  • Massive Staff Walkout Planned (Real news buried at bottom of story)

    Apologies for re-posting, but Jack hit on an incredible discovery that even HE did not highlight in his piece: "Of the entire committee staff of ninety, only two junior members are registered Republican." This is massive, and I certainly didn't know this. How many Freepers did? That Republican Congressional Committees are all run by Democrats??? Never mind the fact that this committee---I'm guessing about 16-18 people---has NINETY staffers? So now you know why the "right" questions don't get asked. The Congressmen tell their staffers, "I have a hearing with Comey on Tuesday. Prepare a list of the questions I'll be...

    Congressional technology aides are baffled that data-theft allegations against four former House IT workers — who were banned from the congressional network — have largely been ignored, and they fear the integrity of sensitive high-level information. Five Capitol Hill technology aides told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group that members of Congress have displayed an inexplicable and intense loyalty towards the suspects who police say victimized them. The baffled aides wonder if the suspects are blackmailing representatives based on the contents of their emails and files, to which they had full access. “I don’t know what they have, but...

    Republican leaders and President Donald Trump celebrated a legislative victory Thursday as the House passed the American Health Care Act, which, if it clears the Senate and is signed into law, will repeal former President Obama’s signature achievement, 2010’s Affordable Care Act. But the reaction was substantially different in Hollywood, as celebrities took to social media Thursday afternoon to voice their displeasure with the new bill and to urge fellow liberals to donate to Democratic politicians ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. Politically outspoken celebrities including Katy Perry, Amy Schumer, John Legend, George Takei, and Mark Ruffalo all tweeted about...
  • Dems Taunt Republicans with ‘Na Na Na Na’ Chant After Passage of Revised American Health Care Act

    Big Government (Breitbart) ^ | May 4, 2017 | Sean Moran
    Democrats taunted House Republicans with a “Na Na Na Na” chant after the latter passed the revised American Health Care Act (AHCA). The “Goodbye” in the chant was to be taken as a warning that passing an Obamacare repeal package will force the Republicans to lose their majority in the House. House Republicans narrowly passed their revised American Health Care Act after moderate Republicans fretted about how well the bill will protect patients with pre-existing conditions.

    Americans for Tax Reform ^ | May 4, 2017 | John Kartch
    The American Health Care Act (HR 1628) passed by the House today reduces taxes on the American people by over $1 trillion. The bill abolishes the following taxes imposed by Obama and the Democrat party in 2010 as part of Obamacare: -Abolishes the Obamacare Individual Mandate Tax which hits 8 million Americans each year. -Abolishes the Obamacare Employer Mandate Tax. Together with repeal of the Individual Mandate Tax repeal this is a $270 billion tax cut. -Abolishes Obamacare’s Medicine Cabinet Tax which hits 20 million Americans with Health Savings Accounts and 30 million Americans with Flexible Spending Accounts. This is...

    Reuters ^ | May 3, 2017 | Steve Holland and Yasmeen Abutaleb
    In a possible breakthrough for U.S. Republicans' effort to roll back Obamacare, the House of Representatives plans to hold a vote Thursday on compromise legislation, potentially ending a logjam that has delayed advancing President Donald Trump's campaign promise to repeal the law. The decision to hold a vote comes after key moderate lawmakers met with Trump on Wednesday and said a revised bill might win approval as conservatives voiced no objections. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Republican leadership is confident there is enough support for the bill to pass.

    A government-wide spending bill that President Donald Trump seemed to criticize Tuesday morning but now calls "a clear win for the American people" is headed for a House vote. The House is scheduled to vote on the bipartisan $1.1 trillion measure Wednesday afternoon. It is a product of weeks of Capitol Hill negotiations in which top Democrats like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi successfully blocked Trump's most controversial proposals, including a down payment on the oft-promised Trump Mexico border wall, cuts to popular domestic programs, and new punishments for so-called sanctuary cities.

    DENVER (AP) — Colorado's legislative leaders knew they faced a hard sell when they unveiled a bipartisan measure to ask voters for a sales tax hike and a bond issue to generate billions of dollars for transportation. That hard sell was on full display before the Democrat-led House initially approved the bill on party lines Thursday. Even after that approval, Republicans kept trying to change the bill.

    Washington Examiner ^ | April 12, 2017 | W. James Antle III
    Democratic activists are claiming a moral victory in Kansas despite narrowly losing a special congressional election there Tuesday night. Democrat James Thompson came within 10 points of Republican Kansas State Treasurer Ron Estes in the state's safely GOP 4th congressional district. President Trump carried the district by 27 points in November. Rep. Mike Pompeo, who resigned earlier this year to serve as director of the CIA, won it by 31 points. [Snip] Estes, however, is set to prevail by less than 7 points, a warning sign for the House Republican majority less than 100 days into the Trump administration.

    Fox Business ^ | Published April 04, 2017 | Charlie Gasparino , Brian Schwartz
    Vice President Mike Pence has offered to broker a peace accord with the White House and the House Freedom Caucus, a move that could lead the small but powerful faction of Congress to eventually support President Trump’s health-care overhaul, the FOX Business Network has learned. The president’s health care initiative failed two weeks ago amid criticism from the Freedom Caucus—a fiscally conservative faction inside the House GOP – that it didn’t include enough free-market initiatives to effectively reverse ObamaCare’s vast array of insurance mandates that form the current health care system. Without the support of the 36-member Freedom Caucus, Speaker...

    THE ANTIC behavior of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), who was slipped classified surveillance by senior aides to President Trump, rushed to hold a news conference about it and then scurried back to the White House to brief Mr. Trump, was clumsy and clownish — but it may have accomplished its main purpose. Mr. Nunes managed to derail his own House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into the far more serious matter of Russia’s interference in the presidential election, and to distract attention from the emergence of troubling new evidence. As the congressman’s bizarre circuit was chewed over in Washington, it emerged that...

    The chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus said there is no talk of replacing House Speaker Paul Ryan after the Republicans' proposal to repeal and replace Obamacare was killed because it failed to garner enough GOP support. On Saturday -- hours after Donald Trump tweeted to his followers, “Watch @JudgeJeanine on @FoxNews tonight at 9:00 P.M.” – Jeanine Pirro opened her show with a call for House Speaker Paul Ryan to step down in the wake of the health care bill's failure. Along the same lines, the conservative website Breitbart raised the possibility that the head of the House...

    With the Obamacare bill being pulled by President Trump yesterday due to lack of votes, Speaker Ryan’s House has little or nothing to show for itself since the President’s Inauguration on January 20th. Compared to President Trump, Paul Ryan’s House of Representatives looks stagnant! The President has signed 38 game changing executive actions to six rather insignificant pieces of legislation signed into law since the President’s inauguration. Today, Ryan’s Republicans tried to scrape up the votes to pass a highly unpopular healthcare bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. Eventually President Trump stepped in to pull the bill due to lack...

  • There May Be 22 House Republicans Ready to Sink the GOP Health Care Bill

    The legislation that House Speaker Paul Ryan and President Trump embraced to repeal and replace Obamacare was already being dogged by criticism from deeply conservative members in the House. But now it faces an emerging challenge: more moderate Republicans distancing themselves from the bill after the Congressional Budget Office concluded it would result in 24 million more people being uninsured than under the Affordable Care Act. Some senators are already suggesting this bill has little chance of passing in Congress’ upper chamber. But it may not get even there. An informal FiveThirtyEight count suggests two huge challenges for getting the...
