Republicans Must Stop Putting The Tea Party Ahead Of America’s Economy
United States Senate Democrats ^ | 3/26/12 | Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid

Posted on 03/26/2012 12:28:28 PM PDT by mdittmar

Washington, D.C.Nevada Senator Harry Reid spoke on the Senate floor today regarding the transportation jobs bill and legislation to repeal subsidies for big oil companies raking in record profits. Below are his remarks as prepared for delivery:

Tens of thousands of bridges and millions of miles of roadways across the country are in a state of disrepair.

But, rather than putting Americans to work fixing those roads and bridges – and repairing crumbling train tracks, highways and sidewalks across the nation – House Republican leaders are pandering to the Tea Party.

As if putting the Tea Party ahead of efforts to repair our nation’s crumbling infrastructure wasn’t bad enough, House Republicans are risking 2.8 million jobs in the process.

I was disappointed to hear last week that House Republican leaders will pursue a three-month extension of the Highway Bill. They should be voting on the two-year transportation bill passed on an overwhelming, bipartisan vote by the Senate.

Their short-term Band-Aid bill is no solution. Communities and contractors need certainty – especially going into the summer construction season – that their projects won’t grind to a halt in three months because the House once again refuses to act.

The American people will know who to blame if chaos in the House Republican caucus costs us almost 3 million jobs. One week remains until thousands of projects around the country lock their gates and lay off their workers.

It is time for House Republican leaders to do the responsible thing: take up the Senate-passed transportation bill, which is strongly supported by Senate Republicans.

The American people are watching, and time is wasting.

While House Republicans are squandering precious time and risking American jobs, the Senate will move forward with a bill to repeal billions in subsidies to big oil companies.

Last year, Big Oil raked in $137 billion in profits – more than ever before – but still received billions in taxpayers-funded giveaways.

Even with domestic oil production at its highest level in almost a decade, prices at the pump are rising.

Oil companies are making money hand over fist. When the price of a gallon of gas goes up by a single penny, quarterly profits for the five major oil companies go up by $200 million.

Yet this country continues to give taxpayer dollars to some of the most profitable corporations in the world – corporations that don’t need our help. It’s time to end this careless corporate welfare.

The only real way to bring down prices at the pump is to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil. That will take additional responsible, domestic oil exploration anhgd smart investments in clean energy technology.

The Senate will vote this evening to advance the Repeal Big Oil Tax Subsidies Act.

This legislation ends more than $2 billion a year in tax breaks for Big Oil. And it invests the savings in the clean energy industry, where it will grow our economy and create jobs.

Repealing wasteful subsidies won’t cause oil and gas prices to rise. But reducing America’s dependence on foreign oil will cause prices to fall.

I hope my Republican colleagues will join Senate Democrats and repeal subsidies for Big Oil. It is time we worked together to move this nation toward its clean energy future.

But if Republicans continue to stand up for oil companies making record profits, one thing will be obvious: Republicans care less about bringing down gas prices than about helping big oil companies that don’t need the help.

Congress should pass this legislation quickly, before another taxpayer dollar is spent on wasteful handouts to Big Oil.

The Senate must also move quickly to reform our postal system. And in the coming weeks the Senate must reauthorize of the Violence Against Women Act, pass additional job creation measures and take up a crucial cybersecurity bill.

The Pentagon says passing cybersecurity legislation is the single most important action Congress can take to improve national security. That’s why I will bring a bill to the floor very soon.

Bipartisan efforts to craft comprehensive cybersecurity legislation have been ongoing for several years, but the time to act is now.

It is time for Republican colleagues who have been involved in this effort from the start to sit down at the negotiating table and help us settle on a final approach. The next few weeks will set the path ahead.

Both parties agree this legislation is a priority. And Senators interested in getting involved should act now, before time runs out.

As always, I hope Democrats and Republicans will be able to work together to forge a path forward.

