The now infamous Ted Cruz statement on the abolition of the IRS, and introduction of a flat tax system raises at least a couple important issues. While many fiscal conservatives are undoubtedly salivating over the possibility of making this dream come true, the problem still lies in the concept of whittling down government in an environment where both sides of the aisle are arguably addicted to spending. Flat tax always seems to sound nice, but yet again, this is not necessarily something that will work if implemented. But, it’s always nice to sit back and enjoy a statement about something we all wish could come true easily.

It wasn’t the first time, and it probably won’t be the last time, but co-host of The Five on the Fox News Channel, Bob Beckel dropped the “f-bomb” on live television, again.
During a panel discussion about Rep. Paul Ryan’s plan to reform Medicare, fellow co-host Eric Bolling hit Beckel in the arm.
Beckel immediately stopped talking, and moments later had his “lapse of common sense”.
“If you do that one more time, you’re f**king toast!” Beckel screamed at Bolling, then immediately covered his mouth when he realized what he just said.
Bolling and the rest of The Five co-hosts continued on with their point, but it was as if no one was listening. Everyone was still shocked with Beckel’s on-air foul. Unlike the first time Beckel dropped the “f-bomb” on live tv, Beckel apologized under his own power at the end of the segment, and again at the end of the show.
At the beginning of the next segment, Bolling came on air apologizing for hitting Beckal hard in the arm and instigating the situation.
Then at the end of the show, Beckel added $20 into his swear jar, then Bolling threw in $100 because he felt responsible for the whole fiasco.
