Republicans Holding America Hostage…..Again – ‘McConnell: No Lynch vote unless Democrats relent on bill’

mcconnell1

Senators Hold Policy Meetings On Debt Ceiling

A vote on the Attorney General should be a simple up or down vote.

But when it comes to Republicans and governing…..nothing is simple.

No.

Let’s hold the Attorney General vote hostage in exchange for Democrats caving in on putting an abortion rider into a Human Trafficing legislation.

  • ‘Democrats have pointed out that Lynch’s nomination has been held up in the Senate longer than any U.S. attorney general nominee in three decades’.

Washington (CNN) ‘Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Sunday said he plans to hold up attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch’s confirmation until the Senate passes a now-controversial human trafficking bill’.

“This will have an impact on the timing of considering a new attorney general,” McConnell told CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union.” “I had hoped to turn to her next week, but if we can’t finish the trafficking bill, she will be put off again.”

  • Democrats noticed an abortion provision embedded in the bill that would prevent victims of human trafficking from using restitution funds to pay for an abortion’.

Because a women who is kidnapped or lured into forced labor or sex trade and gets pregnant needs to have that baby…….because it’s a gift form God.

Debunking The Republican Lies – ‘Mitch McConnell Acts Like A Criminal By Offering Lie Filled Alibi For Iran Letter On CNN’

Mitch McConnell :

I think this is a good case of selective outrage. I remember reading about Sen. Robert Byrd when he was the Senate Majority Leader flying to Moscow during the negotiations over the Salt II treaty explaining to the Russians the Senate’s role in treaty ratification, and John Kerry when he was a senator flew to Managua there and met with a communist dictator, Daniel Ortega, and accused the Reagan administration of engaging in terrorism”.

Ummmmmm…….

  • ‘The congressional delegation that went to Moscow was bipartisan’.
  • ‘Senate Republicans also went on the trip’.
  • ‘The trip to Moscow wasn’t designed to sabotage a president’.
  • ‘The Senators delivered a letter from President Reagan to Soviet leaders’.

‘Here is how the Chicago Tribune described Byrd’s Moscow trip’ :

“He (Sen. Byrd) said he will deliver a letter from Reagan to Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev on Tuesday. The senators, he said, want to help the Reagan-Gorbachev summit meeting, set for November in Geneva, “in every way we can.`”
————
‘The Kerry trip was more controversial, but it different from what the 47 Republicans did because Kerry was engaged in a self-appointed fact-finding mission’.

  • ‘He wasn’t speaking for the Senate or threatening to undermine the president’.

‘On the Kerry example, the Boston Globe reported, Within weeks of taking office in 1985, he was off to Nicaragua, accompanied by reporters on a 36-hour, self-appointed fact-finding mission with another freshman, Democratic Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa’.

‘Congressional Democrats had accused the White House of exaggerating the communist threat posed by the Sandinista regime’.

‘So the two senators were publicly castigated when — just days after meeting with Daniel Ortega and other leaders of the regime — the Sandinistas climbed aboard a plane to Moscow to cement their Soviet ties.”

Republicans and ‘Entitlements’ ….Trust Us – ‘Senate GOP budget to break with Paul Ryan’s blueprints’

republican budget entitlement1

Senate Republicans will not include detailed plans to overhaul entitlement programs when they unveil their first budget in nearly a decade this week, according to GOP sources’.

The good news…….

  • ‘The Senate GOP blueprint will not propose reforming Social Security’.

And the bad news…….

  • The GOP budget would balance in 10 years, but it will only propose savings to be achieved in Medicare and Medicaid, without spelling out specific reforms’.

See we’re saving this much money but we can’t tell you how.

“From the standpoint of a budget, the less words of the English language you use, the better off you are,” said Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), a senior member of the Budget panel’.

When it comes to saving money in Medicare and Medicaid, Grassley said it’s preferable to “just have figures in there” instead of spelling out specific reforms, as Ryan did’.

‘Ryan’s plan curbed Medicare costs by giving future beneficiaries below the age of 55 a subsidy that could be used toward private insurance premiums’.

‘His plan raised the eligibility age for Medicare by two months per year starting in 2022′.

Ryan also proposed replacing Medicaid with a block grant program whereby states would received a fixed sum indexed to inflation and population growth to pay for the healthcare needs of lower-income residents’.

‘The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a liberal-leaning think tank, estimated last year that Ryan’s proposals would cut Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program by 26 percent by 2024′.

Republican Family Values – ‘Ted Cruz Makes Little Girl Cry After Scaring Her With His Apocalyptic Rhetoric’

ted cruz

 

Just like his daddy……..

‘Ted Cruz took his doomsday rhetoric way too far on Sunday when he screamed at a little girl that her “world is on fire,” causing her to cry in terror’.

‘During a speech in New Hampshire in an attempt to suck up to the locals and boost his GOP primary chances in 2016, the Texas Republican took an apocalyptic tone as he tried to portray everything President Obama has done as a disaster that is causing America to slip closer to annihilation’:

“It is now or never. I don’t think we’ve reached the point of no return yet. But we’re close. We are close”!

“And I believe if we go four or eight more years on this same path, we risk losing the greatest country in the history of the world”.

“Millions of Americans are realizing this isn’t working”.

“The Obama economy is a disaster. Obamacare is a train wreck. And the Obama-Clinton foreign policy of leading from behind — the whole world is on fire.”

‘A little girl being held by her mother repeated Cruz’s final words as a question. “The world is on fire?” she asked’.

‘In response, Cruz took a time-out from his speech and approached the child and her mother and proceeded to frighten her as if the world as we know is about to be turned into ash’.

“The world is on fire! Yes! Your world is on fire!”
