Senate Democrats keep heat on Grassley as Supreme Court fight intensifies - The Washington Post
ObamaCare is back at the Supreme Court and the only way to save it is to make an unbelievable argument that boils down to this: "House Democrats, Senate Democrats, and the President of the United States were simply incompetent, unable to draft a law to say what they really meant." Share why incompetence won't save ObamaCare:
Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum has a First Amendment lesson for Senate Democrats who want to undo the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby ruling.
BREAKING. Senate Democrats are fast-tracking legislation that would override the Supreme Court's decision in the Hobby Lobby case and compel for-profit employers to cover the full range of contraception. A Senate aide told HuffPost that the bill will go directly to the Senate floor as early as next week, without being considered in committee. Keep up the prayers for this issue.
OK, so now Senate Democrats are drafting a bill to override the Supreme Court decision on Hobby Lobby. So when the SCOTUS rules in your favor as in the Obamacare decision and House Republicans draw up repeal legislation that is wrong but you can bring up legislation to override a SCOTUS decision that is just fine. My God, Harry Reid and his ilk are the worst kind of politicians. I just can't wait to see the look on his face when the GOP takes back the Senate in Nov. Poor Harry will probably try to draw up some emergency legislation to override that. I hope he will resign soon after the way Gingrich did. Or better yet, just die Harry Reid. In the most painful, agonizing way. The world will be a much, much better place without you.
Senate Democrats plan to introduce a bill that they say would override the Supreme Court's recent Hobby Lobby ruling
By T̶e̶d̶ ̶C̶r̶u̶z̶   Jeremy Lett For two centuries there has been bipartisan agreement that American democracy depends on free speech. Alas, more and more, the modern Democratic Party has abandoned that commitment and has instead been trying to regulate the speech of the citizenry. We have seen President Obama publicly rebuke the Supreme Court for protecting free speech in Citizens United v. FEC; the Obama IRS inquire of citizens what books they are reading and what is the content of their prayers; the Federal Communications Commission proposing to put government monitors in newsrooms; and Sen. Harry Reid regularly slandering private citizens on the Senate floor for their political speech. But just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, it does. Senate Democrats have promised a vote this year on a constitutional amendment to expressly repeal the free-speech protections of the First Amendment. You read that correctly. Forty-one Democrats have signed on to co-sponsor New Mexico Sen. Tom Udal ...
Senate Democrats said Wednesday that the Supreme Court has stretched the First Amendment too far when it comes to campaign finances, and vowed to hold a vote to amend the Constitution and undo a number of landmark decisions.
I’d assumed southern Senate Democrats were a vanishing species, particularly vulnerable this November. Not true. According to a new round of polls conducted by The New York Times and Kaiser Family Foundation: (1) Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR) is leading Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) 46 percent to 36 percent; (2) North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC) has a tiny lead over House Speaker Thom Tillis (R-NC), 42 percent to 40 percent; (3) Kentucky Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is barely leading Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes (D), 44 percent to 43 percent; and (4) Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) has a commanding lead over Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and the rest of the field in the Louisiana Senate race. But these are opinion polls. The actual results will depend on turnout. And you can bet Republicans will be doing everything in their power to make it difficult for likely Democrats (i.e. African-Americans, Latinos, women, young people, and the poor) to vote this November. The good news is that, a ...
Rachal Maddow's theory about the Fort Lee Traffic Jam and it's a very good one.No governor had ever failed to reappoint a sitting State Supreme Court justice in 63 years until Chris Christie became Governor and Christie had suddenly done it twice – once for the court’s only African-American jurist, infuriating Democrats, and then again for a justice he actually liked. The governor, enraged, held a press conference to tell reporters, “I was not going to let her loose to the animals.” The “animals,” in this case, were the Democrats in the state Senate.(N.J. Democrats refused to approve any person Christie tried to put on the State Supreme Court to replace the African American he refused to re-appoint-) Christie said that on the afternoon of Aug. 12, 2013. On the morning of Aug. 13, 2013, Christie’s Deputy Chief of staff told the governor’s guy at the Port Authority, “Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.” The leader of the Senate Democrats at the time was a senator ( an older woman ...
