Downsizing the Federal Government

A department-by-department guide to cutting the federal government's budget from the Cato Institute

Unemployment Keeps Rising "Unexpectedly"


New U.S. claims for unemployment benefits rose unexpectedly last week, highlighting continued labor market weakness.

Is it any wonder that the media is a joke and journalists are less trusted today than ever before?

Government Motors donating to Democrats with Taxpayer Money

GM Resumes Political Giving
The Detroit company gave $90,500 to candidates running in the current election cycle, Federal Election Commission records show.

The beneficiaries include Midwestern lawmakers, mostly Democrats, who have traditionally supported the industry's legislative agenda on Capitol Hill, including Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich.), Sen. Sherrod Brown (D., Ohio) and Rep. John Dingell (D., Mich.).

It isn't unusual for big companies like GM to spend on political campaigns, but complicating GM's situation is that the company is majority-owned by the U.S. government. GM is planning to return to the public stock markets later this year, allowing the U.S. to begin to sell off its roughly 61% stake in the company.

This isn't illegal but it should be. It's an outrage that GM is making political contributions with tax payer money!

WJLA Fires Newsman for a Truthful Non-biased Report

WJLA-TV Channel 7 has fired veteran anchorman Doug McKelway for a verbal confrontation this summer with the station's news director that came after McKelway broadcast a sharply worded live report about congressional Democrats and President Obama.
In his piece, McKelway said the sparsely attended event attracted protesters "largely representing far-left environmental groups." He went on to say the protest "may be a risky strategy because the one man who has more campaign contributions from BP than anybody else in history is now sitting in the Oval Office, President Barack Obama, who accepted $77,051 in campaign contributions from BP."

Well, Isn't That Special...

After they voted for the stimulus. After they voted for and rammed ObamaCare down our throats. After they called us Nazi's and Racists. After they refused to listen to "We the People"...

Now they want their INDEPENDENCE from Obama, Reid and Pelosi!
Democrats from a number of states, including Texas, Ohio and North Carolina, are running away from Pelosi in a harsh political climate. Distancing one's self from the speaker is nothing new for many Democrats, including Edwards, but the number of incumbents and the volume of their criticism of the party House leader is larger than it has been in past election cycles - and the volume of their criticism is louder

Well, good luck with that
