Medicare Bankruptcy Looms Without Major Reforms

It's something everyone knows, but no one wants to talk about: Medicare's cash position makes Enron's business model look downright reputable. The reality is Medicare is bleeding cash, a fact disguised by creative accounting. According to yesterday's release of the 2012 Trustees Report, in 2010 Medicare took in $273.9 billion in payroll taxes and beneficiary premiums, but spent $568.3 billion in medical services. That means last year Medicare ran a $294.3 billion cash shortfall. And 2011 wasn't the exception, it's the rule. Since LBJ passed Medicare legislation in 1965, the program ...

Santorum: No Alliance With Gingrich

Rick Santorum says no to an alliance of sorts with fellow presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, however he did praise the former Speaker. Santorum said he would not be here today without Gingrich's help. "Campaigns aren't about alliances, campaigns are about ideas, they're about candidates and their backgrounds....Newt's a friend and he's someone I really do enjoy, we have some differences, we obviously have some different takes on the events of history when we served together. But let people look at the track record. I stand by the fact that we were the folks, along with John Boehner and ...

H.R. Gross' legacy lives on in this campaign

What do Gov. Terry Branstad, Sen. Chuck Grassley and former U.S. Rep. Jim Nussle have in common with Ron Paul? All four have evoked the name of former Iowa congressman H.R. Gross (full disclosure, he was my great-great-uncle) on the campaign trail. All four have tried to carry on his legacy of being a watchdog of the treasury. Pundits who are shocked with Paul’s rise in the polls would do well to remember H.R. and how he won 13 terms in Congress from this state with very similar beliefs, including the 1964 Democrat landslide.

Braley Gutted Medicare to Pay for Obamacare
At a time when Iowans need real leaders to preserve, protect, and strengthen Medicare for current and future generations, the three-term liberal Democrat incumbent Bruce Braley voted to gut $716 billion from Medicare to pay for Obamacare and poses a “direct threat” to Medicare, according to U.S. congressional candidate Ben Lange. Lange believes we must [...]
Latham Tips His Hand?
By Craig Robinson Nathan Gonzales of the Rothenberg Political Report has noticed that Congressman Tom Latham has officially changed the name of his campaign committee. Republican Rep. Tom Latham is changing the name of his campaign committee from “Latham for Congress” to “Iowans for Latham” ahead of a potential run for the U.S. Senate. The [...]
Bruce Barely Known
Bruce Braley has served in Congress for the past six years.  During that time he has represented 23 of the state’s 99 counties.  That’s nowhere near the 56 counties that Congressman Tom Latham or the 53 counties that Congressman Steve King has represented over the years.  Still, an argument can be made that Braley has [...]