What really happened in the Christie fiasco: There is a timeline fom the Daily Kos site, summarizing Maddow's theory of what happened. (I've added some facts to it, as further clarification). This is the theory that makes the most sense to me: Timeline: 1) In May of 2010, Christie removes a qualified State Supreme Court judge for no reason (Justice John Wallace). Wallace also happens to be the only Black sitting justice. This move is widely panned for being an unprecedented and unwarranted political maneuver by Christie, in his attempt to pack the court with his own appointments. 2) Democrats are outraged, and say that they won't let him appoint a replacement. The battle over this issue extends through the summer of 2013. 3) In response to Democrat assurance that they will not stop fighting him about his nominees, Christie withdraws one of his own nominees rather than let her face Senate Democrats, who he calls "animals." 4) The morning after Christie does (3), his Deputy Chief of Staff, Bridgette K ...
Liberals Call It "Beyond Appalling" Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) is now claiming he offered former Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) a free pass in the 2012 election, and the left wing is furious. Brown was asked to back the Democrats on a campaign-finance bill. Schumer told The New Republic, "I went to Brown and said, 'If you give us the 60th vote for the Citizens United rollback, we won't go after you'. I spent a lot of time lobbying him, and met some of his friends and had them lobby him." When Brown said no, Schumer's response was "I wanted to recruit the strongest candidate against him, and I thought that was Elizabeth Warren." Schumer's reference to Citizens United is about the sweeping Supreme Court ruling that helped pave the way for unlimited campaign donations from corporations, unions and wealthy individuals. Senate Democrats effectively fell one vote short of blunting the impact of the Citizens United ruling in 2010, and failed again with rev... See More
A DAY THAT WILL LIVE IN INFAMY Harry Reid pulled the trigger on the “Nuclear Option” — a process whereby 52 Senate Democrats voted to change the Senate rules by brute force. He did this for the ostensible purpose of packing the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals with three anti-gun judges — one of which (Robert Wilkins) has held that the Second Amendment doesn’t protect the right to purchase firearms, just the right to possess them. But make no mistake about it: The Senate now effectively has no rules. This means that, if Supreme Court “swing vote” Anthony Kennedy were to die or resign tomorrow, Obama would shove through another virulently anti-gun nominee. This would mean that Obama’s lasting legacy would be to reverse the Heller and McDonald Supreme Court decisions. And, as far as the Court is concerned, the Second Amendment would be nothing, other than the right of a state to raise a militia. So a vote for the Nuclear Option on Thursday was a vote to begin the process of effectively repealin ...
Thanks, Tea Party congressmen for sending home all those government employees without pay today, while you are still paid. From Forbes: "The main obstacle to keeping the government open has been the insistence of the most conservative House “Tea Party” Republicans that even a six week budget stopgap bill (known as a continuing resolution) include some provision defunding or delaying all or part of the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. ObamaCare), which they claim the vast majority of the public opposes. Obama and Senate Democrats, for their part, are adamant that no policy riders of any sort be attached to a temporary funding resolution and that ObamaCare is settled law–passed by Congress, upheld by the Supreme Court, and reaffirmed by Obama’s 2012 re-election."

Chamber News Feed: NJ Gov. Chris Christie Makes Nominations: NJ Governor, Chris Christie yesterday, nominated a Japanese-American judge and the Board of Public Utilities chief to the State Supreme Court, hoping to finally win over Senate Democrats who landed their strongest punch against the Republican governor by rejecting his last two nominees earlier this year. If confirmed, David Bauman, presiding judge of the state Superior Court’s Monmouth County civil division, would be the first Asian-American on the court and the first immigrant in modern history. BPU President Robert Hanna’s 16-year stint as a federal prosecutor overlapped with Christie’s time as U.S. attorney. "These are two men whose careers are marked by a commitment to public service and dedication to the law that gives both of them unique perspectives and great opportunity to make a major contribution to the New Jersey Supreme Court," Christie said. Bauman, 56, who was born in Japan, thanked Christie as his family looked on from front ...
