The short answer as with many large policy issues is “Absolutely and to the core of their policy direction.”
I am not talking about GOP arguments against Obamacare, their promises to repeal it or any new plans. I am talking about passed (past) legislation that can be reviewed in practice. I am talking about [...]
I wanted to give a few anecdotes from our days in DC. Not a review (you can find that here) of the rally but rather a set of events that give the weekend a greater context and flavor. I hope you find them educational, if not entertaining.

“Thousands gather as Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin lead controversial Washington rally” and “Sharpten Rally fills football field” that is how CNN was covering it by the time I reached the airport. Since the reflecting pool is about 2000 feet long (5.5 football fields). We could estimate the Restoring honor crowd at about [...]
When it gets too hard to dig through all of the spin on both sides, I tend to take a step back, read the actual bill and act on common sense.
This alone proved to me that the Democrats and the President were not being truthful. They continue to try and shoot down the [...]
I was listening to Atlas Shrugged (audio book) yesterday when I had an unexpected and profound response.

Like many I am impressed at the delivery of the speech, the words and inflection delivered with precision. Also like most, I am waiting for action. Actions speech louder then words.

But there was an [...]

An odd combination but they have something remarkable in common… The American People.
Both have served to show, that when it comes down to it; Democrats, Republicans and Independents, there is a lot we share as Americans. The media, in pursuit of the every important rating point (dollars but the Liberals don’t like to admit [...]
Much has been made about Harry Reid’s attempt to link opposition to heath care to opposition to slavery, woman’s rights and civil rights.
“You think you’ve heard these same excuses before, you’re right. When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said, slow down, it’s [...]
