Some important information from Susan Scanlan concerning the National Women's History Museum and the part DKG women of Alpha Alpha State can play . The National Women’s History Museum could sure use your help. I’m hoping you’ve heard the good news that—against all odds!—we got a bill through the House establishing a National Commission to investigate the need for a women’s museum on (and off) the Mall. The scope of this victory includes getting then-Minority Leader Eric Cantor to take the lead in pushing for and passing the legislation. And see what happened to him immediately thereafter. We are working our tails off to get the exact same language passed in a Senate bill, introduced by Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) and Susan Collins (R-ME). (If they change even a word from the House version, then it would have to re-pass the House and the odds against that are astronom- ical.) Harry Reid is going to place the bill on the suspension calendar (this is a procedure for non-controversial bills, wher ...

Congress clearly recognizes the importance of ensuring pay parity for all federal employees, regardless of which pay system they fall into, and I am glad that this inequality was corrected.

Why does obummer-uncare cost more than the insurance you were perfectly happy? What makes it "BETTER?" This will make your blood boil.Orin Hatch (R-UT) asked Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) whether President Obama's proposed socialized healthcare plan will mandate taxpayer funded abortion, she admitted that it will require ‘any service deemed medically necessary or medically appropriate.’ It now appears that the plan's ‘medically appropriate’ umbrella is far more expansive than most Americans could have imagined. In addition to abortion on demand, the weight of the evidence indicates that, in fact, cosmetic ‘gender reassignment’ surgeries for both U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants who suffer from APA recognized ‘Gender Identity Disorder’ (GID) may indeed be provided – free of charge – courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer. The current price tag for such a procedure can exceed $50,000.

Congress governs self under 'Obamacare' print Email this article | MORE by Associated Press Posted on November 1, 2013 at 7:39 AM WASHINGTON (AP) -- Think you're confused by "Obamacare." It's roiling Capitol Hill behind the scenes, too. Members of Congress are governing themselves under President Barack Obama's signature law, which means they have great leeway in how to apply it to their own staffs. For House members and senators, it's about a section of the law that may - or may not - require lawmakers to toss some staffers off of their federal health insurance and into the Affordable Care Act's exchanges. The verdict from congressional officers is ultimately that lawmakers, as employers, have discretion over who among their staffs gets ejected, and who stays. And they don't have to say who, how many or why. What they all say is this: "I followed the law," said Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., echoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and others. But the law as written is open to broad interpretation, inspi ...

Who’s really responsible for the mess in DC? ~ Keith Farrell Who really is responsible for shutting down the government? Gawker laid the blame on ten Republicans solely. But, Democratic Senate leadership along with the White House have refused to work with House Republicans, and, in dereliction of their duty, have failed to take appropriate actions to ensure the functionality of the federal government. They have inflamed and polarized the shutdown and seem more concerned with political games like closing open air memorials and national parks, than they do with working out a solution. Here are the ten most culpable democrats when it comes to the shutdown. 1) President Barack Obama – At the end of the day the president is ultimately responsible for this debacle. He steadfastly refused to negotiate with the House majority party to ensure a Continuing Resolution that would reopen the government and prevent possible default. He chose a hardline position when he had no leverage to do so. Instead of lead ...

The Perverse Logic of the Government Shutdown By Gregory S. Casey President & CEO - The reason the American people hold Congress and the Federal government in such low esteem is on daily display. A government shutdown is a colossal failure of leadership. It's a dumb idea that gets dumber the longer it goes on and there isn't a party involved that doesn't share some blame. For my friends on the right, elections have consequences. If you want to change public policies like ObamaCare you have to win elections. For my friends on the left, if you insist on passing and implementing legislation outside of regular order (which has been the case with ObamaCare) then don't cry foul when the opposition fights back outside of regular order. Process matters. For the Obama Administration, you ARE the President. This is your government. Blame is not leadership and you cannot abdicate your responsibility to an officer of a political party, which is what the Senate majority leader actually is. So much for the obvious. Wha ...

