It’s not their money

Chris Christie spent $24 million taxpayer dollars to hold a special election in New Jersey that recently elected Cory Booker to the US Senate. Ted Cruz led a government shutdown that cost the economy $24 billion, one thousand times the amount wasted by Christie. At the same time the GOP are moaning about the national debt, the GOP are wasting taxpayer money on schemes they support. And who do they stick with the bill? The 99% who are asked to embrace austerity. The 1% refuse to pay their fair share.

Mike just can’t tell the truth. He vows to fight on. Too bad he is in office until 2016.

“The Washington Establishment can’t bring itself to believe that this is why Congress has a poor approval rating – because Washington doesn’t listen to the American people.  It ignores them.  And when the American people can no longer be ignored, the administration shuts down national parks, blocks veterans from going to their own memorials, uses the IRS to target certain groups, and holds hostage critical funding for cancer research, low-income women and children, veterans’ health benefits, border security, and our National Guard.”

 

“Not a game”

According to John Boehner, the events happening in Washington, DC, now are “not a game.” He’s right about that; they are a tired, old movie that the GOP insist on re-running every few months. President Obama plays the part of Austin Powers while Ted Cruz is Dr. Evil, supported by a cast of villains including Utah’s own Mike Lee as Mini-Me. The ratings of the GOP drop every time the movie is run. Critics in the media divide the blame equally, but voters assign more blame to the GOP than to the Democrats. Just imagine how low the GOP ratings would fall if the media did their job and correctly assigned the blame to the GOP.

The Senate voted 79 to 19 to allow voting on the budget. Ted Cruz went down to defeat on his effort to defund Obamacare. He was right in claiming that there are more wacko birds in the Senate than John McCain thought. Fortunately for the country, they are not numerous enough to mount a successful filibuster.

Tonight on Hannity, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz are promoting the repeal of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Ted Cruz labels it the biggest job killer in America. In truth, the biggest job killers in America are the Republicans, particularly the TEA Party Republicans, in Congress who refuse to stimulate the economy enough to fully recover from the Bush Great Recession. Mike and Ted, look in the mirror if you really want to see the biggest job killers in America. Earlier today, I received an email from Mike Lee rescheduling a telephone town hall, apparently so that he could appear on Hannity instead.
