The Heritage Foundation examines the President's budget.  His budget was supposed to be sent to Congress by February 4, the House passed its budget on March 29, the Senate passed a budget March 23 (the first one in four years), but he finally sent his proposal 65 days late and after both Houses passed one.  What arrogance!  And what arrogance is in his budget, the same spending, spending and more spending. 
I wonder if the "In Performance at the White House" has its own line item. Human Events describes how the UK Daily Mail sums it up as a mixture of “bad math, phantom revenues, imagined spending cuts, and a middle-class tax hike.”  These College Republicans understand more about their future than the President does. 

It's pretty revealing when one of its major supporters says Obamacare is beyond  comprehension.

Sheldon Silver says "I don't feel any responsibility" and that Mr. Speaker is a good part of the problem!

The NY Daily News praises Governor Cuomo for laying down the law on public corruption.  Where is he laying down the law?  What has Governor Cuomo proposed that will change anything???  He is trying to sell his "Public Trust Act" as a vehicle to end corruption, but nothing that he is saying convinces me or Michael Goodwin.   The WSJ indicates that the pension would be stripped if convicted of public-corruption felonies, but only if they joined the system after the 2011 enactment of the state pension-reform bill.  Governor, offer a Constitutional Amendment to cover every elected official no matter when the came to office.

When did Governor Cuomo morph into Rahm Emanuel?

The NY Post editorial makes a great point, shrinking the size and scope of government will be a great beginning to end corruption, but alas we didn't hear that from Governor Cuomo. 

Speaking of pensions, this is a must read.  

Bonus Thomas Sowell article.

Wednesday's with Walter E. Williams.
