  • The Democratic Proposal to Tax Financial Transactions Show They Have No Idea What They Are Doing

    Senator Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) and Representative Peter DeFazio (D-Oregon) are set to propose a tax on financial transactions similar to what is being proposed in Europe (as if that lends them any support). It is being marketed by the folks behind it as very small, so small that Tom Harkin bets that "nobody would even feel it". Statements like that further convince me that he has absolutely zero knowledge of the financial world, not surprising given that he has had a total of 2 years of private sector experience (practicing law 37 years ago after he lost a Congressional election)...
  • Liberal Oregon Rep. Peter DeFazio says Obama lacks will to fight

    A liberal lawmaker from Oregon lashed out at President Obama on Wednesday, saying he is doing "not so good" and may lose re-election in part because he lacks the will to fight. Rep. Peter DeFazio said Mr. Obama's unwillingness to go toe-to-toe with Republicans over campaign promises to allow tax cuts for the wealthy to expire shows he is not tough. "Fight? I don't think it's a word in his vocabulary, I mean, come on," DeFazio said in an interview with Portland television station KGW. "The Republicans telegraphed to him they were going to use a fake crisis over the...
  • Oregon Democrats Attack Art Robinson’s Children

    The Northwest Report March 8, 2011 By Art Robinson © 2011 In an effort to do my part in rescuing our country from the out-of-control Obama administration, last year I ran for Congress in Oregon’s 4th District against 12-term incumbent, far-left Democrat Peter DeFazio, co-founder of the House Progressive Caucus. Although I won the nominations of the Republican, Independent and Constitution Parties and the endorsement of the Libertarian Party, a massive media smear campaign by DeFazio, paid for with money raised by MoveOn.org and from special interests favored by DeFazio in Washington, resulted in a 54.5 percent to 43.6 percent...

However, when you take a stand for what's right, sometimes there is retribution.

    Dem Proposes Letting People Opt Out of Health Insurance Mandate -- But There's a CatchBy Dan Springer Published March 04, 2011 Seattle attorney Marianne Meeker doesn't have health insurance and doesn't want the government ordering her to buy it. She pays her doctor with cash. And because Dr. Vern Cherewatenko only takes cash, he can charge a lot less than his peers who deal with Medicare and insurance companies. "I don't think you can force people to carry insurance," Meeker said. "I don't think that's part of our mindset." Oregon Rep. Peter DeFazio says he has an answer to these...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 11/12/2010 | Ron Arnold
    DeFazio knew about Brown’s litigating timber sales when he hired her in Washington. He also hired extremist David Dreher as legislative aide in 2000, now with the Pew-funded Campaign for America’s Wilderness. DeFazio’s office is practically an incubator for radicals. On Election Day, DeFazio beat Robinson by 9 points. That took the monkey was off his back because it was not he but Salazar who had made those logging promises that won’t be kept. Because of lawyers like Brown. Some might say DeFazio is a walking Potemkin village. And Big Green’s most important product is still unemployment.

    One of the most extraordinary and consequential races to be decided Nov. 2 is one you've probably never heard of – the challenge to powerful 12-term "progressive" Rep. Peter DeFazio by renowned scientist Art Robinson in Oregon's 4th Congressional District. There's been little press on this race. Dick Morris and Karl Rove, during their nightly election-race analyses on "Hannity," don't mention it. And the Republican National Committee hasn't even given a cent to the Republican challenger. Why? Because they've all considered Robinson's race against DeFazio unwinnable. Until now. Art Robinson, Ph.D. As WND reported Friday, an eye-opening independent poll shows...

    There has been a lot of discussion of the election results in Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Kentucky and Arkansas by the talking head on TV and talk show pundits on the radio, not not much information on the results in Oregon. Why am I interested in the results on Oregon? Glad you asked. Art Robinson ran in the GOP Primary to represent the Oregon in 4th Congressional District. Wise Republican voters selected Dr. Art Robinson to represent them in the November 2010 Congressional race against Democrat Peter DeFazio. I saw an online video by Art Robinson at the 4th International Climate Change...

