The House GOP Committee Chairmen Are Pathetic!

    Cross Posted from LLPH: Yesterday, LLPH released our scorecard for the 113th Congress 1st Session January-June 2013. We will be doing another scorecard for July-December 2013, but this first official scorecard provided a glimpse at the way members are performing.

    Cross Posted from LLPH: Here’s the Scorecard (more info below): 113th House-Senate Total OVERALL Scorecard An exciting 6 months have passed, and LLPH is now releasing our 113th Congress Scorecard for January-June 2013. But first, a review of the 6 months: LIFE: The House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 1797), a strong pro-life bill.

    Even Liberals Oppose Harry Reid, Dianne Feinstein, and Patrick Leahy’s Gun Control Bills!

    Several gun ban bills are expected to be debated in the Senate soon, but Senator Harry Reid may have to deal with opposition from moderates. Everyone knows that moderate Democrats (especially those up in 2014) are concerned about voting for this bill. But who would have thought that liberals oppose these gun control bills? The Daily Caller interviewed a leading official of the ACLU who | Read More »

    Are House Conservatives Losing their Fighting Spirit? CR Passes.

    Last year, articles were written about the fierce and strong conservatives who were unwilling to compromise their values for the satisfaction of the leadership. Conservatives like Tom Graves, Jim Jordan, Steve King, and others were herald as heroes  of our movement. That is why today was a shocking disappointment. The Continuing Resolution that passed today failed to defund Obamacare. It included wasteful spending for the Departments of Commerce, Judiciary, | Read More »

    Tomorrow: GOP House Will Vote To Pass Wasteful Continuing Resolution!

    No rules passed. No debate on rules. No amendments allowed. Tomorrow, the GOP House will likely vote to pass the Continuing Resolution of the Senate. House GOP leadership won’t even allow discussion in opposition to the bill. It will be interesting to see which Spineless Republicans vote to pass this wasteful continuing resolution (or if the GOP leadership will break the Hastart Rule AGAIN!) The | Read More »

    Spineless Republicans Show True Colors By Voting “NO” on RSC Budget

    While this vote doesn’t and shouldn’t automatically deem somebody a complete RINO, the vote today was disappointing as 118 Republicans voted against the RSC Budget which would balance in 4 years (a whole lot better than the Ryan Budget). This was very sad, and while I think the Democrats voting “present” should stop playing games, Republicans must decide whether they truly want to be the | Read More »

    The House GOP Gets an F this Week for Cutting Spending!

         Only 3 Conservative Representatives Opposed Both Spending Bills (Amash, Massie, and Bridenstine). This week, the House GOP voted on two bills that are well-intentioned: The Skills Act (HR 803) and the Preserving Work Requirements for Welfare Programs Act of 2013 (HR 890). Both bills follow conservative policies: reducing the number of programs and requiring people to be looking for work before they can get welfare. | Read More »

    Conservatives MUST Oppose the Rule on the Continuing Resolution

    Update 1 (3/5/13 about 5 P.M.) : Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) stated during the Rules Committee that while he likes Rep. Huelskamp and Bridenstine’s attempt to defund Obamacare…he stated that he doesn’t know “if now is the time for this fight”. Question to Mr. Burgess: If not now…when? Today, the House Rules Committee is likely to pass a closed-rule that does not allow votes on | Read More »

    Only 21 U.S. Reps Vote Against Wastefully Spending $1 Billion!

    Cross Posted from my website: Washington D.C. is up to its old tricks again as seen on February 4, 2013. The House voted on two pieces of legislation that are just a small microcosm of the spending and unconstitutional problem in the House of Representatives. The first bill which was voted on, the National Pediatric Research Network Act of 2013, does not have any additional | Read More »
