impeachment

This was such a blatant lie that it was debunked even before the so called Boehner press conference was over.

Why do Republicans lie so much?

Yeah…….Democrats just ‘made it up’………

Why wouldn’t we impeach this president for not protecting and defending Americans in the bloodbath known as Benghazi?” (1)

Coffee With Cathy McMorris Rodgers – ‘Freedom’, ‘Liberty’ and Lies

mcmorris rodgers5


Washington States US Representative 5th District Cathy McMorris Rodgers has voted only 42 times out of the 50+ votes the House of Representatives has taken to repeal, defund or delay in whole or part the Affordable Care Act – Obamcare.

Why only 42 times?

She has taken personal leave 3 times to give birth to their 3 children – so she missed some of the votes to overturn the health care act.

Fortunately for Cathy, she has taxpayer funded Government health care so she doesn’t have to worry.

Cathy waves ‘Freedom’, Liberty’.

But no health care.

“I’m working hard for the people of Eastern Washington” – Cathy McMorris Rodgers.

A Republican World – ‘Senate Nominee Argues Low Minimum Wage Is ‘Appropriate for Iowa’

joni ernst on mimimum wage

‘Iowa Senate nominee Rep. Bruce Braley (D) released a new campaign ad on Tuesday highlighting his Republican opponent’s opposition to increasing the minimum wage’.

To defend itself, state Senator Joni Ernst’s (R) campaign claimed Iowans are best off with their state’s paltry $7.25-an-hour minimum’.

‘The Braley ad features part of a June Iowa Public Radio interview in which Ernst was asked if she — like 65 percent of her fellow Iowans — supported an increase in the minimum wage’.

‘Ernst responded in the negative, explaining, “I do not support a federal minimum wage. Every state has a different economy, different cost of living. I don’t believe that’s the role of the federal government.”

‘It also includes video of a March candidate forum at which Ernst argued that the current minimum wage of $7.25 is “appropriate for Iowa.”

‘A spokeswoman for Ernst told reporters that the ad was part of a “dirty, false campaign,” claiming that since Ernst “grew up working minimum-wage jobs,” she “knows first-hand how important the minimum wage is.”

If you know how’important’ it is, then why keep it so low?

No Longer Republican Extremism – ‘Exclusive: GOP Senate Candidate Caught Saying States Can Nullify Laws’

joni ernst

teabaggers – A person who believes the Constitution only applies to them when they want it to.

This is why it’s impossible to have an intelligent conversation with a teabagger.

‘Joni Ernst, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Iowa, appears to believe states can nullify federal laws’.

No.

They can’t.

‘Article VI of the Constitution. “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof… shall be the supreme Law of the Land.”
