House Republican Refuses to Defer Pay During
Shutdown, Says “I Need My Paycheck”

Rep. Ellmers said:

“I need my paycheck. That’s the bottom line. I understand that there may be some other members who are deferring their paychecks, and I think that’s admirable. I’m not in that position.”

Now she may very well need her paycheck — I’m not doubting that. But then so do the over 800,000 Americans the government shutdown has put on furlough who might not be receiving theirs.

But I guess it’s nice to need your paycheck and still be getting it. That’s not something hundreds of thousands of Americans can say right now thanks to the right-wing antics going on in Congress
To be fair, Rep. Ellmers isn’t the only one in Congress who’s opting to receive pay during the shutdown. There are plenty of others, both Democrats and Republicans, who are choosing to collect their paycheck. If you ask me, none of them should be paid for not doing their job — which is why they should pass Democratic Rep. Rick Nolan’s “No Government, No Pay” act (but they probably won’t).

The lives of thousands hang in the balance right now while people like Rep. Ellmers simply prove they don’t get it. Her official website lists her husband as a general surgeon. Now what exactly does a general surgeon make, you ask? Well, according to CNNMoney, the median pay for one comes in around $216,000 per year, with some making over $400,000.

So, even with just her husband’s salary, based on the information listed on her official site, they rank in the top 2 percent of Americans as far as income goes—but she “needs” her paycheck.

Well, if she needs it so badly, maybe it’s time she started speaking out against this Republican temper tantrum which has shut our government down.

Maybe she should publicly state that John Boehner needs to let the House vote on the Senate’s resolution (which would easily pass if he did) so the government could be reopened almost immediately.

Because while the wife of a general surgeon making six-figures might need her paycheck, so do the hundreds of thousands of American workers who might not be paid come their next payday thanks to this ridiculous Republican-forced government shutdown.

Which is something these Republicans simply don’t seem to understand. This shutdown isn’t a game.

There are thousands of Americans that face an uncertain future due to the antics that are being pushed by a handful of tea party-backed Republicans and their cowardly Speaker of the House, John Boehner.

But it’s okay, they still get paid. Who cares about the 800,000 who might not, right?

President Obama Embarrasses Republicans for Their Government Shutdown in Epic Speech

One thing this government shutdown has clearly proven is that Republicans have simply lost their minds. Looking at the “logic” many of these people are using, I often feel like they simply don’t understand the English language—or reality for that matter.

I’m simply fed up with these right-wing antics, holding our government hostage for their own partisan agendas. And it’s not just me — a large majority of Americans don’t agree with their decision to shut down the government over “Obamacare.” The fact of the matter is the American people had their chance to “reject Obamacare,” as Republicans claim they’re doing, last November. Instead they overwhelmingly re-elected President Obama and gave more power to Democrats in both the House and the Senate.

It appears President Obama has had more than enough of this right-wing insanity as well. He called much of it out in a speech yesterday morning at a construction company in Maryland, dishing the facts and destroying the ridiculous Republican talking points we’ve been subjected to these last few days. He also pointed specifically to a couple of the more asinine comments that have been made by some of those who are behind this government shutdown.

Here’s the whole speech, via PBS NewsHour:

He reiterated the fact that the government shutdown could end almost immediately, except House Speaker Boehner refuses to let the Senate’s resolution come up for a vote:

“The only thing that is keeping the government shut down; the only thing preventing people from going back to work, and basic research starting back up, and farmers and small business owners getting their loans; the only thing preventing that from happening is that Speaker John Boehner won’t even let the bill get a yes or no vote, because he doesn’t want to anger the extremists in his party. That’s all. That’s what this whole thing is about.”

He talked about the games Republicans seem to be playing with this shutdown, and how many of them have wanted this shutdown all along:

“Just the other day, one tea party Republican called the idea of a shutdown “wonderful.” Another said that a shutdown is “exactly what we wanted.”

Well they got exactly what they wanted, now they’re trying to figure out how to get out of it.

Just yesterday one House Republican said,“We’re not gonna be disrespected, we have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.” That was a quote!”

CONtinued:

And he spoke about how Republicans have completely failed at doing their job, yet still seem to think they deserve to “get” something extra in return for completing routine tasks:

“If you’re being disrespected it’s because of that attitude you’ve got, that you deserve to get something for doing your job. Everybody here just does their job, right? If you’re working here and in the middle of the day you just stopped and said ‘you know what, I wanna get something, but I don’t know exactly what I’m gonna get — but I’m just gonna stop working till I get something, I’m gonna shut down the whole place until I get something.’ You’d get fired! Right?! Because the deal is you’ve already gotten hired, you’ve got a job, you’re getting a paycheck, and so you also are getting the pride of doing a good job and contributing to a business and looking out for your fellow workers, that’s what you’re getting. It shouldn’t be any different for a member of Congress.”