Harry Reid, the day you tell Republicans what to do will be a.;....incidentally, WTH are you doing in Utah? NSA Is Building the Country’s Biggest Spy Center (Watch What You Say) •By James Bamford Email Author March 15, 2012 | 7:24 pm | The NSA has become the largest, most covert, and potentially most intrusive intelligence agency ever. Under construction by contractors with top-secret clearances, the blandly named Utah Data Center is being built for the National Security Agency. A project of immense secrecy, it is the final piece in a complex puzzle assembled over the past decade. Its purpose: to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast swaths of the world’s communications as they zap down from satellites and zip through the underground and undersea cables of international, foreign, and domestic networks. The heavily fortified $2 billion center should be up and running in September 2013. Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails—parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital “pocket litter.” It is, in some measure, the realization of the “total information awareness” program created during the first term of the Bush administration—an effort that was killed by Congress in 2003 after it caused an outcry over its potential for invading Americans’ privacy. ----------------------------------------------------- Sitting in a restaurant not far from NSA headquarters, the place where he spent nearly 40 years of his life, Binney held his thumb and forefinger close together. “We are, like, that far from a turnkey totalitarian state,” he says. There is still one technology preventing untrammeled government access to private digital data: strong encryption. Anyone—from terrorists and weapons dealers to corporations, financial institutions, and ordinary email senders—can use it to seal their messages, plans, photos, and documents in hardened data shells. For years, one of the hardest shells has been the Advanced Encryption Standard, one of several algorithms used by much of the world to encrypt data. Available in three different strengths—128 bits, 192 bits, and 256 bits—it’s incorporated in most commercial email programs and web browsers and is considered so strong that the NSA has even approved its use for top-secret US government communications. Most experts say that a so-called brute-force computer attack on the algorithm—trying one combination after another to unlock the encryption—would likely take longer than the age of the universe. For a 128-bit cipher, the number of trial-and-error attempts would be 340 undecillion (1036). Breaking into those complex mathematical shells like the AES is one of the key reasons for the construction going on in Bluffdale. That kind of cryptanalysis requires two major ingredients: super-fast computers to conduct brute-force attacks on encrypted messages and a massive number of those messages for the computers to analyze. The more messages from a given target, the more likely it is for the computers to detect telltale patterns, and Bluffdale will be able to hold a great many messages. “We questioned it one time,” says another source, a senior intelligence manager who was also involved with the planning. “Why were we building this NSA facility? And, boy, they rolled out all the old guys—the crypto guys.” According to the official, these experts told then-director of national intelligence Dennis Blair, “You’ve got to build this thing because we just don’t have the capability of doing the code-breaking.” It was a candid admission. In the long war between the code breakers and the code makers—the tens of thousands of cryptographers in the worldwide computer security industry—the code breakers were admitting defeat. So the agency had one major ingredient—a massive data storage facility—under way. Meanwhile, across the country in Tennessee, the government was working in utmost secrecy on the other vital element: the most powerful computer the world has ever known. The plan was launched in 2004 as a modern-day Manhattan Project------------------------------------------------- The NSA believes it’s on the verge of breaking a key encryption algorithm—opening up hoards of data. That, he notes, is where the value of Bluffdale, and its mountains of long-stored data, will come in. What can’t be broken today may be broken tomorrow. “Then you can see what they were saying in the past,” he says. “By extrapolating the way they did business, it gives us an indication of how they may do things now.” The danger, the former official says, is that it’s not only foreign government information that is locked in weaker algorithms, it’s also a great deal of personal domestic communications, such as Americans’ email intercepted by the NSA in the past decade. But first the supercomputer must break the encryption, and to do that, speed is everything. The faster the computer, the faster it can break codes. The Data Encryption Standard, the 56-bit predecessor to the AES, debuted in 1976 and lasted about 25 years. Yottabytes and exaflops, septillions and undecillions—the race for computing speed and data storage goes on. In his 1941 story “The Library of Babel,” Jorge Luis Borges imagined a collection of information where the entire world’s knowledge is stored but barely a single word is understood. In Bluffdale the NSA is constructing a library on a scale that even Borges might not have contemplated. And to hear the masters of the agency tell it, it’s only a matter of time until every word is illuminated. James Bamford (washwriter@gmail.com) is the author of The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America. “The line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either, but right through every human heart.” Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn "Silence in the face of evil is itself evil; God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act." Dietrich Bonhoeffer "Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not keep silent; for I am with you, and no one will attack you to hurt you; for I have many people in this city." (Acts 18:9-10) "No man survives when freedom fails The best men rot in filthy jails And those who cry 'appease, appease' Are hanged by those they tried to please." ~ Hiram Mann New | Reply Reply all Forward | Delete Junk Sweep ▼ Mark as ▼ Move to ▼ Categories ▼ | Ad feedback| © 2012 Microsoft Terms Privacy About our ads Advertise Developers Help Center Feedback English

I’ve literally spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on road taxes in my 40+ years of driving and purchasing gasoline.

