Here’s the list of “Republican” Senators who voted for an unlimited spending bill through March 2017:

Senators who voted for non-budget

REMINDER ♦ With control of the House and Senate did Majority Leader Mitch McConnell or House Speaker John Boehner use the same level of severity expressed by Harry Reid to put an ObamaCare repeal bill on the desk of Obama for veto?  Simply, NO.

Why not?  If for nothing but to accept and follow the will of the people.  Despite the probability of an Obama veto, this was not a matter of option.  While the method might have been “symbolic”, due to the almost guaranteed veto, it would have stood as a promise fulfilled.

We are not blind to the maneuverings of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and President Tom Donohue.  We are fully aware the repeal vote did not take place because the U.S. CoC demanded the retention of Obamacare.

Leader McConnell followed the legislative priority of Tom Donohue as opposed to the will of the people.   This was again exemplified with the passage of TPPA, another Republican construct which insured the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal could pass the Senate with 51 votes instead of 3/5ths.

We are not blind to the reality that when McConnell chooses to change the required voting threshold he is apt to do so.  Not coincidentally, the TPP trade deal is another legislative priority of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

♦ Another bill, the Iran “agreement”, reportedly and conveniently not considered a “treaty”, again we are not blind.  Nor are we blind to Republican Bob Corker’s amendment (Corker/Cardin Amendment) changing ratification to a 67-vote-threshold for denial, as opposed to a customary 67 vote threshold for passage.  A profound difference.

We are, and should be, questioning the principles of Mitch McConnell, and Bob Corker; both of whom apparently working to deny the will of the electorate within the party they are supposed to represent.

♦ Lisa Murkowski?  A senator who can lose her Republican primary bid, yet run as a write-in candidate, and return to the Senate with full seniority and committee responsibilities?

Did any republican member of leadership meet the returning Murkowski and demand an affirmation of principle within the Republican party?  No, because they are without principle themselves lest we forget minority leader Mitch McConnell working to re-elect Senator Thad Cochran, fundraising on his behalf in the spring/summer of 2014, even after Cochran lost the first Mississippi primary?

Then came the NRSC spending money on racist attack ads, paying Democrats to vote in the second primary to defeat Republican Chris McDaniel.  What principle is being upheld considering the “R” in NRSC is “Republican”.

♦ Virginia 2012, 2013 – When the conservative principle-driven electorate changed the method of candidate selection to a convention and removed the party stranglehold on their “chosen candidates”.  Remember that?  We do.

What did McConnell, the RNC and the GOP do in response with Ken Cuccinelli? They actively spited him, and removed funding from his campaign.   To teach us a lesson in GOP principle?   We learned that lesson.   Representative David Brat was part of that lesson learned and answer delivered.

♦ Who cut the tax rates on lower margin incomes by 50% thereby removing any tax liability from the bottom 20% wage earners? While simultaneously expanding the role of government dependency programs?  That would be the GOP (“Bush Tax Cuts”)

The “Bush Tax Cuts” removed tax liability from the bottom 20 to 40% of income earners completely. Leaving the entirety of tax burden on the upper 60% wage earners. Currently, thanks to those cuts, 49% of tax filers pay ZERO federal income tax.

But long term it’s much worse. The “Bush Tax Cuts” were, in essence, created to stop the post 9/11/01 recession – and they contained a “sunset provision” which ended ten years later specifically because the tax cuts were unsustainable.

obama_delivers budget_The expiration of the lower margin tax cuts then became an argument in the election cycle of 2012. And as usual, the GOP, McConnell and Boehner were insufferably inept during this process.

The GOP (2002) removed tax liability from the lower income levels, and President Obama then (2009) lowered the income threshold for economic subsidy (welfare, food stamps, ebt, medicaid, etc) this was brutally predictable.

