Bill Dolan’s April 28 article (“Lake County municipal officials turn to lenders for urban amenities”), is a classic example of “you can make numbers say whatever you want them to.”
Spring is a time of rejuvenation and fresh starts. And while spring cleaning closets, the garage and basement requires good old-fashioned work, new tools can help take the fuss out of sprucing up finances.
INDIANAPOLIS | A forced absorption of the Hammond Public Library by the Lake County library system was removed Wednesday from legislation advancing toward a final vote in the Indiana House.
This administration, the president and the Democratic Senate told us raising taxes on the rich would: 1. Prevent the fiscal cliff. 2. Help eliminate our yearly $1 trillion-plus deficit. 3. Bring down our over $16 trillion debt. With no spending cuts and no budget for more than four years we …
In 2006, Sen. Barack Obama said "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure." And he voted no on a debt limit increase.
How can you make sure that you keep your promise to take control of your finances and make your money work for you?
Have we really sunk that low as a society and culture that we can't even save ourselves from our own economic suicide?
I sit here in amazement about President Barack Obama talking about our nation's debt. He says that we as a nation have to pay our bills that are due.
The national financial situation needs to be addressed by a plan that is achievable. First, tax rates for the wealthy need to be increased. This is what the Democrats are pushing. Second, some social programs need to be reduced. This is what the Republicans are pushing.
In a Dec. 12 letter, a prevalent myth materialized: "Rich getting richer, poor getting poorer, all a gift from GOP policies like $10 trillion in debt when George W. Bush left office."
A sign on a van saying, "Unions means jobs" shows just how a lot of people's minds are in control of the government. The words are certainly true, except they leave out one important fact.

INDIANAPOLIS | Three months ago, well before the United States sailed over the fiscal cliff, U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-Merrillville, told The Times he expected Congress would "at best, kick the can down the road" on taxes and spending.
Two of the most commonly made and commonly broken New Year’s resolutions are saving money and paying off debt. These are promises we all seem to make to ourselves every year with every intention of seeing through. But somehow, we wind up in the same spot we were before.
Achieving your financial goals can sound like a daunting New Year’s resolution if you aren't organized when it comes to your money. But by planning ahead, you can more easily improve your financial situation.
Republicans clamber for spending cuts to solve the swollen debt. They focus on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. How quickly they forget the Cheney-Rumsfeld bogus multi-trillion-dollar Iraq war for the military fat cats. How quickly they forget Bush's trillion-dollar tax break to the r…
Obviously, Tom Pancheri is too informed to know that:
The Democrats and Barack Obama will cause the following in the next four years: Our national debt will exceed $20 trillion; agencies will further downgrade U.S. debt worthiness; raising the national debt limit multiple times; Democrats (party of no) refusing cuts to deficit spending and only…
Thanks to President Barack Obama and a Democrat Congress, our national debt has increased by over 50 percent. Unemployment stayed over 8 percent for more than 40 consecutive months. Our national credit rating has been downgraded. Our credibility has declined in many countries.
