Making Congress Afraid Again…These Things They Fear (Part II)
In December I wrote that this is not likely to end pretty. We saw, since the ’09 summer of our discontent, that rather then retreating, the Obamailis were actually quickening their pace, as if to negate any effect the coming November election might have…not only on health care, but their grander design and the fate of the nation. Although we could be wrong, pray we | Read More »
Bundling payoffs to pass health care: HOPE! CHANGE!
If this was happening in some other country, I would be laughing hysterically right now. Taking a new position, Axelrod said the White House only objects to state-specific arrangements, such as an increase in Medicaid funding for Nebraska, ridiculed as the “Cornhusker Kickback.” That’s being cut, but provisions that could affect more than one state are OK, Axelrod said. That means deals sought by senators | Read More »
A Disconnected Congress
The House of Representatives spent much of yesterday discussing H.ConRes. 248, the Afghanistan War Powers Resolution, sponsored by Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH). The resolution would have required the president to remove all U.S. troops in Afghanistan within 30 days of the resolution being signed into law unless the president felt it would not be safe to do so. In that case, the president would then | Read More »
RED FLAG ALERT * UPDATED* – House Preparing New Rule To Pass Senate Health Care Without Floor Vote On Actual Bill
UPDATE at the end of this post! In a scheme which is designed to give House Democrats the ability to vote for health care while telling their constituents they did not vote for health care, House Rules Chairwomen Louise Slaughter is preparing a rules change to push through the Senate bill WITHOUT a floor vote specifically on the bill. Here’s how it works. The rule | Read More »
Democrats, Leadership, and ObamaCare
I am 43 years old with 25 stents in three major heart arteries; the American healthcare system saved my life. My stents are drug-eluting, the same state of art stents recently received by Bill Clinton. In Canada, my birth country, many are not so lucky. There, rationing, lack of innovation, and a shortage of expertise are real problems and no perversion of the truth changes | Read More »
Dem House Candidate Wins Primary on “Impeach Obama” Platform
Texas Congressman Pete Olson (R-TX-22) may not have to worry much about his upcoming re-election, but his opponent sure knows how to get attention. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/metropolitan/6899832.html Kesha Rogers called for the impeachment of President Barack Obama as the centerpiece of her campaign for Congress, and on Tuesday she won the nomination of her party. The Democratic Party. Rogers has “denounced warnings of global warming as imperialist | Read More »
You know Rubio and DeVore, now meet Mulvaney.
“In just a generation Washington has gone from ‘Ask not what your country can do for you….” to “We will guarantee your GM warranty.’” With national attention being placed on spending, healthcare “reform” and jobs, it’s easy to forget that, as Tip O’neill said, “All politics is local.” With this in mind, I reached out to the Republican candidate for the 5th Congressional District in | Read More »
The House Vote on the Senate Healthcare Bill Is the Final Vote; Obama Will Sign It Into Law
Americans need to understand the devastating significance of the House vote on the Senate health care bill set for March 18th. The Democrats have–by design–created the perfect storm to take over the US healthcare system, while providing an ideal distraction–reconciliation. First, let’s examine exactly how we got here. In late December, while Americans were arguing that no one had read the bill, Leiberman was posturing | Read More »
The *wrong* Big Question.
(Via Instapundit) The Hill’s Congress Blog asks a question which has a very obvious answer: Should Obama get tough with Congress? or Should President Barack Obama be more assertive in pushing the rest of his legislative agenda? …and the answer is, of course, “Yes.” Presidents always need to get tough with Congress. They particularly need to get tough with Congress when both the legislative and | Read More »
A brief (really) suggestion concerning how to get reelected if you’re a conservative
Do not tell me how much money you’ve brought home to your district. That money belonged to someone else, which means you’ve confiscated/taken something that doesn’t belong to you. Instead, tell me how you’ve gotten government OUT of your home district and OUT of the the lives of your constituents. Conservatives will FLOCK to your banner like ants to a piece of bubblegum on the | Read More »

Once More Unto the Breach
As you read this, President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Senator Reid are lining up their troops to drag their government takeover of health care across the finish line. This is no easy task considering how strongly the American people have objected. Even so, they are absolutely determined to jam this through with an iron fist regardless of the electoral consequences. Some of you may be | Read More »
DC Politicians, did you learn anything from TARP, Porkulus, et al?
Do not, under any circumstances, lend your name to any of the upcoming liberal bills. Period. Please note there is no ambiguity there, no wiggle room, no ‘except [insertyourpetprojecthere]‘. Do NOT reach across the isle. Do NOT compromise. Do NOT spend any more of my tax dollars on things not specifically, SPECIFICALLY in your constitutional job description. The very idea some politicians feel they have | Read More »
