Surprised? Transportation Empowerment Act Was Ronald Reagan’s Idea—In 1967!

Original Post: Surprised? Transportation Empowerment Act Was Ronald Reagan’s Idea—In 1967!.

Last week I blogged that Ronald Reagan would love the Transportation Empowerment Act (TEA). I included audio of Reagan talking to Bill Buckley on Firing Line about the burden on states from onerous federal taxes and grants. Forgive me, but that was sort of a tease.

What Francis Slay Won’t Tell You About Missouri Roads—VIDEO

Original Post: What Francis Slay Won’t Tell You About Missouri Roads—VIDEO.

Proponents of Amendment 7 are telling a lot of lies. (I’m looking at you, St. Louis Business Journal.) The biggest lie involves the quality of Missouri’s roads and bridges. While Mayor Slay and the St. Louis Business Journal tell you Missouri’s roads are “crumbling,” two independent studies say the opposite. In fact, Missouri has some…

Original Post: How Missouri Republicans Made Jay Nixon Look Like a Statesman.

You know how reckless and tone-deaf Obama is about Army deserters? Missouri’s House and Senate Republican leaders are just as clueless and irresponsible about money. Yes, I said it: the Missouri Republican legislature is about as conservative and principled as Susan Rice on a Sunday talk show. By going on a votes-for-cash spending spree on…
