Obama Throws 10,000 Students Under the School Bus

Yesterday President Obama unveiled his budget for 2013. The budget is filled with higher taxes and more spending, however something is missing, The D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program.  This program grants educational opportunities to mostly poor and minority students in Washington D.C.  The Heritage Foundation reported that “[t]he D.C. OSP has been highly successful. According to federally-mandated evaluations of the program, student achievement has increased, and graduation rates of voucher students have increased significantly. While graduation rates in D.C.

One Thousand Days without a Budget

President Obama’s State of the Union address this evening will mark the passage of the 1000th day since the Democrat-controlled Senate passed a budget. In his address this evening, the President will likely propose even more federal spending despite the enormous deficit and the unprecedented $15 trillion dollar national debt. Without a budget from our elected representatives to provide restraint to Washington bureaucrats, this increased spending will continue unchecked.

Decision Week for the Super Committee Czars

Democracy and Power 116:  The citizen’s vote The national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced; the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and controlled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced. If the nation doesn't want to go bankrupt, people must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance. -- attributed to Marcus Tullius Cicero, 55 BC

Drowning in a Sea of Red Ink

A battle royal is brewing between the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and the Obama administration over increasing the debt ceiling.  The House recently rejected a “clean” bill to raise the debt ceiling that did not include any spending reforms.  With the economy lagging and voters rejecting the notion of spending our way to prosperity, the debate over spending is now front and center on the domestic policy agenda. Unfortunately, Democrats have failed to address the issue.

Bold Actions by Bold Senators

Since the Tea Party made so much noise at the polls last fall, we have seen a lot of bold action from Members of the House of Representatives to try to rein in spending, reduce the deficit, and limit the overall scope of government. Unfortunately, Senate leadership is not taking heed and has failed to truly address the major issues facing our country. Despite our looming national debt ($14.3 trillion), they have not proposed any major cuts in spending; they have not reformed entitlement programs; and they have not proposed a budget, balanced or otherwise.
