Peter Schweizer is a thorn in the establishment’s side.
Now this is what the Air Force should be used for. Charter flights for members of Congress to fly down to Florida for a funeral.
Why are so many bills introduced in Congress if only 5% will ever become law? One of the reasons is that these floating bits of legislation can be used to compel companies to give money to politicians.
A great story. Ron Paul parked his little fuel sipping car next to Tip Oneil’s giant Lincoln during the fuel shortages of the 1970s, put the photo in his newsletter, and incurred the wrath of Congressional leadership.
He talks about the shutdown too.
Well, the times are a’ changing.
Matt Drudge, founder of The Drudge Report tweeted this earlier today. Better watch out statists. People are really waking up. On second thought statists, just keep doing what you are doing.

Obamacare is a bundle of crony capitalist red tape which will make your life more difficult. There are exceptions of course. If one is a drug company there is a good chance that one is going to make a ton of money with Obamacare, so your life might get better. But for most of us, this won’t be the case.
It’s a bad bill. It’s big and unwieldy (as all bills are nowadays). It’s been turned into a mini “stimulus” bill, and as it is written now a majority of “Republicans,” whatever that means now, are against the bill. But Boehner still may make it happen?
But what is Boehner going to say? As he explains in the interview, he was briefed on what was going on. He’s not going to come out and say something he officially approved of was unconstitutional. That puts his job in jeopardy, at the very least.
Leadership in both Houses of Congress are getting together to make sure Obamacare doesn’t saddle their staffs with thousand of dollars in new healthcare costs. The congresspeople are not too keen on giving up their current plans either.
I am a big fan of Justin Amash. He is principled and transparent He explains every vote he makes on his Facebook page. As far as I know there is no one else in the House or the Senate who does this.
