Darrell Issa , Mike Rogers and John Boehner all talk the talk, but refuse to walk the walk, - - - - they are not good for America.
They all whine and moan about being stonewalled by the Commie Obama Administration, but NOTHING effective happens, except for the formation of the Benghazi Committee under Trey Gowdy.
The House RINOs had their chance for OVER FOUR YEARS and have done NOTHING, proving that they are not good for America, PERIOD!
It is time to mow down the not good in the House, ASAP!
* Encourage your Rep in the US House to force Boehner to resign, before August 1, 2014.
* Encourage your House Rep in the US House to force do-nothing Chairmen such as Issa and Mike Rogers to resign, before Labor Day, 2014.
* Encourage your House Rep in the US House to publicly support Republicans who have proven that they have placed Country before Party.
While the RINOs may get re-elected to the House, we need to have them as far removed from any leadership role as possible.
The RINOs have failed to even slow down the Obamanation of America, even though they held the power of the purse for four years.
If a RINO cannot be voted out of office, then he/she must be relegated to a position subordinate to a fire-in-the-belly Conservative Republican Representative such as Trey Gowdy.
Early Primary voting begins soon after Labor Day in many States.
Most voters have made up their minds about who to vote for by Labor Day: Tick-tock, FReepers, Tick-TOCK!
I am not sure what 'conservative' groups oppose this. Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution states that Congress shall have the power
To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations.
That doesn't limit the Congress to tarriffs...it can encourage commerce.
I'm not sure which 'conservative' groups say that the private sector can do this...for very large projects (refineries, nuclear plants, hydroelectric plants) there is no way the the private sector can front $10 billion or so
A loan is not a donation.
Loans are repaid (with interest).
It is an investment of taxpayer money to make more money.
Al Gore would have nothing to do with refineries, nuclear power or hydro electric plants.
That's not regulating commerce. What clause in the Constitution authorizes such "investments"?
"The Club for Growth, Heritage Action, and other conservative groups have launched campaigns calling for it to shut down. In the House, the powerful House Financial Services Committee Chair Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) has led the charge against reauthorization." - http://www.businessinsider.com/export-import-bank-reauthorization-fight-2014-6

Yeah, just like the GM Bailout, right? You need to understand that the government “NEVER MAKES A PROFIT ANYWHERE!” The “PROFIT” always ends up in the bureaucrats pockets. I mean look at a the VA, everyone gets bonuses while the vets die waiting for an appointment with an EFFING Doctor! And look at California’s “high speed rail project.” If this were a good business opportunity, private enterprise would be doing it w/o the government. All “private enterprise” will do here is pad their contracts and steal from their fellow citizens and we CA taxpayers will be left with huge bonded indebtedness, and more spending to subsidize a train that will give the illegal Mexican far workers transportation up and down our Central Valley as the move from crop to crop! Yeah, having government in the “investment business” is a really good idea, not!
