  • Awful: Senate Dems Block Anti-Infanticide Bill

    02/05/2019 7:18:53 AM PST · by Kaslin · 60 replies ^ | February 5, 2019 | Leah Barkoukis
    Sen. Ben Sasse and his Republican colleagues did not receive the unanimous consent they were looking for on legislation that would’ve outlawed infanticide.  Democratic Washington Sen. Patty Murray blocked the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,” presented by Sasse, that would’ve given infants who survived abortions medical care and protections under the law.“Frankly, this shouldn’t be hard,” he said.  In this country, all of us are created equal. If that equality means anything, surely it means that infanticide is wrong. Frankly, this shouldn’t be hard.— Senator Ben Sasse (@SenSasse) February 5, 2019 Murray argued the legislation is not necessary because...
  • McCarthy 'Clarifies' a Few Things Schumer Said About Today's Meeting With Trump

    Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi held a press conference on Wednesday shortly after meeting with President Trump at the White House again over the border security disputes that have caused the government shutdown. They described Trump as off putting and unreasonable, completely unwilling to make a deal. He was having a "temper tantrum," according to the Democrats. "He couldn't get his way and he just walked out of the meeting," Schumer recalled.GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy helped lead a press conference shortly afterward, attempting to "clarify" just about everything the Democrats said. Standing beside Vice President Mike Pence, McCarthy gave...

    The first observation I noted on Twitter about this breaking story was, “So who is the Party of No now?”After we FINALLY got a continuing resolution out of the House to keep the government running past the end of the month, the Senate has turned around and rejected it. I don’t know how this movie ends, but I’m fairly sure it’s going straight to DVD. The Senate on Friday rejected the GOP-led House’s bill to avert a government shutdown, intensifying a partisan standoff that many in Congress hoped to avoid. The vote was 59-36.Democrats in the Senate, who are in...

    During the summer of 2009, in the early stages of the health care debate, a frustrated Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., lamented that he wasn't getting any cooperation from Republicans. "On something as important as health care, you would think people would be interested in working together," Reid grumbled. "Republicans aren't interested in working with Democrats. That's pretty clear. ... The party of no is hoping that we trip and fall." This "Party of No" rhetoric was parroted by nearly every liberal writer. It is less common today, now that the tables have turned. The new Republican House majority...
  • Liberals plan to push Obama not to compromise with GOP

    Washington Post ^ | 11/11/2010 | Perry Bacon Jr.
    On the heels of the Democratic Party's huge losses in last week's midterm elections, liberal activists have begun planning to push President Obama on a series of issues, demanding that he not cede any ground to Republicans. Liberal groups have blasted Obama at times over the past two years as not being sufficiently dedicated to their positions - history that factored into their criticism of the White House on Thursday for signaling that it will compromise with the GOP on the issue of extending tax cuts that are scheduled to expire this year. Others said they would attack Obama if...

    Senate Democrats agreed Wednesday night to a Republican demand to block President Obama from making recess appointments while Congress is out of town campaigning for the midterm elections. Democratic leaders have agreed to schedule pro-forma sessions of the Senate every week over the next six weeks, a move that will prevent Obama from making emergency appointments, according to Senate sources briefed on the talks. SNIP Under the law, the president can only make a recess appointment if the Senate is adjourned for more than three consecutive days. By scheduling pro-forma sessions on Mondays and Fridays, lawmakers can take away Obama’s...

    Constitution of NoIf President Obama’s motto is “Yes, we can,” the Constitution’s is “No, you can’t.”  When a reporter asked House speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) during a press conference last year where the Constitution granted Congress the authority to enact an individual health-insurance mandate, she answered, “Are you serious? Are you serious?” Speaker Pelosi then dismissed the question and moved on to the next reporter. This exchange illustrates the way “yes we can” liberals treat the Constitution: They simply ignore it when it gets in the way of their big-government bailouts and takeovers. Democrats have always been the “party...

    Cites voter frustration. <America, House Republicans want your help. In an effort to shed its image as a "party of no" with few original ideas to challenge the Democrat-controlled Congress and White House, House Republicans on Tuesday will begin a campaign to ask the general public for input in drafting their next agenda. The nationwide "America Speaking Out" campaign seeks to capitalize on growing voter frustration of the Obama administration and the Democratic Congress. Organizers say they welcome ideas from all voters, regardless of party affiliation. "American Speaking Out is an effort to open the back rooms and closed doors...

    When the Senate's Republican leader Mitch McConnell took to the floor this week to denounce the latest version of Chris Dodd's vision for how American finance and banking ought to be run, McConnell eased fears among conservatives of all sorts that the GOP would go along with an alleged Wall Street makeover just to avoid the prospect of an MSM chorus of denunciation of Republicans as obstructionists. McConnell blistered the Dodd bill as a pathway to future bailouts and in a stroke gave the GOP firm ground on which to fight. Now if he can only do the same thing...

    Surely someone has to say "no" to Mr. Obama's party, which gives an enthusiastic thumbs up to any idea that grows government, increases debt and weakens the country. The "hope and change" mantra has saddled the United States with record budget deficits and ruinous levels of debt stretching for as far as projections can be made. The country teeters on the edge of bankruptcy, and grows weaker while facing an increasingly dangerous international environment. Opposing misguided policies like these is like taking the car keys from an inebriated friend to keep him from driving, or taking credit cards away from...

    According to Politico, the Dems are reviving their “Party of No” attack against the Repubs, saying that the Repubs always say No and obstruct President Obama’s agenda. Looking at where the country stands today, it is VERY good that Repubs say no to… …economic and social policies that brought us the 2008 meltdown. …a Stimulus economy that increased the Unemployment Rate much higher and faster than it did after 9/11 which was initially nothing less devastating to America than the meltdown. …an unemployment rate of above 9%. …an economy not gaining anywhere close to the 150,000 jobs it should have...

    Democrats are debating the tactic of labeling Republicans the “party of no.” Senior strategists in the party argue the label at best has outlived its usefulness, and at worst will do nothing to win new Democratic votes in the 2010 elections. “The Democrats are making an enormous mistake when they say the Republicans are the party of no,” said Paul Begala, the veteran Democratic strategist who worked in President Bill Clinton’s White House. Democrats began describing the GOP as the party of no after every House Republican voted against the $787 billion economic stimulus bill in February. The label has...

    DAVID BRODER, THE POLITICAL columnist for the Washington Post, wrote last week that President Bush "has become the victim of overreach." Former vice president Al Gore has said Bush and congressional Republicans have a different problem, their "lust for power." Both are wrong. Bush's biggest problem--indeed the striking feature of his second term--is the Democrats' lust for obstruction.They have answered Bush's plans for Social Security reform, his judicial nominations, and even his choice of John Bolton to become United Nations ambassador with lockstep opposition. "There is still potential for the ice to break," a White House official says. And President...
