GOP: Screw you, veterans! You have enough already!

September 19, 2012

Republicans continue to claim that they “seldom, if ever” use the filibuster to get their way. Well, today must be “seldom day,” because U.S. Senate Republicans blocked The Veterans Jobs Corps Act that would have created 20,000 jobs for military veterans that would have provided $1 billion over five years to help veterans find work […]

Republicans: “Abortion? Because of rape? That’s a lotta hooey.”

Occasionally, I’m accused by some commenters of “skewing things against Republicans,” or that I’m a “shill for Obama.” So, today, to underscore how wrong those assessments are, and to hopefully drive home the point that my “attacks” against Republicans are neither unwarranted nor untrue, I’m simply going to post some verbatim quotes by Republicans and […]

Republicans in the Senate today filibustered the Disclose Act, which would have required disclosure of anyone who donates to independent groups that spent more than $10,000 on campaign ads — or their functional equivalent — and other election spending. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell called the Disclose Act “un-American” and “an attempt to identify and punish […]

It’s time for a fresh look at the Republicans in Congress and how they’re maintaining that “laser-like focus on jobs, jobs, jobs.” If you go to the Republican Congressional website — http://www.gop.gov — and then click on “Bills,” you’ll see a complete list of all bills currently proposed by any Republican in Congress, you get […]

GOP to teachers and firefighters: G.F.Y.

October 21, 2011

Senate Republicans today give a gigantic, blatant “GFY” to teachers and firefighters throughout the country today as they scuttled jobs legislation aimed at helping state and local governments avoid layoffs of teachers and firefighters. And this was AFTER the proposal had already been whittled down to meet the requirements Republicans said they wanted before they […]

Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 tax plan sounds really simple. The problem is, you’d have to be simple to think this plan is sound.  You’d have to be outright retarded to think it’s a good idea. Despite numerous requests, the Cain campaign refuses to release the nuts-and-bolts details of his plan, but according to his website, it’s […]

I keep hearing John Boehner and Mitch McConnell and a whole slew of second-and-third tier Republicans bashing the Obama jobs speech that will be delivered this Thursday by the President. Several of the GOP D-listers in Congress are trying to scoop some headline spotlight attention by declaring that they’ll boycott the speech because “America needs […]
