Opinion page editor Rick Holmes and other writers blog about national politics and issues. Holmes & Co. is a Blog for Independent Minds, a place for a free-flowing discussion of policy, news and opinion. This blog is the online cousin of the Opinion section of the MetroWest Daily News in Framingham, Mass. As such, our focus starts there and spreads to include Massachusetts, the nation and the world. Since successful blogs create communities of readers and writers, we hope the \x34& Co.\x34 will also come to include you.

Fresh from his hypocritical comment that he regretted that the fiscal cliff legislation didn’t address concerns about a broader plan for taxing and spending, Obama boarded Air Force One to head to his frolic in Hawaii. Let’s do the numbers. The flight is costing the tax payers $4,000,000. Obama just raised taxes on families making $50,000 by $1,000 per year. That means that 4000 families, more people than live in Brimfield, will now receive a bill which will pay for Obama’s junket. Last night, it was 7 degrees in Brimfield. It costs about $1000 to fill an oil tank this winter. So I hope the good people of Brimfield enjoy huddling in their blankets around a candle, enjoying the pictures of Obama toasting on the sand at their expense. I presume this fulfills the campaign promises. I will change your oil money into my vacation slush fund. Forward to Hawaii!
