Budget Deal Is Bipartisanship At Its Worst
Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:RockyTCB, 2/9/2018 7:28:11 AM

Big Government: Nothing brings together the two political parties in Washington like a bill that lets them spend more taxpayer money. Just look at the back slapping going on after the Senate agreed to a budget-busting bill. Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell crowed about how the Senate leadership "worked hard to find common ground." Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer added that "I believe we have reached a budget deal that neither side loves but both sides can be proud of. That´s compromise. That´s governing." If this budget agreement is what passes for governing in Washington, we´d like to see less of it, not

Just guessing, but I suspect the world doesn’t end in a nuclear holocaust - it ends in a world wide financial Armageddon. Sooner or later the worlds deficit chickens are going to come home to roost and it ain’t gonna be purdy. You might want to lay in some extra canned goods and cartridges. We may need them sooner than you think.

It is too bad that Steve Bannon turned out to be such a goofball. We need an army of true patriots recruited for the next election to primary out the remaining RINO´s in both houses of congress.

Witness the UniParty at work. Great Kabuki at our childrens´ expense. Scowling Nancy creates the DACA diversion, while the progs get EVERYTHING else they want.

No funding for the wall, no infrastructure funding, extension of CHIP and other prog programs.

Nada for MAGA.

DACA? They´ll get that in a few weeks.

Talk about "Art of the Deal": President Trump has been outmaneuvered by the swamp ..

.. unless he vetoes this monstrosity and lets the government shut down. The stock market is in a (needed) major correction, anyway.

Your move, Mr. President.

It’s Buy Partisanship, not bipartisanship. Unfortunately, the evil and stupid parties are buying this enormous spending deal with our money.

Forget the costly military parade. Need to have a Taxpayers March to show who is shouldering this burden through higher taxes, higher deficits and higher cost of government. Perhaps we will be offered the same generous FBI pensions if we go away.

Because they think the government shutting down is the end of the world while the rest of us think it´s a nice break from bipartisanship.

These fools (at least most of them) need to go home to constituents and get an earful. But they´d rather stay in DC surrounded by their echo chamber.

President Trump is not stupid. He tricked Schmucky a few weeks ago and he just did it again. He knows that the only way to a democrat´s heart is through our wallets. He dangled this money in front of their greedy faces and they bit. Now you will see so many deep and wide cuts in their favorite agencies and cash cows that they won´t be able to find a place to spend it. This is poker not chess.

The wall will cost billions but it will save us trillions when the flow of illegals dries up. A beefed-up military will stop all major wars and quickly put an end to the skirmishes. Putin does not have the resources to back up his ambitions. His progress so far was only due to the ball-less Obango. The death of the democrat party is now imminent.

ObamaCare Failure: Uninsured Rate
Hasn´t Budged In 3 Years, CDC Says
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 5/24/2018 7:30:22     Post Reply
Health Reform: For three years running, the uninsured rate has remained unchanged, new government data show. That means, despite massive taxpayer costs, ObamaCare is tapped out. It´s time to try something better. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the overall uninsured rate last year was 9.1%, the same as it was in 2015. If you take out retirees, who are automatically covered by Medicare, the uninsured rate was 10.7% last year, up a fraction from 10.5% in 2015. The uninsured rate for the near poor hasn´t budged in three years. And it´s climbed for those characterized by the CDC as "not poor."

Dossier, Was Behind Trump Investigation

SpyGate: Did the Obama administration spy on the Donald Trump campaign because it feared Russian hacking of the 2016 election? Or was it merely a smokescreen to cover up the real reason: to keep Trump from winning the presidency or take him down if he did? As the saying goes, timing is everything. Recent revelations keep pushing back the beginning of the CIA and FBI investigation into "Russian hacking" or "meddling" in the 2016 election further and further in time. This is significant, since the farther back in time the actual origin of the spying on Trump, the less likely it is that it had anything to do with Russian involvement in

Over the weekend, U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman detailed how the liberal media sides with Hamas over President Trump. How correct he is. When I worked at the Pentagon, I had the honor to interact often with the Israel Defense Forces. In the years since, my admiration for those men and women and for the State of Israel has increased exponentially in response to the escalating terrorist threats the country faces, the hate the people endure, and the abandonment by many on the left and certain liberal or socialist "allies" its leadership suffers with diplomatic grace. Much of this abandonment coming because of

Iran Nukes: While all the hoopla over Deep-State spying on President Trump gets the media attention, something else important happened this week: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, not even one month on the job, unveiled a new U.S. strategy to deal with Iran. What´s significant is that the new strategy is a complete reversal of the make-nice policies that prevailed under President Obama. Gone are the gentle nudges intended to cause marginal shifts in Iran´s behavior; instead, the new strategy boldly aims for regime change in Iran. Whether it works or not, it is a worthwhile goal.

