Why are Democrats so excited about the new, 2000 page, financial reform bill? “It’s a great moment.

What the Scott?

Unions are the most destructive force in the country today.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev) slipped an amendment into the Senate Supplemental appropriations bill that will force states to collectively […]


Before Scott Brown got elected to “The People’s Seat,” he was a state senator from Wrentham. The special election to fill that seat was held yesterday, and Democrats fought hard to take it.

What’s Massachusetts Treasurer Tim Cahill doing in Scott Brown’s sweater? And his kitchen? Four years ago he was an early supporter of leftist Democrat Deval Patrick.

Facing Scott

18Apr10

Scott Brown was on Face the Nation today, standing his ground effectively on the Financial Reform Bill, telling the president that “We Can Do Better.” Bob: Can you support the pending financial reform bill?

Dog Wagging
