Harry Reid Set to Release “Foolish” Budget Plan

In May, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said that “There’s no need to have a Democratic budget in my opinion.” and that “It would be  foolish for us to do a budget at this stage.” The do-nothing Senate, led by Reid, has failed to do much of anything – useful or otherwise –  on the nation’s budget crisis.

Debt-o-crats Are Spending U.S. Into Depression

Should the U.S. government, which has amassed a staggering debt of $14.5 trillion (about $4 trillion of that since President Obama took office), increase its debt limit? The question ought to be rhetorical; $47,000 per citizen is quite enough, thank you. Polls indicate that many voters don’t fully understand the ongoing debt ceiling debate, but even the least sophisticated laborer ...

Sheila Jackson-Lee. Just her name alone invokes controversy. Never fear, she is at it again!

Wisconsin’s Public Union Problem

With the successful push in Wisconsin to end collective bargaining with the public sector unions, unions and their Democrat allies have filed for numerous state-level recall elections.

Barack Obama and the Family Budget: A Complete Disconnect

Last week our President held a press conference on the ongoing negotiations regarding the debt ceiling.  The presser highlighted some real concerns about President Obama.

Democrats Dumb Things Down Better Than Republicans

The debt ceiling debate will most-likely become the GOP’s fault. Not because the lion’s share of spending is from Republican policies, but because Democrats are much better at speaking in generalities, obscuring facts and planting doubt. Rep. Jim Jordan, chairman of the Republican Study Committee, was on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace facing Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Maryland). Chris ...

Cut, Cap and Balance [RSC Summary]

Economists agree that the U.S. will face a major debt crisis within the next few years. Erskine Bowles, the top Democrat on President Obama’s debt commission, calls this “the most predictable economic crisis in history.” One-time spending cuts will not be enough to avert the coming crisis.

Eat Your Peas!

“Do as I say not as I do”. We have all heard this phrase at least a time or two in our life. I would most likely hear from my Dad when he would bypass using the right tool for the job at hand or not using safety devices while performing a quick fix on something around the house. Some ...
