Less than two weeks after one of the nation's deadliest school shootings, the No.2 Democrat in the U.S. House, Steny Hoyer, compared Republican tactics for dealing with the nation's debt limit to someone threatening to shoot a child hostage.

"It's somewhat like taking your child hostage and saying to somebody else, 'I'm going to shoot my child if you don't do what I want done.' You don't want to shoot your child. There's no Republican leader that wants to default on our debt, that I've talked to," Hoyer said at a Capitol Hill press conference.

Hoyer's comments came in response to a question about the Treasury Department's notice that the nation was approaching its debt limit. He criticized Republicans for previous resistance to raising the debt ceiling and used the gun analogy to argue that the issue should not be part of the negotiations involving the fiscal cliff.

The repubs are going to have to start slinging some mud back in their face or continue looking weak to the nuts that elected the fraud. See you on the battle field.

The media has no sense of right and wrong to let him get away with such a statement! I wonder if he has a weapons' permit?

Hoyer is just another phony democrat who thinks he's intelligent. The fact he's been elected tells me even his electorate is of the same mold.

Trying to use fear to get me to do something you want is like adding gasoline to a house fire. It just pisses me off even more.

By the way, Hoyer, take the flag off your lapel. You communists aren't American.

No! we do not need to sling mud! We need to sling Facts!

The Rabid, Radical, Left will sling all the mud and lies. We, the calm, Right know how to tell the truth. 

We love honesty and truth and God.

We have our Book that teaches all truth. 

Let the truth prevail.

 

 Does Stenny Hoyer have a permit to carry?

The part about waiting for the GOP to do something Patriotic is past.With some young Tea Party as a exception the GOP is dead and buried,their heads stuck in the corruption trough with their liberal brethren.The truth is that it is the time to recruit and educate all you can.Shut off all donations to the GOP.Instead support with money and efforts the Tea Party and sites like this.We have no free press,we have no judicial system,we have no legislative system.Jobs are going away,food is going up,TSA is looming large,and all the illegal activities of this administration are never addressed.So if we are going to have any say at all it will have to be from the TP who both sides hate.This story about a true socialist like Hoyer using a child murder scenario in describing our legislative process is the level of disrespect they show to the American people.All the while we are supposed to find some sympathy for the brain dead"OBama Phone Lady" on their side.This is a dog and pony show to get us to be distracted while they install a Communist Regime.You should be active ,there should be no time left in your actions to decide ,just do it!!If you don't like you tea party group tough! suck it up make it better ,the next few months are critical.     

Robert you are so right (correct) in the things you said. Thank you

Very good points Robert..we have to fight fire with fire and Hoyer should be where they start right now today. You are right about cutting funds to this republican party they are useless when it comes to standing up for conservatives that support them .

 WHAT A MORONIC MAD MAN !!!!!  Quick !  take his fancy ass office pen, pencil set away from him, before he signs something!  He's going to kill us all with his support of OBAMA !!!!

I swear MANY DEMS. / LIBERALS HAVE GOT TO BE EATING THOSE FUNKY MUSHROOMS !!!! WHAT A CRAZED MANIAC !

Republicans should now be all over this clown and embarass him . Call him out or we'll throw you republicans out.

 Dan ......  I so, agree with you. The G.O.P. NEEDS TO DO WHAT ROCKY DID IN THE MOVIE ... CHASE THAT DAMNED CHICKEN AROUND FOR A WHILE, UNTIL IT GET'S TIRED, AND WE GET A STRANGLE HOLD, ON THEM!

Thanks Freedom .....If any of you are on Twitter then post Hoyers remarks on Twitter and call for republicans to defend us. Twitter is a good way to connect with the leaders and prominent people and get our word out which is " We won't take this anymore " .

ALERT ALERT

YUP: President Trump Signs Great And Beautiful Trump Border Wall During Tour In San Diego

Embedded video

President Donald Trump visited the San Diego border on Wednesday to show off a newly constructed portion of the wall after a fundraising trip in California.

“It’s an amazing project,” Trump said, pointing to the 30-foot high barrier constructed with steel and concrete, noting that it also went six feet underground.

“If you think you’re going to cut it with a blow torch, that doesn’t work, because you hit the concrete, and then if you think you’re going to go through the concrete, that doesn’t work because we have very powerful rebar inside,” Trump said.

The president traveled via motorcade after a fundraiser to Otay Mesa, a community outside San Diego on the United States -Mexico border to review the latest constructed physical barrier.

He pointed out the new wall structure to the press, which was 24 miles of primary and secondary wall at the border.

“We have it covered underground, we have it covered overground,” Trump said.

The president was joined by acting Department of Homeland security Kevin McAllen and several other border security officials.

He said that over 44,000 bollard panels had been set up for the wall, which was then filled with concrete and rebar.

Trump admitted that he envisioned a solid concrete wall when he campaigned for president, but he was told by border officials that they preferred a wall constructed by concrete-filled bollards so they could see through it.

“It’s hardened concrete, very powerful concrete,” Trump said, pointing to the structure.

He added that the steel wall was designed to retain heat, making it harder to climb, plus having an anti-climbing system at the top.

“You can fry an egg on that wall,” he said. The president also acknowledged to reporters that he wanted the wall to be painted black and have spikes but said it was cheaper to let it remain naturally rust-colored.

“We can paint it later,” he said.

The president discussed his growing understanding of border barriers, noting that the Southern border would not need much more than 500 miles of wall to secure the border. He cited the existence of natural mountain and river barriers that prevented criminals from crossing. He did not rule out building additional barriers in the future but said it would depend on whether it was needed.

One border patrol agent spoke about the importance of the border wall to all of the agents, thanking the president for pushing forward on construction.

Trump said he met with Border Patrol prior to constructing the wall, picking the most effective structures to protect the border.

One border security official scoffed at the idea that the wall was a “vanity” project for the president.

“There’s a false narrative out there that this wall is the president’s vanity wall,” he said. “I’m here to tell you right now that that is false.”

He thanked Trump for listening to border patrol agents during the planning and construction process.

“You listened to the agents and you gave them exactly what they asked for,” he said.

One official with Trump confirmed that the structure was funded with regular Congressional appropriations in the FY 2017 and FY 2018 and that that the new wall replaced an inferior structure.

Trump said that he still considered the situation on the border a national emergency, but as more wall went up he could withdraw military forces.

“I hope you’re impressed,” he told reporters as he took questions about the project.

One worker told Trump of a tradition of workers signing the wall if they worked on the wall.

“I’ll sign it,” Trump said, and went to the wall and signed the steel barrier with a marker before encouraging other officials present to do the same.
