Beware of the Grand Bargain

Democracy and Power 107:  Counting votes Successful … politicians are insecure and intimidated men. They advance politically only as they placate, appease, bribe, seduce, bamboozle or otherwise manage to manipulate the demanding and threatening elements in their constituencies.

Discovered: An UNLIMITED Obamacare Slush Fund

Just when we thought there were no more brazen audacities left to report about in Obamacare, here comes a doozy.    House Republicans have uncovered, tucked away in Section 1311(a) of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), an UNLIMITED Obamacare implementation slush fund. That's right.  Unlimited.

From "Billions to Trillions": Why This Week's House Budget Vote Is So Crucial

This past month's government-shutdown fight pales in comparison to the longer-term budget fight ahead.   In the words of a leading congressional budget-cutter, House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin), "We must now move from saving billions to saving trillions." Ryan is right.  The national debt is skyrocketing at the rate of: • $200,000,000 ($200 million) an hour • $30,000,000,000 ($30 billion) a week • $120,000,000,000 ($120 billion) a month • $1,600,000,000,000 ($1.6 trillion) a year

Sometimes Cutting "Wasteful Spending" Isn't Enough

The Tea Party members of Congress demonstrated Thursday that bipartisanship is possible when used to cut wasteful spending; against all odds, they and Democrats joined together to cancel the second engine for the F-35 which had long been a symbol of government excess (being opposed by both the Bush White House, the Obama White House and the Secretary of Defense).  The Tea Party Caucus also sent an important message that—with the budgetary crisis the nation currently faces—no department ca

The Future of Fiscal Irresponsibility

As Matthew Clemente pointed out in his last entry, the national debt will surpass GDP as soon as 2012. Unfortunately, it gets more frightening—according to the 2008 Financial Report of the U.S. Government, the government has already promised $65 trillion in Medicare and Social Security—more than the GDP of the entire world. Even this figure is already outdated: consider the additional promised payouts with the passing of the healthcare bill.

Wake Up, There Is Work to Do!

I almost didn’t get up this morning. I didn’t want to. If you feel like me today, you are physically and emotionally exhausted after a grueling 15 month battle against the Democrats’ hostile takeover of our health care.
