    Rep. Jim Banks says it's unnecessary for Democrats to spend almost $40 billion to expand Medicare to cover more services when the program is currently headed toward insolvency ============================================================================ Turning the tables on Democrats who argue Republican opposition to Obamacare has denied Americans health care coverage, a key GOP lawmaker is warning that President Biden's Build Back Better Act would lead to roughly 2 million people losing their employer-based medical insurance. "Democrats have always sought to make as many people dependent on the federal government for health care as possible, while eliminating every other option that could drive down prices...

    The Congressional Budget Office on Thursday released its “official” cost estimates for the House tax and entitlement bill, but don’t believe it. The CBO gnomes aren’t lying about a 10-year deficit estimate of $367 billion. They’re obliged to score the bill under rules that Democrats have rigged with multiple tricks that disguise the real cost by trillions of dollars. Democrats phase out the biggest programs in the bill while paying for them with 10 years of tax increases. They phase-in other programs and off-load costs to the states. The Penn Wharton Budget Model estimates the House bill would cost nearly...

    WASHINGTON — Republican Sen. Mitt Romney on Sunday defended the filibuster and blasted Democrats calling for its elimination, dismissing their latest discussion to end it in order to pass voting rights legislation as "an unserious partisan effort aimed at messaging and energizing that party's base." "The need to marshal 60 votes to end a filibuster requires compromise and middle ground. It not only empowers the minority but also has helped to keep us centered, fostering the stability and predictability essential to investment in people, in capital and in the future," Romney, a moderate Republican who represents Utah, wrote in an...

    Sen. Mitt Romney says if Congressional Democrats and President Joe Biden are set on passing a $3.5 trillion spending bill without a single Republican vote, then Democrats should be responsible for raising the nation’s debt limit. “Right now it’s my colleagues across the aisle who are raising the spending. They should be the ones who raise the debt ceiling,” Romney said during a wide-ranging visit with The Tribune’s editorial board. The fight over the debt limit is a high-stakes game of “chicken” playing out in Congress, where Democrats have very slim majorities in both the House and Senate. The debt...
  • Romney 'felt a pit in his stomach' at 'surprisingly good' early Trump election night numbers

    On election night last November, Sen. Mitt Romney watched the early returns and developed "a pit in his stomach" at then-President Donald Trump's strong performance in early states, an excerpt from a forthcoming book by Washington Post reporters Carol D. Leonnig and Philip Rucker said. In fact, the numbers were "surprisingly good" for Trump, with now-President Joe Biden underperforming in Florida's Miami-Dade County, where Democratic presidential nominees need to perform strongly in order to capture the populous swing state. That night, Romney told his family that Trump would be victorious in the presidential election, the excerpt from "I Alone Can...

    Paul Ryan (I know, sorry for bringing him up) delivered a speech at the Reagan Presidential Library at the end of May in which he sought to reassert himself as a leader of the Republican Party. His shtick was the same spit wash that Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney, and George Bush have tried rubbing on the Republican electorate time and again since Biden's official installation. We're better than this reality TV outsider who hijacked the party. Boo to populism; yay to True Conservatism, Inc.! This is serious, people; we're at a 'crossroads' here.I'll tell ya, he sold me.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — When former President Donald Trump was asked to list those he considers the future leaders of the Republican Party, he quickly rattled off names including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Sens. Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz. Conspicuously absent from the list: Mike Pence. The former vice president is steadily reentering public life as he eyes a potential run for the White House in 2024. He’s joining conservative organizations, writing op-eds, delivering speeches and launching an advocacy group that will focus on promoting the Trump administration’s accomplishments.

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) is receiving a profile in courage award from the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation for his “historic vote” to impeach then-President Trump during his first impeachment trial last year, the foundation announced on Friday. “Senator Romney‘s commitment to our Constitution makes him a worthy successor to the senators who inspired my father to write 'Profiles in Courage,'” former Ambassador Caroline Kennedy said in a statement. “He reminds us that our Democracy depends on the courage, conscience and character of our elected officials.” Romney was the sole Republican senator to vote to impeach Trump last February on...

