The Real Story of the 110th Congress: The Right-Wing Block-And-Blame Game

As the 110th Congress nears its close, the impact of a record-breaking campaign of obstruction by a conservative minority in the Senate is now more clear than ever. The right-wing strategy of "block and blame" has driven the public perception of a "do-nothing Congress." In reality, the 110th Congress would have achieved truly landmark accomplishments—including safely bringing the troops home from Iraq, reducing America's dependence on foreign oil and its contribution to global warming, and funding long-neglected domestic priorities—had it not been for conservative obstruction.

Our October 2008 block-and-blame analysis cuts through the political spin. We document how what is being reported as political stalemate is really the product of a conservative political strategy, both in Congress and the White House, to sabotage the new majority in Congress as it responds to the mandate it received from the American public—even if it means bringing down public support for the entire Congress in the process.

 

This is My email I sent in response to this post:

I'm glad I found this page. It's Very informative.

            Let me get this right, So what you are saying is that for the last 2 yrs of Bush's administration Democrat's ran congress? 

Hmmm.... So that means ummm... Demacrats set up this failed enonomy.

obama pushed for laws that he eventually signed into law as President. That's Very interesting, because obama keeps blaming Bush for the slow recovery. Yet Bush lost complete control of congress when the 110th Congress took control, and set about changing everything to cause the collapse of the housing market. And the Banking collapse.

            Which means that by the time obama took office Bush's policies had already been replaced. Is that right. You say that above.

            So in Reality The democrats and obama are really to blame for all of this mess. The Economy, the High Unemployment, The Higher levels of Welfare recipients, not to mention the weakening of America as a whole throughout the Entire World. That sound about right???

Thanks

How many of you feel the same about what I am about to say:

I have a problem with the cuts that most Politician want to cut first. If once these cuts are made, and we still need to cut the budget, I'll agree with cutting entitlements.

The first cuts that should be made are the ones you all give to other countries. Why do we have to go without to support everyone but The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Do you actually believe that they will help us if we needed it? The taxes from the hard working Americans should be used for hard working Americans and that alone. Cutting education, give me a break. We do not pay taxes to build-up other countries. They should be used for education, the elderly, the infra-structure, building up our energy needs, what ever that may be. We, the greatest nation is going down fast. We have to take care of us first so we can continue to the GREASTEST NATION.

Can anyone tell me anything about this so called shadow Government? Who are they, what in the heck do they think they are doing, And what the heck makes them think we will accept them better than we don't accept the Status quo going on Now???

A MESSAGE TO ALL TEA PARTY LEADERS AND MEMBERS



It is becoming very apparent that a large number of Republican politicians are looking to woo eligible Tea Party voters. The banter has been good at times and not to good at others. We all need to continually remind ourselves of the roots of the Tea Party and the involvement of the Republican Party in the creation of this mess that we currently find our government has led us into. The Republican and Democratic Parties are equally responsible. The corruption, excessive spending, violation of constitutional principles, intrusion into the personal lives of citizens, and the erosion of the moral fabric of our nation can be equally blamed on the corruption and self serving interests of the career politicians of both of our major political parties.

I'm afraid that the seduction of power and prestige is too much for some of the neophyte leaders of the Tea Party movement. If the leaders of the movement are falling prey to these seductions, forgetting the roots of our movement, they need to be removed and allow persons who better represent those grassroot values as well as the interests of the welfare of our nation to assume the helm.

The problem with the Republican party is that it has an incestuous relationship with corporate money and power. Since the party coffers are lined with monies from these as well as special interest groups they are very unlikely to alienate themselves from the golden goose.

I hope that this time it will be different, but history does not indicate it and common sense does not allow me to accept it.

Republican RINOs, Democrats and liberals of all description are running scared. Their political demise is rapidly removing them from positions of power. With power, comes responsibility… responsibility to the people, not to themselves, not to their parties, not to special interest groups but to the majority of the citizens of our nation.

Let us not forget that the Republican party endorsed Arlene Spectre over Pat Tomey, gave us Scarzafava in New York, and endorsed Crist over Rubio. Can we trust the Republican Party or for that matter any other career politician to bring conservative or moderate principles with them to Washington? I don't know, but I really don’t think that it is probable.

