by Steve MacDonald June 5, 2018

The party of progress just got their summer vacation canceled due to their all-out effort to prevent progress.

Priority Number One for The Right Should Be…

by Steve MacDonald March 7, 2018

The Omnibus is more of the same (bonus spending edition) after an election where we hoped for better but as I noted here, let Trump play his hand out on the budget and just let that bitch go. We have bigger problems that need our attention. Problems that if ignored will put an abrupt end […]

by Skip June 26, 2016

From the Union Leader: Kuster said Congress must act to expand background checks for gun sales at shows and online, and if a suspected terrorist is considered too dangerous to fly, they should not be able to buy a gun. No, it is NOT that “they should not be able to buy a gun” – […]

The Party Of Fiscal Discipline, Eh, Kelly?

by Mike November 2, 2015

Into my mailbox this morning popped confirmation of what I’d heard during the weekend – not only can’t the GOP muster a quorum to resist Obama’s spending plans, but Mitch McConnell and his trusted lieutenants like ‘our’ Kelly Ayotte led the charge for piling up debt faster than ever!!

Hoeven, Manchin, Reach For 67 On Keystone

by Mike January 13, 2015

BIPARTISANSHIP! “Coal Senator”, Joe Manchin (D, WV) and Oil Patch Senator John Hoeven (R, ND) are co-sponsors of the Keystone Pipeline bill in the senate, and they already have 63 votes lined up to pass it. It also seems as though Mitch McConnell’s collegial approach may pay dividends, at least in this case, by allowing […]

GOP Civil War: Let me remind Mitch McConnell of something about “grown-ups”

by Skip November 8, 2013

In a backhanded slice against the TEA Party, MINORITY leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell said: …The victory of a more electable Republican, is significant, Mr. McConnell says. To govern, parties must win. To win, parties must “run candidates that don’t scare the general public, [and] convey the impression that we could actually be responsible […]

[Updated] Why You Should Contact Senator Mitch McConnell

by Steve MacDonald November 15, 2010

If all they wanted to do is ensure that the federal dollars we send to DC provided some equal value to the state that pays them they would act diligently to ensure that the Federal government did not take more than it needed for its few and limited responsibilities. (No one will ever accuse a New Hampshire Democrat of that.)
