Voter opposition to Obama $1.2 trillion spending plan grows

More bad news for the Obama administration.  Support for his $1.2 trillion government expansion plan continues to plummet, with a plurality of voters now opposing it.

Even worse for Obama, half of all voters now say his plan will do more to hurt the economy than help it and Americans are more worried the government will do too much than do too little.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds only 37 percent of voters still support the plan.  A whopping 43 percent oppose the Obama plan.  Twenty percent are not sure.

Dems plan $246 million tax break for Hollywood pals, tax hikes for others

President Barack Obama may criticize performance bonuses for some as "shameful," but he has no shame about a quarter-billion dollar tax break for his most loyal supporters, who just announced record profits.

Your Monday Message

Dear friend,

2009 may be a “down year” for Republicans and Democrats looking ahead to congressional and gubernatorial races in 2010, but Libertarians are on the move.

Your Libertarian Party is hard at work fighting for open elections in West Virginia and Oklahoma, recruiting candidates for state races in New Jersey and Virginia and looking to fill an open congressional seat in New York.

And that’s just this week!

Mulshine: Republicans now trying to sound like Libertarians

Syndicated columnist Paul Mulshine of the Newark Star-Ledger expresses his surprise today over reports the Republican Party has discovered fiscal conservatism again.

As Mulshine points out, the Libertarian Party and its 2008 presidential nominee, former congressman Bob Barr, opposed taxpayer-funded bailouts and explosive government growth back when the GOP was espousing it as bedrock principle.
