Weekly Wrap-Up

There's been plenty of discussion over the past several days about the terrible Tucson massacre, and the Left's shameless exploitation of that tragedy in their desperate bid to score political points against conservatives. I want to end the week by focusing on the issues.

Obamacare, which is at the top of the agenda in Congress.

We hear a lot of talk about "repeal and replace" - but what is the replacement? Congressman (and Doctor) Phil Roe has some
sensible ideas...

This issue will be at the center of the 2012 presidential campaign – and via Drudge Report, we learn that President Obama is already
building up his war chest...

What’s that sound we hear?
“The Cry of the Cowardly Pol,” reports The New York Post.

Thanks to
Illinois, the liberals in Albany and New York City have competition in the "race to the bottom" toward the highest taxes and the least-friendly business environment...

... while states like
Wisconsin – remembering the old saw that “All politics is local” – are trying to capitalize on frustrations with tax-and-spend liberalism...

... and Chris Christie is working hard to rescue
New Jersey from the bottom by implementing much-needed pension reforms for government employees.

According to
this report, Gov. Cuomo “wants to move forward with a plan to collect taxes from the sale of cigarettes on Indian reservations.”

This has been tried before to no avail, and there’s no guarantee Cuomo will be successful. But given that tax-free cigarettes on Indian reservations hurt merchants across the state and contribute to the rampant bootlegging that has been shown to benefit terrorist groups, do you believe Gov. Cuomo’s plan is a step in the right direction? Give your views in our Weekly Poll.

And have a great weekend!
