Potomac Fever:  some would define it as a determination to share in the power and prestige of the federal government.  Others might characterize it with words like obstinance, incorrigibility and simple pig-headedness.  Undoubtedly, Washington loves power.  But when it comes to admitting the error of its ways, ignorance is bliss…

214 Broken Political Promises Mean Tax Hikes
