What A Difference Two Days Make…..
ALOHA, ALL! As you get ready for the weekend, I thought you might want to know what the new Congress has been up to:
Marsha Blackburn & 46 co-sponsors introduce legislation to rein in the EPA: Nearly 50 House Republicans offer bill to block EPA climate rules – The Hill’s E2-Wire.
No more czars???? Republicans introduce bill to eliminate presidential ‘czars’ – The Hill’s Blog Briefing Room. The legislation, which was introduced in the last Congress but was not allowed to advance under Democratic control, would do away with the 39 czars Obama has employed during his administration. Here’s a czar list from Glen Beck.
Investigations starting into DOJ & the New Black Panther case: Right Turn – EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Lamar Smith issues first DOJ oversight letter.
Oh yeah….now that the CBO is getting the right numbers, it turns out repealing 0bamacare would actually reduce spending: The American Spectator : AmSpecBlog : BREAKING: CBO Says Repealing ObamaCare Would Reduce Net Spending by $540 Billion. But didn’t Nancy Nitwit say that reduced spending & deficit reduction was her “mantra”???? (Maybe she doesn’t know what mantra means, poor dear.) Here’s a GREAT look into the left-wing loony brain that may give some insight on how they think: Inside The Lefty Brain (Thanks to Rob – a definite non-lefty – for the link!)
Check out Paul Ryan’s graph of the REAL costs of 0bamacare: Costly Consequences of Healthcare Overhaul
UPDATE: THERE’S EVEN MORE! This link was just sent to me by the Sam Adams Alliance. There were actually 21 new bills introduced by the new GOP leadership dealing with taxes, spending & 0bamacare: Yesterday in Congress (BTW, note the lame bills introduced by Dems.)
And finally – this screen shot from John Boehner’s Facebook page:
