The List....
House Republican leaders used a secret criteria list to decide which conservatives to purge from powerful House committees, Breitbart News has learned. As this time, it appears they will keep the criteria list hidden from the public, too. Spokespeople for members of House GOP leadership have refused to discuss details about the list on the record with press.
Because GOP Leadership won't discuss the list, it’s unclear what specific criteria the list contained and how much of a role it played in the conservative purge. It’s also unclear which member of House Republican leadership initiated this process.
In remarks to the Heritage Foundation’s Bloggers Briefing on Tuesday, Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp confirmed the existence of such a list.
“We’ve heard from multiple sources that someone walked in with a list of votes and said if you didn’t reach a particular scorecard of what was considered the right vote – which by the way, in most cases, was not the conservative position – then [they said]‘we’re going to have to remove you from the committee,’” Huelskamp said.
“All that took place behind closed doors, which is again a problem with Washington, D.C.– whether it’s the budget negotiations, whether it’s everything else, it’s usually done behind closed doors," he explained. "I think, as conservatives, this is where we can win: We’ve got to be willing and able to talk about things in public instead of being afraid of actual public scrutiny.”
Huelskamp later told Breitbart News he thinks House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and Whip Kevin McCarthy owe it to the American people to be transparent about this decision making process – and that they should publicly release the list.
“In the name of transparency and openness, they most certainly should release the criteria,” Huelskamp said in an email.“Republican leadership promised America a new era of transparency – they should deliver on it.”

WE WANT TO SEE THE LIST!!
oh please!!
Well looks like that demoted cry-baby just found out Santa Claus really DOES have a Naughty and Nice list. LUMPS OF COAL will be his gift this Christmas.

This guy was actually surprised there was a list kept of who voted and how they voted? Last checked, the congressional record has all that information for anyone to see. If the congressional record is a secret, it has the worst kept one's in history. What he always assumed is "THE LIST" would only be used against the opposing team.

What the DEMOTED US House of Representative just found out is when you live on the edge, you can fall off. Let's say it all together... HEE, HAW YA DUMMY!

Most economists agree that by 2016 the economy will be robust.
I realize, Nobraina,that you ignore reality, but the economy has been improving for 2 years.
Every poll shows Americans blame GOP for fiscal cliff.

So many people seem to miss that tidbit. The capital markets exploded during President Obama's time in office. If someone's 401k has kept on losing money since the President took office either the company sucks, your financial adviser sucks or there's some stealing going on.

You may need to set each of the below charts to the 5 year setting. I know most of the ignorant or blind to the facts type won't bother to even check this data out but it's there to see.

Republican Rep. Virginia Foxx sure loves her traditional values.
She believes defense authorizations bills are the perfect place to include some good old fashioned discrimination against gay service members, just like Jesus said.

She has "very little tolerance" for people who need to borrow money to put themselves through college instead of doing it the traditional, non-loan-needing way she did when she went to college 700 years ago, as the Declaration of Independence clearly demands.

And she's an old school feminist, which is why she is an ardent supporter of any and all bills to strip women of their reproductive rights, just like the suffragists did when they marched and starved themselves, demanding to have fewer rights. In fact, as Foxx explained, "[N]obody has ever fought more for the rights of women than I have."

Interesting part is the losers don't think they won like tea baggers do.
Not talking about sports but in the classroom. Not every classroom. Not every school. But an underlying progressive philosophy of political correctness is permeating and taking hold in all public schools - some to a greater degree than others.

It's not that much of a stretch to know some people are going to throw in the towel and get on the bandwagon. It's human nature not to want to feel like you're getting the short end of the stick.

Or feel like you're the schmuck busting your butt.

You are so f*cking stupid you think if you give the CEO of Apple a tax cut that he will hire more people.
This is because you are stupid, ignorant, & uninformed
For the unpteenth time, we all pay from the same F*cking chart.
Learn how to use that chart someday & maybe you will cease to be so naive & uninformed.
If you make $50k taxable, Bill Gates pays the same rate on his first $50k as you pay on yours..
What is not fair about that?
But hey, what do I expect from an Anti-American POS like you who thinks supporting his country is being punished.
"real dumb"
You continue to prove the ignorance and the fact you are a coward. The question was and is why should American's be punished for success? Why because the make more monies should they be taxed at a higher rate than others? Fuckthe tax tables, no deductions. Lets make it fair. Flat tax all pay the same rate.
You are just an envioussonofabitch with your hand out. You talk about others being anti-American, big talk from a coward who has never served his country in any way.
Answer the question, why should any one pay a higher rate on their income than you do? You are special, not likely you are a cowardly piece ofcrap.

<quoted text>That is because the goals of the educational system are no longer serving our students, nor are our students serving the needs of business. If the goal is to prepare students for the world of work, we should be offering trade and living skills classes as a prerequisite to graduation, rather than attempting to prepare them for college degrees which most of them will not pursue. In fact, even if we ARE successful at getting kids to apply for college post-graduation, we are still not preparing them to be productive citizens. More than 80% of the subjects offered at the high school level, contain material which the average student will never use again once they graduate. This has to change.
I agree 110%.

Ann Coulter shocked Sean Hannity on Wednesday when she conceded that she thinks Republicans should let tax rates for the rich go up.
House Republicans are currently battling President Obama over whether or not to hike taxes on the top 2 percent of earners in the negotiations over the so-called "fiscal cliff."
After Coulter started to say that Republicans should concede on taxes on the very rich, Hannity wondered why the House didn't just pass a bill extending the Bush tax cuts for everyone.
"OK fine, let's do that, but in the end, at some point, if the Bush tax cuts are repealed and everyone's taxes go up, I promise you Republicans will get blamed for it," she said. "It doesn't mean you cave on everything, but there are some things Republicans do that feed into what the media is telling America about Republicans."
"So are you saying that, for PR purposes, that they should give in to Obama on the tax rate?" Hannity asked.
"Not exactly, I--" Coulter said, before stopping herself and saying, "Well, yeah, I guess I am."
"You're saying capitulate to Obama?" Hannity stammered. "We don't have a revenue problem, Ann."
"We lost the election, Sean!" Coulter replied.

Republicans should make it very clear they are not going to stand in the way of the majority's wishes.
