    $1.6 Trillion

    That’s how much our federal deficit for 2011 was before “the biggest annual spending cut in history,” as President Obama puts it, and just as big after.  That’s just how huge our spending problem is.  Even after a prolonged battle over cuts to the federal budget, the rounding error worth of cuts doesn’t even budge the number.  This is not only disgraceful but deeply, ridiculously | Read More »

    Rational Florida Republican Party Leadership?

    Today’s news reports of Bill McCollum’s terse post-election comments as well as speculation some Republicans could endorse Alex Sink for Governor are very insightful.

    Why I Will Vote for Bill McCollum in the FL Primary

    Defund Them All

    Democratic Representative Betty McCollum of Minnesota’s 4th Congressional district thinks she’s clever. She has proposed a bill she has named “ACORN”, the Against Corporations Organizing to Rip-off the Nation Act. It is intended as a clumsy foil against the defunding of the community organizing group ACORN. The bill, in particular, targets Pfizer Corporation which has contributed to Michele Bachmann’s campaign in the past. McCollum is | Read More »
