Inside the Beltway
Question of the Day

“Since I underwrite the cost myself, the ‘Tea Bags’ are extremely limited edition. I give them to special people — like Gov. Sarah Palin. I plan to have more made and will give them out, free of course, at the 9/12 Tea Party rally in Washington,” Mrs. Curzon continues.

This despite the fact that Democrats have completely failed to address Americans’ worries about the economy, unemployment, reckless spending, skyrocketing debt, job-killing tax hikes, rising health care costs, endless bailouts, and Washington’s obstruction of private sector success,” says the Republican Study Committee.
“While Vice President Biden and other Democrats seem to think that ‘the heavy lifting is over,’ all the aforementioned issues remain major concerns for the public. Why? Because the heavy lifting is not actually over. Democrats just dropped the ball.”
