There is a well known saying which most of us have heard. It goes: “You think it’s expensive now. Wait until it’s free.”

We heard it from those darned conservatives and fiscal hawks prior to the passage of ObamaCare, and the left claimed we were crying wolf. We said: “you think health insurance is expensive now – wait until it’s free.” And the left laughed and called us fearmongers.

They on the left knew that ObamaCare, the government manipulation of the health insurance market, would actually save us money, because – you know – that’s what always happens when the public sector injects itself into the private sector.

And son-of-a-gun if they weren’t right. On average, everyone saved over $2500, just as it was advertised by Obama. Oh wait…that must have happened on Earth 2, where Hillary Clinton is president.

Here on Earth 1, everything the government gets involved in always ends up costing more – a lot more. ObamaCare is just one example. Another that most of are all too aware of is the cost of higher education. read more

Podcast – Illegals Get Free College

Today I discuss two articles from the College Fix which explain how both DePaul and Emory Universities are developing programs to allow illegal aliens to attend the schools for free, or at least at drastically reduced levels. And the fun and fair part is that the rest of the student body at DePaul will have to pay additional fees to allow it. Isn’t that great.

So if you’re an American citizen, or even a legal international student you will be expected to pay extra – on top of the skyrocketing tuition you already pay. But that’s fair, because as I explain, it’s every illegal’s right to a free college education. read more
