    The R’s have put forth an idea I can get behind. No budget, no pay. While an article I just heard explains the budget is not a document the President signs, it does layout a framework for how money will be allocated and that is a good thing. I will be notifying my D Senators and R congressman that I would like to them to support this legislation unless someone can explain to me why I shouldn’t.
    On a sour note…Mr. Reid is playing games with the “first day of a new Congress” in regard to voting on the filibuster rules while a supermajority is not needed. Other than the fact that I, a progressive moderate, consider Harry Reid a poster child for hubris, why is he not putting the vote before the Senate?
    If he does not do his job, I may have to put aside $100 to donate to a D willing to run against him in Nev.
    Though if the R’s can come up with more good idea and put aside their own hubris, I can think of some R’s I could get behind if they were in my voting area.

    Wow! Did you see the tiny little Republicans trying to nibble Clinton’s ankles today? She had the facts and they didn’t. It was really funny. Like watching Karl Rove on election night.

    Some “snapshots” From Jindal’s speech:

    When then-Senator Obama voted against raising the debt ceiling, he said he was doing so because the national debt was at an outrageous 8 trillion dollars…and he clarified for effect, saying that is “trillion with a T.”

    Now President Obama has our national debt over 16 trillion dollars and climbing…larger than our entire economy. And he’s not worried about it in the least.

    He calls it progress. You remember his campaign slogan, he says it is “Forward.”

    But we as conservatives must dedicate our energies and our efforts to growing America, to growing the American economy, to showing the younger generations how America can win the future.

    That path does not lie in government. If more government were the answer, our economy would be booming right now. That path has been tried.

    We have fallen into a trap of believing that the world revolves around Washington, that the economy is based there. If we keep believing that, government will grow so big that it will take us all down with it.

    We must lay out the contrast between liberalism’s top-down government solutions and our Bottom-Up real world philosophy.

    We believe in creating abundance, not redistributing scarcity.

    If we created American government today, we would not dream of taking money out of people’s pockets, sending it all the way to Washington, handing it over to politicians and bureaucrats to staple thousands of pages of artificial and political instructions to it, then wear that money out by grinding it through the engine of bureaucratic friction…and then sending what’s left of it back to the states, where it all started, in order to grow the American economy.
