Alison Lundergan Grimes Shames Mitch McConnell Over His Vote Against Veterans

On Thursday, the Mitch McConnell-led Senate Republicans blocked a bill that would have improved veterans benefits. It was truly a “shameful display of partisan obstruction”, just as Jason Easley called it.

Since there are nearly 340,000 veterans in Kentucky, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Alison Lundergan Grimes called out her opponent, Republican Mitch McConnell, for his vote to kill the veterans benefits bill with a cowardly procedural vote.

In a statement, Ms. Grimes took McConnell to task,“Mitch McConnell’s voting record against Kentucky’s veterans and military families is inexcusable.” She continued,“It is not enough to simply offer words and empty rhetoric — we must follow through with action in support of our veterans.”

The Democrat shamed McConnell for failing to live up to our promises to our veterans,“My opponent clearly disagrees. Whether they fought in Korea or Afghanistan, we must keep our promises to our returned service men and women and deliver on our responsibility to them just as they have for each of us. They deserve to share in the economic opportunity they bravely fought to protect.”

Grimes also supports renewing the VOW to Hire Heroes Act.
Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) introduced the bill Republicans killed in a tricky procedural move similar to a filibuster. Sanders is the chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, so the fact that the bill touts “the most comprehensive legislation for veterans to come before the Senate in decades” should not come as a surprise.

Mitch McConnell’s disdain for our veterans isn’t new. In 2012, he led forty Republican members of the Senate to betray veterans by killing a jobs bill for veterans. The Veterans Job Corps Act of 2012 would have spent $1 billion over five years to put veterans to work tending to federal lands, and in the nation’s police and fire departments.

Again in 2012, Republican leadership in the Senate quietly condoned the actions of a single coward who put a hold on a cost of living increase for disabled veterans, just so they could play petty partisan politics with Obama and deny him a “win”.

Republicans were shocked during their 2012 fiscal cliff disaster when President Obama fought with Republicans, insisting that benefits for disabled people and veterans not be cut.

Doesn’t it just make you want to wave a flag while failing to live up to our promises to our wounded warriors?

And then there is the Republican sequester (they are on record as championing it and pushing for it and gloating about getting it on Fox News — it’s only when confronted with the results that they deny any knowledge of it and blame Democrats). In June 2013, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported that Fort Knox would lose 3,300 troops in the next six years because of defense spending reductions.

The list of Republican perfidy on veterans issues is too long to innumerate here in anything remotely resembling its entirety. But one thing is for sure — Mitch McConnell has met his match, because Alison Lundergan Grimes isn’t going to be quiet about his hypocrisy.

Oh yeah, and this one....waiting on my Harley to roar up the road....hahaha Life is good.:)

The End is Near for the Extremist Wing of the Republican Party

The end is near for the Christian right. No, they are not about to be beamed up into heaven , rewarded for their piousness, on a glorious ride symbolizing the rapture of the church. Instead, they are about to wither and die as a political movement in the United States, victims of their own hatred and hubris. Yes, for over three decades, theocrats rode an unholy alliance with the modern Republican Party to unprecedented heights of power. Ronald Reagan, two George Bushes, and hundreds upon hundreds of Republican Senators and Congressmen were their willing enablers.

Big business Republicans, neo-conservatives, and libertarian economists alike embraced Christian fundamentalists as they exploited bigotry and fear to push free market economics and expansionist foreign policies, while giving lip service to school prayer, ending abortion, and preserving traditional marriage from the onslaught of the “homosexual agenda”. Karl Rove exploited Christian right bigotry by pushing anti-gay ballot measures in 2004 that would herd evangelical conservatives to the polls to cast their votes for George W. Bush. That was a decade ago, when the Christian right’s influence in American politics was unmistakable and their grip on the GOP iron tight.

The Christian right miscalculated badly and failed to anticipate the backlash that would follow. Chamber of Commerce chapters and major corporations based in Arizona balked at the measure, citing the potential for lost tourism revenue and lawsuits. GOP politicians piled on. Arizona Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain joined the opposition. Florida Governor Rick Scott and 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney also rose in opposition. Politicians who had long embraced Christian right extremism for politically expedient reasons more than on principal, were now turning on the fundamentalists at the eleventh hour.