Growth: A new report shows that the median household income has climbed 3% since President Trump took office. It´s another sign of a strong economy, and at least one poll shows the public credits Trump for the good news. Should Democrats wave bye to the Blue Wave? Median household income has been steadily increasing under Trump, rising from $59,471 in January 2017 to $61,483 last month, according to Sentier Research, which tracks income on a monthly basis using census data. This also means that household income is now higher than it´s been in at least 50 years — after adjusting for inflation. This

Scandalous Media Bias: There have been two major ongoing investigations involving President Trump. One is looking into whether Trump colluded with Russia. It´s borne no fruit. The other involves abuse of power at the highest levels of government to hurt Trump and is producing damning evidence by the bushel. Guess which one the press is ignoring? National Review writer John Fund relates an interesting story. He was waiting to go on the air and struck up a conversation with another prominent reporter in the network´s green room. Why, he asked, aren´t reporters actively investigating the suspicious activities at the Justice Department and

Political Spying: As Robert Mueller´s chimerical Russia-Trump collusion probe grinds on, a real possible crime has been revealed: the collusion between the Justice Department, the FBI, the Clinton campaign and, possibly, the Obama administration, to plant a spy in the Trump campaign. If so, as some say, it´s bigger than Watergate. The spy´s name is Stefan Halper, a professor at Cambridge University who has high-level ties to both U.S. and British intelligence, as Daily Caller New Foundation investigative reporter Chuck Ross discovered. The revelation made Trump livid, and rightly so, as his tweet on Sunday afternoon plainly showed: "I hereby demand, and will

Tax Cuts: When Republicans were putting together their tax reform plan last year, a chorus of critics warned that it would devastate state budgets. Like so many other claims, this turned out to be false. The New York Times reported in November, for example, that "state and local officials in high-tax states like New York, New Jersey and California are warning the tax plan will strain state budgets." A "news analysis" in the Washington Post said the tax law would make "it harder for states and cities to pay their bills." A widely cited National Education Association report claimed the GOP tax bill

   

 



 
The Net Neutrality Zombie Lives!

Internet: The Senate has voted to raise net neutrality from the dead, a very bad idea. Worse, the 52-47 margin of victory included three Republicans who should know better. We hope it dies in the House. "Net neutrality" is one of those brilliant marketing gimmicks that passes as something that enhances equality and freedom, but in fact destroys it. President Obama´s Federal Communications Commission in 2015 imposed net neutrality, requiring internet service providers to treat all internet traffic the same. Sure, that sounds good, even democratic, but it isn´t. In fact, most economists agree, it will lead to slower times

Big Left Turn: Are socialists becoming the new Democratic Party mainstream? After candidates endorsed by the socialist party won nomination battles for state legislative seats in Pennsylvania and far-left progressives triumphed over moderates elsewhere, the answer seems to be yes. Four — count ´em, four — candidates backed by the Democratic Socialists of America won spots on the ballot during this week´s primary elections in the Keystone State. Two of them won´t even be opposed by a Republican in the general election. Some are writing it off as a fluke, a local aberration, but it isn´t. Increasingly, the national Democratic Party is

Politics: Before President Trump even took the oath of office, constitutional law scholar Laurence Tribe was calling for his impeachment. Tribe hasn´t stopped since. But 20 years ago, Tribe was singing a different tune about impeachment when a lawbreaking Democrat was in the White House. In early December, less than a month after Trump won the election, Tribe tweeted that impeachment should begin "on Inauguration Day." Eight days after Inauguration Day, Tribe declared that Trump was already guilty of "shredding the Constitution more monstrously than any other President in American history." He´s since claimed Trump should be impeached and removed from office for

NFL club owners are considering potential 15-yard penalties for kneeling during the national anthem among ways of coping with a backlash over player protests, Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday. According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard

Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision.
