Worst Bill Evah?

Nancy Pelosi is screaming about the tax reform bill making its way through the Congressional sausage machine and she is not happy. When she is able to put words together and express a semi cogent thought she manages to rant about the tax bill being the worst ever. Yes, San Fran Nan is upset with the bill because, get this, it will add to the deficit and it will get rid of the Obamacare mandate. According to the dim bulb known as Pelosi, this will cause Armageddon. It will result is a lot of deaths.

Best I can tell from the news is that all human life on the planet will be extinguished when the tax bill becomes a law.

Good thing Democrats are not dramatic…

So Nancy Pelosi is worried about the debt. First of all there is no concrete evidence that the tax bill will cause the debt to rise. There are some reports but these are by the same organizations who told us Obamacare would save us money and was debt neutral. Obamacare is raising the debt and 2.2 TRILLION dollars looks like the net added to our ever growing debt. The reality is if taxes are cut more people will get to keep more of their money to spend and that will be great for the economy which will in turn get revenue flowing to Treasury.

The problem is not in tax cuts but in spending. Congress and the rest of the establishment government absolutely refuse to cut spending. If more revenue comes in they will spend even more. This has been demonstrated time and again and most recently during the Obama reign of terror. Record amounts of money were paid into the Treasury in many months and our debt still went up. Each time there is more money the government can’t resist spending it and more. This is one major reason our debt increases. Couple this with the fact that a lot of money is spent on programs that the government has no Constitutional power to be involved in and one can see why we continue to owe more money.

The national debt doubled under Obama. We went from just about 10 TRILLION dollars when Bush left office to just about 20 TRILLION when Obama left office. Nancy Pelosi and every other worthless liberal Democrat screaming about the debt were in office when this happened. They happily raised the debt ceiling, happily spent more and happily looked away as out debt continued to rise. Their concern now is nothing more than political theater. If Hillary Clinton had won (perish the thought) they Democrats would be pushing for more and more spending and more and more debt. They are absolute hypocrites.

Which puts me on to the next item. Brain dead Pelosi claims this is the worst bill in the history of Congress. I guess she is even including all the racist Democrat Jim Crow bills that became law and harmed the black population of our nation. Democrats were responsible and Democrat Pelosi thinks allowing YOU to keep more of YOUR money is worse than bills designed to keep blacks oppressed.

You folks who pay no taxes don’t get to scream about who benefits because you have been benefiting all along as the rest of us paid and continue to pay your way.

Obamacare is one of the worst legislative pieces ever produced. It enslaved people, caused them harm, caused them increases in what they spend and forced them to buy a product whether they wanted it or not. It did this by forcing some tax payers to pay for others (in addition to their own) and it forced people to buy insurance or be fined (or taxed if you are John Roberts). It added to the national debt, resulted in people losing coverage and doctors they were promised they could keep and it did little more than make most people slaves to the government.

Nancy, the tax bill allows those of us who earn money and pay taxes to keep more of what we earn and pay less to the government. THIS IS NOT A BAD THING. It is certainly not the worst bill ever.

Unless of course your life revolves around waiting for your taxpayer funded handouts…

Pelosi Should Be Put Out To Pasture

Nancy Pelosi is warning that if the Supreme Court rules in favor of those challenging the subsidies in Obamacare win it will cost Republicans because allegedly 8 million people have the coverage and rely on them. She predicts that it will harm all those folks and Republicans will pay a price.

She claims that this is all because a phrase in the law has been taken out of context.

Pelosi said she knew the law well and that opponents were relying on a phrase taken “out of context” in pressing their case before the court. AP News

The woman who said you had to pass it to find out what was in it now claims that she knows the law well? The same law that continues to have surprises pop up because no one knew they were there?

Right…

As for out of context, the Democrats made it clear that only states that set up exchanges would get subsidies when they were pushing the bill on us. They made it clear this was a carrot and stick approach where states would be provided incentives to set up exchanges and one of the incentives was subsidies.

Now that someone has challenged that part of the law the Democrats have rewritten history and are claiming this is what they meant all along.

They are liars as is Pelosi.

I do not think Republicans will pay a price for this if the ruling in their favor. The law says what it says and that is how it should be followed.

Of course liberals have trouble with following the wording of the Second Amendment (hell all of the Constitution) so I expect them to be clueless in this regard as well.

GOP Is Not Shutting Down DHS

Barack Obama and the Democrats are.

The last budget deal funded everything except the DHS through the end of the fiscal year (ends 30 September 2015). DHS was funded through the end of February because of one thing and that is Barack Obama’s unlawful Executive Order on illegal immigrants. Obama is moving forward with his plan to allow millions of illegals to receive some sort of legal status and of course, all the benefits that American taxpayers can provide.

