  • Sen. Tom Coburn explains why he voted against the debt deal (answer in the third paragraph). Also like this parting shot: "The real debt crisis is not a debate that has been imposed on Washington by Tea Party activists. It is a crisis Washington has imposed on the American people through laziness, incompetence, dishonesty and political expediency."
  • Richard Epstein explains the problem with tax expenditures. I really don't get why so many on the right view efforts to remove these as simply tax increases.
