Fresh off a Supreme Court ruling in the case of McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, a ruling which struck down overall limits on campaign contributions, the hypocrisy of the Democrat party in New York has been on full display.

Sean Eldridge, a congressional candidate in New York’s 19th district, released a statement in which...

The President of the United States, Democratic Senators, Congressmen, and mainstream journalists have called us terrorists, suicide bombers, insane and racists because we actually want to keep our health insurance and doctors, and want other people to do the same.

It somehow is considered illegitimate and terroristic that we are...

Sure, I disagree with Marco Rubio on the Gang of 8 immigration bill, particularly the amnesty part.

But what’s most galling is that Rubio appears to have been played by Chuck Schumer on the Democratic side, and McCain/Graham on the Republican side, suckered into being the point man drawing fire on a...

To say that there is disgust growing in the ranks is an understatement.

If adults who broke the law to come here illegally get citizenship, it will be a spit in the face of millions of legal immigrants who followed the rules, and many millions more who wait patiently on the other...

Warren Buffett has an op-ed in The NY Times bemoaning the fact that he and other super-wealthy investors pay a lower percentage of their income in taxes than their secretaries and other lower-paid staff members.  This is an argument frequently heard from Democrats.

But in making that argument Buffett misleadingly lumps federal income...

Yawn.  Chuck “my flight attendant is a bitch and Scott Brown is an far-right teabagger” Schumer is threatening to use Newt’s criticism of Paul Ryan in the 2012 election cycle.

Notice how Democrats have been talking lately about how Republicans in Congress are held hostage by Tea Party-backed new members?  And how for years Democrats have made sure to use the term “extremist” when referring to Tea Parties?

It’s a pre-planned line of attack by the Democratic Causus, and one of the enforcers...

In a fundraising e-mail supporting Martha Coakley in the special election to fill the seat vacated by Ted Kennedy, Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) referred to then-candidate, now-Senator Scott Brown, as a “far-right tea-bagger.”

At the time Schumer made the comment, everyone knew what “teabagger” meant in Democratic parlance. Nice.
