Capitol Hill Updates

  • Senator Sam Brownback, Republican from Kansas  --  who most likely will be the next governor of the state  --  since the year 2004 has addressed the issue of the pain which the unborn child feels while she is being aborted.  Fortunately, another great pro-life Senator, Mike Johanns, a Republican from Nebraska has stepped up to sponsor legislation similar to the Brownback bill.    Senator Johanns' state legislature passed a law which took effect last Friday in Nebraska which outlaws abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy because of the pain which an...
  • What is it about judicial tyranny which federal judges appointed by Democrat presidents don't understand.  Time after time these left-wing out-of-control judges overturn the will of the American people as expressed through the votes of their representatives in Washington D.C.   The latest judicial outrage  --  which begs for a constitutional amendment limiting the terms of federal judges  --  came yesterday when Judge Virginia Phillips from (where else?) California, issued a diktat that the American military around the world has to immediately...
  • Note the recent remarks from the Senate Republican Leader, Senator Mitch McConnell from Kentucky and a new document published by the Senate Republican Communications Committee outlining how the threat of Barack Obama's tax hikes affect small businesses across the United States of America.  You are probably aware that the Democrat-controlled Senate and House of Representatives refused to extend President George W. Bush's 2001 and 2003 tax cuts for all Americans before they went home to campaign.  As a result of inaction by Democrats, they will be increasing taxes on almost all...
  • The leader of the Republicans in the Senate, Senator Mitch McConnell from Kentucky, and Iowa Senator Charles Grassley, the probable Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee next year have recently introduced legislation called the Tax Hike Prevention Act. Note the email below from the Office of the Senate Republican Leader's office regarding his bill and even support by a number of Senate Democrats and Independent Joe Lieberman for extension of President George W. Bush's tax cuts (all of them). ---------- The Tax Hike Prevention Act   Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell...
  • The liberal Democrats in the United States Senate led by Senator Harry Reid  --  who is losing to Sharron Angle in the polls in Nevada  --  suffered a 2nd major defeat within the past two days.  Tuesday, the Democrats suffered a huge defeat when their attempt to overturn the 1993 law (interpreted by Bill Clinton as "Don't Ask, Don't Tell") failed.   Today's Democrat defeat was an attempt by the liberals to pass a bill which they called the "Disclose Act"  which  --   if it had passed  --  would have enabled the Democrats to...
  • Today, the Republicans introduced a document pretty similar to what the party introduced in 1994 before that tsunami election putthe Republicans in control of the United States House of Representatives for the first time in about 50 years.  In 1994, the document was called Contract with America.  The Republican governing agenda which was introduced today is called "A Pledge to America."  The House Republican leaders today said that their new governing agenda is built on the priorities of the American people such as getting rid of the socialized medicine scheme passed by the...
  • Roberta Combs, President of the Christian Coalition of America in a press release today criticized Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's plan to end the filibuster by Republicans of a very cynical defense authorization bill.  The Republicans -- and hopefully some moderate Democrat Senators will join them -- are trying to stop the Democrats from overturning the 1993 law which states that open homosexuals are not eligible to serve in the military.  This law was passed by an overwhelmingly Democrat-controlled Congress and signed into law by Bill Clinton. In this defense authorization...
  • The liberals in the Congress have done much over the past years to put roadblocks in to the paths of the United States military leaders as they seek to win victories in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now, left-wingers such as the Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, from Nevada and Senator Carl Levin from Michigan, who is the Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, have announced their intentions of instituting radical social policies upon our American military. Americans need to call their 2 Senators immediately to demand that they reject taxpayer funding of abortions in United States...
  •   Bill O'Reilly on his show last night said that lots of families are getting huge increases in their health care premiums because of the mandates forced on insurance companies and the American people by ObamaCare.  Indeed, his family's insurance premiums he said are increasing by $2,100.  Thankfully, the American people are fighting back, not only at the ballot box, but in the courts.  At least 20 states have lawsuits against ObamaCare.  In fact, today in Florida, Attorney General Bill McCollum and his state's lawsuit has the opening statements in a trial against...
  • The office of the Republican Leader of the United States Senate, Senator Mitch McConnell from Kentucky, passed along a wonderful document from the Senate Republican Conference.  On Wednesday morning, the president actually declared that instead of giving Americans tax cuts, "there are a whole bunch of better ways to spend the money."   As everyone knows, President George W. Bush's tax cuts from 2001 and 2003 are all going to expire on December 31st of this year if the Democrat-controlled Congress does not act to extend them, or better yet, make them permanent. ...
