    According to Pence’s press release: “The American people are fed up with taxpayer-funded bailouts and deserve to know we are bailing out Greece and possibly other European countries. If the Obama Administration has its way, the U.S. will contribute to a nearly trillion dollar bailout of European countries with economic crises that are a direct result of wasteful government spending. “This legislation would require that countries like Greece cut spending and put their own fiscal house in order, instead of looking to the United States for a bailout. We face record unemployment and a debt crisis of our own, and...

    President Barack Obama announced today his administration would pursue to expand offshore drilling (Reuters): President Barack Obama will announce on Wednesday he will stick with a Bush-era plan to drill oil and natural gas off the coast of Virginia but will not pursue energy development in waters off the U.S. Northeast and the West Coast that were recently opened to drilling. Obama, who wants Congress to move a stalled climate change bill, has sought to reach out to Republicans by signaling he is open to allowing offshore drilling, providing coastlines are protected. Allowing offshore drilling also would create jobs and...

    You always have to ask, what's in the other hand? Who believes a word Obama says about anything? Pence: "This is yet another feeble attempt to gain votes for the President's national energy tax bill that is languishing in the Senate." . . .

    Wall Street Journal via Mike Pence's Facebook Page ^ | March 26, 2010 | Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN)
    This Law Will Not Stand Today at 8:00am This commentary by Congressman Mike Pence appears in this morning's Wall Street Journal: In the dead of night on Sunday, Democrats rammed their health-care overhaul through Congress. Some say we made history. I say we broke with history, turning our back on this country’s finest traditions of limited government, personal responsibility, and the consent of the governed. Republicans remain committed to reforming health care in a way that honors these values. For the past year we have suggested ways to fix the system by reducing costs—specifically through instituting tort reform and by...

    THE HILL ^ | 03/25/10 08:24 PM ET | By J. Taylor Rushing -
    Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) fired back at House Republicans who questioned his ethics this week, calling the GOP officials who crafted a critical press release “pathetic.” The House GOP Conference, headed by Rep. Mike Pence (Ind.), issued a policy paper on its website Tuesday that referred to Dodd as a “Friend of Angelo.” That is a reference to a special VIP program established by former Countrywide CEO Angelo Mozilo, who has been charged with civil fraud and insider trading by federal investigators. The policy paper, titled, “Taxpayers should not trust the ‘Friend of Angelo,’” details what Republicans views as flaws...

    In the dead of night on Sunday, Democrats rammed their health-care overhaul through Congress. Some say we made history. I say we broke with history, turning our back on this country's finest traditions of limited government, personal responsibility, and the consent of the governed. Republicans remain committed to reforming health care in a way that honors these values. For the past year we have suggested ways to fix the system by reducing costs—specifically through instituting tort reform and by allowing Americans to purchase insurance across state lines. As Washington Democrats embark on their attempt to sell government-run health care, they...

    U.S. Rep. Mike Pence set a clear task before Republicans Wednesday night in Iowa City: "Give the president and Obamacare the kind of welcome that it is going to deserve across the country." The Indiana Republican, who is believed to be a 2012 presidential contender, said that if Iowans fulfill their task that he guarantees that the rest of the nation will follow suit. "I don't think there is any mistake that the president has chosen Iowa City in your fair state to start making his case for this government take-over of health care to the American people," said Pence,...
  • "Stop bullying Israel" and focus on Iran (letter from Mike Pence & Jesse Jackson Jr. to Obama)

    CBN ^ | 3/23/10
    The number three Republican in the House of Representatives today told reporters, "I never thought I'd live to see the day that an American administration would denounce the Jewish state of Israel for rebuilding Jerusalem." Pence is a strong supporter of Israel and his remarks came just before a bipartisan meeting with Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Speaking of bipartisanship, Pence has penned a letter with Democrat Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. asking the administration to focus less attention on where Israelis are building settlements and pay more attention on Iran's push for nuclear weapons. Here's a copy of the letter,...

    Worth posting if only because one of the few things the left and right agree on today is that Obama’s executive order is essentially meaningless. Liberals, per dKos, David Corn, and Ezra Klein, think the Senate bill already does what Stupak wants it to do by maintaining the status quo on abortion funding, which means the EO is gratuitous. Pence thinks the Senate bill is a sharp break from the status quo, but since an EO is flimsy to begin with and an EO on this subject from someone as adamantly pro-choice as The One is even flimsier, it’s not...

    Like two heavyweight fighters slugging it out in a battle royal, President Obama and tea party activists will square off once again Tuesday, as grassroots activists host a "We the People Surge" in the nation's capital in protest of the massive planned overhaul of U.S. healthcare. Some tea party leaders expect 10,000 to 15,000 protesters. Others believe the crowd will be even larger. The rally comes at a critical time. The debate over healthcare reform has become the focus of national attention, with Democratic leaders proclaiming again and again that they're closing in on the votes they need to cram...

    Tea Party Amendment In what promises to be a consequential election year, Republican leaders are eager to get the masses who make up the Tea Party movement on their side. But Tea Partyers remember that the GOP Congress and GOP president themselves spent way too much — even expanding the fiscally doomed Medicare entitlement program. Some Tea Party leaders even accuse Republican spendthrifts of practicing socialism. GOP Reps. Jeb Hensarling of Texas, Mike Pence of Indiana and John Campbell of California may have just hit on a way of focusing the energy of a movement that's been accused by Democrats...

    Asserting that "this is our moment," Indiana Rep. Mike Pence issued a call-to-arms at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday morning, urging grass-roots activists to turn Democrats out of power in November and deliver the country from "the bondage of big government." Pence repeatedly brought audience members to their feet with a stirring articulation of conservative principles. Noting his party's failures to adhere to those values when they last held power in Washington, he said to cheers and applause, "We don't just need a Republican majority, we need a conservative majority on Capitol Hill." His speech came on the...

    Mike Pence is one of those guys who thinks he’s more important than he is. Now, let’s not be too hasty, here: he’s an important guy. He’s one of the top-ranking House Republicans and is a certified icon amongst the grassroots. This is exactly why people want him to run for Evan Bayh’s current Senate seat. Take the powerhouse out of the House and put him in the Senate. We need more strong conservative voices like Jim DeMint, we’re told. Alas, Congressman Pence has other plans. He has already visited Iowa and South Carolina, spoke next to Tim Pawlenty, Mitt...

    The steady drumbeat for Marco Rubio keeps going on and on. Today he is picking up the endorsement of Congressman Mike Pence. Congressman Pence said, “I am proud to endorse Marco Rubio for the United States Senate. Marco Rubio’s faith in free markets, limited government and traditional moral values make him the right choice for Republicans in this race. At a time when the American people long for leaders of principle, Marco Rubio will be a courageous check and balance on the current Washington establishment. “With Washington spending money we don’t have and empowering the government at the expense of...
