The political landscape has been relatively quiet this week. But, typical of Presidential election years, President Obama did publish a wish list with the title of “budget”. Maine declared former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney the victor in that state’s caucuses, leading supporters of Representative Ron Paul (R-Lake Jackson, TX) to cry foul. And, proving love is really in the air on Valentine’s Day, both parties actually agreed on something in the House…to extend unemployment benefits, a payroll tax cut, and yet another “temporary” patch to the formula used by Medicare to pay doctors.
Next week, after the Presidents’ Day holiday, the Supreme Court will be back in session again; and the Fantastic Four Republicans will debate in Mesa, Arizona.
Today, though, it’s Friday. And that means you’re in charge of the subjets du jour.
