U.S. DEBT REACHES 18 TRILLION -- "For all practical purposes, it means an endless fiscal crisis lurks in the nation's future."
HERE ARE THE TOP TEN LIES FROM OBAMA'S AMNESTY SPEECH -- "Lie #10: Scripture tells us, we shall not oppress a stranger."
Twitter Feed from SD48 GOP
DONNA AZARIAN: "Taxpayers don't have endless funds."
THE PARTY OF "NO" -- Once again, Democrats vote down common sense Keystone Pipeline.
CHICAGO TRIBUNE: ARROGANCE PLUS DECEPTION EQUALS OBAMACARE, ASK GRUBER -- "Even in Gruber's come-cleanery, there's one more lie. The people who deceived you about Obamacare didn't do so because you're stupid. They did so because they thought voters are smart, and would reject them and their schemes if they didn't spin their many deceptions."
THE ELECTION IS OVER . . . SO IT'S OKAY TO REPORT THIS -- NY Times: "Cost of coverage under affordable care act to increase in 2015." All the news that's fit to hide. And just days after the midterm elections because ... stupid Americans.
THREE THINGS THE WHITE HOUSE DOESN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT OBAMACARE . . . and three things coming in 2015 that you won't like.
GO AHEAD LIBERALS, RAISE THE MINIMUM WAGE . . . and you'll get a whole lot more of this: "Service Robots Will Now Assist Customers at Lowe's Store".
GALLUP: VOTER OPPOSITION TO OBAMA AT A 16-YEAR HIGH -- “Angry and frustrated voters are planning to use the midterm elections in one month to tell President Obama they oppose his agenda, the highest "no vote" percentage in the last 16 years measured by Gallup.
AN ANTI-LANDRIEU AD FROM ELBERT GUILLORY -- "You are not Mary's cause ... you are just a vote ... you are a means to an end." This is a great ad, a great message.
