Political moves, 2012 implications

Sarah Huckabee, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee’s daughter, was a fixture on the Iowa campaign trail in 2007 and she was with Huckabee when he returned to Iowa this past November for a book-signing tour.  Ms. Huckabee seemed to be the only “staff” who came to Iowa with her dad in July, 2008, when her dad gave the keynote at the Republican Party of Iowa’s state convention.  News today:  Sarah Huckabee is running a senate race in Arkansas.

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney will be coming to Iowa in late March to sign copies of his new book, No Apology: the Case for American Greatness.  Romney will also give a speech at Iowa State University on March 29 at 7 p.m.  Romney has also hired Matt Rhoades to run his PAC

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin visited the Daytona 500 this weekend.

  1. Does congress really wish to eliminate the country’s deficit? If they do, they should perhaps pass a bill that limits the amount a person can spend to get elected to an amount equal to what the job will pay is they are successful in their campaign. For instance, a congress person will receive $174,000. per year, so a 6 year salary would be $1,044,000, thus the total amount that could be spent to campaign for the position would be $1,044,000. Have all excess money raised by the supporters be immediately deposited into the general government fund to help reduce the deficit. Thus if $24,000,000. was raised, only $1,044.000. could be used to promote the candidate, and the balance of $23,056,000 would be immediately deposited to the federal government general fund to help reduce the deficit. If they aren’t serious about helping the government, they shouldn’t be running for the position.
