Wheat’s up 74%. Gas is up 68%. What’s next? Is there an end in sight?
For Social Security recipients, it may be coming very soon as conservatives in Congress demand an “adjustment” in the Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) that was meant to help them cope with inflation. For endangered Middle Class Americans it may come in 2013 as this adjustment pushes more…Continue
From the Office of Congressman Steve King
As you know from the enclosed letter, a U.S./Mexico Social Security Treaty will place a massive and unnecessary burden on our already troubled Social Security system. And you have probably read how passage of the Treaty takes place automatically UNLESS Congress acts to stop it.
There are other reasons why EVERY taxpayer, Social Security recipient and concerned…Continue

A Chinese auto company having just won the auction for bankrupt A123 Systems, one of Barack Obama’s car battery darlings that received a $249 million grant from the Obama government further illustrates why the White House playing capital investor with taxpayer funds investor is a very bad idea.
When Obama took office in January 2009, five million “green” jobs were promised, yet nowhere near that number have been created. The companies Obama invests in keep failing because Americans do…Continue

If there was no other reason to defeat President Obama in November, it would be the planned destruction of what is left of the U.S. economy by the Environmental Protection Agency.
In “A Look Ahead to EPA Regulations for 2012” the minority staff (Republican) of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works has issued a chilling review of a massive rise in the costs of living for all Americans, massive layoffs in all sectors of the economy, and the…Continue

Prosperity, Wealth, and Redistribution
When political leaders (or candidates) talk about “prosperity,” there are at least two divergent meanings to their words. On the one hand, prosperity is described as the result of hard work and determination. On the other hand, it is the some combination of luck, greed, plus government intervention and assistance. Very few people would deny they want to prosper. It’s a good word. It means “to make happy or successful.” Most of us understand that.…

When was the last time you had your hair cut? Chances are it has been longer for you than it has for Obama. German Public Radio reported on Wednesday that the American taxpayers pay for President Obama to have his hair cut every 10 - 14 days.

It is not just the number of people working that effects the economy, it is the type of job, and the job's salary and benefits. All are in decline for the majority of the workforce.
