US Fiscal Debate Could Learn From Norway

Hurtigruten-in-Raftsundet-Norway-740

Written by Mark Provost Guest Author If Washington sincerely wants to reduce the budget deficit and national debt while protecting the broader economy, it should learn from other nations which have succeeded. One country stands out: Norway. Norway has the largest budget surpluses in the developed world, no net national debt, citizens enjoy a robust safety net, and unemployment is below 3%. (1) (2) What is Norway’s secret, other than refusing to join the European Union? Before the discovery of off-shore oil in the late 60s, Norway’s lackluster economy earned the nickname ‘Europe’s ugly duckling’. But Norway’s subsequent success has…

Myth: “Obamacare Forces Me to Pay for Other People’s Health Care”

SOURCE: AP/Charles Dharapak

Long before the Affordable Care Act was signed into law, you were paying for other people’s healthcare in many different ways. When you pay insurance premiums, that money doesn’t only go towards your healthcare, it helps pay medical costs for every person insured by that company. Likewise, when someone without health insurance received care in an emergency room, and they couldn’t pay their bills, the hospital didn’t just write off those costs. They passed that expense on to you and every other patient in the form of higher medical costs, higher insurance premiums, and higher deductibles. However, the Affordable Health…

Harry Reid: NRA’s Greatest Ally?

Yesterday, This Week With George Stephanopoulos aired an eye-opening interview (conducted just this past Friday) with Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid (D-NV). I urge every Democrat, across the spectrum – whether you identity as moderate, center-left, liberal or progressive – to watch this interview. Even if you forward through to the discussion on gun proposals. What you will see is an evasive, whip-smart, sly and soft-speaking man (Elaine Benes would have called him a “low talker”) who does not stake out positions on much of anything. A man who single-handedly controls the public debate in this country. A man who…

Karl Rove Returns: The Quest For Party Unity

Karl Rove at press Conference

Karl Rove launches new American Crossroads Project – Conservatives and Republicans Cringe There is increasing talk regarding the “true conservative” as an endangered species. Now on the left, the talk is more centered on the Republican Party, as to many liberals and progressives, the GOP serves as the big tent under which the right wing gathers. However if that is the case, it would seem some groups are threatening to pull up the stakes and go home. Enter; The Conservative Victory Project. Ex Bush era Rasputin impersonator, Karl Rove has returned, again, and much like any bad b-movie horror franchise,…

Outgoing Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis Deserves Praise for Reforming Department of Labor

solis

Written By: Ryan Heron Guest Author Earlier this month word came down that Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis would be stepping down as head of the Federal Department of Labor. Solis leaves behind a record of reshaping and reforming the department to once again serve the interests of the working people of America, as it was intended. Solis will be a sorely missed voice of the working people in an administration that, much to the chagrin of many liberals, has been overly influenced by Wall Street and other members of the American plutocracy class. During her term as Secretary of…
