Republicans Without Principles

Some pertinent comments from Victor Davis Hanson:

And I don’t see how they’re [Republican Trump-Haters] ever going to come back to the Republican party, and if they think they can impeach or get rid of Trump and they’re gonna save the Republican party, they don’t realize that Trump is the … he’s consequence, he’s not a catalyst. He’s a reflection of a new movement. Of people who were sick of them. And they can’t win without that core. Blue state, blue wall group. And they’re never gonna get it back with John Kasich or John McCain or any of those people… They have a visceral either dislike of people in rural Ohio or the San Joaquin Valley…

You’ve heard it before —  Politicians in Washington DC behave the same regardless of the R or D before their name.  Keeping the folks in DC in control of our lives is the default ideology of those in the federal government.

Republicans have long paid lip service to opposing big government when the Democrats are in charge, only to keep the trillions flowing once they take charge.

Republican senators on Wednesday voted to break their seven-year old promise to repeal Obamacare. In a vote on a “clean” repeal bill that would have phased out much of Obamacare’s taxes and spending while leaving its core regulations intact, seven Republicans voted “no,” denying Republicans the 50 votes that would have been required for passage. In 2015, when Republicans passed the identical bill that was vetoed by President Obama, six of those seven Republicans (save Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine) voted in favor of repeal. The reversal of the remaining senators represents a dramatic turnaround.  Here are the names of those senators that flip-flopped on repeal:

  • Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.
  • Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va.
  • Dean Heller, R-Nev.
  • John McCain, R-Ariz.
  • Lisa Murkowski R-Alaska
  • Rob Portman, R-Ohio

Uh oh, there is bipartisan agreement between Democrats and Republicans.  That usually means one thing:

There’s always a lot of talk about the benefits of reaching across the aisle. In Washington, it seems like cooperation between the two pillars of political power rarely happens. That makes it all the more disheartening when the Democrats and Republicans reach bipartisan agreement, but in a way that suffocates the American people.

Maybe growing the federal government is the only thing the two parties can agree on.

When the two parties come together and agree to increase the size of government at the expense of the everyday consumer it’s time to push back.

You’ve read on this site the continued displeasure with politics in Washington and the fact that it’s very hard to distinguish between the Republicans and Democrats.  For example, we have Obamacare that was passed in 2009 without a single Republican vote.  People were not able to keep their own doctors as promised. No one’s premiums went down by $2,500.  For eight years, Republicans campaigned for office to repeal it.  The House voted repeatedly to repeal it. Now that Republicans control the House, Senate, and White House they suddenly cannot do what they promised to do… Why is that?

Here’s another one for you courtesy of the Republicans.  Barbara Comstock, Republican Representative of Virginia, is sponsoring House Bill 257 which conflicts with our First Amendment rights by silencing Americans speaking openly about the threats we face as a nation.  If House Bill 257 is passed into law, you could be jailed for an opinion that defies political orthodoxy with regards to sharia law or radical Islam.

And yet here’s another questionable decision by Republicans: 24 Republicans banded together recently to defeat an amendment which would have ended Obama’s policy of funding “gender-reassignment” surgery for soldiers who want to live as members of the opposite sex.   The Democrat ideology insists that a person’s  gender is defined by their self-assessment and not by their biology.  The belief is that other Americans must agree with people who say they are a member of the opposite sex, and citizens should pay for their gender-changing surgeries.
