“After consolidating power in Washington, D.C. and state capitals under President-elect Donald Trump, Republicans are moving to prevent large cities dominated by Democrats from enacting sweeping liberal agendas,” The Hill reports’.

“Republican state legislatures are planning so-called preemption laws, which prevent cities and counties from passing new measures governing everything from taxes to environmental regulations and social issues.”

Republicans War On The Poor – ‘Planned Parenthood would lose funding as part of Obamacare repeal, Ryan says’

So……..you take away poor people’s health care and then cut the federal budget that would help poor people get birth control, breast and cancer screenings and more.

But there is no Republican War On The Poor.

‘Planned Parenthood estimated that roughly 40 percent of its funding would be at risk should defunding legislation become law’.

‘The group reported receiving $553 million in government funding in 2014, about half of its total revenue’.

‘Republicans plan to strip Planned Parenthood of hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding as part of their rapid push to repeal President Obama’s health-care reforms, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Thursday’.

‘Ryan said a defunding measure would appear in a special fast-track bill that is expected to pass Congress as soon as next month: “Planned Parenthood legislation would be in our reconciliation bill,” he said at a news conference, in response to a question about plans to defund the organization’.

“It’s Obama’s Fault” – ‘Conservatives ready to support $1 trillion hole in the budget’

Get ready to hear that a LOT!

And to pay for the coming YUGE! deficit and debt, Republicans will take health care away from 20+million poor Americans, cut Medicare benefits, increase Medicare enrollment age, cut Medicaid funding, cut welfare funding, cut unemployment funding and cut food stamps funding because – well the poor are the reason we have such large deficits and debt……

‘Some of the most conservative members of Congress say they are ready to vote for a budget that would — at least on paper — balloon the deficit to more than $1 trillion by the end of the decade, all for the sake of eventually repealing the Affordable Care Act’.

‘In a dramatic reversal, many members of the hard-line House Freedom Caucus said Thursday they are prepared later this month to support a budget measure that would explode the deficit and increase the public debt to more than $29.1 trillion by 2026, figures contained in the budget resolution itself’.

Republicans Governing By Threats – ‘House GOP Revives Obscure Rule to Slash Pay’

republicans7

Now if some government worker objects to anything – whistle blows, gives testimony in Congress critical of Republicans, gives an interview critical of Republicans…..Republicans can just cut their pay……to $1.00.

Yes…..That Makes America Great Again……

January 5, 2017 By Taegan Goddard

“House Republicans this week reinstated an arcane procedural rule that enables lawmakers to reach deep into the budget and slash the pay of an individual federal worker — down to a $1 — a move that threatens to upend the 130-year-old civil service,” the Washington Post reports’.

“The Holman Rule, named after an Indiana congressman who devised it in 1876, empowers any member of Congress to offer an amendment to an appropriations bill that targets a specific government employee or program.”

Why Does Donald Trump Want Hillary Clinton Murdered? – ‘Trump Tries To Change The Subject From Birtherism By Suggesting Hillary Clinton Be Shot’

This is the second time he has suggested that someone (other then The Donald) should shot Hillary Clinton.

Now turn it around.

What if Hillary suggested that someone should shot Donald Trump.

Do you seriously think that the (cough) ‘news’ media would ever – EVER stop asking her about it?

But It’s NOT Obstruction – VOTE REPUBLICAN BECAUSE WE NEED TO INVESTIGATE THE CLINTONS EVEN MORE!!!! – ‘Hill Republicans: Clinton investigations won’t stop if she wins’

‘Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon in a statement said “this is exactly what Americans hate about Washington: before the election has even happened, House Republicans are already plotting what political attacks they might wage against a potential Clinton administration.”

“Republicans are offering nothing more than pure, partisan gridlock, and this is why we must work hard to elect as many Democrats as possible this November,” he added’.

‘That view is shared by top leaders. A source familiar with House Speaker Paul Ryan’s thinking said he considers Congress’ oversight role — including potentially overseeing a President Hillary Clinton — to be an important priority’.

“Rigorous oversight of the executive branch is important no matter who is in the White House,” the source said. “[Ryan is] not known for partisan witch hunts, but his members will conduct robust oversight if needed.”

  • ‘House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) wants answers on the deletion of Clinton emails he says may constitute “destruction of evidence” — and he’s willing to use subpoenas to get them’.

  • ‘Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) is working on a bill to pull the security clearance of anyone who broke rules governing confidential information, a jab aimed squarely at Clinton and her top aides’.
  • ‘And there’s percolating interest among congressional Republicans in sniffing out any connections between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department — a potential new Clinton probe inspired by reports showing foundation donors securing access to Clinton as secretary of state’.
  • ‘Republicans have also signaled interest in diving deeper into questions of whether Clinton or her aides perjured themselves on the email matter’.
