Trillion Dollar Fraudsters -- latest GOP budgets

Latest "budgets" from House and Senate GOP break new ground. Each contains not one but two trillion-dollar magic asterisks: one on spending, one on revenue.

And that’s actually an understatement -- If either budget were to become law, the US would be several trillion dollars deeper in debt within just the first decade.

You might be tempted to shrug this off, since these budgets will not, in fact, become law. Or you might say that this is what all politicians do. But it isn’t. The modern G.O.P.’s raw fiscal dishonesty is something new in American politics. And that’s telling us something important about what has happened to half of our political spectrum.

A new exposé in The Nation magazine reveals that much of the lobbying money spent on shaping policy in Washington is going unreported. For the third straight year, the official amount spent by lobbyists has declined, and the number of registered lobbyists is the lowest its been in more than a decade. But these numbers are misleading, says reporter Lee Fang, author of the "The Shadow Lobbying Complex: On paper, influence peddling has declined. In reality, it has gone underground."
