The GOP Tax Plan Is More Democrat than Conservative

More conservative than Reagan


+
The GOP, led by the lying Republicrats Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, are about to screw America with their tax plan, both in the short and long term.

The Republicans have a historic opportunity to dismantle the democrat, Marxist/socialist/communist agenda, setting it back at least a generation. They have the presidency, control of both houses of congress, 33 governorships, and have gained thousands of state level seats under the eight years of Obama. They have the ability and authority to institute a tax plan that is constitutional and conservative without a single democrat vote, but time after time they continue to cave to the democrats, screwing Americans in the process.

The GOP should be slashing taxes, preferably enacting something like a LOW FLAT TAX with NO deductions so that EVERYONE has a stake in our government. Instead, they are INCREASING the numbers of people who pay ZERO taxes, yet these people also consume the most in government resources, AND they get to vote to receive even more.

The GOP, if they are the conservative champions of the Constitution like they claim they are, would be slashing unconstitutional spending that would would make tax cuts very easy. They would also be dismantling government agencies wholesale. Close the Department of Education and return education to the states. Dismantle the Department of Energy that has done a grand total of nothing to ensure our energy independence while costing us hundreds of billions of dollars. With a FLAT TAX and zero deductions, and a ONE PAGE TAX CODE, there would no longer be a need for the IRS, whose sole reason for existence is to use the tax code as a weapon against citizens and political opponents.

The American citizen does not exist to give the government whatever it wants.

With a few exceptions, the GOP has effectively become the Republican wing of the democrat party. They do not fundamentally disagree with the democrats on the size, scope, and role of government. They just want to be the ones in charge of it. And every time Republicans gain a mandate from the conservative electorate, they squander it by caving into the democrats. We now effectively have one party rule in America.

This is something that elections won’t fix.

Is America Now a Failed Socialist State?

Are we a failed socialist state

Boehner 2.0? Don’t Expect Much From Paul Ryan. He’s Already Surrendering

You remember John Boehner, don’t you?  You know.  That fake (R)epublican who as Speaker of the House oversaw an increase in the debt of more than $4 trillion.  That RINO who surrendered to Barack Obama at EVERY turn.  That gutless wonder who when given the leadership of the House said “What do you expect me to do? We only control one half of one branch of government?”  Then, when actual conservatives gave the GOP control of both houses, surrender-monkey Boehner said “What do you expect me to do?  Obama will just veto what we send him if we don’t give him what he wants.”  Yeah, that guy.  The one that everyone except democrats hated, and were ready to take up pitchforks and torches to run out of town.  The good news?  He’s now GONE.  Thank the Lord for that.  The bad news?  Boehner’s mini-me has been crowned as Speaker.

First of all, when Nancy Pelosi and many other democrats are praising Paul Ryan, you KNOW you’ve picked the wrong guy.  We didn’t have to wait long for confirmation.  Case in point, Ryan’s pre-battle surrender over defunding Planned Parenthood.

When you have an organization that has been PROVEN to be breaking the law, that is murdering millions of babies and selling their body parts for profit in violation of the law, that provides little in the way of actual healthcare services contrary to the claims of supporters, AND taxpayers are being forced to pay for it despite moral and religious objections, it should be a NO-BRAINER to end taxpayer funding for such an organization.

So, what does the new Speaker of the House Paul Ryan say about the fight to end taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood? 

“I think we need to be very clear about what we can and cannot achieve and not set expectations that we know we can’t reach given the constraints of the Constitution,”

The only reason Ryan and the GOP CAN’T achieve what conservatives want is because the establishment, spineless, surrender-monkeys refuse to even engage in battle for what is RIGHT.  They are only interested in keeping their seat at the table, no matter who they have to lie to so they can.  They are “conservatives” when they want to be reelected, but immediately betray those who put them in power as soon as the polls close.

What does this mean?  It means that the GOP led by establishment RINOs is merely the democrat wing of the Republican party.  We effectively have one party socialist rule now, with a small handful of conservatives leading the insurgency to restore constitutional sanity.

What it also means is that the same fervor that unseated Eric Cantor, forced Boehner to resign and retire, and prevented Kevin McCarthy from running for Speaker must be rekindled and fanned into an inferno to get rid of more RINOs.  I hate to say this, but we must FIGHT LIKE DEMOCRATS.  They are relentless in pursuit of their agenda.  I hope it’s not already too late to save this nation, but I fear it is.  We must keep fighting and save what we can.

Paul Ryan Doubtful About Defunding Planned Parenthood

November 1, 2015 5:02 pm

(CNN) – Paul Ryan doesn’t believe Planned Parenthood should get one “red cent” from taxpayers — but he cautioned Sunday against expectations that he’ll be able to pull federal funding for the organization now that he’s House speaker.

“I think we need to be very clear about what we can and cannot achieve and not set expectations that we know we can’t reach given the constraints of the Constitution,” Ryan told CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union.”

