    Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill ... The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was inserted in the bill, which passed on a partisan vote. All the Democrats voted for it. ... The power invested in the director of the CFPB was, and still is, unencumbered by any limiting authority of those elected to govern. He is a person who under Dodd-Frank answers to no-one. His agency receives its funding without any limitation or congressional oversight, as it has a “put” to the unlimited resources of the Federal Reserve rather than the congressionally-appropriated budget. The director of the bureau is essentially an unelected,...

    Whether you realize it or not, that is what is taking place. One set of rules for the elite, but a different set for average Joe Americans - they get no one-year exemption, or a Congressional exemption. With all of this in mind, is it no wonder that Obama, Reid, Pelosi and cowardly Republicans are causing Americans to say to h e double l with it all, and leading some like Cruz, Paul, Lee, Palin and others to take a stand and fight for us?
  • Lawmakers Deny Insider Trading in ‘60 Minutes’ Report

    Roll Call ^ | 11-13-11 | Ryan Teague Beckwith, Jon Stanton
    Updated: 10:30 p.m. Members of Congress may be personally profiting from insider information they gather while legislating, according to a “60 Minutes” report that aired tonight. A segment on the long-running TV news show noted that insider-trading laws do not apply to Members of Congress, highlighting several suspiciously timed deals in which lawmakers profited. The examples came from Peter Schweizer, a research fellow at the conservative Hoover Institution think tank at Stanford University, but “60 Minutes” said it verified all of the information in them. * Rep. Spencer Bachus bought stock option funds that would profit if the market crashed...
  • We're All Greeks Now

    Departing for New Hampshire in November 2010, Sen. Judd Gregg, the fiscal conservative President Obama wanted in his Cabinet, blurted an inconvenient truth: "This nation is on a course where if we don't do something about it, get ... fiscal policy (under control), we're Greece." The remark was regarded as hyperbole. But Gregg had a point. For though Greece, measured by the size of her economy, is only 2 to 3 percent of the EU or the U.S. economy, she is a microcosm of the West. Consider the demography. According to the most recent revision of the U.N.'s "World Population...

    Prominent New Hampshire Republican Judd Gregg says that Sarah Palin just might have a clearer path to the Republican presidential nomination next year than commonly understood – an event he warns would lead to President Obama's clear reelection. Gregg, the former senator and governor of the Granite State, says the muddled GOP presidential field means it's more likely than ever there won't be a clear consensus candidate before the party's nominating convention in August of 2012. If that happens, says Gregg, Palin and her army of supporters might have the upper hand when it comes to settling on a presidential...

    DOVER — One national columnist has speculated New Hampshire's own Judd Gregg, who recently retired after three terms in the U.S. Senate, is considering a run for the presidency in 2012. Jonah Goldberg, editor-at-large of National Review Online, cites the Republican as acting like he's not running "but hasn't ruled it out." As Gregg's term wraps up and the holidays approach, no one is available to take calls at his offices throughout the state and in Washington, D.C. The listed phone number for Gregg's home in Rye has been temporarily disconnected, according to a recording. Republican Strategist Mike Dennehy said...

    Republican Sens. Tom Coburn and Mike Crapo, who sit on President Obama's deficit-reduction commission, will vote in favor of the commission's plan, according to sources. They will join Sens. Kent Conrad (D) and Judd Gregg (R), who said yesterday they'd also support the package. Fourteen of the commission's 18 members need to vote yes for the plan to move to Congress. The vote is expected to take place tomorrow. Both senators are voting members of the panel. "I'm scared to death at the potential that could unwind this country," said Coburn, one of the Senate's most fiscal conservative members. Crapo...

    Link is to video of Kudlow interviewing Gregg. Gregg says Obama and Dems spending is intentional, so that we'll have no choice but to institute a value-added tax (VAT) so our tax policy mimics the European model. A few examples: “This spending is being done intentionally.” “VAT is the plan.” “Down the European road.”

    WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH) today made the following statement regarding the nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the United States Supreme Court. Senator Gregg stated, “The Senate’s duty to provide advice and consent on Presidential nominations to the Supreme Court is one of its most significant constitutional responsibilities. Separate and distinct from its legislative function, the confirmation process requires the Senate to put aside politics and conduct a frank and evenhanded review of the nominee’s record, qualifications and demonstrated ability to apply the law in a fair and impartial manner. “I have met personally with Solicitor...

    Here is video of Sen. Judd Gregg on CNBC today where he placed the blame for most of the U.S. financial crisis squarely at the feet of the Democrats. Gregg was asked about the so-called “Financial Reform” bill, which he described as a “disaster” because it does nothing about reform of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. That’s where Gregg drew the link between the Democrats and the economic crisis: “The problem was created by the Congress. It was the Congress that told Freddie and Fannie to radically expand their securitization efforts. It was the Congress which said “Forget your standards...

    The Senate has rejected an effort to prevent the federal government from rescuing states or municipalities facing a financial crisis. Republican Sen. Judd Gregg of New Hampshire offered the proposal as an amendment to a broad financial regulation bill. Gregg said federal taxpayers should not have to bail out states that fail to be fiscally responsible. Several states face budget shortfalls, with California leading the way with deficit estimated at $19.1 billion. Democratic Sen. Christopher Dodd of Connecticut, made an impassioned defense of the government's responsibility to provide aid if necessary.

    [A]n amendment just filed yesterday from Sen. Gregg (R-NH) on state/local bailouts [...] would prohibit the use of federal funds to purchase or guarantee obligations of, issue lines of credit to, or provide direct aid to any state or local government which has defaulted or is likely to default absent federal assistance. This would explicitly prohibit Treasury assistance, and would prohibit the Fed from purchasing, guaranteeing, or taking as collateral any obligation of a state/local govt that has defaulted or is likely to (the Fed can currently buy investment grade state/local debt with a maturity of up to 6 months)....

    Using his strongest language to date, Sen.

    Is Judd Gregg a tease or a real potential partner for President Barack Obama in trying to salvage some health care reform in this Congress? That’s one question the White House has to answer for itself before the much-ballyhooed televised sit-down with Republicans on Feb. 25 on how to break the current stalemate. In a letter to Obama released late Tuesday, Gregg welcomed the meeting as a chance for “constructive dialogue” and is promoting his own lower-cost approach focused on preventive care and guaranteed catastrophic coverage for all families. His letter warns the president that the House- and Senate-passed health...

    Many Americans feel that some Republicans fail to understand them as much as the Democrats do. Shining example of it is the proposed health care plan by Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH).....Number one factor that makes the folks to distrust Washington is the inability of the politicians on both sides of the isle to call the things with their real names. For example, Senator Gregg, like President Obama and his friends Pelosi and Reid call the mandatory health insurance: “ENSURING ACCESS FOR ALL AMERICANS”. Mr. Gregg, your plan does not ensure access – it makes it mandatory for everybody over age...

    TARP: The OMB director is grilled over the misuse of bank bailout funds for purposes other than intended by Congress. This taxpayer money wasn't intended to be the administration's perpetual slush fund. When the specifically targeted and named Troubled Asset Relief Program was enacted, we were told it was a necessary and wise investment. It would stabilize the financial system and keep credit and money moving. We would even get our money back and then some. Many banks didn't want the money or need it. Some were told to take it or they'd be audited. So they took it. The...

He was engaged to somebody, she was pregnant, and he broke up and has gotten with somebody else now. Revenge of the Nerds, so to speak. Anyway, here's the first bite from Judd Gregg.
