No FEMA? No Problem On Fox News

By Brian

On Cashin’ In yesterday (10/1/11), the panel discussed FEMA finding extra money and thereby averting a government shutdown.

Forget Warren Buffett Or Economists! Bill O’Reilly Knows Better That Tax Increases For The Wealthy Are Not A Good Idea!

Bill O’Reilly is back from vacation and ready to get down to looking out for you again. It’s just a happy coincidence that looking out for you looks a lot like looking out for himself.
