This Isn't the Petition Response You're Looking For | We the People: Your Voice in Our Government 01/12/2013

This Isn't the Petition Response You're Looking For | We the People: Your Voice in Our Government

Official White House response to the online petition that received 35,000 signatures advocating that the government begin construction of the "Death Star" (from Star Wars)

This Isn't the Petition Response You're Looking For | We the People: Your Voice in Our Government The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn't on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:

'Fiscal cliff' deal restores mass-transit subsidy 01/11/2013

'Fiscal cliff' deal restores mass-transit subsidy

Good example of a "rider"-- a provision added to a bill that has little or no relevance to the original bill. Some might even say this is "pork barrel spending"-- a spending provision that benefits only a small constituency, general perceived as wasteful

'Fiscal cliff' deal restores mass-transit subsidy The bill to avert the "fiscal cliff" reinstates parity between the parking and mass-transit subsidies. The mass-transit subsidy was reduced in 2011 to $125 even as a similar subsidy for parking benefits was increased to $240 a month.

CNN 2012 Electoral Map -- Elections & Politics from CNN.com

Here is my electoral college prediction... There's still a number of states that could either way (including Virginia), but since I made all of you predict, I figured I should do the same... I predict Romney will win the popular vote and Obama will win the electoral vote 282 to 256.

CNN 2012 Electoral Map -- Elections & Politics from CNN.com The CNN Electoral Map is CNN's best estimate of the key states that will likely decide the 2012 presidential election. The map will be updated as the campaign progresses. Use the map to predict which candidate will win each state and see who reaches 270 electoral votes first.
