McGurn on the Arrogance of the Elites
futureofcapitalism.com

William McGurn has a Wall Street Journal column tying together the California gay marriage ruling, the Ground Zero mosque, the Arizona immigration law, and ObamaCare all as examples of elite "moralizing about the ugly motives of the American people," the belief, shared by much of the press, that "You can't trust ordinary Americans."

His point is less to attack gay marriage, ObamaCare, and the Ground Zero mosque or to defend the Arizona immigration law than to argue against the assumption that opponents of gay marriage, ObamaCare, and the Ground Zero mosque or defenders of the Arizona immigration law are all a bunch of bigots.

McGurn on Health Care

In his Wall Street Journal column, William McGurn writes that if Republicans take over the House of Representatives in next month's election, they should have hearings on health care.

Maybe at this hearing the Republicans could call Speaker Boehner himself to testify about that passage in the Republican "Pledge to America" that says, "We will make it illegal for an insurance company to deny coverage to someone with prior coverage on the basis of a pre-existing condition."

McGurn on 'Monuments to Me'
futureofcapitalism.com

A Texas Republican, Michael McCaul, has the excellent idea of a law preventing members of Congress from using taxpayer money to fund parks, buildings, bridges, tunnels, railroad stations, or academic centers that are named after themselves. William McGurn has a column about it in the Wall Street Journal.

This is even a "read it here first": Back on June 28, 2010, I had a post here about the Frank R. Lautenberg Rail Station — which Mr. McGurn uses as the lead paragraph in his column — that concluded, "How about a law that says no federal money can be used to name anything for a politician until the politician is dead?"
