(Reuters) - U.S. Senate Republicans blocked legislation on Thursday that would have expanded federal healthcare and education programs for veterans, saying the $24 billion bill would bust the budget. Even though the legislation cleared a procedural vote on Tuesday by a 99-0 vote, the measure quickly got bogged down in partisan fighting. Supporters said the measure would have brought the most significant changes in decades to U.S. veterans' programs. For example, it called for 27 new medical facilities to help a healthcare system that is strained by veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. 1. 2014 - Led by Mitch Mcconnell, Republicans filibuster a bill that would have boosted funding for the VA by $21 billion, expanded benefits, and repealed cuts pushed through under the Ryan budget deal. 2013 - Paul Ryan's budget CUTS $6-billion from Veteran Benefits. 2012 - Republicans block seven other bills that would have helped Veterans and the VA: H.R. 466, H.R. 1168, H.R. 1171, H.R. 1172, H.R. 1293, H.R. 1803, an ...
Republican “Leaders” Propose Colossal Capitulation Dear Conservative: Do they have no shame? We'll soon find out... Much to the delight of Obama-Reid-Pelosi, the GOP Establishment appears ready to impale itself upon its own dull and rusty sword. According to the Associated Press, Senate Republicans led by liberal Sen. Susan Collins have offered the following “deal” to Obama: Increase the debt limit until the end of January Reopen the government Repeal the tax on medical device manufacturers Strengthen income verification for individuals eligible for Obamacare subsidies End the “sequestration cuts”, in whole or part Speaker John Boehner and the House Republicans have offered Obama a similar deal, which increases the debt ceiling and reopens Obama’s bloated federal government. Boehner also proposes to exchange “sequestration cuts” for reductions in Medicare and Medicaid, and potentially higher fees on TRICARE health coverage for military personnel. According to Breitbart News, “In exchan ...
Other than Ryan's regressive budget, the other economic news out of Washington this week will be the President's intensifying efforts to strike a "grand bargain" with Republicans over the deficit. Tuesday he goes to Capitol Hill to meet with Senate Democrats; Wednesday, with House Republicans; Thursday, Senate Republicans and House Democrats. Here's the problem: (1) These moves will heighten public expectations of such a deal, thereby increasing the pressure on him to strike one. (2) Any such deal will be awful because House Tea Party Republicans, already crowing about the sequester and about to parade Paul Ryan's draconian budget, won't agree to anything remotely reasonable. (3) The President has already expressed a willingness to cut Social Security (the "chained-CPI" he's floated amounts to a real cut in future benefits) and to means-test Medicare (whose political popularity today rests on public belief it's not a program for the less fortunate but for everyone). (4) He got such terrible advice on the ...
List of 27 Senate Republicans* who voted for sequestration - or automatic budget cuts to defense and non-defense discretionary spending - as part of the Budget Control Act of 2011:
For four years, the right-wing calculus has been that prolonging and deepening the suffering of American families was a small price to pay - if it would put them back in power. This approach became the cornerstone of Republican strategy the day of the inauguration - when GOP leaders like Paul Ryan first sat down to plot against the new president. It was true in 2009, when Mitch Mcconnell openly admitted that the top GOP priority was defeating Obama. It was true just a few weeks ago, when Senate Republicans blocked the Veterans Jobs Act. They believe that by increasing America's economic pain, they can increase their own political gain. Their theory is this: if enough dead bodies pile up on the beach, Americans will fire the lifeguard - and Republicans can get the lifeguard's job. ~Van Jones~
Hours after Obama’s inauguration, a despicable assemblage of scoundrels (i.e., Paul Ryan, Mitch Mcconnell, John Boehner, Karl Rove, Newt Gingrich, Eric Cantor, John Mccain, John Kasich, Tom Corbett, Nikki Haley, Scott Walker, Chuck Grassley, Richard Shelby, Grover Norquist, Marsha Blackburn, Jim DeMint, *** Cheney, John Cornyn, Jim Inhofe, Tom Coburn, Jeff Sessions, and Jon Kyle) met for dinner to set in motion a Nixonian concocted conspiracy plot aimed at destroying, dehumanizing, sabotaging, maligning, and delegitimizing President Obama. For House and Senate Republicans, their marching orders were simple: Regardless of any hardship or suffering forced upon Americans, if Obama is for it, we’re against it, even if we were once for it. So when you hear Romney and Ryan say they want Obama to succeed, there’re lying, and once tainted with the stench of a lair, no amount of political hush money can restore one’s reputation (just ask Newt). From day one of the Obama Administration, Republicans have fi ...
Romney and Ryan Turn the Tables on Obama Michael Barone Aug 20, 2012 Sign-Up Mitt Romney's selection of Paul Ryan was supposed to be a problem for the Republicans. So said a chorus of chortling Democrats. So said a gaggle of anonymous seasoned Republican operatives. All of which was echoed gleefully by mainstream media. The problem, these purveyors of the conventional wisdom all said, was Medicare -- to be more specific, the future changes in Medicare set out in the budget resolutions Ryan fashioned as House Budget Committee chairman and persuaded almost all House and Senate Republicans to vote for. But while Democrats licked their chops at the prospect of scaring old ladies that they'd be sent downhill in wheelchairs, the Medicare issue seems to be working in the other direction. Romney and Ryan have gone on the offense, noting that while their plan calls for no changes for current Medicare recipients and those over 55, Obamacare, saved from demolition by Chief Justice John Roberts, cuts $716 billion fro ...
If you believe in equal pay for women and like Paul Ryan then you should know these important facts: Fact : Paul Ryan opposed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to prevent wage discrimination against women. He opposed the Paycheck Fairness Act to advance fair pay for women. He opposed efforts to protect women against discrimination. Fact : Paul Ryan opposed efforts to provide women fair compensation when discrimination was proven. He opposed requiring those who pay women less to give a business justification for this. Mitt Romney agrees with Ryan. So do most House and Senate Republicans, who drive the Senate to dysfunction by abusing the chamber's rules, again, to oppose fair pay for women. voted against the Lilly Ledbetter
