The RINO Says: I’m with Nancy on amnesty

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is targeting a list of 30 specific House Republicans to enlist for her amnesty crusade. Some of the targets she doesn’t stand a chance in hell of recruiting — Darrell Issa, for example — but others — like Paul Ryan and Renee Ellmers, who has called critics of her views “ignorant” — will be easier to snag.

One thing’s for certain: This will definitely weed out the RINOs.

Oversight member on Lois Lerner: ‘Now I see why IRS is scared to give up emails’

10224714News broke Wednesday that former IRS official Lois Lerner had been in contact with the Department of Justice about criminally prosecuting tax-exempt groups not two days before admitting to unfairly scrutinizing conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status. Unsurprisingly, members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform have had a lot to say about the revelation:

One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight.

“The release of new documents underscores the political nature of IRS Tea Party targeting and the extent to which supposed apolitical officials took direction from elected Democrats,” Oversight chairman Rep. Darrell Issa said in a statement. “These e-mails are part of an overwhelming body of evidence that political pressure from prominent Democrats led to the targeting of Americans for their political beliefs.”

“Now I see why the IRS is scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails,” said Oversight Economic Growth subcommittee chairman Rep. Jim Jordan.

“Not only do these e-mails further prove the coordination among the IRS, the Federal Election Commission (FEC), the Justice Department and committee Democrats to target conservatives, they also show that had our committee not requested the Inspector General’s investigation when we did, Eric Holder’s politicized Justice Department would likely have been leveling trumped up criminal charges against Tea Party groups to intimidate them from exercising their Constitutional rights,” Jordan said.

It’s clearer than ever that Lerner must be made to testify. She’s nearly been caught red-handed; she just hasn’t admitted it yet.

Dozens of Alabaman widows dropped from health care thanks to Obamacare

r620-152cdc21595c05e82064533fdc48fcfeWhile the Obama administration continues to tout the success of Obamacare from Capitol Hill, Americans across the country are experiencing the negative affects. In Alabama, over two dozen widows have been dropped from their health insurance plans thanks to the law:

“More than two dozen widows who were married to retired Madison county employees, lost their health insurance coverage earlier this year. And now one commissioner says it’s time to give it back to them. The change was sparked by the new federal health care law, but whether or not coverage can actually be restored really isn’t clear,” said the anchor.

Says the reporter, “Madison county commissioner Roger Jones says no one realized just how much the new federal health care law would change things, especially for the spouses of some of his former employees.”

Many of these widows live off of low fixed incomes or Social Security and need health insurance. They had been previously covered under Madison county’s self-insured health plan, but the program was forced to be abandoned when officials learned that Obamacare regulations would pile on an extra $25 million per year. Alabama is the sixth-poorest state in the country.
