  • In which one GOP leader admits his party loves Obamacare and is a scam PAC

    Conservative Review ^ | April 05, 2017 | Daniel Horowitz
    It took weeks of debunking, exposing, and analyzing to cut through the grease of what many of us have known all along: Republicans love Obamacare, at least the core elements that destroyed insurance in America. They just enjoyed using Obamacare as a talking point for elections while in the opposition. This revelation should serve as a teachable moment, demonstrating to conservative voters once and for all that Republicans don’t share our values on almost any issue, let alone health care. The entire GOP is a massive scam PAC designed to use conservative issues as a flag to raise money, accrue...

    U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday said he would not back slashing State Department funding as the Trump administration is expected to propose, adding that deep cuts would not pass the legislative chamber. Speaking to reporters, McConnell also said Republicans, who control both the Senate and the House of Representatives, are still not in agreement on a healthcare plan to replace Obamacare.

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | 3/30/2017 | SHANE HARRIS, CAROL E. LEE and JULIAN E. BARNES
    WASHINGTON—Mike Flynn, President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, has told the Federal Bureau of Investigation and congressional officials investigating the Trump campaign’s potential ties to Russia that he is willing to be interviewed in exchange for a grant of immunity from prosecution, according to officials with knowledge of the matter. As an adviser to Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign, and later one of Mr. Trump’s top aides in the White House, Mr. Flynn was privy to some of the most sensitive foreign-policy deliberations of the new administration and was directly involved in discussions about the possible lifting of sanctions on...
  • Shutdown? GOP says no as it tries to save Trump priorities

    Associated Press ^ | Mar 30, 2017 5:53 PM EDT | Andrew Taylor
    The last thing President Donald Trump needs on his 100th day in office is a government shutdown. So with four weeks to go, Trump and Republican leaders are trying to salvage priorities like his wall along the Mexico border and immediate increases in defense spending without stumbling into a politically toxic government shutdown in another month. The temporary government-wide spending bill runs out at midnight April 28, and since Trump needs Democratic help in getting the legislation done, Republicans are already tamping down expectations. Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., a Trump ally, predicted that the legislation would be kept mostly free...

    Washington Post ^ | 3-25-17 | Hugh Hewitt
    By Hugh Hewitt March 25 The pulling of the GOP health-care bill this week was a big loss, and perhaps significant beyond its own costs, as it may signal that the “Area 51” sub-caucus within the Freedom Caucus is made up not so much of conservative Republicans as parties of one with no interest in an agenda shared beyond whatever exists in the space between their own ears.

    In an interview with National Journal, the Republican senator who has been in office since 1976 said he "might very well consider" not campaigning for another term if an "outstanding person" were to run for his position. . . . Asked if he had any people in mind, Hatch replied: "Well, Mitt Romney would be perfect." He added that he has reached out to Romney about the idea.

    The same people who just voted no on Paul Ryan's bill because it wasn't "conservative" enough, are the same people who voted to make Paul Ryan speaker of the House. Why? Was Ryan more conservative back then, then he is today? Did Ryan promise them something, in order to get their vote. Or is the FC just a bunch of hypocrites. I think honest people know the answer.

    GOP Groups Call Carbon Tax A Free Market Solution To Climate Change CHRIS WHITE 11:15 AM 03/20/2017 Various conservative groups are ramping up efforts to promote what they call “free enterprise” policies to wrestle the climate change warrior title from Democrats. GOP-affiliated groups, such as ConservAmerica and republicEn, are doubling efforts to recruit Republican lawmakers to work on rebutting President Donald Trump’s climate skepticism. They are also hoping to hijack the Democrats’ traditional stranglehold on the environmental movement. Their primary goal is to use what they believe are free market solutions to so-called man-made global warming to entice Republican colleagues...

    U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he’ll fight a proposal to eliminate a 52-year-old federal agency that seeks to create jobs. McConnell told WYMT-TV Saturday that he’s opposed to the proposal to do away with the Appalachian Regional Commission, which is contained in President Donald Trump’s budget for Fiscal 2018. In fact, McConnell said, “We are not going to allow any cuts” to the commission. …

    Josh Mandel will stop at nothing to keep the people of Ohio safe from illegal immigrant crime. But that is a little unusual when you consider that immigration issues don’t really fall into his job description. Mandel is Ohio’s state treasurer and is currently locked in a political fight with liberal politicians over whether or not two of the Buckeye State’s biggest cities should help illegals skirt federal law enforcement. He is coming up against a political machine that is thoroughly bipartisan. Earlier this year, the mayors of Columbus and Cincinnati announced that they wanted their cities to become sanctuary...
  • Big Government Republicans Rebuke Trump Budget

