Democrat Go for Washington INCOME Tax in Gut n Stuff Move. Debate at 4:30. Listen Here.

H/T to Orbusmax. Here’s the story at Evergreen Freedom Foundation’s blog. Here’s the stream where you can hear debate. Republican Senators have been left out of the loop; won’t get a chance to see bill till it hits floor and debate starts. Senator Don Benton on to talk about it at 5:20.

Of course, it will take a giant new bureaucracy to impose, administer and enforce the creation of an income tax. The original income tax bill fiscal note estimates the Department of Revenue would need to add approximately 500 new employees to the state payroll, at a cost of more than $50 million a year.

Obama To Appear On ‘America’s Most Wanted’

Sorry, not as a wanted criminal, though.

John Walsh, host of the program, will interview Obama for an “appearance Saturday on Fox’s ‘America’s Most Wanted,’ helping to celebrate the broadcast of its 1,000th episode.”

Obama will “discuss the show’s impact in its 22 years as well as his administration’s anti-crime initiatives,” unless you are a New Black Panther who stands outside of voting places with night stick in hand or ACORN.

Fox News

This must go along with an unnamed top White House adviser who early in the administration stated, “We’ve got to get him out of that White House.”

17 Year Old Running for 18th District in SW Washington

He’s a conservative and I like him a lot. Anthony Bittner says,

“As the son of a small business owner I have experienced first hand the oppressiveness and unfair burden the goverment forced upon hard working families. Myself, and those of my generation, have been helpless to do anything about the wreckless [sic] behavior of tax-and-spend elected officials.” 

He’s 17. There’s hope for Washington now. Oh, and here’s his myspace address: www.myspace.com/bittner18th.

Brian Baird May Decide to Change His "NO" Vote on Health Care to "YES"

Baird is among several Democrats who voted no or are leaving office and have nothing to lose by voting “Yes.”

“Whatever it takes to get health care done” said Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. Asked what Obama wants done in that period, Gibbs said: “the whole thing getting done.” 

One story going around is that one such congressman got a federal judgeship for his brother. Baird needs to tell the Democrats is his vote is not for sale. Call him 202-225-3536
