“It’s all about maintaining his numbers now, not about the best policies for the state,’’ said a source who knows Cuomo well.  Wow!   This is from an eye-opening column by Fred Dicker in today's NY Post, I say eye-opening because Mr. Dicker has been one of the Governor's staunchest supporters.  (Of course, that was before the Governor's State of the State and his assault on the 2nd Amendment.)  While the remarks are not Mr. Dicker's, the fact that they have made it into the press is significant. After this column, I can't help but wonder how often Governor Cuomo will be on Mr. Dicker's radio show, where he has been a frequent guest.

NY's Les Miserables, but don't worry, the Governor passed the NY SAFE Act so at least the unstable put back into New York's streets won't have guns.

Governor Cuomo is also expanding Medicaid coverage (remember he doesn't what to upset his base) from approximately $54 billion to $57.6 billion per year! 

Andrea Peyser begins her column with "They've gone too far" and we couldn't agree more.  Parents get involved!!  Know what is being taught and what they are distributing to your children.

Anyone who has ever put a claim into their insurance company knows that they will have an increase in their premiums, this is normal business practice.  So the news that those who have been devastated by Sandy have to pay more in city taxes should not come as a total surprise, however, the people who have suffered so much are not even back on their feet.  Talk about bad timing, couldn't the City wait until residents have returned to normalcy?

The Left is besides themselves while the right is hailing Dr. Ben Carson for his common-sense address at the National Prayer Breakfast.  If at all possible, set aside about a half hour to watch the video (link above) and you will understand why the WSJ has an Op-Ed "Ben Carson for President."  His speech has surged him to national prominence, his journey to this stage of his life is the American Dream.  Al Sharpton, we can only hope that the press comes to its senses and realizes your time in the limelight is over and Dr. Ben Carson's is just beginning. 

Obamacare already forcing doctors to close practices.   Betsy McCaughey has an excellent article in today's NY Post on Obamacare which says in part "The latest news from four federal agencies is that 1) insurance will be a lot less affordable than Americans were led to expect, 2) fewer people than promised will get insurance and 3) millions of people who have coverage through a job now will lose it, thanks to the president’s “reforms.” Oh, and children are the biggest victims."  Guess they should have read it BEFORE they passed it...

The Heritage Foundation says get the government out of the natural gas business, we say, why stop there.

Senator Lisa Murkowski from the state of Alaska, discusses the future of energy.
