Speaker Boehner on Offensive Against Obama in Religious Freedom Battle

Barack Obama has instigated yet another firestorm over one of his abominable policy decisions.   Obama’s latest outrageous action is the rule which the Obama Administration put forth mandating that faith-based employers  --  including Catholic charities, schools, universities, and hospitals  --  provide services such as abortion-inducing drugs which they believe are immoral.   Such a religious freedom infringement imposed by Obama upon the American people is a result of the passage of the socialized medicine scheme called ObamaCare in early 2010. 

As a result, the calls cascading into the United States Capitol switchboard are unequaled since Obama rammed that very same unconstitutional pro-abortion ObamaCare law through the United States Congress by unconstitutional means. 

Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate Fiddles While America Burns

The Democrat-controlled United States Senate under the leadership of Harry Reid, D-NV, has done virtually nothing since it began on January 5th of this year.  Indeed, the Democrat leadership in the Senate  --  and in the United States House of Representatives, during the leadership (if you can call it that) of San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi when she was speaker for 4 years before the Republicans took control this past January  --  has not passed a budget as required by law for a number of years. 
 
On the other hand, the new Republican-controlled House of Representatives passed its budget, as required by law, earlier this year.  The House Republicans have also passed over 25 major bills to create jobs in America, a nation which has suffered a 9% unemployment rate, on the average, under Barack Obama since he became president almost 3 years ago.
 
Before the Republicans adjourned for Christmas in the House of Representatives last week, they passed a spending bill  --  now signed into law by Obama  --  which will fund the government until the end of the 2012 Fiscal Year on September 30th. 
 

Congressman King's petition is great beginning to ObamaCare's repeal

Months after the worst piece of legislation in American history -- and the most costly piece of legislation estimated to cost upwards of $2.5 trillion -- was passed, the massive effort to repeal Obamacare is growing. Polls show that this highly unpopular piece of socialism is still opposed by the American people as much as it was during the year-long debate and votes in the Democrat-controlled Congress.

A solid majority of Americans want Obamacare repealed. Even the selfish corporations, which gave the final impetus to passing Obamacare by supporting it, are now realizing what a terrible pact with the devil they made to cut out special exemptions for themselves. They are dropping health care plans, increasing health care costs to their employees, and writing off huge expenses due to the imposition of Obamacare on their companies, etc.

Capitol Hill Update: Republicans Vote a Resounding NO to Dems' Omnibus Bill

The Christian Coalition of America will be rewarding those 28 Democrats  --  who joined every single Republican in the House of Representatives voting yesterday  --  with a positive score in its next Christian Coalition of America Congressional Scorecard regarding the bloated and pork-filled Omnibus money bill the House Democrats passed by a margin of 221-202 (with one Democrat voting president, ala state senator Barack Obama who voted present numerous times worried about his political viability if he took a position on many issues; 7 Democrats and 3 Republicans did not vote.) 

Voting for this gigantic spending bill is an absolute disgrace besides the fact that provisions in the bill attack the American family and our culture.  The official name of the bill is the "Consolidated Appropriations Act for FY 2010," H.R. 3288.  The reason the Democrats call it a "consolidated" spending bill or an "omnibus" spending bill is that they could not get their job done, as they promised they would, repeatedly, during the 2006 and 2008 campaigns.  They got only 5 of the 12 spending bills signed into law this year, a record worse than most Republican Congresses.   

Capitol Hill Update: 53 House Republicans Demand Obama Fire "Safe" School Czar

Congressman Steve King, Republican from Iowa, has been leading a crusade to rid the White House of one its most abominable appointments  --  equal to the communist Van Jones, Obama's "clean jobs czar" who was forced to resign through the efforts of Fox News' Glenn Beck  --  that of the "safe schools" czar, Kevin Jennings. 

On Thursday, Congressman King and 52 other Republicans sent a letter to the president demanding that he fire Jennings, a radical homosexual activist who unbelievably now is in charge of the Department of Education's Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools. 

Commentators such as Glenn Beck have revealed that Obama's "safe school czar", Kevin Jennings, ignored the sexual abuse of a child.  Indeed, in his book, One Teacher in Ten, Jennings writes about a 15-year-old student who told him that he was having a sexual relationship with a much older man. 

Incredibly, the only response to this shocking revelation from one of his students that Jennings could muster was, "Are you using a condom?"  In other words, Jennings broke the law when he did not report this sexual abuse of a minor.  Jennings is just one example of the countless radicals which populate the Obama administration. 

Coalition Guest Commentary by Rep. Tom Price - Healthcare: The Conservative Alternative in the House

Perhaps the most blatant "disinformation" being promulgated in the health care debate this year is that there are only two choices for American health care: putting the federal government in charge or allowing insurance companies to run the show. While the President, congressional Democrats in charge, and, to a degree, the media have done all they can to shut out Republican ideas, the truth remains that there is a third path, a correct path.

Pro-Life Movement Gains Victory on House Floor

It has not been all doom and gloom for the pro-life movement since Barack Obama became president. First, Obama overturned President Ronald Reagan's Mexico City policy (maintained by both Presidents Bush) by executive order. The Mexico City policy requires that all non-governmental organizations (NGOs) which receive federal funding must not perform or promote abortion services, as a method of family planning, in other countries.

Then Obama began naming and installing radically pro-abortion supporters into his cabinet, and nominating last month, as his first U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals nominee, a pro-abortion judge. However, on March 18th, the pro-lfe movement won a 318-105 victory on the floor of the House of Representatives.

Republicans in the House offered a parliamentary procedure called a Motion to Recommit (MTR) on a Democrat bill, H.R. 1388, the so-called "The Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act." The Republican MTR sets restrictions on what kinds of groups can participate in federal community service programs. If organizations provide abortions or promote abortions, or engage in lobbying activities, or engage in protesting or union organizing, etc., then they will be barred from being involved with the volunteerism program.
