The Top 11 Reasons We Need to Fire John Boehner!

Arsonists, Terrorists, and Anarchists, Oh My!

This week, two of Washington’s most powerful Democrats accused Tea Party activists of being “legislative arsonists” and “anarchists,” respectively. Now a Republican Congressman is joining in the fun, saying those who stand with Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) are engaging in “governmental terrorism.” What is governmental terrorism, according to Rep. Peter King (R-NY)? The New York Times has the scoop! What offends Mr. King is that Mr. Cruz…dared other Republicans to be as pure and relentless in their opposition to the health care program as he is, even though everyone knew his tactics were doomed. It also struck Mr. King as an unprincipled ...

Two-and-a-Half Years: A History of Speaker Bohener’s “Winning”

On Monday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) told reporters there would be a “whale of a fight” over the debt ceiling this fall. Given the last two-and-a-half years of history, however, it’s clear that Speaker Bohener’s intimidating talking points rhetoric is just that – rhetoric. Here are a few examples: In the 2010 “Pledge to America,” the soon-to-be Speaker said a Republican majority in the House would cut $100 billion from the federal budget. He verified this at CPAC in 2011. The final “cut,” only a couple of months later? $352 million. The next great debate in Washington was over the debt ceiling in August 2011. The ...

Oh the Humanity: Sequester Reduces Government Conference Travel

Each year, the federal government wastes hundreds of billions of dollars on fraud, duplication, and other inefficiencies, many times the size of sequestration’s “cuts” to the federal budget. Over at The New York Times, however, the narrative of sequestration’s “harm” must be maintained: Five months after gridlock in Washington triggered the deep spending cuts known as sequestration, much of the United States government is grounded. Most government travel budgets have been cut this year by 30 percent, the result of an administration directive forcing managers to make difficult policy decisions about whom to send, where to send them and ...

Oh, good: Latest GAO report details billions more in wasteful/duplicative spending

Okay, so I stole the headline from Erika Johnsen, but any other description of this would require inappropriate language: The government has 76 programs to treat drug abuse spread across 15 different agencies. It has 47 programs for job training. And there are three federal agencies that inspect catfish. These are among the findings in a new Government Accountability Office report that found 162 areas where services are duplicated or money is being wasted in the federal government. The annual cost of duplicative or wasteful programs is estimated at roughly $250 billion, according to fiscal hawk Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla. Senator Coburn has sent a ...

Interview with Senator Ron Johnson

Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) is a businessman who ran against then-Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) in the 2010 elections. Since his victory at that time, he has led on the issues most important to the Tea Party – repeal of Obamacare, the national debt, the federal budget, and taxes. Senator Johnson was kind enough to sit down with Tea Party Patriots blogger Dustin Siggins last week for a short time to give his thoughts on spending, the three-year anniversary of the passage of Obamacare, and other issues facing the nation.   Dustin Siggins: How is the district work period going for you? Senator Ron Johnson: We’re traveling all over the ...
