Ryan, Republicans Aim Big with Obamacare Replacement

Ryan, Republicans Aim Big with Obamacare Replacement:
House speaker Paul Ryan said Wednesday that the House GOP's new Obamacare replacement is focused more on quality than quantity.
That's true, as far as the substance goes. But as far as the number of proposals in the health care package is concerned, quantity doesn't take second place to anything.
The comprehensive platform released as part of Ryan's A Better Way agenda unifies several Republican priorities from recent years with a couple of popular Affordable Care Act carryovers. It counters a central Democratic critique of the GOP—that its only health-care idea has been to eliminate the president's health-care law—and aims to encourage a competitive insurance market that suppresses costs and ups the quality of care.
And that starts with giving you a choice. Instead of forcing you to buy a plan that Washington bureaucrats have mass-produced, we're going to repeal those mandates and let you pick a plan that works for you, Ryan said at the American Enterprise Institute. We're saying, don't force people to buy insurance

I'll believe this when my health care premiums return to pre-2008 levels with the same coverage.

Urgent Call for All 7th District Citizens

Comrade Boehner has stomped his foot and thrown a hissy-fit and cut Dave Brat off from all PAC funds because Dr Brat has voted his principles and against Comrade Boehner. Dr Brat has done what we expected him to do when we booted Boehners Butt Boy Cantor out and installed a true conservative.
Now he needs our help to close the gap. Whatever you can spare. Let's show Dr Brat we were serious about a change in direction. Pony up, Citizens.

Free Speech Can Get You Killed? Support It Anyway

This is written by Elise Cooper, who also reviews books for our friends over at

The Western world needs to understand that the rights of freedom of speech; freedom of the press; and life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are all coming under fire with the assassinations of the ten Charlie Hebdo journalists by Islamic terror...

Your CINC should have welcomed you home PERSONALLY.

After 214 days in a Mexican prison, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi returned home to Florida Saturday. Supposedly he was released after strong diplomatic pressure was applied by 
 Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico and Reps. Ed Royce (R-CA) and Matt Salmon (R-AZ).

Where was the President?
Take a look at at that time line again. 



Welcome Home, Sgt. Tahmooressi.

Cantor Needs To Go

Once thought of as a new type of successful conservative politician, 
 RedState has been instrumental in spreading  the truth about Eric Cantor.

 Eric Cantor has proven himself to be just another lying politician. 
It is now safe to say that Eric Cantor wins the award for the most dishonest campaign of the election cycle.  And given the fact that every establishment candidate has run a campaign based on distorting their own record or issue positions, that is saying a lot.
After sending out a series of shockingly dishonest mailers and appallingly deceitful TV ads, Cantor blasted out an email last week accusing his primary opponent, Dave Brat, of having the support of “a liberal pro-amnesty group.”
You literally can’t make this stuff up.

It is now time for Eric Cantor to prove his bonafides.  

If he is really to the right of Dave Brat on the issue, he should put his mouth where his money is and pledge not to bring any amnesty bill to the floor as Majority Leader or Speaker.  We can end the games right now.

What Gun Control Politicians Are Selling

There is nothing to add to this man's powerful statement. Remember his words when you hear politicians talking about "reasonable" gun control. He heard the very same words 50 years ago.

Its Bravo Sierra and Retribution


Chris Ashby, a very well respected DC area attorney, provides a great summation of the incredibly weak indictment filed by the federal government against Governor Bob McDonnell.  
If you care about due process and fairness under the law, take the time to read his excellent thoughts on this false indictment built upon a discredited witness. 
The Restoration Fund

