New Raw Deal: Senate GOP Gets Nothing for Something

This week, the Senate’s top Republican and its top Democrat have been working together to find a way to open the 17% of government that’s shut down, and raise the debt ceiling. The deal reportedly being brokered mocks the definition of compromise. Here are the basics: The proposal would fund the government until Jan. 15 and extend the debt limit until Feb. 7. The plan under consideration would also require larger bicameral budget negotiations to conclude by Dec. 13. Republicans would secure a provision to force Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to certify that individuals receiving Obamacare subsidies meet the required ...

National Debt: $4 Trillion More with Nothing to Show for it

As the House looks to avoid the manufactured threat of default by raising the debt ceiling without spending cuts or other reforms, Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) is standing against the dishonest rhetoric: Coburn started off by pointing out there really is no debt ceiling, since it has never stayed in place. CUOMO: So, no surprise to you. My first question is about your take that the debt ceiling isn't that important, that we can still pay our bills. A lot of people say that that is nonsense. Are you holding to that position? COBURN: Well, who says it's nonsense? The fact is, is we're eventually going to make hard choices, Chris. And the debt ...

Pelosi on Spending Cuts: Nothing Left to Find

On Sunday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called Tea Party-minded Members of Congress “legislative arsonists.” She also made inflammatory policy statements that only the biggest spending addict could agree with. The first claim focused on the effort to rein in spending through immediate budget cuts. From Politico: "The cupboard is bare," the California Democrat said in an interview aired Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "There's no more cuts to make." "We all want to reduce the deficit," she added. "Put everything on the table, review it, but you cannot have any more cuts just for the sake of cuts. Right now you’re taking ...

Democrats and Leftstream media sharing teleprompters again

This week, the House is considering passage of the Full Faith and Credit Act, a bill that would force the Treasury Department to prioritize interest payments on the national debt and Social Security payments over all other payments. According to Ways & Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp’s (R-MI) spokesperson Michelle Dimarob, the rest of the federal budget would then be prioritized according to President Obama’s preferences. Democrats have nicknamed this piece of legislation the “Pay China First” bill. This talking point, with all of its derision, is now being parroted by various media sources, despite the reality that paying China (and ...

Calling for Tea Party Patriots Minute Men

Fellow patriots, we won in Wisconsin, but we are not finished. While we do not know how the Supreme Court is going to rule on the question of Obamacare, we do know we are going to work for its full and complete repeal, and keep working until we succeed. As you know, Obamacare surrenders at least 17% of GDP to government control. It is politely referred to as a public-private partnership, but in fact, when government czars and members of the President’s cabinet are calling all the shots, there will be nothing left of the private health care market. Our health care system was broken before President Obama, but Obamacare is simply increasing the ...

News Briefing for Wednesday, June 3

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Patriot Act Renewal: Senate Overwhelmingly Votes To Proceed “…Conservative groups are arguing against McConnell’s amendments, and that could augur trouble in the House. So far, the USA Freedom Act has enjoyed unusual support from both tea party groups and the American Civil Liberties Union. “We support passage of the USA Freedom Act as passed by the House, and see no need whatsoever for these amendments which are obviously designed to weaken the bill,” Tea Party Patriots CEO Jenny Beth Martin said in a statement. “Simply put, if it is amended in the manner that the Majority Leader desires, we will be forced to ...
