Barack Obama tries the same failed tactic on ‘stimulus.’
Let me just simplify this for the President’s tired and rather sad proposal on how to pay for his tired and rather sad ‘jobs’ bill: President Barack Obama would pay for his $447 billion jobs plan by ending a series of tax breaks for oil and gas companies, hedge-fund managers and people making more than $200,000, the White House said Monday.

Not precisely the Quote of the Day, William Murchison edition.
More like the From Your Fingers To God’s Eyes of the Day, William Murchison edition: Every Easter/Passover ABC returns the old DeMille semi-classic, “The Ten Commandments” for renewed viewing. We all could benefit by watching the Egyptians try to build a city by flogging the Hebrews half to death. It works only up to a point: The point at which the taskmasters reduce the work | Read More »
