Driehaus’s Congressional Web site live

Hamilton County GOP: Democrat(ic) Money Burn: Obama Style?

It seems current Hamilton County Republican Party Chairman and former Hamilton County Judge Alex M. Triantafilou has a short memory these days: The current discussion in Washington to spend over $800 billion that we borrow from China ought to scare the hell out of every American.
