    Yes, where are our (your) Republican members of Congress? President Trump spoke to the American people last night, laid out the case for securing our border, building the wall. Pelosi and Schumer stepped up and thoroughly embarrassed themselves. Republicans in Congress, crickets. Cockroaches, maybe? They have scurried off to their safe spaces and silently hide.
  • 'We got gamed': Ryan's dream of budget reform goes poof

    A special panel dreamed up by Speaker Paul Ryan to end the constant cycle of government shutdowns crashed and burned on Thursday. The special panel tasked with recommending budget fixes overwhelmingly rejected its own set of proposals, even after lawmakers admitted the package included only modest changes to the way Congress approves budgets and funds the government. The failed vote follows months of amicable work toward a bipartisan deal. In recent weeks, however, partisan feuding divided the group as members from each side of the aisle began accusing the other party's leaders of dooming approval in the Senate. “We got...

    WASHINGTON — Senate Republican leaders were poised on Thursday to unveil a fresh proposal to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, revising their bill to help hold down insurance costs for consumers while keeping a pair of taxes on high-income people that they had planned to eliminate. With the revised bill, the majority leader, Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, is trying to keep alive his party’s seven-year quest to dismantle the health law that is a pillar of former President Barack Obama’s legacy.Republicans said the revised bill would provide roughly $70 billion in additional funds that states could use...

    This is an Excerpt. Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME said on Sunday she has extreme reservations about the U.S. Senate's healthcare overhaul and does not think it will be able to pass this week. The proposal released Thursday calls for a slower phase-out of the Medicaid expansion than a bill adopted earlier by the House.... Rand Paul, who has rejected the plan along with fellow Republican Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Ron Johnson, said fundamental problems remained that would leave taxpayers subsidizing health insurance companies. So it is possible that Mr. McConnell views the potential failure of a...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kent.) said on Wednesday that he believes President Trump has settled into the conventional Republicanism touted by rank-and-file party members, like Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). "What the administration is doing, not only am I comfortable with it, but I think the vast majority of Republicans in Congress feel that this is a right-of-center presidency, which is what we had hoped," McConnell told Reuters in an interview. "If you look at what the president is actually for, it strikes me as indistinguishable from what a President Jeb Bush or a President Marco Rubio...

    The Republican base that supported Trump are being betrayed on a scale unimaginable but so very predictable. It is perfectly clear now, the cheap labor, open borders oligarchy in the Republican Party are backstabbing President Trump and never intended to allow any of his agenda supported by the Republican Base and his voters to go forward. They want to give the majority back to the Democratic Party and all in the name of their cheap labor, open borders benefactors, the oligarchy and K-Street. Now the same Republicans have given 1.1 TRILLION dollars to the Democratic agenda, but NOTHING for us,...

    Gun Owners of America (GOA) is warning that House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Obamacare 2.o still contains measures that will allow doctors, insurance companies, and the ATF to use medical records to further a gun control agenda. GOA points out that it opposed “the original Obamacare” because it threatened Second Amendment rights and they are concerned about Ryan’s new healthcare push for the same reasons. {..snip..}

    Bill Kristol, son of Irving, names Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Mitt Romney, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and others on his hypothetical shortlist of third-party candidates that he could run if Donald Trump becomes the Republican nominee. The “Weekly Standard” editor and self-styled neoconservative power broker is back to talking about a third party, declaring that a Trump victory in Indiana would force him to re-focus on his so-called “Latter-Day Republicans” independent ticket. A third party could help to split the vote on the Right and elect Hillary Clinton president, which would allow Kristol to stave off the Trump threat and...

    Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.) says that Congress will be prepared to successfully repeal and replace the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, if a Republican president is elected in November. "If a Republican president is sworn into office in only 11 months, we are going to be ready," Upton said. "That is the challenge that Speaker [Paul] Ryan put before us." [...] In laying out the main elements of the Republican replacement proposal, the 15-term congressman also noted that it will remove several key features of the ACA. ...

    The Republican presidential contest has taken many twists and turns through 2015, but one theme appears to be a constant, driving the dynamics of the race. GOP primary voters want an outsider, not a politician who currently holds, or who has ever held elected office. That point was reiterated after the Wednesday debates, when post-debate polls showed that Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina, three candidates who have never held elected office, were in first, second and third place respectively. Combined they had won the allegiance of 58 percent of GOP voters, while none of the elected officials could...

Steve King (R-IA) is gathering a majority of the 2016 GOP presidential hopefuls at the Iowa Freedom Summit, where the likes of Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, and many more will come to kiss King’s ring and attempt to build up a base in Iowa for their upcoming campaigns. (SNIP) Carson does advise that if immigrants “are wise, they will arrange with their employer before they leave to immediately offer them a legal job as soon as their application is received” — another indication that he has no idea how long backlogs can take or what...

    Ready for the kicker? Discussing #immigration and why border security MUST come first on this issue in 25 minutes on @FoxNews #AZ #tcot— Jan Brewer (@GovBrewer) June 24, 2013 Stupidity or something worse? Border security doesn’t “come first” in the Gang of Eight bill, of course; it comes before green-card eligibility but after probationary legalization, which is why Rand Paul, for instance, can’t support it. Illegals are granted a legal claim to staying here before anything happens on the border. Which leaves three possibilities. One: Brewer’s confused about what the bill says. That seems … doubtful. She’s the governor of...
