Fact Check: Paul Ryan Twisted Truth
to Sell Budget Deal to House

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 12/15/2013 9:05:25 AM

House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) misled his colleagues in the House of Representatives about several major areas of the budget deal he cut with Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), Breitbart News has learned. Misrepresentations include serious budget details ranging from how much deficit reduction is actually in the plan to how spending in this plan compares to spending if the current law, the Budget Control Act (BCA), remains the law of the land. The budget deal passed the House 332-94 on Thursday evening, with 169 Republicans voting for it and 62 Republicans voting against

The headline says all that needs to be said. If the Republican Establishment is now flat out lying to its own members to get what it wants, do you really think they are concerned whether they tell you the truth or not?

Its time to honestly ask yourself exactly why are you a Republican? Is lying to get what one wants now an enviable trait and something you are proud to support?

Well? Is it?

Got Tea?

I´m with you, OP.

FTA: .."increases in revenue to the federal government via fee increases and other measures are somehow a spending cut.."

Paul Ryan will make a wonderful Speaker!

The thing that´s always bugged me about Paul Ryan is his passion for government. We need representatives who have a strong antipathy against government.

FTA:“The bipartisan budget agreement includes specific, concrete spending cuts, which come to a total of $85 billion in savings,” Ryan’s committee wrote in the first point of that document.

That claim is false.

The assignment for all those who support the Republican Establishment Surrender Monkey´s: Compare and contrast the differences between the two major American political parties.

Republicans stealing the thunder from the Demonrats by using the Big Lie technique. Tell it often enough and they think it becomes the truth.

Wait a minute. Paul Ryan wouldn´t put himself in such a position. He knows that such a plan would surface. Do you actually think he is that big of a fool?

With all the garbage that is printed, said, repeated, assumed, whispered, written about anyone, don´t jump out there and join the chorus of negative conclusions.

It sounds like the Dems provided the text of the agreement and the GOP were so eager to compromise they didn´t have time for reading. Thus they didn´t learn about the change in rules for the Senate that would make taxing and spending easier or discover that only the military would have their pensions cut after they had already served. I hope this means conservatives will be even less inclined to trust Ryan and Boehner.

Okay, this article has made some hefty accusations. Is it the American way to just buy them without at least investigating further and hearing what the accused has to say? I know that´s how lefties operate -- hence, the oft-repeated "facts" about John Lewis and other congressmen being spit upon by Tea Party activists after voting for Obamacare (contrary to evidence of actual bystanders). We should know better -- and act better.

Diminishing the worth of already vested military pensions which will only hurt combat veterans and especially the little guys who have put in over 20 years military service, while at the same time supporting a big amnesty for up to 20 million illegal aliens thus granting them eligibility to access social welfare benefits and services is not going to do those Republicans any favors on election day.

The GOP Senate primary in Nebraska will be a 2014 battlefield in the hot war between the Republican establishment and the Tea Party insurgents. But at first glance, it´s hard to see a casus belli. State Treasurer Shane Osborn is a conservative Republican who rails against Washington insiders and criticizes the Republican leadership for the recent budget deal, but whose pedigree shows strong ties to the Republican establishment.

America is a class-based society. But based on politics, not economics. An elite political class runs the state to their benefit. The rest of us pay the bill. The differences between the assumptions and values of people within and without Washington’s 68 square miles of fantasy long have been on ostentatious public display. For example, for years Congress routinely exempted itself from rules imposed on everyone else. The Republican-controlled Congress in 1994 theoretically stopped that. However, legislative privilege never really ended. The Democrats’ health care “reform” became the latest example of elite privilege. Never mind the endless rules exemptions and multiple deadline

Gohmert argued that conservatives need a ground game and an organized strategy to stop House Speaker John Boehner, Karl Rove, and the Chamber of Commerce from destroying the Tea Party movement.

It is clear that the House GOP leadership is preparing to take action on the immigration issue this year. According to reports, the “principles” of immigration reform will be introduced next week and it will include a “pathway” to citizenship for the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country. The bill will reportedly also mandate improved border security, provide additional visas for foreign workers and require those immigrants seeking legalization to learn English and pay certain fees. The net effect of this legislation will be to provide “amnesty” for millions of immigrants who ignored our laws to settle in this

This story begins with the first bailout the Tea Party ever stopped. In May 2010, I helped the Illinois Tea Party organize a demonstration on LaSalle Street in downtown Chicago outside the offices of Shorebank, which was about to be bailed out by the federal government and Wall Street´s biggest banks. The bank was meant to have been closed down already by the FDIC, given its staggering spiral of bad debts, but the day of reckoning had been delayed while its friends in the White House and on Capitol Hill tried to find a way to save it.

GOP Frets About Year-End Fundraising
Thanks to Shutdown
Roll Call, by Emily Cahn    Original Article

A financially damaging mix of a government shutdown and the holiday shopping season has prompted top Republican operatives to temper expectations for fourth-quarter fundraising reports, which are due at the end of the month. The final three months of the year are always a notoriously difficult time for members to raise money, as donor interest and candidate call time decline during the holidays. But the 16-day government shutdown in October further poisoned the financial well, especially for House Republicans, who polls show took most of the blame for the standoff. As year-end fundraising reports trickle in over the next few weeks, GOP

Saying that life is hard is kind of like saying the sun is hot, water is wet, or noting that politicians lie a lot. It´s so obvious that anyone who´s paying attention already knows that it´s true. That being said, life´s even harder when you´re working under false assumptions that have been drilled into you by your teachers, college professors, Hollywood, and politicians in D.C.

The condition is prevalent, stemming from a range of perceived Christie slights towards Romney during the 2012 campaign, which several Romney loyalists ticked off quickly — and with still-evident bitterness.There was the New Jersey governor’s barring Romney from raising money in the Garden State, his unwillingness to answer vice presidential vetting questions and his highly autobiographical convention keynote speech. Most of all, though, Romney allies remain resentful of Christie’s embrace of President Barack Obama as the two worked together on Superstorm Sandy relief in the

The daughter of a teenage mother and a teenage mother herself, Davis managed to beat the odds by getting a college education and Ivy League law degree, then launching a political career that’s brought her national adulation. But since Davis’ Democratic gubernatorial ambitions caught fire last year, “facts have been blurred” in the retelling of her life’s story, as reported Sunday by this newspaper’s senior political writer, Wayne Slater.

And Mr. Obama’s words have anti-drug leaders worried about negative repercussions among youth.Mr. Obama claimed to The New Yorker magazine that marijuana is no worse than cigarettes or alcohol and he promoted state efforts by Colorado and Washington to legalize marijuana, which remains illegal under federal law.The National Drug Control Policy’s official stance, posted on the whitehouse.gov website, says the opposite of Mr. Obama on all counts.

"It´s not a good time for me right now” Davis said at the time, explaining her decision, according to Jeffry Davis. Wendy Davis´s first daughter Amber, born during her first marriage to Frank Underwood, was 23 at the time – an adult. Her daughter with Jeffry, Dru, was 17.

By now you’re aware of the Dallas Morning News story that debunks Texas Democrat Wendy Davis’ own origins story. Briefly, she divorced her first husband when she was 21, not 19. She makes much of having lived in a mobile home, but the fact is that she only lived there a few months before walking away from the mortgage. Rather than working her way through college as she claims, she married wealthy attorney Jeff Davis, who paid for her education at expensive Texas Christian University and more expensive Harvard.