The Republicans funded DHS short term so they could work the issue out. Democrats do not want to work things out and are now crying about the things they used to do and are doing the things they used to cry about.

Democrats say the DHS should not be held hostage because of immigration and that the issue should be a separate issue in a separate bill. Really? They loved to put bad things in must pass bills to force Republicans to vote for them when they were in charge.

They are also filibustering in the Senate. They hated it when Republicans did so and decried the party of NO. Now they are the party of NO and are doing the very thing they said was wrong to do.

I have no problems with either party using whatever parliamentary procedures they can legally use. This is how politics work. But it is hypocritical for either party to do one thing and cry later when the same thing is done by “the other guy.”

As far as I am concerned they can shut down the DHS until Obama and his illegal actions are stopped. We did not have a DHS prior to 2001 and we survived up until then. Shut them down for as long as it takes to force Obama to stop violating his oath and OUR Constitution.

Nancy Pelosi is telling people what is right and wrong with all of this as if she actually has a clue. She lacks a brain and should be in jail for her illegal actions and for violating her oath.

Pelosi is upset at short term continuing resolutions and says they are not the way to do things. Her party used CRs for years because they never passed a budget. They always let things get to the brink of disaster and then forced votes in the middle of the night or during the holidays in order to coerce people to pass bills no matter how bad they were. She is also as responsible as anyone for the number of CRs that have been used in years past.

Shut up Nancy. No one wants to hear what comes out of your mouth because it has no brain to connect to and if it did it would be a mush filled liberal brain that is devoid of logic or intelligence.

Darth Boehner And The RINO Empire Strike Back

John Boehner was reelected as Speaker of the House even though he faced the strongest revolt since about the time of the Civil War. More than twenty Republicans cast a vote for someone else as Speaker. This is supposed to be their vote and they can do with it as they wish. These folks were upset that Boehner continually gives in to Barack Obama and the Democrats and they were particularly upset with the most recent budget deal that fully funds Obamacare and does not stop Obama’s illegal actions on immigration.

After Boehner won he started exacting revenge on those who voted against him. Two members have been removed from the Rules Committee and one has been removed as the sponsor (or cosponsor) of a bill.

According to a recent poll 60% of Republicans who voted wanted John Boehner replaced as Speaker. I am one of those people. Boehner has shown no backbone and his tear filled emotions do not portray an image of a strong leader. Certainly there are appropriate times to cry but this man blubbers when the lights get turned on.

Republicans who opposed Boehner knew there would be hell to pay despite assurances from the Speaker that this would not happen. Here is a shocker, Boehner lied. Of course he is not doing it directly. His surrogates are doing it to keep him from being the one pulling the trigger. It is a cowardly way to do business.

Boehner and the Republicans run around telling us how they plan to turn things around and govern as conservatives but it is all smoke and mirrors. Representatives were more concerned with committee assignments and office space than they were the well being of the Republic. They turned their backs on the people who put them in office.

Boehner now has a larger majority and will rarely need the votes of the small group of actual conservative members but I am willing to bet that things are going to get real nasty real fast.

It is a shame that Boehner, who ridiculed Pelosi’s and Obama’s leadership, has turned out to be quite like them. He is mean spirited and petulant and punishes those who disagree with him.

I remain a registered Republican because you have to have party affiliation to vote in my state’s primaries but I am done with the party.

I am a conservative and will support politicians who espouse conservative values.

On the plus side, this vote and the childish behavior of the crybaby Speaker will allow me to have quite a bit of fun the next time some Republican group calls to beg for my money.

Republicans, enjoy what you have right now because the way you act and govern you will not be in power very long. I would not be surprised to see the Senate flip back in 2016 as the nation gets a new Democrat/Socialist as President and it will all be due to your lack of conservative values.

Mitt Romney lost the 2012 election because millions of Republicans stayed home out of disgust. How many do you think will stay home in 2016?

I won’t stay home because I see voting as a civic obligation BUT I will not be voting for my Representative. I imagine there will be plenty of folks who feel the same way.

The Republicans and the Democrats in Congress are not very different. They are different wings of the same bird and they are taking us in the same direction to the same place.

The biggest difference is Democrats are taking us there on a jetliner and the Republicans are on a freight train.

The end result is the same and with Boehner as the conductor there will be no switching tracks though he might upgrade to the express train.

I might be wrong and the reality is only time will tell but I doubt Boehner will get tough on Democrats after he has been working with them for so long. I would like to see him be as tough on them as he is on the real conservatives (particularly the Tea Party types) in Congress but that is unlikely to happen. He might surprise me but with rumors flying that he will help with amnesty for the law breakers here illegally and with his actions to push a spending bill until the end of the fiscal year I doubt we will see much to be happy with from him.

