  1. In other words, cut!

    Something many advertisers and subscribers already have in the works due to taxes and other “costs” taking effect at midnight as a result of the PPACA alone.

    Sadly, few journalists connect that with the fast approaching expiration of the Bush tax cuts, something the GOP tried to make permanent years ago – yet another fact that gets left out of media’s coverage too.

    Get ready.
