JOHN STOSSEL The Republicans promise less intrusive, less expensive government. But will they deliver? In the past, they have said they would shrink the state, but then they came into power and spent more. Consider George W. Bush's eight horrendous years: The budget grew 89 percent -- from $1.86 trillion to $3.52 trillion... (more)

REP. MARSHA BLACKBURN Just before Christmas, after Congress had extended tax rates and the halls of the congressional office buildings had emptied, after Air Force One was wheels-up for Hawaii, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) did a remarkable thing.

JOSEPH FARAH I'm beginning to believe the term "fiscal conservative" is an oxymoron.

FRANK GAFFNEY In one of the great comedic routines of all time, Abbott and Costello went round and round about a baseball player by the name of Who and which base he was on. As Chinese President Hu Jintao shows up to be feted in Washington this week, the question is not whether Who's on first but whether Mr. Hu's becoming first... (more)

JOHN HAYWARD The conservative movement is emerging from a week of the most sustained media attack it has endured in a decade. An attempt was made to use the tragedy in Tucson to render the whole of conservative thought illegitimate and dangerous. Which of the aspirants for the 2012 presidential nomination spoke out for us? Who stood up to be counted, when the Right faced this detestable slander?... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN I agree with President Obama. When it comes to politicizing random violence, he and his supporters have been "far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than" they do. Recognition is the first step toward reconciliation. It's time to recognize the poisonous pervasiveness of the Blame Righty meme... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES One of the first orders of business for the new Congress is to defund public broadcasting. Last week, Rep. Doug Lamborn, Colorado Republican, introduced legislation to do just that.
