Mike's Blog Round Up
September 12, 2015

AmericaBlog: California takes next step towards approving automatic voter registration.

Douglas Elmendorf: What House Republicans get right—and very wrong—about “dynamic scoring.”

Angry Bear: Jeb Bush’s tax plan is an example of the latter.

Political Wire: Former Romney aides are united in trying to stop Trump.

Speaking of which, your quotes of the day:
“You know, I don't agree with all the people who support me and my guess is they don't all agree with everything I believe in. But I need to get 50.1% or more and I'm appreciative to have the help of a lot of good people.” (Mitt Romney, on being endorsed by Birther Donald Trump, May 2012)
“Now I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born. Ann was born in Henry Ford Hospital. I was born at Harper Hospital. No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate, they know that this is the place that we were born and raised.” (Mitt Romney, speaking to voters in Michigan, August 2012)