This country is in decline and the list names leading the charge starts with Obama and includes Boehner…

News From Around The Asylum

The Blame Game

Barry Barry bo arry banana fanna fo fairy, fee fi mo marry, Barry.

Every day is blame day in DC as Barack Obama finds someone or something to blame. Everything that happens that is bad is the fault of someone or something Barry chooses to assign blame to. George Bush is a favorite target of Obama who blames all that is bad on Bush even though the blame lies squarely on Obama’s shoulders.

Obama always takes credit when good things happen. To hear him you would think he was the one who killed Bin Laden.

Today Barry is blaming the “bad apple” insurance companies for people having their insurance cancelled. The linked article points out that fact checkers have ruled that Obama lied (they use the term not being truthful) about being able to keep your insurance if you like it. Obama claims that the terrible insurance plans offered by bad apple insurance companies are the culprits because they were too cheap and dastardly to offer the generous plans Obamacare requires.

Never mind that people put those plans together, liked them and could afford them. No, his majesty B. Hussein Obama has decreed that they are not sufficient to meet your needs and they must go.

But it isn’t his fault the companies cancelled you. It is the insurance company’s fault for offering substandard plans. It matters not to Obama what you like or what you want because you are too stupid to know what is good for you.

Pelosi Says No Deals If Your Taxes Being Raised Are Not Part Of The Deal

Nancy Pelosi has made it clear that House Democrats will not support any agreements to end the sequester that do not include new revenue. New revenue is political speak for taxes. Nancy Pelosi refuses to address the sequester cuts unless she gets to raise taxes. To Nancy, who said the cupboard is bare, we do not have a spending problem, we have a “revenue” problem. In other words the budget mess is not because government spends too much it is because it taxes too little.

Pelosi is a typical progressive in that she never met a tax she didn’t hike. Couple this with her refusal to make actual cuts in spending and you have the recipe for a disaster and that disaster is currently sitting at 17 TRILLION dollars.

The reality is we have plenty of money coming in and would have tons more if the 90 million people who have dropped out of the workforce were employed. Think about that for a moment. If the people counted in the 7.2% unemployment number plus the 90 or so million who have quit looking for work were employed we would have over 100 million people paying taxes which would increase the amount of money taken in quite a bit.

I think I agree with Pelosi in that we need a tax to make things work. My idea is vastly different than hers because she undoubtedly wants to tax the rich even more. I think Republicans can tell Nancy they will agree to a tax increase and then submit a plan that taxes the 47% of workers who pay no federal taxes. When Pelosi cries about fair share and all the other BS she spouts she can be reminded that paying nothing is not a fair share.

Hell now is a great time for Republicans to push a flat tax that everyone pays. Make the tax rate a flat 11% for each and every wage earner. We could eliminate most of the IRS and filing taxes would be so easy. Eliminate ALL deductions and charge people 11% of all income. Then eliminate the Social Security and Medicare taxes (11% of all income will pay for those programs) and include a provision that the rate cannot be raised unless 75% of Congress votes to do so and it must be raised for all wage earners. In other words, any tax decrease or increase must apply to all wage earners. That should stop them from raising taxes so willingly.

The last thing to do is include a provision that any tax money over the amount required to run government must go to pay the debt until the debt is eliminated.

It would be nice to include a provision for a balanced budget but it is unlikely that would have teeth without an Amendment to the Constitution.

Imagine how Pelosi would react if she is promised a tax increase and then that increase includes everyone.

Put it back on her. If the tax increase does not include all wage earners then there is no deal. Or in Obama parlance, no negotiations.

I guess being a terrorist holding people hostage with a gun to their heads is OK as long as it is a Democrat doing it.

Speaking Of Revenue And The Budget

More proof that we do not have a “revenue” problem but a spending problem is revealed in the latest news. The budget deficit in the US is at a 5 year low. The government took in 2.77 TRILLION dollars last fiscal year but it spent 3.45 TRILLION. So even with increased “revenue” government failed to cut spending.

The progressives will tell you that all the cuts that can be made have been made but this is a blatant lie. These people use baseline budgeting and have a number of programs that are on autopilot.

“We’ve made a lot of fiscal progress in the U.S. because of the sequester cuts, tax rates going back to historic norms and the economy improving,” said Bricklin Dwyer, an economist at BNP Paribas in New York. “Politicians have, thus far, avoided the most difficult choices — addressing unsustainable spending on entitlements such as Medicare and Medicaid.”

There are programs that are duplicated all over the government. In some cases there are dozens of agencies that do the same things. There are billions of dollars in waste and unnecessary spending that could be cleaned up to take care of the shortfall.

Until we make the government smaller and get adults running the show things will only get worse.

While a report like this lets the sane among us know the problem is our government spends too much, the progressives will say it indicates we need to tax more.

I agree. See the above item…
