What do you predict will happen with the debt ceiling?
I just love the “budget” discussion with Van Hollen and conservative Graves!
This was the FIRST time I ever saw Van Hollen so flustered it was a joy to watch! Must be like what happens when Fishtalk gets into the local politics..watch the fur fly!!!ha.
Obama thought that if he did not implement the employer mandate they would not take action to gear up for Obamacare before the 2014 election. Companies plan ahead and have begun to cut hours and employees and dump many into the exchanges. They are blaming Obamacare for this. This is happening right before the 2014 election and that is the last thing he wanted. I have noticed that CNN and other leftist media are not reporting a lot of what the companies are doing because of Obamacare so it is vital to get the word out and if possible have a long list of companies so they cannot say it is just a few.
Wayne La Pierre is schooling whats his name.
He was getting pretty snarky with Ted Cruz as well...
Hardly, go on a better and bigger offensive!
For me the alternative is to pick my battles.
We have about a dozen scandals that we can go after the regime on.
If done properly and we win on only a few of them we mortally wound the dems for the foreseeable future! At least for the next two election cycles. For me that's a more worthy agenda than trying to make someone who couldn't care less about the country,only polling numbers, do the right thing. I just don't see it happening.Yet I hope I am wrong. At the same time I totally understand the need to stand-up to these commie types. I just think we need to pick our battles a little bit better.
Both parties want to get rid of sequestration. I have a feeling that this will be a bargaining chip in these discussions with Obama getting increases in the non-defense portion of the budget and the Reps getting increases in the DOD budget. Just one year of $100 billion of sequester cuts is too much for both parties out of a total budget of $3.7 trillion budget.
David gregory follows wayne la pierre with some poor misguided woman who lost her daughter in aroura.
Once the house starts spitting out individual funding bills and Reid & cronies reject and defund the government, it becomes crystal clear who’s shutting it down. I think we win it.
We need to stop socialized medicine now. This is our last realistic chance. There is no alternative to the Cruz plan. So it’s time for us to fight like badgers.
Actually our nightmare here in Maine was initiated by friends of Hillary about the same time the rest of the USA rejected HillaryCare.
But you're right, all RATs want CommieCare.
-— Once the house starts spitting out individual funding bills and Reid & cronies reject and defund the government, it becomes crystal clear whos shutting it down. I think we win it. -—
Absolutely. It will take time to play out, but for once, time is on our side.
Robert Gibbs is such a spinmiester!! LOL
It is defined not for profit as are a large share of hospitals. I only mentioned it since Kookcinch said profit. Profit is a great means of forcing costs down as an invisible hand. Something DC does not like or understand.
Tavis Smiley can kiss my ***
What a concern troll.
He has moved on to his next profession, fundraising. He makes millions off of his PAC as well as his FOX gig.
Mastermind? Since when. Still basking in that Romney blowout he predicted and many of us fell for.
One thing I did get to see earlier this morning was Sharyl Atkisson from CBS on C-spam. She was awesome! A delight to see and hear!
She still has lots of questions for the regime most of which they are ducking hard and as fast as they can. She wants to know what Zero was doing while it all hit the fan, why the emphasis on the video and when did that (excuse") change and at the request of whom? She needs a better time line than what they have provided.She mentioned Issa in Egpyt which is a huge thing!He may have some input on the Morsi trial which may begin at the end of next month.It could spell impeachment for zero.
Atkisson also wants to know what options were available when TSHTF in Benghazi? Why was her computer hacked? why was she was threatened and once again where the hell was zero when all this went down?
I hope to see and hear more from Atkisson and soon,she's awesome.
Tavis Smiley makes an *** of himself yet again.
HGe Claims we oppose Obamacare only because we hate Obama and infers that we are only picking on him because he is (half) Black.
What one track doofus.
Rove threw out statistic of who do you trust with health care Dems 36 to Rep 21%. This is only significant if we know what the poll takers think the Reps will do. Do they think Reps are going to defund or continue with situation normal?
The Navy Yard discussion this morning is absent the fact that this guys name is Mohammed whatever and he’s a muzzie terrorist in hiding! No one mentions any of this.
Kurtz has a voice made for print media. He talks like he has a skull full of snot and a nose full of brains.
I have seen no proof to validate that.
The truth is the guy was a nut.
Likely a paranoid schizophrenic.
Real not for profits aren’t taxed nor do they give departing directors $5 million payments as part of a golden parachute. I just find the term misleading when it comes to healthcare insurance companies. Obamacare already contains provisions that try to limit the amount of profit insurance companies can make and how much they can spend on administrative costs including advertisement budgets.
Man, I haven’t even mentioned the car.
There my husband died 4/9/13. The funeral people tell me I must go to the dept of wills and such. But I must wait 30 days.
