The moment Rep. Paul Ryan became Mitt Romney's running mate, high-profile Democrats and progressives joined in a unified public chorus insisting that Mr. Ryan and his policies are extreme in nature, and oh, woe to the Republican Party for embracing him.
Rep. Mike R. Pompeo was elected in 2010 by the 4th Congressional District of Kansas. A native of Wichita and graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, he patrolled the Iron Curtain as an Army officer before the Berlin Wall came down in 1989.
When Rep. Mike Rogers publicly suggested last week that Congress reconsider its ban on pork-barrel spending, the Alabama Republican probably didn't know what he was stepping into.
Proposed bipartisan legislation that would stop Congress from getting paid if they fail to pass a budget on time is winning fans on and off Capitol Hill.
The theme of this year's election season is simple: Stop the spending now. The federal government needs to stop adding to its budget and stop funding new programs. Current expenditures should be rolled back. That's the message sweeping America's heartland.
