Capitalize on Respect:  Despite all the obstacles to success that the Obama administration is trying to impose, small business owners and their employees have cause to be optimistic.  The American public simply does not believe the current socialist rhetoric demonizing Capitalism.

Voters Want Green... In Their Wallets:  As the fallout continues to settle from the 2009 elections, among the more overlooked results was a ballot issue in Boulder County, Colorado that would have extended an existing sales tax to fund the acquisition of additional "open space."

Insurance Industry Stung by Health Care Deal

by Gregory Conko

With much of the health care reform debate still focused on the wisdom of including a government-run, “public” health insurance “option,” too many opponents are neglecting a far more insidious feature of the Democratic proposals:  the mandatory purchase requirement.  Under each of the bills moving through Congress, every person living in the United States would be required by law to have health insurance.

Unemployment Skyrockets: "U.S. Now Beating European Unemployment Rates"

by Hans Bader

Unemployment is now higher in the U.S. than in Europe,  reports the Washington Post.  “The official U.S. unemployment rate, reported last Friday, now stands at 10.2 percent,” compared to “9.7 percent” in Europe.   This is the highest rate in more than 26 years, and marks a huge change from the recent past, in which unemployment was double the American rate in much of Europe, such as in France. Unemployment is at 10 percent in France, which refused to adopt a U.S.-style stimulus package, and only 7.6 percent in Germany, which adopted a stimulus package that was smaller relative to its economy than ours was.

by Marc Scribner

Yesterday, Pfizer announced it was closing its research and development facility in New London, Connecticut. This is the same complex that was at the center of the redevelopment plan at issue in Kelo v. New London. This turn of events underscores the argument, often employed by eminent domain opponents, that government-sponsored development corporations lack the economic foresight to efficiently make long-term development investment decisions.

CHQ - Pelosi Uses Chicago Politics to Pass "Obamacare"

Pelosi Uses Chicago-Style Politics to Pass House Version of Obamacare
ConservativeHQ.com - It didn't matter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that Democrat Bill Owens was not certified by the State of New York when she swore him into office right before the House voted on its version of Obamacare.  Chicago-style politics, and all of its corruption, has made its way into the United States Congress, where Democrats will do whatever it takes to ensure their Far Left agenda is passed.  [Read the Blog Here]