Remind all Tea Party members and especially leadership of the roots of our movement. The Tea Party movement is about returning power to its rightful and legal owners within our nation… We The People. It is not about empowering a new group of individual who’s only interests are self promotion, power, notoriety and personal agendas. After all folks, it is not about any one individual, it is about all the individuals who are fortunate enough to call themselves citizens of our great nation.

“I am neither Republican nor Democrat, Conservative nor Liberal, Right nor Left… I am an American and Damn proud of it… I will Stand Up, I will be Heard”

An Eerie Lesson From History... Does This Sound Familiar Today?


Don't Cry For Me, America


In the early 20th century, Argentina was one of the richest countries in the world. While Great Britain's maritime power and its far flung empire had propelled it to a dominant position among the world's industrialized nations, only the United States challenged Argentina for the position of the world's second most powerful economy.

It was blessed with abundant agriculture, vast swaths of rich farmland laced with navigable rivers and an accessible port system. Its level of industrialization was higher than many European countries: railroads, automobiles and telephones were commonplace.

In 1916, a new president was elected. Hipólito Irigoyen had formed a party called The Radicals under the banner of "fundamental change" with an appeal to the middle class.
Among Irigoyen's changes: mandatory pension insurance, mandatory health insurance, and support for low-income housing construction to stimulate the economy. Put simply, the state assumed economic control of a vast swath of the country's operations and began assessing new payroll taxes to fund its efforts.

With an increasing flow of funds into these entitlement programs, the government's payouts soon became overly generous. Before long its outlays surpassed the value of the taxpayers' contributions. Put simply, it quickly became under-funded, much like the United States' Social Security and Medicare programs.

The death knell for the Argentine economy, however, came with the election of Juan Perón. Perón had a fascist and corporatist upbringing; he and his charismatic wife aimed their populist rhetoric at the nation's rich.

This targeted group "swiftly expanded to cover most of the propertied middle classes, who became an enemy to be defeated and humiliated."

Under Perón, the size of government bureaucracies exploded through massive programs of social spending and by encouraging the growth of labor unions.

High taxes and economic mismanagement took their inevitable toll even after Perón had been driven from office. But his populist rhetoric and "contempt for economic realities" lived on. Argentina's federal government continued to spend far beyond its means.

Hyperinflation exploded in 1989, the final stage of a process characterized by "industrial protectionism, redistribution of income based on increased wages, and growing state intervention in the economy."
The Argentinean government's practice of printing money to pay off its public debts had crushed the economy. Inflation hit 3000%, reminiscent of the Weimar Republic. Food riots were rampant; stores were looted; the country descended into chaos.

And by 1994, Argentina's public pensions - the equivalent of Social Security - had imploded. The payroll tax had increased from 5% to 26%, but it wasn't enough. In addition, Argentina had implemented a value-added tax (VAT), new income taxes, a personal tax on wealth, and additional revenues based upon the sale of public enterprises. These crushed the private sector, further damaging the economy.
A government controlled "privatization" effort to rescue seniors' pensions was attempted. But, by 2001, those funds had also been raided by the government, the monies replaced by Argentina's defaulted government bonds.

By 2002, ".government fiscal irresponsibility. induced a national economic crisis as severe as America's Great Depression."


In 1902 Argentina was one of the world's richest countries. Little more than a hundred years later, it is poverty stricken, struggling to meet its debt obligations amidst a drought.

We've seen this movie before. The government’s populist plans can't possibly work, because government bankrupts everything it touches. History teaches us that Health Care Reform in its current form and unfunded entitlement programs will be utter, complete disasters.

Today's government is guilty of enslaving future generations to poverty and misery.

We the People must be heard! Take a stand today!

If You Own A Home.... Please Read This!!!
Added by Mark Littrell on February 27, 2012 at 11:27am in Tea Party
No matter your party - it is worth it to check out the following information - check it carefully and make a well informed decision – Protect yourself....

