Well, There They Go Again

You won’t hear about it in the lamestream media, but Nanny Pelosi and the Jackson boys a few months ago demonstrated what Chicago values are all about: they forced state agency employees to attend their rally – at taxpayers’ expense.

Podcast: I Spy Minute – Obamacare’s “Transparency” Hits Home

We all know Nancy Pelosi’s pledge to “clean up the swamp” and have the most open and transparent government in histoy was an epic fail–especially when it came to Obamacare.

Podcast: I Spy Minute – Obamacare’s “Transparency” Hits Home

It’s amazing what passes for “transparency” these days.

  • Hirst could be the tipping point for state’s endangered rural Democrats June 22, 2017
    For all the enthusiasm I hear from my party about saving endangered species, I wish there was a little more sympathy for the most endangered creature of all – the Democrat who represents a rural district. There aren’t many of us left, and the way things are going this year, our line may die out […]
  • Budget stalemate puts state’s financial reputation at risk June 21, 2017
    It takes a lot of time and dedication to build a good reputation but it takes only one bad choice to destroy it in an instant. As state treasurer, I carry this lesson with me every day as I work with other state officials and dedicated treasury staff to manage our state’s finances in a […]

    The Federal Highway Administration has just released urban highway statistics for 2015, including the miles of roads and daily vehicle miles of driving by road type and “selected characteristics” for each urban area, including population, land area, freeway lane miles, and similar information.

  • The Transit Apocalypse June 22, 2017
    With declining ridership, growing costs, and increasing competition, the nation’s transit industry is on the verge of complete collapse. The trends leading to this collapse appear to be permanent, yet transit officials across the country are pretending they are only temporary. Instead of preparing for the collapse, they are simply seeking more subsidies. The Antiplanner […]
  • Response to Congestion Report June 21, 2017
    Two weeks ago, the Center of the American Experiment published a report by the Antiplanner showing that traffic congestion in Minneapolis-St. Paul was the deliberate result of the region’s Metropolitan Council’s plans to increase congestion in order to get more people to ride transit, walk, or bicycle. The Antiplanner quoted Met Council documents saying that […]
