Pelosi’s Drug Reform is Socialism in Disguise

Don’t fall for socialist schemes when it comes to healthcare. The latest scheme is orchestrated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on prescription drug reform. Her plan fits right into the same radical agenda of Medicare-for-All, free college, higher taxes, and government control over any and every industry. Ken Blackwell has the commentary: Like other big-government solutions that promise lower prices, the Pelosi plan would limit access to life-saving drugs and stifle innovation.  In the key component of her plan, Pelosi claims that her plan will lower drug costs for Medicaid recipients by allowing the government to “negotiate” the price.  ...

Hurricanes are Costly, Socialism is Costlier

As Hurricane Dorian starts to move north on the eastern seaboard, the United States braces for its economic impact. AccuWeather estimates that the total damage and economic loss will be about $8-10 billion. Hurricanes have a devastating impact on countries on a personal and economic level. One could make the same argument for socialism. Implementing socialism in the U.S. would yield the same economic effect in one year as 36.4 hurricanes–each equivalent in devastation to Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Harvey, and Hurricane Sandy. The five costliest hurricanes in American history resulted in average damage of $99.4 billion for each event. To put the ...

Bernie Sanders’ Criminal Justice Reform Plan is Just Socialism in Disguise

Bernie Sanders must have officially lost his mind. Sanders’ campaign released his Criminal Justice Reform plan, but the measures are just a delivery system for socialism. Packed neatly into the very end of the proposal on Sanders’ own website are several policy proposals that have nothing to do with crime and everything to do with increasing the size and scope of government. Our own Jenny Beth Martin already debunked some of the proposals, but let’s get into the others… From Bernie Sanders’ own website: As president, Bernie will: -Enact a federal jobs guarantee to provide good jobs at a living wage revitalizing and taking ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: To Stop Socialism, There Needs To Be Awareness

Montana Republican Sen. Steve Daines introduced a new resolution—S. Res. 289—to denounce socialism as it “poses a significant threat to freedom, liberty and economic prosperity.” Is it necessary? Absolutely! The problem is very few people out there know and understand the incoming threat of socialism. RealClear Politics has Jenny Beth’s commentary: The truth of the Bennett “open gates” test is so obvious that if I did not know better, I would think the Daines resolution is irrelevant and unnecessary. Yet, according to the polling industry’s best practitioners, too many of our fellow citizens out there – tens of millio...

Socialism Rears Its Old Ugly Head

When it comes to political philosophy, there are two ideas so intrinsically opposite they cannot help but clash together in fiery ways. Conservatism, a pillar of society in the United States, and Socialism, the economic and political system that has ravaged countless fledgling nations and decimated populations. How has this horrible idea once again taken hold in the minds of Americans, youths especially? Heritage may have an answer: Is a specter of socialism haunting America, especially among our millennials? There is disquieting evidence of many young Americans’ sympathy for socialism. Exhibit A: 2.052 million people under the age of 30 voted for ...

Socialism Promises A Lot but Ends in Misery, Says Socialism Survivor

To Bernie Sanders, “Democratic socialism means requiring and achieving political and economic freedom in every community in this country.” Survivor of Communist China, Helen Raleigh, would disagree. Raleigh was born in Chairman Mao's Communist China and grew up with a “shortage of everything: food, clothing, shoes, and medicine.” Raleigh is an author who immigrated from China and writes about what life was like in her home country and why Americans should stop glorifying ideas like socialism. Her great-grandfather was a Chinese farmer and a landowner when the Communist Party came to power in 1949. The party deemed land owners to be ...
