Sen. Mitch McConnell's re-election campaign accuses Matt Bevin of lying on Conn. grant request

McConnell camp cites liens statement

U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell’s re-election campaign is accusing his Republican primary opponent of lying on an application for a grant.

The campaign provided documents that show Bevin Bros. Manufacturing Co. was still under a federal tax lien after the company fell $74,000 behind in taxes when Matthew Bevin signed a statement in 2012 saying that no liens existed.

Bevin couldn’t be reached for comment, his campaign said. But it issued a statement accusing McConnell of lying about Bevin’s record.

“Quite frankly this is a shameful display unbecoming of the senior senator from Kentucky,” Bevin said in a statement.

The grant was a $100,000 appropriation from Connecticut to help rebuild the company in East Hampton, Conn., after a fire destroyed the bell manufacturer’s plant.

Bevin has said that he didn’t seek out the grant to pay for the plant, which was not insured, but that state and local officials approached him about the money to help rebuild.

Bevin Bros. was at risk of closing after a 2012 fire from a lightning strike. Bevin agreed to apply for the grant and reopen the company, of which he became president in 2011.

Bevin has said he has since paid off all outstanding debts. But the McConnell campaign says he lied to get the grant.

When Bevin signed paperwork June 26, 2012, applying for the grant, he signed a statement that said “there are no federal tax claims or liens assessed against the applicant.” In fact, a lien dated Oct. 19, 2009, was still in effect.

In an interview with Buzzfeed, a website that broke the story, Bevin emphasized another clause in the application that required him to certify that the company “filed all federal, state and municipal income and other tax returns which are required to be filed, and has paid, or made provision for the payment, of all taxes which have become due ...”

Bevin said at the time, the company had entered into a payment plan with the federal government to pay the $74,283 debt. He told the website the company paid the debt in September of 2012, less than three months after he signed the statement.

Jesse Benton, McConnell’s campaign manager, said the campaign has been in contact with officials in Connecticut, who he said are trying to determine if any laws were broken. Officials with the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, which administered the grant, did not respond to a request for comment.

Fight the NRA: 28,117 gun deaths since Sandy Hook must be remembered

There's a mass shooting in America every five days. Why do we lack the courage to do something about it?

As of this week, estimates are that 28,177 Americans have died of gun violence since the Newtown, Conn. school shootings.

That’s 90 people every single day.

This includes a 2-year-old who, last weekend, fatally shot herself with a loaded .22-caliber pistol she found in her family’s living room. And it includes the 12-year-old who earlier this week opened fire at his middle school in Nevada and the teacher he killed in the shooting.

It includes, frankly, 28,177 more people than it should. And most of those 28,177 people don’t even register on our public radar as we become disgustingly numbed to the everyday prevalence of gun violence in our communities.

We don’t know all the solutions to gun violence and violence in general. But not having the perfect answer doesn’t mean we should do nothing at all — and we know some very simple and, not incidentally, very popular measures that we could take to curb gun violence.

Almost 9 in 10 Americans support universal background checks for gun sales — which is also supported by 75 percent of actual NRA members. Seventy percent of Americans support bans on military-style semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. Even a strong majority of NRA members think that people with certain types of recent criminal charges should not be able to buy guns and that illegally selling guns should carry a minimum two year prison sentence.

In addition to expanding mental health treatment and access for all Americans (Obamacare, anyone?), these simple gun safety laws would make a serious dent in our runaway gun violence epidemic. So why the inaction?

The persistence of the minority fringe trumps the desires of the reasonable majority. Tyranny of the majority, this ain’t.

But the other factor is surely the irony that we have become so inoculated to the massive and ever-present reality of gun violence that we shake our collective fist less and less vociferously in its constant wake. According to one report, there is a mass shooting every five days in the United States. Every five days! That is nothing short of horrifying. And yet like many horrors of a grand scale, whether global widespread poverty or rampant domestic violence against women, such social issues can seem overwhelming and therefore intractable.

Once in a while, an episode shocks our conscience and captures our collective attention for a moment or two, such as when a gunman bursts into an elementary school and kills six adults and 20 children in less than five minutes. But more often, sadly, the cases of violent shootouts in cities like Chicago or suicides in small towns across America are so absurdly commonplace that we barely bat an eye. Or phone our members of Congress.

What’s most sad about this state of affairs is not that the overwhelming majority of Americans support common sense gun laws, or even that a majority of responsible gun owners support such laws and yet nothing happens. Nor is the most depressing fact that Congress fails to stand up to the fringe power of the NRA or that President Obama, generally ineffective at wielding political capital even when he has it, is not adept at pushing through Congress the basic reforms that are in all of our best interest.

No, what’s most sad is that 28,177 Americans have died in less than a year because of gun violence — a number that would never be zero, but would certainly be much lower if we patched our broken laws to ensure that dangerous people don’t have access to dangerous weapons.

And for those 28,177 families, even one less death would be a big deal.

http://www.salon.com/2013/10/25/fight_the_nra...

These loons on here is a testament to why we need background checks.

For 5 years you have been told Obama is gonna knock on your door and take your guns.

And for 5 years gun manufacturers have enjoyed record profits

How does it feel to be played for suckers?

They aren't coming for your guns. They are coming for you Social Security Check. PAY ATTENTION

When you think owning a gun is more of a right than being cared for when you are sick, you really need to re-examine your priorities.

How shameless Christian con artists took over the GOP

Conservative politicians are exploiting their voters the same way some church leaders exploit believers

The culture of fundamentalist Christianity has had profound impacts on the Republican party in the past few decades, moving Republicans to the right on various issues and forcing Republicans to prioritize gay-bashing and attacks on reproductive rights. The shutdown, however, ended up demonstrating something even more sinister.

