Paul Ryan’s Roadmap to financial solvency.
I alluded to getting this information earlier in my previous post. Here is Paul Ryan’s plan and CBO scoring. This would work and put us on a sure path to certain financial solvency. It is a long road and a lot of hard, independent work by Americans would have to be done. But, in the end it would restore our country’s prosperity and give us | Read More »
The 321 Renewal and Repeal — The Entire Battle Plan — What you can do
No entitlement has ever been repealed in this nation’s history. News media are already trying to play up that repeal is impossible (Krauthammer most notably) and it is a new day for America. They don’t realize that it is a new day, but not of what they are imagining. Well, this nation and every generation has overcome their share of insurmountable obstacles. Repeal of an | Read More »
Worth a shot. Motion to Recommit poison pill?
(H/T redneck_hippie) This according to The Hill: Democrats are worried about holding their members together on a GOP motion that could kill the healthcare bill. Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) said House leaders are specifically concerned about a Republican motion to recommit that would contain only language on abortion that Stupak originally had wanted to include in the Senate bill. The concern is based on the | Read More »
The mask has been ripped off
There will never again be such a thing as a Blue Dog or moderate Democrat. They are all posers. Anybody who represents the Democratic Party is now a liberal, pro-choice, socialist, freedom robbing politician. Anyone who thinks otherwise, just look at what has happened today. The only way for the Blue Dog and “pro-life” Democratic congressmen to demonstrate their true colors would have been: To | Read More »
Per the Hill, Evidently the unions are furious with Jason Altmire, Michael Acuri, and Steven Lynch in opposing this bill. Now if the unions are that adamant in pressing these congressmen to reconsider, that isn’t exactly a show of confidence that the bill will pass. Just food for thought. Now for the main juicy stuff of the Stupak coalition. If Stupak was a man of | Read More »
Detonate the pro-life congressmen phones: Stupak about to fall for the useless Executive Order (He and the other pro-lifers won’t get any cover from this)
From the Hill: I alluded to this many times last night and either he is the dumbest congressmen on the face of the planet or this was a great big charade all along. This guy is crazy to accept an executive order. Executive orders have to be enforced by the executive branch, can be rescinded at any time and CANNOT OVERRIDE FEDERAL LAW. IT IS | Read More »
Time to really focus in — Encourage Stupak and the pro-lifers to hold. Tennesseans, keep working on Davis and Tanner
Turn up the heat. (H/T redneck_hippie) It looks like Loretta Sanchez is going to be a no. At least that is what FireDogLake thinks and they cite Roll Call as well. Even Eva Langoria is trying to get a hold of Sanchez apparently. Sanchez has a very tough Vietnamese challenger who will score a large Asian vote and might be concerned with losing her seat. | Read More »
Direct vote on the Senate bill starting to turn some Democratic House members’ stomachs again? Also, pro-life groups cutting off Obama and Pelosi at every pass.
There is some interesting things that have happened today. The bogus”Glenn Nye is a yes” story from the AP. Obama, Pelosi, and Hoyer trying to for the umpteenth time trying to fool Stupak with empty promises. The latest being getting a presidential executive order that would ban public funding of abortions. Of course we know this is a useless offer as this would have to | Read More »
Lincoln Davis insurance policy for Pelosi?? Call up his office and demand a public statement declaring he is a NO.
Crafty little weasels. I think I see what is going on here. His staffers have been telling callers for days he is a no vote but will not come out and say so in public. Ask his staffers that if he is a no vote, why will he not publicly say so? The reasons you get should be a lot of fun. Time to upset | Read More »
The audacity of Obama and Pelosi: Please let us fool you Bart! Banking that Stupak and the pro-lifers are the dumbest Democrats
There is NO POSSIBLE WAY that any prevention of federal funding of abortion language or tools can get what Stupak and the other pro-lifers need for retaining their pro-life record. Now the latest is that Pelosi and Obama are considering an executive order that would ban federal funding of abortion? Problem, that wouldn’t be enforceable because of the language in the Senate bill that would | Read More »
The worst looking legislative bill house of cards I have ever seen.
