GOP Leaders Broke Their Pledge to America

posted by Leave a Comment

jackassephant-258x300When House Republicans penned their Pledge to America in 2010, they convinced American voters they would advance a conservative agenda if they regained control of the House that year. Four years later, what promises have they actually delivered?  ObamaCare is still intact, our national debt has grown by $3 trillion, and Republicans have capitulated to Democrats on every issue from the debt ceiling to the budget. Republican leaders in both the House and the Senate have failed conservatives and have failed to keep their Pledge to America.  Let’s examine how the GOP pledge has fallen flat.  Repeal the Costly Health Care Takeover of 2010 – Despite countless meaningless votes to repeal ObamaCare, Republican leaders had an actual chance to undo the disastrous healthcare law in 2013 by refusing to fund ObamaCare. Instead of putting their words into action, GOP Leaders in the House and Senate caved to Democrats, refused to fight, and allowed funding for ObamaCare to pass.  Rein in the Red Tape Factory; Rein in Government Waste and Duplication – In 2013, a Congressional Research Service report showed the number of federal rules actually increased the year after the House GOP made their Pledge to America. In 2012, $23.5 billion in new regulatory costs were caused by 25 new rulemakings. I’d call that the opposite of reining in red tape and weeding out waste.  Act Immediately to Reduce Spending; Make it Easier to Cut Spending; Cut Congress’ Budget; Cut Government Spending to Pre-Stimulus, Pre-Bailout Levels – Republican leaders can play all the games they want with spending cuts, like voting for cuts they know will never be enacted, but they can’t argue they kept these promises when our national debt skyrocketed from $14 trillion in January 2011 when the GOP regained the House to over $17 trillion now.  Reform the Budget Process – When both chambers of Congress haven’t agreed on a budget since before the iPad existed (as pointed out by House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy himself) and our government has been operating off of continuing resolutions, the only reform that’s happening is for the worst. Even the newest budget from House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is an utter disaster – increasing spending and caving on critical issues. Republicans even failed to publish the bad budget deal online at least three days before voting on it despite their pledge to do so.  The list of broken pledges goes on and on.  There was the promise to give small business a tax deduction, which the House passed but Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell killed in a fiscal cliff deal with Democrats.  Despite voting to repeal ObamaCare and the employer mandate 50 times, the GOP never put any serious weight behind their promise to “repeal job-killing small business mandates.”  Republicans have failed to limit legislation to single issues, failed to reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and have repeatedly caved to Democrats on raising the debt ceiling.  Their pledge to “end TARP once and for all” was a moot point, as PolitiFact points out since all of the money that could have been loaned under the program was already gone by the time the House acted on repealing it.  And despite pledging to “permanently prohibit taxpayer funding of abortion,” they did not stop federal funding for Planned Parenthood.  While the Pledge to America may have originated in the House, its broken promises are indicative of the broader culture of lies and deception in Washington and the failure by both the House and Senate GOP leadership to keep the very promises that got them elected.     In 2010, the GOP also picked up six seats from Democrats in the Senate. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell described the Republican Senate victories as Americans having “buyers’ remorse” over the state of affairs in Washington. Fast forward four years and it appears Senator McConnell was foreshadowing the remorse Americans would have for him.  McConnell once promised to repeal ObamaCare, rein in government, and stand up to Obama’s assault on our economy. Now the only thing he’s promising to do is “crush” conservative grassroots. We should have known all along he would sell out when it came time to fight.  This cycle of saying one thing to voters at home and then doing the opposite in Washington must end. Republican leaders in both chambers of Congress are failing us.  Here’s a pledge Americans can count on – we can have the leaders we deserve in Congress. We just have to dump the current ones. They failed to keep their Pledge to America and now it’s time for them to go.

SC Tea Party Leader: ‘Unfortunate’ Lindsey Graham Dismisses Grassroots

posted by Leave a Comment

Not exactly seeing eye to eye!Joe Dugan, the Executive Producer of the South Carolina Tea Party Convention appeared on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 and said 2014 will be an even bigger year for the movement than 2010, the year which put the Tea Party on the map and gave Republicans back the House of Representatives in an historic midterm election year.

Dugan told host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, “2010 was a firecracker. 2014 is going to be an explosion.”

He said the Tea Party has always been right about the perils of Obamacare. He said when Americans get “hit in the pocketbook on Obamacare,” the Tea Party will get even more credibility on health carearrow-10x10.png, which will make the movement gain more credibility on other issues such as the national debt. He said the impact will be felt at the ballot box.

WATCH High School Student Take Down Obama’s Next Government Takeover

Horry county Against Common CoreSouth Carolina voluntarily adopted Common Core — K-12 education standards in math, reading and language arts. The standards outline what students should know and know how to do at every grade level. Noticing the high number of students reaching college without basic skills, governors and state school superintendents across the nation decided to create Common Core. Critics of Common Core, including state schools Superintendent Mick Zais, say the standards were adopted hastily by a select few and are a “one-size-fits-all solution that won’t serve students well.”

South Carolina legislators fighting Common Core: Reps. Eric Bedingfield, R-Greenville; Mike Burns, R-Greenville; Bill Chumley, R-Spartanburg; Heather Crawford, R-Horry; William Crosby, R-Charleston; Craig Gagnon, R-Abbeville; Stephen Goldfinch, R-Georgetown; Dwight Loftis, R-Greenville; Samuel Rivers, R-Berkeley; Mark Willis, R-Greenville; and Donna Wood, R-Spartanburg. Also Sens. Lee Bright, R-Spartanburg, Kevin Bryant, R-Anderson; and Larry Grooms, R-Berkeley.