Now I don’t know why I must wait 30 days to get some piece of paper that will allow me to title the vehicle to my daughter, who was driving around in a piece of crap. It was a car over ten years old, paid for the day he bought it. Billy made sure I knew where the title was before he died. He wanted me to give it to Melissa.
Why couldn’t I title this car to my daughter on, say, 4/10? What was the gubmint doing telling me I must wait...no WAIT! the funeral people said 30 days but the will people said...too bad Ms. Fish, you are a day early, you must wait until TOMORROW, cannot retitle until THIRTY ONE days after death!
Nobody at the Czar of wills and shit knew the answer. I did a big write up on it and, of course, the head of the dept of wills is my Words With Pals friend and one staff member is in my choir.
I carried on bejeesus....WHY CAN’T I GIVE MY DEAD HUSBAND’S CAR TO MY DAUGHTER? WHY MUST I WAIT THIRTY ONE DAYS?
A lot of investigating and my choir member, who admires me greatly God love her, finds the answer.
It’s to appease the creditors. In other words, had my husband a car with some sort of lien on it, the 31 days gives that creditor time to file for their part of the dead person’s car.
Or something like that.
AND NONE OF THE BUREAUCRATS KNEW THE REASON! Only me, intrepid citizen reporter, got to the bottom of it.
Silly laws and silly rules control us all, folks.
and this Common Core....this is my NEXT mission.
This is Communism pure and simple.
I’m on it.
He’s already announced that he’s “retiring”, won’t run for re-election and has spent most of the time since that announcement posing as The Great Bringer of Federal Gifts while his office/website doesn’t act like they particularly care if anybody is even left alive in Montana. (Unless, I suppose, they’re Big Contributors and/or Known Reliable Votes.)
Between that attitude, the fact that absolutely no big name ‘rats have so much as raised the possibility that they’re even considering running in his place and the fact that Baucus has still got “his” 20Mill or so in campaign funds, I would pose the following:
1) He’s actually retiring, is leaving his successor up to the state party types and is just setting himself up for either the fattest K Street gig of all time or a prime ambassador job so he can be put on the same pedestal by the ‘rats as Mike Mansfield. In any case, he will do just exactly as he’s told.
2) This “retirement” is as phoney as Baucus, all he’s doing is posing as above the fray so he can ignore all us nasty rednecks while he keeps on running for another term in a stealth mode. (The Formal Announcement will probably come just before the deadline to file so opponents get blindsided...if he isn’t “allowed” to file even later.) Oh, yeah...In any case, he will do just exactly as he’s told.
Which to choose....
Well, I’m picking Door Number 2, just ‘cause that’s the only tactic they’ve not used lately and it just fits so well.
As far as the vote....In any case, he will do just exactly as he’s told.
New Tweet: Sarah Palin @SarahPalinUSA
@FoxNewsSunday Keep it TRULY fair & balanced. Release the GOP names encouraging you to trash @SenTedCruz. No more anonymous sources.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
We need entitlement reform sooner rather than later. These programs represent a $70 trillion unfunded liability and will consume more and more of the federal budget as 10,000 baby boomers a day retire over the next 20 years. And Obamacare will just hasten the process of bankrupting us.
Our glorious constitution allows almost unlimited protection for ANY politician who's ACTIONS represent the WILL of the people.
Filibusters SHOULD be rare...but, when the people are ON you side? They can be extremely effective.
ObamaCare was MADE for a filibuster!
I’ll join you in unending support for a guy who’s not afraid to punch
On Friday’s Rush’ show, the great Mark Steyn hosting, there was a caller who emigrated from the former Yugoslavia.
All communist countries have Obamacare. His comments were about his father, who was an obstetrician in Yugoslavia.
This gentleman’s comments reflect my own personal memories of life behind the Iron curtain. My father also was an obstetrician in Czechoslovakia, We escaped in 1966 and rived in the US in 1967.
The comments about patients bringing “gifts” to the doctor in order to insure a level of care above and beyond butchery resurrected my childhood memories.
Should Obamacare become intrenched we will have England’s healthcare or much worse.
On Sunday, Chris Wallace, the host of Fox News Sunday, said that Republicans in Washington were savaging Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) behind Cruz's back before Cruz's appearance on the program to discuss defunding Obamacare. In an appearance on Washington D.C.'s Fox 5 to preview his Sunday show, Wallace said, "I will tell you I have never in my time in Washington seen a party so upset with one of its own members."
He said he had been flooded with opposition research on Cruz--from Republicans. Later on Fox News Sunday, Wallace said these "top Republicans" gave him "unsolicited research and questions" to "hammer" Cruz.
"Since we announced that Ted Cruz was going to be on the show, I've been getting background research and questions going after Cruz not from Democrats but from other Republicans," Wallace said on Fox 5. "They really feel he has put them in this corner that they can't get out of gracefully and they're not very happy with him."
