This does and does not deserve comment. I mean, it’s so tempting, but in the end, when a liberal wants to supply his own rope. …
Here we have one of Virginia’s own, U.S. Representative Gerry Connolly, a Fairfax County Democrat, telling the Federal Reserve Bank Chairman Ben Bernanke on June 9 there’s no money in the federal budget to get cut (H/T Norman Leahy at Tertium Quids). Timing, they say, is everything: As if set up to be punked (Hanother Tertium Quids H/T to Josh Eboch), The Heritage Foundationposted this video the very next day, complete with cartoon character and a multiple choice word problem Rep. Connolly surely would fail. When they say we don’t make Washingtons, Jeffersons and Madisons anymore, the Connollys of the world make it hard to argue. (For budget cutting ideas, see Cut Spending Now.)
Rep. Connolly: A $3.5 trillion budget and nowhere to cut.
Maybe start with the first class travel, extra postal workers, NASCAR sponsorship and aid to Chinese prostitutes!
It’s absolutely astounding, but true: The Communist Chinese, who even know that excessive corporate tax rates kill jobs, is doing a better job at fostering economic growth than the current Washington regime. The further irony is that those now running our government probably think they’re doing it the socialist way.
None other than hotel magnate Steve Wynn recently went off on CNBC about Utopian panaceas coming out of Washington that are driving the country into bankruptcy. Say what you want about Steve Wynn, but for a man who has little eyesight, he has had the vision to create thousands of jobs — and wants to create thousands more. But not in America, now; not in this environment. Instead, he’s looking to the East fore new opportunities, where he said, things are more stable. He says we’re becoming Greece, the health care law will not do what was promised and that the Tea Party movement is legit. Hear his candid and passionate comments in full:
Steve Wynn: Washington’s spending has made America unstable.
