Save Us Oh Lord, From Well-Meaning Fools!

Here we go again. Congressional Republicans are about to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Vice President Biden and Sen. Mitch McConnell were locked in urgent talks late Sunday over the “fiscal cliff” after Democrats offered several significant concessions on taxes, including a proposal to raise rates only on earnings over $450,000 a year. […]

Please, Let’s Try Out The Clinton Tax Rates

Finally, someone has articulated the sanity behind embracing the so-called fiscal cliff: Don’t get me wrong: It would be better not to raise taxes on anyone, pursue pro-growth tax reform and cut the size of government instead. But that’s not what the American people voted to do last month. Americans cast their ballots for big […]

Compasionate Death Panels

The fact is, the big-government liberals need to find more money to fund their risky and chaotic fantasies (reference the mortgage meltdown that led to the 2008 Great Recession as one example of liberal devastation, and the mountains of Obama-Debt piling up on our children and their children as another example). They are borrowing $1.4 […]

Fiscal Cliff Nonsense

The Tea Party/Libertarian insurgent voters of 2010 know the best available answer to the stealing of money from future generations is to embrace the so-called fiscal cliff.  All other options are result in more theft and more kick-the-problem-down-the-rode. So far, the best deficit reduction package on the table is the fiscal cliff. But the Political […]

Let Main Street Lead By Example

This political cartoon is all the GOP, Tea Party and Libertarian need to understand to carry the day in DC and build a new political force in the nation that will take on ALL the special interests in DC [H/T Hotair].

GOP Handwringers Need A Chill Pill

Update:  This is well said and to the point [H/T Powerline]: But all concerned are working within a fiscal system that has become seriously pathological. The cliff is the latest expression of that pathology. …. It should be a matter of acute national embarrassment that our leaders can pretend to be redistributing from wealthy to […]

Bring On The Tax Hikes

I am barely holding out hope the House GOP can grow a backbone and provide the nation a much needed fiscal wake up call come January 1. In other words, I hope the House lets the sequestration [a.k.a. part of the fiscal cliff] take hold. Because to be honest, the wired in spending cuts are […]
