Much like the narrative used before, during, and after passage of the bill that bears her name, Lilly Ledbetter Lied. Ms. Ledbetter has since repeatedly claimed that she only learned she was paid less than her male co-workers at the end of her career,4 and then belatedly filed an EEOC complaint. In her testimony before […]

Something NH Senator Jeanne Shaheen Is Actually Good At

by Steve MacDonald April 2, 2014
Thumbnail image for Something NH Senator Jeanne Shaheen Is Actually Good At

Democrat promises are not much different from everyone elses lies.  Yes, ObamaCare is the biggest example, and there is Benghazi, among others.  But I’m more interested in this whole income (in)equality thing. Remember the Lilly Ledbetter act?  Carol Shea-Porter and Jeanne Shaheen promoted this legislation as the solution to workplace wage equality.  The DCCC even […]

March 23rd was ObamaCare’s 4th Birthday.   No fanfare?  No celebrations?  No parades?  No Birthday cake? Taking Skip’s lead, I checked the NH Federal delegation House and Senate Web Sites for Jeanne Shaheen, Carol Shea-Porter, and Ann Kuster.  There were no press releases, no statements, not even a tweet about the 4th anniversary of the glorious […]

Guess who from NH has dropped Obamacare from their campaign site?

by Skip March 24, 2014

Big Government: Rep. Julia Brownley (D-CA), a first-term representative whose district includes parts of Ventura County, Simi Valley and the San Fernando Valley, has apparently removed her support for Obamacare from her campaign website. As recently as late February (see cached image above), Rep. Brownley claimed that the “Affordable Care Act…made some much needed improvements […]

It’s not what you think.  Well, maybe it is. c/o John Hinderaker at Powerline, on Sheila Jackson Lee.  This is classic Lee: Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority — the Republicans, my chairman and others — for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion […]

No, they DIDN’T take it off the table – they just gave them ANOTHER club

by Skip March 6, 2014

This will be the gift that will keep on giving – the Kiss of Death, that is.  To the Republicans, that is.  They just didn’t realize it, all those Smart People in the NH State Senate with Rs after their names that voted to implement Obamacare’s Medicaid Expansion (even though they tried to call it […]

Carol-Ann Shea-Kuster Was Against It Before “She” Was For It

by Steve MacDonald March 6, 2014
Thumbnail image for Carol-Ann Shea-Kuster Was Against It Before “She” Was For It

Carol SEIU-Porter and Ann “Hide your Camera” Kuster are like tiny, little, interchangeable, cogs in the progressive DC machinery.  So it should be no surprise that with re-election coming up they are suddenly in favor of delaying the implementation of an important piece of “job creating” legislation that hard-working American families (children, seniors, single moms, […]

He’s got questions, I’ve got observations and answers

by Skip February 10, 2014

Sometimes, it’s easy and sometimes, there’s not much to work with.  But as I’ve said before, if Pindell is gonna ask, SOMEBODY has to answer……even if it is only me.  From last Friday’s Political Scoop: What did Andrew Hemingway’s camp make of Jeb Bradley’s comments on CloseUP that if Brown gets in the U.S. Senate […]

Ruh-Roh! No Democrat Money Left Over For House Races?

by Steve MacDonald January 30, 2014
Thumbnail image for Ruh-Roh! No Democrat Money Left Over For House Races?

There is an article up at Michael that talks about the concern among Democrat strategists that they can’t win the House and they could lose the Senate. They are.. .” dispirited about any chance of picking up the US House–that they’re writing off the latter and shoving all their chips (and cash) on the […]

Blogline of the Day – Government allows us to have a conscience?

by Skip December 11, 2013

“If the U.S. government can seize the power to force Christians to act against their consciences, what power can it be denied?”   This is in relationship to the both the employer mandate that forces them provide, in the now mandatory voluntary benefit of health insurance, those items that can lead up to the killing […]

US Congresswoman Annie Kuster – the gal version of Phil Hare (D-Il)?

by Skip December 11, 2013

Ah yes, that IS the comparison that is now being made: Kuster = Hare: (Hat tip, Independent Journal Review.) Kuster may not realize it yet, but she’s just become the Phil Hare of this cycle. Rep. Phil Hare, an Illinois Democrat, dismissed objections to Obamacare back in 2010 by quipping, “I don’t worry about the […]

So, Obama hates volunteer fire departments (of course, where’s the Union?)

by Skip December 9, 2013

From the Daily Mail (a UK paper that does a lot better on reporting edgy American news than most US papers): The Affordable Care Act forces companies with more than 50 workers to buy them all health insurance or pay hefty fines The IRS says volunteer firefighters are ‘employees,‘ even though the Department of Labor […]

