Grover Norquist was on CNBC’s Squawk Box this morning. Grover discussed the debt ceiling, the CR, and Obamacare.

4-Traders picked up Tom Fletcher's, Federal Affairs associate, blog post entitled “British Prime Minister: Let’s get Fracking”:

“Facing increased energy costs, British Prime Minister David Cameron wants his country to get off the sidelines and take part in the shale gas revolution. In a recent Op-ed for the Daily Telegraph Cameron sets out the case for Great Britain to embark on a policy that will lower energy bills and deliver prosperity.”

Edward Murphy of the Portland Press Herald wrote an article entitled “Polystyrene foam ban in Portland: Council may vote.” This is an issue Cost of Government Center has been fighting against:

“Gov. Paul LePage wrote the council this summer to oppose the ban as "European-style" policy and a "nanny state" approach. His letter was signed by Maine hospitality industry groups and the Cost of Government Center, a group affiliated with the anti-tax Americans for Tax Reform group, headed by Grover Norquist.”
