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 Even this figure is already outdated: consider the additional promised payouts with the passing of the healthcare bill.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!

State of the Union: President Obama’s Chance to Explain

President Barack Obama will deliver his State of the Union Address tonight at 9 o’clock. Given the state of the economy, it will be interesting to hear how much of his speech includes proposals that could actually stimulate job growth, shrink the fiscal deficit, and encourage private investment.

North Carolina activists have secured a permit to counter-protest ObamaCare’s media and press blitz as support for government-run health care continues to slide in the midst of ever-increasing questions to its size ($1.5 trillion plus) and scope (a Trojan Horse public option that will crowd out private insurance).