The women’s health organization has long drawn the ire of anti-abortion lawmakers, but efforts to pull federal funding for it increased after activists released undercover videos accusing Planned Parenthood of breaking federal laws by selling tissue and organs from aborted fetuses.

“I don’t think Planned Parenthood should get a red cent from the taxpayer. I’ve always believed that, even before these disgusting videos came out,” Ryan said. “But I believe we need to do our oversight. We’re just beginning to start a committee to investigate Planned Parenthood. That’s important. So the special committee on Planned Parenthood, I think, should be in the driver’s seat overseeing this process.”

Bash asked, “Will you defund Planned Parenthood?”

“This is what I mean when I say being an effective opposition party. I think being an effective opposition party means being honest with people upfront about what it is we can and cannot achieve,” he said.

“But we also have to push issues where we can push issues, we have to speak truth to power,” he added. “We have a president that isn’t willing to listen, that isn’t going to sign lots of our bills into law, we have a Senate that has a very difficult process when it comes to actually getting bills voted on, so knowing that we have those constraints, we have to operate within those constraints.”

Campaign Obama vs. Dictator Obama on Immigration

There are two ways one can view Barack Obama, neither of them flattering.  He is either a STUPID liar who can’t remember which lies he has told, or he is a PATHOLOGICAL liar who lies without remorse or conscience with specific intent to harm.  The mounting evidence supports the latter.  Obama’s OWN WORDS on immigration ‘reform’ bear this out.

When Obama was in campaign mode, he gave a constitutional answer saying that he didn’t have the authority to implement unilateral executive action on amnesty.  Now he says he’s tired of waiting on congress, and MUST act.  I agree with ‘Campaign’ Obama on this issue, and condemn ‘Dictator’ Obama.

There’s absolutely nothing legal or constitutional about the president unilaterally establishing a “uniform Rule of Naturalization,” which is a power SPECIFICALLY  delegated to congress in Article 1, Section 4, para 8 of the Constitution. And just because the congress doesn’t act WHEN or HOW the president wants them to, there is no trigger in the Constitution that magically gives the president to act unilaterally. The president’s job is to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed” (Article 2, Section 3).  If the president doesn’t like a law the congress passes, he can veto it. If they override the veto, he MUST obey and enforce the law, and can’t just sign it away and ignore it with signing statements and executive orders.  If he doesn’t like an existing law, he can’t just choose NOT to enforce it. It must be ruled unconstitutional by the SUPREME COURT (not the president), or repealed by congress. That’s the CONSTITUTIONAL process. Period. Obama in his own words, when he was running for office, and blaming Bush for everything, said EXACTLY this. But now he pretends that there is now some new found power for him to act unilaterally in a way that will materially damage this nation. He knows the flood of illegals will damage our economy and harm Americans. Go listen to the audio of Obama’s own book. He says it in there, so he can’t deny he once at least pretended to think this way.  Listen to him on the campaign trail, or with UNIVISION.  He said REPEATEDLY that he DOES. NOT. HAVE. THE. AUTHORITY. TO. ACT. UNILATERALLY.  But now he is flip-flopping to say he MUST act, and WILL act, and that he somehow has the power to act.

We are being backed into a corner.  We have all three branches of government acting unconstitutionally, and refusing to employ checks and balances to restrain the other branches of government.  Those three branches have now neutered the military, which by virtue of their oath of office/enlistment makes them the last governmental check on a tyrannical government.  Should Barack Obama attempt to implement this amnesty, on top of the other damaging pseudo-amnesties he has already illegally and unconstitutionally implemented, and should congress and the Supreme Court not IMMEDIATELY impeach him and rule his acts unconstitutional, OR in the absence of such action should the military fail to honor their oath to protect and defend the Constitution against ALL enemies, both foreign AND domestic, then American citizens and patriots will have no choice remaining but to remove and replace this government.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security-

Call Obama’s Bluff

I find it hard to agree more with Mr. Krauthammer on this one.  Obama has no real plan, and rejects any proposal from republicans and conservatives that actually cuts spending and works to achieve a solution that is longer term than Obama’s reelection campaign campaign in 2012.

Boehner and McConnell are talking tough, but AS USUAL are being played like fiddles, partly because of their ineptitude, and partly because I firmly believe they are both RINO’s at heart.  Boehner was an ineffective minority leader, and isn’t doing any better as majority leader.   Every time he’s forced to take a stand, HE CRIES AND CAVES IN.

Obama is lying to America about the what will happen if we hit the debt ceiling.  We have enough revenue to pay for Social Security, Medicare, the service on our debt, and the military and its pensions.  Of course Obama and the democrats would have to cut spending on other spending that isn’t quite so critical, like, say the EPA, IRS, Dept of Energy, Dept of Education, and many other worthless agencies and pork projects that aren’t giving the taxpayers an adequate return on their investment.  But Obama and the democrats won’t even DISCUSS the possibilities.  It’s “let me spend all I want, or we start starving seniors and quit paying the military.”

