Pull, altogether now!!! Let go Nancy, or we break your arms off.
This weekend’s New York Times’ hit job on would-be Speaker John Boehner and his “lobbyist friends,” you might think, as the reporter clearly wants you to think, that John Boehner is cozier with lobbyists than most powerful politicians are.
- Nancy Pelosi has raised almost twice as much money from lobbyists this election as Boehner has?
- At least 18 House Democrats have raised more lobbyist cash this election than Boehner has.
- Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid have pocketed more lobbyist cash in the past 18 months than Boehner has raised in the past 6 elections, combined?
But wouldn’t it be better if it all would stop? And what about earmarks? Earmarks are the root of the problem, also known as lobbyist paybacks.
Throw some water on Nancy Pelosi! Melt the witch. Donate, volunteer, and vote for John Dennis! http://JohnDennis2010.com.
The budget deficit will hit $1.342 trillion this year, the Congressional Budget Office forecast on Thursday, down slightly from its March projection of $1.368 trillion, according to a government source.CBO, the Congress’ nonpartisan budget analyst, also forecast a $1.066 trillion deficit for fiscal year 2011, which begins on October 1, up slightly from the March estimate of $996 billion.
The numbers show that without significant changes in U.S. tax and spending laws, Washington will struggle to dig its way out of a deficit hole that is expected to play a major role in this year’s Nov 2 midterm congressional elections as American anxiety about the economy grows.
Weekly unemployment is running 450-500,000, the economic destruction of the US economy is ongoing. And it’s all on purpose.
