  • Democrat Rep. John Barrow cosponsors bill to end Chain Migration

    09/24/2014 8:13:24 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 5 replies
    Rep. John Barrow (D-Ga.) has cosponsored Rep. Phil Gingrey's (R-Ga.) Nuclear Family Priority Act, H.R.477, that would eliminate the extended family visa categories (e.g., married sons and daughters of citizens, etc.), thus ending "chain migration" as recommended by the bipartisan Barbara Jordan Commission in 1997. Current immigration law allows U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents to sponsor non-nuclear, adult family members, creating an endless chain of mass legal immigration.

  • Rep. Heath Shuler, a Blue Dog Dem., will not run for re-election

    Rep. Heath Shuler (D-N.C.) will not run for re-election this year, a source close to the Congressman told Roll Call. The Blue Dog Democrat had decided against a bid in a redrawn 11th district, which was made substantially more Republican than his current district during GOP-led redistricting.

  • Where Were You When They Raised The Debt Ceiling (Part Two)

    08/26/2011 1:37:20 PM PDT · by DrDan4Congress · 6 replies ^ | Fri, August 26, 2011 | Dr. Dan Eichenbaum
    In an earlier post on the debt ceiling, I asked if you could recall where you were when a “sentinel event” such as the bombing of Perl Harbor, assassination of JFK or the terrorist attacks of 9-11 occurred. These incidents had a profound effect on life in America, for both our national psyche and for each of us personally. On August 2, 2011, without any significant cuts in the level of federal spending, the Senate voted by a wide margin in favor of a bill already passed by the House to raise the debt ceiling. A modern day sentinel event...

    Heath Shuler: Nancy Pelosi ignoring Blue DogsBy JENNIFER EPSTEIN | 2/7/11 9:17 AM EST Centrist Democrats have had “no communication” with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi since the start of the 112th Congress, one of the leaders of the Blue Dog Coalition said Monday. Rep. Heath Shuler (D-N.C.), who challenged Pelosi for the leadership spot, said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that “there’s been really no communication whatsoever” between his group and the California Democrat. “We still have not had the connection between the Blue Dog members and the leadership.” **SNIP** “We’re not about the ideologues of either political party. We’re...

    Democrat Heath Shuler has declared that he will indeed challenge out-going Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for Minority Speaker. Pelosi, who is blamed in part for the Democrats' massive election loss last Tuesday, has repeatedly said that she has the support of Democrats. Shuler clearly disagrees. In his decision to run, Shuler stated: "We've just come off the largest ... loss for the Democratic Party in almost a century. And to be able to put Speaker Pelosi as minority leader is truly ... unacceptable for our party." Whether Shuler will be able to win is up for speculation. Pelosi,...

    Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, facing a growing rebellion against her bid to become minority leader, is likely to be challenged for the post by a moderate Democrat. North Carolina Rep. Heath Shuler, who has been sending signals since last month that he would run against the San Francisco liberal if she didn't step aside, is expected to launch his leadership bid on Sunday when he appears on CNN's "State of the Union." He's also appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Monday.

    The Republican Mandate ^ | November 11, 2010 | Tim Howes
    In the strange case of Heath Shuler, the Democrats took a page out of the GOP book and ran a proud evangelical Christian, who has been able to obscure his left-leaning tendencies by connecting with voters through faith. Shuler won't win the race for Minority Leader, and importantly, no one should be fooled. The fact that he will run and lose does not mean that there is a strong conservative or moderate wing of the Democratic Party.

    You can put this in the wishful thinking department. North Carolina Democratic Rep. Heath Shuler says he wants to run for House speaker, Politico reports. Given that Republicans are expected to easily take back control of the House next week, Shuler might want to start thinking about 2012 if he’s lucky enough to hold his seat Tuesday. He’s hoping to take over from current speaker Nancy Pelosi. “If there is no viable alternative, I will be running for speaker of the House,” Shuler said during a radio debate with Republican Jeff Miller, the Asheville Citizen-Times reported. “I can do as...

    The Democratic Congressional Committee has reserved ad buys in Rep. Heath Shuler's (D-N.C.) district for the first time, another sign that the DCCC is having to spend money on incumbents who were previously believed to be safe. The ad reservations, confirmed by multiple sources tracking ad buys, show that the DCCC is continuing to reevaluate where to spend its resources in the final weeks of the campaign. In addition to Shuler, the DCCC has also increased its ad reservations for House Budget Committee Chair John Spratt (D-S.C.) and Rep. Mike McIntyre's (D-N.C.), both of whom who hold solidly Republican seats...

    President Bill Clinton will campaign in western North Carolina next week for embattled Democratic Rep. Heath Shuler. Clinton will headline a Thursday rally for Shuler in downtown Asheville. The former president has been traveling the country campaigning and fundraising on behalf of vulnerable Democrats. Shuler, a sophomore lawmaker and former professional football player, faces a challenge from Republican Jeff Miller in the GOP-leaning 11th district. -- Kathleen Hunter

    According to a new SurveyUSA poll of North Carolina’s 11th district for the Civitas Institute, Rep. Heath Shuler is effectively tied with his Republican opponent, Jeff Miller. While the district is Republican leaning, the race so far has been ranked “Likely Democratic” by the Cook Political Report. Shuler first won in 2006 and was re-elected in 2008, both times by substantial margins. If Shuler is in real danger of losing his seat, this means Democrats are in real danger of losing their majority in the House. The 11th District is the kind of seat Republicans need to win to overcome...

    Raleigh, N.C. - The race for North Carolina’s 11th district Congressional seat is a dead heat (45 percent-44 percent) between Democratic incumbent Heath Shuler and Republican candidate Jeff Miller as the unaffiliated vote looks to become the deciding factor according to a new SurveyUSA poll released today by the Civitas Institute. According to the poll of 400 registered voters in that district, when asked who they would vote for if the election for United States House of Representatives were today, 45 percent of voters said they would vote for Shuler. Forty-four percent said they would vote for Miller, and 11...

    The 11th Congressional District of North Carolina is one of the most closely contested districts in the state, and one could wind up in the Republican column come November. After voting in favor of the job-killing cap and trade bill, incumbent Democrat Heath Shuler will have a tough time proving to his constituents that he has stuck to his “conservative Democrat” title and not conformed to the job-crushing, tax increasing liberal agenda. His Republican competition, Jeff Miller, has not only won numerous awards for his service to the community, but his ideals are more in line with what constituents expect...

    Here's new evidence that North Carolina's 11th district may develop into a "sleeper" race this fall. Rep. Heath Shuler, a Blue Dog Democrat, is polling under 50 percent in his conservative western North Carolina district and leading his relatively unknown GOP challenger by just 12 points, according polling conducted for the campaign of businessman Jeff Miller. The survey showed Shuler at 46 percent with Miller at 34 percent and 18 percent undecided. The poll of 300 likely general election voters was conducted for Miller's campaign June 1-3 by Public Opinion Strategies and had a 5.6-point margin of error. Miller, who...

    It may be the most celebrated missing recording since Watergate: the nonexistent or unaccounted-for video of the tea-party protesters at the Capitol who three black congressmen claim yelled racial slurs at them on March 20, the eve of ObamaCare's enactment.... First, there turns out to have been at least one report of a corroborating witness to the alleged slurs. Washington notes that in its March 23 edition, the Hendersonville (N.C.) Times-News published this interview with Heath Shuler, the local congressman, a Democrat who voted against ObamaCare: Shuler was walking with Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, an African-American, toward the Capitol building when...
