What Rating For Your Congress Critters?

Wonder no more as far as their following what the US Constitution would have them do. The New American has finished the work for you and all you have to do is access their information.

You will find much more to gag from if you plink around the site.  New Mexico just can’t win for losing, but there is some solace in knowing there are state legislators representing other states scoring lower than our “Banana Republic.”

SENATE MUST ACT, WHITE HOUSE MUST STOP PLAYING GAMES

ALBUQUERQUE – As the government shutdown continues, the Obama administration says it won’t negotiate with Republicans. This weekend, the White House told The Wall Street Journal, “we are winning,” and that “it really doesn’t matter to us” how long the shutdown lasts. (See article here: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303492504579113781436540284.html)
 
“President Obama’s stubborn political games are absurd, and as he refuses to negotiate for the good of Americans, the government remains shutdown,” said RPNM Chairman John Billingsley. “Republicans in the House of Representatives have shown a great willingness to find common ground and have continued to bring new proposals to the table; yet, Democrats are childishly refusing to negotiate at all.”
 
The House of Representatives passed multiple bills to avert a shutdown—all of which were refused by the Democrat-controlled Senate. The House has also passed numerous other measures over the last few days to fund critical services, including cancer research, veterans’ benefits, National Guard and Reserve paychecks, low-income women and children nutrition assistance, emergency and disaster recovery, reopening of national parks, and back-pay for furloughed employees.
 
“Despite the efforts, hard work and leadership of those in the House, Senate Democrats are blindly sticking to the failed leadership of President Obama,” continued Billingsley. “As Speaker of the House John Boehner said: ‘this isn’t some damn game.’ This is an issue of getting the U.S. government back up and running, and it is time for Democrats in the Senate and the White House to take this situation seriously, instead of refusing negotiations or joint conferences. The House is simply asking for a conference to sit down and have a discussion and to reopen the government. It all starts with simple discussions, and we commend the leaders in the House who are actively working for the good of all Americans.”

Syrian involvement: tied to decreasing OPEC dependence, increasing USA independence

Syrian involvement: tied to decreasing OPEC dependence, increasing USA independence

Following Tuesday’s Senate hearing and Wednesday’s House hearing on Syria, the political theater is beginning to sound like some level of US involvement will most likely happen over the chemical weapons attack. Wednesday afternoon, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted to authorize President Obama to use limited force against Syria. Lots of arm-twisting will be taking place in the next week. The pundits seem to think the Senate will vote with the President, but that the Republican-controlled House will be a tougher sell—despite the apparent support of Speaker John Boehner.

I am not writing to weigh in on whether or not we should have military action in Syria. I do energy. I have no military experience or expertise. What I do know is the economic impact of energy and politics. I can point out that with just talk of war, the price of oil has increased—even though Syria exports very little oil. (Of course, we know that the Administration wants higher gas prices.)

Since most people agree that there is no good option and disagree as to whether the cost of doing nothing is worse than the cost of doing something, let’s not debate that. Can we be pragmatic about this highly emotional issue? Ultimately, it’s political.

In his Washington Examiner column, “Why many Republicans won’t support Obama on Syria attack,” Byron York points out: “lawmakers might re-write the president’s draft authorization into something they can live with.” We know wrangling and politicking will occur. John McCain has flipped from opposition to support after two amendments were added. Other deals were probably made behind closed doors.

While York presents reasons why Republicans won’t support intervention in Syria, I am presenting amendments should they decide to “re-write” the authorization. Amendments, or horse-trading, are how things are done in DC—I’ll give you what you want, if you give me what I want.

Energy is a big part of the entire Middle East discussion. Many people believe that if the US were not dependent on OPEC oil, we’d have no involvement in the centuries-old tribal conflicts. Any vote for the president’s plan, should be tied to decreasing dependence, increasing independence—or, more accurately, North American oil security. Two specific policy directives are needed.

First, tie any authorization of military action in Syria to approval of the Keystone pipeline, which could cut our Persian Gulf imports in half by bringing an additional 830,000 barrels of oil per day into the US. Had the Keystone pipeline been approved when it was proposed, it would now be just months away from completion. Most Republicans, and many Democrats, support construction of the Keystone pipeline.

Second, allow access to domestic oil-and-gas resources and expedite drilling permits on federal lands. The Energy Information Administration reports that, in 2012, total US oil production was up by 15 percent, over the 2011 number, because of rapid growth of tight oil from reserves on private lands. However, sales of crude oil from federal lands decreased 5 percent. The 2012 figures continue a downward trend.

In July, the House Natural Resources Committee approved three bills to expand American onshore energy production. HR 1965 and HR 1394 specifically address the government hurdles and red tape that block and delay development, the elimination of unnecessary delays, and reforming the process for energy permitting.

In a press release about the committee’s passage of the bills, Chairman Doc Hastings said: “Energy production on federal lands is one of our best opportunities for job creation and energy security, but time and time again the Obama Administration delays and blocks these opportunities. Federal oil-and-natural gas production has declined since President Obama took office, but these bills would help reverse that trend.”

Doug Lamborn, Chairman of the Energy and Mineral Resources Subcommittee, added: “In recent years we have seen a boom in energy jobs and economic growth on state and private lands. I believe the only reason we haven’t seen that same dynamic growth on federal lands is because of excess regulations.”

