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 ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: GOP Praises Court Halting Amnesty: 'Impatient Presidents Don't Get to Change the Law'  “…Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, declared, "on to the Supreme Court." "The U.S. Constitution vests the Congress with authority over immigration and naturalization. And as U.S. District Judge Hanen pointed out, President Obama simply treated Congress — and Article 2 — as if they didn’t exist.  "We are a Constitutional Republic, not a banana republic," Martin added. "Our Constitution, with its three co-equal branches, is the roadmap for the governing process. "As much as this would-be imperial president ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Far left, far right unite on some issues in Congress “…Just last week, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Tea Party Patriots joined forces in a media blitz aimed at forcing Congress to reject a reauthorization of the NSA bulk data collection program. On Wednesday, Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul went to the Senate floor to rail against the NSA in a filibuster-style speech. Sen. Martin Heinrich, a New Mexico Democrat, joined him with a speech of his own. “Given the overwhelming evidence that the current bulk collection program is not only unnecessary but also illegal, we’ve reached a critical turning ...

HEALTHCARE: Costs trouble Obamacare enrollees “More than one-third of Obamacare enrollees aren't happy with the extra out-of-pocket costs they must still pay for healthcare. Thirty-seven percent of respondents to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll released Thursday said they're "somewhat" or "very" dissatisfied with their plan's deductible — a set sum consumers must pay for some doctors visits or treatments before their insurer steps in. Those on plans that meet the new requirements under the Affordable Care Act were more likely to report problems with costs — like being unable to pay their medical bills or skipping doctors visits because of cost ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Tea Party Group Teams With ACLU, NAACP On Patriot Act “Growing concerns about the Patriot Act’s renewal are creating strange bedfellows. The Tea Party Patriots and the ACLU are running TV ads urging Americans to “tell Congress [to] protect our privacy.” On top of that, the executive director of Iowa’s ACLU and Tea Party Patriots’ boss Jenny Beth Martin have coauthored an op-ed in the Des Moines Register on “the need for significant reforms to curtail government surveillance authorities, like some of those included in the Patriot Act.” And even the NAACP — which hasn’t always been kind to the tea party movement ...
