  1. Rating agencies take calm approach to TRIA expirationRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Dec 19 | Business Insurance

    The lapse of the federal governments' terrorism insurance backstop program is unlikely to have any short-term impact on the ratings of insurance companies, according to rating agencies. The program, created by the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, will expire on Dec. 31 because the Senate failed to consider a measure passed by the House of Representatives that would have extended the program for six years.

    As a business, real estate and mortgage consultant, I'm always being asked for a prognostication of the market place . When asked this question my typical reply is, "Why do you ask? How does it matter?" As is typical, those asking this question are looking for a more insightful and deliberate response.

    Nov 8, 2014 | Right Wing News

    Too much power being grabbed by Washington - Obamacare, environmental regulations, education standards. That's a constant complaint of conservatives not only during Barack Obama's presidency but during George W. Bush's as well.

    And for the fourth straight year, the CPC's budget blueprint will be ridiculed by conservatives, mostly ignored by the corporate press, and will be consigned to legislative oblivion. But the "Better Off Budget" deserves a better fate.

    DUMMERSTON, Vt. -- "Among the many visionary goals of our nation's right wing - impoverish older people, starve the poor, deny climate change, outlaw abortion and contraception, eliminate healthcare for millions - few are more foundational than defunding education in general and higher education in particular."

    It would stand to reason that if you won a presidential election by a solid margin campaigning against cutting Social Security and Medicare - something that has wide support among Americans - that you wouldn't make that the cornerstone of the first budget proposal of your second term. Given his record of compromising with Republicans before negotiations ever begin, this not a shock.

    Jan 24, 2013 | American Reporter

    Some conservatives in Congress are outraged over the idea that the Obama Administration could thwart their plans to threaten blow up the economy if the President doesn't approve steep cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. But there are a few conservatives who remember who won last November's presidential election and are willing to take President Obama at his word when he said that he's not going to negotiate with the Republican leadership in Congress who want to link a vote on the federal debt ceiling to making those cuts in social welfare spending.

    Sep 3, 2012 | American Reporter

    Mitt Romney's speech to the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa was not among the great ones that conventions of both parties have heard in recent decades, but it did accomplish two important things: It enlarged the mental portrait most of us have of this quintessentially corporate man, and it made it seem possible that he could pull this country out of its economic morass. As it stands tonight, here amid the quiet lakes and hills of northern Georgia, I have finally seen with clarity that Mitt Romney's chances of being our next President are excellent.

    Aug 30, 2012 | American Reporter

    Almost every conservative political columnist, pundit, commentator, blogger, and freelance bloviator has written about the decline and forthcoming death of the labor movement. They happily point to Wisconsin, where Republican Gov. Scott Walker, shortly after taking office in January 2011, took advantage of a brand-new Republican majority in the Wisconsin House and Senate to ram through legislation that stripped numerous collective bargaining rights away from public employee unions.

    Aug 29, 2011 | American Reporter

    When a coven of buffoons and bigots disguised in the bodies of "birthers" figured that anyone with dark skin and a foreign name had to be born outside the U.S., Barack Obama provided a birth certificate, a state-certified copy of the "long form" that detailed he was born in Hawaii, which some birthers apparently think is a foreign territory, to a mother who was a natural-born U.S. citizen. That, of course, was not enough for the whackadoodles who claimed, among other things, that the President's birth certificate was altered or forged.

    Tax relief for the middle class came at the price of extended tax cuts for the wealthy and a cut in Social Security payroll taxes that may ultimately threaten the long-term survival of the program. Repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and allowing gays to openly serve in the military came at the price of a ban on trials in civilian courts for Guantanamo detainees and indefinite detention for many of them.

    U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky is the only person sitting on President Obama's deficit reduction commission who is a progressive. Since Schakowsky is outnumbered on the commission by conservatives who have already made up their minds about cutting benefits for the working class and cutting taxes for the upper class, she has had a hard time getting her ideas heard.

    After seven hours in the Florida sun greeting voters for the Democrats, I left to get breakfast and ran out of gas as soon as I left the parking lot. Stuck in the median gap, I crossed myself and said a prayer for help; in about 30 seconds, Crystina Page stopped in her old blue van.

    With cuts in welfare payments and hikes in public housing rents - and 490,000 job cuts in the public sector - Britain's Conservative Party Prime Minister David Cameron hopes to slash a budget deficit that is just over half of that in the United States. But as he watches the reaction in France among workers rioting in the streets of Paris, Lyon, Nice and Marseilles, among other cities, over retirement age issues, he must wonder what is in store for London when the hammer comes down there.

    The House Republicans' long-awaited "Pledge to America" came out last week, and it's hard to believe that they could cram so many faulty assumptions, misstatements, fuzzy math and just plain lies into one 21-page document. Despite the claim that the document was written in consultation with average Americans, House Minority Leader John Boehner apparently chose the more direct approach.
