The reason the same people continue to be voted into local office is because we can’t find good people to run against them. Are you up for it?

If politicians weren’t allowed to go home until they resolved this financial crisis, they would take this much more seriously.

OK, Washington, get over the ego trips and power plays, and just get it done.

I applaud these senior Republican legislators for breaking ranks with Grover Norquist. You can’t govern a country by signing a pledge and expecting people to stick with them for eternity. How many marriages even survive that?
