House Passes Back Pay for Furloughed Employees

On Saturday, the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill to give back pay for furloughed employees. Some 800,000 federal workers have been on furlough once Government Shutdown 2013 began. House Republicans continue their strategy of passing small bills to fund specific programs and agencies while Barack Obama now moves the goal posts and demands both a clean spending bill for all of government as well as an increase to the debt ceiling. Obama refuses to negotiate at all until such bills are passed. While the shutdown drags on it is barely noticed as it has little effect on most Americans. But the clock is winding down on the debt ceiling as the United States Treasury claims it will be out of money by October 17. Meanwhile, Obama continues to lie about his own responsibility for the impasse.

Senate Vows to Kill House Obamacare Delay Bill, Government Shutdown Likely

With a government shutdown looming at midnight tonight, the Senate is likely to reject the latest budget bill from the House which delays the ObamaCare individual mandate by one year, as well as plans to repeal the medical device tax. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid refuses to negotiate with House Republicans. The same is true for America′s first Anti-President, Barack Hussein Obama, who spent the weekend playing golf instead of trying to resolve the political disagreements. Seems that Obama is more willing to cut deals with Russia, Syria and Iran than with the GOP. He has already done an Obamacare delay for the employee mandate for one year, as well as continuing to expand the waivers and carve-outs for many groups and businesses. As the Senate does not begin its session until 2pm today, can lawmakers find a solution before midnight?

Whatever Happened to the Budget?

The last time the Federal government passed a budget was April 29, 2009. To give perspective, the popular box office hits of the time were, Hannah Montana, The Movie, and Fast and Furious.

Technically speaking, this was not a traditional budget, as it was a complete reworking of the president’s submitted budget, which failed to garner a single vote from even his own party. In order to find the last “real” budget passed, one that was offered by the president and voted on intact (for the most part) by both houses of Congress, we have to travel back to 1997 under Bill Clinton. The FY2010 budget passed on April 29, 2009, was actually more of an omnibus spending bill, constructed by a dominate democrat Congress under the auspices of ‘saving us from the terrible calamity left by Bush’.

Sarah Palin backs Ted Cruz, tells GOP to ‘Woman Up’ on Government Shutdown and ObamaCare

Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) may be the targets of the ′Surrender Caucus′, but they do have one loud supporter. Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin tells the GOP to ′woman up′ on the government shutdown and ObamaCare debate. The U.S. Senate is about to take up the House continuing resolution, CR, which would defund the Affordable Care Act. Harry Reid is lining up his party to defeat it and block a potential filibuster by Cruz, Lee and Rand Paul (R-KY). The RINO brigade, led by John ′The Old Faker′ McCain is also busy whipping Republicans to stop the ′wacko birds′. But to Sarah Palin, the GOP Establishment is ′gutless and rudderless′, and compromising far too much.

Obama Income Inequality Worsens In America

Under Barack Obama, income inequality for all in America has gotten much worse in the United States. This news comes as Obama tries to pivot back to the economy, seeing as how he totally failed in foreign policy the last few weeks. But Obama has been failing with the economy since taking office. While the White House tries to spin good news about an economic recovery, the only folks benefiting are the wealthy. About 95% of all gains in income went to the top 1%. Also, the top 1% now account for 38% of all consumer spending. From when Bill Clinton took office to when George W. Bush left the White House, the top 1% went from 20% to 26% of all consumer spending. While school children are denied access to White House tours, lobbyists have free run of the place as they petition Obama for more money to feed their wealthy clients.

We are the Problem

I’m not exactly sure when it began, perhaps with the promise of a chicken in every pot, or maybe it was decades before, but the problem is clearly how we view politics in America. Whether it is state and local elections, or national campaigns, as each cycle rolls by, we tend to expect more and more. Politics have become a game of ‘one-upmanship’ largely at the expense of We The Taxpayer.

The Demise of the GOP

(ed note- RightPundits welcomes new writer, Brady Shaw.)

I believe we live in an historic time. We have watched the Progressive movement over the past 100 years chip away at our Constitutional societal constructs and infiltrate every aspect of government, now including even the Republican party. Oh, there are still a few great Republicans out there, carrying the torch of liberty exemplified in the Tea Party movement and so on, but the party establishment seems to be entranced with the same Progressive mindset as the modern liberal. I believe we are witnessing the demise of the GOP before our very eyes. Read the rest of this entry »

Blue Angels Grounded, Cancelled by Obama Budget

The Navy′s Blue Angels are grounded, cancelled by the sequestration budget cut thanks to Barack Obama. The rest of the famous stunt-flying team′s schedule for 2013 has been suspended, including New York City′s Fleet Week, much like the White House tours. Likewise the same fate has the Air Force′s Thunderbirds grounded for the rest of their 2013 schedule. Air Force General Mike Hostage of Air Combat Command has also begun grounding other air operations, standing down units due to federal budget cuts. The impact on training and operational readiness will certainly be a negative one.
