It’s Time For Rep. Peter King to Go

Rep. Peter King is a loud mouth, blow hard who needs to go. Either get him out of Congress or out of the party.

I don’t want to be associated with this guy at all.

He’s a complete sell out:

“It goes against the whole sprit of the Constitution,” King says of the effort to undo Obamacare.

Undoing Obamacare goes against the Constitution, but forcing people to buy insurance, that’s what America is about, right?

Let me look at my notes real quick here…and

moron

He spoke passionately against the course the crazies had now set them on. “It’s going nowhere, there’s no endgame,” he recalls saying. “It’s bad for the Congress. It’s bad for the government, bad for the country.”

For him, it was not a matter of politics, but of conscience. He could not facilitate what he had termed “government terrorism” on the part of the crazies.

“I can’t be party to this anymore,” he told the crowd in HC-5.

Then get out.

We won’t miss you.

Classless: Obama Rejected Request From WWII Honor Vets to Visit Memorial

Earlier today, I posted about the Honor Flight veterans who crashed the barricades at the World War II Memorial. I assumed these guys arrived today without realizing the park would be shut down.

In fact, they expected it might happen and asked President Obama if they could still visit.

He said no.

Classless:

The White House and the Department of the Interior rejected a request from Rep. Steven Palazzo’s office to have World War II veterans visit the World War II memorial in Washington, the Mississippi Republican told The Daily Caller Tuesday.

Palazzo helped the veterans commit an act of civil disobedience against the Park Service Tuesday, when the heroes stormed through barricades around the closed memorial.

Why would he? It’s not like they’re union members.

Jimmy Kimmel sent a crew out to Hollywood Boulevard and asked people if they preferred Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act.

If it wasn’t so sad, it would be funny:

AWESOME: Honor Flight Vets Storm Government Barricades at WWII Memorial

Did the National Park Service actually think a badge and a barricade would stop men who crawled through this:

Yep, and they were wrong to:

Boom!

But they had help:

Love it.

So, The DNC Is Nearly Broke

Forbes is reporting the Democratic National Committee is almost broke:

The Democrats’ numbers speak for themselves: Through August, 10 months after helping President Obama secure a second term, the DNC owed its various creditors a total of $18.1 million, compared to the $12.5 million cash cushion the Republican National Committee is holding.

Several executives at firms that contract to provide services to the party – speaking anonymously to avoid antagonizing what remains an important if troubled client — describe an organization playing for time as they raise alarms about past-due bills falling further behind. And senior strategists close to the DNC say they worry the organization appears to have no road map back to solvency. “They really thought they could get this money raised by the summer,” one said, “but the fact is, from talking to people over there, they have no real plan for how to solve this.”

DNC national press secretary Michael Czin says the committee is working with vendors on a case-by-case basis to pay down their tabs. And filings show the organization over the last five months has made $4.5 million in payments to the Amalgamated Bank and appears to be hewing to a $1 million-per-month installment schedule now. “While we work to retire our debt, we’re not taking our foot off the pedal and are making the investments that will help ensure that Democrats are successful in 2014, 2016, and beyond,” Czin said. He pointed to ongoing work by the DNC’s National Finance Committee, which met over the weekend in Colorado to discuss fundraising strategy.

Sources close to the DNC say officials there have quietly laid the blame in part on the White House.

Why is this not a big deal?

Because all the liberal non-profits are well funded, and when it’s go time, they’ll be the ones firing shots at Republicans with sniper precision.

The political landscape doesn’t need a well funded party anymore.  Donors know this, which is why parties are having a hard time making ends meet.

If only they could just loot the taxpayer like their Dear Leader does…

Obama Refuses to Negotiate with Hostage Taking, Bomb Wearing Republicans

Mean mug.

Mean mugging.

President Obama says the full faith and credit of the United States of America is non-negotiable.

What does that mean?

It means he wants to raise the debt ceiling again and Republicans are waffling.

So what he’s really saying is, his ability to spend money we have to borrow is non-negotiable.

His ability to monetize the debt is non-negotiable.

His ability to borrow on your child’s dime is non-negotiable.

His ability to spend money arming terrorists in Syria is non-negotiable.

His ability to target conservative organizations with the IRS is non-negotiable.

I mean, it’s not like he’s talking with Iran or something.

It’s not the Taliban.

These are Republicans. They can’t be trusted.

They are hostage takers with bombs strapped to their chests.

It’s ok to deal with people who hang homosexuals.

Throw some acid in a young girl’s face? He can work around that.

Threaten his ability to spend as he pleases?

Well, some folks you just can’t reach.

Sen. Ted Cruz Voted for Cloture, But Not “That” Cloture

8570526973_403cff3414_o

Government can be confusing.

The other day I was at the Missouri General Assembly tweeting about votes for a bill that were actually PQ votes.

What are PQ votes?

Exactly.  Government can be confusing.

That’s why when people are out there slamming Sen. Ted Cruz for “filibustering” in opposition to a cloture vote for 21 hours, only to turn around to vote in favor of cloture, I understand.

But Cruz isn’t a hypocrite.

Government can just be confusing:

But Cruz, all along had promised to support the motion proceed, but to filibuster the next cloture motion — the Motion to Invoke Cloture on the resolution itself. In other words, Cruz favors moving into debate on the CR, but not cutting off debate on the CR.

Here were Cruz’s words last night:

The central vote the Senate will take on this fight will not occur today and it will not occur tomorrow. The first vote we are going to take on this is a vote on what is called cloture on the motion to proceed. Very few people not on this floor have any idea what that means and even, I suspect, a fair number of people on this floor are not quite sure what that means. That will simply be a vote whether to take up this bill and to begin debating this bill. I expect that vote to pass overwhelmingly, if not unanimously. Everyone agrees we ought to take this up, we ought to start this conversation.

The next vote we take will occur on Friday or Saturday and it will be on what is called cloture on the bill. That is the vote that matters. Cloture on the bill, the vote Friday or Saturday, is the vote that matters.

The cloture vote Cruz voted for was to take up the bill.

The vote he wants all Republicans to vote against is to end debate.

That’s Saturday.

Hope that clarifies things.

Here’s more.

Inspector General: $67 Million Missing from ObamaCare Slush Fund Over Two Years

4855465597_5ccf66cd3a_o

A Treasury Inspector General took a look at the IRS and how it was implementing ObamaCare.  It found a few, well, issues.

For example, there a bit of money they can’t account for:

TIGTA also found that the IRS did not track all costs associated with implementation of the ACA including costs not charged to the HIRIF.  Specifically, the IRS did not account for or attempt to quantify approximately $67 million of indirect ACA costs incurred for Fiscal Years 2010 through 2012.  Indirect costs include, for example, providing employees with workspace and information technology support.

Imagine the size of that petty cash box.

But wait, there’s more:

Travel abuse:  The report states, “Specifically, we identified 38 IRS employees in two judgmentally selected business units whose travel was charged to the HIRIF in FY 2012, but no portion of their salary and related benefits was charged to the HIRIF.” In short, the IRS was not making sure that employee travel reimbursements had anything to do with the purpose of the fund. This is not the first time that IRS employee travel has created a scandal for the agency.

1,272 IRS Obamacare enforcement agents: The report estimates that total slush fund spending cost taxpayers the equivalent of 1,272 new full time IRS agents.

The IRS requested an additional 859 IRS Obamacare enforcement agents for Fiscal Year 2013: According to the report, “The IRS informed us that it requested $360 million and 859 FTEs for FY 2013 to continue implementation of the ACA. However, the IRS did not receive this requested amount for FY 2013.”

Don’t worry.  All this government waste is really going to lower your health care costs.
