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.

State of the Union? Nothing socialism or the Messiah can't fix!

Let’s start with the good part of President Obama’s State of the Union speech last night, since that’s a much shorter task: He said his administration has “identified $2 trillion in savings over the next decade.” (A decent start against the $3.25 trillion he just spent in one single piece of legislation, but just wait until he tries to gore the sacred cows of members of Congress.)

Green is the New Red

BY Andrew Roth

The Club for Growth recently created an email list for conservative groups to coordinate their efforts on policy matters. One of those policies is the tax-hiking, over-regulating, lobbyist-loving, Al Gore-ring-kissing Lieberman-Warner Climate bill currently being debated on in the Senate. It's basically the Kyoto Treaty on steroids.

The Gospel of Gore

BY Amanda Carpenter

If Al Gore wore a high-collared black suit instead of a polo shirt and jeans to the Washington, D.C. Live Earth concert, he might have been mistaken for a preacher. He gave a brief sermon Saturday, July 7 on global warming with a solemn opening. “Today we are gathered on all seven continents and eight giant concerts and in 10,000 other gatherings, many as large as this one, two billion people, we are gathered, with one message.”
