Stump The Senator

By asking a pertinent question, from Chris Wallace to Diane Feinstein.

Heh, watch her squirm.

He Won’t Stop Spending

from The Hill:

Obama wants $35 billion for teachers, first-responders first

Obama will implement the full-court press on the pieces of the jobs act as he embarks on another bus tour, this time hitting the critical battleground states of North Carolina and Virginia, two states Obama won in 2008 that are essential to his reelection strategy.
…….
With the full $447 billion jobs bill suffering defeat in the Senate, Obama and his aides are moving to a second phase, publicly pushing for passage of the bill piece by piece.

The first piece Obama wants is $35 billion in aid for states to prevent the laying off of or support increased hiring of teachers, police officers and fire fighters, Earnest said.

More Taken From Our Wallets

Utility grid updates and emission controls (infrastructure upgrades) are soon going to cause our monthly electric bills to climb as the power companies will undoubtedly pass the costs onto us. Thanks to government inadequacy in understanding the magnitude of the effort:

During the budget battle, Congress cut $500 million from the program to bring this year’s total to $4.7 billion, down from a high of $5.1 billion in 2010. For next year, the Obama administration requested only $2.6 billion, leaving states with roughly half the assistance they’ve had in the past. The White House rationale relies on the assumption that energy prices will decline, but regulatory filings have indicated the opposite trend is in store.

Looks like this is in addition to expected utility rate increases by 2014.

Obama Versus Dingy Harry

Maybe these two are at odds with each other?

The Obama campaign sent out an email today asking supporters to urge Congress to at least vote on the president’s jobs bill almost immediately after Democratic majority leader Harry Reid blocked a vote on the bill in the Senate.
