    Heated Debate Over Healthcare Law

    President Obama's healthcare plan, more commonly known as Obamacare, is being argued over in the Supreme Court. Conservatives, such as Professor Barnett, are not big fans of big government. They believe that the law's mandate that requires everyone to buy insurance is unconstitutional. The whole argument boils down to whether you believe the government should be able to make you buy something for your own good? Professor Randy Barnett believes the healthcare law is going to be deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court justices and that he will ultimately be in the right. The Tea Party movement has found yet another respectable conservative, in Professor Barnett, who can give a face to their desire for limited government.

    Obama Takes On Republicans Over Energy Policy

    With gases prices on the rise, many people have been criticizing Obama over his energy policies.

    "The truth is the price of gas depends on a lot of factors that are often beyond our control,” Mr. Obama said on Saturday in his weekly national address on radio and the Internet. He cited unrest in the Middle East as the major factor in driving up oil prices both recently and last spring and named as contributing causes the rising demand for energy in China and India and market speculation.“It’s easy to promise a quick fix when it comes to gas prices,” Mr. Obama said in the Saturday address. “There just isn’t one. Anyone who tells you otherwise — any career politician who promises some three-point plan for two-dollar gas — they’re not looking for a solution. They’re just looking for your vote.”

    Obama went to speak in several states promoting green energy and sustainability saying that Americans should be looking at more long term solutions rather than short term ones.
