This Chart Shows How Much Federal Debt Per Household Has Risen Since Reid's Senate Passed a Budget - The Blaze - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Friday vowed to refuse to work with Mitt Romney should the GOP candidate win the presidential election.
“Mitt Romney’s fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his ‘severely conservative’ agenda is laughable,” Sen. Reid said in a statement.
“Mitt Romney has demonstrated that he lacks the courage to stand up to the tea party, kowtowing to their demands time and again. There is nothing in Mitt Romney’s record to suggest he would act any differently as president,” the statement added.
But you know what? The idea that Sen. Reid doesn’t want to accomplish anything shouldn’t surprise anyone. Indeed, as majority leader, it has been more than 1,200 days since Reid’s senate has passed a budget.
And do you know what has happened since then? Federal debt per household has risen by a whopping $43,000, as the following chart from the Senate Budget Committee Republican staff under Ranking Member Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) clearly illustrates: Read more........
Obama EPA 2nd Term Agenda Revealed - Hot Air - If you thought the War on Coal and various other job dampening EPA initiatives over the past few years were bad, apparently that was only a skirmish compared to what’s in store after this Tuesday. At the Examiner, Conn Carroll has the inside scoop on how Santa’s little elves at Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency have been very busy lately. But you might not care for the presents they have in mind for us all.
President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency has devoted an unprecedented number of bureaucrats to finalizing new anti-coal regulations that are set to be released at the end of November, according to a source inside the EPA.
More than 50 EPA staff are now crashing to finish greenhouse gas emission standards that would essentially ban all construction of new coal-fired power plants. Never before have so many EPA resources been devoted to a single regulation. The independent and non-partisan Manhattan Institute estimates that the EPA’s greenhouse gas coal regulation will cost the U.S. economy $700 billion.
Carroll goes on to speculate that the mad dash is a result of panic at the agency over the possibility that Obama may lose the election. They would, in that case, have to rush out a bunch of regulations which, “would then be very hard for a President Romney to undo.”
I don’t tend to agree with that. It’s certainly possible that they could roll out some regulations in the next seven weeks, but shortly after President Romney is sworn in and put his own people in place at the agency, those could pretty well be swept aside at the stroke of a pen. (Or so I understand it, anyway.) Read more.....