Anybody getting tired yet? Okay, this has been a really long day and now it is early in the morning where I am at. This has been one of the biggest emotional rollercoasters that I have ever had to endure to put it lightly. So where does this thing stand? Earlier in the day this thing looked at least at how the votes were coming out | Read More »
It’s time to make these congressmen fear The People terribly this weekend.
Stupak and pro-life congressmen have announced a press conference to be held tomorrow morning at 11 A.M. to tell people how they are going to vote. My instincts like everyone else tell me they have exchanged their votes with Pelosi for an empty promise guarantee that something about abortion will be done somewhere down the road. Either these jokers are stupid to fall for Pelosi or | Read More »
Updated target list:
Jason Altmire (PA-4) (NO) Brian Baird (WA-3), John Barrow (GA-12), John Boccieri (OH-16) (YES, but keep pressuring him until we hear the announcment), Rick Boucher (VA-9), Allen Boyd (FL-2), (YES) (Stunner. He is in a heavy GOP district. Retribution from his constituents is going to be unfathomable.) Travis Childers (MS-1), (NO) Lincoln Davis (TN-4) (NO According to posters on other blogs, Davis’ staffers are telling the callers he | Read More »
Democrats in major backpedal over leaked memo exploiting doc fix CBO fraud, claim it’s a hoax and GOP submitted the memo
Somehow I am having a hard time believing them. Axelrod and company must have been doing major damage control over the last couple of hours. The Democrats are now screaming that a memo like we saw today never existed. There must have been some major shredding and deleating of documents on Capitol Hill. Ed Morrissey of Hot Air says two sources up at the Hill confirmed | Read More »
(BIG UPDATE: WINNER TAKES ALL) We are winning this fight! — Updated target list.
I have felt like this has been all tactics from Pelosi However, it is from Dick Morris so I take it with a grain of salt. However, this looks solid. Via Dick Morris: From a top level source in the House comes the news that the Democrats are still short of the 216 votes they need to pass Obamacare. They have decided, however, to | Read More »
House Democrats are blindly burning their careers — There will be no reconciliation if Obamacare passes. Hint: Lindsey Graham (Whip count update)
The latest evidence of what is up. Now we see how Obama is getting Gutierrez’s vote and the CHC. This talk coming from Lindsey Graham lately whining that if the Democrats go with reconciliation, it will kill immigration reform is all making sense now. Obama assured Gutierrez that they will deal with the immigration issue in the future. Now Obama must have promised some urgency to | Read More »
(Updated:) Pelosi’s next pressure momentum tactic #3. March 18-19, D-Weekend at the nation’s capital.
No details on the reconciliation bill as I can seem to get access to. All I see is a stupid schedule. Dems hiding the ball here? Someone help me get a copy of it so I can rip it apart. All right, here’s the deal. This has been going the way I thought. This could either be just kabuki theater and Pelosi has the votes | Read More »
(UPDATE: Info from Michelle Malkin) The People’s Whip? — Saturday, March 18 — GOP leaders call on the people to descend on Washington
GOP leaders on the Glenn Beck show have called on the people to descend on Washington, Saturday, March 18. Remember how Democrats laughed and mocked the Tea Party lobbying effort on Tuesday? Time to send these jokers a message and put this healthcare abomination back into the crypt. It’s time for the people to really crack their whip and show Obama and Pelosi who has the biggest whip | Read More »
(UPDATE: CBO Score out — $940 B UPDATE 2: Obama has cancelled (postponed Asia Trip)) Morning whip count update and looking at Democratic strategy.
Help from Ace and the Hill A few surprising developments since I slept. Tough to sleep when you’re in a war. From the way I see things, I am cautiously optimistic but really I think nothing can be taken for granted. Heath Shuler says he is now undecided. He caught a whole lot of hell from his constituents back at the August recess and his comments | Read More »
(Update:) Bad CBO score = Obama negotiating with AFL-CIO union leader to agree to have their union members sacrifice (a.k.a. union members are about to get their Cadillac health plans taxed)
Via Hot Air: Evidently there is very bad news coming from the CBO. GOP congressmen Joe Barton stated that the CBO estimate for the reconciliation bill came back at over $1 trillion. Yes, you read that right. That’s a 1 followed by 12 zeros. It is unlikely that this would meet the requirments for a reconciliation bill as Reid’s bill is cheaper. Of course the | Read More »