The combination of approving the Keystone pipeline and passing HR 1965 and HR 1394 would go a long way toward weaning American off of Middle Eastern oil and both should be tied to any authorization of the use of American military force in Syria.

Stranger Than Fiction: Which It Might Be

A possible border-line evangelical organization, the Evangelical
Immigration Table (EIT) has come out in support of the immigration bill
bouncing around in the Senate.  That is to say, the organization may not
exist, unless you count an organization covered up by a pile of bull
butter to be a legitimate organization.

Here is the quoted opening paragraph from a Breitbart article:

Late last week, The Huffington Post reported
that the Evangelical Immigration Table, a coalition of evangelicals supporting the Senate immigration bill, had announced a $250,000 ad buy in support of the legislation. It was part of the Table’s 92-day Pray for Reform campaign that also included newspaper and radio ads.
Curiously, however, the Evangelical Immigration Table doesn’t legally exist as an incorporated political entity or non-profit organization.

The link posted just below will take you to the complete article.  Remember
we told you in a previous article the name does not always describe
correctly.  We believe this organization’s name is one of those entities
hiding its true agenda.

Stranger Than Fiction

As you follow the link above, you will see reference to The Immigration
Forum (TIF).  The board listing for TIF contains the names found at this
link:

Board Members TIF

Perhaps it does not trouble you the EIT and TIF are a little (or a lot) under the shade when it comes to their transparency.  If so, it would seem you are satisfied when facts are obscured.  Republicans and conservatives should support sensible and viable immigration reform, but you can’t get there when the peas are still in the pod.

ObamaCare May Still Be In Peril

There is a case working its way through the courts that challenges Obamacare, because the bill originated in the United States Senate instead of the United States House of Representatives as our Constitution requires.

Sessions Comments On Majority Relenting, Promising Senate Budget Mark-Up And Regular Order

 Sessions Comments On Majority Relenting, Promising Senate Budget Mark-Up And

Regular Order

 “I have repeatedly and emphatically called for an end to the Senate Democrats’ brazen legal defiance in this time of national fiscal emergency… To compel Senate action I have introduced legislation, blocked recess, and encouraged the use of the debt ceiling as leverage. Now, with their pay threatened, and long-simmering public anger growing, Senate Democrats have suddenly seen the light. Even just a few days ago, they were not willing to commit to doing a budget.”

 WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee, issued the following statement today in response to the announcement that the Committee would begin work on what would be the Senate’s first budget resolution since 2009:

“I am gratified that Chairman Murray has announced that the Senate majority has relented and will offer its first budget in four years. Majority Leader Reid had previously said it would be ‘foolish’ to do a budget and his party cancelled the legally required Senate mark-up in 2011 and 2012—even after former Chairman Conrad had explicitly promised to bring up a budget in committee. I have repeatedly and emphatically called for an end to the Senate Democrats’ brazen legal defiance in this time of national fiscal emergency. I was frankly stunned that our new Chairman would say that Republicans ‘have time and again pulled budget negotiations out of the Budget Committees,’ when Senate Democrats alone control whether committee meetings occur. They alone decided to cancel them. The House, on the other hand, met its legal obligations.

To compel Senate action I have introduced legislation, blocked recess, and encouraged the use of the debt ceiling as leverage. Now, with their pay threatened, and long-simmering public anger growing, Senate Democrats have suddenly seen the light. Even just a few days ago, they were not willing to commit to doing a budget. The sooner the majority allows the budget process to move forward, the sooner meaningful debate can occur and the sooner the Senate can at last meet its legal and moral obligations. Secret meetings are an affront to popular democracy.

The way forward is for the House and the Senate to both lay out long-term financial plans and present them to the American people. In the past, Democrats refused to do so for political reasons, believing it better to attack the House while having no plan to present, explain, or defend.

Additionally, the Congressional Budget Office will present Congress with a new baseline on February 4, 2013. This baseline will reveal how much deficit reduction is needed to balance the budget in 10 years. I stand ready to immediately work with Chairman Murray on a budget in committee to meet this target by April 1st.

An honest evaluation of our debt course does not allow for gimmicks or other misleading maneuvers. For instance, when we talk about producing a balanced budget we mean exactly that: a budget that results in no deficit. We do not mean achieving ‘primary balance’ or a budget with a ‘balanced approach.’ Further, such gimmicks as counting phony reductions in war spending or double-counting Medicare revenues cannot be accepted as a part of any honest financial plan.

It certainly won’t be easy to put this nation on a sound financial course, but it is essential. Needed fiscal changes will not only prevent an economic nightmare but they will reduce growing poverty, dependency, and joblessness and help more Americans live free and prosperous lives. Republicans are eager to work on this important endeavor and look forward to the commencement of committee activity.

[NOTE: Although no committee activity has yet been scheduled, the legal deadline for the Budget Committee to complete its work on a budget resolution is April 1.]

Sessions: Senate Dem Majority ‘Deliberate And Determined’ To Avoid Tough Budget Votes

The fact is it’s now three years—three years—into the execution of a deliberate and determined policy by the Democratic leadership of the United States Senate to avoid responsibility for the financial future of America. It’s not acceptable for the Senate leadership to not face up to the challenge of our time…

 

Is it really okay to wait until after the election to vote? Is that what the American expect of us? Are they satisfied that we say, ‘Oh, we can’t take votes close to an election. That might be tough. We don’t want to do that’? I don’t think so.”
