Weekly Wrap-Up

“Sequester” is what everybody’s talking about this week, and today The Heritage Foundation offers perhaps the most humorous take on the matter.

Sequestration isn’t perfect, as National Review points out, but it can be made to work. 

Rich Lowry and Jonah Goldberg both point out that “sequester” is NOT a synonym for “doomsday.”

But doomsday is exactly what the Democrats want as they are “desperateto up the pain the sequester cuts will inflict on the American people.”

Government by Freakout,” as Peggy Noonan calls it.

The sequester in perspective.

What’s your take on the sequester question? Should the government be forced to cut spending – or will a leaner government cause too much destruction?  Vote today in our new Weekly Poll.

New York liberals want to “sequester” your money and cut your budget with new taxes.  The latest: A new tax on tickets to sporting events.  The New York Post has my take on this new money-grab.

There’s plenty to worry about in Andrew Cuomo’s radical abortion agenda.  This is a great analysis, and the following paragraph stood out most to me:

The abortion party does not brook resistance, and it steadfastly seeks to ensure that everybody has a hand in its grisly business: taxpayers, employers, priests. All must be implicated. If a religious hospital declines to provide abortions, then it must be forced to do so. If a counseling center treats adoption as preferable to abortion, it will either change its mind or have its mind changed for it by the gentle persuasion of the State of New York.

The Conservative Party will be standing up for the unborn and against this abortion extremism – and we’ll be taking on the spending extremism that sees minor budget cuts as the end of the world.  Thanks for your support for our work, and have a great weekend!
