    The mushrooming Veterans Affairs scandal is indicative of the Obama administration's "disdain" for the military, U.S. Rep. Paul Broun of Georgia believes. "This administration seems to have a disdain, maybe even a hatred for the military, as well as our veterans," Broun told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newmax TV. "Just from the military perspective, I was talking … to a three-star Army general. He didn't have enough rounds of ammunition for his troops to go out to the rifle range and just requalify with their rifles." "I've talked to pilots who don't have enough fuel for their helicopters, their...
  • Seven Candidates Vie for the 10th in Monroe Debate

    In a field that already has six candidates — Lt. Colonel Stephen Simpson, businessman Mike Collins, pastor Jody Hice, state Rep. Donna Sheldon and Brian Slowinski —, attendees of the Monroe 10th Congressional debate on Tuesday were introduced to a seventh: former U.S. Marine Mitchell Swan, who only recently entered a race that the others have been in for months. There wasn’t even standing room left for those who arrived late. Jody Hice, who hails from the area, held a barbeque behind the event’s location for his supporters. Politics and barbeque are an undeniably popular pairing in the Peach State,...
  • The Chamber’s Uncanny Ultimatum

    Tom Donohue, President of the Chamber of Commerce, made news yesterday when he said that if Republicans fail to pass amnesty they shouldn’t even bother fielding a presidential candidate. The media is reporting Donohue’s statement as an ultimatum to the GOP – pass amnesty or lose our support. However, there is one slight problem that has been overlooked by the media. The Chamber has been dumping large sums of money into candidates who would not be caught dead backing amnesty on the campaign trail. In fact, many of them are running against amnesty. Here is a breakdown of Chamber spending...

    Late last month, a SurveyUSA poll for an Atlanta television station put establishment Republican congressman Jack Kingston in front of fringe tea-party favorite Republican congressman Paul Broun by eight percentage points in the race for Georgia’s open U.S. Senate seat. On Friday, though, Kingston stood to lose that ground, as both he and Broun released campaign commercials featuring fake telephone calls.
  • Poll shows Broun comfortably at front of GOP Senate field

    Georgia Republican Congressman Paul Broun, whose 10th District seat includes much of the Athens area, has a considerable lead in the crowded GOP field seeking their party’s nomination to run for the U.S. Senate, according to a recent survey by left-leaning Public Policy Polling. The survey, commissioned by progressive advocacy group Better Georgia, also shows Broun in a dead heat with Michelle Nunn, Democratic frontrunner for her party’s nomination to seek the Senate seat in the November general election. Broun’s numbers in that matchup are better than the rest of the GOP field. With primary balloting a little more than...
  • Tea party group backs Broun in Georgia Senate race

    Rep. Paul Broun has landed the first endorsement from a national tea party group in the crowded Georgia GOP Senate primary, with the nascent Madison Project set to back his candidacy Tuesday. In its endorsement, which was shared early with Post Politics, the group says Broun has been the House's fiercest conservative, bar none. "...few come to the ankles of Paul Broun in terms of a proven commitment to constitutional governance," the group will say in a release. "It is not an exaggeration to say that Congressman Paul Broun has sustained the most conservative voting record over the longest period...
  • The BOLD Republican Plan for Health Care (not the Hatch, Coburn, and Burr bill)

    01/29/2014 5:45:23 PM PST · by TurboZamboni · 7 replies
    The OPTION Act is a bold health care plan. Authored Congressman Paul Broun, M.D. (R-GA), the "Offering Patients True Individualized Options Now Act of 2013" - H.R. 2900 - is an exciting 77-page proposal to repeal Obamacare and change the entire landscape of American health care. It would reintroduce freedom. The OPTION Act eliminates Medicare, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program --- and the entire Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Yes. All gone. In its place is private coverage and provisions to encourage and expand private charity. As Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians...

    I am looking at the people running to replace Saxby Chambliss in 2014. Can anyone from GA tell me anything about Broun and Gingrey? Are there others running? I live in Kingston's district, so I know some about him, although we just moved here in 2011. Looking to support the candidate with the best conservative credentials so we don't get another democrat-lite senator. We need to improve our conservative odds this time around. Is there a GA "family values organization" that puts out the voting records of the people who are already in the House, as they do pre-election in...

