    GAO has no option other than to find that President Biden’s pause of the border wall funds is unlawful and should issue an opinion stating the Biden administration has broken the law.Last Congress, many Democrats, including Rep. John Yarmuth, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, claimed the Trump administration’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) broke the law when it paused the obligation of funds to Ukraine for 50 days to determine the best use for them. On the very first day of his administration, however, President Biden directed that funding specifically appropriated to build the wall along the...

    As we told you earlier this week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attempted to dunk on Republicans with a tweet about the GOP posing an “older male member” of the party next to a cardboard cutout of her. However, AOC’s dunk attempt turned into an epic faceplant after it was noticed the “Republican” in the photo was actually her Democrat colleague, Rep. John Yarmuth. After that, AOC couldn’t reach the “delete” key fast enough. But the MSM being the MSM, ABC News took a “Republicans pounce” angle to the story, and they’re not alone, as evidenced by USA Today:

Ocasio-Cortez had NO IDEA the man in the photo is fellow Democrat Rep. John Yarmuth of Kentucky. Yarmuth, serving his seventh term, is the Chairman of the House Budget Committee.

    I’ve noticed many pundits, in the fallout from the Covington boys vs. the Native American incident, saying that the kids shouldn’t have worn MAGA hats. I’ve seen it said over and over, mainly by people walking back previous vicious comments about the boys and trying to balance it by now saying “well, they shouldn’t have been wearing the hats.” Others have chimed in, too, for example this member of Congress. I kid you not: Rep. John Yarmuth ✔ @RepJohnYarmuth I am calling for a total and complete shutdown of teenagers wearing MAGA hats until we can figure out what is...

    American Tax Reform ^ | 1/7/2019 | Alex Hendrie
    House Budget Chairman John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) has announced that the forthcoming budget blueprint will call for a 33 percent corporate income tax rate by hiking the rate from 21 percent to 28 percent. This would make the U.S. a less competitive place to do business and make the U.S. statutory rate higher than many developed competitors. State corporate taxes average 6 percent across the U.S, so this planned tax hike would give the U.S. an average top corporate rate of 34 percent. The current combined corporate rate across the 36 member Organisation for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD) is currently...

    FRANKFORT, KY (SPECTRUM NEWS) — After an hours long closed meeting Tuesday, the Kentucky Board of Elections announced how they would move on after a senior staffer made seriously allegations of harassment and misuse of power by Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes. Monday, the Executive Director of the State Board of Elections, Jared Dearing, sent a letter to board members, making several complaints about Grimes.

    LOUISVILLE- Republicans have called for a federal investigation into allegations that Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes misused voter data—but so far unsurprisingly— top Democrats in Kentucky are staying mum. When asked about the allegations Tuesday, Attorney General Andy Beshear said his office was looking into the claims. “Given that the allegations are very new and very fresh, I think it would be premature to comment any further but we are in possession of that letter.” he said. Mac Brown, Chair of the Republican Party of Kentucky, has called for a federal investigation into the claims as well as Dearing...

    Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY)suggested on Monday that President Trump does not have the mental capacity to serve as commander in chief. “This is not somebody, in my mind, who is emotionally stable enough to be president of the United States,” he said on MSNBC on Monday. “I have real serious concerns about this.” Specifically, the representative wants a president who will take a 3:30 a.m. phone call, but will not stay up all night tweeting. “I think that’s what we have,” Yarmuth said. “We have a president who is up all night, who’s tweeting at all kinds of crazy hours,...

John Yarmuth, D-Louisville, says Vice President Joe Biden’s entry in the race “could cause a lot of problems for a lot of Democrats (with) split loyalties.” Speaking to Pure Politics on Tuesday, Yarmuth said he’s “not sure yet” if a run from Biden would be better for Democrats seeking to keep the White House. “Joe is very popular. He is a great public servant,” Yarmuth said. (3:53) “I’ve known him since he came to the Senate in 1972. He’s a wonderful man, and I think he’d be a...

    National Review ^ | 08/20/2015 | Joel Gehrke
    A House Democrat thinks that Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server scandal has the potential to ruin her political career. “I think if she intentionally misled or lied to the American people and did something that was clearly against the rules, and knowingly did it against the rules, if that is the ultimate conclusion, then I think she has disqualified herself,” Representative John Yarmuth (D., Ky.) told a local political reporter. Yarmuth endorsed then-Senator Barack Obama in his 2008 presidential bid against Clinton. “I’m not saying she is more divisive,” he said at the time. “[But] she is less capable of bridging...

    Several top Democrats are voicing grave reservations over the Obama administration's emerging deal governing the future of Iran's nuclear program. Reps. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) and Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) said they welcome a discussion on the framework agreement unveiled Thursday, but harbor deep doubts that the Iranians can be trusted to make good on their commitments. "I greet any deal with Iran with great skepticism given its deceptive history and ongoing destabilizing and dangerous activities," Deutch, the ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs subpanel on the Middle East, said in a statement. "I remain deeply concerned as to how a...
