    The Private Sector Comes Through Again! Jobs, ACA, Speeches And Roads

    in Politics Conservative

    What a nice Jobs Report. Not perfect, but nice. It has a lot of what I look for. Besides job growth, we had signs of less discouragement as 350,000+ people began looking for work again. This led to an uptick in the unemployment rate, but for all the right reasons. That being said, there still reason to raise an eyebrow (or two), but overall, it was a third month in a row of encouraging news.


    Obamacare is under attack. We will look at this upcoming Supreme Court Case, King v Burwell. What will happen this time? Will Roberts jump ship again? Will it be Kennedy this time. I'll tell you why Obamacare opponents should not get their hopes up. The intent of congress will rule this ruling.


    And back to Netanyahu .... As the Grinch said about Christmas, maybe this speech isn't just a speech. Maybe this speech is a little bit more. I wonder which story will have more staying power .... Brian Williams foggy memory or the Netanyahu uproar. In any case, there is now backlash to the backlash and we will talk about it.


    And in that same region, John Kerry says we are 'on the road' to defeating ISIS. I think the Allstate Mayhem dude keeps re-calculating Kerry's GPS. What road is Kerry talking about? Has that road even been built yet? I wonder.


    All this and more Monday night at 8pm EST ..... Come jump into my pond.