Republicans are no longer just cribbing their political ideology from fundamentalist Christianity. Increasingly, conservative politicians are abandoning the basic task of representing the interests of their voters and instead are exploiting their voters in the same way televangelists and other fundamentalist charlatans exploit the true believers that come to them looking for spiritual salvation.

Ted Cruz is the most prominent example, at least in the past month. After the shutdown debacle, it became clear that Cruz has no interest in using his position as a Texas senator to work on behalf of the voters who got him there. Instead, his M.O. is pure sleazy televangelist: Lots of public grandstanding to convince his marks, previously known as constituents, that he’s on their side, for the sole purpose of shaking them down for money and support without offering anything in return.

The Houston Chronicle lamented ever endorsing Cruz, comparing him unfavorably to his predecessor Kay Baily Hutchinson. Hutchinson actually bothered to represent her voters, putting a priority on the state’s economic development. Cruz is as different from Hutchinson as a miracle-promising conman taking old ladies for their Social Security checks is from the local minister who actually bothers to do the unglamorous work of holding hands, wiping tears and performing weddings and funerals for parishioners. Being an actual working politician is boring. Cruz is a new breed of conservative politician who is forsaking even the semblance of governance for mugging for the camera and then cashing some more checks.

That Cruz resembles a faith healer selling lies to gullible people more than a politician working to represent the interests of his voters shouldn’t be too surprising. His family is wrapped up with some of the worst of the worst when it comes to sleazy preachers seeking to exploit vulnerable people.

Cruz’s father is a member of Purifying Fire Ministries, founded by Suzanne Hinn, the wife of one of the nation’s most despicable fundamentalist conmen, Benny Hinn. Hinn is a minister only in the loosest sense of the word: He goes about the world conducting fake faith-healing “miracles” that make him a lot of money, but he doesn’t actually provide any services real people need. It’s all just magic tricks to con the rubes out of their hard-earned money.

Of course, Cruz is far from the only politician who apparently models his career off fraudulent fundamentalist preachers who love self-aggrandizing drama but don’t care too much about, well, caring for their people. The all-flash-no-substance model is beginning to take over the Republican party. While Sarah Palin may be wedged by party leaders out of having any position of power anymore, her run as a celebrity-politician signaled a new era of leaders who are far more interested in grandstanding dramatics than they could ever be in doing the hard work of governing.

It’s not just that Palin is a camera hog who has tried repeatedly to even get into the reality show business. She notoriously quit her actual job as governor to focus full time on her “job” of being a rabble rouser.

CONtinued:

Michele Bachmann loves praising Jesus in front of the camera, but ended up deciding not to run for re-election when the spotlight was put on her campaign’s possible corruption. Rand Paul paints himself as a filibustering hero taking on worldwide evil, but the reality is that his crusades are all dramatics without much substance.

Republicans love to accuse Obama of being an empty suit, but the Republican bench is where you have to go to see politicians living the life of arena-packing fundamentalist charlatans, who talk a big game but aren’t interested in delivering real services to their followers. The entire House of Republicans is quickly becoming notorious for being a bunch of do-nothings who love preening for the cameras but can’t be bothered to govern.

The entire battle over Obamacare shows that the heavy dramatics/minimal substance model brought over from religious charlatans has become the way the Republican Party does business these days.

It’s not just the 42-and-counting votes to repeal Obamacare. It’s that Republicans have decided to actively screw their constituents over in order to pose like true heroes for the cause.

The Medicaid expansion is the classic example. Generally speaking, even if voters in a state disapprove of the federal government spending tax money on a program, representatives who can’t end the disapproved-of federal program will opt for their state to take the money. Otherwise, it’s not fair to the voters. They paid into the federal tax accounts, and should be able to see their share coming back to them for that. This need to be fair to their voters means Republican politicians may vote the way voters want them to on social programs, but at the end of the day, if the programs are going to exist, they’re going to take their fair share.

But most Republican governors and legislatures have opted this go-round to refuse to take on the Medicaid expansion, even though that means turning down their fair share of the money their voters have paid into the system already. It’s about making a dramatic gesture to make the audience ooh and ah, all while hoping they don’t notice they’re not actually getting the results they wanted. Much like a faith healer hitting you on the head and leaving town with your money before you realize you’re not actually cured, Republicans know that the only result of this gesture is that the voters are going to pay their tax money without seeing any return on their investment. It’s a complete abdication of the basic responsibilities of looking out for the interests of the voters.

Obviously, the right has always had a charlatan side, with plenty of self-appointed leaders viewing the faithful as marks to bilk for cash instead of giving people the services promised.

Faith healers and other religious conmen have preyed on fundamentalist Christian audiences for over a century now. As historian Rick Perlstein wrote in the Baffler, conservative media has long subsisted on selling snake oil to their followers and running mail order schemes to defraud conservative readers while making the leaders wealthy. But, by and large, Republicans of the past did consider it a duty to actually work for the people who elected them. That relationship has fundamentally changed. Like megachurch pastors who praise Jesus and pass the collection plate but can’t remember their parishioners’ names, the modern Republican sees the voters as rubes he can hoodwink into sending him to D.C. while not doing any actual work for them.

Still waiting for a Repub to explain how a person having insurance is bad for a hospital or provider.
.
Hospitals provided $41 billion in care for which no payment was received in 2011, up from $3.9 billion in 1980, according to a January 2012 report by the American Hospital Association. About 25 percent of uncompensated care stems from insured patients.
