GOP´s Camp: Obama´s ´spending problem
is getting worse, not better´

Hello, I am Congressman Dave Camp from the Fourth District of Michigan and Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. Let me be candid. I understand the frustration so many Americans have with Washington right now. And you´re right - this government we have spends too much and wastes too much. It´s time for us to stand up and say ´enough is enough´ to those who would tax and spend even more.

The problem is no longer liberal spending. The problem now is too many voters have accepted the premise "tax them and spend on me". Even liberals won´t be able to quench majority voters´ thirst.

I ask again ~ does Zippy have his own stash for all these payouts or where is the House who is supposed to be in charge of funding.

Obama is addicted to spending, and someone has to turn off his "fix".
democrats are very willing to enable his bad habit because they use the money to buy votes.

And he doesn´t even have to buy any more votes. Must be a love-deprivation thing.

Seems the fix is to just talk slowly and plainly to King obama. Then he will change his ways.

Unless the obvious is actually true: He wants to totally bankrupt this country because he hates us. Shezaam, it´s that simple.

This trip is nothing more than a middle finger to those of us who are actually paying the costs of such luxury--which almost rivals the tastes of Arab royalty.

For starters put Obozo and Big Moo on a budget and stop these multi-multi million dollar vacations every month or two.

They are both arrogant, racist grifters who have no self control if they think they can put something over on whitey.

I don´t disagree with your words, Rep. Camp, but I would point out that Republicans spent like democrats during the Bush years when you had the WH, the Senate and the House.

I´m not calling you a liar, yet, but don´t try to tell me that Republicans don´t also LOVE having all that money to pass around to their buds and buy votes, too. They do, and you know it, so no more articles without telling the whole story, please.

Finally, Rep. Camp, lots of us believe that the only way to stop you guys is to take drastic action. I hope you ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING THIS TIME and that drastic action doesn´t become our only option.

Maybe the repubs should stop agreeing to let zppy spendi all of this money if they think it is a problem. But they don´t, they just put up a tough guy front for a few cycles and then cave.

Wait till they are irrelevant come 2014 and can´t get reelected when many of us vote for whomever is not the repub or the dem.

There is an old story about, I believe, FDR.

At a State dinner, he asked the steward for another dinner roll. The steward replied, “One roll per diner, sir.” FDR puffed up and announced, “I’m the president.” The steward smiled and said, “Yes Sir, and I’m the guy who hands out the rolls.”

Speaker Boehner needs to remember, he hands out the rolls.

Dave, you´re speaking Swahili to uneducated fools.

Your arguments fall on deaf ears.

And I´ll tell you why. As long as I´ve been alive I´ve heard about Congress overspending, the nation is in dire economic straits and everything is a fiscal mess.

Yet here we are today with smartphones, tablets, cars that are better than ever and all sorts of cool stuff.

Well he got most of it right but he missed a huge chunk of it. Washington is spending a whole lot of out money on things they have no business spending it on. Washington is suppose to be a limited form of government. He didn´t mention getting rid of all those departments and programs that have nothing to do with the enumerated powers. Until they do that it will be the same old same old.

The so called "balanced approach"is nothing more than capitulation by the Crier of the House and the RINO capitulators.

I’m Senator Lamar Alexander. Have you ever read something so obviously right that it made you wish you’d written it? That happened to me the other day reading Newt Gingrich’s book ‘Breakout.’ Newt was quoting technology expert Tim O’Reilly, who was talking about the way the government should operate in the internet age. O’Reilly was saying this: “The best way for government to operate is to figure out what kinds of things are enablers of society and then make investments in those things. The same way that Apple figured out, ‘If we turn the iPhone into a platform, outside developers will bring hundreds of thousands of applications to the

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Tensions continued to mount over Ukraine Tuesday as that nation´s military engaged rebel insurgents in the east and Russian leaders refused to recognize the Kiev leadership as legitimate, blaming it for the growing instability. An estimated 50,000 Russian troops remain massed on Ukraine´s borders as uniformed intimidation. In the adjacent Black Sea, a Russian military jet buzzed American naval ships, the high-seas equivalent of a drive-by middle finger.

Inside the Bundy Ranch standoff:

It was a tense standoff in rural Nevada with armed protesters closing I-15 for a while and facing off against even more heavily-armed federal agents. For now, that volatile Bundy Ranch confrontation has been defused. But it´s not over by any means. And we may well experience others that do not pause in non-violence. These are profound disputes illustrative of abiding suspicions among average Americans and their government headed by a man who promised to bring people together but didn´t. And it comes in an uncertain economic time when so many have given up big dreams just to keep what

Hate to break the news to you, but our old pal Archie Andrews is doomed. After 73 years of not looking a day over 17, the long-running all-American symbol of wholesomeness and teen goodness is set to die in July, according to Archie Comics. He´ll go out good, saving someone. Which is swell. But is this really necessary in a soiled age of cynicism, non-heroes and non-role models, lying leaders and downright criminals? It's already hard enough being a parent with all the unwholesome temptations at hand. Must we inevitably give up every enduring symbol of hope and good and fun for a one-month publicity splash?

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I
