After Hobby Lobby, What Next?

If you believe the liberal media, the Supreme Court decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. is the most sweeping and revolutionary case since Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. Of course they’re right, but not for the reasons they suppose. Nothing has changed, but then everything has changed. In the particulars, this was a very narrow ruling, but the legal landscape has been transfo... More

President Ecclesiastes?

Buried amidst the wall-to-wall coverage of pressing national issues like Michael Sam’s coming out party and Chris Christie’s traffic jam, the Obama Administration has announced that it will be delaying and weakening the employer mandate once again. Politico notes that this will be a boon to unscrupulous small business owners who now have more time to scale back their workers’ hours without ... More

The Affordable Care Act we can’t afford

Many Catholics support “universal health care,” presumably wishing that no one be denied lifesaving (or more routine?) treatment because of a lack of money. The centuries-long history of Catholic hospitals is evidence of the Church heeding Christ’s call to care for the sick. When I read about the Good Samaritan picking up an assault victim and treating his wounds, though, I don&#... More

Everyone’s Three Favorite Things: ObamaCare, Taxes, and Abortion

Next week is the March for Life which is especially meaningful this year, as there are several cases before the Supreme Court during this session that touch on essential questions about the sanctity of life and the relationship of citizens towards our government.

Lies, Libertarians, and the Future: The Virginia Election is a Bellwether for the Nation

It’s Election Day in Virginia. With polls putting the unlikable Terry McAuliffe ahead by six points at the eleventh hour, it’s anyone’s guess how this is going to turn out, but it’s not looking good for lovers of life and liberty. In the mix is no small amount of misinformation. My 16-year-old daughter was assigned a research project for her American Government class, in ... More

What if Costco Ran Healthcare?

As people have finally managed to penetrate the riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma that is the federal health insurance exchange login screen, they are discovering the truth behind the absurd promises that ObamaCare would slow the rise of the oceans and lead to world peace. In fact, instead of making healthcare affordable for hard-working Americans, premiums, deductibles, copays, and f... More

Think the HHS Mandate Won’t Hurt Non-Catholics? Think Again.

The Little Sisters of the Poor, first recognized as a Pontifical Institute by Pope Pius XI on July 9, 1854, is a religious congregation dedicated to the care of the elderly poor. According to their website, this mission means that the sisters “welcome them into our homes, form one family with them, accompany them from day to day and care for them with love and respect until God calls them h...

Michigan Republicans pass pro-life, right-to-work legislation amid violent protests

When Congressional Democrats rammed through a healthcare bill that will likely bankrupt the country, those who rallied in opposition were labeled bigoted, racist and un-patriotic. When Republican legislators voted to make Michigan the 24th right-to-work state in the nation, they were accused of being enemies of democracy. Coincidence? Hardly. It’s all part of a plan to paint proponents of limite... More

The Resistance To ObamaCare Keeps Going

In the lead-up to the presidential election, the opponents of ObamaCare warned that the November 6 vote was America’s last chance to end the health care law that was passed in early 2010. While the election was certainly an ideal chance—and a missed one—there’s no such thing as a last chance, unless the opposition decides to give up. And the early returns suggest that opponents of the new ... More
