Republican Party Reform?

I can't speak for Bear or J-Red, but Lowdogg is ready to endorse a candidate for the House Majority Leader in Washington- John Shadegg.

Rep. Shadegg has written an excellent editorial in today's Wall Street Journal that highlights my major concerns with the Republican Party in Washington:
  • Dramatic increases in spending, demonstrated by the increase in legislative earmarks from 1,439 in 1995 to nearly 14,000 today.
  • Abandonment of Balanced Budget principles. I understand fighting wars cost money, but Congress should at least pretend to be upset by their growing expenditures.
  • Abandonment of the "Reform Party" mantle.

I am hoping for the end of DeLay-era laxness in the Republican Party. Good luck to Rep. Shadegg.
