Senate Republicans Join Dems to Block Obamacare Fraud Probe

It's fair to say that one of the least popular senators on Capitol Hill these days is Louisiana's David Vitter  and that the displeasure extends to Democrats and many of his fellow Republicans alike.

Vitter, who is running for governor this year, hasn't won himself a lot of friends among his Senate colleagues with his determined effort to force members of Congress and their staffers to sign up for Obamacare, so they can experience what their constituents are dealing with  which all too often is chaos and frustration. 

This background may help explain why Vitter, chairman of the Senate Small Business Committee, suffered an unusual rebuke Thursday, when Republicans on the panel joined Democrats in voting against his efforts to investigate what he suspects is fraud committed by some congressional staffers in connection with enrollment in Obamacare. 

Vitter was demanding unredacted copies of health insurance applications used by members of Congress to enroll in the small-business exchange. The Louisiana lawmaker alleged that congressional staff had falsified documents in order to allow members of Congress and their staff to receive subsidized insurance, The Hill reported. 

But in what the website characterized as a "surprising" vote, five Republicans joined the committee's nine Democrats to oppose Vitter's efforts to issue a subpoena.

The government class are Americas aristocrats. They all should live under the same legislation they force down the American people's throats. Hypocrites all of them.

Odessa,

We have to find a better way than calling them names on this site! We have to stop this and put these people in prison where criminals should be. Now, how do we do this. When this is done there will be fear of 'WE THE PEOPLE'!

Federal Grand Jury complaint forms are the only way that will get this done as long as there are a large percentage of Americans that will file a complaint. 

Also, Odessa. You can file a "No Confidence" complaint letter with your Senators and always CC the opposition with the complaint. Now, this isn't as powerful as a Jury complaint, but it does put you on record that the administration is not doing their jobs with the intent posed through their oath of office.

Barry, hot prison, they need a gallows as hanging is the punishment for treason!!!!!

And Odessa, the government class are Americas elite of the elite criminal class.  They cover each others butts so no one goes to prison, no matter what crimes they commit.  It is a crime syndicate second to none in the world.  There is a pressing need for a giant house cleaning in Washington D.C.!

And, what are these RINO's names?

There are few republicans.

The republicrats are the new democraps.

The democraps are the socialists.

My blood just keeps on boiling, and I think it will never return to even a simmer.

There's no difference between what used to be the Republican Party and the Democrat/Socialist Party.  May they all rot in hell.

I call them the elephant and donkey wings of the NEW WORLD ORDER SOCIALIST PARTY (NWOSP)

ANY HOPE THAT I HAVE LEFT FOR THE SURVIVAL OF AMERICA IS PRACTICALLY ALL GONE ALL WE CAN DO NOW IS MAKE SURE THAT OUR HEARTS BELONG TO THE KING OF KINGS & LORD OF LORDS JESUS CHRIST AND PRAY THAT THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WILL GET HIS FOLLOWERS OUT OF THIS WORLD IN A PRE TRIBULATION RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH!!! HOUSE & SENATE REPUBLICANS ARE GIVING BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA FAST-TRACK AUTHORITY IN REGARDS TO THE TRANS PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP AS YOU CAN TELL THIS COUNTRY IS DOOMED FOR DESTRUCTION!!!

Goodbye 2020: Clinton Ordered By Federal Judge To Submit To Questioning

(TeaParty.org) – Just when Hillary Clinton began hinting that she’s ready to run again in 2020, she has been ordered by a federal judge to submit to questioning about the use of her private email server to convey classified documents during her time as Secretary of State.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan made the order as part of a lawsuit from conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

“Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions — including key q’s about the setting up of her email system,” wrote Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a tweet following the ruling.

BREAKING: Judicial Watch announced today that, following JW's court battle, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled that Hillary Clinton must answer – under oath – two additional questions on her controversial email system within 30 days.

Breaking: Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions -- including key q's about the setting up of her email system. Court denied our request to unseal vid depositions of Clinton aides. Great work by Michael Bekesha!

As a statement from Judicial Watch explains, the ruling is the latest development in the group’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, which they began to discover why former deputy chief of staff to Mrs. Clinton, Huma Abedin, was allowed to work at the State Department while also engaged in “outside employment.”

Clinton now has 30 days to answer two key questions from a list of 25 questions composed by Judicial Watch.

The questions the judge selected are:

1) “Describe the creation of the clintonemail.com system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.”

During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails “were in the State’s system” and “if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.” Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of these facts.

This new development is huge because it means that the two critical scandals from Clinton’s time in the State Department, her private email server and the Benghazi attacks, are facing fresh scrutiny in both the legal system and the court of public opinion.

And while Clinton likely had little chance of any run in 2020, this makes it even less likely she will stand even a shred of a chance.

We’ve have got to hope and pray that at long last, this leads to the long overdue criminal charges we’ve all been waiting to see.