October 07, 2013 In This Issue: Why it's time to start protecting our natural food supply The hidden failure behind Monsanto crops 4 tips to avoid GMO foods Dear Reader, Blowing the Whistle on Monsanto A few weeks ago health advocates were up in arms, myself included. For several days it looked like money-making behemoth Monsanto was going to be handed another "get out of jail free" card. Everyone was convinced the Farmer Assurance Provision – otherwise known as the "Monsanto Protection Act" – had received a three-month extension.If you recall, this was a rider attached to a 6-month emergency spending bill last March. And what it did was take the regulation of genetically altered seeds out of the hands of the USDA and the Federal Courts. This bill was set to expire on September 30, 2013. And for several days media headlines were rife with news that it would be extended for another three months. But just when it looked like this rider wa ...
Obama, Senate Dems hope to break logjam soon with debt ceiling bill Zachary A. Goldfarb 5:45 am President Obama and Senate Democrats on Monday decided to try to break a political logjam that threatens the U.S. economy by advancing legislation to raise the federal debt ceiling as soon as possible. Democrats said they would try to force Republicans to agree to a debt ceiling increase in an effort to ensure the government does not enter a red zone later this month where it may be unable to pay all its bills and be at risk of a historic default. While the White House and Senate Democrats said they would push a $1 trillion bill that would authorize borrowing for a year or longer, they suggested they would accept a short-term bill, perhaps lasting only weeks, if necessary to avoid a default. The debt limit is quickly becoming the central focus in Washington, both because the government shutdown has been partially ameliorated by the recall of nearly 350,000 Pentagon workers and a potential default on the debt is ...
Anti-GMO Campaigners Claim Victory as 'Monsanto Protection Act' Stripped From Senate Bill Organizers cheer, saying the voices raised against genetically modified foods and giveaways to biotech giants were heard - Jacob Chamberlain, staff writer An amendment dubbed the "Monsanto Protection Act," which currently allows large agriculture and biotech corporations to ignore court orders involving the safety of genetically modified seeds, has been stripped from Senate's spending bill that could be voted on as early as Wednesday afternoon. Following an organized campaign against the provision in recent months, its removal was being cheered by food safety and environmental activists as a victory. “Millions of people around the world were outraged when the bill passed originally and removing the Monsanto Protection Act from the current bill is a sign that the food movement has arrived politically. The American people are tired of Monsanto’s lies and the manipulation of our political process and we’re not bac ...

I-522 UPDATE $17.1 Million Worth of Lies How many lies will $17.1 million buy? Enough to sink another GMO labeling initiative? Opponents of I-522, Washington State’s initiative to require mandatory labeling of GMOs, hope so. They’re banking on their ability to broadcast enough lies, often enough, to enough voters, to defeat I-522. And if they do, the GMO labeling movement might not recover. In 13 short days, Washington State voters will begin mailing in their ballots. In 31 days – on November 5 - it will all be over. That’s all the time we have left to raise enough money to reach every voter in Washington State. Our opponents are desperate. And filthy rich. A dangerous combination. Their lies are familiar to us. But maybe not so to millions of voters who are hearing about GMOs for the first time. Who are “they”? The NO on I-522 campaign is funded by Monsanto. Dow. Dupont. Bayer. BASF. And the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA). The GMA has kicked in $7.2 million on behalf of food companie ...

What is it with all these brainless female Democrat Senators? (DRUM ROLL, PLEASE...) Barbara Boxer, Diane Frankenstein, Barbara Mikulski, Mary Landrieu, and Patty Murray just to name a choice few. This is the result of the Women's movement?? God Help us. If you think this is bad you don't want to know about the House. Indulge me in a 'Barack Obama fear mongering moment' ...MAXINE WATERS. Now that's one stupefying terrifying lady..a Nancy Pelosi in blackface. Yes, fellow patriots, these are the witless vermin that force us to vote GOP!!!
Following on the heels of similar legislation introduced in the House, the Senate has now introduced a bill that would provide retroactive pay to federal employees who are furloughed by the shutdown. Known as the Federal Employee Retroactive Pay Fairness Act (S. 1567), the legislation is being introduced by Senators Ben Cardin (D-MD), Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), Mark Warner (D-VA), and Tim Kaine (D-VA). Even though it is not required let's pray that all 800,000 Federal Employees effected will be compensated in Full.

potential silver lining from the Washington Post: House and Senate lawmakers this week proposed legislation to retroactively pay the roughly 800,000 federal workers who are furloughed because of the partial government shutdown that started Tuesday. The House back-pay measure could be up for a floor vote as early as Saturday, according to Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.), who introduced the bill on Tuesday along with sponsor Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.). As of Thursday, 120 lawmakers, including 18 Republicans, had added their names to the measure. “Everyone I’ve talked to about this bill seems to be for it,” Wolf said Thursday of his colleagues in the House. All of the Republicans who co-sponsored the House measure are from Virginia, a state with a high concentration of federal workers. They include Wolf and Reps. Rob Wittman, Scott Rigell and Randy Forbes. On the Senate side, Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) has proposed nearly identical back-pay legislation, with 15 Democrats, including Sens. Barbara Mikulski (Md.), Mark ...
Cheers to: 21 House Republicans who have publicly voiced their support for a no-strings-attached short-term CR that would reopen the federal government: Reps. Lou Barletta (PA), Charlie Dent (PA), Mario Diaz-Balart (FL), Mike Fitzpatrick (PA), Randy Forbes (VA), Jim Gerlach (PA), Michael Grimm (NY), Richard Hanna (MA), Leonard Lance (NJ), Frank LoBiondo (NJ), Pat Meehan (PA), Peter King (NY), Devin Nunes (CA), Erik Paulsen (MN), Scott Rigell (VA), Mike Rogers (MI), Jon Runyan (NJ), Mike Simpson (ID), Bill Young (FL), Rob Wittman (VA), and Frank Wolf (VA). Said Rogers in supporting a temporary clean CR: “I think that would be the adult way to approach it.” Senate Appropriations Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) in continuing to press the case to end the shutdown and pass a long-term funding bill that ends sequester-level cuts: “So that’s what this is all about. This isn’t about numbers. This isn’t about wonky ideas. This is about meeting compelling human needs. In the Labor-HHS subcommittee we ...
WASHINGTON (AP) — A threatened government shutdown only hours away, House Republicans scaled back their demands for delays in the nation's health care overhaul Monday night as the price for essential federal funding. But President Barack Obama and Democrats rejected the proposals as quickly as they were made. "We're at the brink," said Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md. On a long day and night in the Capitol, the Senate torpedoed one GOP attempt to tie government financing to changes in "Obamacare," and House Republicans countered with a second despite unmistakable signs their unity was fraying. The stock market dropped on fears that political gridlock between the White House and a tea party-heavy Republican Party would prevail, though analysts suggested significant damage to the national economy was unlikely unless a shutdown lasted more than a few days. Still, a shutdown would send hundreds of thousands of workers home and inconvenience millions of people who rely on federal services or are drawn to the nat ...

