JOHN STOSSEL The political class predicted "disaster" if Congress didn't raise its debt limit. I think that was a scam to get more money. See, the poor politicians don't have enough, and they need to borrow more. We taxpayers are cheap. This year we'll give them only $2.2 trillion. They want to spend $3.8 trillion... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES The class warriors in Congress won't rest until everything is taxed multiple times. The idea that online retailers aren't collecting tribute for states in which they have no physical presence galls Sen. Richard J. Durbin, Illinois Democrat, and Rep. John Conyers, Michigan Democrat.

RICHARD VIGUERIE The deal to raise the debt ceiling is the death of reality in Washington, D.C. Everyone involved in this deal knows that it does not solve the real crisis that the American people want solved -- the unsustainable spending, deficits and debt that has created the need to raise the debt ceiling.
