    First speaking to the choir at a roundtable discussion attended by area female political leaders, they then moved over to the party’s campaign headquarters on Fitch Street. Schultz, a congresswoman from Florida, said when she returns home to her district, “no one asks us when are we going to get back to investigating Benghazi; no one asks us when the heck are you finally going to sue Barack Obama; no one says please vote for the 57th time to repeal the Affordable Care Act and take my health care away, yet those are the things that reach the top of...

    Minnesota Republican congresswoman Michelle Bachmann sparred with Florida Democratic congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz over the new congressional committee to investigate Benghazi — with Wasserman Schultz claiming Republicans are “clearly doing this to drive their turnout” and Bachmann accusing Democrats of trying “to sabotage this process.” The two congresswomen appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Candy Crowley to discuss the ongoing investigation into the Obama administration’s response to the September 2012 Benghazi attacks. Wasserman Schultz was entirely certain that there’s nothing left to investigate. “Republicans are clearly doing this to drive their turnout –” “Candy, that is not true...

    **SNIP** Last month, the Senate Judiciary Committee passed a companion version of legislation written by U.S. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) that would make tax return identity theft a greater priority for the federal government and strengthen criminal penalties against identity thieves. The “Stopping Tax Offenders and Prosecuting Identity Theft Act” would also expand the definition of an identity theft victim to include not only individuals, but also businesses and organizations that have had their identities stolen for phishing schemes in an attempt to obtain sensitive personal information from consumers. “Every year, millions of hard-working Americans file tax returns in...

    Debbie Wasserman-Schultz said in November that Democrats would enthusiastically run on Obamacare in the mid-term elections and it would be a winning issue, however it appears that Democratic candidates have not gotten the memo and are attempting to distance themselves from Obamacare rather than embrace it. Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee said in November, “You’re darn right that our candidates are going to run on the advantage that Obamacare will be going into the 2014 election. The choice will be very clear.” **SNIP** However, individual candidates who know they have to face the voters in November appear to...

    Florida Democratic Party donors affiliated with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) are coming to the aid of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.), who has come under fire in recent weeks over her efforts to quietly block new Iran sanctions measures in the House and Senate. AIPAC’s initial letter on the controversy, which circulated two weeks ago, urged Wasserman Schultz’s constituents to “respectfully ask” that she clarify her position on the congressional measures and issue a statement supporting them. However, on Jan. 24, AIPAC’s Southeastern states director Mark Kleinman issued a second letter, this one defending Wasserman Schultz....

    The American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s attack against the Florida congresswoman over Iran sanctions legislation shows its “open revolt against the White House's Iran diplomacy,” a report says. In a letter, the AIPAC strongly lashed out at Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who is known as a staunch Israel supporter, for being silent over the legislation, Foreign Policy’s The Cable reported. According to the report, the harsh criticism that one of Congress’s most pro-Israel lawmakers is not pro-Israel enough for the lobbying group “raised eyebrows among some current and former AIPAC officials.”

Voters are trying to recall Morse and Giron because of their support of gun control laws that banned rifle and pistol magazines larger than 15 rounds, banned shotgun magazines larger than eight rounds, and mandated a background check on every gun sale in the state, i.e., universal background checks. The laws also contained a new fee that will be added to every gun sale to pay for...

Her budget calls for $1 trillion in ADDITIONAL taxes over the next 10 years and an increase in Federal debt of $7.3 trillion. Needless to say, the Murray budget never balances.

President Obama narrowly won the state in 2008, but recent polling has suggested that Romney now holds a slight but steady advantage in the state.

Much of the session, which featured a string of speakers from the Obama campaign, was devoted to defending Obama’s record on Israel.

    Debbie Downer, aka Debbie Wasserman-Schulz, was interviewed by John Roberts on Fox News Sunday. Roberts asked her about the Priorites USA ad that implies that Mitt Romney caused a woman to die from cancer. In the ad Joe Soptic says “When Mitt Romney and Bain closed the plant, I lost my health care, and my family lost their health care,” Soptic says in the minute-long spot. “And a short time after that, my wife became ill . . . she passed away in 22 days.” There you go. Mitt Romney killed her. Never mind that Romney left Bain in 1999. Never mind...

    Republicans see Wasserman Schultz's seat as plum targetBy Erika Bolstad Posted on Thursday, 08.09.12 There's a wide field of Republicans hoping to unseat U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who also serves as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, but so far, the candidates have spent more time bashing each other than the incumbent. “We've clearly got a spirited primary on our hands here,” Richard DeNapoli, chairman of the Republican Party of Broward County, told a crowd earlier this summer when four of the candidates appeared in a debate.

    Please excuse the loose use of the term "outsource" in my headline. But now that the Washington Post, BuzzFeed Politics, and Barack Obama have defined outsourcing as "Something Romney never did but is guilty of anyway," I wanted to get in the spirit of things. Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been running around for a few days now sliming up the airwaves with smears and innuendo that started with this article written by Vanity Fair's Nicholas Shaxson, a bigtime leftist and Occupy supporter. Essentially, the Wasserman Schultz talking point has been: "We don't know what Romney's hiding...

Says she is “pretty happy” with the ongoing economic recovery according to a report by The Examiner, published Sunday, July 8.

    Wasserman Schultz: ObamaCare Not A Tax, IRS "Easiest" Way To Enforce PenaltyPosted on July 2, 2012 **SNIP** "The way we usually think of taxation, Wolf, is that taxation as the IRS administers is collected on broad swaths and large categories of individuals. This is a penalty that will be assessed on the tax return if you choose to roll the dice and make us all pay for your being irresponsible and increase all of our health care costs," Wasserman Schultz said on the Monday evening broadcast of CNN's "The Situation Room."

    Democratic leader consoles Wisconsin party after recallBy Brendan O'Brien | Reuters – 9 hours ago MILWAUKEE (Reuters) - Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz rallied Wisconsin Democrats holding their state convention this weekend, urging them to regroup after a failed attempt to recall the state's Republican governor. Wasserman Schultz said Wisconsin Democrats had been up against "nothing short of an avalanche of secret, out of state, and corporate special interest money" in their bid to unseat Governor Scott Walker, who enjoyed a 7-to-1 financial advantage over his challenger Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

Wasserman Schultz (apparently her hyphen is broken) is in a Dem dilemma. On the one hand, Debbie's got to put on a happy face about their chances in Wisconsin and the glorious nationwide victory that that will portend for November. On the other hand, privately, Debbie knows the Democrats are losing Wisconsin and are in big trouble for November. So now when she has to speak about the significance of the Wisconsin recall election, Wasserman is trying...

    DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was scheduled to give the keynote address at a fundraiser hosted by an American Muslim on the Federal Terrorist Watch List, is backing out. Called out by her Republican opponent Joe Kaufman, Wasserman Schultz’s spokesman issued a statement that “there was a miscommunication, she is not speaking to the organization … we never agreed to do a fundraiser, nor this event.” But, as usual, Wasserman Schultz is lying. You can see the flyer here. The event, which was to raise funds for EMERGE USA, is to be hosted by Khurrum Wahid, an attorney who...
