Mitch McConnell Enshrined In The G.O.P. Hall Of Shame

As 2012 wound to a close, the lame duck Congress was faced with coming up with a solution to the self-inflicted financial crisis known as the “fiscal cliff.“ Self-inflicted because it was created by the same gutless politicians during the debt ceiling negotiations in 2011 who were now wringing their hands in search of a solution. One of the gutless politicians involved in those 2011 negotiations was Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell—a position McConnell must really enjoy since Republicans have remained the minority party since he was elected party leader in 2007.

Reaganomics vs. Obamanomics

Government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem. – Ronald Reagan It’s no mystery that government spending is out of control. It’s no mystery that government is too big. And it’s no mystery that America will fail if this continues, which is the motivation behind a new movie coming out this fall. Two versions of the American dream now stand in sharp contrast. One views the money you earned as yours and best allocated by you. It champions the traditional American dream, which has played out millions of times through generations of Americans, of improving one’s lot…
