Schumer is the problem. So is Mitch McCONnell. The problem is the Senate but Mike Lee with Thomas Massie keep trying to educate the public on the bottle neck process that is hurting the American people while oppressing the taxpayers. Like David Horowitz says: It’s the Senate, Stupid.
Engaging our politicians is the way it should be done. That is the way it must be done. Our unified voices insisting our politicians consistently press house and senate leadership for an Up-or-Down-vote on each of the 12 bills creates transparency. Then there is accountability. Then there are no more excuses so the House and Senate members can truly do the work We, the People, sent them there to do.
America is not a country for servile men and women. We not only have a right to be free, but a duty to be free.

The Continuing Resolution is all about extending the federal discretionary funds after April 28, 2017. Honestly, Congress has the Power of the Purse so with the threat of a Government Shutdown by the Democrats I say WHO CARES?
“They” claim Shutdown Government. Nope. No. No it is not a shutdown. It is a slowdown, a partial shutdown that keeps Congress from spending money but funds the military and other critical organizations within government. There have been slowdowns in the last several years and hey, I am all good with the slowing down of D.C. nonsense. (Read: Can the House Avoid a Government Shutdown?)
This piece by Rachel Bovard is interesting: Shunning the Shutdown. Beware the OMNIBUS spending bill! (Yes, the thought of the Omnibus bill makes me want to spit!) Remember this in 2014?
I have to put this video in from PragerU because it is important to #FrameTheDebate when it comes to budgeting and spending issues.
Now on to the #FullRepeal battle and other issues I wish my congressman, Bill Posey, would go on record with, filled with solutions like Senator Mike Lee’s video below:
