Remember when Ronald Reagan called for reduction of our nuclear arms? Well Barack Obama and Richard Lugar (senator from my state) happen to agree. Unfortunately, since that START treaty that Lugar supported was signed by Barack Obama, he now has a tea party challenger in the primaries next year.
For...the...START...treaty. That's the reason being cited. That same one that got 2/3s of the votes in the Senate and was supported by secretaries of state from several Republican administrations. Yeah, that's the one. But Obama liked it, so Lugar's got a tea party challenger.
That's not for fiscal reasons at all, and that's just one example that's close to home for me.