Then on Thursday, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who like most GOP politicians had long courted Christian extremists, sealed their fate with her veto pen. In that moment, the lipstick wore off the Judas kiss that the Republican Party leadership made with Christian extremists years ago. The Christian right long wielded disproportionate influence in the halls of Congress, with the likes of Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, and James Dobson seducing GOP politicians with promises of fealty and winning them over to socially reactionary policies. Ronald Reagan enthusiastically brought the “moral majority” into his winning coalition, and since 1980 GOP politicians have relied upon evangelical right-wingers to help propel them to victory. Though they were never a true majority, the bible thumpers on the right were able to bully timid Republican politicians to press their agenda in exchange for contributions and votes.

However, now that bigotry is no longer a recipe for electoral success, the toxic embrace between pro-business Republicans and moralizing troglodytes has been pulled apart. As a political force, the Christian right is unraveling at warp speed. Even the Bible Belt is unbuckling at a rate that would have been unimaginable just a few years ago. Sure Mike Huckabee and Rush Limbaugh still pollute America’s political discourse with their jeremiads against unseemly gays and promiscuous single women, but their taunts fall mostly on deaf ears outside the shrinking realm of “true believers” who nourish their hateful minds with unhealthy doses of talk radio and FOX News.

CONtinued:

The battle will continue, maybe for years, maybe even decades. However, America has already rendered its judgement. Same sex marriages are now legal in 17 states and on the verge of becoming legal in several more. Millennial voters overwhelmingly support marriage equality. The Christian right can do nothing more but dig their heels in and fight a lost cause. No doubt with self-righteous fervor they will continue to fight to the bitter end, enduring one humiliating defeat after another in the years ahead, as America moves further and further away from the Christian right’s outdated prejudices. There will be no sound of trumpets to announce the end of days for the Christian right as a viable political movement, but the end is coming. In fact, it may already be here.

You are a fool. I often wonder where people like you get these ideas.

This is not even a debate

If you look at who is signing up for Obamacare the majority are people who are now qualified for Medicaid and they did not qualify for Medicaid before. Obamacare changed the rules of Medicaid eligibility. You can sign up right through the exchanges and you are enroled in Medicaid. Who in the world do you think pays for Medicaid? JOE 6-PACK taxpayer.

There are about a dozen hidden taxes in Obamacare for all sorts of things like Medical Devices, setting up exchanges etc etc.

To deny this is absolutely ignorant.

I could provide about a million LINKS for all of this

I would rather you simply say you like Obamacare because it gives away more free stuff to people who can't afford it. That would at least be an honest answer from a socialist koolaid drinker like you.
I like it because the freeloaders minimum wagers such as yourself are the ones who are finally paying for your own healthcare.

And it's easy to say you can post a million links proving your point...... And then not do it.:-D

You freeloaders have to pay for your own and quit depending on me and others who have worked all our lives for your free ride.

Medicaid is a Health Program for the poor. It is entirely paid for by the Taxpayer and costs the ObamaCare person nothing.

Now who is the brainwashed idiot that is uniformed.

You know something you Liberals are really pathetic for not even understanding what is going on.
Some other things you need to educate yourself on super stupid.... Healthcare costs are growing at the slowest rates in 50 years.

Lets just dive into that and shoot holes in republican logic.

1) slowest growth in 50 years, yet Big Pharms are still making record profits? Hmmmmm how's that work?

2) with the amount of people who are out of work, they just go to the emergency room. And can't pay. Yet still growing at record low rates? Hmmmm

3) republican math never adds up. And it's fun pointing it out.

Carry on low IQ/low information republican sheeple.

I see what's going on, Republican business men have been raping their employees for years. Now that the cost of living is so high, and wages so low, people can barely pay bills and still afford enough gas to get to work. That's what's going on, now for it to get any better those same business men are going to have to get off the working mans/woman's back's and bring pay scales up to where people can afford to live.If Republican's want people off Public Assistance, create some job's for them and pay them a decent wage, make it more profitable for them to work.
