Get Ready For Less Money In Your Paycheck

Congressional leaders are patting themselves on the back Wednesday after finally passing a bill dealing with the fiscal cliff. The bill prevented most tax hikes for middle-class taxpayers, but that doesn’t mean Uncle Sam won’t be taking more out of your paycheck.

Opinion: Romney Clearly Won The Debate – Again

The debate results are much less lopsided than the first debate, but Obama’s failed promises of the past four years which were clearly expressed by Romney dictate that Obama couldn’t win the debate. Romney won again.

Opinion: Joe Biden Schooled Paul Ryan With Facts And Substance

Mitt Romney’s apprentice salesman stepped on the stage last night and delivered his talking points, but little more. Throughout the night, Joe Biden delivered lesson after lesson to the ambitious young Congressman from Wisconsin.

Opinion: Ryan-Biden Vice Presidential Debate Necessarily Spirited

Both candidates did what they had set out to do. Biden reached out to his base, and Ryan spoke to those who don’t like the direction the country is headed. Republicans are likely not happy that Ryan didn’t deliver the knock-out debate Mitt Romney did a week ago while Democrats are, as previously stated, ecstatic Biden didn’t have a bad night.

Opinion: In A Cautious Debate Obama Gets The Points He Needed

Like Reagan’s cautious approach to the debates in 1984, Obama knows he is the president. Obama was the cautious champ, picking his moments and more concerned with overplaying his hand than winning every point in the first meeting.

Opinion: Unlike Obama, Romney Has A Plan To Save Social Security

Unlike Obama, Mitt Romney has been talking about his plan to save Social Security on the campaign trail in the recent past. Though it is getting little to no coverage in the national press, it should be getting the positive “buzz” it deserves.

Opinion: Despite Obama Attacks Romney Will Win The Senior Vote

Obama has been moving the needle with seniors using distorted arguments about Social Security and Medicare. Fortunately for GOP presidential challenger Mitt Romney, seniors’ top concern is the economy’s struggles under Obama and seniors have overwhelming voted Republican in the last two presidential elections.

Opinion: Republicans Endorse Todd Akin As Senate Chances Slip Away

After Mitt Romney’s 47% don’t pay taxes remark, Conservative columnist Peggy Noonan dubbed the Romney campaign a “rolling calamity” for all its problems and continuing self-inflicted wounds. At this point, she might have to extend that label to Republican efforts to take the majority in the Senate as they flounder and flip flop.