It's come to this :( I am NOT surprised...we've suspected AND expected this, of the GOPe, for some time.
Well how did that rube greenhorn Cruz Hornswaggle all those smart fellows? /s
Ted Cruz is showing me everyday that he is the right stuff.
I say we send the whiners home.
Budget Battle - Can A Filibuster Succeed? - Defund Obamacare - Ted Cruz (R-TX) On Fox News Sunday
The proof starts here,we are still uncovering who this guy really was.I don’t think its clear yet.
Here’s a snippet from the link above”
Navy Yard murderer Aaron Alexis created webpage with name “Mohammed Salem”
“Law enforcement officials told NBC News that Alexis created a webpage with the name “Mohammed Salem.” This is the first I am hearing of this, and have seen no media mention of it (although the fact that he had been a Buddhist has been headlined and recounted numerous times, despite the fact is that there is no compulsion to violence, oppression and ethnic cleansing in the teachings of Buddhism).
It is striking that he would create a page “Mohammed Salem.” Perhaps as he became more violent, he identified with the homicidal doctrine of jihad. I do not expect the jihad-aligned media to look into this aspect of the case.
Clearly, Muslim Brotherhood groups were concerned that it was jihad. Hamas-CAIR canceled a press conference on Tuesday that was going to expose the funding of the “islamophobia” industry. What funding? I mean, really. And devout Muslims cheered and suggested responsibility for the Navy Yard shooting that killed 13. And many jihadists “expressed their joy” that the Nazy shooting was a response to Muslim leader Ayman al-Zawahiri ‘s strikes in America.”
Something tells me there will be more.
Then of course there is this,sort of a corollary to the story,inquiring minds wanting to know why armed law enforcement types in the area, were ordered to stand down?
Here’s a BBC links and the accompanying clip.
“Multiple sources in the Capitol Police department have told the BBC that its highly trained and heavily armed four-man Containment and Emergency Response Team (Cert) was near the Navy Yard when the initial report of an active shooter came in about 8:20 local time.
The officers, wearing full tactical gear and armed with HK-416 assault weapons, arrived outside Building 197 a few minutes later, an official with knowledge of the incident told the BBC.
‘A different outcome’
According to a Capitol Police source, an officer with the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), Washington DC’s main municipal force, told the Capitol Cert officers they were the only police on the site equipped with long guns and requested their help stopping the gunman.
Continue reading the main story
Odds are it might have had a different outcome
Jim Konczos Capitol Police Officer
When the Capitol Police team radioed their superiors, they were told by a watch commander to leave the scene, the BBC was told.
The gunman, Aaron Alexis, was reported killed after 09:00.
Several Capitol Police sources who spoke to the BBC asked to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal.”
Once again there may be a lot more to this story it smells so far.
Exactly when did Chris Wallace earn any status as a Reliable Source of Information about ANYTHING????
If that doofus came on and declared that the sun rose in the East, I’d be up at dawn to confirm that for myself.
(Spit on the ground and walk away...)
You make a really good point. The big question however is this the right issue and the right time. It’s true however that if enough people get on this new give away it will be near impossible to get rid of,they all are.
This message brought to you by The British Dental Association.
Yes we all know about the stupid web page that he created and never used.
The guy was a nut.
The problem is the media is never going to cover these scandals. They are going to cover this shutdown which gives us a soapbox to tell the people what is wrong with Obamacare. It is the Tea Party against the Ruling Class.
If you are going to tackle “Common Core” pleae keep us apprised! This is a national issue and spells doom for the schools.
The whole thing scares me to death. There is no way to pay for it all.I see a dollar worth very little in ten years unless common sense steps in and fast.
Oh RG....I am so in to this. Since you gave me an opening, my Delaware column, below, begins my quest against Common Core. I now belong to a conservative organization called Campaign for Liberty, ran by Ron Paul of all people.
This group is about to begin an all out assault against this nonsense.
Read my column below because you got to know what data they will be mining from our children.
and it goes downhill from there.
Barking Dogs, Another Sussex Unelected Bureaucrat to Control Our Lives; Common Core, Communism in our Schools.
I guess that Tweet is in response to that statement.
Man, is she ever walking forward while punching.
She must sense weakness in the air...LOL
Cruz has a “Shield” similar in composition to the one protecting 0bama.
If the MSM crack Cruz’s shield, they reveal the method to crack and destroy 0bama’s Shield.
I heard it some great radio. Of course Steyn is so good you don’t want to miss a moment.
I think the end result of obamcare,should it flourish, will be insurance companies that fund customers that have offshore medical care done, little here in the U.S.
Rep Griffin (RINO-AR), Sen Corker and Rep Peter King (RINO-NY) have, once again, shown their true establishment colors. Shame on them for being the non-opposition party of SURRENDER..to BIG $$!
