I like to think that if Calvin Coolidge were around today, or if this particular award had been around back in the 1920s, the 30th president would have been a shoo-in as a recipient of the Fi$cy Award, intended to honor elected officials who are leading the way in promoting fiscal responsibility and government accountability. But I’m sure Sen. Kent Conrad (D-ND), Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and particularly Gov. Mitch Daniels (R-IN) are worthy first-time contemporary recipients. Make sure you check out the Fi$cy website!
And here’s Gov. Daniels’ acceptance speech… I think Coolidge would approve.
