    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...

    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,...

    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.

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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.

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...

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.

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....

That’s a U.S. congressman, yes. From Georgia. Broun might as well have claimed that he had been abducted by aliens and appointed queen of their planet Bogusia. It’s a claim with just as much basis in fact as what he actually said, and it probably wouldn’t have done more damage to what remained of Broun’s credibility.

"It may sound a bit crazy and off base, but the thing is, he's the one who proposed this national security force," Rep. Paul Broun said of Obama in an interview Monday with The Associated Press. "I'm just trying to bring attention to the fact that we may -- may not, I hope not -- but we may have a problem with that type of philosophy of radical socialism or Marxism." Watch out,...

    His positions. FAIRTAX America desperately needs tax reform. The current income tax code is so complex that even the IRS does not understand it. Our so-called progressive income tax punishes individual success. NATIONALSECURITY As a young man, I had a strong desire to serve in the military. The day that I became a U.S. Marine was one of the proudest days of my life. Later, I also served as a Navy medical officer. As a Marine, I took an oath to defend the United States. Keeping that oath is a sacred obligation.

    Last July, Paul Broun shocked Georgia pundits when the poorly funded physician narrowly defeated a longtime legislative leader in a GOP primary for a special election in an overwhelmingly Republican U.S. House seat. Party grandees were convinced Dr. Broun's victory was a fluke and this year backed a challenge from state Rep. Barry Fleming, who hails from the district's population center of Augusta. Mr. Fleming promptly raised nearly $1 million and proceeded to throw the kitchen sink at Dr. Broun, including mailers chiding him for failing to bring home earmarks for the district. Well, Dr. Broun will be going back...

    April 25, 2008 Atlanta Journal Constitution Washington - Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga., has introduced a bill to prohibit the sale of "sexually explicit" material at military installations. "Our troops should not see their honor sullied so that the moguls behind magazines like Playboy and Penthouse can profit," Broun said in a statement. Broun said his bill, titled "The Military Honor and Decency Act," is needed to close a loophole in current law that allows the sale and rental of sexually explicit material on military bases both in the United States and abroad. "Allowing the sale of pornography on military bases...

    Two ultra-conservative right-wingers. One open seat for the House of Representatives. By Sarah Twombly (more from this author) 7/17/2007, 12:02 PM From coast-to-coast, the Republican Party is engaged in an angst-ridden identity crisis -- rejecting President Bush's policies like a bad kidney, while desperately seeking a leader who can chew gum and not commit an act of corruption at the same time. Everywhere, Republicans are questioning their purpose. Well, that is, everywhere except Georgia's 10th District, where voters are going to the polls today in a special election to fill the seat vacated by the untimely death of Rep. Charlie...

Military and overseas ballot must arrive by Friday to be counted in the race. The secretary of state must then certify the results within 14 days. If Marlow trails Broun by a margin of...
