Barack Obama is obviously not the only member of our government-spending machine that is up for reelection in 2012. Every House seat is up for grabs every two years, but I haven’t heard much about the Senators whose jobs are in jeopardy so I took the liberty of looking it up.

Thirty-three Senators are up for reelection or have decided to retire. As of today, in fact, Democratic Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska announced he would be retiring, topping the list so far of seven Democratic Senators lining up to retire.

There are twenty-one Democrats, two Independents, and ten Republicans up for reelection or retirement. Those are some good numbers for anyone interested in the possibility, albeit a slim one (this is Washington D.C. we are talking about), of lowering our national debt and empowering the private sector, among many other things. Here they are.
