Senate Minority

The Senate Majority and Minority Leaders are two United States Senators who are elected by the party conferences that hold the majority and the minority respectively. These leaders serve as the chief Senate spokespeople for their parties and manage and schedule the legislative and executive business of the Senate. By rule, the Presiding Officer gives the Majority Leader priority in obtaining recognition to speak on the floor of the Senate.

Senator Akume made the disclosure at the flag off of the APC statewide campaigns at the RCM Primary School, Zaki-Biam, Ukum local government area yesterday. The former governor stated that having worked closely with the erstwhile Minister of State, Industry, Trade, and Investment, he and other leaders had noticed his passions and responses to the challenges of the people in his little way and concluded that if given the opportunity he could do more. He said although it was the concensus of the majority of the people that the next governor of the state should come from the Minda geopolitical axis he subscribed to the position of the late J S Tarka that both the Tor Tiv ...

. Fri Aug 08, 2014 at 06:02 AM PDT. Awkward: Mitch McConnell's wife is Major (player) in the 'war on coal' by Barbara Morrill . U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) speaks to the media on Capitol Hill in Washington June 18, 2013. REUTERS/Yuri Gripas "Hey, she's only on two anti-coal boards!" In the course of Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell's re-election campaign, he has relied on two lines of attack: Trying to convince voters that Alison Lundergan Grimes is a black man from Kenya and accusing her of being a foot soldier in the so-called "war on coal." But as it turns out: McConnell’s wife, former Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, sits on the board of directors of Bloomberg Philanthropies, which has plunged $50 million into the Sierra Club’s “Beyond Coal” initiative, an advocacy effort with the expressed goal of killing the coal industry. In 2011, Bloomberg Philanthropies teamed up with the Sierra Club to target coal plants for closure in an effort to "end our nation’s reliance on dirty ...

Don't ever let it be said that Kentucky Senator Rand Paul isn't willing to play the game, because here he is obediently parroting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's absurd claim that Kynect, Kentucky's new health insurance marketplace, has nothing to do with repealing Obamacare: Saying he favors a full repeal of "Obamacare" but citing a "technical question," U.S. Sen. Rand Paul on Friday gave cover to U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell a week after McConnell said Kynect and the federal law are not connected. Paul, talking to reporters after speaking at an event in Frankfort, said he wasn't sure whether Kynect, Kentucky's implementation of President Barack Obama's health care law, should be dismantled, saying there were far bigger questions that make a simple answer impossible.

Dear Friend, Today, the Senate voted on a bill that would overturn the disastrous Hobby Lobby ruling. The Protect Women’s Health from Corporate Interference Act (also known as the “Not My Boss’ Business Act”) would make it clear that for-profit corporations cannot deny their employees medical coverage they are guaranteed by law. In a cowardly move, all but three Senate Republicans blocked the bill (Sens. Collins, Kirk, and Murkowski voted to protect women). Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell knew that if the Republican minority allowed an up-or-down vote, they would lose. Instead of standing up for women’s health, they made a sadly predictable choice and stopped the bill from coming to the floor at all. A woman’s contraceptive choices should never be any “boss’s business.” We can’t let backwards-thinking ideologues in the Senate get away with such a brazen assault on basic women’s health care. Harry Reid and other leaders are still determined to find a way to fix the Supreme Cour ...

Lottery officials get big raises Legislators cite slash in HOPE scholarship. 6 executives saw pay boosts last year of more than $10,000. By Kristina Torres ktorres and James Salzer jsalzer Georgia Lottery executives received big raises again last year, unlike the state’s employees and teachers who saw the same old stagnant pay. Former lottery President Margaret DeFrancisco received $142,475 for “unused leave” when she retired in mid-November 2012, according to lottery records requested by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The money came on top of the $141,753 in salary she earned for the 4 ½ months she worked that fiscal year before she retired. Among other findings: › In 2012, the first year state law curtailed widespread bonuses for lottery employees, the 10 highest-paid lottery employees below DeFrancisco received raises in their base pay. › The same th ...
MA Olympic update. Though I have many questions and comments I do hope the committee looked at the WHOLE State not just Boston for venue space and places for infrastructure improvements. WITHOUT EXAMINING COSTS, PANEL FINDS BOSTON OLYMPICS “FEASIBLE” By Matt Murphy STATE HOUSE NEWS SERVICE STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, FEB. 27, 2014…. Hosting the 2024 summer Olympic Games in Boston would be “feasible” and potentially dovetail well with the state’s long-term infrastructure and housing goals, but would also require a significant investment of public and private capital, a special commission found. The 11-member panel, set up by the Legislature and Gov. Deval Patrick to examine the possibility of becoming a host city to the Olympics, wrapped up its work on Thursday after about two-and-a-half months spent examining the infrastructure, venue capacity, security requirements and marketing resources available for a possible host city bid. The commission voted 8-0 to accept the final report with an amendment in ...