And he’s absolutely right about everything he said.
Many Republicans are cheering this shutdown despite the fact that it’s shut down national parks, monuments and has left hundreds of thousands of Americans either sent home or working without pay. Michele Bachmann has even said she hasn’t seen the GOP this happy in a long time.
The fact remains that if Boehner let the Senate resolution go to a vote, it would easily pass and the government would reopen. Oh, and “Obamacare” would be funded—which is, of course, why he won’t let it come up for a vote. And the only reason he’s not allowing it be voted on is because doing so would anger the radical base of House Republicans, which might cost him his job as Speaker of the House.

Glad to know Boehner is putting the American people ahead of his petty desire to remain Speaker.
So not only are Republicans shutting down the government, they’re obstructing a vote that would reopen the government.

Then I absolutely love the quote Obama stated verbatim from Republican Representative Marlin Stutzman, who said Republicans won’t be “disrespected” and they’re going to get something out of this—he just has no idea what that even is.

Come again? What the hell is wrong with these people?

I guess this is what happens when millions of Americans elect individuals who run for government office—while opposing the very same government they seek to be a part of.

I honestly don’t even feel as if I’m living in the same reality as these people, and the saddest part is many Republicans are cheering this asinine behavior. I really feel as if using English to communicate with today’s Republican party is just as pointless as using English to communicate with someone who only speaks Chinese. It simply doesn’t do me any good.

The language these people seem to use is literally “crazy.” It sounds very much like English—it just doesn’t make any damn sense.

But I was glad to see the President Obama I like “the most” show up today. The direct,“take-no-crap-from-thes e-right-wing-radicals” President Obama. I just wish he would show up more often. I understand he wants to try to be a “uniter,” but he needs to understand it’s never going to happen.

I’d imagine most liberals would probably agree, we’d much rather see this President Obama. The one who isn’t afraid to directly call out ridiculous right-wing behavior.

UNBELIEVABLE: Obama closes Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial over shutdown

NEW YORK POST — Tourists travelling to Omaha Beach to pay their respects to the 9,387 military dead at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial will find it closed, a victim of the U.S. government’s partial shutdown.

The site overlooking the D-Day invasion beaches is one of 24 U.S. military cemeteries overseas that have closed to visitors since Monday. Ten more cemeteries in in France, as well as others in various European countries as well as Mexico, Panama, Tunisia and the Philippines, will remain closed for the duration of the shutdown.

The cemeteries are maintained by the American Battle Monuments Commission, set up after the First World War. Nearly 125,000 U.S. servicemen and women are buried at its cemeteries, and an additional 94,000 are commemorated on tablets of the missing.

LAWMAKER: OBAMA STILL BLOCKING HEROES FROM MEMORIALS
'What about our Vietnam veterans? What about our Korean veterans?'

A government shutdown nearly prevented World War II veterans from visiting the Washington memorial built in their honor, but Rep. Steven Palazzo, R-Miss., and several of his colleagues removed the barricades. Their actions allowed the veterans to experience the memorial and instantly made the site a focal point of the shutdown debate.

GOVERNMENT WORRIED ABOUT CITIZEN UPRISING
Exclusive: Patrice Lewis reveals why Big Brother is desperate to control Americans

...

This week it was reported that “The director of the National Security Agency says the agency collects data from social networks and other private databases to hunt terror suspects but is not using the information to build dossiers, or personal files, on Americans.” Uh-huh.

Additionally:“Top U.S. intelligence officials are revealing more about their spying in an effort to defend the National Security Agency from charges that it has invaded the privacy of Americans on a mass scale. Yet the latest disclosure – the NSA tried to track Americans’ cell phone locations – has only added to the concerns of lawmakers”[emphasis added].

Why is this happening? What’s with the government’s fascination – no, obsession – with keeping tabs on anything and everything we do?

There is endless speculation, of course, but ultimately it is to prevent a citizen uprising.

Like slave owners, our overseers are petrified that we will revolt. History has shown, over and over again, that a people can take oppression for only so long before they rise up in explosive anger. That is, after all, what the Declaration of Independence was all about. The American Revolution was a revolution against its own government.

I've seen you explain this to them many times. None of these republicans understand or know what a CR is or does.

All any of them are capable of doing is copying and pasting. And they don't understand what 'unnamed source' means to a stories credibility.

Unnamed sources is a National Enquirer story. No one (but low IQ republicans) believes anything in those rags.
