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!!!

OMG!! WTF!!: Rep. Ilhan Omar Tells CNN That She Doesn’t Know Why Her Anti-Israel Tweets Would Offend Jewish People

Rep. Ilhan Omar defended her anti-Israel sentiments on CNN on Thursday, saying that she doesn’t know why those comments would offend the Jewish-American community.

Omar famously tweeted in 2012 that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

When asked about the tweet by CNN, Omar responded, “oh, that’s a really regrettable way of expressing that. I don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish-Americans.”

Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.

Omar added that her comments were “precisely addressing what was happening during the Gaza war,” and that she was “clearly” speaking about the way the “Israeli regime” was “conducting themselves in that war.”

Oh?!

Without any follow-up or push back, CNN moved on to asking the accused antisemitic congresswoman about her opinions on Rep. Steve King and his “racist remarks.”

While her perceived antisemitism is given a pass — Rep. King is boldly branded without any hesitation.

King has repeatedly stated that he was taken out of context and disavowed white supremacy and all forms of hatred – while Omar stands behind her bigotry. Yet, only King is facing consequences and blow back.
