Dem compares GOP to 'birthers' for issuing Solyndra subpoena
By Ben Geman - 11/03/11 03:12 PM ET
Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) is comparing Republicans who voted to subpoena the White House for Solyndra documents to critics of President Obama who allege he wasnt born in the United States.
Schakowsky was among a parade of Energy and Commerce Committee Democrats who slammed the subpoena vote Thursday, calling it a political attack that ignores White House efforts to work with the committee on its request for documents.
I doubt that anything the White House would have agreed to yesterday would have been sufficient. This is a majority that wont take yes for an answer, Schakowsky said Thursday ahead of the committee vote.
And while you are at it why dont you ask for more documents relating to the place of his birth, or as some members want, his school grades, and why not from kindergarten through law school, she added.
Her comments are an allusion to the birther movement that doubts Obama was born in Hawaii. Obama released his long-form birth certificate in April.
The Energy and Commerce Committees investigations panel voted along party lines to issue the subpoena Thursday for all White House internal communications on Solyndra, the solar manufacturing company that went bankrupt in early September after receiving a $535 million Energy Department loan guarantee in 2009.
White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler on Wednesday met with top committee Republicans and Democrats and offered to provide documents if lawmakers narrowed their request.
But Republicans on Thursday went ahead with the vote to authorize the subpoena, arguing the White House has not been responsive enough to their efforts.
At this point in time, I am not confident that we will have a good faith response from the White House without issuing a subpoena, said Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.), the chairman of the investigations panel, ahead of the vote.
And she can't answer questions about either.
And neither can we, because Obama hasn't produced either.
Keep talkin, just keeeep talkin.
Any criticism is called “birtherism” or something by these folks. And everyone sees it for what it is.
So now the Democrats are asserting that questions about Obama’s eligibility are totally legitimate?
Idiot Trump pushing that birth certificate issue has given liberals an easy way to dismiss legitimate issues like Solyndra. Thanks idiots.
I hear there is great property in Vancouver, have you checked it out?
my post was intended for Lib Loather who likely lives no where near Vancouver!
My Humble apologies.
I am tired and off to bed.
Because wanting to know why taxpayer money was wasted on this is exactly the same wax questioning the details of the One’s birth. What a load of crap.
They look stupid when they try to pull this.
It's not either, it's neither.
And she can neither answer questions about the House, nor Intelligence, nor a Committee.
And her husband, Robert Creamer went to the Federal lockup in Terre Haute for fraud a couple of years ago! One criminal married to another. Makes sense!
Now if they can pick and choose documents, why on Earth would they send documents implicating them in possible criminal behavior ?
Dem. Rep. Jan Schakowsky Spotted Marching With Occupy Chicago Protesters
October 11, 2011
Oops! Jan Schakowsky, Calling for Higher Taxes, Cites Source Who Collected $250,000 Earmark
Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) unwittingly highlighted the corruption inherent in congressional earmarks today, in an op-ed published in the Chicago Tribune.
Calling for Congress to raise taxes on millionaires and billionaires, Schakowsky quoted a constituent who supports her:
Our country is not really broke, said Cynthia Carranza, who directs a food pantry in Niles. Carranza has watched the increase in hungry people at her food pantry door even as government support for her program is slashed. Were an incredibly rich and prosperous nation. But our wealth is skewed to a very few fortunate at the top. Were not broken, just twisted.
Carranzas support for government redistribution of wealth is no surprise. She may complain about the rich, but she has benefited richly from federal largesse: Carranzas food pantry was the recipient of a $250,000 earmark requested by Schakowsky for FY 2011 in the run-up to last years congressional election.
