FULL Repeal is Tax Reform!

This is going to be brief because seriously, I am so sick of the Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell lies regarding so many things that I could spit. 

Mark Sandford was right. 

Mike Lee was right. 

Seven years of promises and now the Republican Progressives are equally as corrupt as any Democrat Progressive when it comes to looking out for the taxpayers. And so are the alleged Moderates. 

There is no stinking thing as a Moderate. A Moderate is also a Progressive. 

Spit. 

Bottom line, I cannot read one more report about anything to do with whatever the current bill is being promoted or set out there to keep, even partially, ObamacareHELL.

The principle of good governance depends on leaders who understand choice and accountability, the law of the harvest – meaning bad things happen to good people but when looked at with the law of abundance, there is enough to go around IF the government gets out of the way.  

Everyone knows the government does not create wealth nor can it compel a spirit of charity or benevolence, or altruism as the secularists call it. 

Government gives and takes money away. It takes from some to give to others. That is not charity. That is forced redistribution of wealth and that is neither freedom nor benevolence. 

Real tax reform begins with Full Repeal of the Obamacare Tax. There cannot be any bailouts. And Congress needs to get a grip on itself. Congress must rise up to CUT, CAP and BALANCE THE BUDGET if real tax reform is to have any effect. Congressional addiction to living out of taxpayer pockets must end.

Best news of the day: JIM is BACK!

This was the biggest ray of sunshine as the McCONnell MTP charade presses forward. Jim DeMint is back and back in the best way possible. 

And not a moment too soon! 

Earlier today the Nancy Pelosi Democrats in the Senate voted to advance their vicious attacks in support of #ObamacareHell. 

Millions of taxpayers are absolutely repulsed and disgusted. Millions in the middle class are terrified at having lost their healthcare plans and being forced into Progressive’s #SinglePayerHell.
 
Unfortunately, the cowardly Progressives never regret trading American lives for an Obamacare victory. They just keep on pretending government is the fix when Obamacare is only good for the rich, the well-connected and a handful of wealthy power brokers, like Nancy Pelosi. 
 
If there was ever a time for you to join the fight for Full Repeal — it’s now. Now is the time to tell the Senate: We Want Full Repeal of Obamacare Hell. It is high time to end the Pelosi-Progressive conflict. 
 
By midnight Wednesday, July 26th, I need 3,000 grassroots Constitutional  Conservatives to stand with me.
 
Can I count on you to rush $1 to support Mike Lee for Senate and Chris Herrod for Congress until the Conservative Partnership Institute has a donation page up and running?  

Or donate here to directly help a vetted Constitutional Conservative of your choice.

Part 3: My takeaway from Mike Lee

The more Progressive Republicans pushback against Mike Lee for his ability and willingness to stand for the Forgotten Men and Women in America, the more I believe in him. Therefore, to Senator Orrin Hatch: Get Out of the Way. I will not be forgotten and that is why I stand with Mike Lee. By the way Orrin, I hit back too, you Republican Progressive. (Spit)

To help Senator Hatch see how shortsighted he is when it comes to seeing things as they really are just go to the Original Source, Mike Lee:

And now, for Senator Hatch’s benefit, let us lead off with a fantastic question from the Glenn Beck interview:

Why have Senate Republicans not yet voted on that which they promised for seven years they would enact if given the opportunity? Why have they not yet voted even on the 2015 version of the repeal bill.

You cannot accuse someone who wants us to do simply that which we promised, of wrecking the effort to do that which we promised, when that person — me — is simply advocating for us to do what we said we would do. That’s all we’re asking here. It’s not too much to ask, nor is it something that the American people should be asked to back away from.

  • We’ve been asked to settle over and over and over again as Americans.
  • ...it’s not time to settle.
  • ...time to expect more.
  • …time for us to keep our word.

Are you listening, Orrin? Remember when you first ran for the senate, in Utah? I do. What have you become? 

Mike Lee continues to frame the debate stating: 

  • Help is coming, I hope…..when we can pass something that will get rid of the federal government’s oppressive reach.
  • [to] solve all of our problems through the federal government….when we try to pretend that we can do that, we end up making things worse.
  • It ends up being really good for the rich and the well-connected…handful of big wealthy corporations and power brokers ….and a few other major cities will do really well…But everyone else tends to suffer.

Are you listening, Orrin? The fact is that Mike Lee is not fighting for dominance. Mike Lee is a far more tempered individual than you are, in my ever to be humble opinion.  

  • the best relief we can provide… is to get Washington out of your way so that you can do what you do best and so that people will compete to provide health care services to you.

So there it is. Free Market Healthcare. Mike Lee gets it. He is not confused. He fully understands that Americans, the ones who put the GOP in office, want to be free to choose. And then BOOM! Mike Lee seals his argument again (my emphasis added): 

“The problem with this is that the one thing that always has united us has been repeal. And that’s what we should have done at the outset.

There never has been widespread agreement among Republicans on what should come next. So we should start with what unites us.

Repeal has united us for several years.

Repeal needs to be the message right now. And repeal is the one thing we can achieve.”

There you have it Senator Hatch. Basta and back off dude. You can tell all of your little anonymous Republican Progressives the same thing, especially those who will not stand behind full repeal.