    Kentucky Republican congressman Hal Rogers, who has spent more than three decades on the House Appropriations Committee, including six years as the chairman, rejected President Donald Trump’s fiscal year 2018 budget as Congress begins consideration of the president’s rearrangement of priorities. “While we have a responsibility to reduce our federal deficit, I am disappointed that many of the reductions and eliminations proposed in the President’s skinny budget are draconian, careless and counterproductive,” said Rogers, one of the so-called “cardinals,” the nickname for the lawmakers controlling how federal money is spent. Rogers said he was concerned about cuts to programs in...

    Thursday, March 16, 2017 The Leahy Rules for Supreme Court Confirmation Mean Gorsuch Must Be Confirmed In preparation for the Gorsuch hearing next week, we thought we would mention some of the Democrat Rules for confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice from their most senior member. The Leahy Rule (Part 1) on the President’s power to pick a Supreme Court Justice. And I think as members of the [Judiciary] Committee, we should respect the mandate the president has earned. The president had told us in 1980 and 1984 he would appoint judges of his philosophy. He was given a mandate...
  • Is Trump silencing Ryan like he did Romney?

    If you follow the logic of an unnamed White House staffer in the Atlantic, the whole idea that former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney was being considered to be President Trump's secretary of state was a ruse from the beginning. Romney was one of Trump's biggest critics before the election. And after Trump declined to pick him for secretary of state, how could he criticize Trump going forward and not have it look like sour grapes? “ ‘Judas Iscariot got 30 pieces of silver; Mitt Romney got a dish of frog legs at Jean-Georges. And even at that, it was the appetizer...
  • CBO conforms: Full repeal of Obamacare is the ONLY way forward

    Conservative Review ^ | 3/13/17 | Daniel Horowitz
    Just as we predicted, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has released a report demonstrating that the “too-clever-by-half” approach of RINOcare will result in the worst possible outcome for insurance prices and coverage numbers. It’s clear that by exacerbating the death spiral of the existing failed market before 2020, the political reality will ensure that even the minor reforms implemented to Medicaid and the exchange subsidies in 2020 will never occur. And the disaster will all be blamed on a wrongly-perceived Obamacare repeal bill instead of Obamacare itself. Full repeal is the only solvent way forward.

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 3/9/2017 | Jarrett Skorup
    All House Democrats except one joined 12 Republicans to defeat a bill that would have slightly lowered Michigan’s income tax rate. A review of their campaign record shows that most of the GOP members ran on a record of lower taxes and a smaller state government. In 2007, Gov. Jennifer Granholm and Democrats in the Michigan Legislature — with the help of a few Republicans — pushed through an 11.5 percent income tax hike in the early hours of the morning on a deadline. At the time, the state was running a projected budget deficit and the tax hike was...

    WASHINGTON – Kelli Ward, a conservative Republican U.S. Senate candidate who challenged Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., during the 2016 election, says McCain and other Republicans who continuously oppose President Trump are facing a rugged future. “People like John McCain and Sen. Jeff Flake, who oppose Donald Trump are going to find themselves out in the cold and hopefully out of a job,” Ward told WND. “Career politicians are one of those many things that’s wrong with Washington, D.C.,” she continued. “President Trump said we need to drain the swamp. It’s going to take more than one cycle to do just...

    American Thinker Trump's Senate Saboteurs By Fran Fawcett Peterson March 3, 2017 The Republican-controlled Senate is to blame for only 17 Trump confirmations so far. Trump has 1242 more needing Senate approval, or the number may be as low as 500, it's hard to pin down. Republicans are to blame because they are in the majority and thus in control of the schedule. Given the Senate’s vacation schedule, officially “state work period,” there is an almost impossibility of Trump getting all 1242 appointees confirmed in four years even if they worked round the clock. If the figure is only 500...

    "If it's about some mistake I made I hate it, but if it's about someone else I love it," he cracked while talking to the Brookings Institution Board of Directors. . . . McCain, who had provided a copy of the memos to the FBI for investigation, said it was "totally wrong" that the document was leaked. "The fact that this un-validated document, to say the least, was leaked — it's somebody's responsibility," he told Fox News."The very fact that it was leaked, one, is a commentary on this town."
