The Ethanol Boondoggle and The Hawkeye Handouts

‘Tis the Season for Giving—Not Taking

During the holiday season, we are often reminded to give to those that are less fortunate. This time of year, many of us reach into our own pockets to donate to charitable causes that we hold dear. Even in the face of tough economic times, Americans have shown that we are still generous with our hard-earned money. In 2009, Americans voluntarily gave an estimated $307.65 billion to private charities.

John Boehner's Tea Party Nightmare

BY Benjamin Sarlin

Benjamin Sarlin on the battle that can’t come soon enough for Democrats.Rep. John Boehner owes no small part of his imminent promotion to the speaker’s office to the Tea Party, whose support he courted early and often en route to a landslide takeover of the House. But he may lose that support before he’s even begun to wield his new power.

Will the Republican Leadership Face a Tea Party Rebellion?

BY Huma Khan

The new Congress hasn't been seated yet but signs of a rift are already beginning to emerge between Republican leaders and Tea Party groups who were a driving force propelling many unknown candidates to victory last month.  From the tax cuts extension bill to the food safety legislation to Republican selections for key House committee leadership posts, Tea Party leaders have expressed outrage at what they perceive is a continuation of the same old Washington-style politics.

Outrageous Arrogance