First Take: U.S. v. McDonnell
Ten Quick Thoughts on the Case Against Bob McDonnell
The indictment of Bob McDonnell is a gut punch to all who knew him, worked for him, admired and believed in him and his leadership style. Earlier today, on Twitter, I posted these ten quick thoughts on the law and politics of the case against him:
1. I was struck by the outburst of snark and schadenfreude from the chattering class on Twitter as news of the indictment broke. Whatever your policy disputes with him, Bob McDonnell played politics in a different way - thoughtful, respectful, fair - even with his opponents. The political chattering class would do well to learn to play Twitter that way, too. There but for the grace of God go we.
2. There has been much focus on the sensational facts of the indictment, but little if any focus on the law.
3. Bob McDonnell was the Governor of Virginia, elected by people of Virginia, exercising authority granted to him by the Constitution and laws of Virginia. And the conduct Bob McDonnell is accused of was entirely legal under Virginia law. For years, the Virginia General Assembly has determined that, without an express quid pro quo, no gift in any amount can corrupt or appear to corrupt a public official. Now, however, the Department of Justice apparently regards Virginia's law as insufficient to protect the people of Virginia from the man they elected to lead them, so it's indicting Bob McDonnell under federal law. In so doing, DOJ is substituting its policy preferences for will of the people of Virginia's elected representatives - charging Bob McDonnell federally for legal state conduct.
4. And where is that quid pro quo? DOJ has Jonnie Williams, so if there was a quid pro quo, wouldn't he have given it to them? But the indictment of Bob McDonnell pleads no facts proving any express quid pro quo.
5. Of course, the law on the requirement of a quid pro quo in Honest Services and Hobbs Act cases is all over the map. In some cases, it must be express. In other cases, it may be explicit, meaning it can be implied from the facts and circumstances. In campaign contribution cases, the quid pro quo generally must be express - because the underlying act is legal. In gift cases, the quid pro quo generally may be explicit (i.e., inferred) - because the underlying act usually is illegal. The McDonnell case is a gift case, but it's more akin to a contribution case, because unlimited gifts were expressly legal under Virginia law. DOJ clearly believes it doesn't need an express quid pro quo to convict Bob McDonnell. Expect this to be a central issue in the case.
6. Speaking of quid pro quos, how about DOJ's deal with Jonnie Williams? And what about the former Bob McDonnell staffer who Williams actually may have offered a six-figure private sector salary to in exchange for her help? Does she have a deal with DOJ too?
7. I don't know a single fair-minded Virginian who thinks Bob McDonnell deprived us of his "honest services," whatever that even means. And I also don't know anyone who thinks Bob McDonnell used his official position to EXTORT Jonnie Williams, as the Hobbs Act requires. As for the cover-up counts, I don't think the government should be able to imprison people for covering up crimes they are acquitted of.
8. Everybody's asking, "Is prosecution of Bob McDonnell political?" Of course it is. That's not the right question. The question is, "Is this prosecution fair?" From the beginning, the prosecution of Bob McDonnell has been conducted unfairly. Government agents leaking info to Washington Post reporters obtained in course of supposedly confidential law enforcement investigation of presumedly innocent man? DOJ cutting deals with the alleged briber, and possibly his co-conspirator, charging Bob McDonnell's wife as an accessory instead? Withholding evidence that is clearly exculpatory of Bob McDonnell?
9. For yrs, DOJ has said that public corruption is the federal government's #1 domestic law enforcement priority. I get that. Corrupt politics strikes at the very foundation of our democracy & undermines the legitimacy of its government. Dishonest politicians stretch the law and push the envelope, so DOJ and the Public Integrity Section must push and stretch to keep them in check. But poor personal and political judgment are not federal crimes. The facts alleged in Bob McDonnell's indictment reflect poorly on his personal and political judgment, but were expressly legal under Virginia law. DOJ was right to investigate this matter, but given legal state law conduct and the absence of an express quid pro quo, it should not have indicted Bob McDonnell. He has paid and will continue to pay very high price for his mistakes - shamed, disgraced, and flat broke by end of this case. He should not lose his freedom too.
10. Our adversarial justice system depends on defendants having the will and resources necessary to fight the relatively limitless will and resources of the government. Bob McDonnell faces a long, costly, draining fight versus a merciless adversary. I pray he'll have the resolve and funding he needs to see it through.
