"We have a bunch of baby boomers who are going to retire out of the federal government over the next five to six years. I will not replace a single one," she promised. "And yes, we need to actually get about the business of reducing the size, the power, the cost, complexity and corruption of this federal government."

    Earlier this week, the head of the Democratic party attempted to force Americans,including churches, to pay for abortions. On Wednesday, the House Appropriations Committee considered the bill making appropriations for Labor, Health and Human Services and Education. The legislation contains a number of important pro-life policies and Democrat Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz filed an amendment to strike the conscience protections contained in Sec. 530 of the appropriations bill. The language in that section comes from a pro-life bill, H.R. 940, the Healthcare Conscience Rights Act, and provides relief from the conscience violations imposed by the HHS Preventive Services Mandate.

When asked if abortion should be legal until the moment of birth, she answered that the decision should be left to the mom and her doctor, adding, "Period. End of story." Wasserman Schultz's answer came three times. First in response to a question by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and two more times during Tuesday CNN and Fox News interviews. On April 8, the same day Paul announced he's running for president, he responded to a reporter's question about abortion exceptions...

She is in a safe Democratic district that includes parts of Broward and Miami-Dade counties.

    <p>That's really the only way to describe Politico's piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.</p> <p>Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions.</p>

    Damn. They figured it out. Given that she manages to embarrass Democrats every time she opens her mouth, its not surprising that Ive come to love DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. No matter what the topic, regardless of how unpopular her partys policies are, she can be counted on to spew the craziest, most inane bunch of lunacy youve ever heard. Whether it was her I meant to do that response to losing a projected win in Florida, her constant insistence that Dems love and are running on the extreme popularity of ObamaCare, or her doomed attempt to relaunch the...

    Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is in a behind-the-scenes struggle with the White House, congressional Democrats and Washington insiders who have lost confidence in her as both a unifying leader and reliable party spokesperson at a time when they need her most. Long-simmering doubts about her have reached a peak after two recent public flubs: criticizing the White Houses handling of the border crisis and comparing the tea party to wife beaters. ....One example that sources point to as particularly troubling: Wasserman Schultz repeatedly trying to get the DNC to cover the costs of her wardrobe. In 2012,...

    Wasserman-Schultz washed-up War on Women smear against Gov. Walker Democratic National Congressional Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has effectively (yet inadvertently) ended the Democratic Partys War on Women meme against the Republican Party. Her recent outrageous comments against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker cannot command any respect: Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand. I know that is stark. I know that is direct. But that is reality. What Republican tea party extremists like Scott Walker are doing is they are grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back.

    The leader of the Democrat Party, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is at it again. This time in an interview with Jorge Ramos of Fusion she decides to call House Republicans bigots. The conversation is about illegal immigration, and Wasserman Schultz knows exactly where shes at so she panders. She calls illegal immigrants the backbone of our economy and says that House Republicans decision to stand against illegal immigration is basically because they are horrible racists. This isnt about politics at all. Its not about politics for the president, nor is it about politics for any of us who care They [illegals]...

    Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, stopped at a Hobby Lobby store in her district on Wednesday not to pick up some craft supplies for one of her kids school projects, but to alert people to the stores existence and urge people not to shop there. I want people to know that this Hobby Lobby is here and they should vote with their purses and their pocketbooks, and women should not shop here. If you didnt know this Hobby Lobby was here before, know it now and dont shop here. They dont...

    Oh, how sweet it is, karma, that is. Will the Florida Democrats lose congressional seats they fought bitterly to win? Will another round in another Florida courtroom be yet another Democrat demise in a fight they may wish they never started? Will their darling, National Democratic Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Weston) (W-S) and their Pelosi pup, Patrick Murphy, the youngest guy in Congress, be tossed under wheels of a bus that may go bust? There is a courtroom battle brewing that could be the mother-in-law of all Florida political battles as Circuit Court Judge Terry Lewis prepares to hear the Democrat...

    A disgusting instance of thuggish brutality was caught on a gas station security camera that contradicts the reports of two Broward Sheriffs Office Deputies. According to Local 10 News, David Gonzalez, 50, admits he was drinking but said he was just using words to defend himself against an allegation that he had stolen some beer at a Texaco station in Deerfield Beach when he was struck twice by a deputy and slammed violently face-first to the pavement.
