Headline Roundup (5/26/10)

Today's roundup covers Obama's most recent and very serious corruption scandal, more lies from the government about job creation, the unintended consequences of Arizona's illegal immigration crackdown, the Republicans' dire lack of solutions or substance, a cheap jab at Dick Cheney (but those are so fun), reasons why Facebook users are considering leaving, the national debt passing the 13 trillion dollar mark, and some libertarian solutions to fix our out-of-control health care system.

Re-posted from Young Americans for Liberty:

  • Corruption: Has Barack Obama committed an impeachable offense? Congressman Joe Sestak claims that he was offered a job by the Obama Administration to stay out of the Democratic Senate Primary with Obama-supporter Arlen Specter.
  • Unintended Consequences: "Arizona's new crackdown on illegal immigration will increase crime in U.S. cities, not reduce it, by driving a wedge between police and immigrant communities, police chiefs from several of the state's and the nation's largest cities said Tuesday"
  • Have $117,000? Because that's how much you owe as a taxpayer now that the national debt clock has hit 13 trillion dollars ($13,000,000,000,000)!
  • Libertarian Solutions: What's Really Wrong with the Health Care Industry? The real problem with the American healthcare system is that prices are continually rising, making healthcare unaffordable to an ever-increasing fraction of the population. And recent healthcare legislation has addressed none of the causes of high prices.
