CEI Today: Jonathan Gruber, the Dodd-Frank nightmare, our fuelish ways, and more

OBAMACARE & JONATHAN GRUBER - SAM KAZMAN

Obamacare: Cert Granted on Friday, and Gruber II on Saturday
 
Shortly after noon last Friday, the Supreme Court announced that it would review our Fourth Circuit Obamacare challenge, King v. Burwell. Saturday brought another surprise—yet another rediscovered Jonathan Gruber video:

And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get the thing to pass.” So, the only way to get it to pass was to not call it what it was and to not let the American people know what it really was.

DODD-FRANK


The Long National Nightmare of Dodd-Frank Is Almost Over

On November 19, however, a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit will hear arguments in a case brought by CEI and others challenging the constitutionality of this new bureaucracy created by the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010. If the judges rule in our favor, Main Street and Wall Street should both breathe a sigh of relief. > Read more

GLOBAL WARMING REPORT - MARLO LEWIS
 

CNSNews: IPCC’s Latest Report: The End Is Nigh Unless Mankind Repents of Its Fuelish Ways


Last month, the “pause”—a period of no net warming in the bulk atmosphere—reached its 18th year. Roughly 36 percent of all fossil-fuel CO2 emissions since industrialization began occurred during that 18-year period. Yet, atmospheric warming was conspicuous by its absence. Now that is news!

IPCC-affiliated scientists did not forecast the pause, and still struggle to explain it. > Read more

& Part Two

Nov. 11, 2014

Happy Veterans Day!
On a day we honor our nation's veterans, the shocking reality of a failed Veteran's Administration health care system should spur unmitigated conviction to make sure each of those who served receive quality care at home.

CEI Today: Supreme Court to hear Obamacare challenge, Berlin Wall anniversary, and more 

Monday, Nov. 10, 2014
In the News Today

 

SUPREME COURT TO HEAR OBAMACARE CASE - SAM KAZMAN

Supreme Court will look at 'Obamacare' subsidies
 

On Friday, the Supreme Court announced it will review the Fourth Circuit’s ruling on the Obamacare insurance exchange subsidies case.


In King v. Burwell, the petitioners are challenging an IRS rule that provides subsidies to both state and federally-established exchanges. The petitioners argue the subsidies violate the law enacted by Congress, which gave states the choice to either set up such exchanges themselves or stay out of the program.


The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) is coordinating and funding both the King v. Burwell case and the D.C. Circuit Halbig v. Burwell case. > Read more

BERLIN WALL - FRED L. SMITH, JR.

The Fall of the Berlin Wall, 25 Years Later

 

November 9, 1989 was also the start of something better. It was a nation’s way of saying that it was ready to move on to better times. To a new world defined not by oppression, ideology, and servitude, but by freedom. Sweet, precious, fragile freedom. Seeing the footage on the news was like witnessing something being born. The hope and potential that surround every birth were glimmering in people’s eyes. It was beautiful.  > Read more

"When you get into certain areas like roads, it gets more difficult because you’re not necessarily talking about regulation so much; you’re talking about the fact that the government has a monopoly on the provision of these services.

When it comes to roads, we’re looking at how we can harness markets and get them involved in the provision of road transportation."

WIND ENERGY TAX CREDITS


The Hill: Groups press new GOP majority to reject wind tax credits
 

In a letter to Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Thursday, the 66 groups argue an attempt to revive the Production Tax Credit (PTC) during the lame-duck session should be “rejected.”

“The PTC is a key part of President Obama and Majority Leader Reid’s attack on affordable energy from natural gas, coal, and nuclear,” the letter signed by Heritage Action for America and the Competitive Enterprise Institute states.
