Steve Peters Commentary - Health Care Law - 62% Favor Repeal - Rasmussen Reports - Support for repeal of the national health care law has reached its highest level since May of last year. The number of voters who believe the plan will increase the cost of care has tied its highest level since the law’s passage last March. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that 62% favor repeal of the health care law, including 51% who Strongly Favor it. Only 33% of voters oppose repeal, with 24% who are Strongly Opposed. (To see survey question wording, click here.)  Read more........  
SP: Yogi Berra said,"it's like deja vu all over again." It happened in 2010 and a political tsunami is going to wash over the Democrats again in the next couple of election cycles. Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and their liberal legislation(including ObamaCare) have done more to reduce the number of Federal and State democratic politicians holding office, than anything Republicans(the stupid party) could have done on their own. How ObamaCare was passed and the Democrat's consistent message of, 'if voters were just smart enough to understand it, they would love it', has created a toxic political brew for them. The voter's anger has been amplified against Democrats, because ObamaCare was passed using legislative procedural gimmicks, without ONE Republican vote. They own it, and it has become an anchor around their necks. In a Republic, one cannot consistently misrepresent the facts to the public and ignore what a majority of the voters want, without getting routed in the election booth. Just this morning, Kathleen Sebelious(Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services) said," everyone prospers under health law....American people are enjoying...greater freedoms and lower costs."
Tim Kaine Might Not Be the Perfect Answer - Stuart Rothenberg - Roll Call - For many, Tim Kaine has remained Plans B, C and D ever since Webb announced his plans. They think that the former Virginia governor is the only Democrat with the statewide name identification, fundraising ability and stature to hold the open seat next year........They may be correct about Kaine’s potential given the Commonwealth’s thin Democratic bench, but it’s far from clear that the former governor is still the political powerhouse that he once was, or that some apparently assume he still is.  Kaine’s initial indecision about jumping into the race isn’t exactly reason for optimism for Democrats, even with the news Monday that he is increasingly likely to enter the 2012 contest. Reluctance isn’t one of the qualities most campaign strategists look for in a candidate.  Read more........
A President on Strike Against Energy - John Ransom - Townhall Finance - On energy, Obama’s got a case of the “blue-flu.”In revolt against the most productive sectors of our energy industry- oil, natural gas and coal- Obama wants instead to create make work programs for “alternative,” and “green” energy schemes, which amount to a sit-down strike against the energy security of the country. Congressman Jeff Landry (R-LA) blasted President Obama’s lack of an energy policy as “reckless” yesterday, in light of the disasters involving nuclear power in Japan that have developed this week and strategic concerns about supply in the Middle East.  On Sunday Landry also appeared on Fox News, challenging Obama to stop shying away from fears and start solving America’s energy problems.  Read more........


Rep. Hensarling: 'Spendaholic' Obama 'Hides' from Red Ink He Spews - Newsmax - Rep. Jeb Hensarling, the fourth-highest-ranking Republican in Congress, tells Newsmax that President Barack Obama continues to “run and hide” from the deficit problems facing America.  He also asserts that the federal government’s entitlement programs are becoming a “cruel Ponzi scheme” for future generations, and declares that the stimulus program has been an “abject failure” in dealing with the unemployment problem.  The Texas legislator, who was elected in 2002, is chairman of the House Republican Conference and vice chairman of the House Financial Services Committee.  In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV, Hensarling discussed efforts to reduce federal spending and stimulate job growth.  Read more........
