WASHINGTON EXAMINER — Sen. Rand Paul's days-long quest to find the House Republican bill to repeal and replace Obamacare was derided by GOP lawmakers as a "publicity stunt," but it might just put the Kentucky congressman back in the mix when it comes to influencing Congress as it prepares to make a series of key policy decisions....

PHILIP KLEIN — In releasing their healthcare plan on Monday, House Republican leaders sent a signal loud and clear: liberalism has already won. Barring radical changes, Republicans will not be passing a bill that ushers in a new era of market-based healthcare. In reality, the GOP will either be passing legislation that rests on the same philosophical premise as Obamacare, or will pass nothing at all, and thus keep Obamacare itself in place.... (more)

ALAN KEYES — There is a very disturbing pattern here. We declare Jesus' message and critique rival beliefs such as Islam. Some people don't like what we say, and threaten violence to silence us.
