One preloaded racism explanation, coming right up!
Via the Daily Caller we get to see the latest use of mass therapy to treat the crippling scourge of liberal lack of self esteem. Using your money. If you think $50,000 doesn’t buy what it used to, think again. For that rough sum, a professor at UCLA has agreed to draw up a report that proves opponents of the Democrats’ health-care bill aren’t motivated | Read More »
America Speaking Out: Your Voice Matters
I am proud to join my Republican colleagues to announce the creation of America Speaking Out. America Speaking Out is a project to create a new set of policies to generate real solutions for the problems our country is current facing – and it gives every American the opportunity to take part in the discussion of exactly how to do that. The Democratic leadership in | Read More »
Rasmussen: Support for Obamacare repeal almost 2-to-1.
I almost wish I hadn’t written this: it would have been perfect for this Rasmussen poll on Obamacare. Support for repeal of the new national health care plan has jumped to its highest level ever. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 63% of U.S. voters now favor repeal of the plan passed by congressional Democrats and signed into law by President Obama | Read More »
Administration caught lying on insurance relief law.
(via @amandacarpenter) Let us walk through a test case on the administration’s claimed insurance support for small business owners. Zach owns a small business (24 employees, average salary $35K) and provides them with health care ($79.2K/year). He has already seen a 15% increase in health care costs this year, so he is quite keen to hear about insurance relief. The White House’s PR flunkies were | Read More »
Time for change – in both Washingtons
This year, Americans will have an historic opportunity to “break up” with the Washington insiders and career politicians who have wrested control of our government and hijacked our institutions and democratic processes.One such figure is Sen. Patty Murray, the fourth-ranking member of Democrat leadership in the Senate. Sen. Murray was first elected to the Senate by the good people of my state, Washington, back in | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi’s ‘Tell’
Nancy Pelosi proves that it is possible to give “tells”, even if your face can’t move and you are an accomplished liar. First, the “she made an utter fool of herself” part, because any chance to point and snicker at Pelosi is A-Okay with me. While giving a speech to the National Association of Counties, Pelosi said the following: “You’ve heard about the controversies, the | Read More »
After Obamacare: What Do Conservatives And Republicans Want on Health Care?
Democrats trying to defend their flailing healthcare bills have tried, repeatedly, a two-pronged attack on the mostly united Republican opposition to the various plans floated by the Senate and House Democrats and the Obama White House. One is to suggest that Republicans are criticizing the proposed Democratic solutions without having any of their own – implying that there really is no other choice but to | Read More »
Only Rep. Frank could go kill health care rationing…
…and he just did. “I know some of my Democratic colleagues had been thinking about ways to, in effect, get around the results by working in various parliamentary ways, looking at the rules, trying to get a health care bill passed that would have been the same bill that would have passed if [MA AG] Martha Coakley [D] had won, and I think that’s a | Read More »
We Are No Longer a Nation of Laws. Senate Sets Up Requirement for Super-Majority to Ever Repeal Obamacare
If ever the people of the United States rise up and fight over passage of Obamacare, Harry Reid must be remembered as the man who sacrificed the dignity of his office for a few pieces of silver. The rules of fair play that have kept the basic integrity of the Republic alive have died with Harry Reid. Reid has slipped in a provision into the | Read More »
Have you seen me?
My name is Russ Carnahan (D, MO-03), and I’m lost: (via Dana Loesch. Also note: Ed Martin is running against this guy.) I was last seen a week or so ago, hiding in a garage after a get-together I threw ended with some people that I invited beating up a guy. I’ve dropped off the face of the earth since then. No Twitter*, no blogging, | Read More »
Rep. Maxine Waters (D): Let’s primary Blue Dogs.
This throwaway line in a Hill article (“Dem healthcare infighting intensifies”): And on Tuesday it prompted Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) to hint that more liberal members of the party should consider challenging centrist Blue Dogs in next year’s primaries. …eventually led me to this (via The Patriot Room: he also has a related video there) article about what has to be one of the more, | Read More »
This sums up the Democratic Congressional strategy perfectly.
On Tuesday night, be given a health care bill the size of Delaware that nobody in your office had a chance to read (over 1,000 pages, in this case). On Wednesday, watch it be jammed through various committees. On Thursday, find out from that the nonpartisan oversight group that’s supposed to be regulating this sort of thing hasn’t been able to read it, either. Note | Read More »
It’s time for a broadside on SCHIP
Congress is currently debating legislation that would force Americans to pay billions of dollars to take an unpopular taxpayer-funded program for poor children and expand it so that non-poor, non-children will be granted access to benefits. The program is the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), a taxpayer-funded health coverage program that provides federal dollars to states in an effort to give children in working | Read More »