    The discussion over what parliamentary procedures will be used in reconciling the House and Senate versions of healthcare legislation is a pivotal -- but not the final -- factor in the process. Reporting from Washington and Los Angeles The House Rules Committee meets Saturday morning as Democrats kick off a weekend of parliamentary maneuvering, lobbying and arm-twisting in the healthcare debate ahead of showdown votes set for Sunday. President Obama will meet in the afternoon with House Democrats and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, about 24 hours before the House is set to begin voting on a healthcare insurance overhaul,...

    Say what you will about the ObamaCare debate, but it has had at least one effect — we’ve learned the names of a lot more Congressmen than in the past. After Ohio’s John Boccieri flipped from a no to a yes this morning, Peter DeFazio of Oregon flipped the other way this afternoon, putting Nancy Pelosi another vote farther from getting 216 on Sunday: Just when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi seemed to be one vote shy of the 216 she needs for health care reform to pass, a Democrat who voted for the bill last year says he’s switching his...

    Keith Ellison, widely hailed as America's first Muslim congressman, could more accurately be described as CAIR and Hamas' man in Congress. Congressman Ellison has been a regular presence at CAIR fundraisers and at pro-Hamas rallies in the United States. As a former member of Farrakhan's Nation of Islam , Ellison has enough anti-semitic and Islamist credentials to satisfy anyone, and had expressed openly anti-semitic beliefs in the past. Since Ellison got his start with CAIR , his attempt to provide support for Hamas is completely unsurprising. Both Hamas and CAIR are projects of the Muslim Brotherhood, which also helped...

    Health care town hall meeting in Grants Pass, OR, August 12, 2009, Anne Basker Auditorium. Peter DeFazio D-OR, 4th Congressional District. The auditorium was filled to capacity by the time I arrived at about 5:00 P.M. for the announced 5:15 P.M. town hall meeting. The auditorium has a capacity of around 200/250. The crowd outside numbered in the 300 to 400 range. They were peaceful and respectful. Some chanting: "No Obama health care," and similar things. Small group of SEIU and professional gov't types tried to chant pro Obamacare slogans, but were drowned out. The numbers outside were about 10...

    Oregon Reps. Peter DeFazio and Greg Walden are at a crossroads in their congressional careers as they ponder jumping into a wide-open race for governor in 2010. Democrat DeFazio and Republican Walden are each tempted by the likely prospect of becoming his party's nominee -- as veteran Portland lawyer and lobbyist Walt Evans puts it, each would "start on third base." But each also has compelling reasons to stay in Congress.

    "Don't think we're not keeping score, brother." That's what President Barack Obama said to Rep. Peter DeFazio in a closed-door meeting of the House Democratic Caucus last week, according to the Associated Press. A few weeks ago, Mr. DeFazio voted against the administration's stimulus bill. The comment from Mr. Obama was a presidential rebuke and part of a new, hard-nosed push by the White House to pressure Congress to adopt the president's budget. He has mobilized outside groups and enlisted forces still in place from the Obama campaign. Senior presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett and her chief of staff, Michael Strautmanis,...

    The following is a Dear Colleague sent by Representative DeFazio introducing his No BAILOUTS Act, which would Address the current financial crisis without putting the American taxpayer on the hook for billions of dollars. Dear Democratic Colleague: The House of Representatives rejected the $700 bailout yesterday. Distinguished economists across the world have stated it would not have solved the problem at hand. However, we can potentially solve this liquidity problem at little cost to the taxpayer. I am proposing that Congress drop the Paulson Plan, and instead pass the No BAILOUTS Act. The No BAILOUTS Act provides an alternative to...

    WASHINGTON – Opponents of a pilot project that allows Mexican trucks to travel throughout the United States took another step toward ending the program yesterday, when a House committee approved a bill to bar its continuation next year. The bill could get a vote by the full House when lawmakers return from their summer break in September. “We believe it's time to end the program,” said Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., the chief sponsor of the bill. DeFazio blasted the Bush administration for ignoring a law passed by Congress last year to end the pilot program. He said lax safety standards...