The same Republicans who passed Senate Bill 5 by just one vote are spending millions to grab more seats in the Ohio Senate. If they succeed they will push through more of their extreme agenda. That means more tax cuts for the wealthy at the expense of schools and local communities. And, while you are reading this email, Senate Republicans are scheming to change voting laws after the election to make it harder for Ohioans to vote. Plus, we expect them to launch even more assaults on women's rights. We cannot let this happen. Please donate $12 or whatever you can to ensure we don't go back in time. Senate Democrats are ready to fight back. We battled all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court to save weekend voting. And we protected the retirements of 1.8 million Ohioans by leading the effort to pass pension reform. We need your help to stand up to these radical Republicans! A contribution of $12 will help us elect Democrats to the Ohio Senate in 2012 who will fight for our Democratic values. Sen. Eric H. Kea ...
A Wolf That Comes as a Wolf by National Director, Dee on Monday Beware the Democrats' Deceptive Practices and Voter Intimidation Prevention Act of 2011 (S. 1994). If you like the tendentious nit-picking of Politifact, you'll love S. 1994 because it will empower a whole new set of self-appointed fact checkers. But, if you are concerned about politically motivated mischief, you'll see it as a wolf in wolf's clothing, like Senator Grassley (R-IA) does. The First Amendment protects some false speech, as the Supreme Court recently held in finding the Stolen Valor Act unconstitutional. It doesn't protect all false speech, though, and Senate Democrats want to subject more false speech to criminal prosecution. S. 1994, "Prevention of Deceptive Practices and Voter Intimidation in Federal Elections," would make it a federal crime to make knowingly false statements about the time or place of an election, the qualifications of voters, or claims of endorsement within 90 days of a federal election. In order to be a cri ...
Who won the Supreme Court decision on Health Care last week? Mitt Romney. Now he finally has red meat to throw to his audience. The law won't be overturned, it will be enforced, and 35 million americans will be required to pay a tax or penalty they did not have to pay before. I cannot reconcile the Chief Justice's "switch" to his long-standing deference to the Legislative Branch, a deference that was absent in Citizens United, a decision that could have gone the other way simply by reasoning that corporations enjoy some constitutional protections, say the protection against having property seized unlawfully, but not all the protections of a "natural born citizen." Corporations cannot vote, for example. Maybe Roberts is a political player. He helps Obama get the masses stirred up against Obama and Democrats generally, the masses vote out Obama and sufficient Senate Democrats to end debate, and the the law is politically nullified. Maybe he swapped a vote for Obamacare in exchange for a vote against Roe v W ...
Speaker Boehner'S BLOG: With millions of Americans out of work and wages stagnant, Speaker John Boehner says the Supreme Court ruling has strengthened the resolve of the American people to fully repeal the president’s Health Care law (and its massive tax hike) which is driving up costs and making it harder for small businesses to hire: MORE THAN 30 JOBS BILLS: The numbers don’t lie: Republicans are focused on jobs. President Obama and Senate Democrats are not. See here and here. Speaker Boehner told CBS News Face the Nation that the president’s Health Care law is hurting our economy and must be “ripped out by its roots.” STEP-BY-STEP: After fully repealing ObamaCare, Boehner says Republicans will take a “common-sense, step-by-step approach” that “will protect Americans’ access to the care they need, from the doctor they choose, at a lower cost.” 10 REASONS TO REPEAL: Small businesses are “afraid to hire new employees” under ObamaCare -- and nine other reasons we need full repeal. T ...
what really irked me was who cast the deciding vkie in the Supreme Court today. It wasn"t Justice Kennedy like I thought, but it wasa Chief Justice Roberts. O.K., since the Supreme Court didn"t do it, we"ll have to do it at the ballot boe this November by voting out the Senate Democrats and Obama, too.
TRENTON — With the bitter political stalemate between Gov. Chris Christie and Senate Democrats over State Supreme Court nominees showing no signs of ebbing, the top rung of New Jersey’s judiciary is down two justices for more than three months — something that hasn’t happened in four decades.
Senate Democrats on Tuesday turned back Republican efforts to postpone debate on a Health Care cost containment bill until after state budget deliberations or until after the U.S. Supreme Court rules in a case challenging the federal Affordable Care Act. Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr predicted.
