Math: More Accountants Headed to Congress

Let's talk of Republican stupidity. Stuart Varney of FoxNews, is a prototypical Republican toady ,who said the BP dividend receivers had nothing to do with the ownership of BP. Stuart, the dividend receivers are the OWNERS of the company. The owners of the company choose the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors oversee the company. The Board of Directors choose the Chief Executive Officer. The Chief Executive Officer oversees and runs the company. BP stockholders and dividend receivers are the ONLY people who are ultimately responsible of BP malfeasance. Dang, people who swallow Republican party talking points are just plain stupid. What is so wrong to understand about that?

Although last week's election seemed like the end of common sense when it comes to fiscal policy, there is a silver lining. More certified public accountants are headed to Congress and the ones who were already there, are staying.

All eight CPAs currently in the House won re-election, according to the Journal of Accountancy, including John Campbell, R-Calif., Mike Conaway, R-Texas, Bill Flores, R-Texas, Lynn Jenkins, R-Kan., Steven Palazzo, R-Miss., Collin Peterson, D-Minn., James Renacci, R-Ohio, and Brad Sherman, D-Calif. Several of them won re-election after fierce contests in recently redrawn congressional districts.
