Paul Ryan’s Gargantuan Spending Bill Shows that Lobbyists Run Washington

This is how they get things done in Washington. Lobbyists basically write legislation giving their respective special interests massive financial benefits, and they get legislators to sign on by telling them that there’s no time to debate it or even read it. It’s an emergency. “If you don’t vote for this bill, then you’ll be responsible for shutting down the government.” Paul Ryan may as well have echoed Nancy Pelosi when she said that they had to pass the bill to find out what was in Read more […]

Introducing Paul Ryan Boehner the Second

Paul Ryan is our new John Boehner. He just proved that by overseeing the latest $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill which gained widespread bipartisan support and flew through both houses of Congress. Ryan might actually be worse than Boehner. People knew Boehner was a rat traitor. They don’t know that about Ryan yet, so he was able to father this monstrosity of a spending bill largely uncontested. Here’s hoping he won’t remain uncontested. Republicans have a majority in the House and Read more […]

Ted Cruz says GOP Leaders Approach “Every Battle Pre-Emptively Surrendering”

The House Budget Committee advanced a GOP reconciliation bill Friday that would unravel major components of the Affordable Care Act and temporarily stop Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funds. “Together, this package will dismantle many of the key elements of Obamacare that are harming individuals and families, hurting job creation and spending taxpayer dollars on programs with little to no congressional oversight,” said Republican Rep. Tom Price, chairman of the Budget Committee. The Read more […]

Boehner Getting Worried – Delays Vote to Replace Him as Speaker

Speaker of the House John Boehner announced Monday the elections for majority leader and whip will no longer be held on Oct. 8. While Republicans will have a closed-door vote on who they will nominate for speaker of the House Thursday, the entire chamber won’t vote on Boehner’s replacement until Oct. 29.

Three GOP Candidates Take a Stand Against Cronyism in the Government

Three GOP Presidential candidates are taking a stand against crony capitalism, opposing the Overseas Private Investment Corporation. More than 40 years old, OPIC has been lambasted by critics as a shining example of corporate welfare. OPIC’s functions closely mirror those of the Export-Import Bank, which recently became a prime target for free market Republicans. Thanks to a rebellion against the GOP establishment, including House Speaker John Boehner, Ex-Im’s charter was allowed to expire Read more […]

Thank You for Leaving, John Boehner

According to Breitbart, anonymous sources tell them that outgoing Speaker of the House John Boehner (feels good to write that) allegedly “struck a deal” with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi that would help the Democrats pass the budget, fund Planned Parenthood, and avoid a shutdown. Breitbart reports: “Boehner reportedly knew that cutting such a deal to avoid a shutdown would result in a brutal battle with conservatives in his own party. He felt he could win challenges to his leadership mounted Read more […]

John Boehner to Resign Before Halloween … What Should We Expect Next?

Speaker of the House John Boehner has finally decided to resign after about four years as the Republican leader of the House of Representatives. His departure has elicited a mixed reaction. Many establishment (moderate) Republicans and Democrats have expressed sadness over the breach in the GOP, while more hardline conservatives have been unabashedly rejoicing. But one thing is for sure, the fact that Boehner is resigning indicates a major rift in the GOP. Establishment Republicans accuse Tea Read more […]

House Conservatives Lead Fight Against John Boehner

Last week conservative congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) undertook what may be the most important thing he’s ever done in Washington. Meadows is attempting to unseat John Boehner (R-OH) as Speaker of the House. Boehner has presided over one of the most abusive (against conservatives) sessions of Republican leadership in Congress in recent history. The GOP owns strong majorities in both the Senate and the House, yet most of the legislation passing through both chambers seems more akin to Democrat Read more […]

Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi Fighting Over Abortion Language in Bipartisan Bills!

It’s not often that we see Democrat leaders fighting over abortion. They’re usually trying to prove how much they all love murdering babies but not this time. This time Nancy Pelosi is trying to convince everyone she loves abortion while also advancing a bill that contains language that has become standard for certain bills. However, Harry Reid doesn’t like the idea of including the so-called Hyde Amendment language in the bipartisan human trafficking and Obamacare “doc-fix” bills and so he’s threatening Read more […]

Democrats Playing Guard Dog for Jellyfish Boehner

Why would Democrats agree to protect the Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, from his opponents in the GOP? That’s a really good question. Perhaps this explains it a little: A number of right-wing Republicans, long wary of Boehner’s commitment to GOP efforts attacking President Obama’s policy priorities, have openly considered a coup in an attempt to transfer the gavel into more conservative hands. But Democrats from across an ideological spectrum say they’d rather see Boehner Read more […]
