Submission + - Senate Democrats Sequester Replacement Bill Adds Billions to Deficit (yahoo.com)

RoccamOccam writes: White House-backed legislation in the Senate to replace $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts would raise the deficit through the end of the budget year by tens of billions of dollars, officials said late Wednesday as the two parties maneuvered for public support on economic issues.

So, as pointed out on townhall.com, 'their "deficit reduction" plan entails defense cuts, new tax hikes, and adding to the deficit. No wonder these guys have avoided committing a budget to paper for the last four years.'

Submission + - Illegal online registration by Obama campaign in NC (examiner.com)

RoccamOccam writes: North Carolina's Civitas Institute has revealed that the North Carolina State Board of Elections and the Obama campaign conspired to register at least 11,000 people via the internet in violation of state law.

The technology from Allpoint Voter Services uses remote-control pens to transmit “signatures” over the Internet, according to techpresident.com[iii]. After entering voter information in an online form, the citizen “signs” it with a stylus or a finger. The Allpoint technology records the signature and then transmits it to one of two autopens – one in California, the other in Nevada. One of the pens transcribes the signature on to a paper voter registration form. Allpoint then mails the documents to local election boards.
