Sen. Ted Cruz offers to donate salary to charity if Democrats shut down government

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, announced today he will donate his Senate salary to charity salary to charity for each day Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid forces a government shutdown.

From Cruz's website:
 
"Harry Reid should not force a government shutdown. I hope that Reid stops refusing to negotiate and works with the House to avoid a government shutdown, and, at the same time, prevent the enormous harms that Obamacare is inflicting on the American people.
"If, however, Harry Reid forces a government shutdown, I intend to donate my salary to charity for each day the government is shut down. Elected leaders should not be treated better than the American people, which is precisely why hardworking Americans deserve the same Obamacare exception that President Obama has already granted Members of Congress."

Larry Elder: Democratic Party loves ill-informed voters

Columnist Larry Elder on how the Democratic Party relies on low-information voters for support:
Democrats win because their narrative works on an emotional level — us against them. Bad, selfish people — known as Republicans — want to stop the good and the decent — known as Democrats — from their right to health care, right to a job, right to a job with a "livable wage" and the right to not only enjoy one’s own lifestyle but to brand critics as racists, sexists or homophobes.

Record 46.5 million Americans living in poverty under Obama

From Hope Yen of the Associated Press:
The nation's poverty rate remained stuck at 15 percent last year despite America's slowly reviving economy, a discouraging lack of improvement for the record 46.5 million poor and an unwelcome benchmark for President Barack Obama's recovery plans.

More than 1 in 7 Americans were living in poverty, not statistically different from the 46.2 million of 2011 and the sixth straight year the rate had failed to improve, the Census Bureau reported Tuesday. Median income for the nation's households was $51,017, also unchanged from the previous year after two consecutive annual declines, while the share of people without health insurance did improve but only a bit, from 15.7 percent to 15.4 percent.

Democrat Sen. Bob Casey Jr. wants drivers to pay higher gas tax

Pennsylvania's Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Casey Jr. thinks drivers are not paying enough at the pump. (Gas prices have doubled since Casey's pal Barack Obama took office).

Casey is proposing a hike in the federal gas tax, not necessarily to fix roads and bridges but to pump more money into big city public transit authorities to keep paying high wages to those unionized bus drivers and mechanics.

Casey made his plea for higher taxes at a press event flanked by the general manager of SEPTA, the always financially-strapped Philadelphia transit authority, and Montgomery County Commissioner Josh Shapiro, another tax-and-spend liberal who wants to be governor of Pennsylvania some day.
Casey, flanked by SEPTA general manager Joseph Casey and Montgomery County Commissioner Josh Shapiro, said transit agencies and local transportation planners need to know how much money to expect and when to expect it.

ObamaCare’s Desperate Defenders

You can put all the lipstick you want on a pig, but it's still a pig. Obamacare is more unpopular today that it was three years ago when Democrats shoved down the nation's throat. Voters can thank Congressional Democrats in 2014 by voting all of them out of office.

Obama Wants Inclusion of 'Social and Behavioral' Data in Health Records

It's not about health care, it's about control of the people by a central government.

Our worst nightmares will come true when Obama takes controls of the health system.

Have we not learned anything about Obama? He has used the IRS and the NSA to harass and spy on Americans who disagree with him. It's only the beginning.

From The Washington Free Beacon:
Health care experts say the proposal raises additional privacy concerns over Americans' personal health information, on top of worries that the Obamacare "data hub" could lead to abuse by bureaucrats and identify theft.
Ronald Reagan warned us about the coming of a tyrant like Obama:
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

Pa. Congressmen Still Skeptical of Obama Syria Policy

Here's what two Southeastern Pennsylvania members of Congress had to say about President Obama's muddled Syria policy following Obama's Tuesday address:

From Rep. Joe Pitts, R-16th Dist.:
"While I’ve listened closely to the President and his advisors, I do not support using military action in Syria. Had the President pushed for a vote on authorization this week, I would have voted no. My main concern is that we could make matters worse, potentially harming innocent lives and possibly sparking a regional war. We should certainly be skeptical of the new Russian proposal, but we must investigate all potential diplomatic efforts to eliminate Syrian chemical weapons. We must not forget that the Russians have been blocking efforts in the United Nations and supplying the regime with weapons."

From Rep. Jim Gerlach, R-6th Dist.:
"I am hopeful that the President's pivot to diplomacy will succeed in stopping future chemical weapons attacks in Syria and that our country will not be forced to put the brave men and women of our military in harm's way.  The President’s speech still leaves many questions unanswered about the scope, justification, and necessity for U.S. military involvement in the Syrian conflict.  The President may have called a timeout, but I'm still unconvinced that the Administration has an effective game plan for Syria.  Nothing I heard from the President tonight has changed my opposition to our military involvement in Syria."