Part 2: My takeaway from Mike Lee

Part 1 of my takeaway here. Now on to the more of the Mike Lee – Glenn Beck conversation: 

  • once we get on to the bill, it becomes very, very difficult to change it

Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 11.03.10 AMNow, that point brings me to something I read by The Editors in the Wall Street Journal that, frankly, makes me want to spit at the editorial. The fact is Mike Lee clearly explains the process and why going after FULL Repeal is one of those Might As Well‘s. (Ten points to Katie, a fellow Sentinel, for her concise statement in rebuttal. The Editors article is indeed, crap.)

Mike Lee continues: 

“Now, I’m still convinced that we can pass something. I’m still convinced that we could pass either some variation of this bill, with some changes made to it. Changes that I believe would be relatively easy to make. Or alternatively, that we could get on to a full repeal and just pass that.”

So there it is. Just pass that. Full Repeal.

  • …the further we depart from what we’ve been promising
  • …what every Republican who has campaigned for any federal office
  • all campaigned on one consistent theme: Repeal Obamacare.
  • make sure that we’re faithful to that promise.

Boom WSJ, The Editors. Consider that a Gibbs Slap for the backs of your heads. 

But wait! There is more to the Mike Lee persuasion method! And perhaps this is why WSJ, The Editors, are attacking the most measured thinking man for his methods.

  • we can repeal it with 51 votes.
  • we can repeal at least two-thirds of it with 51 votes
  • we got that through the parliamentary and under this reconciliation measure in 2015.

Ahhhh and now the kicker: 

“I also believe we could add to that one and get in some additional features, the title one health care regulations. At least in part, it could be added to those and get those repealed.

As to whether we can get the votes, there are some who are expressing skepticism about that. But, Glenn, I’m unwilling to assume that we can’t get there just because some moderates don’t like it.

Music to my ears: Unwilling to assume just because some moderates don’t like it. Again. Another Gibbs Slap for The Editors. Mike Lee has that never quit attitude. He is never out of the fight for the Forgotten Man. 

Oh wait! There is more! But look! It is the House Freedom Caucus, not the Senate but hey, look who is feeling inspired because ONE MAN stands for something. 

This is where I end this piece with a new hashtag: 

#MikeLeeForSenateMajorityLeader.

…to be continued …

Part 1: My takeaway from Mike Lee

The other day Mike Lee was on Glenn Beck’s Radio Program. Today I want to pull out some phrasing that stuck with me from the conversation and why the fight to hold our ground for FULL REPEAL matters more than ever.

  •  — this is the amendment that would have allowed people on the exchange to offer an insurance policy that a consumer would want to buy and an insurer would want to offer,
  • They watered that down to say…
  • … it wouldn’t do so nearly as much as it would if you just adopted the full consumer freedom amendment, as we have negotiated it.
  • …it’s moved further to the left. They have now gotten rid of about half...
  • They’ve added a bunch of other stuff to it that I have questions about, including $45 billion to be spent in some unknown way,… 
  • they’ve watered down this key provision …. this thing just keeps moving to the left

Yep. Mike Lee speaks the words of the Forgotten Man. He addresses the reason why many of us are so mad we could spit! So why Hugh Hewitt does not understand that the Forgotten Man is sick and tired of the Progressive Republicans telling us we have to move forward in increments is beyond me. 

INCREMENTS do not lie. We are being moved further to the left so thank God Mike Lee knows how to stand for something. 

  • This bill is really good to the insurance industry.
  • … some provisions that someone would describe as bailouts.
  • …contains all kinds of relief for this or for that kind of interest.

Screen Shot 2017-07-19 at 7.53.55 PM

Okay. Does Hugh Hewitt think those kinds of increments are better than Obamacare? And does Hugh think the GOP should lockstep blindly to his incremental drumming? (Ten points to Chris Lloyd for calling HH out!)

Moving on. Mike Lee says and I quote it entirely: 

“The person it leaves out is the forgotten man, the forgotten woman, the middle class American who is struggling to get by, who is seeing health care premiums hike over and over and over again, even as deductibles have skyrocketed and coverage has become less pervasive. And this bill doesn’t provide enough relief to them. I want to make sure that the forgotten man and the forgotten woman in America are forgotten no more. And that we get Washington, DC, out of their way.” 

Yes. That is why I stand with Mike Lee. He is steeped in the knowledge that power comes from principles of self-reliance through the value of work and freedom to choose those things that give us, the taxpaying middle class, the unalienable right to pursue life, liberty and happiness.

Mike Lee: Rock Solid, Loyal Republican

Mike Lee is every bit as honorable as his remarkable father was and that is evidenced in Mike’s principled stand on Full Repeal. Mike remains unwavering and faithful to his constituents. Always in the fight for liberty, he consistently stands against those who support subverting unalienable rights afforded every American.

I listened to Mike on Glenn Beck’s radio program today. Mike eloquently framed the debate to press forward with full repeal. It is the the same debate that must be made over and over and over again until the liars in the House and the Senate are fully exposed in an up-or-down-roll call-vote for the record. 

FRAME THE DEBATE WITH MIKE LEE: Be Rock Solid 
GREAT INSIGHT HERE: 
TAKE ACTION: Stand with Mike Lee on Full Repeal

Republican Senators Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia have signaled that they are no-go’s on the GOP’s backup proposal, which entails passing the same “clean” repeal bill approved by the upper chamber in late 2015 — a bill Capito and Murkowskivoted yes on at the time. (Susan Collins did vote no in 2015.)

In addition, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and Rob Portman of Ohio have raised questions about the repeal legislation. Both men votedyes on a repeal in 2015.

McConnell still says he will go forward with a repeal vote, even if it fails…
