The Stupidity of the GOP

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Republicans have already given away the farm.

Imagine a teenager goes on a shopping spree with his dad’s credit card one month and unalterably charges the card with hundreds of thousands in expenditures. Then, the next day at the supper table, he passes his dad a note saying he is willing to help balance the family’s budget. You are as foolish as that dad if you are taken in by the GOP’s vote this week on a balanced budget amendment.… Continue Reading “The Stupidity of the GOP”

The $1.3 Trillion Omnibus Spending Bill: NeverTrumpers Squeal With Joy

Written by John Biver

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) would not have signed the massive spending bill last Friday if he were president.

Ed Straker at American Thinker lists a series of Tweets by Ted Cruz that lay out some of the truly ugly/awful/terrible and inexcusable contents found in that $1.3 trillion-dollar budget.

Here are just a few of those Tweets:

This is why I’ll vote against the omnibus spending bill:

In 2016, the American people voted overwhelmingly for Republicans to change Washington.

McConnell and Ryan Should Resign

Written by Walker Wildmon

Republicans in Congress passed and President Trump signed a 2,200 page $1.3 trillion dollar budget. To say this bill is bad is an understatement. Haven’t you heard this all before? It seems like every other month I’m writing about how Congress passed a horrible budget deal. That’s because this isn’t the first time we’ve crossed this bridge.

This budget funds Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider. It hardly funds a fraction of President Trump’s proposed border wall.… Continue Reading “McConnell and Ryan Should Resign”

What’s the Deal With Congressional Republicans?

Written by Brian C. Joondeph

Every few months, Republicans behave stupidly, causing their voters to again ask themselves, “Why vote Republican?”  Supporting congressional Republicans seems an exercise in futility – Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown, ready to kick a conservative field goal, only to have Lucy pull the football away at the last second.  I have asked this question several times

We all know the words to the Republican song we have heard every two years for the past decade.  … Continue Reading “What’s the Deal With Congressional Republicans?”

Republicans Guarding the Swamp

Written by Rob Chambers

Democrats have become obstructionists in the American democratic republic. They routinely oppose legislation designed to protect national security and the sanctity of human life. Also, U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and other moderate to liberal Republicans have participated to a great degree in this obstruction. How so?

Take for example the omnibus, Continuing Resolution (CR) spending bill that just passed the U.S. House and U.S.Continue Reading “Republicans Guarding the Swamp”

Pro-life Leader Charmaine Yoest Named to HHS Post

Written by Dave Bohon

Charmaine Yoest, an outspoken pro-life leader and former president of Americans United for Life (AUL), has been chosen by the Trump administration to serve as assistant secretary for public affairs in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Yoest will serve under another pro-life champion, former U.S. Representative Tom Price (R-Ga.), who was confirmed as HHS secretary in February. As a congressman Price had a perfect pro-life voting record and, like Yoest, has been a vocal proponent of cutting all federal funding to abortion giant Planned Parenthood, whose funding is funneled through HHS.… Continue Reading “Pro-life Leader Charmaine Yoest Named to HHS Post”

Obamacare vs. Obamacare Lite

Written by David E. Smith

Illinois families have been devastated by Obamacare through rising premiums and higher deductibles. In rural areas of our state, fewer insurers mean less competition and an increase in costs even as choice is limited.

Apparently, we must remind U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and the political leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives that the National Republican Platform calls for the repeal of Obamacare and that many Congressional Republicans ran on a platform of appealing this big government mandate and program.… Continue Reading “Obamacare vs. Obamacare Lite”

GOP Replaces ObamaCare with SwampCare

GOP Replaces ObamaCare with SwampCare

Written by Bryan Fisher

Well, now we know why the GOP establishment kept their ObamaCare replacement package locked in a room where not even GOP senators could read it. Everyone naturally wondered what they were hiding, and now we know. They were hiding it because it is a horrible, no good, very bad piece of legislation.

If it repeals ObamaCare in any meaningful sense (and it doesn’t), it only replaces it with something as bad if not worse.… Continue Reading “GOP Replaces ObamaCare with SwampCare”

Will Obamacare Repeal Really Leave 30 Million without Insurance?

repeal-and-replace-obamacare

Written by Dr. Brian Joondeph

Repeal and replace.  That was and still is the Donald Trump promise for Obamacare.  Congressional Republicans are ready to join in.  Not that they haven’t been trying for the past six years, with over 60 attempts at repeal at the congressional level, all quickly dispatched by the Obama veto pen.

Now that there is a new sheriff in town, the veto threat is gone.  Repeal and replace may actually happen.  What will it mean?… Continue Reading “Will Obamacare Repeal Really Leave 30 Million without Insurance?”

This Refugee Bill Could Win Republicans the Election…

Written by Daniel Horowitz

U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc. (F, 53%) has made it clear that if voters reelect his party, he will promote jailbreak legislation, the biggest priority of George Soros. Imagine if his party would instead run on protecting the security and sovereignty of the people by returning to the states the power over refugee resettlement?

Now, U.S. Representative Scott Perry, R-Pa. (C, 76%) has a bill to do just that.… Continue Reading “This Refugee Bill Could Win Republicans the Election…”
