A Note to Clark County Republicans

by lewwaters

Just a note for those Republicans calling for Republicans to vote Democrat or abstain voting at all (thereby enabling another Democrat to be elected), for you that are upset and believing Jaime Herrera Beutler does not vote how you desire often enough, think of how often Carolyn Long will vote your way as a Democrat firmly entrenched in the 3rd Congressional District representative seat and opposed to every issue you support.

In the case of state legislators, again consider how Democrats, already in a comfortable majority will run over you with tax increase, LGBT Education, Gun Control and bans with even fewer Republicans to try and counter their moves.

If you think it will be a “cake walk” to retake any seat you give up to Democrats now, you’re as dumb as a box of rocks. A district may very well be “conservative” now, but give it up to the Democrats to prove some point only switches that district to Liberal.

Really! What in the hell are you people thinking?

Super Committe Set to Fail, Tea Party Identifies $9.7 Trillion in Cuts

by lewwaters

As we read of the so-called Super Committee set to fail, as we all knew it would, hundreds of Tea Party activists have identified $9.7 Trillion in budget cuts that could balance the budget, shrink government and set us on the road to fiscal responsibility.

They can expect to be ignored as Super Committee failure is what was expected to happen as Obama and Democrats received the $ Trillions of dollars for debt limit increases they desired this summer.

We all knew it was a sham and now we are seeing proof once again that Washington D.C. politicians are sticking it to taxpayers instead of doing what is needed to turn our stumbling economy around.

Herrera Beutler on Federal Funding Availability for the I-5 Bridge Replacement

by lewwaters

Taped August 4, 2011 on Jaime Herrera Beutler’s tele-townhall. Her reply to the question on whether or not federal funding is still available for the bridge project.

Of concern to me, the song & dance in regards to local matching funds. She mentions taxes, but we have also been hearing about tolls. While she calls for a county-wide vote, does she support or oppose Clark County residents coughing up more taxes or paying tolls in perpetuity to pay for a bridge and extending Light Rail into Clark County?

Debt Limit Increase Met Herrera Beutler’s Three Criteria

by lewwaters

Jaime voted for increasing the debt limit, along with several other Democrats and Republicans, against the wishes of the Tea Party. She said it “wasn’t an easy vote for me.”

Okay, but it seems to me she voted for the other proposals Boehner put forth that also raised the debt limit.

Listening to her explanation above, I can understand the first two criteria she outlines. But, for the life of me, I don’t understand how raising the debt puts a down payment on our staggering debt or how overspending is addressed by more increased spending.

I have never been able to balance my checkbook like that.

If the Chinese can get it, why can’t our congress?

“The only way the Americans have come up with to improve economic growth has been to take on new loans to repay the old ones. To eat May’s grain in April, however, will never be a permanent solution to a problem,” the official Xinhua news agency said.

Herrera Beutler Screws Us and She’s Frustrated?

by lewwaters

I can’t say I’m surprised to one, see Jaime Herrera Beutler (R Wa 03) support the largest debt increase in the history of the nation, two express frustration over the deal she voted for and three, justify selling out constituents.

But that is just what she has done, Herrera Beutler admits frustration with debt-limit deal

No one else should be surprised either. This is a pattern seen during her brief tenure occupying a seat as 18th legislative district representative. After all, she didn’t bat an eyelid when she crossed the aisle to help Democrats strip the last $229 Million of the states Rainy Day Fund last year.

She justified that boner as to prevent a tax increase too, just as she did in voting for this sell-out debt limit increase.

She didn’t even bother to check out a bill she co-sponsored and twice voted for that would have forced childcare centers into the unions. That one she justified by claiming it would do such thing and having her then campaign manager, Casey Bowman issue a press release stating that I and any others exposing her record were “spreading false information.”
