  • McConnell defers consideration of Senate healthcare bill until return of John McCain

    07/15/2017 7:40:42 PM PDT · by springwater13 · 93 replies
    The Senate will defer consideration of the GOP healthcare plan that would partially repeal and replace Obamacare until Sen. John McCain returns to work following a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement late Saturday. After wishing him a "speedy recovery," McConnell, R-Ky., added: "While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act." About two hours earlier McCain's office revealed that he would be spending a week in his home state of...

    In a dramatic moment during a House hearing on Monday, Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz slapped an FBI official with a subpoena for all documents related to the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Will the FBI provide to Congress the full file with no redactions of personal identifiable information? Chaffetz asked Jason Herring, the FBIs acting assistant director of legislative affairs, during a House Oversight and Government Reform hearing. I cannot make that commitment sitting here today, Herring said.

    (CNSNews.com) President Barack Obama said Thursday that despite the U.S. Supreme Courts tie vote, which essentially blocks his immigration plan, the millions of illegal immigrants that he sought to make legal with his executive action will remain a low priority for deportation by his administration. Enforcement priorities developed by my administration are not affected by this ruling. This means that the people who might have benefited from the expanded deferred action policies long-term residents raising children who are Americans or legal residents they will remain low priorities for enforcement. As long as you have not committed a...

    The populist uprising against phony free trade and Republicans who love it has taken its first scalp. Rep. Randy Forbes, GOP establishment stalwart and longtime Obamatrade supporter from Virginias 2nd Congressional District, will soon be unemployed. Voters rejected him in favor of his primary opponent Scott Taylor, who stridently opposed Obamatrade.

    After Donald Trump clinched the GOP presidential nomination, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was not satisfied. He spent weeks withholding his official endorsement, while preaching the need for unity. After meeting with Trump a number of times, Ryan gave a very lukewarm endorsement of the businessman turned politician in his hometown newspaper. In an editorial for the Janesville Gazette, Ryan wrote that Trump would be able to work with Congress to help improve peoples lives. Soon thereafter, Ryan was stabbing Trump in the back, doing the bidding of the liberal media and Hillary Clinton. In fact, Ryan is being...

    Donald Trump issued a harsh directive for fellow members of his party: Be quiet or Ill be forced to lead alone. Speaking in the historic Fox Theater in Atlanta, Georgia, Trump appeared to be fed up with leadership of the party he will likely lead into the November election. "You know, the Republicans, honestly folks, our leaders, our leaders have to get tougher. This is too tough to do it alone. But you know what, I think Im going to be forced to. I think I am going to be forced to, our leaders have to get a lot tougher,...

    Political parties, not voters, choose their presidential nominees, a Republican convention rules member told CNBC, a day after GOP front-runner Donald Trump rolled up more big primary victories. "The media has created the perception that the voters choose the nomination. That's the conflict here," Curly Haugland, an unbound GOP delegate from North Dakota, told CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Wednesday. He even questioned why primaries and caucuses are held.

    Just as GOP front-runner Donald Trump continued to shore up delegates, winning several Super Tuesday states, some top Republican strategists and donors began to line up behind a new effort to halt the Trump campaign's momentum. Jeb Bush's former communications director, Tim Miller, announced Tuesday that he would be joining the Our Principles PAC, an anti-Trump effort. Miller will focus on opposition research that will go to expanding the PAC's advertising campaigns - including research targeting endorsers and surrogates like Chris Christie. Other strategists and big name donors - like technology executive Meg Whitman, billionaire Todd Ricketts, and hedge fund...

    Stuart Stevens called Trump "a dangerous person" and "someone who would embarrass America." The Republican Party's top strategist in the 2012 election would rather see Hillary Clinton as the next president than Donald Trump. "Personally, I think Hillary Clinton would be a better president than Donald Trump because I think that Donald Trump is a dangerous person and is someone who would embarrass America," Stuart Stevens, who advised 2012 nominee Mitt Romney, said Tuesday on Bloomberg's "With All Due Respect." "I have no desire to see Hillary Clinton as president of the United States," he added. "But if this is...

    A Tale of Two Shiftys’ There is a bigger controversy about to break wide-open that’s potentially far more significant than Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell approving Nikki Haley’s non-subtle attack on GOP front runner Donald Trump. That bigger controversy is the Spanish version of the GOP State of the Union rebuttal containing an “amnesty pledge“. As this is written, Governor Nikki Haley is trying to get out ahead of the building expose’. Haley just gave a DC press conference claiming she does not support “amnesty”; however, against her earlier admission of Speaker Ryan and Leader McConnell approving her script –...

    The Republican Senate majority has proven over the past year that "significant, long term reforms" and conservative policy goals can be passed, even with a president who is from a different party, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in Saturday's GOP address. "Many issues languished in the old Senate for years," the Kentucky Republican said. "Some were assumed to be too difficult for any Senate majority to address. But the Republican Senate you elected, working with the men and women who stand up for you in the House of Representatives, tackled each of them -- and the president signed most into...

Paul Ryan (R-WI)'s and Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)'s plans to force Americans to pay for President Obama’s Syrian refugee resettlement program.

    How much damage can he do in his last year in office? Insidiously and inadvertently, Barack Obama is alienating the people and moving the country to the right. If he keeps it up, by 2017 it will be a reactionary nation. But, counterintuitive as it seems, that is fine with Obama: Après nous le déluge. By sheer force of his personality, Obama has managed to lose the Democratic Senate and House. State legislatures and governorships are now predominantly Republican. Obama's own favorable ratings rarely top 45 percent. In his mind, great men, whether Socrates or Jesus, were never appreciated in...

    Speaker of the House Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) 58% previously denied that the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal impacted U.S. immigration; however, now that the full 5,544 pages of the TPP are public and being reviewed by experts, it’s clear Ryan’s statement was false. “The way we wrote TPP, it deals strictly with trade and not immigration,” Ryan told Newsmax six months ago, adding that the idea the TPP consists of immigration reform is “the latest urban legend.” However, in Chapter 12 of the TPP titled “Temporary Entry for Business Persons,” the word “immigration” is mentioned nearly 10 times....

    Wisconsin Republican Rep. Paul Ryan was elected on Thursday to serve as the next speaker of the House — a vote that followed weeks of uncertainty and came on the heels of the House passage of a sweeping two-year bipartisan budget deal. Ryan is expected to call for a renewed effort to make the House function as a great deliberative body again. And he asked members to put the concerns of working families front and center. "We have nothing to fear from honest differences honestly stated," Ryan was expected to say in prepared remarks. "If you have ideas, let's hear...

    For another thing, conservatives will almost surely see this as a betrayal. The administration came up with the idea of sequestration, and it turned out to be only tangible victory Republicans could claim on spending. You might remember the 2010 Pledge to America that promised to roll back government spending to pre-stimulus/bailout levels, cutting at least $100 billion in the first year after taking power. Republicans failed to achieve this improbable goal. And almost every year since, government spending has gone up, though the GOP keeps adding seats by promising to achieve the opposite. So the central question is: how...

Watch it below: If it is correct that the Speaker, before he resigns, has cut a deal with Nancy Pelosi to fund the Obama Administration for the rest of its tenure, to fund Obamacare, to fund executive amnesty, to fund Planned Parenthood, to fund implementation of its Iran deal. And then presumably to land at a cushy K-Street job Ted Cruz If new reports out of Washington are right, Cruz was correct almost a month ago to the day, and Boehner is set...