    Citizens United is endorsing Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) in the crowded Georgia Senate primary. The nod from the conservative group will give the Tea Party favorite a boost — and establishment Republicans new reason to be concerned about the race. Establishment Republicans have publicly fretted about Broun winning the primary, fearing he might not be the party's best candidate in a general election. The congressman regularly refers to President Obama as a socialist and communist, and has said evolution and the big bang theories are lies "from the pit of hell."

    The messy politics of the Republican primary for Georgia’s open Senate seat has steamrolled its way into the Capitol. The unruly race is roiling the state’s House delegation and causing problems for the GOP leadership. Rep. Paul Broun — the only announced candidate to replace retiring Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss — is yanking much of the congressional delegation to the right and throwing their votes and the support of leadership into a daily flux. The problem: There are four House Republicans interested in the Senate seat. But the Peach State delegation and GOP leaders say they have no idea what...

    Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) boasted in a fundraising letter that he was the first member of Congress to call President Obama a “socialist who embraces Marxist-Leninist policies,” according to text acquired by the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “As a Member of the House of Representatives for the last few years, I have fought tooth-and-nail against President Obama's agenda at every turn,” the letter reads in part. “I was the first Member of Congress to call him a socialist who embraces Marxist-Leninist policies like government control of health care and redistribution of wealth.” Broun, who is running to fill the Georgia Senate...

    Harper Polling has just cut loose its first poll in Georgia’s 2014 race for U.S. Senate, showing three Republican members of Congress in a tight bunch: In the Republican primary election for the open seat of Senator Saxby Chambliss, the race is wide open. The field is stacked with Members of Congress. In a state with 14 congressional districts, a Congressman’s statewide name identification is low and his support is confined early on to his district. However, if the field has 6 credible candidates, 35% could win the primary. Congressmen Paul Broun, Phil Gingrey, Tom Price, and Jack Kingston are...

    Karl Rove may be trying to quell conservative concerns that his new political group is really an effort to crush the tea party. But actions will speak louder than words – and already, Mr. Rove's group may have a test case on its hands. Rove's Conservative Victory Project has a stated goal of making sure only electable candidates emerge victorious from GOP primaries. But he told Fox News Tuesday: "This is not tea party versus the establishment." So what is it? The campaign of Rep. Paul Broun (R) of Georgia, who on Wednesday filed paperwork to run for the seat...

    Tea party favorite Paul Broun, who has served in the House of Representatives since 2007, is expected to announce a run to take Saxby Chambliss’ seat in the U.S. Senate. He is due to make a formal announcement Wednesday afternoon at Atlanta’s Grand Hyatt Hotel. Chambliss announced last month that he will not run for a third term, after tea party threats that the group would put up candidates to run against him in a Republican primary. Since getting to Congress, Broun, 66, a general practice physician, has been an outspoken critic of many current federal policies. For example, he...

    Few members of Congress have taken the task of cutting federal spending as personally as Rep. Paul Broun. Whether it’s going after the USDA’s vehicle fleet or weeding out the budget for the U.S. Botanic Garden, the Georgia Republican has been all over it. But for all the cries in the Republican House to tighten the money belt, Broun has gotten practically nowhere. The vast majority of Broun’s attempts to trim this line item or that pet project have gone down — often in flames. Since the start of the 112th Congress, he has offered more than three dozen amendments....

Paul Broun, R-Ga., says he doesn't know if President Obama is a "citizen." Broun's comments came this week in an interview with host Pete Dominick on Sirius XM radio: He responded, "I'm not going to get involved in that," at first when he was asked if he thinks the president is an "American citizen and a Christian." But he responded, "I don't know," when pressed over whether he thinks Obama is a citizen. "Is he a Christian?"...

    Three House Republicans are scheduled to hold a press conference on Wednesday morning to "make public a national security threat on Capitol Hill." Reps. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.), John Shadegg (R-Ariz.) and Paul Broun (R-Ga.) will hold a 10 a.m. press conference in the Capitol on the homeland security issue. The congressional daybook schedule does not provide further details. According to a source familiar with the issue, the press conference will focus on a non-profit group that has "known terrorist ties."
