Sen. Brown blasts GOP plan

Obamacare is one of the the reasons why employers are not hiring. Repealing it would go a long way toward creating jobs.

Income disparity is getting worse

This is an obvious leftist propaganda the rest of the story.

The top 1 percent of taxpayers paid 33.7 percent of all individual income taxes in 2002. This group of taxpayers has paid more than 30 percent of individual income taxes since 1995. Moreover, since 1990 this group’s tax share has grown faster than their income share.

Taxpayers who rank in the top 50 percent of taxpayers by income pay virtually all individual income taxes. In all years since 1990, taxpayers in this group have paid over 94 percent of all individual income taxes. In 2000, 2001, and 2002, this group paid over 96 percent of the total.

Raise debt ceiling to restore prosperity

This idiot completely ignores the impact of the debt. China is about to stop lending interest rates will increase as a result and what's even worse and the Fed prints money inflation will increase. Increase in taxes always reduces jobs because of the higher burden. We are beginning to feel the effects of the debt already .... another stimulus would only create more government jobs which ultimately becomes another drag on the economy. The last stimulus "created or saved" GOVERNMENT jobs which will be lost when the money runs out...either that or stand by for huge tax increases.

Americans distrust those who govern

Holy Smokes ... two editorials in a row espousing the Constitution and common sense

Distractions are key to political magic

Another of the few editorials that speak the truth. Is this a new face for the Vindy????

Dems want Americans to remain dependent

This editorial ought to be considered "headline news" and posted/printed on the front page.

U.S. needs real political reform

Let's see: the proposed changes include:
1. government mandated speech, as opposed to free speech (mandated debate)
2. disallowing an assembly of citizens to nominate their own candidates (elimination of primaries)
3. denying less populous states the ability to make a difference in presidential elections. (disenfranchisement)
4.denying free speech to an entire assembly of citizens (stockholders as corporation)
Lotsa luck on amending the Constitution to mandate a progressive, totalitarian agenda.
Take a look at Venezuela .... much of what is suggested has already been implemented.
The founders of this country did not trust government and wisely wrote in safeguards that attempt to concentrate power.
Every single "reform" goes directly to concentrating political power.