Days after Ken Buck dropped out and endorsed Congressman Cory Gardner in the race against Mark Udall, the self-proclaimed 'Guardian of Gridlock' was celebrating. Mitch McConnell gives Rep. Gardner the thumbs upAccording to POLITICO, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, “flashed a big grin with a thumbs up and said, ‘Cory Gardner.’” This morning Congressman Gardner will officially announce his campaign for U.S. Senate to the people of Colorado — days after he apparently told McConnell. Clearly a Senator Gardner would serve Mitch McConnell — and not the people of Colorado. Please give $5 right now to help us fight back against Congressman Gardner’s campaign launch momentum. McConnell thinks Congressman Gardner’s decision to run against Mark will make him Majority Leader McConnell next year. With Mitch McConnell’s enthusiastic support, it’s clear that the Republican establishment in Washington thinks they’ve got a good shot at taking over the Senate with Congressman Gardner’s surpr ...

There will be indictments very soon in the graft and plunder complaint filed against dozens of individuals – including three senators – in connection with the multibillion-peso pork barrel scam, President Aquino said here late Thursday. “I think you know our ombudsman is close to filing charges and we have gathered evidence against the wrongdoers,” Aquino said in Filipino before a gathering of some 500 members of the Filipino community here. If the ombudsman investigators find enough evidence against the respondents, charges would be filed with the Sandiganbayan anti-graft court. He did not name the respondents, who include Senate Minority Leader Juan Ponce Enrile, Senators Jinggoy Estrada and Ramon Revilla Jr. and more than 30 others. Aquino gave the assurance after an impassioned speech delivered by a Filipino community leader urging the President to make sure those involved in the embezzling of taxpayers’ money are punished. In response, Aquino said he is determined to curb bureaucratic corru ...
(Byron York via The Washington Examiner) -- How many Democrats made the promise? There's no comprehensive list of all of them, but Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's office has compiled a list of 27 Democratic senators who pledged that Americans could keep their coverage under Obamacare. The list includes the entire Democratic leadership in the Senate as well as Democrats facing tough re-election races in 2014, like Mary Landrieu, Mark Begich, and Kay Hagan. Here is that list, compiled by McConnell's office: SEN. Harry Reid (D-Nev.): “In fact, one of our core principles is that if you like the health care you have, you can keep it.” (Sen. Reid, Congressional Record, S.8642, 8/3/09) SEN. RICHARD DURBIN: “We believe — and we stand by this — if you like your current health insurance plan, you will be able to keep it, plain and simple, straightforward.” (Sen.

Veteran GOP senator Thad Cochran of Mississippi, who is battling a conservative primary challenger, has a new political headache: a scathing appraisal and conservative rating from the American Conservative Union, one of the right's most influential assessors of Republicans. In its new annual scorecard, which was shared with The Washington Post on Wednesday, the ACU shows Cochran, at 63 percent, with one of the group's worst ratings during the Obama presidency. That's more than 25 points lower than the ratings for many of Cochran's GOP colleagues during the same five-year period, including others facing primary trouble, such as Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), who has an 89 percent rating, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), who has a 94 percent rating

Reprogramming Mar Roxas By Francisco S. Tatad | Feb. 12, 2014 at 12:01am Despite the outbreak of large state issues like China and the peace agreement with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, one of the things that truly occupy President B. S. Aquino III’s mind these days, highly reliable Malacañang sources tell us, is a deeply personal one---what to do with his Secretary of Interior and Local Government Manuel A. Roxas II. It’s an incredible story, but it deserves to be told. At the Zamboanga siege last September and at the Yolanda/Haiyan disaster last November, B. S. III gave Roxas every opportunity to shine as his potential anointed in the 2016 presidential race. He failed to rise to the challenge. By an extreme turn of bad luck, he turned himself from an heir apparent into its exact opposite. He all but wrote off himself.

