Ticket to Ride

The Republican debates are interesting to watch, but I like to make my decisions based on fact, not banter.  Don't count Gov. Romney out just because he has not shown his tax return.  And besides, he may pay less on his income that some people would like, but he does pay.  How many Americans pay no taxes at all?  It is not the amount of money one pays, it is the whole tax code that needs to be overhauled and simplified.  Is not Obama and his family now very wealthy?  Now it is the government that spends more than it collects and also needs to down size.  No need to raise taxes when so much waste is ready to be cut. God helps those who help themselves, janitors included.  

Limousine liberals? Number of government-owned limos has soared under Obama

Limousines, the very symbol of wealth and excess, are usually the domain of corporate executives and the rich. But the number of limos owned by Uncle Sam increased by 73 percent during the first two years of the Obama administration, according to an analysis of records by iWatch News.
Most of the increase was recorded in Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
Obama administration officials said most of the increase reflects an enhanced effort to protect diplomats and other government officials in a dangerous world. But a watchdog group says the abundance of limos sends the wrong message in the midst of a budget crisis. The increase in limos comes to light on the heels of an executive order from President Obama last week that charges agencies to increase the fuel efficiency of their fleets.
On that note, take a look at how many limos were in the caravan last night at the birthday bash for the first lady in Washington DC