THIS WILL BLOW YOU AWAY !!!!!
The National Association of REALTORS is all over this and working to get it repealed, before it takes effect. But, I am very pleased we aren't the only ones who know about this ploy to steal billions from unsuspecting homeowners. How many REALTORS do you think will vote Democratic in 2012?
Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay a 3.8% sales tax on it? That's $3,800 on a $100,000 home, etc. When did this happen? It's in the health care bill and goes into effect in 2013.
Why 2013? Could it be to come to light AFTER the 2012 elections? So, this is "change you can believe in"? Under the new health care bill all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% Sales Tax.
If you sell a $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax.
This bill is set to screw the retiring generation who often downsize their homes. Does this make your November and 2012 vote more important?
Oh, you weren't aware this was in the Obamacare bill? Guess what, you aren't alone. There are more than a few members of Congress that aren't aware of it Either!
http://www.gop.gov/blog/10/04/08/obamacare-flatlines-obamacare-taxe...
I hope you forward this to every single person in your address book. VOTERS NEED TO KNOW.
================================================
Look carefully at the 2014 rate compared to the 2013 rate
EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW, NOT ONLY SENIORS.
For those of you who are on Medicare, read the following. It's short, but important and you probably haven't heard about it in the Marxist liberal media. "The per person Medicare Insurance Premium will increase from the present Monthly Fee of $96.40, rising to:
$104.20 in 2012
$120.20 in 2013
And
$247.00 in 2014."
These are Provisions incorporated in the Obamacare Legislation, purposely delayed so as not to confuse the 2012 Re-Election Campaigns. Send this to all Seniors that you know, so they will know who's throwing them under the bus.
REMEMBER THIS IN NOVEMBER 2012 AND VOTE!!!

We all have to work real hard to get obama out of office. He is trying to  make  our country into the newest muslin country. He is already sending all the tax payers money to all the muslin countries, while trying to take all the programs for our poor away. What is going on? And are we going to sit by quietly and do nothing? I want to hear from all who want to take a stand and get our country back?

Code Words to Remember:

Public-Private Partnership = Government-Sponsored market, opposed to a Free-Market.

Program =  the ever expanding role of government intervention, opposed to Limited Government

Incentives = unequal treatment under the law, a tax policy that panders favors to special interest supporters, social and corporate welfare, penalizing productivity and rewarding dependency as opposed to Fiscal Responsibility

Breaking: Jury Sides With Sheriff Joe
Smacks Down Establishment GOP’s Lawsuit

A jury has sided in favor of conservative icon, former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, against the lawsuit filed by Austin Flake, the son of GOP establishment Senator Jeff Flake, and Austin’s ex-wife, Logan Brown.

Flake and Brown had filed a lawsuit against the Arizona sheriff for “malicious prosecution” after over a dozen dogs died on their watch at a Gilbert dog kennel.

The jury decided Flake and Brown had failed to provide sufficient evidence to back up their accusations of malicious prosecution by Arpaio, The Associated Press reported via Tucson.com.

Flake and Brown ran the kennel while Brown’s parents were out of town in 2014, the AP reported.

The two were still in college.

Initially, Flake and Brown were charged in the incident, but the charges were dropped at the prosecution’s request. Later, Flake’s in-laws pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges after an expert determined that the facility air conditioner failed because it was not properly maintained.

Thus, the owners of the kennel were responsible for the death of the 21 dogs, and they answered for their crimes.

Nonetheless, Flake and Brown reportedly alleged that Arpaio had charged them to gain publicity and deal damage to Senator Flake — an establishment fixture within the GOP.

The two “contended the charges caused them emotional distress, contributed to the demise of their marriage and led the senator’s son to being suspended from college for an honor-code violation,” according to The Associated Press.

Despite the jury’s decision, the U.S. District Judge Neil V. Wake will not issue a final verdict until the defense explains why it didn’t turn over documents that may have benefited the plaintiffs, according to a statement from the plaintiffs’ attorney to The Associated Press.

“The struggle to hold government officials accountable has always required a steep, perilous climb,” the plaintiffs’ attorney said in a Friday statement according to KNPX.

“Although we disagree with the jury’s verdict, we are grateful we had the opportunity to force former Sheriff Arpaio and his subordinates at Maricopa County to account for their indisputably reckless conduct. Near the end of the trial, we discovered that the County failed to turn over documents that might have helped us prove our case,” he continued.

“The Court has ordered the County to explain its failure and indicated that it will not enter a final judgment in the case until a satisfactory explanation is provided. We will access our future options in this fight when the County complies with the Court’s Order.”

Charges that didn’t pan out are an annoyance to those affected — there’s no question of that.

But to claim that those charges — which were dropped — were the reason behind a failed marriage, and that Arpaio needs to pay is completely ridiculous.

What do you think about this story? Please share this on Facebook and Twitter and let us know!
