  • One Thousand Days And Counting

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    This past week, President Obama delivered his annual State of the Union address on the same day that marked the 1000th day since the United States Senate has last passed a budget. I was hopeful that the President would put forth serious solutions to address the debt and jobs crisis that has come from years of reckless spending.

  • The state of our union

    Today, the American people are facing one of the most challenging times in our nation’s history.  They are struggling to make ends meet while our economy remains sluggish and unemployment remains high.

  • Government’s involvement in healthcare

    By Delegate Kathy Byron

        How much involvement should government have in healthcare?  That question has been extensively discussed at the national level over the last several years, as America begins to deal with the effects of the implementation of what we commonly call “ObamaCare.”  But, the debate over the extent of government involvement in healthcare decisions is not limited to any single federal government act.  Instead, it is a frequent topic of debate by government at the state and national level.

  • A first-rate SOTU address

    My president and yours, Barack Obama, last week rendered a very fine State of the Union address, one that the media noted “might be his last.”
        We’ll see about that…But the 44th President of the United States laid out the case for his common sense agenda of job growth, tax relief for the middle class, and increased taxes on the super rich.
