Senate confirmation vote on Burwell expected Thursday. Several outlets report that Sylvia Mathews Burwell’s nomination to serve as the next HHS Secretary moved forward Wednesday. As Reuters (6/5, Morgan) reports, the Senate approved a procedural measure to limit debate on the nomination, clearing the way for a confirmation vote on Thursday. The piece also notes, as many do, that Burwell is expected to be confirmed. The Wall Street Journal (6/5, Radnofsky, Subscription Publication) describes Burwell’s relatively easy path to confirmation, noting that many top Republicans that oppose the health law she will oversee nevertheless backed her nomination. The National Journal (6/5, Novack, Subscription Publication) lays out which Republicans, including Sens. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Richard Burr of North Carolina, supported Burwell in the vote. The Washington Times (6/5, Howell) highlights some of the key “no” votes, however, including Republican Sens. Pat Roberts of Kansas, Tom Coburn of Oklahom ...

Good for Republican Sens. Dean Heller (Nev.), Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Kelly Ayotte (N.H.) for voting to end debate on renewing unemployment benefits. We are one vote away from restoring unemployment insurance to 1.7 million Americans who need this vital lifeline to support their families as they actively search for job. I am not giving up the fight and neither should you.

World War II Memorial Barriers Pushed Through By Crowd WASHINGTON — A crowd converged on the World War II Memorial on the National Mall on Sunday, pushing through barriers to protest the memorial's closing under the government shutdown. Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah, along were former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, were among those gathered Sunday morning. Cruz said President Barack Obama is using veterans as pawns in closing the memorial. "Let me ask a simple question," Cruz told the crowd. "Why is the federal government spending money to erect barricades to keep veterans out of this memorial?" The crowd chanted "Tear down these walls" and "You work for us." Protesters sang "God bless America" and other songs as they entered the memorial plaza. "Our vets have proven that they have not been timid, so we will not be timid in calling out any who would use our military, our vets, as pawns in a political game," Palin told the crowd.
Everybody keeps making a big deal over Ted Cruz's 20hr filibuster oratory. When Wendy Davis did her 13 hour filibuster speech, she did it by herself with NO help whatsoever. Ted Cruz was helped by Republican Sens. David Vitter of Louisiana, Mike Lee of Utah, Jeff Sessions of Alabama, Pat Roberts of Kansas, Mike Enzi of Wyoming, James Inhofe of Oklahoma, Jim Risch of Idaho, Marco Rubio of Florida and Rand Paul of Kentucky….so it’s hardly the 2nd longest in history. (BTW…the longest was by Sen. Strom Thurmond for 24hrs 18 mins AGAINST the Civil Rights Act….whether you agree with his stand or not at least he did it by himself.)

