Even as Mitt Romney and a host of other Republicans leaders were urging Rep.

Thanks to the Heritage Foundation's report on Taxmageddon, taxpayers became aware of the $500 billion of new taxes the government is expected to extract from the economy starting the first of the year. What they didn’t learn is how devious and pernicious some of those taxes are because they are buried so deeply in the ObamaCare monstrosity, otherwise known perversely as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

An inmate of New Hampshire State Prison, serving a sentence of life without parole for the murder of two Dartmouth College professors 11 years ago, may be seeking a reduced sentence based on a recent Supreme Court ruling that a mandatory life-without-parole sentence is unconstitutional when imposed on someone who was a juvenile at the time he committed the crime.

Conflicting rulings came down from the 11th U.S. Court of Appeals in cases involving immigration laws in the states of Alabama and Georgia. According to the federal appeals court on the Georgia law, law enforcement may verify the immigration status of criminal suspects who do not show proper identification. But that same court determined that it would be unconstitutional for the state of Alabama to check the immigration status of schoolchildren when they enroll, or to require illegal immigrants to carry identification.
