A few days have passed since my original post on the subject, and since then there are reports the emails from six more employees are missing. Let’s recap shall we?
The American people have to start somewhere. I’ve said over-and-0ver until I’m blue in the face; the DISEASE is the size and scope of the federal government and the unhealthy dependency states and local governments have when it comes to getting cash from said federal government. Some in Mississippi get it, but others like self-proclaimed liberal political science professor Marty Wiseman are totally confused.
An important update to yesterday’s post on the Lois Lerner email situation. The full letter sent to the chairman and ranking member of the Committee on Finance who requested documents and emails from the IRS concerning the application process for tax exempt organizations is now available. PLEASE read this post and share it with everyone … we need to take this as it is – another anecdote on how bad big government is – and move on.
The “Friday-at-5” IRS letter released by the House Ways and Means Committee indicated many of Lois Lerner’s emails between Jan. 2009 and April 2011 were lost due to a computer glitch. Of course, the lost emails were the ones sent and received from the White House, DOJ, FEC and many Democrats. Isn’t that convenient…
It’s amusing. In some warped, political way of thinking, being “fully transparent” and “involving the community” concerning bringing the New Britain Rock Cats to Hartford equals telling the community opening day at the new stadium will be April 7, 2016.
Yesterday, I posted about President Obama’s congressional-bypass to change up the student loan rules. My post was specific to the adjusted minimum payment which was reduced from 15 percent to 10 percent of discretionary income¹. There was an additional gift provided by the president yesterday, and nobody knows how much it will cost.
So says the first line of The Hartford Courant’s story this morning. Connecticut is talking about adding high-tech tolls to stretches of I-95 and I-84 in the state, but is the reasoning valid?
In 2010, Congress pass and President Obama signed the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act. Along with cutting off the private student loan market by removing subsidies, making loans pretty much the exclusive realm of the federal government, the legislation capped the repayments of new loans to 10 percent of the persons discretionary income. The previous cap was 15 percent.
We’ve got six soldiers who were in Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s unit. They were there the night he disappeared. They were there the morning the team found out he was missing. There were part of missions to go out and find him. And they are being discredited?