Reps. Regina Birdsell and Laurie Sanborn: It's a job gap, not a wage gap (The New Hampshire Union Leader) As women and as human resources professionals, we believe the national and state-wide Democrat agenda surrounding Paycheck Equity is unnecessary and misleading. It is against the law to pay women differently than men based on their gender. This law has been in effect for more than 50 years, under the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Equal Pay Act of 1963, and also under New Hampshire's own equal pay legislation going back to 1947. We would know personally, because we have more than 40 years of combined experience overseeing human resources, recruitment and compensation activities in New Hampshire companies. We take these laws very seriously and have not seen wage discrimination in our professional careers. Employers know that not only is it against the law, but it also is bad policy when you are trying to attract and retain the very best employees for an organization. We have learned there hav ...
Foundry Exclusive: 8 Election Experts Slam IRS for Interfering with Campaign Finance Ken McIntyre February 27, 2014 at 4:54 pm (3) REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque Eight former members of the Federal Election Commission today accused the Internal Revenue Service of attempting to “interfere” with campaign finance regulations enacted by Congress, The Foundry has learned. The former FEC commissioners signed a letter filed this afternoon as a public comment on the IRS’s proposed new rules on so-called “candidate-related political activity” by nonprofit advocacy organizations qualified as tax-exempt under federal law. Midnight is the deadline for public comment on the proposed rules, which critics say the IRS developed secretly and announced at Thanksgiving to silence some free speech – seven months after the IRS targeting scandal broke. Signing the letter to the IRS were Lee Ann Elliott, Thomas J. Josefiak, David M. Mason, Don McGahn, Bradley A. Smith, Michael E. Toner, Hans A. von Sp ...

A MUST READ ARTICLE: First Things First by Francisco Tatad The ‘Real Edsa Question’ By Francisco S. Tatad | Feb. 28, 2014 at 12:01am 28 My last piece on the 1986 EDSA “revolt” (“EDSA and its Discontents”) drewsome rather caustic comments from some readers. One wondered whether it was just for lack of space that I failed to tackle what she said was “the real EDSA question,” or whether I deliberately avoided it because I never really cared at all. The real question, she says, is this: Did Marcos fall and Cory Aquino take over, solely because of “people power” or because of Washington? Is it conceivable for a Filipino president to fall without US participation or consent? Did Marcos fall because he was “corrupt” or did he become “corrupt” because he fell? What was the great offense which the US found unforgivable? These are pressing, monumental questions. One has to write a book, not a just column, to adequately answer them. In this limited space, one can only hazard th ...

House GOP leaders have put some distance between themselves and the Ways and Means Committee chairman, who is releasing his proposal to rewrite the tax code after three years of hearings and conversations. Camp’s plan would consolidate income tax rates into two rates, with the top marginal rate at 25 percent, down from 39.6 percent, for most earners. He would offset the cost by eliminating deductions and loopholes, and by imposing surtaxes on big banks and the wealthiest taxpayers. While most House Republicans, including Boehner, have long voiced support for simplifying the tax code, some believe it is foolhardy to tackle the issue at a time ahead of an election and at a time when it stands no chance of becoming law. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday said there was little hope for enacting tax reform in 2014.
Subject: CRUZ'S GLEEFUL SABOTAGE OF THE GOP From the 02/28/2014 issue of The Week magazine: With friends like Sen. Ted Cruz, said Dana Milbank (The Washington Post), other Republicans do not need enemies. The Tea Party darling from Texas stabbed fellow Republicans in the back last week by staging a reckless filibuster of a bill that raised the nation’s debt limit. The filibuster was a pure “ego trip”—a delivery of red meat to the party’s rabid, talk-radio base—and had it succeeded, the federal government would have defaulted on its debts, causing the stock market to panic and the “economy to swoon.” With a satisfied grin on his face, Cruz watched as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, and 10 other Republicans were forced to cast votes to break the filibuster—and this increase the debt limit. Those responsible votes may cause Republicans to lose their Senate seats to Tea Party challengers in primaries. And if Tea Party extremists win those primaries, they’ ...

Lagos councillors seek review of financial guidelines Local government councillors in Lagos State have criticised the provisions in the ‘Guidelines on Local Government Administration that confer excess powers on chairmen. The councillors also called for a review of the Administrative Financial Guidelines that make chairmen sole approving authority. They spoke at the second day of a workshop organised for officials of local governments by the Lagos State Gubernatorial Advisory Committee (GAC). The two-day workshop ended yesterday. A councillor from Mushin Local Government, Mr Atobatele, alleged that the chairman of the council decides on projects to be executed without the inputs of the councillors. Atobatele, who is a second term councillor said he represents the largest ward in the local government and lamented that none of the projects identified in his ward were executed. Similarly, Mr Adekola Azeez of Kosofe Local Government observed that chairmen are lording things over the councillors. They have r ...

BIG RISKS, BIG REWARDS AS BUBBA HITS THE TRAIL America’s favorite Democrat will test his clout on the campaign trail today, and how it goes will have a lot to say about the results of this year’s elections and the arc of the party heading into 2016. In a textbook Bill Clinton play, the former president rolls into Kentucky to campaign for Alison Lundergan Grimes, the daughter of one of his former campaign financiers. Grimes is hoping to knock off Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell this fall in one of only two potential Senate bright spots for a party facing a very dark midterm forecast. It’s a perfectly Clintonian moment: high stakes, big egos, sex scandals, retail politics, old cronies, his wife’s ambitions and the long-simmering tensions with President Obama. With control of the Senate at stake and his wife no doubt eager to show the family’s continuing clout in states that disdain Obama, Clinton’s arrival is welcome news. But it comes at a cost.

