Naturally, the effort failed, as Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is not an adult, but rather a political point-scoring machine. Granted, a badly programmed and defective machine, but a machine nonetheless: What we learn from this, once again, is that a) Democrats have no ability to look beyond the next election, and b) Paul Ryan is still Superman.
“We are not governing here today, we are greasing the skids for an abuse of a budget procedure intended to control the size of government, not expand it.”
Delivering the Republican response to President Pantsonfire’s weekly cavalcade of leftist BS: Somehow, the greater the public opposition to the healthcare bill, the more determined they seem to force it on us anyway. Their attitude shows Washington at its very worst – the presumption that they know best, and they’re going to get their way whether the American people like … Read More
As with all things relating to the Zombie Bill From Hell (I refer of course to Obamacare; I’d link to the bill under discussion at the moment, but, you know, there isn’t one), this must be taken with a grain of salt, but if true, this certainly seems promising.

You better believe I just left a message on Deal’s voicemail thanking him for his decision. Everyone who does something like this to … Read More
The Weekly Standard: The bottom line? Despite the liberal pushback, Ryan’s arguments remain compelling. (The Journal has more on them here.) Which shouldn’t come as a surprise. When a politician finds his moment, everything breaks his way.
I don’t make a habit of calling congressional offices outside my district; especially not Democrat congressional offices outside my district. But I made an exception for Bart Stupak today. Now, I hadn’t seen this coming. The backstory is this: Stupak is one of the ostensibly “pro-life Democrats” in congress. Now, I’m very skeptical about the idea of “pro-life Democrats,” because … Read More
Last night, Jim Bunning was the only Senator with the balls to stand up and object to some more out-of-control spending in order to ask how we’re paying for it: …when no other Senator, including anyone in Republican leadership, would stand up, Senator Bunning took to the floor to object to a unanimous consent request to call up and pass … Read More