Once again, the push to make companies simply another part of Progressive Government

by Skip December 2, 2013

As I said here, Obamacare is the Progressive capstone to force otherwise Free people to take care of others – not out of kindness but out of fear.  Progressives, being the incremental socialists they are, previously have pretty much co-opted what used to be genuinely charitable organizations (now called ‘social services organizations who pretty much  […]

One more company follows Obama mandated financial incentives – Liberals will howl in anger

by Skip November 21, 2013

As this company in Ohio, PSC Metals, decides to dump escort their 1,000 employees to the portal of Obamacare.  After all, isn’t that The Plan?  Isn’t that the Progressives’ on ramp for single payer, when 100% of our healthcare system becomes Nationalized (like the student loan program – how’s that working out fer you young’uns?).  […]

Thumbnail image for When It ‘Pays’ to Know People Will Lose Their Health Plan

Kirsten Gillibrand, Democrat Senator from New York, is on the record stating that everybody knew that people losing their insurance plans was a central premise of the ObamaCare Roll Out. So even though they had to pass it to find out what was in it everyone knew, including Obama, and Democrats, and the media, and […]

RAAAACISTS: Carol Shea-Porter and Jeanne Shaheen. They hate little kids & puppies too

by Skip November 14, 2013

After all, led by those that were once vociferously FOR Obamacare (and if not vociferous, certainly smarmy Schoolmarmish in the case of one of them), those Democrat women are now AGAINST it (funny, neither of look or sound like “Lurch” Kerry even after he’s plumped up his facial features).  And in opposing Obamacare for the […]

The Realities of DemocratCare…. or ‘They Don’t Call us “The Right!” For Nothing.’ Part XVII – Now, it gets Personal

by Skip November 7, 2013

I AM one of the 93 million employer insured employees that Obamacare has come for now that it has all but killed off the private insurance marketplace – something that absolutely delights folks like NH Congressmen Annie Custer, Carol Shea-Porter, and NH’s US Senator Jeanne Shaheen.  They want as little capitalism left as possible: Shaheen […]

“Still lying after all these years….” That would include Jeanne Shaheen, Carol Shea-Porter, and Annie Kuster

by Skip November 6, 2013

Those three would be NH’s own DEMOCRAT FEMALE CongressCritters – proving they can lie even better than Men (after all, females are supposed to do EVERY thing better than we Neanderthal men.  So that would include LYING, right?).  From the White House website (which I have screen scraped) : Remember, Obama and the Democrats still […]

Obamacare – Screwing over the people in the “middle”, making them insuranceless

by Skip November 1, 2013

The stories are going to come out hard and fast.  Sure, low income folks are going to get “such a deal”.  The dirty secret that Senator Jeanne Shaheen and CongressCritters Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter won’t outright amplify is that the only way that the Obamacare plans are “affordable” are the federal tax funded subsidies.  […]

Blaze Daily Beast columnist Kirsten Powers, who has been an Obamacare supporter, admitted on “The Kelly File” Thursday that her insurance premiums will nearly double from $160 per month to about $300 per month if she wants to keep the same deductible.

Who is supposed to be in charge here??

by Skip October 3, 2013

WE own it – not you!  WE own it – not Government.  You are MERELY the caretakers of our stuff – learn your place! We often show much deference to those that work in Government – and generally more to elected officials (I think more so the higher the office and the further away they […]

Saw this first over at The Blaze: Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) on Tuesday became one of the latest lawmakers to say he would be forgoing his congressional salary during the government shutdown, telling The Salt Lake Tribune he’s asking “that they hold my check until this is resolved.” Members of Congress’ pay is ensured even […]

The party that picks winners and losers as a matter of policy now claims that it will not pick winners and losers when it comes to funding the Government.   Here’s an idea.  Why not pass a budget every year to fund the government? I guess budgets are not fair, or something.  So lacking a budget, […]

From Seacoast Online – Letter to the Editor Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter’s op-ed last week left me incredulous that someone who has been in Congress four out of the last six years would point out deficiencies in today’s America as though it was not a reflection on her and her party. The Democrat Party has held […]

I blame Jeanne Shaheen – but what will Chuck do?

I guess I was prescient yesterday. Remember, before now US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, she was the NH State Senator who sponsored SB711 – that godawful bill of healthcare destruction that annhiliated the insurance carrier competition in NH.  From over two dozen companies vying for New Hampshirites’ business and dollars (and forcing them to provide better […]
