Capitol Hill Updates

  • Note this press release from the office of Republican Congressman Tom Graves, who represents the 9th congressional district in Georgia. He has introduced a great piece of legislation which undoubtedly will be supported by a large majority of the American people, considering very large numbers of Americans opposed ObamaCare. His bill, H.R 5882, is legislation that deauthorizes funding to carry out ObamaCare, officially known as, the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Healthcare and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010," Congressman Graves' outstanding bill will stop...
  • The Democrats in Congress just can't help themselves. The Democrat-controlled United States House of Representatives is following the lead of the Democrat-controlled United States Senate in foisting upon the beleaguered American taxpayers yet another huge big-spending bill, this time worth $34 BILLION for yet another extension of unemployment benefits, now approaching and exceeding over 2 years of benefits. And the Democrats refuse to pay for their socialist spending with either "revenue enhancements" or spending cuts or some other method of balancing the budget as every American family has...
  • The Democrats who control the United States House of Representatives are trying to keep up with their counterparts in the United States Senate as far as their tax and spend, regulate the economy policies go. Even when they try to pretend, for election purposes, that they care about creating jobs and helping American manufacturers they cannot help but pass legislation which will further stifle the American economy. Case in point is the legislation being voted on in the House of Representatives today called the "U.S. Manufacturing Enhancement Act of 2010." According to the Majority-side (...
  • The following is from the office of the Leader of the Republicans in the United States Senate, Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell. Americans just cannot figure out the president or his party which controls both chambers in Congress. The last time they extended the unemployment benefits, the president insisted that it be paid for. Now, Obama insists that the $34 BILLION extension of unemployment benefits NOT be paid for. Talk about schizophrenia! Just recently in less than 9 months, Obama's and the Democrat-controlled Congress's annual deficit went above one TRILLION dollars, and we still...

  • This email from the Office of the Senate Republican Leader, Mitch McConnell, shows a skirmish between a left-wing Senator from North Carolina and Senator McConnell. The Senate Republican Leader is fully justified in holding up all votes on Obama's nominees, until one of the most radical appointees in history, Don Berwick -- who was actually given a recess appointment for a year and a half, without a Senate vote on his extremely controversial nomination -- comes before the Senate to answer questions about his radical positions on socialized medicine. ---------- Moments ago Sen. Hagan (D-...
  • The probable new House Majority Leader next year, the House Republican Whip, Congressman Eric Cantor from Virginia, issued the following statement yesterday blasting the Obama administration for its federal funding of abortion, after promising "pro-life" Democrats who eventually voted for ObamaCare, that his health care reform bill would not fund abortions with Americans' hard-earned tax dollars, which has turned out to be a lie. ---------- Washington, D.C. - House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) released the following statement regarding the discovery by the National Right to Life...
  • Three more United States Senators came out against the radical nominee for the United States Supreme Court, Elena Kagan, yesterday: Senators Saxby Chambliss, R-GA; John Cornyn, R-TX, and Roger Wicker, R-MS. They argue that Elena Kagan will not show judicial restraint if she becomes a Supreme Court justice. ---------- Chambliss Statement on Elena Kagan "Any judge who sits on the nation's highest court must understand that the correct venue for making policy is the legislative branch. After reviewing Solicitor General Kagan's record, I remain unconvinced that she will show this requisite...
  • Many "pro-life" Democrats were fooled into voting for ObamaCare -- which 60% of the American people still want to see repealed -- after they heard Obama's promises that abortion would not be funded with Americans' hard-earned tax dollars. As many of us predicted, this turned out to be not the truth. The votes of these "pro-life" Democrats actually provided the votes for ObamaCare to be passed -- expected to cost over a ten-year period some 2.6 trillion dollars. Note this email from the Office of the Republican Leader in the United States House of Representatives, Congressman John...