On this day in 1964, Senate Minority Leader Dirksen stated his concern at the scope of Title VII, the equal employment opportunity title. He said that President Kennedy had promised him in 1963 there would be no fair employment practice title in any bill submitted by the administration, and Kennedy had kept his promise. But H.R. 7152, as amended by the House, did contain such a provision. After stating that 28 states already had some version of an anti-discriminatory body, Dirksen feared for conflicting actions by federal and state commissions. He criticized as ill-defined the language in the section forbidding the federal commission from bringing action where a state or local fair employment practices agency had “effective power” to halt discriminatory practices.

Akume weeps over herdsmen’s killings in Benue Senate Minority Leader George Akume wept yesterday when he visited internally displaced persons arising from suspected fulani herdsmen attacks on Benue farmers. The Senate Minority Leader was at St. Francis Catholic Church Daudu, to sympathise with victims of the attacks, who are taking refuge under the care of a priest, Rev. Solomon Ukeyima. Over 10,000 people from five settlements- Waku, Kaseyo, Umenger, Tomotaa and Akaahemen- in Guma Local Government are currently taking refuge in Daudu. Akume was accompanied by the member representing Makurdi North, in the House of Assembly, Avine Agbom, All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftains Justice Utsaha, Nanevwua Uhondo, Targema Takuma, Philip Anza and Beck Orpin. Ukeyima told the vistors that the church was overwhelmed by the number of displaced people. When the priest told Akume that the people had lost everything, the senator broke down in tears.

Local Govt chairmen need better service delivery method, says Mamora Local Government Chairmen should be transparent and accountable to those who elected them into office, former Senate Minority Leader, Senator Olorunnibbe Mamora, has advised.

He urged the local government operators to equip themselves for better service delivery to achieve their set goals. Mamora said being a local government Chairman is an honour and a call to service.

Speaking to KTN during an interview with Jeff Koinange on Wednesday, Wetangula, who is also the Senate Minority Leader and CORD principal, noted that he was ready to die for Raila Odinga and the good course propagated by the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) and that he does not fear death because it comes only once. He said the recent attempt to assassinate him was nothing and will not deter him from pushing the CORD agenda. “I do not live in fear and neither do I fear to live - after all, a man dies once and those who want to kill me will eventually die anyway”, said Wetangula. However, he called on Uhuru/ Ruto’s Government to conclude investigations into the alleged assassination attempt on his life pretty ...

If you couldn't watch or listen to the Republican response to Governor O'Malley's final state of the state address, you can now read through and let us know your thoughts.

Mitch McConnell Once Again Plays Politics With Plant Workers By Jason Cherkis WASHINGTON -- In the first major television ad buy of his 2014 campaign, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) does not tout his ability to cut deals as the Senate Minority Leader or highlight his anti-Obamacare rhetoric. Instead, the McConnell campaign chose a rerun from his last Senate race. The ads, running statewide, tell the story of Paducah, Ky.'s toxic uranium enrichment plant -- as McConnell sees it. The Cold War relic once delivered stable jobs and prosperous growth to the small Western Kentucky town located on the banks of the Ohio River. For decades, the facility also poisoned its workers and nearby waterways. After The Washington Post published an exposé in 1999, McConnell worked to provide the workers with free health care and screenings. The six-figure buy consists of two spots. In both, Robert Pierce, a former plant worker and throat cancer survivor, praises McConnell. "He knocked down walls for us," he says in one ad. "M ...

Honorable Moses Wetangula Is The “King” Luhyaland Has Been Waiting For. “I don’t live in fear, I don’t fear to live.” Those are words by Senate Minority Leader Mr. Moses Wetangula as he appeared on Jeff Koinange Live talk show on Television this week.

Dear patriot, WILL YOU HELP US FIRE John Cornyn, LIKE AND SHARE THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE! NOW! ARE YOU IN? Would you have fed news reporters attack points to use against Ted Cruz? John Cornyn did.

He revealed that startling information less than 24 hours after conservative Breitbart News broke the stunning news “Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn are using their leadership positions to pressure other Republicans to oppose Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in his campaign to defund Obamacare.” Yes, John Cornyn asked reporters “to hammer Cruz” and stop Cruz’s efforts to defund Obamacare. Cornyn tried to sabotage Cruz’s appearance by setting up an ambush. Cornyn would then vote with Democrats to kill Cruz’s filibuster and fully fund Obamacare. In fact, Sena ...
