    Romney

    From the Wall Street Journal -

    ...Like most other Republicans, Mr. Romney sets out a target of returning federal spending to around 20% of the economy by the end of his first term. That's in line with the modern historic average and down from the Obama heights of 24%-25%...

    ...To get there, Mr. Romney says he'll apply a simple cost-benefit test across the government: "Is this program so critical, so essential, that we should borrow money from China to pay for it?..."

    And there you have it. There's only a 4% difference between Romney and Obama.

    This is what voting for RINOs gets you.

    That would be about a 20-25% difference, and would be nothing to sneeze at. Actually, huge.

    American Fiscal Awakening

    I filed my 2010 tax return and expected a refund. Instead, I'm being audited!

    In response to the question "Number of dependents", I replied: "12 million
    illegal immigrants; 3 million crack-heads; 42 million unemployable lazy
    bastards; the entire cast of the Jerry Springer Show; 2 million people in
    over 243 prisons; 300,000 leftovers from Katrina; half of Mexico; and 535
    more in the U.S. House and Senate."

    Apparently, this wasn't an acceptable answer".

    "a simple cost-benefit test" It is never simple, Congress will make those decisions.

    Since 43 % of our income goes for interest, it's a moot point.

    Dumb and dumber.