    A new survey has found that for the first time, a majority of Republicans support same-sex marriage. As part of its annual American Values Atlas, the Public Religion Research Institute released a report Thursday finding broad support for pro-LGBT policies in the United States spanning across partisan, ethnic and religious lines. The results of the survey match findings of other studies showing rising support for such policies. Overall, 67% of Americans support same-sex marriage. Support for allowing same-sex couples to marry is highest among Democrats (76%) and independents (72%). Notably, 51% of Republicans, who are seen as the party committed...

    Senator Mitt Romney said that he believes former President Donald Trump would win the Republican presidential nomination if he ran for office in 2024. "He has by far the largest voice and a big impact in my party," Romney said at a New York Times event on Tuesday. "I don't know if he'll run in 2024 or not, but if he does, I'm pretty sure he will win the nomination." Romney, the GOP presidential nominee in 2012, said that "a lot can happen between now and 2024," adding that he is not "great at predicting." However, he said he expects...
  • Now THREE Republican Senators have been censured for voting to convict Trump: Pat Toomey, Richard Burr and Bill Cassidy are punished by their own party - while Utah's GOP sparks fury by backing Mitt Romney

    Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina was formally reprimanded by his state Republican party on Monday night after he voted to convict Donald Trump - making him the third of the seven Republicans who turned on their former president to be punished. All three have been formally censured - a censure from the party being essentially a public reprimand that lets party activists voice their disapproval. Three more are likely to be censured, with only Lisa Murkowski of Alaska expected to escape the reprimand from her state party, while it's uncertain if Utah's GOP leaders will bend to a petition...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R–Utah) recently introduced a universal child allowance in an effort to reform federal welfare programs. That goal is worthy, but his means would be counterproductive. For all intents and purposes, he's proposing a kid-centric version of entrepreneur and aspiring politician Andrew Yang's "basic income." According to Romney's summary of his own plan, "The Family Security Act would provide a monthly cash benefit for families, amounting to $350 a month for each young child, and $250 a month for each school-aged child." To his credit, the senator's new proposed entitlement wouldn't be unfunded. Romney would "pay for" the...

    Senator Mitt Romney (R., Utah) on Thursday unveiled a proposal for a monthly child allowance, in which most parents of children younger than six would receive $350 and parents of kids ages six to 17 would receive $250. Romney’s Family Security Act is similar to a Democratic plan to increase the child tax credit from $2,600 to $3,600 as part of Biden’s coronavirus relief legislation. Democrats want to boost the tax credit, make it “fully refundable” so that lower-income parents qualify, and have the Internal Revenue Service disburse the payments in advance on a monthly basis, essentially creating a child...

    Article Dig In Sen. Mitt Romney on Thursday proposed providing monthly payments to families with children to help them weather the COVID-19 pandemic. "This proposal offers a path toward greater security for America’s families by consolidating the many complicated programs to create a monthly cash benefit for them, without adding to the deficit,” Romney said in a press release. The Utah Republican said the proposal would streamline existing family policies to create one universal child benefit, titled the Family Security Act. Under the proposal, the existing child tax credit would be replaced with monthly payments of $350 for children ages...

    “I think we should have nothing to do with Marjorie Taylor Greene, and think we should repudiate the things she said and move away from her,” Romney told reporters… Asked if he was surprised by McConnell’s comments, Romney said it was important for the Republican Party to “separate ourselves from the people in the wacky weeds.” “If we don’t, then our opposition tries to brand us with their image and with their point of view, which has been detrimental to any party that doesn’t do that,” Romney said.

    For anyone not residing in D.C., that was the obvious lesson of 2016. Over four years later, too many elected representatives still haven't figured that out. Washington Republicans have worked tirelessly to make President Trump go away, and they have done so at great cost to the future of the Republican Party. When Republican leaders constantly countermand the voters of their own party, many voters would rather destroy the party and start from scratch than reward the very people who seem to hate them most. If the Mitt Romneys, Paul Ryans, Ben Sasses, or any of the other consistent NeverTrump...

    Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, is grieving over, as CNN reporter Dana Bash put it, President Trump's "very firm grip on the Republican Party." Bash recently asked Romney whether he fears the party won't "be able to overcome Trumpism in the near future." Romney didn't object to Bash's negative characterization of Trumpism. He merely responded that he believes "Trump will continue to have a substantial influence on the party" and that those other than Trump who are rumored to be GOP presidential candidates in 2024 "are trying to appeal to kind of a populist approach."
