Another modest proposal: Stop the federal corn subsidies that have created a glut of corn products in our food supply. (Hello corn syrup!) Use the money to support small farms, instead. Lots of small farms = greater food security, better quality food and less dependency of fossil fuel for production.
Less corn = less obesity = lower costs for health care.
See Michael Pollan's Ominvore's Dilemma for details.

IF you were to believe her Huckabee story, wouldn't it make you question her fiscal responsibility to hear her say that she'll drop $500 for a candidate she doesn't know anything about?
(I hope this lady stays far, far away from any kind of public budget decisions... )

The Washington Policy Center's documents are another example of reckless, irresponsible, childish thinking about real problems. They advocate questioning over preparation and hope over action.
Constantine has every right to call them out for their refusal to incorporate actual science into their conclusions.
