Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

AHP: Big Government in Three Easy Letters

From Michael F. Cannon of the Cato Institute:

House Republicans plan to vote this week on a health care proposal called association health plans, or AHPs (H.R. 525). Considering that Republicans claim to be the party of small government, it's a wonder they keep pushing this big-government idea year after year. It's also a wonder that the Senate Democrats who defeat it year after year don't realize the enormous power AHPs would give federal politicians and bureaucrats.