Immigration bill that passed Senate contained help for seasonal seafood employment SEAFOOD.COM NEWS [USA Today] By Fredreka Schouten - June 28, 2013 - USA Toda WASHINGTON, A compromise immigration measure that would dramatically increase border security also contains provisions sought by industries that use cultural-exchange programs to recruit youngsters from overseas to work as au pairs, camp counselors and in an array of other seasonal jobs. One provision tucked into the deal brokered by Republican Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee and John Hoeven of North Dakota, for instance, would allow Alaska's seafood processors to employ foreign youngsters on a summer-work travel program — overturning a ban the Obama administration put in place last year to protect foreign exchange students from jobs the U.S. government deems dangerous. Another measure would designate fish processing in the state a "shortage occupation," allowing the industry to quickly hire more overseas seasonal workers under a new "W" guest-work ...
Sorry everyone for the repost (for those who actually saw the first post), but as you know, many times FB will censor a news story from a Republican-leaning news outlet. They admit to doing that. So, here is the list again. ~JH Here are your 14 RINOs. And yes, ALL of the Dems. in the Senate voted in favor. Republican Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Marco Rubio (Fla.), Jeff Flake (Ariz.) — the four GOP authors of the legislation — and Sens. Bob Corker (Tenn.), Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Jeffery Chiesa (N.J.), Susan Collins (Maine), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Dean Heller (Nev.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), John Hoeven (N.D.), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Lamar Alexander (Tenn.) voted for the 1,200-page bill.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has filed for cloture on the border security agreement to the immigration reform bill, setting up a key vote Monday evening that would pave the way for the Senate to pass the bill by the end of next week. Sixty votes will be required to approve the procedural motion Monday, and the deal reached this week by Republican Sens. Bob Corker and John Hoeven with the Gang of Eight means that as many 70 senators may vote for the final bill. The "Border Surge" amendment would double the number of Border Control agents to 40,000 and guarantee the completion of a 700-mile fence along the southern border, among other security measures sought by Republicans. "We'll finish the bill, I repeat, before recess," Reid said. For more information...
They speak of America spending too much money but are so quick to spend over 30+ billion on boarder security and spend much more on funding another war but can't find the money to put America jobs and pass bills for infer structure to help rebuild America! Momentum shifts in immigration debate as Senate nears 70 votes By Alexander Bolton - 06-21-13 05:00 AM ET Photo by Getty Images Momentum has shifted in the battle over immigration reform, putting Senate Democrats in a position to pass a bipartisan bill with well over 60 votes. Republican lawmakers predicted Thursday that as many as 15 Republicans could vote for comprehensive immigration reform legislation, putting the bill’s sponsors in striking distance of their 70-vote goal. The bill’s sponsors scored a victory Thursday when they announced a deal with Republican Sens. Bob Corker (Tenn.) and John Hoeven (N.D.) to double the number of border patrol agents to 40,000. The compromise also mandates the construction of 700 miles of fencing along the U.S. ...
GUESS WHO WILL FOOT THE ILLEGAL ALIEN COSTS!! DHS admits it does not track immigrants who become welfare dependent, pursued zero cases last year In a response letter to four top Republican lawmakers, the Department of Homeland Security revealed it initiated only one case against an immigrant for becoming a “public charge,” or being primarily dependent upon the government, in fiscal year 2012. The case was later withdrawn. While the department’s response to Republican Sens. Jeff Sessions, Chuck Grassley, Orrin Hatch and Pat Roberts’ August oversight request offered an overview of the centuries-old federal public-charge restrictions, it noticeably avoided several of the senators’ direct questions and demonstrated potentially significant inadequacies in record-keeping by immigration officials, who legally should be enforcing public-charge rules for immigrants both inside and outside of the country. (RELATED: Is DHS ignoring law barring immigrants who are dependency risks?) The response, for example ...
Alaska's Republican Senator Murkowski: "This is a hard issue. It is hard because it... Marriage is such a deeply personal issue. Deeply personal. And there may be some that when they hear the position that I hold, that are deeply disappointed. There may be some who embrace the decision that I have made," Murkowski told the Anchorage affiliate of NBC, KTUU, in an interview to be aired later today. "I recognize that it is an area that, as a Republican, I will be criticized for." Murkowski is the 55th member of the Senate to endorse marriage equality and joins Republican Sens. Rob Portman (Ohio) and Mark Kirk (Ill.).
BEDFORD: A House Divided: The Wacko Birds and their war on DC 11:34 PM 06/09/2013 Christopher Bedford Associate Editor A new breed in town There is rebellion afoot in the United States Senate. A new breed of conservatives and libertarians are loosed, unconcerned with The New York Times, unfettered by back-bench rank and unintimidated by Washington politics. Elected over the past three years, Republican Sens. Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz have had a meteoric impact in Washington, soaring to grassroots stardom, crashing into the Democratic majority and raining down on the old bulls of the Republican Party. Ads by Google Dubbed “Wacko Birds” by top Republican John McCain, these three wear the senior Arizona senator’s scorn as a badge of honor. The Democrats and Republican leadership are furious. And it isn’t simply because these young upstarts exist — it’s because they’re scoring real points. Using the difficult and arcane rules of the Senate to their advantage, they have several victories u ...
Immigration Reform Bill Passes First Test On Senate Floor Posted: 06/11/2013 2:50 pm EDT | Updated: 06/11/2013 5:16 pm WASHINGTON -- The Senate immigration reform bill passed its first procedural hurdle on the floor Tuesday in a 82-15 vote, with only Republicans voting to block the bill from moving forward. All Democrats voted for the bill to proceed. Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley (Iowa), John Boozman (Ark.), Ted Cruz (Texas), Jim Inhofe (Okla.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), Mike Lee (Utah), James Risch (Idaho), Tim Scott (S.C.), Jeff Sessions (Ala.), Richard Shelby (Ala.), David Vitter (La.), Mike Enzi (Wyo.), John Barrasso (Wyo.), Mike Crapo (Idaho), and Pat Roberts (Kan.) voted to stall the bill. The three senators who did not vote were Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska.), Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), who is a member of the "gang of eight" that drafted the legislation. The vote decided whether to proceed to an amend-and-debate period during which lawmakers can continue to mold the final legisl . ...
The bill is co-sponsored by another Oregon Democrat leader, Sen. Jeff Merkley and Republican Sens. Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell from KY.

