Mike Simpson's Latest Ad: An Exercise in Truth Avoidance

Congressman Mike Simpson, facing the reelection challenge of his career from fellow Republican Bryan Smith, has commenced running television ads touting his "conservative record". The advertisement, which was apparently not intended to be comical, is based on four key claims about Rep. Simpson’s record:

Resisting ObamaCare (and the Chamber of Commerce) in South Carolina

The South Carolina Senate is taking up an extraordinary bill this week, H 3101, that (with an amendment) would be a model for state resistance to ObamaCare. The underlying bill was in need of strengthening, so Senator Tom Davis has offered an amendment that would make the bill airtight.

How Your Members of Congress Voted on the Debt Ceiling

On February 7th, the debt ceiling, which had been suspended, snapped back into place, leaving the United States saddled with $17.3 trillion in debt.  To their shame, Republican leaders in both chambers never even considered attaching meaningful spending reforms to the debt ceiling bill. Instead, much of the debate inside D.C. involved attaching measures that would have actually increased spending.

The Top Ten Bad Votes of Senator Mitch McConnell

Top 10 Bad Votes by Mitch McConnell 1. McConnell Voted to Let Harry Reid Fund ObamaCare(2013, RCV 206) Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky voted to end debate and allow Senate Democrats to re-insert funding for ObamaCare into the Continuing Resolution to fund the federal government. Although McConnell did vote against the final bill, he and all Republicans knew that voting for cloture to end debate would allow Senator Harry Reid to fund ObamaCare by a party-line vote, and thus a vote for cloture was a de facto vote to fund ObamaCare.
