The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, MI, filed Eden Food’s initial challenge to the HHS Mandate in March 2013. After being denied a temporary injunction preventing enforcement of the HHS Mandate by a federal district court and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, TMLC filed a petition for review with the Supreme Court.  That petition had been held in abeyance pending the decision in the Hobby Lobby case.

18 Stats That Prove That Government Dependence Has Reached Epidemic Levels ||By Michael Snyder


Did you know that the number of Americans getting benefits from the federal government each month exceeds the number of full-time workers in the private sector by more than 60 million?  In other words, the number of people that are taking money out of the system is far greater than the number of people that are putting money into the system.

And did you know that nearly 70 percent of all of the money that the federal government spends goes toward entitlement and welfare programs?  When it comes to the transfer of wealth, nobody does it on a grander scale than the U.S. government.  Most of what the government does involves taking money from some people and giving it to other people.  In fact, at this point that is the primary function of the federal government.

Republicans Redistribute Wealth Better than Democrats || By Michael Bargo Jr.

When President Obama ran for office in 2008 he mentioned that he intended to make income redistribution a major focus of his presidency.

Democrats claim that only their candidates are qualified to redistribute wealth from the rich to the poor. They characterize their adversaries, the Republican Party, as the party of the selfishly wealthy. Republican policies, Democrats say, are designed to seize wealth from the working class and poor and funnel it to the richest so the wealthiest few can hoard it. Consequently, they predict that under Republicans the working class and poor become worse off.  In other words, Republican policies have the affect of allowing the rich to get richer while the poor get poorer.

Obama releases $3.9T budget || By Erik Wasson


President Obama on Tuesday released an election-year budget proposal that calls for $3.9 trillion in spending in fiscal 2015.

Deficit reduction takes a backseat in the budget to jobs initiatives Democrats hope will be popular with voters.

The central elements of the proposal are $56 billion in new stimulus spending above the discretionary budget cap in place for next year, $302 billion in infrastructure spending over four years and a series of tax breaks for lower-income workers.

The initiatives would be fully paid for by increasing taxes on corporations and wealthy individuals.

The stimulus spending is split evenly between defense and non-defense initiatives, and focuses on funds for basic research, elementary education, manufacturing initiatives, jobs training, climate change preparation and restoring cuts to the Internal Revenue Service.

“We have made progress over the last 5 years. But our work is not done. This budget provides a  roadmap to ensuring middle class families and those working to be a part of the middle class can feel secure in their jobs, homes, and budgets,” Obama states in the budget message.


The budget projects that by 2024, the deficit would be 1.6 percent of the economy, an improvement over the 1.7 percent deficit projected for 2023 in the last blueprint.

Last year, the White House projected 10 years of deficits added up to $5.2 trillion, while this year’s blueprint puts the number at $4.9 trillion.
