The stage is set for the U.S. Senate race in Indiana. There was quite a bit of hoopla when the Democrats appointed Brad Ellsworth, and Republican candidate Dan Coats stated that “Hoosiers will hear two dramatically different views about the direction our country should be heading, and about the future of Indiana.”
Well, Hoosiers might hear two dramatically different views, but it’s not too likely that they’ll actually see much difference between the two. We’ve all heard the GOP complaining about the runaway spending under President Obama. Last week, they PRESENTED A PLAN to cut some of that spending. By about .017%. That saves about $1.00 out of each $5800.00 that is being spent.
I’m not sure that qualifies as dramatic.
Of course, there are some different views out there. Chris Edwards over at CATO, a libertarian think-tank, offered THIS IDEA for cutting federal spending by over 10%, just by eliminating 10 programs. For starters, anyway.
So yes, Hoosiers can hear two dramatically different views about the direction our country should be headed. One of those views will come from the Republicans and Democrats.
The other view will come from U.S. Senate candidate Rebecca Sink-Burris and the Libertarians.
