The Texas Two-Step on Taxes

Sometimes the right decision is the one that is least wrong. Texas is looking at uncertain tax revenues from the oil patch and a growing stack of unpaid bills for the basic blocking and tackling functions of government, but what do the politicians do? Argue about which tax to cut, of course.

Jeb is Wrong on Common Core

Jeb Bush has a new immature insult for parents, university professors and teachers who recognize Common Core standards are a hindrance to your children's education: "You believe in unicorns."

Congress's Bipartisan Obamacare Fraud

One of the most outrageous but least reported ongoing scandals in Washington is that the House and Senate have both falsely certified themselves as small businesses in order to fund health insurance for themselves and their staff with taxpayer dollars, sidestepping provisions of Obamacare.
