Be in the know: Today's political bullet points

Every day we ask influential politicos to send us their top three bullet points that are driving the day's conversation inside and outside Washington.

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:

– If we can't make cuts to green jobs, high speed rail, Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare or anything else, what will Mr. Obama cut from the budget?

–'t there a war going on in Libya? How much money are we spending there?

– Syrian forces continue to gun down civilians and more and more evidence is that Iran is helping. Will Barack Obama go there? If not, are Syrians less worthwhile than Libyans? Is anybody even paying attention anymore? Blogger/Founder Jane Hamsher:

    Hello,about economic impacts cause by military operations in Libya and that made U.S. & U.K. cut budgets in a lots of stuffs.
    Why don't they just use Gaddafi's assets outside Libya for military operations in Libya???
    Because if do that,both U.S. & U.K. can avoid economic impacts ,and not nescesary to cut budgets and can still keep U.S. & U.K. people happy by not cut some budgets but use Gaddafi's assets outside Libya they freezed (aand use them into credit for loan from some banks ,I don't know.) & offcourse ,by doing that,they can continue military operations in Libya to maintain No fly zones,a lot of U.N. stuffs.
    And Libya people will get some help and get even too,if US. & U.K. use Gaddfai's pocket money into funds for humanitarian operations,no fly zones,a lot of U..N. stuffs,am I correct???
    Just opinions,if somebody disagree,that's ok.