This is all part of NOAA and NWS's efforts to build a Weather-Ready Nation. As Sen. Mikulski said, “We feel that one of the most important jobs that your government can do is help people save lives and save property. That is why we need accurate weather forecasting.” View the entire press conference on C-SPAN:

You need to understand, Republican or Democrat, these guys are POLITICIANS. While I don't assume all politicians are bad people, I do understand many of them know what it takes to maintain their seat in office: Move with the tied. For example, do not be fooled into thinking that democrats are for "marriage equality." The other day, Supreme Court knocked down certain portion of the Defensive of Marriage Act. Now, many of the democrat politicians are acting as if this is such a beautiful day in History, and they some how was for it. That is a huge front. They simply understand that the side they are taking, makes them appear as "good people," which is good for their image, which will gain them votes. But let's speak the facts. Many of the SAME DEMOCRATS that are acting as if they are for "marriage equality," are the SAME DEMOCRATS that voted the DOMA into law! Bill Clinton was the one that SIGNED it into law. Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, Bob Menendez, Tom Harkin, Max Baucus, Jay Rockefeller, Barbara Mikulski ...
I thought it was interesting that DOMA was bi-partisan when it was enacted. Here are a few of the Dems who voted for it then (in the past few years, many of them have talked about a change of mind on the issue: Patty Murray, Harry Reid, Chuck Shumer, *** Durbin, Barbara Mikulski, Blumenaeur, Patrick Leahy, Chenoweth, Steny Hoyer, Rosa DeLauro, Robert Menendez, Jack Reed, Joe Biden, Frank Lautenberg, Dingell, Ben Cardin, Marcy Kaptur, As we know, Clinton signed it into law. Interesting. Pelosi, Wyden, Boxer, Kerry, two Kennedys, DeFazio, Nadler, Mink, Conyers, Waxman, and Sanders were among those voting nay.

Democrats Finally Admitting Obamacare is Bad 12/13/12 From the Washington Examiner: Sixteen Democratic senators who voted for the Affordable Care Act are asking that one of its fundraising mechanisms, a 2.3 percent tax on medical devices scheduled to take effect January 1, be delayed. Echoing arguments made by Republicans against Obamacare, the Democratic senators say the levy will cost jobs — in a statement Monday, Sen. Al Franken called it a “job-killing tax” — and also impair American competitiveness in the medical device field. The senators, who made the request in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, are Franken, Richard Durbin, Charles Schumer, Patty Murray, John Kerry, Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar, Joseph Lieberman, Ben Nelson, Robert Casey, Debbie Stabenow, Barbara Mikulski, Kay Hagan, Herb Kohl, Jeanne Shaheen, and Richard Blumenthal.

CBB, Pam Benson John Brennan came well-prepared Thursday and held his own during questioning at his Senate confirmation hearing to become the 21st director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

"Brennan agreed with Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Oregon, that Americans need to have a full understanding of government rules involving the use of armed drones to conduct targeted killings against American citizens overseas who are considered senior operational leaders of al Qaeda or one of its affiliates. "I have been a strong proponent of trying to be as open as possible with these programs as far as our explaining what we're doing," Brennan said. "So what we need to do is make sure we explain to the American people what the thresholds for action, what are the procedures, the practices, the processes, the approvals, the reviews."

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats, sensing a shift in political momentum, said Wednesday that they were closing in on legislation to temporarily head off deep across-the-board spending cuts, convinced that once federal furloughs and layoffs begin next month, political pressure on Republicans to accept more tax increases will become irresistible. At a closed-door retreat in Annapolis, Md., this week, Senate Democratic leaders struck a populist tone, urging the party to stand its ground in the battle over nearly $1 trillion in military and domestic cuts over 10 years, set to begin March 1. Democrats want a temporary reprieve from those cuts, financed by a mix of spending cuts and tax loophole closings that they believe will rally public support. A presentation by Senator Patty Murray of Washington, who spoke along with Senators Max Baucus of Montana and Barbara Mikulski of Maryland, ran through the huge income gains of the richest 1 percent, amid rising poverty and stagnating middle-class incomes. “D ...
