Limbaugh says Colbert replacing Letterman means ‘CBS has just declared war on the heartland of America’, which makes me think Rusty might be a pretty good satirist himself if there was any money in it for him.

Here’s a story about what is not the heartland of America — divorce, Beltway style.

$4 billion: Bogus tax refunds a growing problem http://m.apnews.com/ap/db_268744/contentdetail.htm?contentguid=eEp9faLt (from @AP)

For those really wanting Obamacare reform, this should be a red flag. Why? The healthcare.gov and exchanges require applicants to use their Social Security number to apply for health insurance. It is encouraged even if you are not applying for subsidy. Multiply that by numerous vendors involved in the application process, plus insurance companies, doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, etc. that may be required to use your SSN to verify exchange plan benefits. Suddenly the risk for identity theft increases dramatically.

A friend who volunteers to file tax returns for AARP says record year for IRS to advise “return already filed”…chance of Feds pursuing “petty theft” zero…..SS payment identity theft also rampant….SS disability a cottage industry….then we have have the fraudulant tax return credits….medicare fraud is north of $60 billion…..as long as government agencies are an easy mark and reluctant to pursue fraud or internal mismanagement outside very selectively, we can expect a bigger problem….

I get that Project 51 is so named because the desired outcome is a Senate majority, but I can’t help but think it invokes another famous “51″ and more than welcomes money from outside.

So I guess no one on here is going to discuss the 10-ton elephant in the room? If nothing else we are finding out how our state government works like a banana republic when a Governor is the nominal head of the party with a super-majority legislature.
