If the Democrats get their way and socialize our health care system, wherever will mothers in British Columbia go to have their babies? Mothers in British Columbia are having a baby boom, but it’s the United States that has to deliver, and that has some proud Canadians blasting their highly touted government healthcare system. “I’m […]

Yesterday, in a speech at Brigham Young University, Harry Reid uncorked a line that ought to get a good bit more MSM attention than it will.
