$822,000 Worker Shows California Leads U.S. Pay Giveaway - Bloomberg

$822,000 Worker Shows California Leads U.S. Pay Giveaway - Bloomberg: Payroll data compiled by Bloomberg on 1.4 million public employees in the 12 most populous states show that California has set a pattern of lax management, inefficient operations and out-of-control costs. From coast to coast, states are cutting funding for schools, public safety and the poor as they struggle with fallout left by politicians who made pay-and-pension promises that taxpayers couldn’t afford.

The Democrats’ GM Fiction - The Editors - National Review Online

The Democrats’ GM Fiction - The Editors - National Review Online: The GM bailout was always an odd duck: The Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) was created in order to preserve liquidity in the financial markets by heading off the collapse of key financial institutions that had made catastrophically bad bets on real-estate securities — nothing at all to do with cars, really. GM’s financial arm, today known as Ally Financial, was in trouble, but GM’s fundamental problem was that its products were not profitable enough to support its work-force expenses. A single dominant factor — the United Auto Workers union’s extortionate contracts with GM — prevented the carmaker from either reducing its work-force costs or making its products more efficiently. And its hidebound management didn’t help.

Insurance News - Calif. Considers A Tax-Payer Funded Life Insurance Policy Bill

Insurance News - Calif. Considers A Tax-Payer Funded Life Insurance Policy Bill: Aug. 08--Do legislators read or understand the impact of the bills they vote on? Do they care about the fiscal health of the communities they represent? If they do, how can they overwhelmingly approve a bill that would impose huge costs on both the state and struggling local governments? That's what Assembly Bill 2451 would do.

Lautenberg: Boycott My Constituents!

Lautenberg: Boycott My Constituents! | Power Line: On the floor of the Senate yesterday, Frank Lautenberg did something that to our knowledge is unprecedented: he called publicly for a boycott of his own constituents. The context was the “DISCLOSE Act,” which would require 501(c)(4) entities to disclose the identities of their donors. The bill is opposed by a coalition that includes the ACLU and the NRA, and likely is unconstitutional, but the Democrats think it is good politics, so they wanted to see it voted down again yesterday. Which it was.

Zombie The Ultimate Takedown of Obama’s ‘You Didn’t Build That’ Speech

The Ultimate Takedown of Obama’s ‘You Didn’t Build That’ Speech: President Obama’s instantly infamous “You didn’t build that” speech is a major turning point of the 2012 election not because it was a gaffe but because it was an accurate and concise summary of core progressive fiscal dogma. It was also a political blunder of epic proportions because in his speech Obama unintentionally proved the conservatives’ case for limited government.

Doug Ross @ Journal: Don't fear the fiscal cliff -- fear the welfare cliff


Doug Ross @ Journal: Don't fear the fiscal cliff -- fear the welfare cliff: ...Needless to say, there’s not much reason to earn more income when living standards don’t improve. May as well stay home and goof off rather than work hard and produce... This is why income redistribution is so destructive, not just to taxpayers, but also to the people who get trapped into dependency.

California Air Resources Board cap and trade program circumvents state open meeting laws with a Moonbeam assist | Watts Up With That?: So, it was with shock and surprise that I learned today that the California Air Resources Board declared the method by which they could circumvent the public meeting laws. Even more shocking they put it in writing and, got the California State legislature to pass it as a law as a rider on a totally unrelated bill of legislation, and Governor Brown signed it into law on June 27th, 2012.

The Modern Survivalist |

The Modern Survivalist |: They stole our savings. They stole our retirement funds. They taxed the life out of us. They investigated your finances if you bought a big screen TV for the world cup or send your kids to a private school. In a way they “nationalized” and ruined private health care by including every crappy social medical plan into private health care services that used to be of acceptable quality. They banned the purchase of foreign currency, pretty much froze importations even taking a Fahrenheit 451 twist when they banned the importation of books, like a poor taste Bradburian joke.

Amazing stories of Obamacare | Power Line

Amazing stories of Obamacare | Power Line: The New York Post’s Benjamin Sasse and Charlie Hurt explained the awkward details of timing: “Open enrollment [for 2013 Medicare Advantage] begins Oct. 15, less than three weeks before voters go to the polls.” So Obamacare would kick seniors out of their Medicare program three weeks before Obama’s re-election.

That, of course, would be politically damaging. So Obama simply took $8.35 billion from a Obamacare fund for “demonstration projects” and used it to delay the brunt of the Medicare Advantage cuts until after the election.

The Washington Post Company raked in $573,217 in taxpayer subsidies and CBS Corporation secured $722,388 worth of Americans’ money.

Senators Call Obama On His Energy Lies | Power Line

Senators Call Obama On His Energy Lies | Power Line

The Obama administration’s energy policies have been a disaster for America. Obama appointed a Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu, who shared Obama’s desire that fossil fuel prices increase, so that it would be more expensive for you to drive your car, heat your home, buy groceries, power your laptop, and so on. Obama wanted higher prices in order to reduce carbon emissions and to enrich the Democratic Party fat cats who dominate the “green” energy industry.