This lower revenue higher spending approach means – lower tax revenues and increased pressure on the top tax rates (wage earners)  with the increased demand for tax spending created within the welfare programs.  Republicans focus on the “spending” without ever admitting they, not the Democrats, lowered rates and set themselves up to be played with the increased need for social program spending, simultaneously.

Is this reality/outcome not ultimately a “tax the rich” program?

As a consequence what’s the difference between the Republicans and Democrats on taxes?   All of a sudden Republicans are arguing to “broaden the tax base”.  Meaning, reverse the tax cuts they created on the lower income filers?  This is a conservative position now?  A need to “tax the poor”?   How nice of Republicans to insure the Democrats have an atomic sledgehammer to use against them.

This is a principle?

Here’s a list of those modern conservative “small(er) government” principles:

• Did the GOP secure the border with control of the White House and Congress? NO.
• Did the GOP balance the budget with control of the White House and Congress? NO.

• Who gave us the TSA? The GOP
• Who gave us the Patriot Act? The GOP
• Who expanded Medicare to include prescription drug coverage? The GOP
• Who created the precursor of “Common Core” in “Race To the Top”? The GOP

• Who facilitated the Iranian Nuclear deal?  The GOP
• Who facilitated the Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership? The GOP

• Who played the race card in Mississippi to re-elect Thad Cochran? The GOP
• Who paid Democrats to vote in the Mississippi primary? The GOP
• Who refused to support Ken Cuccinnelli in Virginia? The GOP

• Who supported Charlie Crist? The GOP
• Who supported Arlen Spector? The GOP
• Who supported Bob Bennett? The GOP

• Who worked against Marco Rubio? The GOP
• Who worked against Rand Paul? The GOP
• Who worked against Ted Cruz? The GOP
• Who worked against Mike Lee? The GOP
• Who worked against Jim DeMint? The GOP
• Who worked against Ronald Reagan? The GOP

• Who said “I think we are going to crush [the Tea Party] everywhere.”? The GOP (Mitch McConnell)… and who else said recently the Tea Party needs to be eliminated/destroyed?  Tom Donohue, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

    You are a prisoner in a room with 2 doors and 2 guards. One of the doors will guide you to freedom and behind the other is a hangman — you don’t know which is which.

    One of the guards always tells the truth and the other always lies. You don’t know which one is the truth-teller or the liar either.

    You have to choose and open one of these doors, but you can only ask a single question from one of the guards.

    What do you ask to lead you to the door of freedom?

            OK, it’s only sort of related, but my Ted Cruz moment of truth happened when I realized that he’s depending on the Supreme Court to allow him to take office.

            He’s publicly called for electoral oversight of the Justices, and if he means it and he’s truly off the GOPe reservation and an outsider who will kick behind and take names once he’s President, then the Black Robes rule him out.

            The only way he gets past that is to pretend that he’s the lap dog who is being allowed to bark, and then lower his false flag once the Supreme Court gives him the thumbs up on eligibility, and to counter that the uniparty would simply tell the Black Robes to hold off on a ruling and use the birth issue as a Sword of Damocles to control him during his term.

            One of you logic gurus tell me where I’m wrong. I know you can change the parameters by assuming the Supremes are impartial and independent of the power brokers, but I’m really only looking for plausible scenarios.

              I’m not good with logic puzzles, but your problem is the birth issue. Any one born anywhere in the world to an American parent is a ‘natural born American’ as if he was born in Boston of 5th generation parents on both sides of the family. I thought this issue was settled long ago. This is how Obama is an American….doesn’t matter where he was born, his mom was an American. I can’t stand Obama.

        You ask one guard to ask the other the question. If you ask the liar to ask the other guard the door to freedom, he will ask the guard the door to hangman because he is a liar and will point to the hangman door. If the person you asked was the truth teller and he asked the other guard the liar, the liar would tell you the hangman door. So the other door is the door to freedom. So no matter what door you ask for from either guard, by the time it travels through both the answer will be the wrong answer from the question you asked.