Republican Rep. Pat Strachota, a key member of the Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee, said “a majority” of the 60 Assembly Republicans support the major tax-code changes announced today by Rep. Dale Kooyenga, a CPA who is also a JFC member. Kooyenga said the plan, summarized in a 27-page memo by the Legislative Fiscal Bureau, is also supported by key conservative Republican Sens. Paul Farrow, Leah Vukmir and Glenn Grothman. Kooyenga said he was meeting this afternoon with Senate President Mike Ellis, whose support is crucial. Kooyenga said only about $5 million of the $450-million cost of his changes would be paid for by eliminating almost 20 tax credits – credits he said are now claimed by less than 1% of all tax filers.

The Brief: Top Texas News for March 7, 2013 by David Muto March 7, 2013 The Big Conversation Texas' U.S. senators on Wednesday helped stage one of the longest old-fashioned filibusters in years. Republican Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz yesterday joined Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., in an epic filibuster over the Obama administration's drone program, helping stall the confirmation of John Brennan, the president's nominee to lead the CIA. Paul began speaking shortly before noon and did not leave the floor for nearly 13 hours. However, questioning from his Republican colleagues — many of whom launched into small speeches of their own — offered him some relief. "I would note that your standing here today, like a modern Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, must surely be making Jimmy Stewart smile," said Cruz, who returned to the floor throughout the day to read from Shakespeare's Henry V, quote Patton and compare Paul to the heroes of the Battle of the Alamo, which on Wednesday celebrated its 177th anniversary. Cruz a ...
(CNN) -- Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham have vowed to hold up a full Senate vote on CIA Director nominee John Brennan until they get answers about the U.S. Consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya.

From the Saturday 2/23/2013 edition of the Maryland Gazette, page A4: Gun Control Moves Ahead - After nearly five hours of debate Thursday, the Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee approved a mostly intact version of Gov. O'Malley's gun control bill. The committee voted 7-4 in favor of the Senate Bill 281. Seven Democrats voted for the bill, including Democrat Sens. Brian Frosh, Lisa Gladden, Jamie Raskin, Bobby Zirkin, Anthony Muse, Jim Brochin and Jennie Forehand. Democrat Sen. Norman Stone voted against the bill along with Republican Sens. Nancy Jacobs, Chris Shank and Joe Getty. While committee members were stymied by complex mental health issues, they did vote to prohibit gun ownership from people who have been involuntarily committed to a mental hospital. They also reduced licensing fees and attacked "straw purchases" by enabling the Maryland State Police to investigate. At its core, O'Malley's Firearm Safety Act of 2013 would ban military-style assault weapons and high capacity ammunition ...
CURSE YOU PHONY REPUBLICANS Bob Worsley, Steve Pierce and Rich Crandall ! Forced Injections ? Did you learn NOTHING from the blundering Rick Perry ? By Mary K. ReinhartThe Republic | azcentral.comSat Feb 23, 2013 10:14 PM Three GOP senators joined with Democrats last week to defeat a Republican-backed bill in a show of political force that demonstrates the upper chamber’s shifting dynamics and fragile GOP control. The bill — which would allow licensing of foster families who don’t immunize their own children — passed easily when the Senate reconsidered it the next day, with all three maverick senators supporting it. But the trio had sent a clear message: Teaming with the Senate’s 13 Democrats, Republican Sens. Rich Crandall and Bob Worsley of Mesa and Prescott’s Steve Pierce can block any bill they choose. The implications of their political leverage on larger issues, such as the budget and Gov. Jan Brewer’s proposal to expand Medicaid, are significant. While they aren’t exactly moderates ...
WASHINGTON -- Senate Republicans successfully foiled attempts to confirm Chuck Hagel for the post of defense secretary on Thursday, by denying him the 60 votes needed for the nomination to proceed. Democrats ultimately came up short of the 60 votes needed to invoke cloture and end the Republicans' filibuster, with a final vote count of 58 to 40. Republican Sens. Mike Johanns (Neb.), Susan Collins (Maine), Thad Cochran (Miss.) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) voted with Democrats in their failed effort to end debate. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) voted present. The nomination is hardly dead. In fact, it looks increasingly likely that Democrats will be able to muster the needed votes to confirm Hagel's nomination after a 10-day recess. But the failure to end the GOP filibuster is still is a setback for the administration, which wanted a fast confirmation process, and Senate Democratic leadership, whose decision to punt on filibuster reform at the beginning of this congressional session was met with criticism. Earlie ...
About Time to Face The Music. Legislators seem more willing to back measures to expand mental healthcare than get behind new gun laws that restrict ownership of high-capacity magazines or some semi-automatic weapons. Republican Sens. Roy Blunt of Missouri, Marco Rubio of Florida, and Susan Collins of Maine introduced a mental healthcare expansion program alongside Democratic Sens. Jack Reed of Rhode Island, Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, Patrick Leahy of Vermont, and Barbara Boxer of California. "Ensuring that those suffering from mental illness have access to the healthcare and support they need is important for many reasons," Leahy said. "One reason is to help prevent debilitating mental and behavioral health problems, suicide, and violent acts like we saw at an elementary school in Connecticut."
“In more serious news, the FBI investigating New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez for allegedly soliciting Dominican prostitutes,” Leno said. “So, once again, foreign workers doing the jobs Americans don’t want to do, right? Well, the FBI says Menendez agreed to pay the prostitutes $500 but then only gave them $100. So, he had sex like a Democrat but is a fiscal conservative like Republicans. That’s what we need in Washington. We need more men like that. Yeah — a little different when they’re spending their own money, huh?” CNBC’s Larry Kudlow has also covered the story on his program. A review of transcripts of the major networks showed extensive coverage of scandals involving former Republican Sens. John Ensign and Larry Craig, former Republican South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford and current Republican Louisiana Sen. David Vitter from ABC, CBS and NBC’s national news broadcasts.

