Cronyism is Killing America

The growth of America’s government may soon be outpaced by growth of the average waistline new indicators reveal. Rates of obesity have been increasing over the past several decades, but are now reaching some incredible levels. Currently it's estimated that well over one-third of adults are classified as obese and nearly two-thirds are classified as overweight. Perhaps more distressing is the recent discovery that one in six children are suffering from obesity.

On July 14th and 15th the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a heavily attended hearings on justice reform.

Freedom of (some) Information (for those who can afford it)

On June 2nd, the House of Representatives Committee on oversight and Government Reform began a hearing on the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The hearing spanned two days and was aided by three panels of witnesses.

FOIA is a joke and government agencies are the worst.

Here's what we think of your financial "reform"

The stock market made an attempt to stabilize at lower levels during the middle of this afternoon but was crushed, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling about 180 points in the last hour for a total fall of about 375 points on the day following news that disappointment-in-chief Senator Scott Brown changed his cloture vote on the Democrats' financial regulation bill, giving Harry Reid the 60th vote he needed to bring the measure up for a final vote, most likely in the next couple of days.