The money was obviously spent on other government programs.

Dear Senator Reid,

Over 1,200 days and counting without a budget from you, as required by law. So why don’t you get busy and submit a budget instead of yammering about Americans lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights.

Harry has always been obsessed with the Tea Party, more than anyone else.

Because he knows if the Republicans ever should actually become the standard-bearers of Conservatism, he’s finished.

As it is, he knows the wussie Bohner kind of Republican is no different than members of his own party, maybe easier to control than some...

The reason “millions of miles of roadways across the country are in a state of disrepair” is because a criminal government has been looting the system for decades.

The Tea Party is about capitalism.

"Obama's and Reid's America" is about socialism.

It is easy for me to decide about which direction I want to go in.

USA, make up your mind.

Prosperity or poverty.

This legislation ends more than $2 billion a year in tax breaks for Big Oil.

LMFAO! the US uses 19.5 million bbl/day. That's 7.1 billion bbl/year. This $2 billion will reduce the price of oil by $0.28. Given a ratio of $4 gas/$100 oil we can expect gas to decline by $0.011 per gallon. Nice work Harry you idiot.

The reason we HAVE any economic issues is that the Tea Party issues no longer are represented at the Federal Gov’mt.

Almost all the accumulated wealth in the USA...was accumulated from decades prior to the Revolutionary War through the establishment of Welfare state in the mid-20th century.

Since then the “accumulation “ has reversed with the establishment and growth of the welfare state- an ideology to which Reid is an adherent.

It is all so really unnecessary, it is sad.

What again was that $780 BILLION stimulus for... oh, yes.. those "shovel-ready jobs" that... weren't.

Harry needs to go to "the home" now. His usefulness has long expired.

Harry Reid is so full of shyt it isn’t funny.

If we take away all of the oil company subsidy’s(actually legal tax deductions)we will take 4 billion dollars away from the oil companies and add that 4 billion dollars to the taxpayers who will pay more for oil, and we still won’t get those roads rebuilt.

Harry Reid believe Americans are stupid, and the democrat half is. They put this chunk of foot scrapings in office.

“We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debt, as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our calling and our creeds...[we will] have no time to think, no means of calling our miss-managers to account but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers... And this is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle in one instance becomes a precedent for [another]... till the bulk of society is reduced to be mere automatons of misery... And the fore-horse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

Dingy,

Fold it so it has many corners and put it where the sun don’t shine. Oil is high because you and your fellow dimbos have horked the economy so bad, the dollar is worth the paper it is printed on. Since oils is traded in dollars, it takes more of them to buy a barrel.

The tea party, read the American people NOT taking handouts but actually providing them in usurious taxes, wants what it wants. That being smaller government, less government intervention in American life, and a full expression of the American Experiment (It’s about liberty stupid!).

Get a clue you useless waste of space!

Yeah, Harry. We remember the $900 billion Porkulus package which was passed during ObaMao's first days in office. Where did most of that money go? We saw a few gaudy road signs and a little roadwork here in the Pittsburgh area, about as much as we do in a normal year.

Of course, we understand that we're low priority because there aren't many donors outside a few rich nitwits in Allegheny County.

Republicans Must Stop Putting The Tea Party Ahead Of America’s Economy

This from the leader of the party who bought himself reelection by massive infusions of taxpayer cash; who locked all opposition from the legislative process for years; who had no problem putting the liberal "food stamp" party ahead of America's cultural and financial health.

Democrats Must Stop Putting The Destruction Of America, Its Institutions and the vast majority of working taxpaying Americans ahead of the "transformation" of America!

That’s hilarious that he thinks the Republicans are putting the Tea Party ahead of everything else. If that was truly the case, then the pro-gay rights, pro-abortion, and pro-gun grabbing Romney wouldn’t have so much support. I don’t see a lot of Republican members of Congress endorsing Romney’s opponents.
