GOP House Members to Preview Fall Election Program in August Recess

Look for a Town Hall meeting in your area!

Last year's August recess didn't go well for Democrats. They went home to try and sell Obama Care to their constituents and instead got an earful in meeting after meeting. I doubt we will see the same intensity on display this year as I doubt many Democrats will be holding large public meetings with their constituents.

Republicans don't have to hide.

In House GOP Leader John Boehner's interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, Wallace brought up the outline of House GOP plans for this summer's recess. The booklet "Tread Boldly -- Solutions, Hard Work and No Regrets" put together by House Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence, is available to readers by clicking here for the PDF.

The document reads like a preview for the fall election. Top issues Republicans will stress during this break include:

 Washington Democrats are poised to allow the largest tax increase in American history to take effect next year. It could be a $3.8 trillion increase, and will increase taxes in every bracket.

 The president’s stimulus bill remains a failure 17 months after it passed. Since it was signed into law, the economy lost about 3 million jobs (2.4 million net loss).

 Unemployment was at 9.5% nationally for June, nearly 15 million Americans are out of work, and Democrats in Washington are out of ideas. The July unemployment report is due out on August 6.

I want Republicans to start talking solutions. Start endorsing Paul Ryan's Roadmap, for starters instead of running away from it. Start outlining the federal depts that should be completely abolished (Dept of Ed, Homeland Security), privatized (FDA), end of subsidies (ethanol and "green" jobs crap) or consolidated (federal law agencies like the FBI, ATF, DEA, U.S. Marshals rolled into one federal law enforcement agency). Announce that all illegals will be deported, the border will be militarized, existing immigration laws enforced, and the citizenship of children born to illegals after the 1986 amnesty will be voided.

Then I want a full, complete investigation into this corrupt, filthy, POS Chicago sewer that is the Obama administration. A complete background check of who Obama really is, where was he born, and who the Hell funded his 2008 campaign.

Tell the states to balance their own budgets - NO BAILOUT!
Abolish all foreign aid except to Israel, SK, and Taiwan.
Repeal Obamacare - I don't want to "make it better", I don't want to "conservatize" it - I want it completely scrapped and shredded.

End all non-military operations in the Middle East by the end of the year; end all military operations by June 30th of next year. Bring the troops home, fund a War on Terrorism memorial in Arlington, and give all returning veterans a fully-funded pension.

Until Republicans start talking these solutions, then it's just more rearranging the deck chairs on the you-know-what.
