“The government is supposed to provide order and structure. It is the agency of law in a just and reasoned society. The shameful failure of the Pelosi Congress to produce a budget is an example of lawlessness — a failure of fiscal duty no different from various accounting frauds that would put corporate CEOs behind bars.

The current process of limitless deficits and make-it-up-as-we-go spending resolutions makes an utter mockery of this republican ideal. … Government through continuing resolution is a fraud. Politicians who claim the wisdom to manage our lives, with piles of law carved into stone, are instead scribbling their judgments on scratch paper with pencils. It’s time to hear exactly what they intend to do, and exactly how much it’s going to cost us, so we can pass judgment on them.”

– J. A. Stormer Author

“Congress is now preparing to pass yet another jobs bill. You know how to create more jobs in this country? Fire the people that wrote the first jobs bill. That obviously didn’t work.”

– Jay Leno