Republicans, you SHOULD be calling Obama’s bluff, but as a party you don’t have the spine to do it.  You are more worried about your careers and some people getting mad at you than doing the right thing for America.

So, here’s what I think will happen.  The republicans, lead by back stabbers like John McCain, Lindsey Graham”nesty”, and John Boehner, will cave in to Obama’s schemes, they will raise the the debt ceiling accompanied by basically meaningless so-called “reforms” that turn out to be worthless at reducing spending or debt, just as in the budget battle last fall, Obama and the democrats will keep spending at a record pace, credit agencies will STILL downgrade our credit rating because there will be no long term plan to fix the exploding debt, and we will hit the debt ceiling AGAIN, and with even more catastrophic, real impacts.

I want to be wrong on this. Someone please convince me that I am. Continue reading

House Rebukes Obama on Libya, Stops Short of Funding Cutoff

I don’t claim to be any smarter than the next guy, but it didn’t take a genius to predict this one. I predicted this outcome on a FB post about the original non-binding resolution.

A positive vote on the NON-BINDING resolution, but let’s see how many “were against it before they were before it” this afternoon when they vote on the binding law. Let’s just say I would be surprised if they actually make Obama pull out of Libya.

Mike Pence of Indiana had this to say about voting NOT to defund our involvement in the Libyan conflict:

“Once American military personnel are engaged in hostilities, this Congress has an obligation to stand by our troops and do everything in our power to make sure our soldiers have the resources they need to get the job done and come home safe,” said Pence.

Mr. Pence, on this issue, you are an idiot. Apparently all the imperial president has to do is send troops to any place in the world he desires and pick a fight. Then, according to your logic, you MUST fund the operation.

Let me ask you Mr. Pence, and all republicans who voted NOT to defund this operation, is it “standing by our troops” to allow them to be sent into battle in a place where we have no business or national interest, and then spend billions of dollars while getting who knows how many of our soldiers killed? When you say “do everything in our power to make sure our soldiers have the resources they need to get the job done and come home safe,” isn’t it kind of stupid to send them to do a job that they shouldn’t be doing, where many of them most assuredly WON’T “come home safe?”

With support like yours, I think I’d rather go it alone.

Take note of all the RINO’s who did the Kerry-esque flip-flop, they-were-against-it-before-they-were-for-it move.

81 Republicans flip-flopped their votes from the previous resolution.  Here are all 89 Republicans who voted against defunding the Libya operation: Continue reading

9% Unemployment, $14 Trillion In Debt, & No Budget… It’s Bonus Time!

9% Unemployment, $14 Trillion In Debt, & No Budget… It’s Bonus Time!

Posted on May 25, 2011 at 10:13am by Mike Opelka Mike Opelka

Let’s role play a little situation.  (Try not to make the obvious comparisons to Congress.)

  • Your company is hemorrhaging cash, falling deeper into debt than even your accountants can imagine.
  • You choose to INCREASE spending, claiming “ya gotta spend money to make money.”
  • You are also so busy arguing with middle management that you can’t find time to make a budget that might get you back on track.
  • It appears that your job is about to be eliminated.
  • There is only one thing left to do – give bonuses to as many employees as possible!

Here’s the assignment — explain your actions to shareholders. They are especially interested in hearing your thought process on the bonuses.

If the exercise seems to be too far removed from reality and you might argue that it is a waste of time, think again.  This is exactly what happened in Congress last year. House members, both Democrats and Republicans, paid large bonuses to staff members.

Richard Simon of the Los Angeles Times reports:

Even as deep federal budget cuts loomed at the end of last year, members of Congress from both parties paid taxpayer-funded bonuses to their staffs.

Overall, House members spent about $21.5 million more on their office payrolls for the fourth quarter of 2010, when bonuses are traditionally paid, than they spent for the average of the three previous quarters, according to LegiStorm, a Washington group that tracks congressional pay.

Defeated and retiring lawmakers paid an average bonus of about $4,000. Returning lawmakers paid an average $2,300, the group found.

Representatives contacted for the story vigorously defended the payment of bonuses, some with curious logic. Consider the thoughts of California Congressman Mike Honda:

“Recruiting quality staff for quality constituent services is difficult enough given limited resources,” said Rep. Mike Honda (D-San Jose), who paid an average bonus of about $3,700. “Skimp on salaries further and you will skimp on constituent services, to the detriment of the district.”

Among the 53 member of the California Congressional delegation, Honda was not alone as the staff of 20 California Congressional offices we paid bonuses. Meanwhile, the state of California faced a similar budget crisis as the country, but the governor did not pay bonuses, opting instead to furlough employees. The Furlough Friday Program cost workers an average of 18 paid days in both 2009 and 2010.

As another example of just how oblivious Congress seems to be to the dire reality of our financial crisis, is it any wonder that voters have such a low opinion of elected officials? A recent Rasmussen Poll shows a whopping 9% of voters think Congress is doing a good or excellent job, and 50% rate Congressional job performance as “poor.”