Are you getting as tired of this as I am?Female Democratic reps suggest racism, sexism behind criticism of Rice on Libya Nov 16, 2012 2:12 PM EST (page 1 of 3) View Entire Story A dozen female members of the House staunchly defended U.N. ambassador Susan Rice against Republican criticism over her remarks on the deadly Sept. 11 Libya attack, suggesting the GOP lawmakers' comments were racist and sexist. "It is a shame that anytime something goes wrong, they pick on women and minorities," Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, the next chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, told reporters Friday at a Capitol Hill news conference. Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham earlier this week called Rice untrustworthy and unqualified to be the nation's top diplomat if President Barack Obama chooses her to succeed Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. The two vowed to block any Senate confirmation if she is nominated. The House women, a majority of them Africa-American, lashed out at McCain and Graham and ...

Roy Blunt (Mo.), Tom Coburn (Okla.), Jim DeMint (S.C.), James Inhofe (Okla.), Ron Johnson (Wis.), Mike Lee (Utah), Paul and Sessions voted no. S. 3457 would establish a Veterans Job Corps for five years. The bill would set up a pilot program that would allow veterans to search for jobs on a new website, and create “one-stop job centers” where they could receive help using the site, if needed. The bill would also establish a Transition Assistance Program for veterans and their spouses in a few states with the highest levels of unemployed vets.
Iraq to Release Accused Killer of U.S. Troops Iraqi authorities have dropped charges against a high-profile Shiite terrorist accused of murdering American troops and are set to release him, as a Republican critic charges the Obama administration with botching the case. Ali Musa Daqduq, a Lebanese national and one of the most senior Hezbollah figures ever to be in U.S. custody, was allegedly a key link between Hezbollah, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, and violent Shiite groups held responsible by the United States for deadly attacks on American troops. Daqduq is suspected in the 2007 killings of five American soldiers in Karbala by assailants wearing American-style fatigues. He was in U.S. hands until late last year when he was handed over the Iraqi authorities, CNS News reported. At the time Republican Sens. John McCain, Mitch McConnell, and Lindsey Graham and independent Sen. Joe Lieberman said they were “deeply concerned that Daqduq will never have to answer for his involvement in killing U.S. ci ...
