    "Another presidential candidate had an energy proposal back in 2008 as well. Former Senator Rick Santorum’s ideas, however, went an entirely different direction. Rather than increasing production, his solution was to “reduce US oil appetite” in an article he wrote, titled, “Reducing U.S. oil appetite This is one cause that could be helped by smart mandates and taxing“

    4 months to the California Primary, but fresh after caucus wins in Colorado and Minnesota and in Missouri's non-binding primary, Rick Santorum draws to within a whisker of nominal frontrunner Mitt Romney, 33% for Romney, 31% for Santorum, effectively even, according to a SurveyUSA poll conducted for KABC-TV Los Angeles, KPIX-TV San Francisco, KGTV-TV San Diego and KFSN-TV Fresno. Santorum leads Romney among seniors, among evangelicals, among pro-life voters, among Tea Party members, among those who say they are "very conservative," and in the Central Valley region of California.

    Rick Santorum's taken a large lead in Michigan's upcoming Republican primary. He's at 39% to 24% for Mitt Romney, 12% for Ron Paul, and 11% for Newt Gingrich. Santorum's rise is attributable to two major factors: his own personal popularity (a stellar 67/23 favorability) and GOP voters increasingly souring on Gingrich. Santorum's becoming something closer and closer to a consensus conservative candidate as Gingrich bleeds support. Santorum's winning an outright majority of the Tea Party vote with 53% to 22% for Romney and 10% for Gingrich. He comes close to one with Evangelicals as well at 48% to 20% for...

    The media is spread alot of different info on this, here is the question, I keep getting this line, which doesn't sound right. That the previous RAT governor, actually left a surplus, or was projecting surplusses up until 2014, and that the (obviousley evil kitten drowning puppy killing) Republican, gave tax breaks to out of state companies like wal-mart thus creating the budget deficit..... This garbage, is obviously being passed in the mainstream media, and keeps getting repeated, also that the payroll costs, or union costs to Wisconson make up a small meager part of the budget, and that its...
  • Newly elected Republicans in state capitols launching strongest challenge to unions in decades

    Republicans who swept into power in state capitols this year with promises to cut spending and bolster the business climate now usher in a new era of labor relations that could result in the largest reduction of power in decades for public employee unions. The question GOP governors and lawmakers are now facing is exactly how far they can go without possibly alienating voters they won over in the midterm elections last fall. In Wisconsin, Republican Gov. Scott Walker is going for it all — the elimination of collective bargaining rights for public employees plus sharp increases in their health...

    <p>WASHINGTON - A federal judge Friday ruled against the Department of Homeland Security in a labor dispute over proposed workplace rules that would reduce the power of labor unions at the department, which has 160,000 employees.</p> <p>U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer said the department's proposal falls short because it leaves open avenues to unilaterally disavow lawful contracts. One provision embraced by DHS, the judge noted, says that homeland security managers may "take whatever other actions may be necessary to carry out the department's mission."</p>

    Labor Fight Hinders Security Bill By CURT ANDERSON The Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate was unable Tuesday to break the labor rights stalemate over legislation creating a Homeland Security Department, lengthening the odds that Congress will reach compromise before the November elections. An attempt by Democratic leaders to bring debate to a close failed by 15 votes get the 60 necessary to prevail. Although talks were continuing, the likelihood of a deal was growing dimmer by the hour as lawmakers try to wrap up business by Oct. 11 for the fall campaigns. ``It's going to require a lot...
