    In what might have appeared to be a minor political event a few weeks back, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called congressman Tom Marino (R-PA) “insignificant” and “inconsequential” in a debate on the House floor. Why would the former House Speaker insult a colleague in such a manner? nancy pelosi laughing She didn’t count her way to this assessment; Democrats do not hold a majority of the House. Nor did she reason her way to this position, as there was nothing in Rep. Marino’s argument on the immigration issue that raised empirical red flags. Perhaps it was a momentary lapse in judgment...

    Normally, the Congressional votes are about as exciting as watching paint dry on growing grass, but when House Representative Tom Marino accused the Democrats of not being brave enough to pass immigration reform when they controlled the Congress, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi jumped up and came at the guy! Marino struck a nerve by pointing out that the Democrats owned the entire Congress and White House for two years and did nothing about illegal immigration. Nancy Pelosi then crept up on Marino and began taunting him. Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., said it best: “What is she doing?”...

    Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.) is consulting with former prosecutors in the House and having statutes examined for ways for the House to indict administration officials in the IRS, Benghazi, reporter spying, NSA spying and other scandals in the Obama admnistration, because it's obvious that Eric Holder is not willing to punish offenders. Speaking during a radio interview on Wednesday, Marino said that he is investigating ways in which the House can file criminal and civil charges against members of the administration, "up to and including the president."

    In strong language, U.S. Rep. Tom Marino made his opposition to intervention in Syria abundantly clear Wednesday, pointedly questioning Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel at a House hearing. Mr. Marino predicted American soldiers would ultimately die if the U.S. gets involved. Despite President Barack Obama's assurance that no American troops would enter the ground war in Syria, Mr. Marino predicted even Mr. Obama's planned limited response to the Syrian government's use of chemical weapons would backfire on the U.S. "And this I cannot accept. Soldiers coming home deformed and limbless and even in a...

    Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.) in a Thursday radio interview revealed he is exploring the potential options that would allow Congress to file civil or criminal charges against members of the Obama administration and even President Barack Obama himself. Citing the Obama administration’s delay in the implementation of the employer mandate found in “Obamacare,” Marino told radio host David Madeira that the president continues to show a disregard for the law. He also argued Attorney General Eric Holder is never going to hold the Obama administration accountable. “If the chief law enforcer of the country [Holder] will not enforce the law,”...

    U.S. Rep. Tom Marino, a critic of President Barack Obama, said in a radio interview Thursday he is exploring options available to Congress that would allow members to file civil or criminal actions against members of the Obama administration. The former U.S. attorney chided Obama’s “unilateral” decision regarding the Congress-approved Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, that included delaying one mandate that was set to begin without first seeking congressional approval. Last week, the Obama administration announced a delay until 2015 a requirement that businesses with 50 or more workers provide health insurance for their employees....
