"The new regulations require individuals and groups spending on races..." So ANY person or group wishing to get involved in the political process must register with the state, and are subject to restraint by same. Given recent SCOTUS rulings on campaign finance, can't see how this could possibly pass judicial review.

"And people in Washington are wondering what they are going to do when they eventually run out of other people’s money." No, they won't. Which is the crux of the problem: to most of the political class, it is THEIR money. The society is the source of all wealth, and they represent the society (in some not-so-extreme cases, they believe society proceeds from them). It's how they can delude themselves into believing that government spending is "investment". Rather, they will wonder, "Why aren't we getting more money back?"

Congress will vote for an overhaul of the tax code to bring about either of those- IF it means they get to keep their cushy position for an extra term or three (which is another fight altogether, for another time).

Presume you mean the Fair Tax. Am reasonably certain the prebate is a gimmick to sell the plan to those LIV who believe they are being given something when they get their annual refund check from the IRS. The chief long term benefit of the plan is it will show the public EXACTLY how much of their money goes to the Federal government, it being printed on their sales receipts. 3 or 4 generations of that, and the prebate can likely be exchanged for a reduction in the tax rate in the name of efficiency.
One MAJOR difference. Virtually nobody outside of Montana and sites like this one will hear word one about this dingbat. The media jumped on one phenomenally stupid mis-step by an otherwise respectable candidate and used it to inaccurately defame the entire right side of the political spectrum. They will do the exact opposite with Curtis's many, many toe chompers.
Are you kidding? They aren't even teaching the country's history.
What about the brain dead? Doesn't the left also deserve SOME consideration?
The key word being "choice", implying also the choice to NOT join.
Then by what right does government exercise first (and ever larger) claim on the fruit of labor from those who produce it? Lincoln at least understood the linkage, though the demarcation has long been somewhat exaggerated. The false dichotomy between labor and capital is a key component of Marxist economics.
Harry Reid's skull is too thick to explode. Otherwise, the total vacuum contained therein would have led to implosion at least a dozen years ago.
