Four Republican Senators Voted for Euro-TARP

Over the past three years, President Obama has spent billions of dollars bailing out big banks, insurance giants and auto companies. These massive programs have not only cost American taxpayers dearly, but have sent the message that in the future poorly-run companies will be rescued from their failures. But that’s only the beginning—now Obama wants to bailout failing countries. Using the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Obama plans to put American taxpayers on the hook for a second 145 billion dollar rescue package for Greece.

How to Make the Senate Vote on Full Obamacare Repeal

Tomorrow, the House will vote on a bill to repeal the government takeover of health care.  After it passes, the bill will go over to the Senate.  The conventional wisdom is that it will die there.  But don't start the funeral parade too soon.  There is way to force a Senate vote on the House repeal bill.

Cap and Trade Energy Tax Victories

President Obama's budget proposal working itself through Congress right now includes funding from a $600 billion cap and trade energy tax.  The plan would place a limit on the amount of carbon emissions that a firm is allowed to produce.  They can then sell their rights to carbon to other companies that wish to exceed their limit.  Cap and trade increases energy costs by restricting output and raising costs to producers.

Reconciliation, What Is It?

If you've been paying attention to what's going on in Washington recently, you've probably heard the word "reconciliation".  What is it?  It's a legislative process intended to allow a budget bill to be considered without filibuster.  In the Senate, it restricts debate to 20 hours and amendments are limited.  Without the option of filibuster, a bill in the Senate would only require 51 votes to pass.  A super majority of 60 votes is required to end a filibuster to move legislation normally.
