The week that was

A review of the week’s top stories.

“I love to go to Washington – if only to be near my money.”
– Bob Hope

The immigration crisis isn’t getting any better, and the thing to do when something isn’t improving is to give it another name. Obama is now claiming the hordes of unaccompanied minors pouring across are border illegally are “refugees.” Because feeding, clothing, and housing refugees is cheaper than feeding, clothing, and housing illegal immigrants.

Remember how good the IRS was at targeting and investigating conservative groups? They must have used up all their investigative juices because they claim to be unable to recover the hard drive that contains Lois Lerner’s emails. They’re either lying or incompetent. Both reasons to say ‘Sayonara!’

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled this week against Obamacare, saying in the Halbig v. Burwell case that: “people purchasing health insurance under the Affordable Care Act are only eligible for federal tax credits if they do so through an exchange established by a state.” It’s a blow to Obamacare’s proclamation of healthcare expansion, and a rare beacon of truth in a dark, dark world.

I went to the border on Monday to see what’s what. It was a good trip, which you can read about here. I did not see Rick Perry, though, so I’ll have to go back. Perry is currently fighting a war on two fronts: one on his state’s border with Mexico and one with the White House.
