A draft of the GOP leadership’s proposal to lift the debt ceiling through December 2014 is circulating and it’s the equivalent of a letter to Santa for the party’s base.
The bill, obtained by the National Review, tacks on items including a one-year delay of Obamacare; tax reform in the image of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI); approval of the Keystone pipeline; expanded offshore drilling and other pro-oil and coal energy reforms; increases in military spending coupled with deeper cuts to domestic programs; repealing a fund in the financial regulatory reform bill; means testing for Medicare; repealing the Obamacare prevention and public health fund and medical malpractice reform.
You have two weeks, or the economy gets it. And if you are wondering how these guys got so crazy, just remember they start out crazy:
Kentucky’s chapter of College Republicans have dug up one of the weakest “gotcha” moments in recent political memory.
The group posted cell phone video of Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes being picked up by her husband at what appears to be Lexington’s Blue Grass Airport.
The video shows Grimes, who’s serving her first term as Kentucky’s secretary of state, climb into the back seat of the couple’s black Chevy Suburban while her husband wheels around her suitcase and places it into the cargo area.
Grimes then immediately pulls out her phone as her husband drives away, with no other passengers in the SUV.
“We think you’ll agree – this. is. weird,” the College Republicans said in a press release.
While it’s possible that a state official who’s running for national elected office might have some business to catch up on after a flight, the College Republicans think it reveals something more essential about Grimes’ character.
“(Grimes) thinks she’s so important that she needs to ride around town in the back seat of a black suburban … driven by personal chauffeur, her husband,” the group said.
Yes, it is very weird for someone to be picked up by their spouse at the airport. These people are clinical.
