SO IN OTHER WORDS ... our semi-retired President is going to propose paying for "free" community college for everyone ... by taxing people's savings to put their own kids through college?
CREEPY AND AWKWARD -- John Kerry to the people of France: You've got a friend???
Twitter Feed from SD48 GOP
OF COURSE HE DOES! -- Obama backs government-run internet.
COUGH IT UP, KIDS -- Dems change tune after mocking GOP for 'drill, baby, drill.'
THE RELIGION OF ENVIRONMENTALISM -- George Will: "The Keystone catechism". "Obama revealed his economic sophistication years ago when he said that ATMs and airport ticket kiosks cost jobs. He does not understand that, outside of government, which is all that he knows or respects, all jobs are "temporary." By a 2-1 margin, Americans want the Keystone pipeline constructed. Are we going to get 42,000 "temporary" jobs or will Tom Steyer's money carry the day?
WELL, THEY PROMISED CHANGE -- It's not just the national debt burying future generations. PJ Media: "Why the Coming Pension Bomb Will Destroy Your City and State - Screwing future generations to take care of non-workers today." Don't worry: you'll almost certainly get 75% of your promised Social Security benefits. Maybe.
WHY OBAMA WASN'T IN PARIS -- The largest protest in French history conspicuously lacked one person
LIARS REMORSE-- Democrats have second thoughts about Obamacare
IRONY -- Harvard professors discover that Obamacare is not such a good deal. Lesson: Government programs are popular ... until people have to pay for them.
HOW A TOP OBAMA CRONY MOVED FROM IDAHO TO A $2 MILLION WASHINGTON ESTATE -- Life can be very good for the aiders and abetters of Big Government.
BLASPHEMY FOR ME, BUT NOT FOR THEE -- Matthew Continetti: "Do liberals actually believe in the right to offend?"

THE DEMOCRAT FORMULA FOR KILLING JOBS

• Health insurance costs rising? Check.

• Higher personnel costs? Check.

• Higher business taxes? Check.

• Higher utilities costs? Check.

U.S. DEBT REACHES 18 TRILLION -- "For all practical purposes, it means an endless fiscal crisis lurks in the nation's future."
