Obama Goes Around GOP Leaders, Calls Rank-And-File Republicans For Dinner Meeting

 

 

“The President greatly enjoyed the dinner and had a good exchange of ideas with the Senators,” a senior administration official said.

The guest list included Republican Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Bob Corker of Tennessee, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Dan Coats of Indiana, Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, Richard Burr of North Carolina, Mike Johanns of Nebraska, John Hoeven of North Dakota and Saxby Chambliss of Georgia.

Republicans have since accused the administration of trying to amplify the impact by taking steps like releasing illegal immigrants from Southwestern jails. But they’ve also ripped the administration for its apparent overstatements — such as a claim, later shown to be exaggerated, by Education Secretary Arne Duncan that teachers were receiving “pink slips.” One district in West Virginia later revealed that its teachers had been sent transfer notices, but it had nothing to do with the sequester.”

 

 

Republicans and Taxes

 

 

 

Do These A**holes Have Any Principles At All … No Wonder They Lose , And Lose . Since The Government Produces Nothing Of Value Raising “Revenue” Is Just Another Term For Picking Our Pockets . What They Spend Costs Us .

 

 ” Over the Thanksgiving weekend, the false congressional fiscal conservatives in the Republican Party began to reveal their true selves. Led by the Republican presidential standard bearer in 2008, Arizona Sen. John McCain, at least a half-dozen Republican members of Congress have renounced their public promises never to vote to raise taxes. In the case of Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., Congressman and Senator-elect Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., they had restated their promises, directly or indirectly, as recently as last month during their successful campaigns. Did they blatantly dupe the voters? Did they genuinely change their minds? Did they ever sincerely accept the pro-freedom anti-tax logic?

The Founders certainly embraced the pro-freedom anti-tax logic, as they gave us a Constitution that barred the federal government from imposing any direct tax on any persons. That was part of the genius of the document. If the feds really needed cash, they’d need to tax the states. If the states were feeling over-taxed, they could block federal taxes in the Senate, where for 135 years senators were chosen by state governments as delegates to the Senate, rather than elected by voters. This procedure, too, was part of the Founders’ genius. It came about in order to assure a place at the federal table for the states, many of which were older than the federal government and all of which retained their sovereignty when they voluntarily joined the union. This procedure for choosing senators was also a check on the growth of the federal government. ”

 

It’s As If They Are Searching For A Way To Ensure Minority Party Status In Perpetuity . As Much As We Abhor The Democrats And What The Stand For We Have To Admit That They Have Guts And Are Willing To Fight For Their ( however misguided ) Beliefs . Where Is That Passion On The “Freedom” Side Of The Aisle ?
