Did O Neuter House GOP?

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Bloomberg Businessweek ran an interesting piece Wednesday, arguing that Republicans should happily embrace Tuesday’s fiscal cliff deal since “[i]t locks in virtually all the Bush-era income tax cuts, establishes a generous-to-the-wealthy inheritance tax, and maintains low capital gains and dividend taxes,” in addition to generating much less revenue for Washington’s spending addiction than the President […]

Emancipation Turns 150

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog It’s an auspicious day to celebrate the Emancipation Proclamation’s 150th Anniversary, Save Jerseyans. The late great Civil War historian Shelby Foote liked to argue that “the genius of American politics is compromise,” and that the Civil War came about through the nation’s failure to do what it had previously done best. After […]

Fiscal Cliff Detour

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog It’s a “deal” in the strictest sense of the word, Save Jerseyans, because there appears to be enough votes to get it through the House a little later today after the Senate adopted a fiscal cliff compromise package early New Year’s morning. There’s certainly enough crap in there (like huge […]

How Steep is Your Fiscal Cliff?

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog A brand new year is days away, Save Jerseyans, and thanks to our reckless President’s record spending and a pack of unherdable cats in the House, the fiscal cliff is now inevitable.

Santa Rally? Not Really!

Yesterday morning, Save Jerseyans, I awoke to dismal online deals and discounts at my favorite online retailer websites.  Primarily, I was hoping to find a deal on the Chloe handbag I’ve been coveting (not a justifiable full-priced purchase for a fiscally conservative blogger).  Unfortunately, neither Neiman Marcus nor Saks fulfilled my day-after-Christmas wish.  Stocks typically rise […]

Sympathy for the Boehner

Speaker John Boehner is getting a lot of heat from his Right at the moment, Save Jerseyans. And I’m going to catch some hell from many of you for saying what I’m about to say: I feel bad for Boehner. I really, truly do. Imagine for a moment that you’re a good family man, businessman, […]

Come January 1st, We’re ALL Going to Be Scrooged

I know that we have had a tough run as of late, Save Jerseyans.  And I know that we are also struggling to find our political center as a party.  But it never ceases to amaze me how the Democrats will continue to beat a dead horse until such time that it may actually resurrect.  […]

Obama’s Tax Hikes Won’t Balance the Budget (VIDEO)

President Obama’s fiscal cliff “compromise” is a non-starter, Save Jerseyans. A cheap political trick; even assuming a set a facts most favorable to the POTUS, his plan raises only a slim percentage of the revenues over the next decade required to avert a total fiscal disaster. Coupled with a complete failure to address entitlement reform, the […]

It’s Time to Slaughter a Few Sacred Cows

OK, sports fans. The clock is winding down and there are just days left before America is poised to fall calamitously over the so-called fiscal cliff.
