As a result, lawmakers would not have a built in check, in the form of a reauthorization, in the years ahead. Instead, market-distorting programs would continue indefinitely, like | 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 »

Let Sequestration Happen To Save Our Fiscal State!
Only in Washington D.C. would people pass a bad deal and then fight about how to replace the bad deal. That is essentially what is happening today.

Urge Conservatives to Write Amendment to Offset Sandy Funds!
I’m encouraging conservative reps to get together and write an amendment to offset the Sandy funds (the $51 billion that will be coming up). For the appropriate parts, they should find wasteful spending and bring the amendment to the floor of the house. Then, they can vote for the amendment. Even if it fails, they have something to back up their vote. A lot of | Read More »