    Former CO Congressman, Tom Tancredo ranting about the Establishment and that he is quitting the GOP – however, he is endorsing Ted Cruz.

    “..it has become obvious that the Republican establishment simply has no intention of ever fulfilling promises made in platforms and campaign speeches. To their mind, there are elections, and then there is “governing,” and governing to them means not messing with a gargantuan government on autopilot.

    The Republican establishment does not want to control spending.
    It does not want to secure the borders or enforce immigration laws.
    It does not care about American sovereignty.
    It has no interest in ending the unaccountable and corrupt culture that has become a hallmark of official Washington.”

      Don’t fall for it. Tancredo is trying to get people to follow lead and switch registration to Independent, locking them out of voting in closed primaries LIKE HIS HOE STATE Colorado.

      On Breitbart, found this very telling comment:

      “Don’t know if this has been mentioned in the 2600 previous comments, but Tancredo is not a friend of Liberty or of the TEA Party. In 2010 here in Colorado Dan Maes of the TEA Party won the Republican nomination for governor fair and square. He went through the precinct caucus, County Assembly, State Convention, and State Primary and won them all by defeating the GOPe candidates. Which appalled the GOPe in Colorado.
      The state Republican Party refused to work with their own duly nominated candidate at all. Knowing that a split in the party would elect the Democrat, they had Tancredo leave the Republican party, register in the Constitution Party, and cut a deal with them. As a minor party, they could name their candidate at will. In return for naming Tancredo as the Constitution Party’s governor candidate, the Republican party financed their governor’s and other candidates’ campaigns, and sent their donors there. Tancredo ran as “the true conservative”, and split the vote to elect the Democrat [ by defeating their own candidate] as intended by the Republican party. The day after the election, Tancredo returned to the Republican party and sat at the right hand of the powerful. Trusting him to be anything but an agent of the GOPe is not wise.”

In the meantime a spot light should shine day and night on their every crooked move! The mafia has taken charge and the god father’s name is Mitch McConnell! Somebody put a horses head in his bed!

Only now reconnecting with ‘politics’ and what a great place to come to and explore current issues from a conservative POV. Should a return to US with my newish second family be likely (and it might w/China playing expansionist games right off shore PI) I will be well equipped to stand my ground as a conservative. So many new friends in CTH make it possible. Thank you and looking forward to helping Mr Donald Trump ‘clean out the stables’.

    From Senator Mike Lee (Facebook):

    Last night while you were sleeping the Senate voted to steal $150 billion dollars from the Social Security Trust Fund. I joined 34 of my colleagues in a vote to prevent this raid. I would like to thank Senator Rand Paul for leading the fight to protect to Social Security from the thieves in Washington, who seem to think that if they steal from the American people at night while they are sleeping that they will get away with it. I was proud to vote with Senator Paul on his point of order that would have protected Social Security, and I ask you to help me shine a light on what Washington has tried to hide from you in the darkness of night.

    If everyone who sees this message shares it, it will reach millions of Americans. As someone who has been fighting for years to reform our broken government in Washington, I know it is exhausting, I sympathize with your frustration, and I understand your impatience. But don’t give up. Washington wants you to give up.

    Just remember, a vote to raid social security in the middle of the night in a desperate attempt to perpetuate an unsustainable spending addiction isn’t a sign of strength. It is a sign of weakness.

        Back then, Mass holes were pouring over NH border in droves to escape the choking taxes in Mass. As soon as they arrived in the Live Free or Die state, they all breathed a collective sigh of relief at the low taxes and freedom endemic in NH. That didn’t last long–they all started clamoring for all the welfare and “free” goodies they left behind.

        And then they started organizing and entering politics. Before long, they owned the southern tier cities and towns, and they gave rise to such political hacks as Jean Shaheen and Kelly Ayotte, both liberal senators (no matter which party they caucus with).

        NH is now the “Live Free on Everybody Else” state. It’s disgusting.
